“Love is not a maybe thing. You know when you love someone”

31 Mar

I posted this blog on Bebo a while back but now I’ve got an actual blog I’ve decided to post here… It’s not the same i’ve updated and spruced it up a bit… but the message “is what it is”

So…. Lauren Conrad

She’s Always Right!

lauren-conrad

She just comes out with brutally blunt honesty, and profound poetic statements simple enough to appear completely genuine.

After hearing that Heidi, along with her boyfriend Spencer were behind the sex tape rumors surrounding her and Jason Lauren screamed out against Heidi in a rage that had gone unseen throughout the time we’d “known” Lauren.

Two seasons of The Hills and another two seasons of Laguna Beach….

“YOU KNOW WHAT YOU DID!!!!” fb10

in a television moment that will never be forgotten!!

Something which sums up her brilliance is that one conversation with Heidi….

Blunt honesty:

“You’re lying to me.”

Simple words, complex phrases:

“Don’t look at me and tell me that you don’t know, because you know.”

Confusing, yet deep and thoughtful philosophies:

“I think you know that Spencer did this and I think you don’t want to believe it because you love him and I understand that. Because sometimes, when you love someone, you want to believe they’re good.”

Things that make ya think?:

“Heidi, sometimes whether you did something or did nothing, it’s just as bad.”

Questions that cannot be answered:

“How can you hate someone so much that you literally want to make them wish they were dead?”

Second best line of the season:

“The only thing really that there is to do is to forgive and forget. So I really do, I want to forgive you…. And I want to forget you.”

Lauren Conrad. She’s trusted so many people and it’s been a journey of ups and downs but she’s never wrong…

She’s even sooo forgiving in recent encounters with heidi, and previews of what the future looks like?? Saint Lauren!

Recent profound statements

“it is what it is”

re: her and Heidi’s relationship

She’s been on an emotional rollercoaster… not mentioning the crazy drama Audrina decided to lay on her last season, that girl needs to get a brain transplant, LC hated Justin Bobby, why would she EVER go there….

She’s so Smart, she’s got a profound understanding of life. She get’s what’s going on Waaaaay more than anyone else in the show.. in a word GENIUS…

Her and Brody have stuck by each other through thick and thin

MTV Hills Finale Party

I just CANNOT wait to see what the next season holds….

The preview Looks exciting!!!

“after everything that’s gone down the two people that they burned are the only two people that they have to call….”

It looks epic… and i know my love for the hills is strange. We can’t help what we like! I’ll probly lose the one fan i have (Catherine) by posting this and admitting to my love for the hills….

But it’s fun…

Can’t wait to see what happens in LC’s final season?? Not the final season of her life but the final season where we’ll be entertained by the dramas in her life. After this it’s pure celebrity gossip which is seriously just not as fun…

Memories Made In The Coldest Winter, Goodbye My Friend! Will I Ever Love Again…

Kanye West…Funny Guy…

2yvjno7

It’s funny how things happen, I never liked Kanye west, kinda liked his music (the popular stuff) never liked him, he seemed like an absolute tool… Even now! hearing some of the stuff he comes out with makes me just stare blankly in disbelief… My personal favourite being the “I want less fans” fiasco… Somebody who says that doesn’t deserve the Millions fans he has…

Anyway It all started with Love Lockdown, It was like nothing I had ever heard before… I fell in love with the song… It was fresh, new, innovative. I thought, “One off” It wouldn’t be the start of a trend like…

So then i was on a chart music buzz and the day Kanye’s New Album was released i decided sure why not €9.99, iTunes, Bargain…

So came  808’S & HEARTBREAK

I Listened and was hooked, It was like a completely different person a new artist I’d just discovered, breaking the boundaries of music, blurring the Lines…

I found myself at one point last November thinking, only Kanye understands me….

I was Just listening to the album today on my way home and realising that’s some seriously good music… Every Song on the album is Brilliant (I love those albums). There’s something about the Lyrics that make me feel like I’m looking into Kanye’s actual soul at some points (a little melodramatic i know)

At some points in the album it’s like he’s actually going INSANE

e.g. Robocop…

“Oh you kidding me,
You must be joking,
Or you are smoking
Oh, oh, you kidding me,
Oh you kidding me, ha ha, that was a good one,
Your first good one in a while
Your first good on in a while
You need to stop it now,
You need to stop it now,
Ooh you need to stop it now

I identify with the album even more now in my current state of heartbreak, but i just wanted to share with you the Amazingness! of this album and the beginning of my opinion turnaround of K-West…(It’s not over not over not over not over yet)

This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

I’m Currently…

My Top 5 Things About London

30 Mar

5. The Buzz.

Everywhere you go there are people, a ridiculous amount of people busily going about their daily lives. There’s just an atmosphere i don’t know what it is. London has this magical quality that you just don’t feel in Ireland. Don’t get me wrong I love my country very much but London is like a great escape into a different world that’s really close to home… It’s a nice place to escape to…

Oh and everyone has an iPhone!! I NEED One!!!

It's Amazing

It's Amazing

4. Phone Boxes.

They’re part of the scenery, London without Phone Boxes just wouldn’t be London at all…

Also an interesting fact is  That BT has adapted payphones for text, email and internet and offers communities the chance to hang on to their local phone by ‘adopting’ or ‘sponsoring’ the kiosk.

So perhaps here in Ireland Eircom were a little too quick off the mark when they decided to remove over 2,000 phone boxes around the country phone boxes without exploring the potential they have to offer. Deputy Ring pointed to the UK where

They described payphones as obsolete technology. That’s Not what BT have to say… They were fairly short-sighted.

Payphones are a fairly useful resource for tourists and the last thing we should be doing is removing services which visitors to our country rely upon.

Fine Gael’s    ” ‘Think outside the phone box’ appeal ” Believe Eircom were fairly foolish…

3. The Price.

Right know the exchange rate is Brilliant!!

1 Euro = 0.927683616 British pounds-ish

And yet there are things like this lovely Hoodie I got in river island London for £30 which over here is Like €55

It should cost approximately €33 here…. so going to London you actually get your moneys worth….

2. The West End.

The amazing “Theatreland” that is London’s west end… So far I’ve not been to london without attending a show… Musicals are my life… My life should be a musical etc…

In this particular trip to London i went to see ‘Joseph and his amazing technicolor Dreamcoat’

joseph_poster

Gareth Gates played Joseph it was really good, my favourite character is the narrator and she was played by the understudy the day i went to see it which i decided to myself was much better than the real thing you feel like they’re putting their all in because this is their chance To Shine!!!

How I Love my coat of many colours…

Gareth was runner-up in the first ever Pop Idol in 2002.  He has since had four number one singles and sold 3.5 million records to date.He was then subsequently forgotten by all but a few (Orla Hearne ) and he faded to grey.  Earlier this year, Gareth appeared in ITV1’s Dancing on Ice. Coming back as the star of Joseph has kinda shot him from Grey to Technicolour overnight…

The funniest thing in my entire experience of the show however was how he credited himself in the programme for having taken part in a documentary called “whatever happened to Gareth Gates?” Is that not in any way embarrassing???

I really like him though…

overcoming his stammer stammer and all….

He’s endearing…

I Loved This Song…

1. The Tube.

150px-undergroundsvg

The London Underground! THE most amazing transport system I’ve ever experienced… It just Works!

600px-london_underground_embankment_1090744_1090752

You can get on anywhere AT ALL and just make it to your destination no matter what, a couple of connecting trains and Bam! you’re there… no hassle at all.. you’re never really left waiting Long for a train… it’s so fast, you don’t even realise you’re twisting and turning or how deep underground you are… It is the THE thing that makes London so amazing. It’s a Pioneer In transport systems… The longest metro system in the world apparently.

And it’s relatively cheap it was like £5.40 for a day ticket (off peak which meant we just couldn’t travel before 9am, but your on your holidays why would ya) for zones 1 and 2 which is the major part of London…

Somewhere Only We Know!

Hello and welcome to my Blog….

Ok, I’m new to this whole thing. In the past, I’ve tried (and failed) many times to blog or do anything of this sort, but I guess the idea of people who’ve never met you getting to read your inner-most random thoughts and things you have to say appeals to me in a big way. I just think I can say what i want, my random musings may interest you… I cannot however, guarantee this.

Just give me a chance…

I’m a 19 year-old-student in Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, which is irrelevant to this blog as it will more than likely never feature as a topic of discussion. Also I’ve only told one person about this blog so it’s kind of a secret. Don’t know how that’s gonna get me any readers…

http://chicknamedhermia.wordpress.com/<&#8212; This girl is kinda the reason for my most recent attempt at blogging, I’ve been reading her blog and it has reminded me of my interest in blogging. Her blog seems so accessible. She has unknowingly re-ignited a passion for this sort of thing in me. She has a BA in Journalism which would be a significant advantage over me Since I’ve studied nothing in any way English or Journalism related (please excuse my grammar).

Read her stuff anyway, it’s GREAT!

Anyway, I’m just trying this out as i believe I’d enjoy it…. I’ll do my best to have regular updates, if you’re in any way interested?

My trivial existance could prove interesting, ya never know…

All i know is that I’m obsessed with fame….

Like Gaga… but that’s a separate issue…

I’ll leave you with this performance, she plays the piano with HER FOOT??

Amazing!
