don’t you think that its funny how people talk



“Skipping school. No time for yum cha.” Marthe Wiggers by James Nelson for Russh December/January 2014

Recently I have been feeling a vibe that I haven’t really felt or expressed before. I would describe it as peaceful, clean cut and generally minimalist without being harsh or boring. Its kinda normcore, a little bit 90’s varsity; no bright colours or sparkle or clashing prints, only clumpy heeled sandals and socks, denim and mesh and collars. It celebrates bright white and black and nature and fuss free prettiness. The embodiment of this vibe climbs trees and sketches and takes Polaroids in between hanging out in airy city apartments and forests. This is what I have imagined from looking at tumblrs that also embody this aesthetic (check out Dani’s and Sally’s).

Below I am wearing a vintage old ladies shirt, a skirt from a Zara sale than only cost £3.99, my leather backpack from ebay which was one of the best bargains ever- £15 including p&p for a real leather backpack- and my mum’s shoes that I have taken over. I was saving for some Vagabond sandals but then I saw these, from New Look for more than half the price, so hopefully these will be added to my pathetic shoe collection soon..

In the past week I have been having these mock ‘mock’ exams that have taken up most of my weekend and after school time with revision. They don’t go towards anything, but obviously I want to get as high a grade as possible. At the end of this month I will have a 10 hour long (2 full days) art exam, where I will be painting Lana Del Rey in the Pre Raphalite style of John William Waterhouse, one of my favourite artists, and I can’t wait! Aside from Art, though, I am feeling really resentful towards education in general, and this quote by William Upski Wimsatt just sums up why…

“There were no sex classes. No friendship classes. No classes on how to navigate a bureaucracy, build an organization, raise money, create a database, buy a house, love a child, spot a scam, talk someone out of suicide, or figure out what was important to me. Not knowing how to do these things is what messes people up in life, not whether they know algebra or can analyze literature.”
