'ello! Willow is back. Today is a quick post to say Happy New Year, very late, but don't worry, I'm going to be back soon with more!


where i say sorry again and try to make things better with you

I've been really bad with tags and awards recently, so sorry about that! I do love getting them, but it's all sometimes too much to keep up with. I'll just say, THANK YOU for every single one of those posts.

From now on, I'll start afresh with my awards. Everything will be scratched clean and I'll start all over again!

And my first tag while starting over is...The Countdown to 2015 tag!!!! WHOOOOHOOOOO:) Thanks June for the tag!

But enough chat, let's get onto the tag itself!

1) List 1-10 things that you can't wait till 2015.
2) Answer the questions that the person (who tagged you) their questions.
3) Set some of your own questions.
4) Tag 4-5 people and with a link to their blogs.

Things I can't wait for:
Getting a cat! Did I mention this? My parents have finally agreed that next year we can buy a cat. I'm so excited:)

I've been wanting a cat for like FOREVER, but they always said that River was too young or the boys would just chase it, BUT finally they've caved in a we're getting a CAT!!!

Winter. Anyone else a Lunar Chronicles fan? I'm raving MAD about this series, finally the last (?) one is coming out, I can't wait!

I've been waiting for this ever since the last one came out (which was earlier this year). I think before Winter comes out, though, there will be a prequel. Which will to just as awesome!

MY JOB. Starting next year I have a job. This is really exciting. I've so many things I want to save up for, so a job is awesome. I will write about this soon, but for now, here's what you need to know...

I'm taking up babysitting for our next door neighbours. They've three really cute little girls. I love looking after them, so I'm really excited at my JOB!!!

A new baby! Mum's having another baby next year. I can't believe it!!!!! Another brother or sister!

I don't believe I even wrote about this WHAT?! How could I have forgotten to write about something as amazing as all this.

It's been SIX years since Mum's last child, so it was a really big surprise when we found out that she was pregnant again.

June's Questions:
1. What do you do on New Years?
Mainly have a quiet day. We don't do much. We have a nice dinner in the evening, occasionally have guests over, but never anything big. We don't go all out for anything really:P

2. Do you have a main goals for 2015, if so what is it?
I think I do. I aim to be healthier. A little while ago I started exercising more and eating better and I hope to keep on with those. I don't know beside that though. I will write more about this later when I've thought more about it.

3. Are you going to take up for New Years?
Reading more. I need to read more. I have no idea how long it's been since I last sat down just to READ READ READ! I adore reading, but I never seem to have the time. So reading is something I want to do more often.
Singing. I want to put some covers up on YouTube. I don't know if any of you know about me and singing. I love to sing, but I've never made any cover before. I reckon this would be something cool to try. 
4. (Odd question) Do you believe in ghosts? Boo!
Yup! Totally!!!! No one believes me, but I do.
I'm not tagging or asking more questions at the moment because I haven't been very active recently. Sorry about that. But I should get back up there soon!
On another note, I should have a design coming up with way sometime. It's taking a while, but I hope it will arrive soon. Look out for it!

my super birthday wishlist

As promised, here is my birthday wish list. I expect to get much of these, but a girl can be hopefully.
a polaroid camera
I love polaroids and I'm tired of faking them with image editing. This would be the most awesome present ever.
funky running shoes

Ever since I made the decision to get fit and started running, I've been wanting some proper shoes to do it in. These would be a God send.
gladiator sandals

 Who doesn't adore gladiator sandals? It's the weather for airy footwear and this year I'm determined to get a pair of gladiator sandals. I've put them on my wish list ever year, hopefully this is lucky year!

an ipod
I've wanted an ipod for so long! I've got heap and heaps and heaps of music I'm always playing (as you should know). So having a ipod where I can play it on the go would be cool!
pink guitar

 I have no idea how to play the guitar, but I'm determined to learn, but first I need to get one. It should preferably be pink, but that's optional.

large sunnies
If they're big and round, then they're what I want. The bigger the better. Sunglasses are perfect for hiding behind and spying on people in.

Well that's my list. I hope you enjoyed reading it:)

it will be hard, but we just have to do it

Hi guys! Today's post is rather important and I would appreciate it if you would take the time to read it through.

Recently, something happened to someone close to us that has made Mum afraid me being on the internet for security reasons.

So, that's why I've changed my name. I'm now Willow, so anyone who knows my real name! Please, please, please! Don't mention it. You can in emails, but in a comment, I would rather it stayed private.

That's the reason I spent this morning going through all the posts (all 104 of them) and changing all mentions of my real name.

I'm also changing the name of this blog. I couldn't very well keep it with my name in it. Even though the header still says the old name, it's really Eyes Open! The name on the header will change over once I get a new design.

It's really annoying to have to go through all this, but hopefully I will get use to going by a different name soon.

Anyway, look forward to seeing the new design. I can't wait to get it.

So what do you think of the new name? Isn't it awesome? I love it, it has so many meanings, which is really cool. I've always wanted a blog name with hidden meanings...and now I have one!

Anyway, I've got a lot of work I have to do, changing over the new name, so I'll be back later.

Again, I'm updating poeple and making excuses...sorry!

Hi guys! So I've been really bad at my blogging recently, I'm sorry, but I've been really busy with my piano, noveling and school, but don't worry, I'm hoping to slowly work my way back into my blog, so expect a few more posts over the next few weeks.

I'm hoping to get this blog running again over the Christmas holidays, it will be a slow start, but luckily, NaNo is finished and I've taken my piano exam, so I should be ok.

So watch out for my next posts. I'm hoping to post two blog awards soon and I've a few other post's planned, so just wait. There is finally some content coming!

On another note, guys, my birthday is coming up super fast, I'm so excited. It's only a few days away now (ok, maybe just over two weeks away).

I will try and post my birthday wish list sometime, how does that sound? I've got heaps of ideas on what would be awesome to get!

Yep, I've heaps of ideas of what to write, the only problem is my time schedule. I'm so busy these days. Its not like last year where I had more than enough time to write in. This year is hectic. But hopefully things will sort out over the holidays.

Until next time, <3 Willow


Can I Do This?

I'm undertaking a HUGE challenge. I've been thinking about it a while and I've decided I really want to do it! I want to go get FIT AND HEALTHY!

Ok, so I know what you're thinking, you're suddenly thinking that I'm overweight and fat, well that's not really true.

I don't want to loose weight, I'm at a healthy weight at the moment, I just want to get fit and become more healthy.

At the moment I don't seem to be doing that much exercise or eating that healthy foods. So I've decided to try and fix this and get fit.

In the back of my mind, I've been telling myself I should be doing this for a long time, far too long. It's time to make a start.

So from now on I'm going to be setting myself some goals, cutting back on the fat I eat and all in all just being a healthier eater.

I have no idea why, but I'm really excited to be doing this. I never thought trying to get fit would be exciting. #youlearnnewthingseveryday



Shower-Becky G

I don't know, it's just something about ya
Got me feeling like I can't be without ya
Anytime someone mention your name
I be feeling as if I'm around ya
Ain't no words to describe you baby
All I know is that you take me high
Can you tell that you drive me crazy?
Cause I can't get you out my mind
