Hey guys

I can't believe its nearly the end of september and I haven't written anything nor had the chance to respond
to any of you guys. I'm really sorry, and this weekend I should have a chance to catch up with you all,
college has been hectic, the work load is depriving me of sleep, but the other students are friendly
which was surprising, everyone is nice. It's borderline disconcerting if I'm honest.
so in other news I snagged an internship for 8 months with the local newspaper so I have to produce 
1 article a month, my first deadline is october 31st though I have to write 2 since it needs a september 
edition. I'm excited about the whole thing, we're gonna have a journalist come in next week so that's going
to be enlightening I'm sure. 
Also I picked up a fine art course in college and we have to stay back till 6.30 on Tuesdays for life drawings
which essentially means staring at a naked person for 2 hours and drawing them...Ah the joys of somewhat adulthood.
Other than that not much has happened, next week is filled with exams and that's going to reduce the few
hours of sleep I've been snagging.
I perpetually broke from paying for train rides to college and constant coffee's but life is okay and it could be worse
some days are okay and the sun shines a little brighter than normal. It's okay.

so how are you all? anything interesting happen?
I'll make sure to respond this time too!

have a wonderful weekend guys!

later~

Hey guys

sorry about my ridiculous absence, I hope you all are okay?
So uhm, yeah the summer is pretty much over and I'm relieved for the 
monotony and consistency. so earlier this summer in July I'd gone on a writers
residential and met some amazing people, I'd crashed with five girls including me 
they were all friendly and a little fucked up and we spoke on the floor with our phones as
makeshift flashlights until the early hours of the morning, whispering to avoid getting 
yelled at. It was amazing though I won't go into too many details because I doubt
any of you would be all that interested in it. 
But yeah after I came back I had results day,
it was awful
didn't get the grades i needed
so i frantically contacted a college my friend is going to 
got an interview
they accepted me
I'm repeating a year
new subjects
i have a plan that i spent two weeks researching
cambridge offers behavioural science
I'm gonna do bio, psychology, philosophy and art
I picked up my schedule yesterday
I have three early starts
and an hour long journey on a good day
I'm excited in all honesty
oh and before i forget
Thank you all for the daily deviation and the new watchers
and the staggering amount of comments
i will try and reply to them to the best of my abilities
in other news
textbooks are expensive
and i can't afford lunch
but i have an industrial sized jar of red vines candy
and enough money for the train fair for the rest of this month
ah college life, i can smell the poverty

but anyway how are you all? are any of you guys still pursuing education?
if so what are your subjects?


anyway have a nice weekend!

Dearest,
the Dawsons
put up a bird house near
the public bins,
gold finches have been
stealing breadcrumbs ever since.

Last tuesday the neighbours
upstairs, the doctors, you know
the ones; the flat that
smells like a corpse,
well they flooded the flat.
Frogs have moved in
and theres algae clawing
at the walls.

The ice cream truck doesn't
come down the road,
anymore,
not after
little Suzie climbed in
and went missing a month ago,
her body lay between
waters and strawberry sauce
in the Ruislip Lido, such a shame

Mum's brought hydrangeas,
pretty purple flowers,
she thinks they could brighten
the place up.
I think you'd like them
if it weren't for the
dead mouse we found
beneath the pot.

Feature: sense-and-stupidity

Hi guys

So, a writer on DA whom I have admired for many years as she was a poet
who'd I'd stumbled across when I'd just started to dabble in the
writing field has recently published a book.
Her username is :iconsense-and-stupidity:
Her book is comprised of her poetry, 
I myself am saving up to buy a copy
(the struggles of a lowly college student)
and I personally wanted to do a feature of her works
and hopefully give her the credit she deserves, and is long overdue for.
Sense-and-stupidity also known as the brilliant Elizabeth DeBunce
has seriously influenced my own ability as a writer
whom I have been inspired by many a time
her writing is full of clarity and depth 
she writes about complex ideas and uses visceral imagery 
that I can only dream to accomplish one day.

So here's a small feature of some of her work:











so here are just a few of my personal favorite's, if you guys like this little
taster please go and check out more of her work.

Also she has just recently published a collection of some more of her poetry
some of it is new and not on here so please check out the link and below and support
her writing as she is one of the most talented writers out here 
and her style of writing is so unique that I wanted to share it with you all.

Symbols and Spaceswww.barnesandnoble.com/…

so that's my lil' feature done,
i hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week

  • Mood: Neutral
  • Listening to: cigarette daydreams-cage the elephant
  • Reading: Lolita Vladimir Nabokov
  • Drinking: coffee
We were these
electric beings, the
golden girls, the end
screen starlets who
glimmered like the
city lights beneath
us, swaying on rooftops
like gold plated gods
we were narcotic heart beats
and six shots of
vodka on a sunday afternoon
like morose sun worshippers
roaming the streets like
monroe wannabes searching
for something to take the
edge off the monotony

There was a magic in our madness
our souls were messy
and our eyes were
bright and reckless
we were the wild youth
frantic spirits
who'd come to
the conclusion that
our fifteen minutes
of fame had come
to an end.
Unbridled optimism meets an uncaring universe
its summer, it's hot which means the days are longer giving me an excuse to perch on street corners and indulge in mindless conversations with strangers

So this is where I write something about myself in which you (the person reading this) will judge my character on. I generally don' t like filling these things in since I feel narcissistic and I never really know what to write about in here anyway. I mean I just learn about myself and that's rather dull in my opinion. So, how are you? Are you having an okay day? If not I hope you have a lovely day anyway. If you really are interested in knowing "me" then note me and I can learn about you too, it'll be like an exchange and it'll be not only more fair but fun!
Interests

opinion on romantic relationships?
