Hello.

Damn, it feels weird to be on this site again.

Listen, I know I've taken a six-month hiatus. I know I vanished off the face of the blogosphere without so much as an explanation. Over the past six months I've been thinking up way after way of coming back with a post to apologise and justify my absence, but you know what? I don't need to apologise. I don't need to justify myself to anyone. The truth is plain and simple: I don't enjoy blogging anymore. I guess I outgrew it. It was a massive part of my life when I was 15/16 but I no longer enjoy it the way I once did, and why should I continue doing something I no longer enjoy? I've moved on. Grown up. Evolved. Changed. Humans are in a constant state of change, especially at my age. What worked for me at 16 is not what works for me at four months away from my 18th, and that is in no way a bad thing.

Anyway.

One reason I'm back is that I finally have a couple of post ideas that I want to write and share; no idea…

Introducing a new WIP!! Ft. a snippet, and not much else because I is Secretive about my projects

Even after almost half an hour of world after breath-taking, beautiful, vibrant world materialising around us out of nowhere, this last creation elicits gasps and murmurs and more than one cry of sheer amazement as it takes its final shape. For we are no longer on earth: we are now in space, unconstrained by the laws of gravity, floating weightlessly among millions and millions of stars, planets, nebulae, galaxies of all shapes and sizes and colours, all of them spinning and revolving around us in a massive celestial dance – a dance that we are a part of.

Of all the worlds I create on the first night of the Sojourn, this is my very favourite.

The universe whirls around us in all its bright, shimmering, multicoloured glory, and I allow myself to lose myself to it, letting myself float onto my back and drinking in the sight, following the progress of a red- and orange-tinged spiral galaxy as it flies past above me and the progress of…

flying // short story

You’ve always wanted to escape your everyday life.

Admit it. You go from one day to the next, through the motions of your life, working, talking, laughing, sleeping, living, but every now and then, every once in a while, in those small rare moments when life comes to a halt and silence falls and your mind wanders, you catch yourself staring out of the window at the iron-coloured, overcast sky, and dreaming of something different. Something new. Something other.

You dream…

Of warm sunlight on your skin. Of air rushing against your face. Of a turquoise, diamond-tipped sea spread underneath your feet and an endless sapphire sky above you as you fly. You dream of flying. You dream of weightlessness. You dream of a euphoric, soaring rebellion.

You dream of freedom.

What if your dreams could become a reality? What if you could actually make it there, to that open sky, to that beautiful sparkling sea of your fantasies?

What if I told you that you could truly fly?

You wouldn’t believe me, of …

Life changes, amazing holidays, great new friends and plenty of obsessions (c'mon, this is me we're talking about) -- a look back on my 2018

*Jumps into view amid a shower of confetti* Greetings, fellow Earthlings!!

I know I'm pretty late, but I just wanted to say I hope you all had an amazing Christmas!! And if you don't celebrate Christmas, then I hope you're having an awesome holiday season!! *throws more confetti*

So because the year is coming to a close (2019 is two days away HELP HELP ABORT MISSION ABORT ABORT I'M SORRY BUT WHO AUTHORISED THIS THIS ISN'T FAIR) I'm going to be looking back on the highlights of the year! 2018 was pretty crazy for me, with a LOT of change going on in my life, but it was actually a pretty good year for me now I look back on it, and I want to share the most significant moments of it with you guys!

Some of these are huge, important things that happened in my life; others may seem pretty insignificant to anyone who's not me, but that still impacted my life in meaningful ways. So anyway, let's get going!




In chronological order: 

- I turned sixteen! My birthday.…

SNIPPETS!! i.e. a post where I throw a load of snippets from my current WIP at you and then run before anyone can come after me

So I am in fact not dead and actually alive!! Wow! Who'd have thought it!! I guess miracles really do happen

Let's just ignore the fact that I haven't posted anything on here in like a month and that I don't have enough time to plan out and write a proper blog post anymore so I'm just going to lump together a bunch of snippets from my current WIP, throw them at you, and run like hell before you all come chasing after me demanding to know why I haven't posted in so long, enjoy kids

First things first, I created a Pinterest mood board for my WIP! I'm pretty proud of it if I do say so myself, check it out here (also maybe follow me on Pinterest if you haven't already? I mainly save memes and shit on there but I do occasionally create something vaguely aesthetic, so idk).

Also, just wanna say that I'm wayy more active on Instagram these days than I am on my blog (well, duh, I haven't posted anything here in aeons), so you should check it out! It'…

"The Ones Who Change The World" // A thing that is meant to be a persuasive speech but is more like the ramblings of a lunatic (or a dreamer)

So I wrote this Thing for my English language class at school - it's meant to be a persuasive speech. I was going to do a different topic to this, I'd made a plan for it in school with the different techniques I'd use and everything, but when I sat down to actually write it I realised that I didn't actually have much to say about my first topic (I'm not really as passionate about it as I first thought), and I was really inspired to write something on this other topic. So me being the maverick I am, I scrapped my first topic and all the planning I'd made for it, and jumped straight into this new one.

I... can't even say how much I loved writing this. I loved it so much. It's an idea that's been going round my head for a while now, and actually putting into words, actually turning it into something that I can share with the rest of the world, meant so much to me. I just sat down and let the words flow and it was the best feeling.
I'm going to have…

The Bibliophile Sweater Tag!! ft. a lot of rambling and shrieking and unleashing my inner fangirl (I mean this is the quality content you guys follow me for, right)

Hey peoples!!

I is back, and I is back with a tag!! Exciting, right?? Everyone, let's cheer!!

Me: *cheers*

Everyone else: *doesn't cheer* *stares silently* *thinks "what is wrong with this child"*

Okay, okay, FINE. Be like that. So anyway, I decided to very sneakily and schemingly (that's a real word, hush child) steal the Bibliophile Sweater Tag from Gray Marie @ Writing Is Life! I mean, she did say that she tagged anyone who liked sweaters or autumn, and I like both things, so... I didn't steal it, per se... look I want to feel sneaky okay LEAVE ME ALONE

Anyway, without further ado, let's jump right in!

*jumps right in*

Fuzzy Sweater (A book that is the epitome of comfort):



So this is the bit where any normal person would pick a fluffy, sweet, lighthearted novel that makes them feel warm and fuzzy inside, and I pick... a pretty damn dark book about a g…
