A long long time ago

A long long time ago in a green pasture far away this little llama had a blog, and disappointingly it seems she has not touched it in almost 6 months.

Apologies for the long absence but Llama Academy, Llama dramas and Llama Life happened and kind of froze me up for a while.

Nothing much has happened apart from me being inundated with assignments and major works in my final year as a señor …. sorry, I meant senior.

I have:

  • Completely finished my Lama and Fashion Studies at the start of the year, was happy with the result but immediately wanted to move on to the next thing.
  • Worked out what my self directed assessments would be this year, and have proceeded to do the smallest amounts of work possible… because hey I’ve still got 6 weeks O_o
  • Turned a 18 and had a large party, and have since done nothing to feel like a legal adult…

A snapshot from my raucous 18th..Isn’t it fun?

  • Continued working as a local check-out llama, with all the ups and downs required when working in llama to llama relations.
  • Continued to attend Llama Academy despite endless feelings of wanting to leave
  • Continued with a full workload despite the stress I put myself under with my procrastination spiral

Despite all this its been a decent year, I’ve managed to not feel like crap for most of it, really only feeling the stress at times.

And so, for another time I will make another post.

For now meet my newest friend

The darlingest Pony I’ve ever met, she is on exchange to our Academy, here for only a few more months. When she goes it will be one of the most painful things I’ve experienced in quite a while.

With that, toodooloo my friends.

It’s been good to post again and I’m sure I will do this again soon

And always I acknowledge the penguins and ponies of the world, I do not discriminate.

Oh Look…. I can see Christmas…. HIDE!!!!!!!

I’ve spent at lot of this weekend doing pretty much nothing. It’s only just hit me how much I need to get finished before the end of the term and I’m not looking forward to it.

While attempting to be more organized, I don’t feel like it is working yet and have found that the more some tells me to do something the less likely I am to do it, but even if they go in the opposite direction and leave me on my own I keep myself from doing it anyways.

I’m stuck in a vicious sort of cycle, but I can’t even be happy its the holidays coming because I’m going to end up having a total of 4 days actual holiday (providing I don’t work) in between Christmas and the beginning of the Academy, which doesn’t seem to me to be any sort of Christmas holidays at all.

If someone could find a way to drag me away from myself, give me a break from myself and at the same time provide someone to do all my work that would be awesome.

Just one time I wish I could do what I actually set out to do instead of letting it bowl me over till I have no choice in the matter.

I have no pictures this week, I am exhausted and would like to become a bear and hibernate for 6 months.

‘Till later….(Hopefully I will be able to get in the Christmas Spirit… Oh God…. Why is it so soon?)

Llamaville

This past week I was involved with the final (presumably) school play I will ever do as a señor… sorry, I meant senior at the Llama Academy. I was involved in it with a few friends, Sir Penguin included.

It proved to be a tad nostalgic, performing Our Town, a story about two people as they grow up, fall in love, get married and then the female dies a tragically early death.

??????????????????????????????????

A still from the wedding scene. Doesn’t Emily look absolutely fabulous?

The play closes with the idea that “Live people don’t understand, do they?” – referring to when people are alive they don’t realize what they have.

Sometimes I feel a bit like that in regards to happiness, Happy people, energetic people don’t realize how awesome it is to feel like that. As someone who doesn’t really live in either of those realms of being at the current time I admire anyone who has those abilities.

I had an interesting sort of week this week, on one hand it was pretty terrible; assessments, late night performances (performances weren’t the bad part, the late bedtimes were) and general tiredness, but on the other it wasn’t too bad, 1 assessment down 4 more to go before the end of term, I had a really good conversation with Mother Llama yesterday and have decided to go back to counselling, hopefully I’ll stick to it this time.

Since I’m trying to turn over yet another new leaf I’m off to go do some work, I know it’s rather shocking.

Hopefully your week went better than mine.

I shall see you all on another day.

Alpaca a pillow, I’ve heard it’s good for naps

Sometimes I get to the point where all I want is a hug….. and for everything to stop for about a month.

I’m at one of those points currently.

Unfortunately even though last week I could see my decisions going the same way they always do, it looks pretty set on going the same way it always does.

Which is not something I’m proud of.

At all.

In the slightest.

But I can’t be bothered doing anything about it.

I’m sorry my blog hasn’t been particularly exciting or droll in the past few months.

I try, I do (sort of) but I can’t seem to be able to hang on to the good experiences for too long, they tend to get overpowered by frustration or ever mounting stress.

Llamas’ are too hard to be around.

I think I might just bury under some blankets till the world slows down enough for me to understand what is actually going on.

Oh and for anyone wondering about Lulu, she is alive and well, and has taken up a very comfy residence in my stable :)

However she is quite unhappy with the unseasonably cold weather we have been having. It is supposed to be getting warmer not freezing over.

 

Best Intentions + Procrastination = Road to Llama Hell

In the past week I’ve been able to reflect on my current pattern of dealing with things.

1. I purposefully ignore the things I have to do

2. I realize how little time I have left to do said things

3. Commence the freakout

4. After flipping out for an afternoon or so I then continue on my merry way

5. And finally at the last minute hand in a shoddy effort and then proceed to tell myself that I won’t ever do this again.

6. Repeat

I realize it’s a horrible way of doing things. I constantly tell myself I’m going to change this time, and yet… when the decision comes I make the same ones I always do.

This tends to make me rather disappointed in myself. I know how easy everything would be if I actually I do it in the time I am given, and yet I can’t seem to ignore my procrastination impulses.

As they say the road to hell is paved with good intentions. I can vouch for it.

Llama

In other less depressing news Mother Llama has returned from her two and a half month long sabbatical to study the intricacies of weaving blankets without the use of opposable thumbs.

It is very exciting to have her back and she brought me back a new friend to carry in my saddle bags with me.

Her name is Lulu. She and I are going to be best friends.

Since I’m off for another round of disappointment in myself, I’ll leave off till next time.

All going well I’ll be in a better mood.

Word on the street is Llama’s are purposefully using facades

It’s been one of those weeks.

“Friends” have been causing a large amount of trouble at the academy.

So consequently I’ve been trying to deal with a little bit of it and make sure my friends Sir Penguin and Pingu are okay.

It wasn’t all bad, I went to an awesome party on the weekend (a very rare occurrence for me I know) and got to dress up.

Here I am in my lovely costume. Aren’t I fabulous? My friends barely recognized me. A triumph indeed.

And since I know all of you are dying to see what my friends dressed up as:

Behold Pingu, dressed as a dog dressed as a penguin. Genius hey?

(It’s almost like Penguin-ception…)

I know its a bit early for Christmas but Sir Penguin was just so eager we couldn’t say no. Besides, she looks absolutely adorable :D

So that proved to be a lot of fun.

Provided I’m one of those semi-introverted llama’s it took a little bit out of me, but it was well worth it.

I’ve found that now I’m a senior at the Llama Academy people keep telling me that this is the best year of my life, and all I can think is if this is the best I’m going to get.. what’s the rest of it going to be like?

This is a question that bothers me. Not to mention the fact that everyone is like quick — lets make our life decisions RIGHT NOW!

It just gets really intense.

It’s been an interesting week to say the least I suppose.

Just one more year.

That is all I have to handle.

One more…. then I can jet off on adventures…. or get started on what I actually want to do.

Till next time, Folks.

Get thee to the Academy

I think it only fitting that I made my last post at the beginning of the two week break and now, at the end I post my newest post.

As one of my  admired writers once wrote ” I open at the close”

So. Here I am starting a new year, continuing my blog, and growing into my hooves all at the same time.

So with this I wish us all luck

Till next post
