happy moments

April 04, 2017

Officially, this should be happy moments #4, as I started a mini series back in January 2015 and didn't continue it past three.. but it isn't. It's just a happy moment. Just some things that make me smile and cheer and make me curl my lips up in a non depreciating way. Here are my happy moments of the week: 

tunes such as these: lany - good girls \\ oh wonder - ultralife \\ mura masa - one night \\ lorde - green light \\ charli xcx - lipgloss \\ olivia o'brien - hate u love u \\ yves - when the day comes \\ chord overstreet - hold on \\ ~you can find these on my spotify here~

zara: I've spent a lot of money in there these past couple of weeks, and received lots of lovely things in return (one being a pair of trousers that actually fit!?) 

nice visa man: I now hold a US visa!? So thank you nice US citizen for allowing me into your country \ thank you london for only raining once :) :) 

mickey mouse: Seeing the new and improved Disneyland Paris has made me smile more than it perhaps should but the glo-up of Fantasia Gardens with GLASS STATUES needs to be admired by someone other than the DLP update accounts

o2 priority: I got a free large mocha today and I'm not entirely sure why, but thank you somewhat expensive phone contract for that freebie

the national student: I've written quite a few things on there this week, and I'm proud of myself for it. It's challenging to write in a way I'm not 100% sure I'm used to yet, but I'm going to keep trying and minimise the urge to write as if I'm word vomiting out of my head. Like now

la la land: Just everything. La La Land is a masterpiece that needs to be admired and popped in a museum somewhere, or in your local HMV store. And a museum, a very artsy (hopefully free) museum with popcorn and a large screen and probably a tango ice blast machine. Basically a cinema. But on screens forever 

friends: You've been cool. Have a good day y'all ~this is 100% going to be my accent every day this summer, sorry not sorry

yes i'm doing this in the same design as 2015 me did #throwbacks
see you soon \ lots of love

listening/doing/studying

March 13, 2017

this is me taking a nero selfie, how embarassing
listening/doing/studying 

This post was going to be cute and long and about me and my life these past few weeks, a filtered version of my journal perhaps. An online edit for the 50000000 of you who read this pretty regularly, who stayed even though I disappeared and lived and discovered that I'm happiest when listening to atmospheric music and eating crisps. Like now. 

Like I still have faults. I still say cute way too often. I've counted three times I deleted the adjective in the previous four line paragraph. That's not good. Using good as an adjective isn't great either. Gah I have a lot to learn. 

But this is what I've discovered on the net these past couple weeks. Think of it a text version of my car stereo and inner thoughts while listening to said car stereo, and come back to see other things better than this. About me. About happy me. Because God knows that I've become a 98647% better person this past year. 

I'M HAPPY yay

  • dodie / jon cozart - city of stars

disney's cultural exchange program bucket list

March 02, 2017

~with my visa application from yummy jobs~
For those of you who don't know (like four of you for the amount of time I've spent blabbering on about it), I am moving to Disney World for three months this summer to partake in Disney's Cultural Exchange Program and I am SO excited. Like talk-all-the-time-and-never-shut-up excited. Ridiculously excited. I cried when I found out. SO EXCITED.

It's also going to be my first time in Disney World, so I've got 500000000 things I'd love to do - and with three months to complete it all, I've got plenty of time to peruse the Magic Kingdom to my hearts content. There may be no more Wishes by the time I get to the States, but damn my wishes have come true already so ~who cares~ 

(me. a lot. i wanted to see wishes. gah youtube is the only option now)

So anyway.. here's my bucket list for the BEST SUMMER OF MY LIFE (hopefully)
  • visit every park and get a picture of both myself and my staff name tag in each location
  • get more than one name tag for my uniform, so i can be from both york and scarborough
  • ride every single ride
  • see every show (even ellen's energy adventure lol)
  • try the kitchen sink at beaches and cream
  • eat at ohana (can i say this when i've already got a booking? yes i can)
  • try and visit the gym in chatham/wherever i end up living at least once
  • be the last guest in the park
  • arrive for opening at magic kingdom (and everywhere else if you can)
  • visit every resort and see all the fab theming
  • go to the waterparks at least once
  • try american food!! you're in america for gods sake
  • go to as many stereotypical american places as possible eg. walmart
  • send a postcard home!
  • take every opportunity to meet characters 
  • fill an autograph book
  • take a day (or more) to just relax and sunbathe and swim and realise you're living the dream
  • go to universal (annual pass yes?)
  • go to a housing event
  • play grocery bingo 
  • earn $$$$$ and spend $$$$$$
  • get a celebrating badge because I'M CELEBRATING being in disney of course 
  • i'll be working around pin trading so please start it yourself liv
  • get pins for your location / favorite ride / memory
  • try and buy one piece of merch specific to each park
and most importantly...
  • ~make friends and have lots of fun~
from a gal with lots of faith, trust and pixie dust,
