Lecy learnt three things today

'You learn something new everyday.' Well then, today must have been a triple day. Or maybe I'm just smarter than the average person.. 
Right, getting to the point.. I learnt three things today. 

The word 'Amuse' pretty much means, 'No muse,' which means no thinking.. Kinda. My brother worded it better, but it was 5 am so I don't remember it perfectly. But isn't it interesting that we're always 'amusing' ourselves? In other words, never thinking deeply about something. Just doing the norm. 
Interesting thought there..

I'm awkward when it comes to vlogging.

I passed my English exam. Plus, my high score was in the top 35% out of all of NZ and the pacific.. I don't really care about that. But I did like the fact that almost all my answers were above the average school kids. That's right, I'm kinda smart.
But lets wait and see what I get for my maths exam.. 

Anyway, this is just a little blog since I did a vlog for you all. I'm sorry it's weird, but I really had no idea what I was doing.. But I thought it was slightly funny so I'm sharing it with you.

I'm sorry I sound really manly.. I have a really sore throat. I don't normally sound that manly.
Just sayin'

I hope you liked my vlog! I'm probably going to regret making soon..

Confession time; the two people I would consider marrying.

I'm not sure how many of you are already aware of this, but I'm a bit of nerd. For those of you who know me, I know what you're thinking, 'A bit of a nerd?!' Okay, so maybe I'm a huge nerd. But that's just apart of me that we all love.

Anyway, the reason I'm confessing that I am ridiculously nerdy, is because I have a story to share. Stories are always better when you know a bit of back ground information, so I needed to inform you all that I'm a nerd in order for you to fully understand this particular story.

Any-who, I went to the library twice last week. We all know that when Lecy goes to the library, she means business. So all together I got seven, not little, but all rather massive, books. I was perfectly confident that I would be able to finish reading my seven books within three weeks. I mean, come on, I love reading! Three weeks is plenty. All was well till I had a panic attack last night. I realized I didn't actually have three weeks. I only have one and a half, due to the fact that I'm going away. How am I ever going to manage to finish them all now?! I shan't. So now I'm sad. But I shall march on, I'm a survivor. It won't be the end of the world.

Now that I'm on the topic of confessions I shall continue you to confess things you may, or may not know.

Recently I've been studying a bit of philosophy. It hurts my head, and a nap is always needed to make it better. But today I didn't nap, perhaps I'm becoming a bit of a philosopher myself.. Hmm.. 

I got sunburnt yesterday. Turns out it wasn't a good idea to study outside all day.. But sunburn is better than sunscreen.

Last night a friend of mine asked me, "how to be less lovey dovey.' I'm now training her in my wise ways. 
I'm kidding, my ways aren't that wise (I am training her though).. Well, in some things they are, but in others not some much.. It really shouldn't be so hard for me to open up to people. But as soon as I do open up to someone I always end up getting hurt, so what's the point?

I came to the conclusion the other day that I should be more open to the idea of marriage. 'Cause I've noticed (and been told frequently) that the people who are so unwilling to get married, always do. And those who wish to get married never do. So I made a plan in my head. I'll pretend like I could possibly get married, that way I never will. It's brilliant. I'm quite the genius when I want to be.

I think confession time is over. I really don't know what else to say..
So I'll just post pictures, I'm good at that game.

I just want to write beautiful things, even if nobody cares to read them 

Mumford & Sons<3
I just thought I'd remind you all of how much I love Mumford and Sons.
If I ever met Ben or Winston, I would most likely marry them. (only one of them..)
In case you don't understand, Ben is the accordion player, and Winston is the banjo player. Marcus, the singer, is married so I can't marry him. I'm not sure whether or not Ted, the double bass player, is married.
So I'd have to marry Ben or Winston.
If I had to get married, those would be my two options.
Maybe I'm weird, but no one, and I mean no one, is nearly as cool as those guys.

Okay, I really need to finish my English and Maths. Philosophy took too long today so I haven't done anything else yet.. I'm so slack.

Bye bye, boogers! 
(You really should wipe your nose before you come next time, I don't appreciate it.)

10 reasons why I can't get married.

My dear little boogers, I'm awfully sorry, I had something really important to blog about this afternoon.. But I forgot.. How convenient! Now I'll just have to ramble. I know you all enjoy my nonsense.

So, after church this morning I was talking to my cool sister-in-law, Milly, and she was telling me not to be scared of getting married and stuff. But I'm not scared of marriage, it just isn't something that I desire like some people. If God wants me to get married, I'll have to get married. But I'm hoping (and praying) that I don't have to get married. Because I just can't see myself as a house wife.. Yesterday Abby told me I'd make a good little house wife since I love baking and stuff, I just laughed.

Anyway, I thought I should make a list of reasons why I don't want to / can't get married.
Plus, if I can think of any, I'll make a list of why I would get married (that would be difficult for me though).

Reasons to not get married:

1. Guys are dumb.
If you're a guy, please don't be offended. But I grew up with five older brothers, so I think I've lived with enough guys to last a lifetime.

2. I have issues with expressing my love. A guy just wouldn't be able to handle my lack of love, so I'd be nice and just not love him. It's the best for both of us.

3. Everyone marries their best friend, right? Well that's impossible for me since mine is a girl. And no one will ever replace her. So I think guys would get jealous that I'd spend more time with her, etc.

4. Kissing is gross.

5. I just don't want to, do I need more reasons? 

6. Marriage would ultimately result in kids. I don't want kinds.

7. Someone once told me that they think I'll be married by the time I'm 22, so I've accepted the challenge to not be married.

8. I wouldn't have enough time for reading if I was married. So obviously I can't marry, since reading is way more worth while.

9. As stated previously, in #1, I have five brothers. All of whom (well most of them) are rather protective. I can't even have a guy friend without them questioning me on who he is. Plus, no guy would ever be able to pass the tests they have to see whether or not they're good enough for me.

10. No guys would marry me. Well, that's what I tell myself anyway. Because then I have no choice.

I'll stop now, but I could keep going.

Let us move on to the next list.
Reasons why I should get married:

1. I shouldn't.

Well, that's a short list.. Possibly because I shouldn't get married.

Now that I've finished that task, would you like to know more random facts about me? I really don't know what else to write about..

When I'm tired I go switch between two extremes, depending on how tired I am, I'm either really social, or beyond anti-social. Most of the time it's the latter, but sometimes I just won't shut up when I'm tired. It's quite entertaining, I talk to myself when I'm in those moods, since my parents don't appreciate my non-stop chattering.

I enjoy playing with play dough. But seriously, who doesn't?! 

I WANT TO GO TO UNIVERSITY AND STUDY GREEK AND LATIN CLASSICAL STUDIES! AND I'M REALLY EXCITED!!!!!! But I have to wait like, three years since I want to go to Bible college first. Which is also very exciting.
My life  
Anyway little boogers, it's bed time! When I refer to bed time I usually mean it's time for me to give up on life for the night and read books instead.
So that's what I shall do now.

See you all next time! (I'm kidding, half of you won't have even got this far).

So Friday isn't Monday?!

To begin this blog, I'm going to tell you what I did yesterday. It was pretty hilarious, and I actually can not believe that I did it.
So, you know when you wake up and you're just so tired because you didn't have a great sleep or something? And you think it's a certain day, but then soon realize that it is in fact, a different day? Well, the first and second things happened to me. I woke up and, I have no idea why, I thought it was Monday. I didn't figure out that it was Friday till later. Anyway, I went to work and everything, still thinking it was Monday the 13th. So when I went to sign in for the day, I thought the person who worked the previous day was ridiculous! They had put down Thurs the 12th. It still did not occur to me that it was Friday. So I put in Monday, but not the date, cause by that time I was frazzled. Long story short, I realized a while later that it was Friday, laughed at myself, and then one of the work supervisors came and informed me that I got the day wrong. 

Then, at about 9 p.m. I decided that it was the perfect time to do what was probably the best workout of my life. I skipped for 20 minutes with no stops (excluding the times I tripped myself up for a second), held plank for 3 minutes something and then did lots of squats, push ups, ab stuff etc.

So yesterday was a good day, but then today was also a very good day.
I made caramel brownie. Flip, it's incredible! 

After I had done all my Saturday cleaning I went for a lovely bike ride to the beach to do a Bible reading. I love doing Bible readings at the beach, it's just so nice and calming.

After that though, it was time for a trip to the library! I got out three random books.

Want to know what else I did today? I BUILT A FORT! I know, it is pretty sweet. 
After dinner, and once Alastair and Alisha had gone, I ran down the stairs yelling, "I'M GOING TO BUILD A FORT AND YOU'RE NOT INVITED!" I'm not sure who I was yelling at, but whoever they were, they weren't invited.

Just chillin' in my fort. I'm pretty sure this is a #YOLO moment, don't you think?
Nothing beats a wicked sweet fort.

Oh, guess what I got today? That's right! A new Victoria's secret spray. It smells A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. Thanks Lish! Haha, I love that she is an air hostess so she gets discounts on duty free stuff. Also, she's really cool. 

Okay, it is time to get serious. I've had some things on my mind today, and I need to let it all explode in the form of blog.

Today I've been thinking about how so many people are insecure and all that stuff. And how everyone is always trying to impress others. Why? I don't know. But it's silly. People do things to themselves to get others to like them, but what's the point if you can't even like yourself? It's strange, it seems like everyone lives to please others, when really the only person we need to please is God.
I know that I might be sounding like a hypocrite, since I've done things just to impress people. But everyone is insecure at some point. 
But, I'm no longer living to please people. I'm living to please God, and I'm going to be the person He wants me to be, and who I want to be. I will no longer be different around different people because I'm worried about what they'll think of me. If they can't handle me, tough. I'm learning to love myself. Not in a vain way, but in a way that I am who God wants me to be. I know I'm not perfect, but neither are you. So when people judge me for wearing make-up, or for when I don't, I'll just remember that I'm not living for them. If I want to wear make-up, I'm gonna wear it, however the flip I want. And if I'm too lazy for make-up, I don't care. God thinks I'm beautiful with, or without. So stop living to please others. I'm not saying you don't need to care about other people, you still need to respect them and if they don't like something you do, just don't do it around them. But don't go changing yourself so they'll accept you, because they wouldn't be accepting you, they'd be accepting a shell of who you really are. Live your life to please God. If you're living to please Him, the world isn't going to accept you anyway. As Christians, we will be persecuted for loving God, but that won't stop us.

I'm not going to apologize for that long ramble, but I will apologize if I came across as vain, or conceited, I was not trying to be. But I am who I am, and I love me. What's the point in disliking yourself? You'll never be happy if you can't live with yourself.

So cheer up, buttercup. Pick up your tiara, wipe your tears and be who God has made you to be. You are the daughter of the most High King. 

I am who I am, flaws and all. I'm so far from perfect, but I'm saved by Amazing Grace.
Don't be embarrassed about yourself. EMBRACE YOUR UNIQUENESS! No one can do what you do, how you do.

I'm off to think of more things to share with you next time.

Goodnight, little boogers. (It's like bloggers, but cooler.)

Wardrobe Wed-nes-day.

So, it's Wed-nes-day, I thought I should try and do a wardrobe Wednesday on Wednesday for once. So I have. I didn't wear the grandest clothes today, just comfy, stay at home and study all day, kinda clothes. Those are my favorite.

I wore this bad-ass Cardigan. It cost me a ridiculous 25 cents! I know, how could something this cool, be that cheap?! It's bazaar. 

And I wore some black skinnies, but no one cares about them. But you do care about my cute as monkey socks. I know, they're totes adorable. 

Enough about my snazzy socks though, let's get on to business.

Have I mentioned that I went to Christchurch for the weekend? Well, I went to Christchurch for the weekend. For my cousins twenty first. I had a blast. There was a bouncy castle and everything.
Also, it was nice seeing all my cool cousins again.

This though, was the pretty view I got on my flight down south.

I stayed with my sister-in-law-to-be on the Friday night. 'Twas excellent. We made cupcakes and stuffs..

This is a couple of my cousins and I on the previously mentioned bouncy castle. Sorry the photos are blurry, but what do you expect on a bouncy castle? 

I know we're weird. But that's how we roll. 

Lecy doesn't learn from her mistakes. She makes the same mistake, over, and over, and over again.
I cut my fringe again. Last week, I liked it. Now, it's annoying. I've done this about three times now, yet I still haven't learnt that I don't enjoy the full fringe. Although, this time I did it more accidentally than willingly..I'm not going to share the story with you. I will leave you in suspense for the rest of your lives. Or till I feel like sharing.

*Subject change*
I recently made a kindle account.. So the other day I went crazy and got over 20 books all at once. I felt like such a nerd. I loved it. I have yet to finish reading all the books, but I'm making progress. So far I've read about 2 and a half. Along with all my real books that aren't on my phone. I mainly got books by Martin Luther, George MacDonald, John Bunyan and Charles Spurgeon.
Have any of you read, 'The Princess and the goblins,' by George M? If you haven't, I recommend you do. It's amazing. I haven't even finished reading it, but I already love it. Just the way he writes it is amazing. I honestly prefer old books to new ones. The way of writing was just so much more capturing and enjoyable. Well, that's what I think anyway. When I write books I want them to be as great as George MacDonalds. 

Lecy is going to study Philosophy now.
I'll see you cool kids later.
