I Want To Be A Vampire When I Grow Up

When I was a kid, what did I want to be when I grew up:

a) A magician

b) An inventor

c) An author

d) All of the above

The correct answer is d, all of the above.
Why did I want to be a magician? To magically create lollies of course, I would never have to worry about buying things, I'd be able to conjure everything I ever wanted with my magic. Duh.
I think every child goes through the phase where they want to be an inventor. I once wrapped a rubber/eraser with black electrical tape and stabbed thumbtacks onto the sides and it was my proudest 'invention'. I took it to school and everything. Genius.
The best one for last, an author. I wrote non-stop, on random pieces of paper, in books, the back of worksheets, etc. When I was in Year 3 I was convinced I would write an amazing novel, be hailed a child prodigy, sell millions of copies and become an international superstar. Unfortunately that did not work out.

Also I wanted to be a vampire in Year 4 after watching The Little Vampire. I would launch myself off the top of the couch and attempt to a vampire? This post is getting sadder and sadder by the sentence... Of course, vampires, magicians, inventors (what a specific occupation) and multi-billionaire authors are not exactly jobs that I aspire to be now. Wouldn't it be amazing if what we wanted to be as a child was what we became in the future? And think of how naïve we all were, don't you miss being so simple minded? I do. But I guess we all eventually have to grow up.

Damn, I  am inspirational :')

Reindeers Are Better Than People

Movie Review: Frozen

I know most people watched this Disney movie when it first came out and the hype is over. But I won't let it go until I blog about this. Frozen!! Raise your hand if you never expected Hans to be evil and if you thought Kristoff was going to save Anna by true love's kiss! My hand is raised. I loved how it was an unconventional kind of fairytale where sisterly love saved the day! I also loved Elsa's sassiness when she was singing 'Let it go' and casually building an ice castle. Most of all I loved/love Olaf, the unknowing snowman with little knowledge of the effects of heat on him. Pfft of course I don't have every single Frozen song on my phone. What are you talking about, I obviously don't sing 'Do You Want To Build A Snowman' everywhere. Also I agree that reindeers are better than people. Because people will beat you and curse you and cheat you. Every one of 'em's bad, except me (and you).

Good night and don't let the frostbite bite.

HAHA SO TRUE Elsa and I relate so much
