An abundance of photographs. I've visited vintage stores, attended a fashion show, stitched together a bag, watched bands, danced, played board games, written articles, worked, and fed farm animals. oxoxoxoxoxoxox
Board game night.

I now have a job, and an internship for an art and lifestyle e-zine. Every Thursday, the writers gather around a table and review ideas. I mentioned a DIY project - yes, Laura's Art Club could be colossal. Albeit, strangely, I'm still the only member. A few photographs below; inaccurate lyrics, a night in town with Zak, a (brilliantly) coloured in picture, and playing dress-ups. oxoxoxoxoxoxox

I have written a poem entitled 'We Do Not Publish Poetry' for the paperback book, an article about encounters when purchasing clothing online, had a number of teas & coffees, and watched Girls. Temples' and Angel Olsen's new albums are continuously playing - Test Of Time and Windows from both artists, respectively, are complete gems ♥ oxoxoxoxoxoxox

A few photographs from recent moments - dancing to Motown at The Hifi Club, visiting a castle in York. I watched Inside Llewyn Davis. Brilliant performance by Oscar Isaac. Now I am listening to the radio and the rain. oxoxoxoxoxoxox

I am about to walk to Zak's to see friends I know from Australia. I guess I wouldn't be the best hostess due to only owning one of each item, ha - there would be a fight for the first pot of tea! oxoxoxoxoxoxox
There's no place like home ♥
The collages I did for Jenny framed on her wall.

I am going to write a book of poems, a proper paperback book. I imagine there's quite a demand for poetry. Yesterday, I walked to an educational farm. I hand-fed goats and a cow. After, I visited Zak who helped with the tiny worries I held. oxoxoxoxoxoxox
An old bandstand.
The wonder years.

Yesterday I travelled to the Temple Newsam House and Farm. I adored the rooms and history. In the farmyard, either sow Sandra or Charlotte ventured towards me to investigate, followed by Wilbur who attempted to stand between us and darted a look that read "Oi, stay away from the missus.". I received a tiny harmonica necklace from Jenny which I found can actually be played (due to Zak's curiosity). Almost every night, I listen to Australian radio and, at 1am, the same disc jockey starts his time on air. It always conjures up moments in Australia, that one cherished hour of the day when I could be alone with thoughts... oh, and the disc jockey, of course. Now I am in a house in Leeds with three strangers (lovely strangers), in a room, a now familiar room, with objects I own gradually garnering. It is wonderfully peculiar and dream-like and happy and sad. oxoxoxoxoxoxox

I archived Errol's day. I contemplated giving him a surname, except, I wondered what would follow. An address? A bank account? A Tax File Number? No, I like think that Errol is astral, there is a part of Errol in all of us (if we wish it). I have created a collage for Lory, had an ale with a housemate, and visited Kirkstall Abbey with Zak.

When I write here, I am always keen to avoid the subject of employment, or, precisely, unemployment. It is due to three reasons; the topic is already mentioned frequently in daily conversation (concerned parents and the like), I can't imagine anyone willing to read anything beyond a sentence about it, and, thirdly, companies are avid researchers so it would kind of feel like the boy I fancied at school reading a personal diary entry I wrote about him - how I looked forward to the bell ringing each lesson so we would walk by one another when changing classes *sigh*. Explaining why I'm the best candidate for a role isn't really a task I'm fond of doing so, yes, I will continue to avoid such subject - I am going quite well to this point, I think. oxoxoxoxoxoxox

After dancing to The Everly Brothers yesterday, I read today that Phil Everly has passed on. A brilliant catalogue of songs and delivery of words, he will always be adored - the bee's knees of rock and roll. Today I wandered along a miry walking track with Zak. I've travelled to Manchester, watched Anchorman 2 & Saving Mr. Banks, filmed Retrospect, and coloured in Chris O'Dowd. On the note of brilliant music, I am currently listening to;
The Jungle Giants - Got Nothing To Lose
MGMT - Mystery Disease
Angel Olsen - Forgiven/Forgotten
Morgan Delt - Obstacle Eyes
Lorde - White Teeth Teens
Lorde - 400 Lux
Jenny Broke The Window - Rum 'n' Cola
Sky Ferreira - You're Not The One
The Holidays - All Time High
Broods - Bridges
D.D Dumbo - Tropical Oceans
New Year's Eve.
