Listening to Tame Impala; The Less I Know The Better and thinking about my very near future. Last night I was inspired by a certain Youtuber Cartia Mallan who makes exciting and hilarious Vlogs of her random adventures through Australia, documenting everything from the outfits she’s wearing; the new friends she’s made and the BEAUTIFUL scenery around her.
And it got me thinking what I want to do with my life next.
For so long now I’ve been getting sucked deeper and deeper into the dark and ever expanding black hole of consumerism, wealth and power (mainly because of watching too much Gossip Girl, oops). Although to be financially stable is certainly something I plan to be in the future, it should not have complete power over me and my thoughts.
Cartias’ videos reminded me of how GOOD it feels to be with friends; to smile; to explore cool new places and that is exactly what I plan to do.
For the last month I have left in England I will indulge myself in the (not-so)glamorous parties, city shopping and classy style. It’s the English way to live. And I’ve come to terms with that. Unless you live in Inner-Sydney or over looking the harbour, the Australian life isn't “glamorous” per say. It’s the smell of hot chips and tomato-sauce at the beach; warm suncream on your skin; salty waves crashing against the strong sand. It’s smiling with friends; cold beers clinking and being chugged; long road trips in a shitty toyota. It’s what I love. It’s my home.
So. Actually, I can’t really remember what my original point was, but it feels good to know that Australia is what I want, elegant or not.
Also, SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS 2016. or 2017. :-)))))
