What A Girl Wants

When you are friends with a group of boys like I am, eventually the day will come when you realise that their behavior changes. They'll start talking about more "guy related" topics and this is when you get that feeling that you are now "one of the guys". If your are an abnormal girl like me, you will be quite happy to be accepted by your peers. Occasionally, you can start to miss being treated like a girl. I've spoken to a few friends of mine and apparently, this can happen when you find yourself in a long term relationship. So for all you boys out there who have friends you feel like romancing or your relationship with your girlfriend is getting a bit old, then never fear. Zoe is here to help you. I don't expect you to know exactly what your girl wants. She's confusing. She's probably even confused by herself at times.But, I know what I want. I am a woman..I've read 3 books..and I'm a woman. So today, we are going to talk about the most popular things that girls (and I personally) like for there man/boy to do.

1. Show an interest in us
It's not the hardest thing in world. Most girls love talking about their lives or their friends, so don't be afraid to ask a few questions. Get to know us. If we say we're feeling a certain way or thinking about something, show and interest in that. We care what you're thinking. Unless it's about football. Then you can fuck off.

2. Acknowledge special occasions
Don't forget your anniversary. Or her birthday. You don't need to buy her stuff, just show her you remembered. Don't start creeping on her mother's Facebook page so you can wish her a happy birthday. That's weird.

3. Be confident in yourself
I don't mean, be a vain asshole. Nobody's perfect. Don't start comparing yourself to her or thinking you're not good enough for her. She likes you. You don't want to put down stuff she's really into. Confidence is good.

4. Acknowledge her
Girls love when the guy speaks first. If you see her out and about at least say hi to her. If you're in a group of people, you don't need to stop your conversation and start worshiping her. Just giver her a smile to let her know you're happy to see her.

5. Taking forever to reply
This, personally, drives me up the wall. If I'm texting you, don't take an hour to reply to each message. I'm taking time out of my day to talk to you. I want to talk to you. One word answers. Ugh. Stop killing my conversation.

6. Give her as much as she gives you
It's not going to work if one person is left pulling all the weight in a relationship. This could be either the boy or girl. Make time for her. If she gives you little compliments, accept them and giver her one back. Make some effort. It's not fair if the relationship is split 20/80.

So yeah, do that shit. Get that girl you want or, look after the one you have. Going on the theme from last time, life's too short. *Yolo mode* (I need to stop doing that)

Existential Crisis

Hello internet. I am a 17 year old girl and I have hit that stage in my life where people say, "Oh you're doing your Leaving Cert this year? What do you plan on doing after school?" Normally, I would brush this off and say I want to do psychology and become some sort of counsellor. But today my out look on life completely changed. Do you want to know what caused it? I received my school journal.

This year in our school journal, they have a page that tells you what points you will get for each grade in the Leaving Certificate exams. So, I decided to try and estimate how many points I could get, based on my average grades at the moment. I'm not going to lie, they were higher than I expected. But before you start saying "but Zoe, you still have another year left, the Leaving Cert will be different from the exams you're doing now", I am already aware of this. Honestly, I don't think I will get my estimated points. The point is, after I got my estimate, I went online to look for college courses I could do. And finally we get to the point of this blog; I have no idea what I want to do with my life.

I believe what I am going through, is known as, an existential crisis. Not only do I not know what I want to do with my life, I am starting to believe that I may not have a purpose and there may not be a reason for my existance. I have spent the past few days, worrying about completely stupid things and trying to decide what path I would like to take in life. Instead of being mature and thinking extremely hard about it, I sat in a corner for a few hours and tried to tell myself that I have nothing to worry about.

I am a big believer in doing what makes you happy. However, I don't think I can do what makes me happy because, I don't think playing games, drawing fan art and watching animes, counts as a profession. On a serious note, the only thing that I can imagine doing for a job that would make me happy is acting. I love anything got to do with writing or filming or directing (telling people what to do). Ever since I was a kid, I always wanted to work in the film industry. Here comes the problem with that. I am incredibly shy, when it comes to preforming in front of people. I desperately wanted to try out for my school play this year but, I was too shy to audition. It was, of course, a fabulous production. I just wish that I would have been confident enough, to be a part of it.

I will leave you with something to think about. Why do something that makes you unhappy? Who cares what anyone else thinks? No one can live your life except you. Do what makes YOU happy. You only get one life, you may as well live it how you want. #YOLO bitches. (Can't believe I just said that)

Let's Get Intimate (Celebrations)

Hey you little sons of bitches, guess who just turned 3 months old! We did you little munchkins! Well, I have been knocking around for a while but, I only really started taking this blogging thing seriously (lol) for the last 3 months. Yay! I did it Mom.

Anyway, for this entry I decided to do something a little different; Not talk about games or complain! Hooray! Instead, I decided we could get a little intimate. Would you like that? Yeah, I bet you would. So let's talk about my bucket list. What's your problem? What were you expecting? God..

There are 126 things on my list of things I would like to do before I die, and I have completed 19 of them. I have a long way to go because, the list has been getting longer in my head. I thought I would share some of the things I have done, and then a few of the more crazier ones I have yet to do. Of course, there's boring stuff like "get married", "learn to drive" etc, but who gives a shit about that? No one.

Some of the things I have done include, preform on stage, get blood taken (never again, I don't care if I'm dying), climb the Eiffel Tower, go to Disneyland and do a live webcast. My webcast was taken down from the site. Then people ask me why I don't make YouTube videos. That's why. Also I've petted an elephant. Aw yeah.

Things I have yet to do include, visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, bleed a radiator (so manly), visit every continent, and jump into a river or lake fully clothed just to see my mother's reaction. I do want to do a lot of weird stuff. Why do I want to shake hands with a gorilla or own an ostrich? Why? The worst part is that if I ever did own an ostrich, I'd call it Gary.














Also, my friend Thomas has just started blogging, so maybe you sexy people would like to check him out? You can check him out here. Also don't forget I'm on FacebookTwitter and Tumblr. Check me out and you can feel like this..



Thank you guys so much for reading, it means a lot to me :)

Sexy, Tiny, 2.6 Update

Hey you guys. Time for a tiny little update. I'm headed for Cork tomorrow for a couple of days so, there will probably be no blog! I am filming the trip (as I mentioned before) so you can look forward to my Youtube debut (if everything goes to plan).

I have a fantastic idea for an entry, which was meant to be up a few days ago but, I need to take photos outside and I wasn't able to manage that with all the rain! I do plan to knuckle down on that when I get back. It may or may not involve zombies ;)

See ya'll when I get back!

Lazy Summer

I don't think I was the only one who thought they would have a productive summer. I, however, always promise myself that I will be productive and prepare myself for the school year ahead. This never happens. I always end up putting things off and then never doing them. At the end of the Summer, I blame the fact that I have been on holiday or out with my friends, for my lack of studying or doing anything useful. I don't know what's wrong with me.On the last few days of school, when I was doing my final tests I promised myself that I would be more prepared when I came back at the end of August. It's funny because I actually believed that I would do it.

I thought I'd spend my Summer doing this;


But instead I've spent my Summer doing things like this;










Or this;










It's mostly the last one if I'm quite honest. One time I woke up with a frozen pizza next to my bed. I don't really want to know how it got there. I'm so weird....

I guess what I'm saying is, don't end up like me. I hope ya'll are having a wonderful Summer. Mine may be uneventful but, I am enjoying the parts I am awake for.
