Thought-provoking questions from thought-provoking people

I have been tagged in a lil question-tag by both Ally (agirlnamedally) & Maddy (talkingflowers)! They’re questions are phenomenal, and incredibly self-reflective (which is like my favourite past-time ever), so needless to say I had a fab time answering them! 

Ally’s questions:

  1. Would you kill an innocent person if it meant saving dozens of others?
    Definitely not!. Putting aside the fact that I think it’d be so incredibly difficult to actively take a life - if someone was not responsible for the death of those dozens of others, they have just as much right to live, and I most certainly do not have the authority to take away that right. They may choose to take their own life in order to save dozens of others, but that’s their choice and no one has the right to make it for them.

Keep your shoes clean. Don’t be afraid to spend a bit more money on a beautiful journal, because if you love the feeling of gripping it in your hands you’ll write more. Same goes for having nice nails - your hands will look more grown up and prepared for adulthood, which somehow makes you feel the same. Never leave home without a watch on. Spend time reading - the books on your bedside table, the articles on your facebook feed, the faces on your train - everything is an inspiration. Floss every day. And always carry with you a bottle of water. Keep your eyebrows neat. Same goes for your desk - throw away all the clutter but always use coloured post-it notes (they make any old page look organised and important). Drink green tea. Cut your hair . Spend more on less - it will force you to reevaluate the worth of material things. Always always always wash your face before going to bed. Use good pens - life’s too short for a shitty biro. Slow down. Use a different handbag tomorrow. Focus.

After an entire weekend of sunshine, today took a chilly turn which meant I could wear my beautiful coat one last time before summer takes over! It was a good day ☁️☁️

Vanilla Rooibos Tea, magazines and laptop time? That’s right, mid-semester break has officially started and I have never needed it more 🙌🙌🙌

I’m so excited for an entire week to reset my head, catch up to my life and have some much needed me-time, ohhh yes!

Does anyone else get those days or weeks or months when you just lose sight of what you want, where you’re heading and why you’re doing all this living and moving and learning? 
I entered into this sort of ennui at the start of this month, allowing myself to fall into a rut of negative energy and directionlessness. The happiness default I’d written about and prided myself with at the start of year seemed to have escaped me – I felt sad and bored; I felt like I was moving along in some kind of half-existence. And it sucked!
So today, I cleared my diary and turned to my journal. I needed time to carefully and honestly evaluate what exactly had happened in the past month to make me feel so blue.
Today, I discovered that somewhere down the line, I’d forgotten to check in with myself. It turns out there are little things I need to do for myself – and on face value they may seem irrelevant to getting higher grades or strengthening friendships, but they are so so so important. Yoga makes me feel stronger in more ways than one; clearing my desk clears my mind; painting my nails makes me concentrate more on what I’m doing with my hands. And feeding my mind? Oh man – that makes me feel like me. I hadn’t realised how important these things were in my life until I stopped doing them, and I need to work on reminding myself to always keep doing them even when life gets a bit heavy.

I took my Grandpa to visit my Uni because he’d always heard me talk about how beautiful it is.
After spending several minutes intensely reading the sign outside the Old Geology Building, he turned to me with the biggest grin and said “I’m older than that building.” 
HE IS SO FREAKING CUTE!!

I got to make (the very early stages of) a website in one of my classes this semester, and now I just really really want to start my own online magazine filed with intelligent, interesting and hilarious stories about art & culture & travel & style!! I MEAN LOOK HOW PRETTY IT WOULD BE!!

Today I found a very lost puppy while walking home from the train station!
He didn’t really get along with my own dog, but they were quite happy to lay next to each other through the safety of a glass sliding door. It just so happened to be that the lost dog I found is my own dog’s doppelgänger!
It was a pretty cute night!

Today I took a trip to IKEA (and if you know me but at all, you’d know I spent most of my time looking through their 2014 catalogue - it was divine). The plan was to buy a new desk chair, but I got distracted and bought some pretty plants as well.

And then I went home and PUT THE WHOLE CHAIR TOGETHER LIKE A STRONG INDEPENDENT WOMAN! It’s so pretty, and it’s got removable material so I can wash it & keep it nice!

It was a proud day for me.

I wrote a little reflection on my wordpress about my first time skiing at Mt. Buller this winter break. I really tackled a few fears of mine (falling, not being in control, trying new things, heights) going skiing, so I’m really proud of myself :) I also was reminded of how much I freaking love human beings.
Anyway, you can read about my trip here if you’d like!

I took some selfies on my dad’s phone and he called me a loser 😭

(also you can’t see but that’s a watermelon shirt I’m wearing & I love it that’s all)

I somehow managed to find some cacti in the wettest place on earth! Doesn’t make any sense but I appreciate 😎

So I tried to take one of those cool pictures out of the plane window yesterday, and somehow it ended up looking like A SHARK AT THE AQUARIUM! It was SO FREAKING COOL!

Phew! Finally packed & ready for my two-week Snow to Sun holiday!!

For the first 5 days I’ll be skiing down slopes (yikes, wish me luck!) and singing “do you want to build a snowman” non-stop with my favourite pals in Mt. Buller!

Then it’s beautiful sun & swim sessions in Bali (Legion) with my wonderful fam-bam for some much needed R&R. 

Love the idea of escaping dreary, mundane weather in pursuit of exciting polar climates! Very excited & will keep both Tumblr & Instagram updated with happy snaps (most likely of Olaf replicas and crystal waters).

Today I am spending the day making some more collages for my How To: A Guide by Baya series on Wordpress!
One of the most therapeutic things in the world is cutting & pasting pretty images while listening to the “The Fault in Our Stars” soundtrack (which I’m currently obsessed with). So excited to finally have time to write for leisure again (it’s been almost 2 months!!) and after this I’m going to catch up on all the Yen magazines I’ve neglected to read because of assignments & other lame things!
It’s going to be a good day, if only the weather wasn’t so sad today.
