Running away with someone, or alone, either way just running away for a day to somewhere more interesting than boring ol' brisbane


Just floating

Or Miss Unfit.. Either works. I joined a local touch footy team with some mates a few weeks ago and we had our first game last night. Turns out that a minimum of 3 girls must be on the field at all times.. and we have 3 girls (including myself) in the team. So therefore we could not sub at any point throughout the game causing someone extremely unfit like myself to basically be doubled over panting, possibly dieing a slow sweaty death in the middle of the field. We also versed huge fobs which increased our possibility of winning siginifcantly... Anyway so after we lost that game epically we had a couple minute break then had to play again (which we also lost) so basically my legs/arms/body in general is aching insanely and I have come to the conclusion that I need to up my fitness but before that.. just sleep. For a long, long time.

music for the lonely

Here is my playlist for whoever else is reading this blog thinking "I wish I had a life":

1. Flightless Bird, American Mouth- Iron & Wine (I loved the song before it was on Twilight! In case you were wondering..)
2. Sunny Afternoon- The Kinks
3. Love Letter to Japan- The Bird and The Bee
4. Far Away- Best Coast
5. Dust in the Wind- Cat Stevens
6. Like Maybe- Kate Nash
7. Slow Life- Grizzly Bear
8. No ones gonna love you- Band of Horses
9. Screaming Infidelities- Dashboard Confessional
10. Balloon- Sarah Haze
11. Sleeping In- The Postal Service (wow I started clapping along to this one just then.. by myself.. home alone. Yep good stuff)
12. Hot In Here- Nelly (this is when you shake off all that acoustic and shake your booty to some old school 90's shit pop music!)
13. Kick Push- Lupe Fiasco (catchy as shit)
14. No Surprises- Radiohead (appropriate for the closing song)


I'm currently home alone, over heating due to no air con in my household and no pool in my backyard, feeling pretty lonely and gloomy. I feel like no matter how hard I work at school, or at the cafe, or on this blog even that it's not going far. I just want to go somewhere and live a little dangerously, and a little insensibly and definitely unexpectedly. I'm so tired of the same old every morning and night. It's a terrible time at this age because you have these urges to escape order but you can't truly act on them and instead only think, dream and if you're like me- blog about it. If I was free to do whatever I want right now I think I'd just jump on the ferry and head over to Moreton or Straddy for the night and have a midnight skinny dip. Yeah.. just realised how sad that image is.. me.. by myself.. on a barge.. when I get off the barge I just casually walk 100m then take my clothes off and have a swim? I think I just need to accept that nothing too crazy or special is going to happen right now and I should just have a cold shower. geh

summer is..

Denim shorts, skating, biking, swimming, slurping down icypoles, tanning in the yard with holly, cold showers that are actually enjoyable, hose fights, water bomb fights, road trips in the kombi, getting tan, getting burnt, cold drinks at work, christmas, woodford, bliss.


The past week has been ridiculously busy due to a fuckload of assignments and studying for my learners test- which by the way I passed on Monday weow! I've already done an hour or so of driving over the past few days and it's sufficent to say I've had a huge reality check in the "holy shit driving is actually so hard and scary" department. My first time on the roads I nearly swerved into a parked truck which basically gave me nightmares for the next 2 nights.. Anyway- it's good to begin the long process that'll eventually give me a license to drive by myself next year. I hope everyone and especially myself.. gets their shit together in time to hand in all these bloody reports!

lyrics that read like poetry

"The Ice Is Getting Thinner" by Death Cab for Cutie

We're not the same, dear, as we used to be.
The seasons have changed and so have we.
There was little we could say, and even less we could do
To stop the ice from getting thinner under me and you.

We bury our love in the wintery grave
A lump in the snow was all that remained.
But we stayed by its side as the days turned to weeks
And the ice kept getting thinner with every word that we'd speak.

And when spring arrived
We were taken by surprise when the floes under our feet bled into the sea
And nothing was left for you and me.

We're not the same, dear,
And it seems to me
There's nowhere we can go
With nothing underneath.
And it saddens me to say
But we both know, well, it's true
That the ice was getting thinner
Under me and you.
The ice was getting thinner
Under me and you.

Lyrics to me are so important in a song. If I like the sound of a song the first thing I'll do is look up the lyrics. The above lyrics I believe are so beautiful and all lyrics to songs made by Death Cab for Cutie are lovely which is probably why they're one of my favourite bands :)

tattoo browsing

Holly and I spent majority of the weekend browsing photo after photo of tattoos. Unfortunately we choose to do this in the wee hours of the morning so I didn't save many of the photos we found. Here's a couple:
