Things to Live By #1

I’d rather be over-ambitious. 



You’re selfish. In the most manipulative and discrete way. You’re a storyteller with the most innocent looking of faces. We believed you, we trusted you and we fell victim to your cruel games and there are still days we’d take that all back because the gold still glistens. That’s the hardest thing; the thing that damages our pride most and feeds yours.

You’re a conflicted character. I’m not sure if you even know who you’re supposed to be yourself. The character you’ve created is surely different in your eyes as it is in ours; and in mine to theirs, theirs to others. No one knows, but we all like to believe that we do.

It’s difficult to imagine that you’re not one of a kind but frankly, you’re both as bad as each other.

Not in the business of writing explicit details or specifying fact or fiction anymore. If the shoe fits, they say. 

I’m back.


The Real Neat Blog Award

It’s Thursday and I’ve struggled to post all week, bar from my recent interview with Tell the Wolves.

Things are hectic at the moment – balancing college and my freelance graphics work (check out this survey!), I’ve also been trying to find myself a job, so my blog might be getting a little neglected. Alas, I’ll try my best to get things back up onto their feet within the next couple of days.

Something that kickstarted me to write a post this morning – apart from my late start at college – was the wonderful Sam (bellsiebooks) who volunteered me for The Real Neat Blog Award. Thank you Sam! ❤

Loft Beds and UV Lights

Delirious Antidotes

There’s a certain desire for egoism that I believe almost every human obtains. We want to be remembered and some of us will go to extremes to ensure that we are. Some of us, however, indulge in small acts to be remembered by, without understanding why we are doing it.

When I was much younger, I slept on a loft bed and I had bought a pen from Lorimers that contained invisible ink – the type that only showed up when a UV light was shone on it. One night, it occurred to me that I would not always be residing in that very room, that very house, or, even, that very town. I was right – since then, I’ve lived in four different homes and three different towns. For me, the room I was lying in was my room, and it always would be, no matter who resided in it…

Why Meat Is Murder

I think it’s so important that people read this. It’s quite shocking, really, when you consider that so many people still eat meat regardless of the health disadvantages, the obvious ethical problems, and the growing number of alternatives.

Confessions of an Anonymous Sinner

I’d like to start off today by planting a thought in your head:

Meat is murder.

I am a pluviophile

Unless you’ve read my about page, the chances are that you have no idea who I am. I could decide to direct you to my about page, or I could choose to tell you a little bit about myself here. In the spirit of beginning Blogging 101, I opt to do the latter.

When you write on the internet, your readers form an opinion on you from your very first sentence. They follow your words and begin to buy into the idea that they know the real you, opposed to the person you present yourself as on the internet.

I wrote this once on a blog I owned, started in 2012 when everything had a gradient overlay. If you’re interested in reading that post, click here.

So, who am I?

I am young (yet not inclined to tell of my age), female, and currently a student. I am a pluviophile (lover of the rain), I adore Peter Pan, and a duck is my favourite animal. I’m really interested in psychology and I form opinions perhaps a little too easily. If you’d like to know more, I’d suggest following this blog if you’re not already, but that would be vain. 😉
