(but probably just a bit of an idiot.)
Student living on the outskirts of London. Tumblr is like my extended journal. I use it to post about things that I like: travel, TV, film, music, beautiful women and feminism.
I also post personal stuff (because isn't that what the internet is for now?) to make sense of life. So this might be pretty dull. soz.
C'est la vie.
Drugs = bad, basically. I’d never really seen the effects of drugs until I got to uni in September and quite frankly, it scared me. One of the things my mum credits me for is that I am sensible and have a good sense of right and wrong; I also want to be a good role model for my little sis. Even when I was drunk and offered a spliff, I said no (this probably has something to do with the fact I’ve had/still can have lung problems and have also had to help a friend get over hard drugs when we were younger…). To be honest, people can do whatever they want and for the most part, I don’t care (except when it is people close to me because obviously they mean a lot to me). I know this probably makes me sound as dull as shitty water, but I’ve gotten over that now. There are far more interesting things to do and spend your money on than drugs.
Alcohol… well, as a uni student, I drink a lot of it. I was a safe drinker before uni and had only ever thrown up once when I was 17 onto my friend’s washing machine. That’s changed now and I’ll quite happily keep drinking until I chunder. At least I don’t plaster this all over my facebook like a cool dude though.
is the most fantastic radio station.
There’s something about “the sound of the 80s” that I love so much, more than the stereotypically lovelier 60s and 70s.
I don’t understand it when people say they wish they were born in a certain decade. I mean, if you love 70s music so much, wouldn’t it have been better if you were born in the mid 50s, so you had a better appreciation of it? And even then, you might have been a different person and liked other music better. Or maybe I’m just reading too much into it.
Another thing which irritates me is when someone says “older music is so much better than modern music”. How is it? I’ve heard a few different answers, but not one that really makes any sort of sense. Music is personal; if you prefer older music, well then that’s your preference, your opinion. Personally, I love discovering new music, but that’s not to say I don’t still appreciate music from 30 years ago. And also, modern music isn’t all the same and ‘unoriginal’. Music is ever evolving and changing and just because it’s current, that doesn’t mean it’s rubbish because it’s been done before.
Basically, I agree with Ezra Koenig in this video and that’s about it.
