Okay, I know I said I wouldn't post for a while, but have you ever spent about 90% of your waking hours in a small, confined space with several teenagers, no open windows and one fan??
Yes, welcome to the library.
I simply refuse to go there tomorrow.
As my brain had reached vegetative state, I decided that the obvious thing to do was take a photo, but horrific weather meant it had to be taken inside/out of my window.
And my window has a Peter Rabbit sticker on it (:
ps. my friend says she thinks I look like Cathy from Wuthering Heights??

  39. O same here!! supper annoying! I have the concentration of a goldfish. Im just like the girlfriend of nemo in the film, who forgets everything. And facebook, blogger, skype and text, making it only worse. I also have to learn from my laptop & the only thing that helps a bit is shutting everything down.
    But still, even a mosquito is more interesting than learning .. Exams are hell ..: (

    loving your blog!

  53. i think taking a break from the library is a good thing, especially if you're using that break to release your energy by blogging. soon things will be fun again! and maybe you can take some great photos in an abandoned garage or something, :)

  54. i gave so much thought to my blog name, but i'm glad i did, because i've never regretted it. it was just around the time when i was really resenting where i live for being so small and not having any kind of indie culture, and one of our acquaintances put on an 'indie night', which was a total joke and really boring. so i thought about it for a while and came up with that as a representation of how i was feeling about life and stuff in general.
    i wore the shoes that are in my header to the indie night, so it all works together.
    i love your surname, btw. is that weird?
