i’m back at uni this week, and i’m finding it very difficult to study again after such a long break. i can feel myself beginning to feel overwhelmed already. which makes me more distracted and less sure of what to do.
ah, the vicious circle starts turning once more…

a few days ago, after walking in to the lounge to show my boyfriend the hat that i’d just finished making, my boyfriend shook his head and remarked that i had been born in the wrong country.
he has a point: my temperament is much more suited to a colder climate, i think. more woolen knits and beer by the fire, less bikinis and cocktails by the pool.
apparently these pictures were taken on a ‘bleak and grey winter day’. perhaps some people will look at them and think they look cold or dreary or depressing. but to me they look perfect.

now that i have more than a quarter of a million followers on pinterest (yeah, WTF?! it’s ridiculous), whenever i pin a picture that is even vaguely controversial it usually provokes ‘hilariously‘ insightful comments like these, these and these.
honestly; i know that pinterest is now third only to facebook and tumblr as far as time-wasting goes (pub fact; can’t remember where i read that), but who are these people?!!
quite why they think that i (or anyone else) wants to read their ‘ugly as sin’ / ‘someone give this girl a hamburger’ / ‘gayer than gay’ style comments is beyond me.
anyway; rant over. (again).
let’s look at these lovely clothes instead, shall we?

WHY THE FUCK DO WE NOT HAVE H&M IN AUSTRALIA?!!
insanely jealous of anyone who manages to nab any of the above marni at h&m pieces, especially one of these, or this, or this. or any of it, really. especially the jewellery.
jealous, jealous, jealous!!
full collection (and ridiculously cheap prices here), via thunder in our hearts. there is SO much thunder in my heart right now, i tell you. JEALOUS thunder. i think a part of me is dying…
i have recently started running.
i can’t run very far, or very fast, but it’s a start.
some days i love it. some days i want to die. some days – most days – my knees kill me, and some days i wonder if i’ll ever be able to run for more than a few minutes at a time without needing to stop and walk for a bit.
but i can feel myself getting a little stronger everyday. and that’s a nice feeling.
still waiting for the fabled ‘runner’s high’, though…
