I generally don't write mopey things here - it does no favours holding onto the negative and I fumble with the fact that there is so much I appreciate. Except, lately, all I do is cry. Love is strange. I travelled to Liverpool to watch The Maccabees on the 17th and visited the World Museum. I wandered into an out-of-bounds room accidentally. Security were not pleased, to say the least (I promise I had no intention of running off with an African mask!). I currently have Foxygen's 'We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic' on steady rotation ♥ oxoxoxoxoxoxox
Not made for love.

I attempted to read poetry by Thomas Hardy tonight. I didn't read so decently - I find him difficult to follow, plus, I'm a fool for rhyme. Now I am listening to SoKo's album I Thought I Was An Alien, thinking about old love and that laundry I must do at the end of the bed. oxoxoxoxoxoxox
Bonfire Night. Street Style.
Thursday 6 November 2014 5:00pm
I've done Halloween DIY HERE with Champion Up North, edited grammar for university papers on Asian philosophy and poetry, painted, danced, and celebrated Halloween and Bonfire Night. From the rooftop window, I could see the fireworks all across Leeds. Today I have a much needed free hour before work in which I will have a tea and read poetry. oxoxoxoxoxoxox
A gift from Roksana for the poem I wrote ♥
Luke's band poster, heh.

I am painting the song Sparrow and listening to A Date With The Everly Brothers. I've recently watched Northern Soul with Matias at Hyde Park Picture House. We were invited into the tiny 100-year-old projection room. Brilliant film. An article I wrote about beards is published HERE. Yesterday I watched Benji play at LS6 and went to a party in the woods at night. Now to paint a swan. I'm concocting colours on a magazine - Luis Suarez is looking very prismatic! oxoxoxoxoxoxox

I have mazy feelings. I know previous unexpected events offer the prospect of opening brightly coloured new doors, it is just there are some moments where I feel so awfully lost. oxoxoxoxoxoxox
The Dad Pose.
Vance Joy ♥
Champion Up North Art Exhibition.
Mathias' 'R' outshines all the letters I did, ha.

I'm glued to The Mindy Project after booking accommodation in the Lake District that turned out to be a closet beneath a staircase with only a bed and a tiny television set in it. I watched many a television program in that closet. Time to draw a story for Errol oxoxoxoxoxoxox
Champion Up North's 1st Birthday.
Thursday 18 September 2014 5:50pm
I'm currently listening to The Walking Who and dolling up for Champion Up North's 1st birthday party. Recently, I've watched the The White Whale on Leeds Dock, written a poem, and watched a band. I'm going to the party alone tonight so am wearing white to synthesise with the wall in case I know no one. oxoxoxoxoxoxox

Oh, Lorde ♥. Her album and Jasmine Pearl tea are the elixirs for many a predicament. An article I wrote about Leeds West Indian Carnival is published HERE. I initially intended to photograph Street Style except there were a crowd of coats due to the wintry weather. I will house the small collection here instead. oxoxoxoxoxoxox
Leeds Beer Festival.

I am ready to go home - oh, to have parents, proper teas, a garden, a fruit bowl with fruit in it. I mean, I guess I could have a fruit bowl in Leeds. A fruit bowl for one just isn't the same though, is it? I have two articles to write and not a clue what to say. I don't see the words arriving at 5am, no. oxoxoxoxoxoxox
West Indian Carnival.
The Belgrave & Milo.

English comedic panel shows are brilliant ♥. I can never watch enough! Recently, I've wandered through the Hollies, had a giant coffee, written poetry, visited a farm, spent time with friends and watched a Vivian Maier documentary. I'm currently collecting bearded men for an article - not such a terrible task, ha. oxoxoxoxoxoxox
