So the @SheBrisbane Twitter acct talked to Tom last week. Here is their quote: Not only was he happy to get a photo with us after his long day, but he stayed and chatted for ages. We declare him one of the nicest guys we have ever met. He wouldn’t confirm or deny that Taylor would be back to visit soon, but we got the feeling that she will be here within weeks. Yay, let's hope!!!

hi there! i know i may sound weird and im sorry about that, but i read your post about that condition you have (synthesia, right?) and i have so many questions because when i first read the post the first thing i thought was 'oh wow shes so lucky i wish i had it too' but then i thought 'is she, tho?' like... is it hard? does it get annoying? or is it as cool as it sounds? im so sorry.. it's the first time i hear of it and i found it so interesting. i hope you're doing good and have a great day!

Hi! You don’t sound weird at all and I encourage people to ask questions. “Why” is one of my favourite words, opening doors to some sort of infinity. Like the great astronomers! Anyway, enough with the pompous and on with your question!

It’s actually not hard! For me, at least. It doesn’t hurt you or hinder you in any way. It’s just there… Sort of like an ability to see things a bit differently. I’ve heard of people connecting names and taste, though. For example if they hear the name “Felicity,” it’ll taste like…bacon or something that revolts the person. I’m glad I don’t have that, but then again it might not be as terrible as it sounds.

The only thing that’s been bothering me since I was little is that I’ve got numbers fixed at a certain point in my mind. It’s very hard to explain but imagine a ladder that stands upright. Every step is a number from 1 and up. When I think of my age I see the numbers in my head. I can “see into the future” this way by “looking up” and spotting the ages I will reach. 30. 32. Etc. But here’s the creepy part. I’m not able to find a spot above 40. It is nonexistent! 

This has actually led me to believe - jokingly with pals but seriously with my therapist - that I won’t be alive after I’m forty. Obviously I was just paranoid! But it bothers me that there’s no room for when I’m above forty. What happens when I reach it? Is it like floating through space (in my head?)

There’s a lot of technicalities regarding synesthesia and you can read all about it here if you’re keen. I haven’t bothered going far into the facts and whatnots about it cos it’s just…how I perceive things? I actually discovered what it’s called through this singer years ago who said she had it. I’m very into psychology so I looked it up and dropped my jaw. 

I think I’ve got it the strongest with music, though. They call it sound-to-colour synesthesia. When I hear a sound I instantly “hear” a colour, or a million of them. My favourite music is purple. But it’s not just this bland purple. It’s like the purple/pink colour of a nebulae. Like this one:

It’s so beautiful it makes me want to cry! One Direction’s What A Feeling is this exact colour, easily making it a favourite off that album, while Walking In The Wind is a greenish yellow, A.M being orange. I remember standing at a gig once and telling someone “this song is purple!” and this guy turned around and gaped, saying, “I know! It’s so fucking purple, it’s amazing!” I thought he was pulling my leg at first but turned out he was serious.

Harry is actually the first person to me who’s a purple kind of one - like the nebulae - but also yellow and green. 

From Wikipedia: “There is a great variety in types of synesthesia, and within each type, individuals report differing triggers for their sensations and differing intensities of experiences. This variety means that defining synesthesia in an individual is difficult, and the majority of synesthetes are completely unaware that their experiences have a name.

I hope you understood my terrible way of explaining. I haven’t actually put it in words before as I’ve always shrugged it off as something everyone experiences. And thank you so much for asking!! If you’ve got more questions I’m here! :D

Thank you so much! I can’t wait to meet you!

Group chat update!

Sorry I’ve been vacant, school has started and even though today was only my third day, it’s absolutely kicked my ass! But I have some news about the group chat, basically updated of sorts!

  1. We now have a fully functioning minors chat (for ages 13-17), adult chat (ages 18+), and a general chat (all ages)
  2. Discord has been weird lately so I can’t seem to send friend requests, so I’ll send you a link to the chat through tumblr’s messenger system. If the link doesn’t work let me know because for some reason it likes to reset itself even though I set it to permanent link!
  3. I’ll be sending everyone (who didn’t get a message or a friend request tonight) a link to join the chat tonight so hopefully everyone will be able to join the chat soon!

Have a good day / night!!

I did a purge of my Skype contacts because I had so many people I didn’t even recognise or hadn’t talked to in ages. Any record of chat logs we might have had were lost when I upgraded to Windows 10 a year ago. 

Some of the people I removed on Skype I’m still mutuals with and trust me, I don’t plan to unfollow you here. In fact, one of the reasons why I might have deleted you if we’re mutuals is because we have contact here and never talk on Skype so it seemed pointless to have just one more inactive Skype contact when we could just as easily chat here.

If you were one of the people I removed, I hope I didn’t hurt your feelings. I still consider you a friend and if you’re reading this and you want to be re-added, let me know. But for right now, just know that I’ve just done some cleaning up and none of it is personal.
