Daughter. Sister. Friend. Believer. Warrior. Writer. Voracious reader. Shoe Lover. Car Accident Survivor. Quasi philosopher. Prone to circumlocution. Beyonce stan. Retired cynic. On a quest to make a dent in the universe. Impossible to summarise in a few words.
I don't think I've ever published a video blog back to back, so this is a first. This vlog is about a journey I've been on in the last 9 or so months. I have a habit of (over) thinking about topics like failed friendship. Then (over) thinking about the fact I tend to (over) think. This is because, though I didn't openly admit it, I struggled to recover from a few friendships that fell apart. I hated the fact I couldn't dislike them and was angry that I still missed them, though they probably didn't miss me. Out of the abstraction of my feelings to the point of confusion, came this. Considering how complex those friendships were it was a surprisingly simple post.
Fast forward a few months later and I decided to do a video blog on failed friendships with more of a redemptive feel than usual. Hopefully I managed it? I'm not sure, I can't stand to watch my vlog's back, recording them is torturous enough.

A few random things...
I can't stop listening to this 'R&B' artist called Frank Ocean. He's in Odd Future but isn't as dark or beautifully/productively sick as the rest of his crew. If you haven't already you can download his mixtape nostalgia,Ultra here I can't stop playing it. I want to marry his (right) brain.
Two friends of mine are doing EP/album launches. One is on April 6th at Hoxton Bar and Grill, they're a band called Mr Disfit and are kinda like a big deal (you heard it here first). You can buy advanced tickets herefor £5 or it's £9 on the door. The doors open at 7.30.
The second is AKS a very talented young MC who has a formidable work ethic and is very skillful. He's launching his EP at The Queen Hoxton on April 10th. You can buy tickets in advance here for £4. The doors open at 7.
In other news I'm editing a lot at the moment for various projects and this space will be populated with a lot of posts over the next month or so. I'm still trying to deal with my shopping obsession, if any of you have suggestions please do send them my way. It seems that my like/love/lust for shoes, bags and clothes increases every single day.
