"Bikinis and big bootys, ya'll. That's what life's all about"
So I saw the film Spring Breakers and I was actually surprised at how much I liked it.
For those of you who have been living under a rock, Spring Breakers is that movie you've probs heard about with the Disney chicks in it. And since the info about it on IMDB is WRONG...here's a brief synopsis:
Basically what happens is four besties who go to a boring college in a boring small town want to go to Florida to have a spring break they'll never forget. Realising they have nowhere near enough money to get them out of town, they rob a local restaurant and set off.
Faith (Selena Gomez), Candy (Vanessa Hudgens), Brit (Ashley Benson) and Cotty (Rachel Korine) go WILD. Drugs, sex and drinking are obvious themes. There's a LOT of boobs shown (boys, there's incentive for you), there's not really much use of clothes and what used to be sweetheart Vanessa Hudgens apparently loves giving blow jobs.
 Anyway, the girls get caught doing drugs at a party and get thrown in jail. They're rescued by black boy rapper trapped in a white boy body with silver grillz, Alien, (James Franco) and then find themselves caught in a gangland/druglord type scenario.
The girls fall like flies and two go back home until only two are left, and the girls go to amazing lengths to have a spring break that they'll actually never forget.
The cinematography is amazing. The colours are amazing. It's a fantastic film student studyable movie.
The acting is really surprisingly good. I hated Hudgens in HSM but she's definatley lost her sweet Disney-girl badge, that's for sure.
The movie is disjointed, it skips from the present to the future, to the past and back to the present. But I guess that's to tie in with how drug-f*cked they are and the whirlwind that spring break apparently is (I wouldn't know, I'm just an Australian).
Anyway, do yourself a favour and see the film. You won't regret it!

"Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are easy."
- Dr. Suess

I've been feeling so lost lately. Stuck in a world of do-gooders and bores. In a place where everyone knows what they want, but I know nothing at all. I'm not sure if the path I'm on is right, or if I took a wrong turn somewhere along the way. My parents always wanted me to be successful...but what if I'm not? I'm stuck in an average kind of hell, stuck just beneath the water, out of reach from the future.

Where the hell did time go? What happened to sleepovers with friends and staying up all night sober and sharing secrets?

When did isolation become normal, and losing friends become okay, and nights alone become sad?

What happened.

“We mistake sex for romance. Guys are taught that pushing a girl up against a wall is romance. Sex is easy; you can do it with anyone, yourself, with batteries. Romance is when someone you like walks into a room and they take your breath away. Romance is when two people are dancing and they fit together perfectly. Romance is when two people are walking next to each other and all of a sudden they find themselves holding hands, and they don’t know how that happened.”
—John C. Moffi 

Falling in love is a bit like diving into one of those ball pits they have at children's playgrounds. At first you hesitate because, holy shit, it's scary and those plastic balls look like they could hurt. So you back away slightly, and you question what's about to happen. You look around you and you see so many happy people who have fallen head first into the pit, smiling, playing and happy. Yet you stand back and watch, still too scared to jump. Then, before you even realise what's happening, your body propels itself into the ball pit. You free fall for a moment and then land into a soft squishy pit of fun. You wallow around in happiness wondering how the hell you could have ever been scared and you soak up everything you were missing before. You float around in the ball pit oblivious to the outside world. Your friends forget your name, and you forget theirs. You're happy here. But really, you were happy before you fell into the ball pit - and you can be happy without it.

My point is: don't rely on someone else for your happiness. Most people are as happy as they choose to be.

Why I hate school but love education

"If you don't build your dreams then someone else will hire you to help build theirs."

A YouTuber under the name sulibreezy (I have no idea if this guy is actually a famous rapper) released this video about education and whether or not we really need it. I was intrigued and it really go me thinking - will it all be worth it in the end?

50 shades of YOU

"He who trims himself to suit everyone will soon whittle himself away."
- Raymond Hull

Have you ever thought about the different you’s that you do? 

There’s the work you, the in-laws you, the friends you, the parents you, the relationship you, the customer you, the gym you, the sweat-pants you, the suited up you, the shopping you, the Saturday night out you, the Saturday night in you. 

But have you ever thought about which one is the real you?

Is one of the you’s that you give out to the world the actual you, or are you a mixture of you’s or maybe none at all?

Why is it that we change the way we act/speak/behave when we’re in different situations?


Like, we’ll yell at our parents and storm off one minute then the next we’ll be happy, loud and out going as soon as our friends are around.

Is one you happier than the other? Or is it even fair to compare you’s?

Penny for your thoughts.

(Why do Saturday nights in Sophie’s have to be so complicated!?)

Yep! So fetch!

During an interview with E! News on the red carpet at Sunday night’s Screen Actor’s Guild Awards, Tina Fey announced that she is closing a deal with Paramount Pictures to develop a movie based on her masterpiece, Mean Girls!

So who knows, we might see Cady, Regina, Gretchen again soon! There’s a 30% chance Karen Smith will be in it too.

Young and sweet only seventeen

"Youth is wasted on the young."
- Oscar Wilde 

Most people say that life gets better after school ends.

And it does, for most.

But why is it that at just seventeen we are supposed to make, essentially, the most important decisions of our lives?

We’re supposed to know where we’re going in life, what we want to do, where we want to live, how we want to live.

All before actually becoming an adult.

I remember finishing year 12 and being so excited for the future, but now, at (almost) 21, I don’t see how any future I imagined at seventeen could match the future I see now.

We need to travel, to work, to experience life before life happens. 

Why are we so focussed on kids making life choices, and why are we so oblivious to the fact that it’s okay for them not to have any friggen clue about anything.

Leave them alone.

The younger generations are always useless, anyway.
