Oh wow, lovely

A good part of my holiday has entailed discovering the UK show Skins. I had wanted to watch it for a while, and so I finally bit the bullet and had a full on marathon. I adore generation 1 the most, in particular the character Cassie Aimsworth. What's not to love about her dreamy, despite sometimes crazy, personality? She is also a bit of a style icon for me. I wanted to fill out a list of sorts inspired by her therapy video (watch here). The owner of The Little Blog of Happiness credits herself for creating the 'Cassie Therapy Tag'; it is a lot of fun, you should give it a go!
Abracadabra, wow!
I like boys who work in bookshops and girls who keep dream journals
I like forgotten treasures
I like books that break your heart
I like water droplets on rose petals
I like swift glances exchanged with strangers
I like lighting candles while listening to mix tapes
I like watching a film in an empty cinema
I like people who never smile. Ever. And I like people who smile
I like ribbons tied around wrists
I love peter pan collars
Today I went to a small art gallery displaying print works by a French artist
In some ways, I love everything. It's less, it's less of a thing to like, it's less distinct, it's less particular. I like things I like but I love everything. There's more choice in like cos' even the worst things have things you love in them. I love things so much I feel like I could float away. I don't know what you mean about things I hate.
I hate this in between, of wanting to get the hell out of school but also never wanting to say goodbye to everything I have known for so long
I hate when health experts tell us what we 'should' be eating, and their contradicting ideas
I hate taking my medications
I hate war and conflicts
I hate when I feel like I can never be good enough
I hate how the word 'love' is so overused but in a way it would be nice to think that we all have so much love to give
I hate shopping centers
I hate when things change
I hate this...wow sorry
