Not Enough

My mother is feeding me more than ever. The stress sets in and the chocolate covered goji berries (sitting in one of the three containers of snacks she has places on my desk) just keep finding my mouth.
Good bye summer body!


Can You Feel My Love Buzz

"I remember Kurt telling me that the reason that he loved Courtney so much was that she was the only girl he knew that would stand up at a party and smash a glass table to bits just for the hell of it. I remember thinking that was a pretty odd reason to love someone" - Quote & Photographer; Michael Lavine

Its Black, Its White

Drop It, It's Dead

It's that day when you're doing practice exams whilst basking in the rays of the sun when you realize that your mother is opening the windows of the house. This wouldn't ultimately be a bad thing if you hadn't spent the past couple of nights filling your window sill with cigarette butts. I ran to my bedroom and was relieved to find the yellowing butts still squished yet totally exposed to whoever would look. Of course I then hid them, and although I was totally terrified for the whole day, mum did not say a word.

Another time I arrived home at 8am because (to my horror) I had been locked out when I snuck out. Thankfully both my parents had already left for work so all that was required of me was to convince my younger brother that I had merely gone out for a morning stroll. My brother later informed me whist eating my breakfast that he was woken up sometime around 1am by my yelling father who blamed him for leaving the front screen door unlocked...even though the keys next to that front screen door had a Tiffany’s love heart key ring attached to it. It's times like these where I wonder if my parents are really oblivious to all these happenings ("Why do you smell like smoke?"
"[Alternating friends name] has an outdoor fireplace and I was sitting next to it all night.") Or they choose to turn a blind eye to it.

Shops are already putting christmas items on their shelves, so I thought I should start thinking of items that I'd love to see under my tree this year.
Finsk shoes, Yarborough jewlery and a Micro-Sized Pig please.

Where is My Mind?

As the days left of school can be counted on one hand, the excitement of leaving school is dramatically increasing. I sit though classes giggling and drawing all over my friends hand and mine like we were back in 7th grade. We lie in the sun (when it’s not overcast and windy) and pretend we’re studying for our upcoming exams. A congregation occurs every time somone even mentions the word muck-up day and girls are seen only wearing their Year 12 rugby jumpers with the unusual navy blue patch sewn to the underarm. These final days of being a Strathcona girl are a little bit sad and frightening, but never have I felt so ready to move into a free life filled with new adventures. And although to my teacher’s horror, I’m fairly sure that in these last couple of days I will be assembling my sailor’s costume. Proritizing and time management are key factors in producing a great costume, exams are still a couple of weeks off.
