ain't it fun? living in the real world


Hi, how are you today? I've missed writing to you this past week, but it's been a not so great week filled with quite a few tears, that the thought of sitting down and writing just didn't seem right. I'm not complaining too much because sometimes through the not so fab weeks, you find out things about yourself and the people around you that you may have needed to know or hear. Last week I came to realize a lot of these sort of things, like you can't always be nice to everybody, as hard as you may try, because there comes a point when your tolerance and sanity will wear thin and you'll end up seeming almightily rude even though your head is telling you that they deserve it (when they may or may not) because you feel like they're an almighty annoyance. I've also been made aware to the fact that I am "grumpy" and "moody" and "come across unfriendly" by some people, which honestly has made me angry, but it sort of wasn't bad to hear because now I feel more aware of how hostile I may come across. Though I still don't agree with the whole "moody, grumpy, unfriendly" thing completely though. I've also come to accept that May 23rd -25th is going to be probably the most heart-wrenching weekend that I will have to live through. I'd tell you more, but I'd rather not fuel the emotions inside me that have temporarily subsided.

Apart from my eventful week, I haven't written to you because I feel all annoyed that my blog is lacking in actual photography from actual day-to-day activities. I wish that I could write to you about how I spent my day at the carnival or the park with my friends, or how I went to an afternoon coffee shop gig, or went for moonlit stroll on the beach, but this is so hard to achieve when 1) you're 15 and have to abide by your mother's rules, 2) are 15 and have to abide by the government's rules stating that I have to spend 6-7 hours cooped up in a dreary old building 5 days a week, and 3) are 15, unable to get a license, and lives in quite a boring, monotonous town with little activity. But in exactly 4 days 21 hours and 32 minutes I will officially be released from the claws of education and be free to do what I want for 2 whole weeks! And also in exactly 18 days 1 hour and 58 minutes from now, I shall be jetting off, economy class, to Madrid, Spain! The feeling of excitement is beginning to build up in my lower abdomen and I think I'm going to burst! I can't wait for all the photo opportunities coming up in the next 2 weeks, and I'm beyond excited to share them with you!

Anyways, this weekend was spent taking out every single one of my braids and releasing the lion's mane of curly locks that lay underneath. I fell in love with the look of the curly bush that lay on top of my head that to not photograph it for you would have been considered as rude.

I nearly forgot to ask, are you doing or going anywhere special for your Easter holidays/Spring Break? I think I might write to you all the plans that I have for my Easter holidays, you should definitely tell me yours! I'd love to hear them!

Your excited lioness-like friend,

ps. I am now going to tell you my band of the day on account of the fact that they've been stuck in my head for the past week and I think you might like them.

I don't know very much about this band, but their music is my favourite thing right now. I love how their music sits somewhere in the gap of the late 90's and early 2000's, giving it such a nostalgic feel. A sort of modern taste into the early indie kind of music. Their upbeat tone reminds me of the background music you might hear in The Carrie Diaries. If your looking for music that you can jump around in your room to, while singing very loudly and off key into your hair brush microphone, then I think Spector's music is for you. Definitely give them a listen and tell me what you think.
