Two rare sunny days, too many cold ciders, thousands of LED screens across a sold-out stadium. We’ve had another pretty good week. Renee and I were also talking about how first-person pronouns have been thrown out the window completely and everything is now “we” because we spend so much goddamn time together. All possessions are shared. Personal space is a concept for people who aren’t us.

So “we” attended the Ellie Goulding concert knowing one and a half songs between us and actually had the greatest time. Her stage presence is something other-worldly. The crowd presence, not so much- everyone was either 45 and not having a bar of it or 25 and smelly, spill-your-drink-on-me intoxicated. But nonetheless, very enjoyable.

I’m sorry for the lack of everything recently, I have approximately 2 weeks of university/college left and I wanted to make sure I enjoyed every last second. Mission accomplished. I also have to figure out a place to live next year with a bunch of girls who can adult just about as well as I can. This should be interesting. Hope your week has been fantastic!

It’s finally warm enough for me to see my legs and arms without contracting hypothermia and I’m pretty damn excited about it. Spring has sprung here in Melb-town. Unfortunately, I’ve spent most of this weekend either in a state of stress or hungover-ness (I live at college, oKAY?! pls make better decisions than I do) so have not yet fully embraced the sunshine.

It was the AFL grand final yesterday and to me, of course, this means diddly-squat, but to Victorians apparently this is big news. We got a freaking public holiday. Sports will forever mystify me. Regardless, we ended up with painted faces and beers in our hands, listening to a bunch of team war cries that everybody seemed to learn when they came out of the womb. Except me. I couldn’t even tell you who won. I couldn’t even tell you the other team that played. I tried to watch the game but didn’t know the appropriate times to make happy/angry remarks at the TV so decided to make nachos instead. GOooOOo Bulldogs! At least it was a day off school, right!?

FYI, probably going to force my lazy ass to actually film something this week. Kind of just saying that in the hopes that you guys will force me to. Send motivation and snacks to my inbox please. Hope your weekend was wonderful! xx

Freezing cold wind that blisters your skin, whips your hair and forces your eyes half-shut. Skeleton of a city, bare bones of asphalt street cracking under the weight of thousands of hurried bodies scrambling across the surface. Flickering LED-lit eyes on the back of a damp tram. The rolling clang of 4 empty beer bottles sprawled across the sidewalk. Alleyways that are hot melting pots of paint fumes, pizza grease and cigarette smoke. Thick layers of half-ripped posters peeling off brick and falling under a damp stomp. A simultaneous 6pm adrenaline rush that leaves every crevice of this place full of hearts and limbs.

I love this city.

Dazed is a really good descriptor of me right now actually. I’ve been back here for a week and it feels like it’s been 2 seconds- I went straight into classes after arriving in Melb in the wee hours of the morning. I got a tram fine. I got grumpy about that. Renee and I reunited doing what we do best- nothing, but with lots of singing- and then we picnic-ed and danced on Saturday; until 7am on Sunday dawned with not a wink of sleep. Of course, on Monday morning I had The World’s Biggest and Most Stressful Exam to complete and that studying was done in the hours that I should’ve been sleeping. I hit some kind of delirious state at 4 am, got onto webMD and diagnosed myself with conjunctivitis because that’s what I do when I’m overtired. Apparently. And how was your weekend?

PS- there’s a video on my channel if you haven’t seen it. You probably should. I’m gonna get some sleep now before I get fake conjunctivitis again. Much love x
