I AM A MAGICAL LIL WEIRD PINEAPPLE (HAHA, AND EVERY SINGLE NEW POST I ADD A NEW ADJECTIVE AFTER PINEAPPLE AHAHHAHA) 😄😂

 

Fact One: I am Psychic.

Seriously. That means I’m some sort of magical entity. A real one.. sometimes I tell people this fact about me and they’re like “WHAT AM I THINKING” and sometimes I get it right but I usually just have to tell them the truth: IT JUST HAPPENS RANDOMLY OKAY BUT WHEN IT DOES OH BOY, THAT IS A SCENE TO CHERISH, BEHOLD ETC. VERY AWESOME VERRY VERRRYYYY OKAY

Fact Two: I’m a bizzare mixture of girly and boyish.

Like, I am so tumblr and aesthetic and pretty girly stuff addicted but then at the same time I’m such a boy!

Like, I don’t know anybody who likes to make pig snorts just for fun. Well, I do actually. They’re boys though so.. I AM HALF BOY!! 👦

Fact Three: Sad, deep songs are what I live for!

Among many things, ofc. Food food foood foood oml food!

But sad are just so good. Especially when you feel down. It’s like you can literally feel all the negative pouring out of you.. it’s so freeing.

Fact Four: I am really wordy

When I am passionate about something or just want to let everything flow, the words will come and come and keep coming. Ever since I was little, I’ve been able to explain myself and that’s so rewarding for me- to know that no matter what happens, there will always be words for how I feel. Maybe they come in the form of a laugh, or tears, but there are always words.

Fact Five: Up until recently, I was never a person who watched series..

What was I doing with my life?! Okay, seriously, what are you doing with you life?! If you haven’t watched the following I will just about die with intense sadness for you: Riverdale, Pretty Little Liars, Atypical and 13 Reasons Why. 

**I nearly said something about Netflix and chill but.. probably safer not to**

Fact 6: I have too many different sides to me

Even I find it hard to believe sometimes. I’m just.. so many people!

Fact 7: I think I’ve found my soulmate..

Yes, that is a real thing.. for anybody who is currently alive, mind you. I’m just lucky.. 😉

Wildfang’s Pin Collection Makes Self Love An Accessory — Tales From The Thrift Shop

Self love is hard. It’s as simple as that. My journey to loving myself has been filled with hills, speed bumps, and open highways in just the past year alone. It can be exhausting. Worth it, but exhausting nonetheless. It doesn’t matter how old I get or where I’m living in the world. Especially with…

via Wildfang’s Pin Collection Makes Self Love An Accessory — Tales From The Thrift Shop

I don’t re-blog much but this post resonated with me- I’d love it if you’d read this! 💖 

It would also be really amazing if you’d check out the collection. You can find the link in the original post. I’m definitely going to be doing some shopping tonight! (OR WAS. EXTREMELY TRIGGERED ATM CAUSE IF YOU’RE ANYWHERE BUT AMERICA YOU HAVE TO PAY 30 BUCKS FOR SHIPPING. I CAN’T EVEN 😭)

It happened to me: I’m a misunderstood blogger. (or witty wordy friend.) Whatever you prefer.. 😱 💔

Image result for gif no way

Why the fluffin’ heck do you bother with a website?

It happened to me. I was sitting there, just a wee little thing, minding my own business and sipping a double triple choc hazeln-

nuh nuh nuh nope. I’m overplaying that.

I’m just facing an existential crisis due to a common thingy that I’m dead sure at least one of you other wee things has experienced in your short life.

Let me just say: I am a blogger!

*all laugh because if that’s not the dumbest most obvious statement ever just shoot me*

But seriously. Put down your fancy shakes and grab something to cuddle. Bring out the secret stash and just-just listen. You’re about to be duly horrified by my next statement. 

*tears up* god have mercy on me PLEASE

😭

tumblr_inline_o1f1myDRAd1rnyyhg_540

This is like post apocalyptic Storytime: One blogger and three words that changed everything and caused said blogger to go into a wordy flurry and rant about godknowswhat.

‘They’re just words.’

No! no, no, no. If I have one purpose on this doomed green and blue planet, it is to assure you that blogging is not just a bunch of words from a too lazy to write on a page kinda person. Blogging is a huge jumbled up story that ends happily, no matter what happens in the beginning or the middle or else. It’s just the way of the world.

Let’s compare shall we?

a) Being a blogger is like being a tightrope walker in your local circus

The whole act depends on you not falling off the damn rope (which is im possible)

Okay, Maryam, shut up. That was funny. Just shut it.

What I mean is that you can do all your fancy tricks and show a bit of sass but when everything is good and done, you need something to show for it.

Your dead body? let’s pass.

b) Like being a chef, cooking all your favourite meals..

*hungry yet? hehe*

You need a bit of everything. The right amounts. Some zest, some good strong flavour. You can experiment a bit, sure, but preferably not with an actual order. Apply that to blogging, just try.

It *helps* a LOT if you are c) part comedian.

And that is the formula, dear children.

Wit, humour and balance.

Image result for do you get it gif                                                                              ^ I shall caption this ‘100% of WordPress’ ^

 Just a bit of forewarning.. sometimes my English teacher tells me to sum something up. Next century comes (and goes) and she’s like gurl whut that was good but whut

*aka. I’m better at ranting than you so huuuh*

What this gobbledegook means: 

To me blogging is about getting my thoughts and words out and that’s how they become so much more.. with just the right amount of love, care, thought and wit. Honestly, half of what I say won’t make sense at all, to anybody, but that’s sort of the beauty. Being able to form your own opinion of something and just taking what you will from it. That’s what I love about blogging and why I’ll use that title- I’m part of a supportive community of the most lovely crazies you’ll ever meet. Crazy passionate!

This is my creative outlet. I’m free to just be myself and that’s such a positive thing- can you relate to this post?

15/8/17 (‘: (Weekly Inspiration)

Wow.

Wow, Maryam. 

It only took you a whole damn year to post this (not really but pretty much). How slack have I been? Gosh, my apologies you lot! This is much awaited, but it’ll be good. Today I’m going to inspire you to embrace your natural bodily functions with an um, INSPIRING video.

Trust me, whether you can relate or not, this one is a barrel of laughs.

(To watch, not experience.. 😂) Enjoy x

Give me an ‘S’, give me a ‘U’, okay, alright. Hello Sunshine blogger award..🌞🔥

Deary me.

Lily, I think you’ve set me on fire.

Image result for gif im burning

I have one question for you: Does the ‘stop, drop and roll’ method do any justice to a rapidly burning smol bean?

Science says yes but my gut says no.

Now, before you go saying anything you’ll regret, please note down the following facts on the anatomy of me, myself and I:

There’s a part of my brain wired specifically to *entertain* others.

And by entertain, I mean, leave one wondering where the fluffing heck lost time goes, cause soz, no reimbursements.

You just gotta listen. 

It took guts to admit that.

That means I’m gutsy.

Gutsiness is a trademark feature of moi.

Do you get what I did there?

I guess I should thank you, dear Lily.

You’ve set me on non-literal utterly positively lit fire.

This is my *gasp* second *gasp* award of the week.

I am honoured, and think you’re pretty damn good yourself, ya know. Just puttin’ that out there in the big wide world, cause everyone should know.

RULES
  • 1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  • 2. Answer the 11 questions they’ve given you.
  • 3. Nominate 11 people
  • 4. Give 11 questions for the people you nominated

 

My heart is truly blessed 💞

1. Favourite song? 

I am afraid that I literally cannot answer this question without well, not answering the question. And uh, that’s exactly what I’m going to do.

Hehe.

I love all of Julia Micheals’ songs at the moment yet I’m sort of having a reunion with Ed Sheeran songs. You know, in the sense that they would play non-stop until I took a hiatus (fancy vocab, yup yup.) and got addicted to new songs etc ect, until I got hit by a wave of srsly overpowering  Ed Sheeran song nostalgia. The fuzzy painful type.

But then again, there’s always Melanie Martinez.. and a couple of hundred others.

 2.What movie could you watch over and over again and not get tired of?

I don’t even need to think about that! Massive YASS to questions where I don’t have to dig into the depths of my unfortunate persona. YASS.

One word: *three* ‘The Little Prince.’

Potentially the best, most thought evoking movie I’ve ever watched. The story revolves around a little girl living in a seriously adult world, devoid of all childish fun and lightness. She is the victim of a heinous crime: theft of childhood. Thief? Dear old mum. Dad is as good as dead. But then she meets somebody.. somebody who changes her life for the better and shows her what it means to truly live.

3. Dream Job?

My  Dream job is to be an industrial designer. This has been my answer for a long time now and it simply hasn’t changed because life goals! I’m a very creative minded person and design is something I really enjoy. If I can take my passion and work magic, then that I’ll do!

Image result for build gif

   4. Do you want kids? 

Well, damn honey, that’s a fluffing scary question. 👶

Definitely, yes. Maybe two girls and a boy, or just a boy and a girl? That’s for a later decision though! I remember this time when I was younger and my mum was talking about how painful childbirth is (she’s right buuuut) and I was like, nope. I just won’t have kids.. But of course, I caved in!

*yeah that’s me.. elaborates way too much for comfort*

5. What are some baby names you like/might use? No specifics as of yet, but I want my offspring to be uniquely named. I want them to stand out and you know, they say names resonate. Nothing weird, of course, but just a beautiful, strong name.

6. Favourite year of school? Favourite year of school… I’d say this year (8), to be honest. I’m content with myself and my achievements and am just in a good place right now. Everything is going well and I’m going to hold onto that for as long as possible. *wink wink*

7.  Any bad experiences in school? 

Unfortunately, yes. I’ve had bad experiences all through school with bullying, too much homework *chorus of yawns* and just encounters with the wrong people. I tend to, for whatever reason, gravitate towards the more troubled kids. It’s an unconscious sort of habit and it has not served me well in any case!

*Blood, sweat and tears have been shed*

8. Favourite band/singer?

*chucks hands up in defeat* must I?

Surely, Lily, you would know that this is torturous. I can’t, I just C A N N O T.

  Fine, I’ll stop avoiding the question. Uhhh, maybe the Chainsmokers? OF MANY. OF MANy ok

9. Ever done something illegal?

Oh god. It’s like you already know. *guilty face*

The truth is: I AM GUILTY GUILTY, GUILTY OF THE CRIME

Just kidding.. maybe. I definitely have some dating/relationship regrets and uh, dark web encounters. I was really into that sort of stuff last year actually. I downloaded something called a Tor (onion) browser which was basically a little portal into that damned world of utter darkness. On there I found a range of disturbing materials, and once, in a moment of complete and utter shock, sent something illegal to somebody.

there you go, all ma juicy secrets *cries self to sleep*

10. Dating anyone at the moment or have your eye on someone? 😉

Yes, I’m dating somebody at the moment. What can I say, I’m a lucky girl.. and so is she. 💗🏳️‍🌈

*waits for you guys to get it*

I’ve struggled somewhat to come to terms with my sexuality, but of all relationships, this feels right when nothing else has. I’ve made a promise to myself, this time, that I can love whoever I want, no matter the gender.

*HAHAHAHA*

Now who shall I nominate?

1. Universe Of The Unspoken

2. Ups and Downs

3. Just a Blank Space

4. All I know is Grace

5. Brooke Jade

6. Tales from the Thrift Shop

7. Free Perspectives

8. crystalsandcurls

9. toomuchofabooknerd

10. meganvlow

11. EnniMorgan

  1. If you had to make a time capsule, what would you put in it and when would you decide to open it?

2. What is your favourite thing about yourself?

3. When you get old, what kind of stories can you imagine telling your future generations?

4. You have one word to describe yourself. What would it be?

5. What weird food combinations do you enjoy? (Mmm.. peanut butter and nutella cheese flavoured crackers.. not as gross as it sounds).

6. What social stigma does society need to let go of?

7. Any favourite emojis?

8. What “old person” things do you do? If any..

9. Imagine if you had suddenly discovered that one of your *fictional* or real, up to you, siblings had been cloned. What would you do?

10. What’s your cure for hiccups?

11. Name one thing about you that makes you unique. Other than DNA!

That’s all folks..!

As usual, your choice completely, but these posts are super fun to do so.. just saying (;

    • Answer the 11 questions they gave you.
    • Nominate 11 blogs and let them know they’ve been tagged.
    • Give them 11 questions to answer.

 

Dreams really do come true. Bring the questions on! 🎆

 

  1. What is one word in another language that you adore? I love the Dutch word ‘Voorpret’. It just seems to roll of my tongue and actually sounds beautiful! Plus, the definition is the bomb.

(n) pre-fun, the sense of enjoyment felt before a party or event takes place.

2. If you could select one landmark I don’t know if that’s the right word for it, but I mean like literally any building, or house or garden you’ve stumbled across and thought ooh if only I lived near it and move it to your town, which one would it be? What a hard question to answer! This world is so full of beauty that it makes it near impossible to choose, but for now I’ll settle with one of those little old city terrace houses. You know, with the ornate details and pastel colours and flowerbeds + ivy coloured windows.

That will definitely be my dream home when I get older! Flashy isn’t always best.

3. If you could play any instrument, which would you choose? I would choose to play the Harp. It’s such a grand instrument and isn’t *extremely* common either, so win-win

4. What fictional book, movie, tv show world that we become helplessly addicted to do you want to be apart of? Oooh, an easy one! Haha. At the moment, I’m sort of binge watching Pretty Little Liars, and it seems like quite a cool world to be in (even though I’m only up to Season 1, Episode 9/10?) with all the mystery and twists and turns.

5. What’s your favourite flower? Oh, definitely roses! They’re common, yes, but they’re still so delicate and gorgeous. I’d love to have a rose garden when I grow up. I’d fill it with a diverse range of coloured roses, at least the ones I know of- Yellow, yellow and pink, and yes, red roses.

6. Would you choose immortality? I think, at first glance, most answers to this question would be yes- but then you think. To be immortal, to never die.. Is that really what you would want? I mean, nobody wants to think of dying, and it is a blessing that it will one day come as a sick surprise instead of something hanging over our heads like a bad smells.. For one, you’d see everyone else leave, and die, and hurt and love and cry. You’d witness it all. And you’d still age- you wouldn’t die, just age.. and at some point, you’ll just want it to stop. You’ll want to block it all out. And those scary things that you hear about, the ones that people say you don’t have to worry about because you’ll die long before? Well, that doesn’t exactly apply, does it? Live a long and happy life, or never ever let go? Immortality probably isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

7. If you were to leave a legacy behind, what would yours be? aside from being a kick ass blogger.  

I would want my legacy to be built up on something small I did for as many people as possible, hopefully something that could carry on and be of service to as many as possible. I would want to be remembered for something like a skill I taught somebody or assistance of some sort.

8. Current song obsession..

Ahh, probably Julia Micheals. She’s fairly new and not exactly huge in the music industry, but she’s going big places. Her music is really mature and focuses on both sides of relationships, which I think is integral. Nothing is black and white. A close second to Julia would probably be Amy Shark, who’s got a very unique musical sense that I quite appreciate.

9. Something you should never try is… WASABI PEAS. Trust me, I learnt this the wrong way!

10. What is your dream car? Oh, fun! Probably a Lamborghini. That’s what I’d consider a really sporty/ sexy sort of car. There we go, I’m objectifying an inanimate object again xD

And.. LAST QUESTION!

11. Who are the people you look up to in the blogging world? Cause come on, let’s spread some love!

Literally, what I can say?!- everybody. Blogging is such a journey- you choose what to share and you build up an image based on what you are and aren’t proud of and you shape yourself into this new person, and sometimes you just fall back into old ways or stay the safe. Maybe you try and fit into a box that’s just too small to hold each beautiful part of you, and it takes courage, you know, to know you’re enough and to get those words out and just embrace everything you are.

Beautiful People: August 2017 Edition! (:

Welcome back you beautiful people you!

Today I’ll be answering some questions on a character from the novel I’m currently reading (The Flywheel). This is a blog meme hosted by:

Sky @ http://www.furtherupfurtherin.net and Cait @ http://paperfury.com/

PAPER FURY

This will be my first time doing this challenge, and I’m pretty excited to get to know my characters better, and to be able to share this with all of you. If you’re interested in joining, please do, it’s never too late. For more information, visit the websites above, and let’s get into this post!

 

      But first, just so you're on the same page..
      
"Seventeen-year-old Delilah's crazy life is about to get crazier. 
Ever since her father took of overseas, she's been struggling to run the family's cafe without him AND survive High School.
But, after a misjudged crush on one of the cool girls, Del has become the school punchline. 
With all that's on her plate, she barely has time for her favourite distraction- spying on the beautiful Rosa, who dances flamenco at the tapas bar across the road.

All this leaves Del grappling with some seriously curly questions. Is it okay to break the law to help a friend? How can a girl tell another girl she likes her without it
ending in humiliation and heartbreak?
And-the big one- is it ever truly possible to dance in public without falling over? 

Image result for the flywheel tumblr

 10928109_595959117172101_1450331761_n

QUESTIONS.. 😂

  1. What are they addicted to/can’t live without? 
  2. Name 3 positive and 3 negative qualities about your character.
  3. Are they holding onto something they should get rid of?
  4. If 10 is completely organized and 1 is completely messy, where do they fall on the scale?
  5. What most frustrates them about the world they live in?
  6. How would they dress for a night out? How would they dress for a night in?
  7. How many shoes do they own, and what kind?
  8. Do they have any pets? What pet do they WISH they had?
  9. Is there something or someone that they resent? Why and what happened?
  10. What’s usually in their fridge or pantry?

 

     Answers.. 😏

1- Delilah is head over heels in love with Rosa, the impossibly gorgeous flamenco dancer from the bar  across the road. She can’t live without her, but she hasn’t yet mustered up the courage to admit her feelings, so settles with just watching her dance from across the street.

2- Positive- Feisty, brave and a real fixer upper.

Negative- Doesn’t always admit it when she needs help, ignores her feelings, puts things off until she finds herself in real trouble.

3- Yes, Del is running the family cafe while her father is off holidaying in god knows where. Del lies to him and he believes her when she says that she is just fine and running the cafe on weekends. However, this is not the case as Del had fired the ex manager of the cafe earlier. When she is told that the Flywheel has no money left, less than none, in fact, she holds off closing it down immediately, even when she is warned to do so immediately or lose her flat too.

4- Probably a five. Delilah is messy, but in a ‘I couldn’t take care of myself if you paid me let alone a damn cafe but I’ll try anyway sort of way’ haha!

5- Del is most frustrated by the way the cafe is going in terms of business as well as the imminent closure and lack of  business. Her parents, most specifically her mother, who,  in a moment of middle aged passion (TOTALLY NOT MY WORDS) ran off with another man and started getting it up ETC ETC. *AHEM TMI* excuse me kids (;

6- Del doesn’t really do fancy, at all. Ever. Not even when she goes on a sort-of but not really date to the Tapas bar where the impossibly gorgeous Rosa works. She just wishes she did! (Fat load of good that does, but who am I to judge? ;D)

7- How many shoes does Del own? *Thinks and thinks and thinks*

*10 minutes later* That wasn’t REALLY talked about, so I’m assuming sneakers and, well, school shoes again. No expectations and you can’t be dissapointed!

8- Del has no pets, and that’s a damn good thing because she’d probably kill them               accidentally.

(She’s a good girl but how much responsibility can one person handle!? I can definitely see her as a dog person though.)

9- Del resents her mother as she left her and her father by themselves for most of her childhood while she was off having fun with another man but then came back and tried to act all motherly as if she still played a role in their lives.

10- There wasn’t much on Del’s home life in the book, let alone what’s in her fridge, but at the cafe they made lots of sandwiches so yep. *realises how weird this sounds*

Yeah, lots of bread and fillings.. and oh oh! Pizza, lots and lots of that yummy goodness. Wine too, cause there’s nothing better than being drunk off your head.

10 things that make me happy..

Hey guys!

I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend, and are enjoying your Saturday (lucky, lucky you!) or Sunday.. *cough cough last day of freedom* :p

Random fact, but my pencil case actually reads “I wish there was an extra day between Saturday and Sunday”. Mhm, yes. YES YES YES. Long weekends are the bomb.

Anyway, let’s get right into this post!

1. New books!

Come on, you’ve got to admit, it’s an exciting prospect. It’s not uncommon to find me going through books like my mum would tea (read; synonyms; in bulk, overdose, way too many, complete and utter addiction) You got it.. you got it!

2. Airports..

I’m already embarrassed about how weird this sounds. *Blushes* I’ve just always liked being there. The whole buzz of being trip bound or at least in the presence of those who are is more than a little exciting. What can I say? This is not a recent thing, but still thrills me to this day. (Guess where I went this morning?) hehe.

3. Fancy dining and aesthetic food can’t be beaten. 

One word: Thatextremelygoodfatteninglookingthingoverthere.

Yaass please. (Come on, you can relate)

4. When I have a really perfect day that pretty much stays on repeat and is my every waking and breathing moment.

Whooosh. What a mouthful!

Did that make any sense to you? These days are the best thing. Comment down below if you’ve ever experienced something like this.

5. Finding the perfect song, and just going “Uh, why have I only JUST HEARD THIS?!”

I’m feeling this song right now. It’s got really good vibes to it, and it’s just chill. Unlike a lot of other crap that’s out there now, this is music. It’s just sweet, nothing crude.

6. Blogging and sharing everything that’s important to me

Honestly, ever since I started blogging three years ago, I’ve grown as a person. It’s so nice to be able to talk freely about what I’m passionate about and to just embrace my talents. It’s a priceless feeling and made even better when I know people want to listen, so thank you so much to each and every one of you who is taking the time to read this. I love you all so much!

7. When I do something really well. Write a really deep poem, or something that’s guaranteed to get me an A. 

No matter what it is, and this goes for anyone, success is amazing when you use it to keep growing in a healthy, happy way.

8. Crying. Why the heck is this making the happy list? 

In a weird way, it makes me happy. The whole acknowledging that my feelings are valid, whether they are ‘good or bad’ emotions is freeing. Sometimes a good cry lets you get all the sad out so you can reappear stronger than ever, and that’s a beautiful thing.

9. Visiting hip suburbs and being a part of their culture for even just a little while..

Yesterday, I did exactly this! I went to an inner city area with my mum and brother and we bought too many sweets, books (I should do a haul!) and crystals. Sometimes even the simplest of things are worth so much.

10. Waking up early..

It’s got its’ benefits! My Dad just came back from a week long holiday to Bali so I had to get up super early and rush to the airport, which wasn’t what I wanted to do at the moment, but there’s just so much time in the day when you get up early. It feels like it should be night already, even though it’s barely past morning.
