sorting through memories

April 02, 2014

I had a sort through my drawers last Saturday because I figured if I had clean drawers I had a clean mind, which would help with revision (and it's the best form of procrastination) and I found some hilarious things. There were old One Direction baby pictures from magazines which I saved, not because I loved them because I wasn't really a fan, but because I thought they'd be worth a few bob when they became world wide sensations. If you want them from me, they're in the bin or in a land fill site in good old Yorkshire right now. Don't cry (much)
 Parade were my life, which makes sense because my first ever tweet was me begging my favourite member Jess to follow me. Yay. (She is pretty cool tbf) All my friends went to the Clothes Show with their Textiles class and that meant they got cute bags with Parade on and I was insanely jealous... but I got over it and when they split up in February 2013 I wasn't heartbroken. And I had 5/5 knowing I existed so I had contentment. If only that'd happened for Girls Aloud ey...
 I'm not one of the eight year olds who buys First News I promise... naughty me ripped it out of the newspaper in the school library because it had a Little Mix interview in.... yeah I probably shouldn't have done it but what is a sixteen year old fan girl to do (actually don't answer that, I'm so ashamed)  
 Among old exam papers and Parade pics, there was a Company magazine from all the way back in 2011 - August to be exact! Let me guess why I bought it.... it wasn't because I was obsessed with The Saturdays by any chance? Hahaha
 This was from More magazine! Hell that was a long time ago... it doesn't even exist anymore which is kinda sad because they introduced me to the 'whats in my bag' articles which made me wish I lived in a big city so I could show them my shopping. Which quite often featured spotty dresses and blazers. Not very different to what I buy now actually haha!
 Here are the things I couldn't bear to get rid of... a Cheryl Cole magazine which is super limited edition because everybody threw them out a couple of years back, an article which shows that Girls Aloud back together (oh the feels) along with a signed Parade slip and a The Wanted poster. Yeah, The Wanted - but they're on Vespas which are the second best mode of transport ever bar a Lambretta but that's another story. 
 
What do you find when you sort out your drawers?
