You make my blood boil

Did you know that blood boils at 100°C? Yeah I didn’t either... but I have realised that I must be getting really hot and bothered recently due to the fact I can feel my blood boiling away under my skin. So many inconsiderate things that people do really grate on me! This may be the longest blog in existence... as I get annoyed and angry at many things, but ill keep it somewhat short and sweet. I swear you guys will hate them all too by the end of this if you don’t hate them already haha

Being a dancer, from a very young age I have been taught to be aware of my surroundings. And whilst at the time of learning, it was purely for unison movement and timing; it has begun to seep into everyday life. With this acute sense of spatial awareness you notice the people walking twenty feet ahead, you see the cars slowing to turn and you have the fine tuned ability to just sense there is someone waiting behind you. Now I’m not trying to say that dancers are superior, we have just been blessed with having to deal with it on a regular basis. BUT! Not everyone is as lucky as us. There are people in this world that literally have zero concept of what is going on around them and aren’t aware that they are not the only person in the world. And sorry to be a little bit racist... But I have to admit that it is usually foreigners or tourists that are now in Melbourne... That really make me want to scream and shout. Just the other day I was waiting in line for the ATM and the girl in front of me got her money, and then proceeded to put her bag up near the screen and scrounge through it trying to find her iPod.... I stood there for about a minute before I finally had to say, "Can you please do that somewhere else?". She literally had zero idea that there I was, standing right behind her for an extended period of time. Then there are the people that just stop in doorways. WHYYY?!?!?! Clearly that is a space for people that need to move in and out of the store OR tram. Don’t get on and just stand at the top of the tram steps. Move in because you aren’t the only person getting on! Hahaha even writing this I am getting more and more furious at how completely ignorant and oblivious some people are. Don’t cross a road without looking... because it is probable that you will die. Don’t just stop in the middle of a pathway where there are quite clearly people walking. Because if you end up standing in front of me I WILL make you look like a fool and embarrass you. My problem is I lack the virtue of patience with people who are just downright stupid. And that’s not being mean... I just generally don’t have time for people that clearly have zero sense of the world they live in. Eyes need to be opened people. Start noticing what’s going on around you and how inconsiderate you are being to others.... Then I won’t need to have a go at you when you do it to me hahaha... I feel I should end this here before I rage out of control.

Oh... my... god... Talk about my biggest pet hate in all existence. This is something that makes me cringe and sick at the same time. Do not smack your lips, slurp your soup and chew with your mouth open. It is not good etiquette... and most of all, DO NOT DO IT ON PUBLIC TRANSPORT. ENOUGH SAID!

These people are the worst of the worst in my books. I just cannot comprehend trying to be something, or someone that you are not. These small things don’t actually change how people perceive you... If it makes you feel better, then go right ahead, but honestly... does it??? Listening to music that your friends like, so you can fit in is just one teeny tiny example. I listening to some ridiculous mix of pop/punk/electro/acoustic music where half the men sound like women and every band sounds like the one before.... But just because my friends listen to Michael Jackson and Justin Timberlake and booty dance to Beyonce, doesn’t stop me from being their friend or from me begin theirs...I love that in the last year, The people who actually listen to triple J has burst through the roof... and I’m sorry if i offend people but half the music on that thing is terrible (the other half however can be pretty amazing) And the hosts are shocking and put people to sleep im sure of it. I am not going to start listening to it however, because my friends do. I don’t care if I don’t know every word to Lonely Boy by the black keys. It doesn’t change the person I am and no one should ever be so superficial as to only choose friends who listen to that music...Another thing ive noticed people do is watch a Television show they hate, but know it will make great conversation with the people they want to be in with. You know what... I LOVE SUPERNATURAL! It is the greatest show... I love the US version of the office better than the UK original and whilst some people think Game of thrones is really lame, you are crazy NOT seeing it!People, it is ok to be yourself and be unique... Following the rest of the crowd doesn’t make you stand out and doesn’t make you "cool" or "popular" We are out of those high school games so how about we all forget the idea of being popular and just be yourself!!

I have decided I have to end my blog here... but do not be surprised if a new post goes up with another list of all the things that make my body heat zoom to 100 Degrees...


  1. Oh. My. God. So I had to get a Myki when I came to Melbs for graduation and at least half the time it wouldn't scan so I had to go to another gate. And whenever you try and leave the station it takes so freaking long, everyone piles up behind you and starts pushing, because they're the smart ones with metcards and can just walk on out. MYKI RAGE!!

    Also, I have no idea who The Black Keys are, so I probably don't know the lyrics to Lonely Boy either.

  2. you havent blogged in ages! i miss it! serenade me with your words!

  3. seriously - post again!
