i'm new, [31 May 2007|09:01pm]

Hey, I'm new here. This place seems like such a great idea. It's a shame it seems to be a bit abandoned at the moment. I would love to get it going again but don't really know how.

I am bare feet and dances; songs sung at the top of your lungs; black and white photos filled with memories. I'm odd and chaotic and spend too much time on my own. I have a best friend and soul mate and together we are stargirls.

I turned nineteen not long ago but I don't feel any different. I like to think of myself as special but I'm probably just the same as everyone else.

I live in London but long to move to Paris. People don't push you out of the way on the pavement to get past there, it seems. I don't just want to be another face in the crowd but I don't want to fight to be recognised either. I'd like to make a difference to someone's day just by smiling at them on the train or by sharing a book.

I'm a terrible internet girl and sometimes wish I wasn't. I can't quite decide whether I love or loathe it. You can find my myspace here and I have a website but it's terribly new and empty; here.

I have a tendency to combine the good and the bad, the pretty and the ugly, the peaceful and the outrageous. I love opposites and extremes. I find inspiration in the beauty around us (be it laughter, children, freshly cut grass, my best friends eyelashes, a phonecall out of the blue) as well as the bad. I feel trapped in my own skin watching things such as poverty and war holding back the tools my body has to offer.

Jesus inspires me. What he said and did. The beauty of his character. I believe anyone can learn from him whether they believe in his story or not. I quite like being flawed though.

I read a lot. I read too fast, if that's possible. I write, I read, I run, I dance, oh yes I dance a lot. I sing, laugh, cry, worship. I'm just like everyone else and I can't quite work out just what that is.

This is both a self portrait & I suppose my entry and my photo is all a sample of me and I am a sample of my work;

"There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so."

I must admit, I don't understand the ending of the film at all.
Granted, they lost memories of good times,
but to go back to it, knowing it would probably end again?

Am I just too cynical?

What do you think of it?

je vais prendre ta douleur. [01 Jul 2006|01:24pm]


do you ever just feel like you are in the complete right place at the right time?
like you're supposed to be there?

last night driving home from cafe coco at 4:30 in the morning,
i felt that feeling.
complete comfort in anything i've done right
and in anything i've done wrong,
because it had brought me to that very moment of completeabsolution.
i knew it had all worked out like it was supposed to.


[25 Jun 2006|02:51am]



baby, I want you to stop worrying about where to take me
I want you to stop thinking and let the wind take you

let it hold you & pull you
when I say live, 
I mean let;

Summer is here
are you?

tiny specks [20 Jun 2006|10:55pm]

(I don't see anyone posting writings and it saddens me)

the moon is retreats into the sun
but gets caught up in the east
and still gets no sleep.
we stayed up all night together
in our fun filled adventures
we pretended not to care anymore
i told him that we should care
love is all we have in the world
besides all of the objects we can afford.

by the time i fell asleep
all of my dreams were of space
a tiny speck of a star.
along on a timeline
i'm lost between two bullets
and my whole indentity felt stolen.
even though i slept
my dreams were never of peace
we were kneeling at some king's feet.

we are building a religion. a limited addition. [19 Jun 2006|09:23pm]


i know how she feels.
but everyday, i wish for it anyway.
this wish will never come true.
my dad will pass before he gets the chance to walk me down the aisle.

what's one wish you have that will never come true?

can you admit it?
