Heart of Everything by Chanya Pepper (age 5)

Part of everything
Heart of everything
of everyone, everywhere
In the hearts
deep inside
there is a person
Deep inside
there is a person
sitting down there
and it is me
Deep inside my heart
there is everyone
Inside their hearts
there
nobody is afraid of the dark
there is the favorite
of everyone

Chanya Pepper (@Age 5)

This is a poem that I wrote when I was five. I didn’t write back then so I dictated it to my mum
and got it published in the Camden Herald <3

Merry Christmas everyone!

I hope you are having a GREAT one ^~^

Wicked in London

Wicked001
Last week I went to see ‘Wicked’, the musical, in London. I know really cool right?


Well here's my step by step account of what happened...

I woke up that morning aware of the billions of things I needed to do... I got dressed and had my breakfast. I rolled my eyes to the fact it was -3 degrees outside and I had to bike to school. I rubbed the thought of biking through the streets of Cambridge in my school uniform out of my mind and managed to get through the bike ride, and the school day, twiddling my fingers and checking the time every six minutes (literally).

Once home I had to get into my
dress, makeup and hair in about 10 minutes in order to get to an ice skating rink to meet some of my friends from school (that's right I double booked skating and Wicked to the same day... And no I didn't have enough sense to cancel one of them, xD not very smart).

I managed to get through the bike ride home and ran headway through my house to get to my room. I must say I should have won an Olympic prize for fastest evening gown change... My hair was easy as well as makeup...coz I'm pro at that stuff <3

I ran to pick up some cash at the ATM and made my way to the ice rink.

NOTE TO ALL DAMES OUT THERE: Never, ever, ever go ice skating in an evening gown. It doesn't work and it’s extra embarrassing when you fall over... O.e trust my mistake...

Heres some pics of my skating party...

at the same time O.e try it I’m sure you would love it too =^.^=

<3
Eventually it was time to make a run for the train station... ... And.... ... I missed my train!!!!! Shooot!!!!!!! If that wasn't enough we caught the slow train to London ... At this point I was high on adrenaline. If I had claws they would have destroyed the trains seats... All of them! XD

My lovely feet in a london taxi <3

Finally I got to London and made a run for the nearest taxi... Sadly it was really hard to find one... Grrrrrr and with only 20 minutes to go in London traffic I was getting a bit nervous...  but I grabbed a taxi and got to the Apollo Victoria Theatre with 10 minutes to spare... YAY!!!

When I got there it so happened a school was on a trip there. The reason I mention this is because a girl pointed me out and said, 'is she one of the stars?’..Her friend answered.. 'Nah she would be off getting ready... I recon she's the daughter of one of them... Or a celebrity!!!' Now this really was funny. 'or maybe even royalty from another country!!!' That is all I heard because I was allowed in to the theatre but a little ego boost doesn’t hurt on a night out to the theatre ^~^ Lol - it must have been the dress coz it sure wasn’t.... the
shoes.. O.e

Once inside I managed to get a few pics of the stage and felt guilty about it... Sorry guys!!!

DSC04540
This picture shows the stage before the start of the show <3


The performance was superb... I couldn't have loved it more, the actresses really got into it. And the actors were soooo sweet! The romance was too cute and very much enjoyed...

The writer of Wicked was very clever indeed to think of a plot such as this while still thinking about keeping to the original plot of the Wizard of Oz.

In the break I fed on some nice crisps and sweets... Yummmmmm!!!!

After the show I exited the theatre with my very expensive programme and went looking for the Stage Door!!
One after another I got to meet the stars, get their autographs and have photos taken with them. <3

All in all I thought it was a great show and I am in no way surprised that it has been a musical hit for all these years.

I rarely give things a five star but this deserves it.

Review -- The Island

Hey guys, just watched The Island last night and thought I
would do a quick review in between shopping and homework Winking

Here it goes...



island


Lincoln Six-Echo (Ewan McGregor) lives in a contained environment in the year 2018 and he has been told that the whole world has been contaminated and he is one of the lucky ones who will populate a new clean world called ‘The Island’. But Lincoln finds out that everything in the world he knows is a lie. He and all of the other inhabitants of the facility are actually human clones. Lincoln makes a daring escape with a beautiful fellow resident named Jordan Two-Delta (Scarlett Johansson). But it is a race for their lives and their only hope is to find the people that ‘made’ them. Lots of chase scenes and this film reminds me of Logan’s Run, a great film staring Michael York who is brilliant in this film and in Cabaret, Romeo and Juliet, Murder on the Orient Express, The Three Musketeers and the Four Musketeers tooHappy

All in all I thought this was a good film... (more character development would be great - why have such great stars if you don’t give them a chance to reveal their characters to the camera?) There were a few times where it was a little hiccupie but not enough to not give it a solid 4 star -- **** -- As it has some of my favorite actors starring in it I must say I enjoyed it more (:

Brilliantly acted and well cast -- Chanya Pepper <3

Song of the Week - Piano Concerto No. 21 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart



This makes me feel like whipped cream! very beautiful <3

Recipe for a Romance Film




Nothing beats a really good romance film (though you might not agree aloud). You know when its good when you have to pause it and scream into your pillow (girls) or watch it again and again (girls and boys). Ever wonder why it makes you feel all warm and buttery? Some may argue ‘Just because it is’, but in reality it’s a recipe. This recipe can vary from cook to cook but not all their food turns out right...

Now, I’m going to tell you a few of the things that Girls like.
l
l
l
l
V


1. Friendship before love = perfect relationship, (love at first sight has gotten corny)
2. Awkward moments (good when not done too often).
3. An element of mist (a common term used when they can’t be together that easily)
4. Things that show how perfect they are for each other -- before they know they are in love.
5. Itzy bitzy bit of corny-ness... followed by randomness <3






6. Girls like gentlemen for love and bad boys to faun over in magazines, so get it right -- no sweet girl marrys a rock star (harsh but true)
7. Teenage love is a great place to start <3
8. NEVER EVER EVER HAVE THEM ASK EACH OTHER OUT OVER A COMPUTER CHAT OR IN FRONT OF OTHERS UNLESS IT HAS A DIRECT LINK TO THE STORY LINE.... o.e
9. With the first kiss you need to nail it. They both need eye contact and it has to mean something special




10. Little thing’s need to be added in, like same color pallet of clothes, similar interests, the graphic below is a perfect example
l
l
v



11. NO HILL BILLY ACCENTS FOR THE GUYS -- NOT CUTE! :3
12. Keep the makeup the same between shots-- Keanu Reeves, Walk in the Clouds, last scene, FAIL!!!!!! (loved it doh!!!!)
13. No exchanging of bad poetry, its lame and an ear sore. >.<
14. Though its sad, its very romantic for someone to die... -- not in the creepy sense but e.g. Love Story, Romeo and Juliet, and TITANIC... these are probably the best examples of love stories and at least one of them dies in all of them!
15. People love seeing them over come obstacles with each other -- it gives a scense of companionship... <3




And thats the way the cookie crumbles <3

A Dream I Had


aquaeyesfin

I had a dream a night ago
In which my eyes
were the ocean, aglow
and if you looked as deep as you dare
you could have seen fish
swimming in there

Soon comes an old octopus
mean and cruel
I feel it has a dark purpose
And then he spills his ink out
letting it swirl about

He wanders all around
injecting black thoughts into me
I don’t now feel safe and sound.

This black beast needs to leave
I decide to find all the good thoughts
and with a gigantic heave
I toss them through him in a blast of light

He is gone.

So I close my eyes...

Goodnight.

Takashi Murakami-- MANGA at the Chateau de Versailles





Hi everyone!

I was looking through... I think it was vanity fair.. and I found this artist, Makashi Murakami.

^
l
l
l
I thought it was really interesting because I think Manga is a spirited art form and to see it in such a glittering antique setting is different. The artist put a LOT of work into what he created and it is very finely done, and the artists that made Versaille probably felt the same about their work, so feel free to watch the documentary and enjoy Winking
