Top ten favourite things of all time

Was reading this post over at Smaggle Style and she asked her readers what there top ten favourite things of all time where and listed her own and it got me thinking about what things I value the most.

So here's my list, in no particular order because it was hard enough deciding on just 10 things.

  • Books / the smell of old books
  • Vanilla perfume
  • Rain
  • Cold winter days
  • Watermelon juice
  • Lucas' papaw ointment - it seriously saves my life and my poor dry lips
  • My key necklace
  • Ted
  • Laughing
  • Indie style
lace love love

ps. some of the things that didn't quite make my list are travelling, photography, cuddles, New York City, dancing, frozen yogurt with mixed berries from Wendy's, sleep, Coca-Cola, cute old couples still in love, good hair days - they can instantly make a day feel better - and Harry Potter (oh wow I kinda cant believe that HP actually didn't make the list, it would definitely come in at number 11).

disregard: lack of attention and due care

I've been really neglectful lately but I finally have a laptop so I should be able to blog a bit more, even if I only have a tenuous internet connection. I think that I have actually missed it.

Life has been pretty crazy lately. I've moved out of home - a huge step for me - and I'm starting as a first year uni student all over again, among other things. I've only done a week of my new course but I'm already in love. It's just so much more enjoyable that my last one - I'm actually learning about things that I want to be learning about.

I don't know if I've said this before but I want to be an editor or anything in the publishing industry really. I've always loved books but it was only last year that I realised that I loved them more than anything. So, in my new course I'm minoring in editing and I had my first class for that last Monday and the lecturer said something that I guess I'd never really realised before - that editors have to be writers as well - Only I'm not really the best writer. I always get total mind blanks and can never thing of anything to write, especially when I'm put on the spot and have to write something immediately in class.

I've always firmly believed the old cliché that to write well you must first write what you know - which I now realise is completely ridiculous considering the amount of fantasy and science fiction that I read. However, I’ve always felt that I never had anything interesting enough to write about, that I wasn’t an interesting enough person, I guess. I’ve always wanted to write, and have always liked it as well – I just want to write, to write anything at all but when I’m writing something I’m always to pre-occupied wondering what other people might think of it to actually focus of the writing much.

I figure that this blog is the perfect place to practice my writing so expect to see many more posts from me (not that they will necessarily be filled with writing about writing or writing at all for that matter, still love the pictures.) I'm also thinking about doing some outfit posts, I've got many new friends at uni whose help I could enlist to take the photos. Also, if I write about it here than I actually have to do it.

Time for me to go to bed, I've got work tomorrow. Night all

To add a library to a house is to give that house a soul.

Happy New Year guys, sorry I haven't posted in ages. I'm presently on a friends computer but as I'm moving to the big bad city for uni in only two short weeks I am really going to need my own computer. So as soon as Apple releases the newest version MacBook Pro I'm snapping one up. (Please, please, PLEASE let it be soon.) And regular posting (not that my posting has ever really been regular, much like my period, sorry, I know TMI) will resume. But in the meantime I leave you with some librarys/bookshelves that I would love to have.

How seriously cool would it be to have this staircase bookcase.

I'm really sorry but I dont have the credits for any of these, I found them stuffed away in a forgotten file on my USB.
