Lately I've been feeling this overwhelming sense of joy, most likely due to the rapid increase in decent weather around where I live. I think this partly also has to do with the fact that I've had Iggy Pop's "Lust for Life" stuck in my head for days, and this song seems to narrate my every action whilst it's being done. Either way, I've been happier, and that seems to be making me even happier, if that makes any sense.
I can feel summer just around the corner, and I guess in turn, I've been feeling heavenly. Now I don't freeze my ass off when I take smoke breaks, and the warm spring air feels incredible in my charcoal lungs. Music seems to be getting better, and my smile seems to be getting wider. This post was intended to be about a specific topic (although now that I think about it, I can't recall it..), but now I'm just going to blabber on for a bit about every little thing that seems to be on my mind at the moment. I got my permit, so that's cool. Because everything is turning green with the sun's energy, I've been taking a lot of photographs. The ones below are rather amateur iPhone ones, as I couldn't figure out how to upload the other ones I've taken on my school laptop. Either way, enjoy the images that seem to persist ever-so-often in my wandering mind.
|The bench where we cool kids sneak out during lunch to smoke. I think it looked especially lovely today.|
|See what I mean? We're so cool. So deep, giving ourselves cancer.|
|These plants looked particularly lovely all clumped together amongst the dirt and dead leaves.|
|I love taking pictures of things that don't belong to me.. this is some stranger's|
fairy-like front yard near the smoke spot.
|This canoe looked rather out of place surrounded by so many pretty flowers.|
|I tend to spy on other people's properties.|
|My school actually looked nice for just a second (well, the plants did,|
|Oh, lonesome mailbox. How cute you do look.|
So that's what's on my mind. It's a bunch of rambling, and I know I probably said 'lovely' a thousand times more than I should have (I've been watching the UK version of Skins a lot lately, don't judge me for my Cassie love), but like I said, it's just rambling. So enjoy, my lovelies, hopefully I'll be back to better blog posts soon! Until then, enjoy the music that's been on my mind. xox
