Thank you lovely, I hope so ♥
i’ve accidentally let my shield down and i’m so fucking sad it’s making me panic???? because i don’t want to feel like this, i don’t want it oh my god i can’t breathe, and i don’t know if this is just one of those things that’ll pass really soon or if i’m sinking all the way back down to the bottom and this is the problem with this shield, when i let it down the sudden rush of all these feelings is completely overwhelming
hmmmmmmm this is really difficult ‘cause there are so many good books!!!! i think i’d have to say island by aldous huxley though. it was given to me by my philosophy and ethics teacher after i’d told him about my depression etc. - he wrote in the cover “hope it inspires you as much as it did me!”, and it really did. the ending isn’t exactly happy, but it’s an incredible utopian novel and the island, pala, would be a beautiful place to live and a lovely community to live in.
quote (sorry it’s kind of a long one) -
“‘Is that your bird?’ Will asked.
She shook her head.
'Mynahs are like the electric light,' she said. 'They don't belong to anybody.'
'Why does he say those things?'
'Because somebody taught him,' she answered patiently. What an ass! her tone seemed to imply.
'But why did they teach him those things? Why “Attention”? Why “Here and now”?’
'Well… She searched for the right words in which to explain the self-evident language to this strange imbecile. 'That's what you always forget, isn't it? I mean, you forget to pay attention to what's happening. And that's the same as not being here and now.'”

Today was pretty good. We were quite near the front of the queue (and made friends with a couple of the girls next to us!) so when we got in we were like in the middle of the crowd. The first support act had nearly finished by the time we got in but they seemed good! Then tonight alive were brilliant, I loved it, but the pushing in the crowd was intense, both my feet left the floor at one point and I was totally supported by all the bodies around me haha, and Emily and Emily Mae were feeling too squashed so we got out of the crowd and spent the rest of the gig on the sidelines. All time low were brilliant again, and they got a bunch of people from the crowd on stage for time bomb, my heart broke lmao. But just before the last song em started feeling really sick so we had to rush outside and she started throwing up :(((( we think it was some dodgy sandwiches from costcutter. She keeps saying she ruined the night for us, but she didn’t of course!!!! I wish I could convince her, it’s not her fault she’s sick and we had fun anyway.
I got a tonight alive hat and a comfy atl jumper with a love like war lyrics on the back uvu
I got a blonde wig today which I’m really happy about, ‘cause even if I don’t use it in my cosplay I’ve been meaning to start getting wigs anyway; I wanna try out some new looks.
I’m thinking I could go as Misa Amane though, and I’ve already got clothes that would work, but there’s this one dress I really wanna get from a shop near me that would be perfect as well. So at least I’ve got a plan if I can’t think of anything else to go as.
