Hold on to your seat...

It's 10:30pm on a Saturday night...I'm bored, sitting on the computer. I am not used to this. So to occupy myself, I am attempting my best scary face...

HOW do I have friends?

Join me for a ponder

Do you believe in 'if it's meant to be, it will be" and "everything happens for a reason"?
I am a firm believer in these two sayings, and I think having the sort of mindset they give you is a great way to look at things. If something doesn't go the way you envisioned, there isn't much point lingering on clearly wasn't planned to happen that way!

I also think that having this sort of outlook is a good way to remain positive about things. For example, my recent garcon-related events could have left me upset/sad/depressed/annoyed/angry etc etc, but I refuse to let it. I see no point in lingering on the 'what if's' and agonizing over how things didn't go the way I may have wanted. Also, I think that these experiences (even though they may suck at times) are all learning curves, and what you learn from them helps you on the way towards what's meant to happen for you (if that makes sense?). In this way, everything that you go through contributes somehow to the bigger life picture.

 I know this is way easier said than done, particularly when feelings are involved. But the way I see it, it evidently wasn't meant to be (sorry for how cheesy that sounds), and that's cool.

Peace yo xx

Currently in Dale's world...

Firstly, apologies for the depressing post prior to this one. I had a short while of feeling sad re le garcon over the weekend. However that didn't last long and I am back to my happy self again :) Actually, life is pretty sweet atm!! Hitting the gym lots, not having to study (and hence being able to troll the net, watch tv shows and movies and read etc etc), getting lots of hours at work, hanging with's great!!

I got a new smartphone today (no not an iphone unfortunately...) and have spent a great deal of today figuring it out, getting apps and all that jazz. It's pretty awesome I must say.

Currently in Dale's world...

I'm missing: Jess & Jo!! Not able to see them at all this summer waaaaa :'(
I'm restraining from buying: Nothing at this moment of time. Most unusual for me.
I'm craving: Mum's tomato soup. Salmon. The non-alcoholic cocktails from The Flying Burrito Brothers.
I'm watching: Gilmore Girls season 4. Game of Thrones season 1.
I'm wondering: What is the meaning of life? (lol jac...)

Wednesday, 14 November 2012


So, last Thursday I journeyed up to Hamilton and then to Auckland on Saturday to go to the Coldplay concert at Mt Smart Stadium. Having never been to a big concert before, I didn't really know what to expect, though I'd heard that they put on an excellent show. I don't really know how to describe it other than in single adjectives: Amazing. Mind-blowing. Extraordinary. Fantastic. Brilliant.

Every song was a hit, Chris Martin was perfect live (and mega energetic - had to change shirts about 4 times due to sweat soakage), and the crowd were soooo into it. Such a buzz. My personal favourite was Princess of China because the band relocated to the front of the stage (it was a runway sorta shape) which was super close to us!!

Also very cool were the different coloured wristbands that every audience member got. These lit up during certain songs, in time with the music!! Soooooo awesome. The stadium looked like a Christmas tree (minus the tree part hah). The show also included fireworks, confetti blasts, a laser show and these giant inflatable ball thingys that were sent through the audience. It was truly spectacular.

After my first concert experience I can definitely say I am keen to go to many more in the future. And I love Coldplay very very much :)

The Temper Trap (most famous for Sweet Disposition) who opened for Coldplay were also amazing.
All in all, a great experience. I want to go again.

Broken cycle

Had a lovely weekend, hope you did too!! After going out every weekend (and sometimes twice) for the last 20+ weeks in a row, I broke the cycle and didn't go out on Saturday night, instead opting to study for my forthcoming exam. How sensible of me.

Have an exam on Tuesday then am heading up to Hamilton on Thursday to visit the parents then up to Auckland on Saturday for Coldplay!!! ARGH!!! excitement maximum!!

Random side note: I've been straightening my hair a lot less lately because I simply cannot be bothered and have recently become a renewed fan of the braid....which gives my hair a nice kink when taken out. Here is a pic of how my hair has been lately:

Does it look at all stylish or just messy? I'm thinking messy in this particular
Had a visit from le garcon too on Friday which was lovely :)
