Because writers can also take photographs

So, I've been playing around with my Dads Nikon D40 and here is a few of the pictures I took. :)

The music is loud
Heavy angry beats that make your brain shake.
Empty bottles, cups and cigarette ash cover every available surface.
Everybody is dancing, laughing, shouting.
Enjoying the moment.
They are happy for now,
But what will the morning bring?


Laugh until it hurts to breathe.
Dance until your feet hurt.
Drink until you can't even remember your own name.
Smoke too many cigarettes.
Spend all of your money on useless items that you don't need.
Love with your whole heart, until every fibre of your being feels it.
Wear your heart on your sleeve
Get hurt, have your heart broken into a thousand tiny pieces. 
Cry until you can't feel the pain anymore.
Make the same mistakes over and over again and never learn from them.
Because you are human.

Heres another poem I wrote today :)


Tuesday, 17 January 2012


It starts with a question.
4 words
Your whole life will change with the answer.
You say yes.
You tell your family and friends
They congratulate you.
Glasses are raised to the happy couple.
Does it matter what they think?
Does your happiness depend on if they think it is right thing to do?

You start to plan your perfect day.
Everything has to be perfect.
Colour schemes are chosen
Flowers. Photographers. Invitations.
The list is endless.

The happy day finally comes around.
You are beautiful in your dress.
He is handsome in his suit.
Family and friends smile as you walk past them.
Then comes another question.

So this is a poem I wrote earlier. Who'd of thought it eh?
little old me can write poetry!

New year, new semester

Hello :)

Well the second semester started again today. First lecture I've had is Poetic Writing. It was the one I was least looking forward to doing. I dislike poetry, I think its a load of pretentious rubbish. Or at least thats what I used to think.
I actually really enjoyed the lecture/workshop today. It surprised me, I was all ready to sit and hate it but my brain decided that I now like poetry. Don't get me wrong, I still think most of it is pretentious nonsense and isn't worth my time, but some of it is pretty good :)

Also it helps that Chloe is in the lecture with me. She always entertains me.
For example today Cat asked what an artichoke was, so Chloe tried to explain what one was. Her explanation consisted of "it's like a pineapple, but a vegetable, a vegetable pineapple!"

Anyway thats all for now,
