I think I can, I think I can.

I have realised lately, that in the spare of the moment I can never think of anything good to say. I have a late reaction to situations and conversations, and hours later I think up all these intelligent ways of improving the outcome. It's quite frustrating really, because then I try to discretely bring up the topic again, just so I can get the few things I want to say out of my system.

I would really like it, if just this once, things worked out.

My hopes are so high.
Please, don't let me down.

You lay waste to the world and everything in it.

If you haven't seen the British television show 'Skins' then you are missing out.
Even more if you have not seen season one and two.
There is a character. Cassie Ainsworth.
Something about her amazes me.
She always uses words like 'lovely' and 'wow'
And she looks at everything so differently to anyone I have ever seen before.
She is nothing short of messed up. She suffers from both anorexia and depression.

But she always seems so elated.

"Talking of love, wow, I love love. Love is like your best friend that you don’t see a lot."
"Oh wow... but, fuck you"
"I like reading really big books with big words. And holding the book up to my face so that no one can see me. And then taking it down again, so that everyone can."
"But I like that you're funny looking. It's cute, like, wow."
"And he squashed my slug. My slug called Sidley, so I threw him out."

I like her clothes, because her style is incomparable.
I like her personality, because she is so dissimilar.

Simplement parce que je m'ennuie

I have decided to take my blog in a new direction.
I have spent days pondering over what my blog could consist of.
And all I came up with was a wonderful idea of sharing life experiences.
But I then realised, my life is not really that interesting, and it would quickly turn into a not-so-wonderful and mostly mundane retelling of cupcakes I have enjoyed and times I've set the washing machine to the wrong cycle.
So I decided to use my blog as a way to set myself goals.
Yes, that means lists.
And if anything, I am a GOD at writing lists.
And to share with you these lists I am going to construct a mini lists in which my lists will be listed.
List does not sound like a word anymore...
Anyway, I am writing this MAIN LIST (when I was reading over this, I could have sworn it said man list) mostly to remind myself that there are actually things I want to do, and if at a later date I decided I cannot be bothered, well... It's my blog. I can do what I want. BAZINGA!

Every month I make myself a mixed CD. I'm going to start sharing the playlists of these CDS with you. Although I am yet to think of a witty name for these playlists... But I will worry about that lately.

A Bucket List.
Everyone's doing it, so why not?
Within this I would also like to include a '40 Things To Do Before I'm 40' list.
I think it would be interesting to actually see if I can do these things. No pressure or anything.

Weekly/Fortnight lists of goals. Things I need or want to do.
Especially those things I sit around thinking about doing, but never actually doing them.

I will leave my lists at that, as 3 is my second favourite number, and I can't think of 6 different lists of things I would like to write.

Au revoir
