Nose Bleed Attack

Following on from Bobbie's post, I thought I would talk about the massive nosebleed she recently had, (it follows on from the post because she had it just after dancing.)

When Bobbie has a nosebleed, she has a nosebleed. By this I mean, its not just a pathetic little trickle of blood, oh no, its the Niagara Falls of nosebleeds! So by the time she got back to her house, her hands were covered in blood. Lovely. But I have to say, the first time I was with her when she had a nosebleed was the worst because    we had to run into the Co-op and ask for tissues. Or, I did at any rate. And everybody just stood there looking at us, like yeah whatever, she could be dying for all we care.

So for all you nose bleed sufferers out there, I thought I would post some interesting information about nosebleeds... 

  • There are two types of nosebleed, anterior and posterior 
  • Anterior nosebleeds can be caused by colds or the flu, blowing your nose too hard, hay fever, a dry nose, sinusitis, injury to the nose, and good old fashion nose picking 
  • Posterior nosebleeds can be caused by nasal surgery, high blood pressure, nasal tumours, some kinds of medicines like aspirins  
So how do you stop a nosebleed when it starts? Here are a few suggestions 

  • Pinch your nose shut just above the nostrils 
  • Don't lie down... I'm not sure why you would anyway because then the blood starts going down the back of your throat! Cheery stuff! 
  • Put ice on the bridge of your nose, or frozen peas - the family preference 
  • Whatever you do, don't blow your nose!

Heyy again.

As everyone has probably guessed from the title ^ this post is about dancing. I myself am a massive fan of dancing, I dance pretty much all the time and would like to go to dance college in two years time when I have completed school.

There are all sorts of dance, for everyone out there including;

Hip - Hop

and ssso much more!

Recently the intrest in dancing has risen and dance groups and classes have popped up all over the country and... well... the world!

Also various shows like 'So You Think You Can Dance?', 'Got to Dance' and the American version 'Live to Dance,' have given talented dancers oppurtunities to be noticed so far they have produced great performances such as: (the music isnt quite in sync in this video but in the actual TV show they were in perfect time, sorry I cant find a better video! This is from 'Got to Dance') (this performance is from the American version of 'So You Think You Can Dance')

Have a look on youtube and you will find so many more inspirational performances!

Ciao, Bobbie xxx

Looking At Other Blogs I Realise...

This blog really has a lot more work to be put into it. Compared to some longer established blogs, this blog is quite mediocre and...well I want to improve it, but I'm not sure how. Yes readers, this blogger doesn't know how to meddle with her blog background, or a lot of things, because to be honest I am not one of those 24 hour blogger types and I am not exactly a computer genius. Not saying I'm a technophobe though, I mean what teenager now a days from the western world doesn't know how to work a computer? 

What I think I'm trying to say folks is that this blog is down for big changes, I want to make it more visually punchy, more interesting and if any of you readers have any tips I would be happy to hear them! Thing is though, don't wait up for any changes to the blogs appearance because it's going to take some time for me to deliberate these things. But hey, it's a new challenge to take up and I love challenges (mainly because I am too competitive for my own good!)

So over and out for now, expect changes, but not too soon!
Wish me luck!

My itunes Crashed!!!

Well, it didn't really, the hard drive of the computer housing my itunes did. And I lost every single song I had purchased online...or so I thought.

Yes, losing your itunes library seems like a huge deal but it actually isn't. Provided you can remember your itunes ID password (a problem for most people in my family) you can still save your songs! All you have to do is plug your ipod into another computer, preferably one with itunes already installed, and then you can transfer all your purchases .

Simple. Yet I still had a massive heart attack over the whole thing, though it wasn't just about my itunes, but about the stories I had written and saved on that computer and not backed up! I am currently in the process of re-writing these, painful yes, but I live in the hope that I can improve them while I write. So I guess the main lesson in this is to always back up your computer files.

Something I will definitely be doing in future...or rather now!

Hello again,

Well today I'm going to have a small ramble about Italy!! I recently went on holiday there, well I say recently but in all honest truth I went in May, which is fairly recent I guess, depending on when you consider recent... anyway, back to the point.

Italy was amazing, I went on a school trip and in total it took us roughly about 36 - 38 hours to travel there by coach, I cant exactly remember how long to be honest. Im not entirely the most observant person. But the bus journey was fun anyways, as you can imagine the idea of thirty, fifteen year old friends in a bus together for almost two days, with nothing to do, but amuse ourselves, was...intresting to say the least.

On our way there we had to take the ferry, and oh dear, is the only words I have to describe my traumatic experience. Well we got on and I was terrified consdering it was my first time on a boat and the only thing running through my head was the Titanic, not the best thing to be watching the night before a boat trip. But to make matters worse the sea was having what can only be described as a temper tantrum. You couldnt walk in a straight line without the boat tipping resulting in the passengers staggering halfway across the ship. But I lived to tell the tale! In the morning we arrived in Switzerland (after having the most uncomfortable sleep of my life all the way through France,) you know you're in Switzerland when you look out of the window and all you see is trees, hills and um...trees.

Well eventuallyyyyy we arrived in Italy and wow. WOW. I want to live there! We arrived at our hotel, not the nicest but its a school trip, what can you expect? Oh and did I mention it was on the beach? Blue skies, white sands, life was looking good. But guess what? It gets better! The next day we visited a catering school, and the boys can only be described in one word... HOT. Never in my life before have I seen boys like that, to add to their looks they were the most charming people I have ever met, oh and did I mention kissing is a custom in their culture (wink, wink.)

The cherry on the cake though was visting Venice and Disneyland Paris, (I guess that would be two cherries on a cake then...) each was fantastic in their own different ways Venice was aboslutely beautiful, the buildings were amazing and the weather was just fanstastic, I saw so many new things that day! One of them being a nun, I've never seen a nun before! Also I have never seen so many pigeons in one place, or so many with just one foot! But it was the busiest place I have ever been to and I realised I do not posess any haggling skills...
Disneyland Paris was just as amazing, I felt like a little girl again when I saw the big pink castle, unfortunatly we only got the one day there, but we got to see some things! The rides I would most recommed are The Space Shuttle, The Hollywood Tower of Terror and also The Rock and Roller Coaster, these rides are not for the faint hearted though, let me assure you. They're quiet intense, but as a fan of rollercoasters I loved them!

I <3 Italy!

Ciao for now!

When I Was Joe

 Last night I finished reading a book by Keren David called When I Was Joe, and to my surprise I found it extremely gripping, I honestly couldn't put it down, and ended up falling asleep at about two in the morning on a school night. 

My first impression of the book: I have to admit judged the cover. From the outset the book didn't really do much to grab my attention, but when I turned it over to read the blurb I was intrigued. 

But enough about me, more about Joe, or should I say Tyler. The London boy is forced away from his home above a news agents along with his mother as part of a witness protection program after he witnesses a drug related stabbing. Tyler then becomes Joe, a boy who has an 'instant crew' a boy who can have any girl he wants, a boy who isn't Tyler. Through out the book, Tyler discovers new things about the people around him, and discovers dark secrets; all the while people are searching for him, the people who want to silence him permanently. It is a book that draws you into Tyler's life, a book full of unexpected twists. 

My overall opinion: One of the best books I've read! Can't wait to read the sequel Almost True

My New Addiction

Miniclip is renowned as one of the best free online gaming sites as far as I'm aware. It attracts users from all across the globe every single minute of every single day. I myself have to admit I am one of those users, I haven't been for a while but...when I did go on briefly, a couple of days ago I discovered a cute little game for children (as it was specifically tagged) called Mimelet. Yes, I am addicted to playing a child's game, but come on, who wouldn't want to?! This game is seriously addictive, I'm not going to lie.

Mimelet is basically a little computer animated creature with the ability to steal its enemies powers buy jumping on them and, well, killing them. The enemies powers are those of the elements, kind of, leaf, thunder, stone, fire, water, and air. You compete each level by reaching a flag pole, and that is basically the point of the whole game.

And I am addicted to it! Mimelet

Today I created a CV...I haven't printed it off yet, but am mildly impressed with my own language skills. I really know how to suck up to an employer and make myself sound mildly attractive! Haha! I'm bound to find a job soon now!

Writing the CV was easy to say the least, all you have to do is provide your name, number, address, email address, references and a few other things. Once you've done that, you're pretty much set.

...All I need now is to find a job...easier said than done.

Radio Times

Ah what strange things you hear when you listen to radio Scotland in the evenings. Along with some weird songs being played and praised by the presenter there are also a number of Scotland's own bands aired. As I was eating my evening snack one of these band names was announced. They were called the winning sperm team. Yes that's right, imaginative isn't it? I think there was also another band called the royal wee.

The question posed by all of this is, what the heck was going through their heads when they were naming their bands?

In my spare time, I like to do sports with my friends. The stuff every normal teenage boy does, football, rugby, sometimes even hockey... and then there's Parkour.

I have been into Parkour for about a month, and now I'm able to do all sorts of cool moves, like wall running, which involves running at the wall, full speed, before kicking up and grabbing a ledge. Other things I can do include, being able to control impact shock when I jump off high objects, vaults, flips and so far that's it. But I'm working on my skills and improving every day. 

Here's a little info on Parkour... 
  • It's basically the discipline of being able to move from A to B by any means, like rolling, jumping, flipping, you name it. 
  • It originates from France 
  • Parkour and Free running are different things! 
  • The main elements of Parkour are efficiency and speed 
  • Anyone can do it, you just have to know where to start  
My friends doing Parkour 

They are soon to have a new and better video out 

Being Ill

Here I am stuck at home typing this up. My head is pounding, I can't breathe through my nose anymore and I have missed two whole days of school. Yay! No school! You might think, but really I would have much preferred to be sitting in maths right now. In fact, while I've been off, I've missed the school photos and a drumming work shop, which according to my friends was pretty awesome. (Also according to my friends, the drummer was short and fat with muscly gorilla arms, but that's beside the point)

I am a generally active person, so for me, being stuck indoors all day is like being sentenced to life imprisonment... well, not quite, but you get the picture. Now, while I'm languishing in my bed, dying from some horrible disease, I'm quite certain of that, what does my mother do? She asks me to get up and buy her a newspaper. And not just any newspaper. No, no, she wants me to get up off my butt to go to the Co-op to buy her the guardian?!

Hey big fan of the paper, just not a fan at all of getting out of bed!
