Instagram Poems + Fake Friends

She had blue skin,  and so did he,  He kept it hid, and so did she,  They searched for blue, Their whole life through, Then passed right by- And never knew. This was a poem I read earlier today on Instagram (@emmamercury) and it stuck with me all day. It made me remember all those times when I would put on a ‘mask’ in front of people in a hopeless attempt to get them to like me more, thinking that they would be impressed or that I would become more popular, likeable and even beautiful. Now that I am 20, I’ve learnt a lot about myself and although I still have much much more to learn from, I feel that the me one, five and ten years ago was completely different than the person who I am today. So I’ve compiled a list of 7 things (to keep it short and sweet) of things that I have learnt over the brief period of years. Hope you enjoy xx You can’t get everyone to like you… and that’s …

Don’t We Have It All?

  I am currently listening to a remix of ‘Lost Frequencies‘ (click on the song name for 2 and a half minutes of ear-gasm) and became immersed in recollections and ideas that have been on my mind recently as well as a sudden spark of thoughts so I hastily opened my blog and here I am typing away. I hope my conglomerated flow of ideas aren’t too confusing to understand. Listening to this song struck a chord for me; I don’t know if it was the upbeat bass that always gets me pumped up, or the simple lyrics leaving room for interpretation. Either way, I was suddenly taken on a journey starting from my childhood and ending up to present day. I was on a magic carpet ride of notes and tunes lulling me from my memories of the past to present day me. ‘I can fly high, I can go low’ transported me to when I was 6 years old. Fingers sticky from lemonade icy poles and wearing brightly coloured scrunchies, I dreamt of what I …

The Imposter

Definitely one of the creepiest documentaries I’ve seen. If you’re interested (like me) in exploring the depths of psychological thrilling, murder mysteries and disturbing real life events, this is for you. I’ve always been enticed by watching documentaries, from cultural documentaries expanding on the lifestyles around the world, to looking at the realm of fashion and beauty to factual news reporting documentaries, I never thought of myself to be the Nancy Drew advocate of criminal documentaries. The Imposter (2012) is a British-American documentary film about the 1997 case of the French confidence trickster Frédéric Bourdin, who impersonated Nicholas Barclay, a Texas boy who disappeared at the age of 13 in 1994. Following the film, the director Bart Layton takes you along in this spine tingling journey through the retelling of the day Nicholas went missing through the stories and recollections of his family. The impersonator, Frederic is also one of the main spokesperson in the film, and his thoughts and sharing are interwoven in this documentary so seamlessly that i often forget that he’s a …
