It’s not often that I can genuinely say that I am proud of myself, but I am going to say it now; Fuck I am doing well, it’s amazing the amount of change one can make to their life in such a short period of time.
“There’s a pervading sense of loneliness I’ve had since the day I was born. Maybe a lot of other people feel the same way, but I’m not about to run up and down the street asking everybody if they’re as lonely as I am. I’d probably get locked up.”—Thom Yorke, 1995.
AH, thank you! When i go to book stores i just see all them books, on all their shelves and don't know where to begin.
OH, and i'm sorry i didn't reply before. I completely forgot. Tumblr should really notify me.
Well, find a way to bring in ridiculous amounts of mulla to move here. Melbourne is waaiting.
Her name is Chloe but she's more of a childhood friend. I don't keep in contact with her so much these days. As for me, i'm 16 but i choose to ignore that fact. It's just a number. My brain is that of a 67 year old woman. If someone called me an old bat or hag i wouldn't be surprised.
I really love that idea for a sign you are making for your room. You should post an end result.
You’re welcome, but yes, you should definitely most definitely read them!
I read The God of Small Things while travelling around Asia, and no word of a lie when I finished it I sat for a quiet moment pondering it all, turned back to the front and started reading it again. I love the way she writes, a little unconventional, but amazing.
And The Book Theif, ohmygoddddd, wow, it’s ridiculous. I loved every single page. I had to stop reading at one stage because I somewhat predicted future events and was trying to delay their occurance, but yes, do ittttt.
Also that’s ok about the non-replying, Tumblr is a little bit silly when it comes to back and forwards communication, it should just let you continue adding replies but oh well, it’s pretty fantastic in most ways!
You’re only 16?! Aw, little newborn haha, but no, you certainly don’t seem that young at all, though I probably (most definitely) wouldn’t go so far as to call you an old bat or hag lol.
Re: Your compliment of my sign, thank you so much, I shall definitely post a picture of the finished result because, I might be a little bit proud, it’s not often my thoughts come to me so lucid they can be recorded in dot point form.
Oh, and what do you thing of The King of Limbs?!
I’m a little obsessed, took a few listens, but it’s fantastic. In particular, Codex.
“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought, there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.”—Frida Kahlo.
The sign which I am making for the back of my bedroom door (well, its draft) is complete. I am very happy with it.
Concrete lists exponentially increase chances of proposed life/behaviour changes being adhered to, and are much more efficient to floating thoughts which are difficult to re-capture.
The list reads:

Your mind and body are not separate entities, and do not function as such. If one is well, the other is well. You have the ability to ensure that your physical health is maintained, mental health should follow.
Read more; it is healthy to imbibe yourself with thoughts/escape to worlds other than your own.
Live a real life, not just one on the internet.
Humans are preconditioned to opt for instant gratification over long term rewards - override this instinct.
Absorb yourself in projects and pursuits rather than your thoughts. You enjoy creativity, and there is a healthy sense of accomplishment at the completion of such endeavors.
You are you. You don’t have to be like everyone else, so stop comparing yourself to them.
You may be tired, everyone is, but it doesn’t validate sleeping for the majority of the day.
Your diagnosis is not an excuse, so do not use it as one.
You love moving and exercise, which is easy to forget, so remind yourself by ensuring that you do it at least once a day.
