My favourite red scarf

Before I write about my favourite red scarf…

A few weeks ago I bought some new boots. I love boots. Most of the pairs I own are high-heeled, and get a bit uncomfortable or painful to wear on a daily basis. I also grew out of most of my flat boots, or wore them out, so it was time for some new ones. I always have trouble […]

The Strange Geronimo Tour! (Wonderfully better than the Hey Talk Tour.) Farewell to Greg, who recently left Hey Geronimo. He’s been replaced by bassist Billy, who already seems to have a myriad of nicknames. The band was touring for the release of their latest single The Dan Kelly Song, while Strange Talk recently released Picking Up All The Pieces. Both terrific bands, so be sure to buy their music and don’t miss the opportunity to […]

Most of my money has been going towards concerts and gigs lately. Upon hearing that Anberlin were coming to Sydney, I pounced on tickets about five minutes after they went on sale. It’s great that James will be coming with me this time. He wasn’t too keen on spending a lot of money on VIP tickets, so I won’t be meeting the band or anything. 😞 They are one of the few more famous […]

The title of this blog post comes from a novel I read a while ago. I don’t remember what book it was. It had a lot of other wonderful life lessons and quotes mentioned in it, though they didn’t form the body of the novel. Another quote mentioned in the novel was this famous one by Lao Tzu:

The journey of a thousand miles starts from beneath your feet.

That was how it was quoted, […]

my phone last September

It’s hard to find phone cases I like and I’m picky as hell. I got my iPhone 4S last September (pictured above, taken September 2012, case-less), and for a while I used it without a case. It was, in my opinion, far too pretty to put a case on.

I dropped it a few times. I dropped it flat on tiles, numerous times around my house on carpet […]

My head has been in a literal daze, a damn spin, it’s been on the body of an English person, it’s fallen in the gutter, it’s been covered in paint, it’s been kicked, whacked, hit, and it’s just been abused. University is finally over for the semester and I finished my last assignment only a few hours ago and my head is so heavy I can’t even think. Granted, I was up late most of […]

Bleeding Knees Club write the simplest music, the same time signature, same chords, but have drawn this ridiculous array of fans that spew insanity at each show. I was standing near Jordan the whole time. I also blame GoodGod for having such ghastly lighting — yet, I find similarities between Jordan and, you know, that photo of Kurt Cobain, you know, that one, with his back to us, with his guitar. This first photograph I […]

Early this morning at about 3am, I had a panic attack. I never had one before, and the feeling was horrible. I couldn’t breathe, I found myself looking for cover, trying to curl into a ball while I was sitting at my desk. After trying to move off my chair to sit on the floor and failing, I bowed my head down and let my chest heave as I panted, until I managed to calm […]
