It's Wed-nes-day night.

Guess what? It's Wednesday night. I know what you're thinking, "We know that Lecy, we're not stupid." But you are, since you don't know why I'm excited. Unless you do know why I am.. In that case you're not as stupid as I thought you were. But anyway, for those who don't know, I'll let you know why I'm excited. IT'S PAY DAY TOMORROW! Yay. I worked three days last week so this pay will be glorious. And I shall put lots of it in my savings for my car. Kidding, I'll pay my mother off... And then what's left will go to my savings.. I hope..

Any-who, I sent my phone away again yesterday. I'm so grumpy that the dumb people didn't even fix it. They just took my hard earned money. But at least I don't have to pay again. Let's just hope they actually fix it.

Just like every Wed-nes-day, I was going to do a wardrobe Wed-nes-day, but didn't get around to it.. I even put on cool clothes and everything. But it's just too much effort for me to take selfies sometimes. But maybe next week I'll do it.. But we all know I probably won't.

Oh, did I tell you, last Friday, when I was talking to my best friend, she asked me if I was drunk. SHE ASKED ME IF I WAS DRUNK. Because apparently, that's the kinda thing she expects me to do while my parents are away. Pfffft. I would never do that. I was just ridiculously tired from a hard days work. Also, reading till the early morning didn't exactly help my sleepy issue.. But I wasn't drunk.

Then today I was talking to her again. She didn't think I was drunk this time, which was good. And we had the most hilarious conversation about what it would be like to have kids. Then we were talking about how we can both vaguely remember this one time at my old house when our mums were hanging out we were both just causally having a feed. And by feed I mean breast feed. It was hilarious. I think I would have been like two or something so Abby must have been about three. I can confidently say that we've both re-decided we're not having kids. It's just.. ugghhhh. 

Then I was complaining about how I shouldn't complain about my boobs on my blog, so Abby was all like, "Just do it. It's funny." And other stuff I've forgotten. So I will. I just want you all to know something, I.HATE.BOOBS.SO.MUCH.
There, I let it out. I feel so much better now.

Now that I've begun talking about weird things no one cares about, I shall continue by sharing a story with you.
So tonight, I was doing a bit of a work out, cause that's what I like to do. And then I do lots of stretching and stuff after my work out. So I had almost finished, I just wanted to stretch my bridge. So I did and I held it for a bit, then we I came down, I felt like I was being stabbed by over 10 and 21 millions of knives. I was literally lying on the ground, withering in pain, for about 10 minutes. No exaggerations. So I've learnt from that to NEVER EVER stretch your bridge when you're on your period. NEVER.

 Moving on, because that is a awkward subject that I don't like talking about.

Have I told you that I've decided what I want to write my first book on? No, I haven't, because I only had the great idea this morning. Well, I want to write it set in ancient Greece. And it will be a mystery/horror book. But that's all you can know. Otherwise it'll be ruined.
I need to do lots of research about Ancient Greece before I actually start writing, but that's okay since I love that kind of history.

I need your opinion on something, should I, or should I not, dye my hair ginger? 
Let me know what'cha think.

Anywya, here's a funny photo for you all since my blog was slightly boring tonight.
So true.
And, here are some inspiring quotes. 

what is the point of being alive if you don't at least try to do something remarkable? - John Green

I'm finished now. So I shall make my awkward departure like always.

Bye bye, little unicorn-trainees.
We both know you only read my blogs to learn the way of the unicorn. No need to hide it, it's nothing to e ashamed of. Embrace your inner unicorn. Unless you don't have one.. In that case, just embrace your inner weird, everyone has that.

Lecy had a massive party. By herself.

*Running around in circles, trying to catch my unicorn tail.* 
Don't be jealous, we can't all be unicorns. Let alone cool unicorns that chase their tail. But luckily I am one of the few. So I will tell you about my glorious weekend filled with unicornness.

Well, the parents left sometime on Friday while I was at work, escaping while I wasn't home so they felt less guilty. I got a ride home with a work mate. Then the party of one had finally begun. I'd been waiting all day to get home just so I could hang out by myself and read with music playing loudly.

But, before I could read I had to make myself dinner. Because my parents don't love me enough to leave me a cooked dinner.. So I made the yummest chicken kebabs ever, with a side of potato wedges.

Then I read all night. Okay, not all night, but close, I couldn't read too much since I had work on Saturday which kinda killed the Friday night party. But at least I got to finish work two hours early on Saturday. Then Abby picked me up from work and we went to my house, had ice coffees and read our books together in the afternoon sunshine. T'was lovely. The dog attacked us. It was hilarious.
Then Abby left, and it was just me all alone. So the party began again. So I cooked. Then read. But then I finished my book so I didn't know what to do with myself so I cleaned. Weird right? But I cleaned for about two hours, then I got a new book and went to bed to read that one.
Then all I've been doing today is dancing around the house to Mumford & Sons playing really loudly. I also fell asleep outside when I was reading in the afternoon. Now I'm the slightest bit sun burnt, and it isn't even summer yet! But I guess that's what you get when you fall asleep in the sun for almost an hour..

But now my parents are home the glorious party has come to an end.

So I have decided I will build a blanket fort tonight. Because that's what all the cool unicorns do when the party ends. It's like the sprinkles on cupcakes. Unnecessary, but totally cool and exciting.

These are some pretty flowers I picked today whilst I was partying outside.

Pedro and I went for a bit of an adventure on Saturday night.

Sadly though, I don't think I'll be left home alone again for a very long time. My mum doesn't seem to like the fact that I loved being home alone. Seriously though, I LOVED it. I think I enjoy my own company too much.. Oh well.

Well, the unicorn must go back to reality now. Also, she needs to go to bed since she has work in the morning. *Very over dramatic, sad sigh* Why do all good things come to an end? No, I didn't just start singing that song by Nelly Furtado...

Lecy the unicorn has to leave now because she forgot what else she was going to blog about..

Adios to all my non-unicorn friends!
Even though I don't have any friends..
So I'm pretty much talking to myself. Well, that sounds about right.

Lecy x

Wow, I just kissed myself too.. My level of weird just keeps increasing.

Parents are abandoning me for the weekend, and all I got was ice cream.

Hey Chumps! I'm not sure if that's the word I'm looking for but that's the word I'll use. It sounds cool in my head so it's okay.

I'm sorry if my blogs have been rather dull lately, I haven't really done anything exciting to share with you all. Okay, I'm lying. I have, but I don't have time to blog about all the awesome stuff I do. Ain't nobody got time for that. *previous sentence said with a lot of black woman attitude,* Mmmhmm.

Since I have a bit of spare time tonight, I shall share with you what I did today. I only have spare time because I'm procrastinating. I can't remember what I'm procrastinating for, but I'm pretty sure I am meant to be doing something important..

Well anyway, I went to the beach. 

Where I found myself a pretty sweet fort. It had shell flooring and everything! I didn't build it, but I sure did claim it! I pretended I had some Maori blood and claimed the piece on beach that it was on.

Yeah, then I pretty much just took heaps of photos of the sunset and the stuff..

Oh for that one I felt really cool hiding behind the fence..

Aww and this is Bam Bam. He's so adorable. I didn't hang out with him today, this photo was taken on Tuesday.

I was about to go on a rant and start telling you all about what I learnt in history today but I thought I wouldn't cause you guys won't get as excited about it as I did.

Oh, funny story guys. I was just walking down the stairs with a nice hot cup of tea in one hand and the telephone in the other. Then I split my tea all down my legs. I was going to type, 'split the phone,' but I didn't spill the phone.. On the bright side I had warm legs.

Right, I have an announcement to make.
My parents are leaving me home alone this weekend.
This, is a big deal. They've never trusted me enough to leave me all alone allllll weekend. So I'm really excited. But I can't throw a huge party or something crazy cause I'm working.. Which kinda ruins it. But I'll still do lots of crazy stuff by myself.

It's going to be strange coming home from work to an empty house. No one to yell at me when I don't wash the dishes or make too much noise. It'll be grand! It will just be me, myself, and all the wonderfully loud music I'll be playing.
Lezbehonest though, we all know I'm probably going to freak out when it comes to night time.
Or I'll be too busy reading to notice.

The only down side it that I'll have to cook for myself.. Ugh, I'll most likely just live off toast.

I'm pretty sure I had some other funny things to tell you all, but I've forgotten. So I shan't tell you. Because I can't.

Any-who, I'm off to dwell in my imagination until reality comes in the morning and I have to go to work.

Goodnight champs.
You're all champs now cause you survived reading this whole blog.

Lecy is going to fly with her magical unicorn friends now!

Lecy x

P.s. My lovely mother just bough me ice cream for the weekend. I'm pretty sure it's cause she feels bad for abandoning me.

Wednesday, 21 August 2013

It's like I'm on a roller coaster, but I'm not even moving..

Baa baa black sheep, have you any wool? This is when you say no, now stop singing Lecy, you suck. 
Fine, I'll stop. But only cause I can't sing when I'm trying to hold back all my tears.

Anyway.. How have you all been recently? You don't have to answer, I was only being polite.

How have I been, did you say? I've been swell. Only because my passenger tickets arrived today though, other than that I've been pretty average really.

I made the stupid decision to stop vaulting for a while the other day. Hardest decision of my life. And now I'm at the stage where I'm really regretting it. But I need to have a break and sort my life out and regain my focus on God. I realized that I was idolizing my vaulting, so I needed to take a break. 
I'm cut in two with how I feel about stopping, half of me is saying that I'll be happy soon, while the other half is telling me that I'm an idiot for leaving. But I know that once I've got my priorities right I can go back. 
Ohhh, but since I still help a lot at the vaulting club I'll get to do some riding. So that'll be fun. But not nearly as much fun as vaulting..

Moving on..

Yay! I was so excited when it arrived early Monday morning, just before I went to work.
But then a terrible thing happened when I got home, I tried playing music on my headphones BUT IT STILL DIDN'T WORK. I was really mad. I paid fifty dollars and went around phoneless for a couple weeks AND THE STUPID PEOPLE DIDN'T EVEN FIX IT. Ugh. I'm still mad, in case you hadn't noticed. 
So now I have to send it back so they can fix it properly. At least I don't have to pay this time.

Do you guys know what I'm doing right now? That's correct, I am indeed procrastinating. But only because I really dislike maths a lot. So I'm not going to do it today. I'll just finish writing my essay on the difference between the law of God and His grace. That's way more beneficial than maths. Well I think it is.

Do you want to know what I did on the weekend? Of course you do, that's obviously why you're reading this.
Well, I was staying with my bestie, Abby, and we had a bit of a Hannah Montana marathon. It was amazing. We did some other stuff but that wasn't as cool.

Well, it's dinner time now folks so I better be going now.
It was good to catch up. Even though we only talked about me.. But you still enjoyed it.

You're welcome.

Lecy had to sleep with the light on.

I would like to start by telling you a short story about me. 

The other night I was reading this book I got out from the library. It was by an author that I know. I thought it was just a nice book, but no. It started talking about witches and stuff. It got really freaky and I got scared. Needless to say, I slept with my lamp on that night. That's the first time that's ever happened to me with a book. I normally don't get scared easily.. But it wasn't a good idea to be reading scary things in the early hours of the morning.
What did lecy learn from this? Always read the back cover carefully and make sure it doesn't mention the word, 'horror.' 
In the morning I woke up confused as to why the light was on. Then I remembered and laughed at myself. 

Anyway, you don't really care about how I get scared reading horror books.

So I'll tell you what's been happening for me this week.

Monday I did lots of studying. Then my lovely sister took me on a horse trek. It was nice.

Tuesday I had a horrible maths exam. Ew. Then I had vaulting so the end of the day was good.

Today is Wednesday. I woke up at 5:30 am for no reason. My body just decided 6 hours sleep was enough. It's regretting it now.
Today I have lots of Maths, English, History, Music and that kinda stuff to do. So I thought I should start the day off with some procrastinating. 

Also, I need to get back into making really cool stuff. I haven't done much of that recently..

I'm so happy I could almost do a happy dance. But too tired.. Seriously though, I'm so happy. The phone my friend lent to me just isn't the same.. It was good, but not the same..


I'm so excited. I'm taking Abby for her birthday present. It was going to be a secret.. But I can't keep things from her so I told her early.. Hehe.
I haven't actually bought the tickets yet, but I'll do that this afternoon.

Yeah, I don't really know what else to say.. 

I know what your all thinking, 'cool story lecy, you can stop now.'

Thank you for giving me your permission to stop now.

I'll leave since you don't want me anymore. *Sniffles*

*Runs away and hides in blanket fort*

(No 'xx' for you Muppets today.)

The great people who inspire this young one.

La la la la, la la la la Lecys world!
 If you think I'm a cool kid then you've come to the right place. If you don't think I'm a cool kid you've also come to the right place. You're opinion may change soon. Just warning you. 

Well, tonight I thought I'd let you all in on a secret. It's not really a secret. But I thought I'd let you in anyway. I'm going to tell you about all the people who have inspired me throughout my life (so far). Most of whom are Authors of cool books that you should all read. 

Let's start with C. S. Lewis. He's dead now. In fact, most of the people I'm going to write about are. But I grew up with my mother reading his Narnia series to me at bed time. Then when I was older I got to study them all and learn about how he subtly put Bible themes into them. Sometimes they weren't subtle, but still they were great books to study. I also think that since he was an Atheist when he was young makes his books all the more better since he had the experiences of an Atheist which meant he could write more clearly on certain topics. His favorite book that he wrote himself, "Till we have faces," is a really weird but good book. He writes in a pagan point of view to prove the pagan views wrong. It was a difficult book to study, but definitely worth it. 

Next is Martin Luther. Not Martin Luther king, but the real Martin Luther. To me, he's one of the coolest people ever. He went against the Roman Catholic church, which back in the day was pretty much the center of everything (government etc). Imagine doing something like that! He was so passionate about Gods true Word that he didn't care if almost everyone was against him. All that mattered to him was getting the truth to people and stopping the corrupt church. Enough on him. If I keep going I won't stop. Trust me, the other day I wrote an essay on him just cause I wanted to. I'm not even a nerd. 

J. R. R. Tolkien. Friends with C. S. Lewis. I must admit, I know very little about Tolkien. But I enjoy his books very much. If I do ever write books I'd want them to be as cool as Tolkiens. 

George McDonald. A man who inspired both C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien. Sadly, I haven't been able to find any of his books to read yet. But I've read some pretty cool quotes by him. He had some flaws, but everyone does. 

John Bunyan. Author of Pilgrims progress, possibly one of the greatest books I read as a child. 

Charles Spurgeon is also ridiculously cool. 

And the Apostle Paul. G. K. Chesterton, C. J. Mahaney, R. C. Sproul, and so many more. 

I've just realized that the only people I've written about are Authors. But they aren't the only people who have inspired me or had a big influence on my life. 

Vaulting has also had a big influence in my life. I've been vaulting for about 4 years now I think. And for the past 3 years it's been my dream to go to Germany and get really good and compete. My coaches and the people I train with inspire me. 

My brothers inspire me. I guess some of them are pretty cool.. My sister also inspires me. When I was little she was the coolest person ever. Then she got married and abandoned me with five older brothers. But she's still cool. 

My mum. I like her. She reads too much though. And it's a habit she's passed on to me. 
My dad is cool too. 

The coolest person ever though has to be Jesus. Without Him everyone would be damned.

I'm trying to think of people who inspire me that aren't Authors, but I can't think of anyone right now. So maybe I'll tell you who else inspires me when I think of them. 

I'm quite tired now so I'm going to stop now.

Goodnight Muppets!

Rambles and whatnot

I'm sorry I've been absent for two days. I know you must have missed me, so I apologize. But I do actually have a life. I know it may surprise some of you, believe me, it surprises me as well.

Hmm.. What shall I ramble about..

I'll start off by telling you about how mum my doesn't understand the greatness of snap chat. Whenever she sees me taking weird photos she tells me off. She claims it's vain. But I can't see how it's vain taking stupid photos of yourself and letting your friends see them for a couple of seconds. I think it's hilarious. 

Also, I went to the library today on a mission to find some books by George McDonald and to find the Iliad by Homer. But I was devastated to discover that they weren't there! So that was disappointing. But I guess the four books I'm reading at the moment will keep me going for a little while longer. 

Ugh, you know what else I did today? I cleaned my room. It was fine till I realized I should clean under my bed. That thought scared me since I'm pretty sure I haven't ever cleaned under it. Which meant I was going to find all my brothers old rotten socks. And spiders. I'm not sure what's worse, but I found both. I may have screamed when I saw all the spiders. I'm not saying I did, I'm just saying that there is a very high chance I did. Any-who, I did it and all was well after having a nap. Fine, I didn't actually have a nap, I just read. Which is just as good. 

Well, I was talking to the coolest person ever on the phone before and I kept saying all my words wrong. And I was like, "I keep making like typos, but with my speaking.." So I think I need to come up with a word for that.. 

Well, I have nothing else on my mind that I care to ramble about right now. So I'll do some more confessions. Cause, lezbehonest, you all what to know more about me.

1. I had a lot of things to blog about before, but now my mind has gone blank.

2. I love it when people randomly tell me that they like my blogs. 

3. I'm really insecure about my laugh. Everyone always tells me it's weird so I hate laughing in front of people I don't know. Unless I'm in a mood when I don't care what people think. Which is most of the time. 

4. I really miss my phone. 

5. If I could marry anyone, I would marry either Ben or Winston from Mumford and Sons. 

6. But I'm never getting married. Cause no guy would be able to handle me. I'm just too full on. And weird and all that stuff. Plus, no guy will ever meant my high expectations. Then if they do (which is very unlikely), they probably won't be able to handle all my brothers. But if they some how pass my brothers without running away, they'll never get past my sister-in-law Milly. 

7. Going from the facts in number 6, I'm forever alone. 

8. But that's what I want. Writing books is easier alone. So I will be alone. Forever. 

9. I really want to go to bed and read right now, but I know you all missed me so I will finish this blog. 

10. I know what I'm going to write my first book about. But I shan't tell you. Haha.

11. I'm always tired. So my mum thinks I'm lacking in iron or something. Now I have to have this weird tonic stuff with heaps of healthy stuff in twice a day.

12. I'm really, really excited for summer. 

13. I used to call my brother a tub of lard. My friend reminded me of this the other day when she randomly remembered it. 

14. I'm not 14 anymore. Even though I sometimes think I am..

15. I've already accepted the fact that I'm not going to pass my maths exam on Tuesday. 

16. I'm trying to teach myself how to play the song, "summer" by Vivaldi on the violin. It's hard. 

17. My best friend is almost 17. I'm taking her to the Passenger concert for her birthday present. 

18. I've made over 2,000 dollars this year. But I've spent all of it. I can't even remember what I've spent it all on. I COULD HAVE BOUGHT A CAR WITH ALL THAT MONEY! 

19. I'm finished. This is boring. 

20. What I really mean is, I haven't read for over half an hour. So I must leave before I die. 

21.I like calling you all Muppets. 

So farewell, Muppets!

How not to save money.

So, everyone is always telling you how you can save money, and giving you  helpful hints on it and whatnot. But, lets be honest, they never actually help.

So I thought, maybe I should write a little blog on how I don't save my money. (You know me, always going against the flow..) I only thought this because I don't want to tell you how to save money when I can't do it myself. I have to practice what I preach. Or preach what I practice.

I'm actually trying so hard to save up for a car. But it's just so difficult. I'll let you all in on my great secrets of how to not save any of your hard earned money.

1. Find a shoe shop that always has sales. Find shoes you love. Buy shoes, but only when on sale so you can brag about how they were such a great bargain.

2. Get a debit plus card. Or a visa. Either is fine.

3. Find a website that has ridiculously cheap things you love. Mine is ASOS. Ahh, it has such amazing make up for such a little price! And free shipping! Free shipping is the best type of shipping.

4. Fall in love with books. Buy books for yourself and all your friends so they do the same.

5. Bye a nice phone. It will then brake and you'll have to send it away to get fixed. Then the people fixing it will decide that since you've dropped the phone it can't be covered by the warranty. Yay.

6. Buy an animal Onesie. Once you've got one, you'll NEED more.

7. Have jeans. Rip jeans in very awkward places. Buy new jeans.

Well, this is your guide line on how to not save money. Whether or not you use it or do the opposite is up to you. I do not give you permission to blame me if you spend all your savings.

Now that all the serious business has been dealt with, let us see what I did on Wednesday.
I was going to do a 'wardrobe Wednesday,' but I was just too tired to do it yesterday. So I'll do it today. I shall call it, 'Procrastinators fashion day,' and you'll never know when it's coming because it's specially made for procrastinators like myself. I'll try to make a better name for it soon. Cause I can see it getting huge.

I didn't wear anything crazy cool. But most days simple is best.
The coolest thing about what I'm wearing is that my shirt was from the Op shop. I love Op shopping.

I got bored of taking nice photos.

I'm not sure why I keep putting the flowers in my mouth.. But it was entertaining.

Oh, and this beautiful photo captured my oh so attractive, 'the sun is in my eyeballs, but I shan't blink,' face.

It almost looks like I need to sneeze.

And this photo, was just nice. It made my shirt look rather snazzy.

Well Lecy is finished rambling.
Quickly though, I've decided what I'm going to do with my life.
I'm going to write books. I don't know what kind yet, but I would like to write books.

Yup, done now.

Peace out, Muppets.

I hide in blanket forts quite frequently

Ugh, so do any of you have those weeks where you just want to hide in a blanket fort with lots of books, chocolate and a coffee fountain? Well, I've been having one of those weeks. Not for any reasons in particular, I just really don't like growing up. I mean sure, some things about growing up are cool and stuff, but lets be honest, most of it sucks. Seriously, I get the weirdest looks from people when I'm wearing my unicorn onesie. I can feel them judging me for my childishness. But I know they're just jealous. 

So I came up with a solution for my problem of growing up; I just won't. I shall be like the girl version of Peter Pan. I'll make my own Never Never land. There shall be no lost boys in my land, just lost unicorns. That shall have mad battles with evil pirates that will eventually become good pirates and will polish the unicorns horns and feed them lots of carrots. I'll still get old, but I won't mature. And my magical land will just be my imagination. But what other choice do I have? None. Absolutely none. A part from possibly dying young.. But even if I do get old I'll still die young. (See the pun? Cause my last name is young.. ;) haha).

But according to my best friend, Abby, I sounded quite mature tonight when we were talking on the phone for the first time in forever. By forever I mean a whole week. I know, It's madness! I don't know how I survived a week without talking to my best friend. Anyway, she said I sounded "mature" cause I was talking about my feelings.. Pssssh I do that all the time. Okay, so maybe I don't.. But why would talking about my feelings make me sound more grown up? I just don't understand. 

I'm really not good at this whole, "growing up," thing. My dad likes to remind me of this fact often. Like tonight at dinner time he told me to grow up and finish my dinner. Cause I was telling mum how it wasn't fair that they always taught me to eat what I take, then when they serve dinner they give me far too much and expect me to eat it all. I tried saying that I didn't serve it to myself so I shouldn't finish it since I was full, but nope, I had to eat it all AND I had to grow up! I ate it, but I refuse to grow up. 

I'm really not sure where this ramble is going.. But it's almost 1 a.m! I should be sleeping, but my stupid mind is so awake. I'm so over tired that I no longer feel tired. It's the worst feeling ever. Ughh, especially since my body is aching with exhaustion but my mind is just like, "Nope, you're not tired. You're just lacking caffeine." Which is and isn't true. I am tired, but tiredness only comes from lack of caffeine.. So maybe my mind is right. Maybe I should just live on coffee and I'll never be tired. But then I'd die. I'd miss all my naps. 

I'm going to stop now. I'm not even sure why I wrote this.. It's weird. But that's what I am so all is well.

I'm going to read now to tire out my stupid, over productive mind.


Lecy x  

I don't know why I put an 'x' at the end of all my blogs.. I don't like hugs so I wouldn't hug any of you.. Maybe I'll stop. Yes, good plan Lecy, good plan.

Lecy rambles with seriousness this time

Those of you who are reading this and know me well, most likely know that I very rarely get serious. But I'm about to get serious.

Lately I've been learning about how faith without works is dead (James 2 : 26b). Of course we're not saved by our works. But I've learnt that if we are really Christians, good works will necessarily flow out from our faith. It's taken a while for me to actually realize this. "It is a flat impossibility to be born of the Spirit and have no change in ones's life." If we're Christians our lives should be changing. We cannot keep living how we did before we came to Christ. If we continue like that, we aren't actually Christians.  But if we have a true faith we will try to do what God wants not what our old sinful selves want. Sure, what God wants might be the harder choice, but think of the long run. Would it be better to have something easier now, and then be in eternal damnation? Or to have things difficult now and then be with God in Heaven for eternity?
We might be professing our faith, but we need to possess what we profess as well.

So since faith without works is dead, I'm trying to focus more on my devotion time with God. I must admit, it's not easy. But it's so good to spend time with our Heavenly Father and be filled with his Goodness and continually be reminded of what His Son did for us. I'm not trying to make myself sound really righteous and holy, trust me, I know I'm far from those. I'm a sinner, just like everyone else. But I also know that I've received forgiveness for my sins. And since I know this, I want to live my life for God. Not only will I profess my faith, I will also posses it.

Please read 1 peter 4.
I know from experience that it's really difficult to do good works when you're constantly being reviled for Christs' sake. But in 1 peter 4, He's promised that He will reveal His Glory to us. That's what we can look forward to when we're suffering for our good works. Matt 5:10-12 "Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for you reward is great in heaven."

I'm sorry if none of this made sense, but it made sense in my mind so I wanted to blog about it. Also, I'm sorry if it seemed like I was jumping from one thing to another..



Haha so true!! :P

Anyway, I'm finished now. I hope I didn't bore you to death with my little Bible rant.

Just so you can have a laugh, I thought I'd finish off with this.

There are actually things named after me. Strange.

So you know when you just have those really good ideas, at the strangest times? Well that happened to me tonight, I was washing my hair, not even thinking about blogging, then all of a sudden I thought I should write a blog on things named after me! So I've done some googling and this is what I've found.

The first thing I discovered was a website. I don't know what's on it, all I know it that it's named after me.

I couldn't help it, this one was just really funny! This is what Urban Dictionary says about me:

Also, there's a band named after me. But the music they make scares me so I won't post any..

There's another blogger out there called Elysia Young! Weird.. 
this is Madness!

I'm pretty sure when this movie was made the people who made it secretly knew about me and wanted to name the movie after me..

So Wikipedia thinks I'm pretty much heaven according to ancient Greek philosophy

There are some weird things named after me. But that's okay, I guess it explains why I'm quite weird.
I couldn't find any coffee named after me though. *Sad, over dramatic sigh.* I guess I'll have to make my own.

I do really like my name, but it was always so sad growing up and never getting those cool things with my name on. But then if I had a common name I probably would've got annoyed cause it was too clique.

Any-who, it's time for me to do my literature! I'm studying the Epic of Gilgamesh.

P.S. I tried doing a Vlog today.. But it wouldn't upload. Sorry.. But I'll try again when I get my phone back.

"A dead thing goes with the stream, but only the living thing can go against it." G.K.Chesterton 

"Trials are intended to make us think, to wean us from the world, to send us to the Bible, to drive us to our knees." J. C. Ryle.

Okay, I'm finished now. You may leave in peace.

A bit of this, and a pinch of that.

Guess what I did today?! Guess, guess, guess! Come on, keep trying, you're getting close! 
I was lying, you were so far from guessing what I did today. Knowing you, you probably didn't even guess. 
Since you all suck at this game I don't know if I should tell you.. 
But I will, cause I'm such a nice lady. (See what I did there? I think I'm a lady, but we all know I'm not..)
I drove the beast today. Okay, it's not really a beast, but it's humongous compared to the little car I usually drive.. Also, I learnt that driving an Auto is so much easier than a Manual! I even practiced staring with my knees (don't tell my mum). 

Then, cause I'm obviously my parents favorite child, they got me stuff so I could make iced coffees. After persuading them that it was better to do that than go to a cafe. Cause they wanted to take me out for coffee. Cause I'm their favorite.

It's beautiful, isn't it?

Om nom nom nom

Oh look! They got me pineapple lumps too!

Then I found pizza!

Naww, I'm so cute. I picked myself a flower..

But then all the coffee yumminess was GONE!
So then I had a nap to cheer myself up.

Oh, and in the morning I got some fabric. 
Then later in the afternoon, after a lot of procaffination, I finally made a skirt.
I made a top as well.. But yeah, that didn't end well..

This is my skirt.

It's a bit darker than it looks in these photos. But my old camera sucks. And I don't have a phone.

I feel like this post has been rather boring. So I'll tell you a funny story.
So today sometime, I was thinking about something (I don't remember what it was exactly) and then I thought to myself, 'why does everyone keep telling me to grow up? I'm only 14!' Then I realized I am, in fact, 16. So I'm sorry if I'm immature but it's obvious that I still think I'm 14. 

Haha, I bet you thought it was going to be me rapping! Sorry to disappoint. But you must admit it is a good song.

Who thinks I should do a vlog? I think it would be weird but Abby says I'd be really funny.. Personally I think I'd get camera shy and hide under the table. But if you want to see me vlog, let me know. I'll consider it. Depending on whether I like you or not. Kidding, I like you all. Well, most of you anyway, there are a couple of exceptions. 

Goodnight weirdos!
You're all weird now since you read my blog.
Once you're weird there's no going back.

I really should nap less..

It's exactly 11 p.m. I'm wide awake. Why? Cause I was reading in bed before and I fell asleep. Now I feel like going nuts, but my parents are sleeping so I have to do it via blog.

I could be doing fun things right now, like actually hanging out with my friends. (I do have friends, even though I make it seem like I don't..) But nope. Some stuff happened so my parents were like, 'no no no, no friends over tonight.' So now I don't have anything to do. I would be playing on my phone, cause the other day I got this really exciting unicorn game, BUT I DON'T HAVE MY DUMB PHONE. Ugh, I didn't know how attached I was to that thing till I didn't have it. Today I kept thinking my phone was vibrating in my pocket, but it was just my imagination mocking me.. :(

I think it's safe for me to say that I have no life. All I do is sleep, eat, vault, read, nap, blog, eat, nap and drink coffee. Which is cool, I like it. That's not everything I do with my life, but it's the things I enjoy. Did I mention that I also really enjoy studying history? I do. In fact, I was doing that today. I was reading about the reformation and renaissance in Europe and I was getting really excited cause I'd get to read more about Martin Luther. But then, the worst thing that could possibly happen, happened. The stupid book didn't say a single thing about Martin Luther. So I protested. Now I have a new history book that does talk about Martin Luther. All is well now.
Also, while I was looking for the history book I found this really interesting Literature book. I got so excited. Now I'm studying two books on literature. If you hadn't noticed I love learning about old literature and history. I'm secretly a nerd. But no one knows it cause I don't let it show through my unicornness much. You should feel privileged that you've been let in on the secret.

Moving on from my secret identity..

I was looking through some old photos the other day, by old I mean a couple years back, and I found one of me just after I'd gotten a strike at bowling.

It was really exciting because I suck at bowling. 

Then I found this photo of when I dressed up as a sheep. I had rainbow legs cause black and white is too plain for me.

I'm going to stop this trip through memory lane now before I start posting really embarrassing photos. Even though I wouldn't even get embarrassed. It would be all you getting embarrassed of how cool I am. 

Yeah, so I'm gonna go read about history and stuff now. 
I know you're all jealous of my secret nerdness. If I were you I would be too.

Stop talking lecy, no one thinks you're funny.
I just politely told myself to shut up.
cause I never know how to finish my blogs.. It's quite awkward.
I feel like I need to say something really funny so you all come read them again but I can never think of anything.

*Runs away to hide in the corner*

Procaffination time is the best time.

I no longer procrastinate. I procaffinate. It's the same thing but with coffee. It's what I'm doing right now.. Well kinda, I have things I should be doing but I'm waiting for my mummy to get home so she can tell me what I need to do for my maths exam coming up.

So while I procaffinate I'll tell you about how amazing my new foundation is. Firstly, it smells incredible! I have it on now and every time I breath I smell it and it's soooo good. Second, it only cost $12! Flip, cheapest foundation EVER. Third, it works well. I feel so much prettier now. Most likely cause I constantly smell good.

You know what I thought this morning? No, of course you don't, I haven't told you yet. But if you stop interrupting me I'll tell you. Good, now you're quiet I'll tell you. Well, as I was listening to Passenger and Mumford & Sons I realized that I actually love British accents. I've always known this, but I never really knew how much. If you think about it, a large number of my fav bands / singers have British accents. Okay, so not actually that many.. But still. I wish I had a cool accent. But no, I'm just a kiwi that mumbles everything. Maybe, if I go live in England or something for ages I'll get an accent. I'll do anything to sound as cool as Mumford & Sons.

Just listen to the amazingness.

I'd start posting Mumford & Sons songs but if I did that I'd never be able to stop.

So now when people start asking me what I want to be when I grow up I'm going to tell them that I wish to be British. Or possibly a Banjo player. Cause letzbehonest, Banjo players are the coolest people ever.

I mean, look at this guy. You can tell he's a banjo player since he just looks so flippin awesome. 

If I was a guy I'd so want to be like him when I grow up.. But just the Christian version. 
But as all my friends keep reminding me, I'm a girl. They always have to remind me cause I keep asking them if I should try growing a moustache.. So when I have a moustache it'll be when I don't have friends. 
Thinking about that, I don't have friends. SO WHY DON'T I HAVE A MOUSTACHE YET?! 
Oh, that's right, I'm still a girl. Even when I don't have friends. 

Well guys, my coffee is gone so this procaffination blog is over.
"Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened." 
But mainly just smile cause Dr. Seuss told you to and he was almost cool enough to be British. But obviously not quite since he's wasn't..

Before I leave, quick question for everyone who actually reads my blogs. Do you have anything you want me to blog about? If you do, let me know and I'll see what I can do. And by 'see what I can do,' I mean I might think about it but then again, I might not. 

Procaffination time: over.

Lecy is going to do school work! Yay!

Owly cuteness, a confession, & bed time.

*Hides face* Peek-a-boo! I see you! So you can't leave now. Or I'll be sad. 

So this morning, I had a really good idea for my blog tonight.. But as the day went on, I slowly forgot. Sorry about that. It'll come back to me though, so don't worry too much. 

But I couldn't not write a blog! I mean come on, I'm on a roll! So I can't stop now. So I guess I'll just ramble like I always do. 

Oh my goodness. I got the cutest owl hat today! It's just too cute! I'd post a photo, but ya know, no phone and what not. So you'll just have to imagine this cute face: 

In an owl hat. ;)

I'm going to apologize now for any spelling mistakes or anything. It's been a long day. Flip, at vaulting tonight we went for a run that we haven't done in ages so now I'm dead. Literally. I'm already in bed and it's what, 8 o'clock. That's how dead I am. And do any of you even know how painful it is for a girl like me, to run without a sports bra? It's horrid. 

Okay, I think you all know me well enough for me to confess something that's been on my chest for a while now.. I HATE boobs. And I mean, I like really really dislike them SO MUCH. Ugh. worst things ever. 
Hahaha and did you catch my pun up there? Been on my chest a while.. It made me giggle a bit. 


Do you know how hard it is living without my phone? It's so weird. If I want to talk to people I actually have to talk to them. I can't just text them.. Plus I never know what the time is. So I'm pretty much just hoping I'm getting everywhere on time. 

Well, it's almost 8:30 so I can fall asleep soon. Yay! 
Sleep is my fav. 
Goodnight goofy goobers.

Things bothering my mind, causing havoc while I try to sleep.

Second blog today! This is madness, I went from barely ever posting to posting up a storm! I don't even know why!

Anyway, that's not what I want to write about right now. I should be sleeping, but as you can see, I'm not. Unless I'm blogging in my sleep, although I doubt that.

The reason why I'm not sleeping is because I just have too much on my mind. It's been one of those days, well weeks actually, were everything just seems to go wrong. I haven't been able to concentrate on my school work, so I'm already behind even though the term just started. I've been doing terribly with my violin practice recently. There are some family issues that are really troubling me at the moment. And I just can't stop thinking about the past and how one of my closest friends has become so distant from me. Growing up is just scaring me. Everyone keeps asking me what I'm going to do when I finish school and I'm absolutely clueless. I don't even know if I'll pass my exams! I won't if I keep being so slack with my studies.

But it's times like these, when everything is just bringing me down, looking like things will never work out, I need to remember who I am. I am a child of God. I am very precious in His sight. He's got everything under control and I just need to trust Him. Romans 8:28, "we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose." God knows what He's doing with my life. I may not be able to see the good yet, I might not see it for a while, but I know that it will come if I continue to love God.

Some Bible verses I've been saying to myself quite frequently these past weeks are;
Psalms 61:2, "When my heart is overwhelmed, lead me to the Rock that is higher than I."
Psalms 73:21-26, "Thus my heart was grieved, and I was vexed in my mind. I was so foolish and ignorant; I was like a beast before You. Nevertheless I am continually with You; You hold me by my right hand. And afterward receive me to glory. Whom have I in Heaven but You? And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You. My flesh and my heart fail; but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever."
John 16:33, "I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world."
I won't share them all, but that's just a couple that have been helping me.

Also, while I was writing this Tenth Avenue North started playing. Then, this.

I know that I fail my Saviour everyday, but He always forgives me. This doesn't mean I've got a free card to just sin whenever I want, it means I'm trying to be better, I'm trying to stop acting on my feelings but however hard I try I will still fail. But He's helping me everyday to become more and more 
like Jesus.

Who Do You Think You Are?

"Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny." C. S. Lewis.


This is Beautiful! Absolute Truth! <3

I think that's enough rambling from me now. If I don't stop now I never will. 
 Goodnight to all the crazy people who bothered to read this.
Unicorn love to you all.
