My other tumblr!!

Anatomy anatomy anatomy. Probably the most content heavy part of all this :( although drawing my own diagrams is fun.



Why do I keep seeing posts spreading information about the protests in Hong Kong that end in sooooooo US INTERVENTION


Fuck your petition. The worst thing that can happen is the US to come swooping in in a “humanitarian intervention” 



if you can’t beat them, dress better than them




this gets me so hard

apparently this was johnny and winona meeting for the first time since they broke up or something

They fucked that night

The sun is really low in the sky but it’s cloudy and cold and windy so the light is very muted and it’s making my room glow and look super cosy. Also my favourite candle is burning on the windowsill and the bed is unmade and Sam Smith is playing really quietly in the background and I just realised that the moment was worth recording.

was a bit sucky. 

I spent the day with someone I used to look up to so much when I was little and someone I always tried to be like bc like all kids I thought they were the coolest person ever. 

Today was the first time in a few years that I spent time alone with them and even ignoring the obvious things that have happened in that time, they were just…less. They aren’t the way I remembered at all. But even that is a given, because hey people change. But this was different and it made me sad and angry before realising there was nothing I could do. Because the one thing I picked up from spending time with them was that they had no desire to change. Or maybe it’s just me that’s done the changing.

I felt like the biggest party pooper (is there a more serious version of that phrase?) because I was just SO not okay with the things they wanted to at all. Not that I don’t do one of them anyway, but if I were the one spending a day there with this person after like 3 or 4 years, that would be the last thing on my mind. I was disappointed. I understand that in this case the person in question is not well but the way they were today had nothing to do with any kind of sickness. Rude. 

But I guess it still comes down to the fact that there is nothing I or anyone can do if they don’t want to help themselves. So I will keep my distance and let it go. Doesn’t mean I don’t care, but there is nothing I can change. 


In other news, the weather was so gorgeous.

Crossed Out: Read (23/101)

Italicized: Own 

Bold: On my immediate to-read list 

**Edit this to your liking!**


Today was a good day, then a bad day and then a good day 

1/ OOTD for a spontaneous shopping trip. The weather was my favourite- tshirt weather that doesn’t burn or need a jacket :D 

2/ There was a lego station. This reminded me of all the times when I was younger and there were no girls my age to play with in our family friends circles but all the boys had really cool lego sets so I just played with them instead. good times 

3/ Solid Argan oil and coconut hand cream from the body shop! these smell awesome. 

4/ Due to the lovely warm weather, we went swimming! Sooo good to be back in the pool after like six months! What was really embarrassing was that there was a party going on in the hall you have to walk through to get to the pool, and in it was everyone that my parents know and I ran through it with my raggedy swimming clothes and hid in the pool. 

5/ This little booger came over. whatta cutie 

6/ Someone found me on facebook from the time in year 10 when I wrote my email address in his school diary HAHA and it took me so long to recognise him (even though I was considering taking him to formal last year) but that made me happy :) 

good day!
