Happieness is a choice

My name’s Gabrial… and I like Getting noticed. October 13, 2011

So it’s been a month since I updated this thing, and I feel without Cvetich constantly nagging at me to hand something in for marks each month I do sometimes fall behind. I feel bad about this every now and then, because as my loyal readers, I should be loyal to you. So let’s do an update.

I’m in a show, a play actually, I wish I was on TV but that’s still a little further down the road in my future. And It’s with a professional theatre company out where I live. I’m performing with many other talented youths who range in age 8 – 21. I must say its a little weird being one of the older kids for once, it defiantly makes flirting with cast mates harder, seeing as they’re all basically fifteen. But other than not really being able to “Get my Flirtface on” we are busy at work perfecting our modern-day version of Oscar Wilde’s An Ideal Husband. Now Modern really isn’t the right word I suppose, we aren’t changing any of the words or having Chevley be the harlot that she secretly is. But we are taking the play in our own little direction which should turn out quite nice in the end.

What else is going on you ask, well Canadian Thanksgiving has just passed us by and spending and absurd amount of time with my family is just the way I like to spend my holidays, well with Family and the hordes of pie each of them brings to the dinner, I mean really – FIVE Pumpkin Pies? But other than that there’s not much to complain about. Aside from the fact that my mother was unable to be at dinner with us for the whole weekend, and has been absent from my life for the whole week. She is at the Hospital in London with her own mother – my Grandma – who was rushed there from Owen Sound after a large tumor was discovered in her brain. My mother is keeping my grandfather company as they wait for my grandmother to recover in the ICU. But I know everything will turn out fine and that my grandma will be back to her old self if not better, because it’s still October, and 2012 hasn’t started which means my death quota is still overfull and can’t handle a single drop more of sadness.

I really wish I could end this off on a happy note, who knows maybe I can, let me think for a minute… let me think…. Doo doo doo do do do doo doo… dooo doo doo doo do do do do do do * .. got it, I recently dropped my english course and without any previous experience I got into a Grade 12 highest level Vocals Class. Hopefully this will improve my singing which I find dreadful and my friends find lovely… But it will help me out a lot.. I mean I have a great range, it’s just to shape that range it a beautiful home… on the… range. ;)

A teen wolf switched at birth by some pretty little liars while they find their nine lives are Haven as they are awkward at Degrassi. August 5, 2011

I’ve tricked you again in to reading one of my blog post’s which I should probably really stop because soon the internet will catch on and it went be long before trolls are unleashed on my blog. And I’m not talking about the cool trolls that live under bridges and eat goats and soup cans – I’m talking about the thirty-five year old men who sit in their parents basements playing world of warcraft and telling the rest of the people on the internet  the correct way to think, in the language of  “lulz” and the ever so smart comment “fag!” I in no way am against gay people, I use the slang only in proving a point, please don’t hate me gay followers. Now, where was I going with this…. thinking… thinking…. nope. It’s completely lost, not that it was probably ever there to begin with – and the thing to which we’re referring, is my mind, which I think is also being held captive with “Sanity” and “Responsibility”. It’s as if the three of them went away for a long weekend and never really came back, or they hit someone with their car and were forced to throw the body into the ocean and now a demented serial killer with a hook is hunting them down one by one to exact his revenge. And of course they never tell anybody about what’s happening because that would be the sane thing to do.

Actually I don’t think any characters ever really tell anyone what’s going on in there lives, I think a lot more tv shows would be dull that way, I mean the prime examples I can think off;

Haven – The Teagues Brothers, Vince and Dave – I’m pretty sure they know everything, I mean where Audrey-Lucy came from, why she’s so special, why everyone has their powers, what’s going to happen next, why it seems in every episode someone dies, and finally what’s for lunch at the high school cafeteria.

The Nine Lives of Chloe King –  Chloe King – Tells all of her friends that she’s a crazy superhero, avoids telling her mom although it constantly gets her in trouble.

Pretty Little Liars – just about the entire cast – I mean the girls are lying to basically everyone including themselves sometimes about what “A” is really up to, and it seems like everyone else in town has a huge secret they’re all lying about, like emo Mike… poor emo Mike, breaking into other people’s houses and beating up – or rather down, his own sister.

Basically any tv show where the teenager in question is a super natural being, or was friends with someone who was murderer, or secretly murdered someone, or cheated on a test, or is doing drugs, or is wearing Tuesdays underwear on a Thursday, they avoid telling their parents, unless there Buffy, but even she waited until the end of season two. I mean things will be tough in the beginning as your parents and friends submit you to psychological testing, but really I mean it’s gotta be better.

 

Tell me a story that consists of more, than once upon a time. Sing me a song that I can hum upstairs in bed, that can live in my mind.

So my summer really hasn’t improved very much since I last blogged to the world, and as much as I promised to vamp it up a little bit – not to be confused with being a vampire *eye roll* – The only things that I’ve really managed to do is get hooked on more tv show’s such as Degrassi, and MTV’s Awkward. The latter show, Awkward is a refreshing little slice of something that I don’t get enough of – High School Drama. Because as someone who actually managed to graduate this year I did the smart thing and signed up to come back – for a fifth year. Oh, that other really exciting thing I did… I beat Tetris, and for those of you who doubt me or think it impossible, seriously once you get to level 50 and obtain five gold stars they literally declare you a “God of Tetris” and there’s no levels afterwards, something that I was not expecting and now has me highly disappointed as Tetris was my one thing I did other than watching teenage soap operas made by ABC Family.

 

Something else my sensational blog followers, I promise I’m not a hipster, but if you have to forgoe the show’s atleast listen to the music, a lot of it’s Indie music – per say – but hey, without it I would never have beat Tetris.

 

Switched at Birth, Teen Wolf and other reasons I won’t have a life this summer. June 17, 2011

Filed under: Gabby's Pick,My Soaps,Rambles,So you could say...,Switched at Birth,Teen Wolf — GabrialGrewOnUp @ 8:50 pm

It’s true, I usually don’t have a life during the summertime. There was that one year I was working, the other year I got a computer tan, and that completely random year that I actually spent almost the entire summer away from my house. For this summer, I’m really hoping to find some great combination of all three. I’m desperate to find a job, I have Chicago to pay off, New York to save up for, and I’m also looking into buying a minivan. But I still want to hang out with my friends, and because I didn’t have an exam today and was completely bored after cleaning the house – I know and I still had time to spare? What a life – I started watching such wonderful shows as Switched at Birth and Teen Wolf, no TW is alright so far, but reminds me a lot of this show I used to watch called The Gates, it was actually a lot better and had a lot more diversity, but Hey, I can’t be to hard on them – the show is only three episodes in. Where as on the other hand my new favorite show to be is Switched at Birth, a show about two girls, who you guessed it, were switched at birth.

But it goes more beyond that, it goes on to show how although they’re not biologically related the parents still want the daughters they’ve been raising for the last sixteen years and the hardships they go through in figuring out what the right thing to do is. Which brings me to my final point of wanting to hang out with my friend’s. The problem is, I sometimes become anti social during the summer months and don’t really want to see my friends unless I’m feeling particularly inspired to hang out that day, and then usually that doesn’t work because we have to plan on hanging out weeks in advance. Really sometimes I wish my friends were as spontaneous as they claim to be. Now for all of you out there hoping to join me in some lifeless tv watching, or just happened to miss the last episode of your favorite show check out “http://www.watchseries-online.com/2005/07/index.html” they have almost any show you could want.

I guess in the long run, I’ll probably work somewhere horrid like Tim Horton’s or Subway – money is money – and spend all my free time watching my “Soaps” and planning for my road trip next summer, in my awesome minivan.

 

I don’t think so, I think you’re a 943 year old Time Lord. May 10, 2011

Filed under: Cray-Cray,Doctor Who,Gabby's Pick,Rambles,So you could say... — GabrialGrewOnUp @ 2:10 pm

The title doesn’t really have to do with the post, I’m not writing about Time Lords. I mean I could start writing about them, actually I will write about them. I love Doctor Who. But this post is more to do with the fact that my blog is considered somewhat popular – and by popular I mean that compared to the rest of the classes blogs (who’s highest days were sometime in the 70’s) my blog has just reached over 1000 views… I wish I could have been here for 1000 , but sadly I missed it and overshot by 50.

I’m not really sure where I was going with this blog post to be honest, I guess I just wanted to say thank you for reading my blog, I mean somebody has to be – It’s not all me – mainly for the fact that WordPress doesn’t count you’re own visits to your blog –

NOW – DOCTOR WHO –

I think I’ve written a post on Doctor Who before [In fact I know I have; here’s the link https://gabrialkwo.wordpress.com/2010/09/30/the-doctor-is-in/] So yeah read that, and then I don’t have to explain to you what Doctor Who is – Basically its British, and it’s Syfy, about a Time Lord who travels in a spaceship disguised as a Police Box.

The Newest Season started back up about three weekends ago, and I feel as thought they gave me all these questions – within the first 15 minutes I might add – to what the fuck was going on. And then they decided not to fill me in on anything. They just brought up all this stuff and left it to go on a  pirate ship. I feel as though they’re becoming Cray-Cray.

 

P.s. For those of you who don’t know what Cray-Cray is, I feel it’s the right expression for people who are just plain crazy – on a regular basis.

For example: Elena… She’s Cray-Cray.

 

The Doctor is in. September 30, 2010

Filed under: Doctor Who,So you could say... — GabrialGrewOnUp @ 6:20 pm

I think it’s easy to say that one of my favorite show’s is Doctor Who. For those of you who don’t know it is a british syfy show. The show has 769 episodes, 31 seasons [including one television movie] and has been running since 1963. I discovered Doctor Who in 2004, before they began to air new episodes,  and as sad as I am to say it, for I have no life, I have seen all 769 episodes since then.

The main character of the Doctor, has been portrayed by eleven different people – for the Doctor never dies. But if he is ever seriously injured he will just regenerate. For he is a timelord a special – now dead – race with two hearts, the ability to regenerate and own TARDIS’ – ships that when flown properly will allow the six drivers – the amount of people needed to pilot the TARDIS properly to head to any place in time and space.

The Doctor and his TARDIS – that’s short for Time And Relative Dimensions In Space – travel not only to different planets, and galaxy’s but to different periods in time. Which lead to all sort’s of adventures during times, of war and devastation – the second world war, Pompey – The Doctor is also known to have a companion, usually a human women in about her early to late 20’s, they travel with him and have all sorts of adventures. The Doctors most notable companions would be – Rose Tyler, Martha Jones, Sarah Jane Smith, K-9, Donna Noble and his two male companions Mickey Smith and Jack Harkness.

Now by now your probably wondering what this whole thing’s about, well I’m not sure if The Doctor has one distinct purpose, although he’s taken a liking to earth and defends it constantly the show does have loop holes. For instance, there is an episode in which Donna Noble is given the chance to change her life and avoid the events that lead her to meeting the Doctor the first time. When she does this it leads to the Doctors death, having not escaped a burning underground cavern while it flooded. Because of the Doctor’s death, he never meets Martha Jones, and saves her and an entire hospital – where because the Doctor was not there, everyone inside the hospital died. Which means the Doctor and Martha never travelled back in time to talk to William Shakespeare and end the apocalypse caused when witches implanted a secret code in Shakespeare’s “lost” play Love’s Labours Won. There for without the Doctor and Martha to stop the witches plan from happening, the present would have never existed… One big plot hole.

I guess all I can really say, is that Doctor Who is an amazing show that you should all have the pleasure of seeing. Because when it’s good, boy is it good. And when it’s bad… well it’s still pretty good. So watch it, and understand… That life is just a big ball of wibbly wobbly, timey wimey.
