Hey loyal friends who still check out this blog! (*Cough cough* not me) 

Umm so… wow… I can’t believe it’s been 2 years – 2 YEARS! – since I last posted something. Reflecting back now it seems so weird. I’m in year 9 now and the last post I wrote was when I was in year 7. Clearly a lot’s been happening. 

Well I just wanted to say hi and maybe I’m going to try to blog a bit more if you guys are interested. Comment below if you would like me to blog more as I have not been doing… Wow, I also just realised that I’ve had this blog since I think, March of 2011. That’s nearly 4 years of having this blog! Ha, T&T has come a long way… which is why I have decided to do an update on a little bit about me. Here is my ‘About Me’ from 2 years ago:

My name is Esha and I live in Sydney, Australia! I only moved here two years ago and I love it! I am 12 years old, and currently in Year 7. I love the colour GREEN! I have no idea why, but I just do! My star sign is Aquarius and I love playing sport such as Tennis and Netball. I also love to read, write and… BLOG! My favourite animals are Dogs, Pandas and most definitely Dolphins! I love dolphins and once I went to a place in New South Wales (where Sydney is) and I got to swim with a Dolphin! Another thing you should know about me is that I am a CRAZY Harry Potter fanatic! My favourite books are the whole Harry Potter series and my favourite movie would have to be all of them, too. My favourite animated movie, on the other hand is The Lorax. Well, I think that’s all you need to know about me!

And here is my ‘About Me’ now:

My name hasn’t changed (I hope!). My name is Esha which is pronounced Ee-sha not Eh-sha. I still live in Sydney, Australia and have been for about 4 years now. I am 13 years old (turning 14 in February) and I am currently in Year 9. My favourite colours are turquoise, yellow and mint green. My star sign is Aquarius and I still love to play sports like Tennis and Netball, but I am now also into Basketball! I still love to read and write but I also now love anything to do with technology or working with it, art, watching movies, hanging with friends and family and school. Yes, I do love school (most of it, at least). My favourite animals are still Dogs, Pandas and Dolphins but my obsession with Pandas has really taken over 🙂 I am not a crazy Harry Potter fanatic anymore (I do still like Harry Potter but I’m not really obsessed with it like I used to be) Instead, I absolutely LOVE Doctor Who! I am a total Whovian! Oh, and my favourite books and movies have definitely changed… My favourite books would have to be ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ by Harper Lee, ‘Chocolat’ by Joanne Harris, and ‘The Book Thief’ by Markus Zusak. My favourite movies include a bunch of Disney movies. To name a few: Mulan, the Aristocats, the Lion King, etc. I also love my old childhood-ish favourites like, The Winnie the Pooh movie, Piglet’s Big Movie and The Parent Trap. I also love the Pink Panther 1 and 2 (with Steve Martin), Johnny English 1 and 2 and The Princess Diaries. They’re all such feel-good movies! 

Well there you go! I think I’ve definitely changed haha! Do we have anything in common? Let me know in the comments!

I hope I can blog a bit more regularly now… 



(Btw, this is my dog Champ now – he’s nearly 2 years old)

Hey everyone,

If you regularly visit this blog (unlike me), you would’ve found that I haven’t posted since, well, JUNE. So I have decided to break this cycle and post NOW. You see, I was extremely busy as this year I was in Year 7, and there is a lot of homework + assignments, so yes, I could not even spare 5 minutes to write a blog post. Well, I could’ve but to tell the truth I had forgotten about my blog. HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE!? I am now going to make a regular thing of blogging.

Another thing I wanted to post was the currently trending ‘song’. Many of you would’ve heard of ‘What Does the Fox Say?’ by a Norwegian band called ‘Ylvis’. I decided I would post that for you so even if you have watched it, watch it again.

There ya’ go! And I promise I will post more regularly!


Guess Who?

Hey there,

I sincerely apologise for not posting anything for a very, very long time. I have been quite busy with… 

Wait, that brings me to the real purpose of this post, explaining the ‘Guess Who?’. 

So, we have been planning to get a puppy for a very long time and now we finally have one! If I start this post again, now that you know about the puppy, it would look a lot like this:

Hey there, 

I sincerely apologise for not posting anything for a very, very long time. I have been quite busy with my new puppy!

And that is the guess who aspect of this post. 

My puppy was born on the 26th of March, and is a boy doggy. We named him Champion, or Champ for short. Well, his full name is actually Champion Baloo and then my last name (which I am not going to put online). I am really happy we got him! He is so cute! But, being a puppy, he is also very naughty and loves to chew things, including fingers and socks. He is currently 3 months old. Here is a photo of what he looks like:

Hope you think he’s cute… because… well… he really is! 🙂


Weird and Wacky Predictions!

Hi everyone, 

I hope you are having a nice May! I have decided to write this post about predictions because I was just thinking… There are so many things in the world you could predict! Like, how many iPhones there would be by 2020 or… well, ANYTHING!

So… are their any weird or wacky predictions you could make? I’m not sure what predictions I could make but that doesn’t matter because YOU are the one predicting things… My predictors, leave your predictions in a comment and the weird and wackiest prediction will get a special shout out and become the prediction of the month! 

I find predictions interesting, don’t you?

Leave a comment! 🙂


This and That’s 2nd BIRTHDAY!


I am very proud (as the founder and editor of This and That) to say that this Blog, This and That has officially turned 2! Well, I wasn’t exactly sure when I started this Blog… so I’m going with the date I wrote my first post, which was today 2 years ago (5th of May). So, I would love you all to join with me in celebrating the 2 years this Blog has been going on for and I hope I continue to celebrate many more successful years.

I couldn’t have achieved this without the help of my teacher who showed us how to make Blogs in Year 5! And everyone who has been visiting to keep my visitor count going up and up and… you know – up. Keep visiting, please! 




Join me in celebrating a great 2 years of Blogging!
