“What if you’re unaware of the color around you, and you’re just walking through or leaning against the wall, and you don’t realize how electric it is? what if you are how everyone sees you and you don’t realize that the world is exploding in colors behind you?”

And he was like, ”I love that idea.“

HI EVERYONE!!
My name is Ava, I’m 17 from London, England and I have posted here a few times but with a lot of people conversation eventually fizzles out and it feels kinda forced…. so I’m just not gonna say too much so there’s still stuff to talk about but enough so potential friends get a feel for me yo! I speak English and enough Spanish to have a conversation, and enough french to make myself sound a bit silly…

So i am pretty studious, i actually love learning and I’m doing online astrobiology (basically aliens) courses as well as doing AS level chem bio physics and maths at the mo hahhhaha i promise i am interesting tho!

Apart from reading random science books, i do like to indulge in random cute YA books, one of my absolute favourites is simon vs the Homo sapiens agenda!! Did i mention I’m really gay?? Just thought I’d put that out there 👌🏽

As for music, i love everything. Elvis to paramore to Elliott smith the the cure…. recommend me anything and i will probably love it lol!! I dont watch a lot of tv but i love Skam, stranger things, Degrassi, riverdale and rupauls drag race :-)

Also i love art and poetry and being a bit spiritual sometimes when i slow down to appreciate the world, but a lot of the time i forget. Hopefully, to whoever is reading this, we can become friends and be a little part of each other’s lives, and make each other’s days a bit better ? :-)))

ALSO i have a pomeranian and he’s my baby u will get photos of him!

If i sound vaguely interesting to u, tell me a bit about urself !! Hmu @ avatrue01@gmail.com

Music recs from my followers

Say Yes - Elliott Smith  I love this song, it’s so sweet

Sunset Boulevard - Alan Campbell  I really like his voice

The Party - Regina Spektor Everything that Regina does is P-E-R-F-E-C-T-I-O-N

Maneater - Blue Eyed Blondes I think I’ve heard this song before but anyway, a great tune

Radar Detector - Darwin Deez This is very different, I’m not sure if i like it or not.

Dark Sarah - Dance With the Dragon i’m very confused, the chorus is very over the top and that’s just how i like it but the rest of the song is meh

Between the Bars
Elliott Smith
Between the Bars
Drink up baby, stay up all night
With the things you could do
You won’t but you might
The potential you’ll be that you’ll never see
The promises you’ll only make
Drink up with me now
And forget all about the pressure of days
Do what I say and I’ll make you okay
And drive them away
The images stuck in your head

The people you’ve been before
That you don’t want around around anymore
That push and shove and won’t bend to your will
I’ll keep them still

Drink up baby, look at the stars
I’ll kiss you again between the bars
Where I’m seeing you there with your hands in the air
Waiting to finally be caught
Drink up one more time and I’ll make you mine
Keep you apart, deep in my heart
Separate from the rest, where I like you the best
And keep the things you forgot

The people you’ve been before
That you don’t want around anymore
That push and shove and won’t bend to your will
I’ll keep them still

“There’s a certain language people use when they’re talking about music, to make it more marketable, by narrowing down what it is until it has one name and price tag. That’s sort of necessary, I guess, if you’re trying to sell things to people who don’t know what they are. It’s got to have a name like a car or a suit. You can’t say, well, it’s sort of like this and it’s sort of like that and you should try it, because no-one will buy it. It has to have a name, so people go to great lengths to sell themselves into a tiny little situation. Sometimes it’s cool when people get locked into a style, but I can’t stand it.”
