So here is my inspiration for today, and these pictures have helped me with my feelings. My writing and design have come majorly from these pictures today, so they might be a little sad or lost, but enjoy. Most of them are from we heart it and polyvore

Musings && Steph Bowe

So I was flipping through the latest (I think) issue of Girlfriend (yes I do read normal magazines!) and I started reading an article about Steph Bowe, a young author who wrote the book Girl Saves Boy at just 16. Now I haven't actually had a chance to read the book, but it sounds amazing: all about a boy who has cancer, who meets a girl who changes her life.

Now there are a few reasons why I love her:

1. Because I ADORE writing and really really extra truly want to get a book published (yeahhh, as if)

2. Her blog has inspiration pictures. Inspirational pics guys!

3. She sounds really down to earth and awesome.

4. She's flipping Australian! Shouldn't that be a good reason enough??!!

I am hoping that our local library has a copy, because I am so sure I will enjoy it. And, as soon as I read it I'll write a review and send a link to her, because I care. (:

My Playlist;; Monday 13th Sep 2010

I'm in a sad mood after Skiff died (read below) so the tunes are not exactly mellow happy, but are pretty great as well. Of course, Regina Spektor is included. Wow how I love how she's helped me.

Dead and Gone :(

I am writing this to inform you guys that, out of all the things that could have happened, my cat died. It was a very sudden car accident, and before I knew it, Skiffy, the love of my life was lying cold and dead on the side of the road.

She is so bright and colourful and loves life to the extreme, and she is a kitten of my other cat so we have known her from the very start. It didn't seem like she was ever going to die, the way she constantly ran around and around and never once got so much as screeched at by drivers, swerving to avoid her.

I miss her so much, but luckily an amazing friend of ours came and dug a grave out the back. She's burried underneath our massive old Mulberry tree, in a bushy clump sheltered by leaves. It was one of her favourite places to hang out, and I'm sure that she'll enjoy it, wherever Cat Heaven is.

My only worry is, and mum's, is that dogs will sniff her out, come into the yard and dig her up, eat her and then maul my other two cats. This being very precious Bangs and Skiff's mother, Tiffany. I am going over to her grave tomorrow to give her flowers, and I really do pray that she'll be protected.

All I can say is, that when something really bad happens to you, and you ponder God's exsistence and if he even cares about you, and then he fills you up with the most amazing feelings ever, and everything is okay for once.

Coming from afar

It's like forgetting the words to your favourite song
You can't believe it, you were always singing along.

So here I am, sitting listening to Regina Spektor, as always. She pretty much keeps my heart beating on a daily basis, isn't that sad?

I ran into a family who we are best friends with today, and it was painful mostly. Obviously, it was happy and exciting, but painful because I was just so missing them deeply. Her son is the most amazing friend I have ever had and I haven't seen them for so's just so hard.

It makes me want to just push forward the issue of staying close to your friends, because their so amazing. I am really missing them all and seeing them today just made my heart burst.

i miss you guys xo
