30 Day Song Challenge. Day 5.

Day 5 - A Song That Reminds You Of Someone.

I Must Be Dreaming - The Maine.

I love this song. SO much. Not only are The Maine one of my favourite bands...this song reminds me of one of my favourite people in the world. (: This song really does make me smile because I love that person very very veryyy much...with ice cream on top. He's my best friend ever and I know that I probably annoy him with all my moaning...but yeah...I can talk to him about anything. (: So yes. Hehe.

30 Day Song Challenge. Day 4.

Day 4 - A Song That Makes You Sad.

Deathbed - Relient K.

Erm. You can tell it isn't too cheery just from the title. ): It is such a depressing song...however it is quite amazing and I love it. I figured out how to play it on the piano which I am awfully proud of. (: It is about someone who is dying...of Lung cancer...and they are remembering their life and such. And how he found like God and Jesus and religion and that. o.O

*Sanctify this withered heart of mine.*

30 Day Song Challenge. Day 3.

Day 3 - A Song That Makes You Happy.

Hello Again - Divided By Friday.

Hehe. This song makes me happy. It's ever so sweet and reminds me of an ever so sweet person who told me to listen to it. (: Divided By Friday are so good yet no one has EVER heard of them which is usually the way with the best bands. :l They are better than Justin Bieber. >.<

You are the reason that I'm breathing yet you take my breath away.
I won't forget the day you told me.
You are the heart inside my chest. You're the reason that it's beating.
I couldn't bear to be without you.

30 Day Song Challenge. Day 2.

Day 2 - Your Least Favourite Song.

One Less Lonely Girl - Justin Bieber.

Okayy yeah. To be fair to him, I admire how far this dude has come. He's gone from a Canadian youtuber to a teen pop sensation. Yeah. Credit where it's due...he's done well for himself. He's got millions of girls blinded by...well...I don't know. Apparently he's good looking...o.O Erm. With that hair? And that face? o.O The noise that comes out his mouth is not a nice one...or a natural one...and is not really one I like listening to either. And the fact that every Bieber fan cried when he got his hair cut (like trimmed 1cm off the bottom)...it makes me feel a little bit sick. :S This song in particular makes me want to shoot myself. >.<

And why would that girl look at him in a million years? o.O Although someone may have told her how famous he is and she wants a bit of the action I suppose. o.O

No offense...he's done extremely well. But why? Yeah. I'm still trying to figure that out.

30 Day Song Challenge.


Well. On the Facebook, there is this new craze going on...(I say craze. About 7 people I know are doing it. Obviously that is now the definition of "craze") and that is to do this thing called the 30 Day Song Challenge.

Basically, over a 30 day period so about a month...every day you post a song from Youtube corresponding to what that day's critea is.

For example...

Day 17 - A song you hear often on the radio.
So you'd put a song you hear often on the radio.

It really isn't difficult. But anyway. I love my music and so I've decided to do it like the loser I am and waste 30 days of my life worrying about which song I want to put on that day. (:

I decided to post it on here as well as facebook because...well...I don't have anything interesting to write here so I may as well use this little piece of cyberspace for doing something. :S

Something is better than nothing.

Here goes.

Day 1 - Your Favourite Song.

Only The Young - Brandon Flowers.

I could have put any song here from his album because they are all so good. But I went from my most listened to on my iPod...which happened to be this. Seriously though, Brandon Flowers is kinda like my inspiration in all things musical. He writes all his own music and is absolutely amazing at what he does. I love him ratherrr a lot.

He is also rather handsome. ;) Hehe. (:

Fill In The Blanks.

My Mum has tagged me in a Blog. YAYY. (It makes me feel valued in life.) And so I am here writing my own "Fill In The Blanks" post for her amusement.

I am... Ella. A sister, a daughter, a grand-daughter, a niece, a cousin, an aquaintance, a friend, a best friend, an admirer, a geek, a loser, a guitarist/fail pianist/singerishthing, a youtuber, a facebooker, an addict, an obsessive, a horror fanatic, an idiot, a beard lover/lovely, an Ella-phant...a lover of all the simple things. (:

The bravest thing I've ever done... is erm...well I am not really very brave. =/ I once stood up for my cousin when people were making her sad. I hate to see anyone upset especially when I love that person a whole lotta lot. I can not quite remember what they were saying or why (since it was AGES ago), but I remember that I could see her crying. So I went and I stepped in (as a big cousin should). I'd like to think I did a good job. She seemed to cheer up after I sang my Waffle song to her. o.O Even though it wasn't a big fight, and it wasn't that bad...it still required some bravery on my part...and since I'm not really very heroic...it was quite the feat for me.

I feel prettiest when... I get to dress up. When I get to put away my Alton Towers hoodie and wear a beautiful dress...yeah so my face is still the same odd thing it always has been...but being in something I think is gorgeous makes me feel all the better about myself. 

Something that keeps me awake at night is... THE LURE OF FACEBOOK AND THE LOVELY PERSON THAT LIVES INSIDE FACEBOOK AND THE OTHER STILL LOVELY BUT NOT AS LOVELY PEOPLE WHO ALSO LIVE THERE! Nah. That only keeps me awake a little bit...*rolls eyes* I have quite bad dreams. :S Which tend to leave me waking up, sweating and in tears. :S It hasn't been happening as much now I have my niceeee teddy bear to keep me company. (I'm such a child.) When I wake up feeling like what I just dreamt was true and concerned as to how my brain thought such a thing up, I hug that bear and then like...I feel almost like hmmm...comforted. :')

My favourite meal is... a good plate piled high with PANCAKES. I've become slightly obsessed with pancakes recently. MMMM, pancakes.

The way to my heart is... THROUGH FOOD. No. xD The way to my heart is erm...by accepting me. For me. By taking me as I am...with all my insecurities and problems and habits and such. I just want someone to love me for being Ella. (: <3 (Or...by having clones and a beard and doing handstands everyday. o.O)

I would like to be... able to go to that massive Ikea with Pippa (we have it planned)...able to fly...able to have cameras in my eyes to catch those priceless moments...but mostly to be able to see everyone I love, those I don't get to see. (: Vince and my Stefosaurus and Tim and Andrew and everyone else. Because they are some of the most inspirational, beautiful, amazing people I know...and they are some of the best friends I have in this world. I would like to be able to have all my friends living in one town so I never had to miss any of them because they'd all be right there. (: <3

That is all. <3 PEACE. xD

I've never been the best with my mouth. (8)

I've never been good at telling people what I really mean. Never been really any good at expressing myself.

That is why I love Music. I love how one song can let everyone know how you feel. Yeah so maybe to some people, it's just notes on a page...or a simple melody...but if you look beyond that, listen that bit deeper...you can open your eyes to a whole world of beauty.

If you just let the music in you can totally hear the whole story behind the piece. Whether it is just classical, instrumental, a pop song, a rock song, anything. You can tell exactly what the person was thinking, feeling, what they were going through when they wrote it.

Yeah. So one note may seem insignificant. But when you string them all together, you can make something amazing.

My "great" photography. LOL.


The Things Kids Do.

Now I'm not a mother. And I don't intend on being one anytime soon. But that doesn't mean I can't appreciate the "curiousity" of the young.

Fred is 1 year old. He is just a normal little boy exploring this massive world around him one day at a time. He is the sweetest, funniest, cutest man ever...and I love him very very much. With his inquisitive nature...he likes to...erm...think out of the box.

The things kids do, eh? (:

I love you Freddy.


The Things Kids Do

I can't take one more shot.


This is my song. That I wrote. Erm. I hope you like it? (:

It's about kinda like not knowing what to do...or who to be...or what you are. o.O But yeah.

Hehe. (: I love you. <3

Fab Friday.

Today is Fridayy. (: And that means FAB FRIDAY IS HERE. Where we write about something fab we've done this week and share it with everyone...(:

Now I'm not the best at the keyboard.
I've been practising but I'm not really very good.
But this week I tried really hard and managed to feel confident enough to record myself on the piano for the first time.
It is a song my friend plays every music lesson and I decided to try and learn that song too. (:

So this week for my Fab Friday...I am going to tell everyone about how I plucked up the courage to do something a little out of my comfort zone. And better yet...the lovely people on Youtube made me feel very happy about it. Now I think I'm going to keep practising and trying to improve because of all the support I'm getting. :)

7 Things About Me.

My mum tagged me in this post so I thought I may aswell do it. Especially since I've got nothing else to do  except stalk people's profiles, update my status 433 times in an hour and watch videos of balding men doing handstands. I should probably spread my addiction futher than just the realms of Facebook and Youtube and bring my Blog into it too. :P

1) Whenever I am ill, I eat RIDICULOUS amounts of Skittles and Digestive biscuits. They are the only food that I can stomach and they make me happy. (: Daddy always goes out and buys them when he knows I'm not well. Because he is amazing...and I love him very much. :D Hehe.

2) I am actually ADDICTED to horror. I could tell you EVERYTHING there is to know about Saw or Nightmare on Elm Street...you name it, I could probably give you a whole bunch of useless information you'll never need to know. The wall of my bedroom is plastered with pictures of iconic characters from some of the best scary films out. From Leatherface *Texas Chainsaw Massacre* to Pinhead *Hellraiser*, they look down on my bed...which I'm sure is the reason some people don't return to my house for a second visit. My book shelf is lined with Clive Barker's best works...I've got my collectible SAW figures, my cuddly horror killers. I don't care what people think...I like it. :P

3) I may love Quadratic Equations more than I love my shoes. (I love my shoes a lot). I just absolutely love Quadratics. They make me smile. It is just like the best thing since sliced bread. (I think sliced bread is amazing...much better than regular bread).

4) I am rubbish at sleeping. =/ I get to sleep after trying for an hour then wake up and only 10 minutes will have passed. Then I'll have another hour of attempting to doze off...just to fail miserably again. And on the occasion that I DO fall asleep...it'll be rudely interupted by some horrible dream about people drowning. By the time I actually get some rest...it is time to wake up. :l And they wonder why I'm tired in the mornings. >.<

5) If I could have a pet which was ANY animal in the world, I would have a Marine Iguana. After watching a video about the Galapagos islands in yet another Biology lesson...I fell in love with these lizard things. They sneeze up salt! How much cuter can you get?! Ok. So maybe you'd rather a fluffy rabbit, or a kitten, or a puppy...but I think they are adoraaaable. Hehe.

6) I am veryy competitive...especially when it comes to video games. This is where I take after my brother. When we play any of those kids Buzz games together, it usually ends up in tears...(His tears...because I beat him everytime.) When we play as a team though...we're unstoppable. :P The HOURS we spent battling each other because we each wanted to beat the others high score. The leader board on the Wii Fit for the football game goes like this...

Joe - 555 PERFECT
Ella - 555 PERFECT
Joe - 555 PERFECT
Ella - 555 PERFECT
Joe - 555 PERFECT
Ella - 555 PERFECT

You get the idea.

My lovely big brother and I. (:

7) I have a whole bunch of people I'd love to see. People who live overseas, people who have moved, people I've never met before. From Guam :P to Yorkshire, I've made friends and one day I hope to have seen a fair few of them...the saner more normal ones. Hehe. For example...I'm talking to one of my best friends as I write this. His name is Andrew. He lives an awful long way away...but I hope that I get to see him someday. Because he is one of the most amazing people I know. :) Hehe. I have a lot of REALLY great friends who I never get to see and it is saddening. I wish it was easier to see them all because they mean so much to me. But hey ho ho hum. One day. <3

I was trying to find a cool picture of us. I think this is pretty amazing. :P

Beautifully. - Jay Brannan.

"How beautiful do I have to be?"

Jay Brannan is one of my favourite artists at the moment. The way he plays his guitar with such ease and beauty...it is quite extraordinary.

This song is my favourite of his. It makes me kinda sad. I get too attached to the characters in songs. *rolls eyes* I want to go give the girl a big hug and tell her she is beautiful and that he doesn't deserve her. :(

She just loves him. She just wants him to love her. But for some reason he doesn't want to be with her...=/

"It's not that you're not beautiful. You're just not beautiful to me."

Here's My Cover. (: <3

I can't be anything but myself.

Here is a list of things about me. (:

I like lists. ;)
I can't tie my shoes.
I love hand sanitiser.
I can't touch my toes.
My tongue is freakishly short.
My forehead is freakishly large.
I am sorta average size.
My feet are ridiculously small.
My laugh is usually more like a wheeze.
I sometimes break into random accents by accident.
I pronounce an extra R in words like "castle" and "bath".
I get mocked for being "posh".
I absolutely love Maths...especially when Quadratics are involved.
I am apparently too nice for my own good.
I got kicked out of my Drama class for being "disruptive".
Other than that...I'm a little bit of a nerd.
Music is beautiful and an escape from anything and everything.
I may be in love with a balding, middle-aged, fat man on Youtube.
I wish I lived somewhere more exciting.
When people spell things wrong, it annoys me.
Your and You're. People need to learn the difference. >.<
My music teacher rides to school on a bike. It is disturbing.
I can text and type crazy fast. Practise makes perfect I suppose. :P
When people annoy me...I let them know...
Philippah and Ellahh...are best friends forever.
My guitar is the best thing I own.
I really don't like Shrek II.
Saw is one awesomesaucey franchise...I have a slight obsession.
I'm pretty bad with first impressions...I usually make a fool of myself.
If I had a pound for every single time someone has sung Umbrella by Rihanna at me...I'd be an actual millionaire.
I love taking photos because of all the memories you can capture with just one shot.
It is really sad that I don't have some pictures of things I'd really love to remember forever.
I try my best to help out people.
My advice is a little lacking and I end up sounding patronising.
When trying to comfort people...I just say "Oh Dear" a lot and don't really make anything better.
But I'm good at listening...if that makes any difference.
There is someone I'd really love to see again. (Pippa, I give you 3 guesses who that is)
15th of October last year was one of the best days of my life. (:
I love my Geography lessons...mainly because the people who sit on my table.
I insult my best friend about 9048374821948 times a day.
I try and tell the people I love that I love them...because whatever happens, I want them to know.
I'm a vegetarian and have been for most of my life.

There. We. Have. It.
Ella Carol Ann McDonald. <3
