life's like a box of chocolates

December 20, 2013


Todays post is just me rambling and trying to get my brain sorted. Expect lots of disjointed paragraphs which you may find vaugly entertaining and slightly weird. I kinda wanted to make sure my drafts page was empty before 2014 because I feel like 2014 will be a life changing year for me and I really want to start afresh. Normal posting will resume soon. *pinky promise* So without further ado, a little delve into the mind of Olivia....

I've decided to read a lot more, especially meaty and gritty books which aren't all fluffy and light like my usual reading (which is Company magazine and the TV guide - I recommend What's On TV.) I've chosen to read the book "Girlfriend in a Coma" by Douglas Coupland, which from the blurb seems to be right up my street and one that will leave me with lots of unanswered questions, a great (not so) light relief from coursework and writing essays! It's about a girl is put into a coma to wake up 30 years later trying to live in a world that has moved on. It's sad, but life isn't always one big joke.

I've also chosen to reread the George Orwell classic 1984, which I loved first time round because of all the ideas that in my little opinion tie in so well with the world right now. I mean, even Girls a Aloud had a single kinda centered around it. That isn't the reason I'm reading it. Promise.

I've started creating playlists. Yay. They're just little personal ones with a dozen or so tracks each on them, but they're all centred around a theme so when I'm feeling down, I pick my depressive theme and when I'm happy I pick my happy ones. I also have one named Independence which has tracks like Boy by Little Mix and Ain't No Hat For That by Robin Thicke. There's a little kid right at the beginning who just says in such a cute voice 'ain't no hat fo' thattttt' and he's so cute and aw. The main reason I love that song right there.

You know when you're so stressed out everything becomes funny? At the moment I'm meant to be sat reading books about Russia and Russian people and I usually love reading about it because Russian people were interesting like 100 years ago but I just don't want to read it right now. Hence me writing this now because I'm a proper little procrastinator and if I do this I don't have to do the thing I'm meant to be doing. For tomorrow. Oh I'm stupid.

I've just realised I've got more Bloglovin followers than usual, which is amazing because that means that at least 24 of you are reading this on a regular basis. Hi to my regulars! (I sound like a pub I know) My readers seem to be interested in one topic I write about but then not the next, which is kind of weird because I think seem to write about the same kind of thing all the time and I don't want to get bored myself and I defo don't want you to get bored either. Please tell me in the comments box if I'm boring you and what you like to see me write about etc etc. And then I'll see what I can do. I'll be like Bob the Builder CAN WE FIX IT YES WE CAN kinda thing. Yay.

What kind of things do you find in your 'draft posts' folder? Are they as weird as mine?
 
Love Olivia x
