musings #2

in the past 2 weeks I have: felt relieved that January was over, worked a lot, cried a bit, finally tracked down vegan Ben and Jerry's, done yoga for 12 consecutive days, made a lot of plans, finished 2 books, done a lot of online shopping (and sent a lot of parcels back), started a French class, survived a mob of 20 drunk 16 year olds descending on my house, felt shit and then good and then shit, been to the theatre (to see Ballet Rambert's Ghost Dances–v. good) cooked a lot of new recipes and drank a lot of G&T's.

Its a bright Sunday morning and, despite having work later today and a headache, I have a good feeling about today. Mornings like this are my favourite, when you feel the crisp inklings of Spring. We're going out for brunch this morning for which I am greatly anticipating some pancakes. In this moment, I feel at peace. Its been a challenging few days and I find myself thinking about the future too much but good things are coming.

In the mundane, I am planning to read a lot of books, teach myself some basic Spanish and seek some premeditative therapy because I'm starting to become very, very scared about Oxford and whether I'll cope. I'm also trying to be more conscious about my plastic usage and ethical footprint and its something thats playing on my mind a lot.
In more fun news, the future is -very- exciting and March through to August are going to be pretty fun months. When work is painful I remind myself I couldn't book all the spontaneous planes and trains without those hours of dulness. Planned I have trips to Barcelona, Oxford, Brighton, Suffolk, Paris, Budapest, Corsica and Marrakesh along with tickets to Matthew Bourne's Cinderella and the Guilty Feminist. I'm also hoping to visit some of my friends before easter, if I have any time, because I miss them. Fuck, man. Its gonna be so good. And, whilst my bank balance might be crying, we're still planning another holiday. Oh well–gap yah and all.

I suppose if that mood board is anything to go off, I've been spending my time dreaming of travelling and finding solace in other people feeling as lost and crying as often as me. The musings above are just a few I've found on Pinterest whilst procrastinating–you can find the others here.
I really like making visual boards of the things I've been thinking and feeling and dreaming of over the past few weeks. So sorry there haven't been many photos but idk just not really feeling photography at the moment. Or blogging particularly. But I need to put my thoughts somewhere, update the diary, document the moment. You get the picture

I hope you're all well. I'll be back.


  1. What books have you been reading? I'm determined to read more! Also I need to hunt down the vegan ben & jerry, I'm dairy free and every day and wake up craving ice cream. The future sounds so exciting for you and all the trips you've planned will no doubt be incredible, have to keep us updated on your travels!
