I arrived in Brighton last night, ready (sort of) to start university again on Monday. BTW I just want to say thank you to all the people who read and commented on my last post. I'm sorry I took so long to reply to your comments but I was really, really touched by them. <3
Here's some stuff and stuff I've been listening to/feeling/doing/not doing
Tavi did a Reddit AMA yesterday and posted a link to this video. The whole thing is pretty great tbh. It's here
In the comments on my last post Kani linked me to this great image which I'm going to look at daily
Arabelle Sicardi's blog is amazing for pumping me up to Get Stuff Done. Bearing witness to her awesome rise gives me strength
As does my Kanye Playlist on my phone
Also, don't you feel like the world is simultaneously getting better and worse? I mean media is getting more diverse. My sister and I have been commenting to each other when we watch tv about the amount of interracial couples in British adverts now. Gay marriage is legal in the UK. People also get called out on their shit pretty quickly too now. But then Ferguson, ISIS/IS, right-wing extremism...
And after that this seems so petty and ridiculous but I'd like to say it anyway: I started a New York fund in a plastic jar. The amount in it so far is 12 pence haha. I'm dirt poor right now (COME ON STUDENT FINANCE!) but I would love to go to New York when I graduate or Chicago. To write.
Yeezy says: You have to crawl before you ball
I'm writing this on the 18th but it's gonna get published on the 19th but I've spent a very long time listening to every single song by The Strokes and remembering how much I love them.
There's a Zine Society at my uni now so looking forward to going to that.
And the 'novel' I'm writing is currently at 36,000 words.
Was reading Wayne Koestenbaum on his new glasses for Believer Mag and was thinking about my own glasses. They're large, brown and dappled with red, not designer, thick because I am very short sighted and have astigmatism.
And this is Sizzy Rocket - Morrissey and the chrorus is the chorus to There is a Light That Never Goes Out. Not gonna lie, I did think... Hmmm I wonder what Morrissey would say? But no, I can't stop listening to this hehe
[The video uploader thing isn't working anymore for me :(]
That's what I'm leaving you with. Till next time, lovelies <3
