so, it is half term.
this is where i'll explain a little bit about life. life being my life. what? shut up catherine.
I used to live in London. I lived there with my family - both parents, two younger siblings. A dog. Cat. simple, yes?
well, not really. I fell in with what could easily be misinterpreted as a 'bad' crowd. There was a lot of drugs, drink, sex. And yet, they were good people, some of the best i've ever met. They were funny, genuine. I liked spending time with them. what we did was such a small part of the social experience - surely things like alcohol do not define your entire relationship with someone? or not? hm.
yes, so my parents decided they would pull me out of my day school in london and send me to boarding school in Kent. I do understand this - they thought they were looking after me, doing the 'right' thing. I'm 16. they're my parents. But, of course, i didn't see it like this. I was distraught, to be honest.
But the move turned out to be alright. I left an awful lot of drama behind me in london. A lot of ex boyfriends, ex best friends, etc. A lot of fights, a lot of misplaced anger and dislike. naturally i left a lot of people who meant a lot to me, but then i've already made a lot of new friends. it's an odd situation now, but i suppose in the long run it's a good thing. it will 'broaden my horizons and make me a better, more rounded person', according to my parents. right?

a little while back i went to Reading.. it was a 'good' experience. well, not really - my tent got set on fire and my guitar lost two strings. but i was briefly a Reading legend for 'allowing' my tent to be set alight (i was not entirely sober, if i need make that obvious).
there's not much else to say really.
I suppose in due course i'll write down some stuff about me that i actually think you'll find interesting. hm.
anyways, laters all my millions of fans. i kid.

p.s i haven't done this before, be easy on a total amateur blogger, kay? :D
sweet sixteen and from london.
i like taking photos and music. and sunlight and darkness and skittles and french kissing, and clothes and grass and dancing and ice cream and fairy lights. i like clean white sheets and i like t.s eliot poems. i like the smell of books and the feel of them and what's inside the majority of them. i like something about the majority of people and the majority of them like at least something about me. which isn't that big a deal if you think about it. just a little something. it could be their smell, their hair, the nail varnish they're wearing.
it's late. i should be asleep. but what a waste of life that would be, much as i like sleeping :)
