I'm a happy weird girl... musical theatre nerd... In love with a Russian boy named Kirill... (relax... he's been in New Zealand since 1996 lol)
Obsessed with True crime, British comedy and RuPaul's Drag Race
All about the fur baby life... have had cats in the past... looking to get one again when Kirill and I move in together, and possibly some little baby ratties and hopefully if the budget allows a wee doggo...
2 part time jobs that can get a bit nutso (boy do I need a holiday...)
I'm fat and I love cheese... I think those are all the important details... if you need to know anything else ask away! (Except if you're gonna be rude and gross lols)
I need some urgent advice... please help!
My boyfriend has been vomitting up blood for the last several hours. I'm urging him to call an ambulance, but he's not willing to do so. He's also refusing to let me call an ambulance for him on his behalf even though we're in different houses due to lockdown. I don't know what to do here... I'm really freaking out and I don't know what I can do to solve this... please help!!
Songbird_nz: Quarantine Day #6:
I have the most intense craving for Shepherd's Pie but I have none of the ingredients needed, anyone help a sister out? Lol...
Also... time for a thread of the silliest jokes you can think of! (clean tho they is sillier) I'll start...
What do John The Baptist, Ivan The Terrible, Catherine The Great and Winnie The Pooh have in common?
They all have the same middle name!!
Songbird_nz: I watched The Avengers and had the cheesiest beans on toast I could muster... Then I had me some Choc Lamington flavoured Ice Cream... tonight has been a good lockdown night!
Songbird_nz: Quarantine Day #5:
Had the briefest of conversations with my boyfriend through my window. It was super short, but it made me so happy for that small period of time I love him!
Songbird_nz: Braved a walk down to the shops... I need to perfect my scarf as mask technique... anyone got any pointers?
Songbird_nz: Quarantine Day #4
Me and Milo (little plush kitty cat that Kirill gave me) who has become my designated lockdown buddy have moved on from True Crime documentaries to things about Medieval Monarchy
Songbird_nz: One definite positive about this Quarantine lockdown is the fact that I'm getting daily text messages from my Mum to see how I'm doing love my Mummy!
Songbird_nz: When all of this is over I'd quite like to take a trip to Antarctica to view Blood Falls!!!
... ummmm... no, what do you mean? Of course I'm not watching science videos on Youtube!
New Zealand is now about to go into full lockdown in 48 hours for 4 weeks.
Hope everyone is ok!!!!
Songbird_nz: Quarantine Day #2
Drank my coffee out of a mug with a picture of a flying saucer on it that had this captioned on it "Take me anywhere (except Earth)" I think that is the first time I've shared my personal views with that of a coffee cup!
Songbird_nz: Day 1 of countrywide lockdown:
My Dad dropped off some fancy ass supplies to me, we had to correspond through my bedroom window.
I am now wonderfully stocked up on some delicious and healthy food thank you Dad!
I am finding it so hard to not eat it all! Resisting the urge to run down to the Mini Mart just to get chips and candy!
I have also had the largest nap I've ever had in my life!
Downsides, my boyfriend (who now lives next door) is not allowed in the house I fully understand this decision, but still makes me very sad considering this lockdown is meant to be 4 weeks in duration.
I haven’t seen or spoken to my Dad since my birthday. So we’re going out for dinner tonight. Just us. Hopefully it’s going to be more along the lines of rekindling our estranged relationship and less him giving me shit the whole time. If that’s all he does, I have many an exit strategy. Just a shame this place is on the first level of a building! Oh well, might make for a dramatic exit down a flight of stairs!
Songbird_nz: I am covered in mucus... excess flakey skin (thank you eczema flare up) and chicken soup!!
The year that gave me whiplash! Not gonna lie, this year has probably been one of the most traumatic years for me.
People I thought I loved and trusted, placed blame on me incorrectly and chucked me out of my flat out of nowhere. Oh well, I got a great new little flat and it made me get rid of some toxic humans in my life.
I had a seizure out of absolute nowhere, ended up in hospital ran MANY tests which all came back negative was really confusing and terrifying. Just glad that it hasn’t happened again!
The way my Step Mother has talked to me over many years and never facing any repercussions for her toxic behaviour led me to have a severe falling out with my Dad. If anything, this means that my night terrors are now down to an absolute minimum.
However, the highs have been incredibly high this year too. I not only met but I fell in love with the absolute love of my life. We fall in love more and more every single day and grow stronger and happier every time we see each other. Yup, this is gonna be the forever thing.
Choir has been INCREDIBLE this year, it scared me last year but it really taught me to take over my anxieties. Definitely my favourite project I’ve taken on.
I got the amazing opportunity to visit Melbourne for the firs time this year and have catch ups with my little sister. It was an amazing trip and I will treasure these memories always, so grateful.
Oh, and the weird and dramatic weight loss which is not only baffling but something I’m incredibly proud of! Haven’t been this thin since I was 19!
So here’s to 2020 and the new decade! I hope it’s a good one for all of you!
Songbird_nz: I think it’s time for a life update...
So... due to some pretty solid reasons for doing so, we have kicked out my flatmate Natasha for being lazy, disgusting (NEVER did her dishes) having her boyfriend round constantly (like... he was basically living here... we often questioned if he had his own place...) without contributing in any way. Also, the fact that she was nearly 3 months behind on rent was getting out of control.
Her reaction to this was actually rather aggressive, but luckily no threats were made (well... nothing we need to worry about anyway...) we did have to trespass her boyfriend from our property tho, so the rules are if we see him on our property, call the cops!
But now the room is empty... and now the rest of us are liable to cover the rent missing from her (oh yea, she refused to pay rent over the last week) so now we each have to cover an extra $70 a week until the room is full again. I’m so broke I’m asking for all the extra shifts that I can, just to help cover that.
Also, a week after Kirill (my boyfriend in case you forgot 😝😝 yes! Oh my god we’re STILL together) moved into his new flat he gets told by the owner that they are selling and they want the house empty by the 31st of January. So he gets less than two months in his new place.
A silver lining in this situation is that Kirill is making inquiries about our empty room, soooo if that becomes a thing we could be pretty much living together! He says he can’t really imagine better, although we won’t be sharing a room he’d still be happy knowing that he’ll be living next to me.
However, all this stress has really taken its toll on my body and now I’m stuck at home in bed with a stomach bug! 😢
Songbird_nz: New season of repertoire for 10dd!! (The a capella group I’m in) we’re calling it The Attenborough Season... songs that mention animals in the song titles. My current solos are Dog Days Are Over by Florence & The Machine and Werewolves of London by Warren Zevon (hard one!!)
