Hello awesome people of the blogosphere. I totally forgot about this blog’s birthday which was on the 7th. I’ve had this for over two years now and I’m starting to value properly just how much of a brilliant way of having a record of passing time it is. In the least cheesy was possible, a lot has changed in my little world (and the wider one obvs) since I started blogging. There’s the obvious stuff, like moving to the suburbs (I don’t know if these are even legimate suburbs but I’d say they are and there are white picket fences and flowers and stuff), getting my hamster, going through year eight, nine and part of ten, gaining and losing SO MANY friends, discovering that cream crackers are the greatest foodstuff everrrrrr, getting a few piercings and all the times I’ve dyed my hair, as well as the more complicated angsty teen gurl parts like this whole figuring stuff out shit and trying not to totally get buried under how pointlessly confusing life is. There’s all the bands I’ve discovered, the movies I've become obsessed with, people I’ve talked to, stuff I’ve gained and notebooks I’ve filled. So this post is going to be sort of introspective and a kind of celebration of all my favourite stuff I've recorded on this blog over the last year.
This is one of my favourite pictures I've taken for this blog; prom dress, flower crown and necklace are all super special. Funnily enough a few weeks after I had my lame pretend prom in my room there was the biggest freak out ever at school over year tens wanting to go to the year eleven prom which was actually like three people and I said I was totally happy with my mini proms because I'm that much of a loser.
And these are some songs which have been really important to me this year. Most of them don't have music videos and I'm too lazy to make an 8tracks with them (plus nearly all of them have already been on at least one of my mixes already. How They Want Me To Be- Best Coast Bubblegum Bitch- Marina and the Diamonds Pop Queen- Ben Lee Space Oddity- David Bowie Prom Theme- Fountains of Wayne. I have been trying to write about how much I love Prom Theme and haven't really managed to articulate just how amazing it is so JUST LISTEN. BE TRANSFORMED BY THE MAGICAL FOUNTAINS OF WAYNE MAGIC AND GO OUT AND LIE ON A BEACH AND THINK DEEP THOUGHTS.
ON zine! Because I haven't ever mentioned it before!
The book which had a picture I took on the cover! Which also happens to be one of my favourite books!
My SA rollerskates and the first real life moodboard I made (in my old bedroom.)
Jacket a vintage shop owner gave me, Brick Lane dress, Replay wedges and Harrod's tights. This was before I moved and I kind of miss our shed which was my den for five years.
I'm sure I'll add more to this post because there is just so much but now it's sunday night and time to begin a week's worth of school work and pray it snows again overnight. Thank you to every awesome person who follows me, YOU ARE ALL SO COOL AND I NEED TO DO A GIVEAWAY TO THANK YOU.
