a quick one

hello 2017! it’s lovely to meet you. tonight has been wonderful and included blowing party whistles as loud as i can out the car window, finally finishing undertale (wow?!?!?) and stuffing my face with mozzarella sticks.

i am so excited to get to know you. there’s a buzz in my veins that comes with the hope and freshness of a new year and i know this will be a great one.

bring it on.

from this angle, i can’t see any clouds in the sky. this is the first sunny day in a long time, despite the freezing temperatures, and i feel calm. there is no reason to not be. it’s five minutes to eleven and the hands on my clock line up perfectly.

not anymore (time ticks on, does it not?). i made a pile of orange peel on my duvet and my fingers still smell sweet. my christmas break has been truly wonderful for a multitude of reasons, but here are a few highlights:

  1. it was christmas?? name any other day that’s as heartwarming or happy.
  2. my friend and i took the train to the forest with my dog last week. it was one of the best days in a while and i hope i don’t forget it.
  3. i feel re-adjusted. my footing on the world has shifted for the better. take me back to school! i’m so ready.
  4. i visited my godmother yesterday. she has been battling with cancer for a while and is in her last few months. i’m not sure how i feel, but i am sure that she is the strongest, most admirable woman i know. her daughter came to visit and although she doesn’t remember me taking her swimming when she was younger, we had a lot of fun. she’s only six but she is so beautiful. kinda sassy but hilarious. we spent the morning cutting wrapping paper into ‘snow’ and throwing it around like confetti.

recently, i’ve realised how lucky i am. i am so grateful for this little life i am living and i wouldn’t change it for the world (or the moon or the stars or the whole universe).

all the best x
