Christmas Time

Every year my parents both say about how they feel this pressure around Christmas to be really happy, and i've never before understood that because it's always been, 'Well why wouldn't you be happy? It's Christmas!' but this year I know exactly what they mean, I've had really quite a crap year and Christmas just feels so intimidatingly happy! It seems really bad to be sad at this time of the year but I can't help it!
Although saying that, I am much more optimistic tonight than I normally am, I'm finally feeling quite christmassy and also the fact that it's almost a new year is a nice way to look forward to a fresh start, so that'll be good, and also i'm going on holiday to Center Parcs, my favourite place in the world so that'll be lovely!
So I really do hope you all have a fantastic 2013 despite however 2012 has been for you. If you are not feeling christmassy then fair enough! You don't have to! Just enjoy all the little things.

Lets cry, Lets swim, Lets everything.

I was already a big fan of Keaton Henson, I think his music's beautiful and his lyrics are all so honest and poetic but this poem is truly beautiful. It's just. I don't even know how to describe it, it's pure art.

Books. Books. Books.

I can't explain to you, how much I love reading. It is such an amazing thing, it's one of the only things that makes me completely forget everything else that is going on around me. I just get lost completely in the story. I obviously love films and music but they don't have the same escapism capabilities for me.
I'm currently reading The Named by Marianne Curley, it's not one of my favourites I wouldn't say but it's just really nice to read, It's the kind of book that I could read for hours and get lost in it but without actually being that emotionally attached to the characters. Which is a good thing, I normally end up getting attached to characters then one of them dies and i'm devastated. This is a far more mentally stable way to read for me!

Amazing photograph

So basically I didn't really know what to talk about today and I wanted to say something to have a break from my essay! So i'm going to show you a load of my favourite pictures/gifs/photos, k cool?

I love all of these so much, the images and photography and some of my favourite singers in one of them.

work work work

So i'm in a relatively bad mood today. It's just been such a stressful day and school in general is just getting hard. It's not that I can't do the work it's just there is so much to do all the time and I just agghh I NEED TO SLEEP.
I permanently want to go to bed and not do anything but I have so much work to do I can't do that. It probably didn't help that I went to centre parcs either as that was so amazing and it makes normal life just so much more depressing again.
At least it's Christmas soon which will be good but I love buying people presents and I don't have a job so can't really afford any. I'm starting to make some which is nice and therapeutic for me because it's drawing but it also means i'm doing that instead of the work I need to do for school!
Oh life.

My Spiritual Home

I've always been a big lover of Centre Parcs, maybe 'big lover' is an understatement. I would pretty much do anything to live there. It's amazing, I just completely forget about the rest of the world when I'm there. Normally me and my family go there for about 5 nights or something, and we're planning on going between Christmas and New years for a couple of nights; but my Dad mentioned that they do day trips, where you can book it for just a day so earlier yesterday my Dad asked, 'Would you want to go to Centre Parcs for a day?' So I said 'Definitely' then he said 'Today???' So last night I went to Centre Parcs! It was brilliant, I love that place so much and it's just made me more excited to go later on in the year. If you have the chance to go, seriously it's the best.
A little bit obsessed,

I'm going to see this band on Thursday next week in Southampton I think and it's going to be so good, listen to this song, it's awesome. That is all I have to say today,

I've always loved reading as long as I can remember but in the past couple of years I keep on dropping in and out of it, I will go through phases of not being able to put a book down and not being being able to pick one up in months.
At the moment i'm in the first mind frame. I've read the Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead series before and yet it is constantly amazing. I cannot get over how much I love these books. They manage to be really easy to read and an amazing story at the same time. Although on the downside it means I've literally done no work as i'm just reading all the time! Ah well, school never got people anywhere. Books did. 
It just blows my mind how all these amazing stories are formed with 26 letters. Crazy huh?

If I did any less I think I might be dead.

This weekend has been an unbelievable waste of time, I mean I've wasted time before but this is on a whole other level. I have literally done nothing other than make a very good cup of coffee. I can honestly say that is all I have achieved  Yesterday I watched TV all day (specifically- The Paradise, which is really good, go watch it!) then I watched 5 years of engagement which is suitably mediocre. It's quite funny but not buy worthy, but if you can, rent it or something it's quite amusing. Then today, this post is probably the post productive thing I've done (except the cup of coffee of course).
So there we go, that's how my life's going at the moment. I don't have any homework. I have some extra work I should probably do but I can't do it before I find my memory stick. Then i'm going to watch the Breakfast Club later and go to bed.
Wow. Life changing events I know.
I really need to start doing things, ah well. Life goes on.
Love you,
I'm not even going to read this post back to check for spelling mistakes or anything as that would be borderline productive, and I don't know if I can handle that.

I had a big debate with my Dad the other day on tattoos so I feel like talking about them. He is anti them and I definitely want to get one. He was saying that 'yes but in 30 years it'll be an ugly purple smudge, that you'll probably regret' but my point is. Who cares if it looks bad? You don't get a tattoo because you think it'll look nice, you get one because of the meaning behind it. Also, if you never did anything in your life just because there is a slight possibility you might regret it in three decades time, you would never do anything worthwhile.
I know I would regret it if I didn't get a tattoo so I either don't get one and have guaranteed regret. Or I get one a possibly regret it in years to come?

It's getting better

I'm actually enjoying school at the moment, I like the lessons and the horrible head of year is off for a couple of weeks so it's far more relaxing so i'm feeling better about things. Ooh just remembered I have to present something in a lesson tomorrow oh and everything became bad again! Haha oh well, being content never lasts that long anyway, I didn't even get to the end of this post without it all come tumbling down! Ah well, life goes on, things get better, blahdy blah whatever.

Back to School

I go back to the hell hole that is sixth form tomorrow, to return to my continuous piles of essays and homework. It won't be so bad I get to see my friends but still. I just don't see the point, I hate a lot of the teaches who are pretty bad teachers anyway, one was off for about a month anyway so a lot of my day is just private study. Where I could just be doing the work at home, but oh well i'm still there at the crack of dawn. At least it's non-uniform now and we have lost our disgusting navy blazers. Who wears navy and black? Seriously?
Oh I just remember this article by Caitlin Moran I read the other day which was really funny, talking about a game you can play called shag order. I need to tell my friends about it tomorrow. Basically you pick a group of people, a cast, a band anything like that and put them in the order you would shag them. Her example was the Muppets which was very funny. I'm thinking more Avengers cast but each to their own.
Anyway i'm off to do more essay writing, fun. fun. fun.

Hello again

So I pretty much have completely ignored this blog in so long, I apologize my friends! I would say I've been busy and try and make excuses but yeah i just haven't been bothered, and once I get out of the habit of doing something I just don't do it for ever.
But here I am, once again! Rejoining you, hopefully there is someone still listening, if not I guess i'll just ramble to myself, which I am quite happy to do. What I thought i'd do today is reccomend random stuff, I haven't really decided what yet but let's see how it goes...

A song:
Alt-J- Breezeblocks,
They are relatively new, just won the mercury prize and this song is awesome, I don't really know if they're going to 'stand the test of time' yet, but there first album is awesome so have a listen if you haven't already, and if you have already well fucking listen again!

A book:
I don't really know what to put for this, I think i'm going to go with the Kite Runner as it is amazing, but to be honest i love I heart New York, it is terribly written, not exactly a literary classic but I love it so whatever.

A drink:
I'm running out of ideas here...a drink...an iced caramel macchiato (however you spell it) from Starbucks. Why not.

A film:
Into the Wild. Case closed.

A random other thing of no use what so ever:
Buy some crayons. I did the other day, surprisingly handy.

Well that's all from me,

I think so many opportunities are lost by peoples lack of confidence. Not going for a job because you don't think you're good enough or not having dreams because you never believe you will achieve them. Even just when two people like each and they don't say anything for so long that they both come to the conclusion the other doesn't like them back. They could of been so happy together but it was lost because neither was confident enough to tell the other! I've seen this happen with my friends when they have liked someone and that person has blatantly liked them back and nothing ever happened because neither had the guts to tell one another!
I just think the world would move so much faster, people would achieve so much more and be happier if they actually told people how they felt sometimes.
I'm probably a hypocrite for saying this as I have been to shy to tell someone how i feel, but i'm going to try and change that now. I'm bored of waiting for good things to happen to me or come to me, i'm going go and get them myself.

Ok so i kind sorta' just forgot to post on here for a week! I've just been busy ok? Forgive me? ok cool, *cyber hug*
So today i went shopping with my friend and i purchased a short jump suit, i think their called rompers. But its in a bright turquoise which i love with my now dark brown hair! Jump suits have never suited me before but this one actually kinda works, so yes i'm getting myself ready for summer!
           I cannot wait for the summer, i miss the warm weather and everything just seems a bit nicer when it is sunny!
The picture is of the same jumpsuit but i have it in a different colour.

So i haven't been posting for a while because I've been on holiday and there is pretty much no reception or WiFi there. But no need to worry, because i'm back!
It was an amazing holiday that i really needed but its surprisingly nice to be back to the town i normally dislike.

I thought as, a long time ago, this blog was about fashion and make up. A theme that has kind of been lost as i have just posted random things recently i though i would tell you what i wore and did make up wise on new years.
I just wore jeans tucked into brown boots with a black tank top and fitted jacket, with a thick belt around the outside of the jacket in an empire waist. I love dressing up as much as the next person but when it comes to new years, i really don't understand the girls who dress like their from Jersey Shore or are about to walk down a cat walk! Just enjoy yourself and stop thinking about how you look!
Make up-
I did a brown/neutral/pink eye. and a plain face nothing particularly special but then a bright red lip just to add some colour to my outfit!
Nothing except my peace sign hoop earrings.

So i hope you all had a fantastic new years!
