Spikes and Life
Sunday, February 24, 2013
I love this top from ASOS, nothing makes you feel more rebel than some spikes. Rawr. Please excuse the pesky label making an appearance, boo hiss.
I apologise for the distinct lack of everything (other than drunken tweets), the past month has been a mix of sorrowful shit smears (metaphorical) and being on such a high that it feels like I could eat stars. J and I mutually agreed to call quits on our 5 and a half year relationship and I've moved back to my Dad's house, back into the bedroom I spent all of my life and sometimes it feels like the past 5 and a half years didn't even happen. I don't have anything bad to say about J, what's been said has been said and what has been done has been done. We're remaining good friends and I find comfort in the fact that we will be much more sterling as friends than what we were as a couple and I know one day we'll look back on the fiery times and roll around laughing. I'm SO thankful for the solid network of utterly fantastic friends who have plied me with wine during the dark times, who were on the end of the phone when I needed to cry and put me back on the road when I felt like I couldn't move forward.
As I approach my 26th (!!) birthday this Thursday, I am so excited and optimistic about the future - the world really is my oyster and I'm going to grab it by the balls. Life is most definitely not a dress rehearsal, you only get one shot so I'm going to make the most of everything, say yes to everything and have a lot of fun while I'm at it! Life really is too short!
A lot of my stuff is still at my old house, including my computer so blogging will still be ludicrously sporadic but I've had a lot of time to think about the direction I wish to take this so it may take a while, but watch this space...
