I’m Tired Of Being,


On The Outside,

I Wanna Know

What It’s Like.

I’m Tired of Seeing,

All The Sights,

I Wanna Feel,

Us Collide.

Not sure this means quite the same to me as it did to whoever wrote it. Either way, it’s been in my head since I heard it on the radio about a week ago in my (by the way really quite beautiful) new car, and I only just stopped to think about it today whilst stopping to think about some things I’ve been thinking about a lot lately. It’s also not the kind of music I’d normally go for; there’s something about it that I just like, somehow. I suppose it is fun to sing along to once you figure out the words.

: )



And If You Listen

You Can Hear Me Through The Radio,

In That Bright White Noise…

(Because there’s just something so pleasing about that line, and this song makes me want to dance even when I feel most worn out, unhappy and inhibited  – and so least capable – of doing so).

Put Your Music Player On Shuffle and Write The First Ten Songs That Play. 

From my main Spotify Playlist (in need of some editing, it seems) entitled ‘Roar’.


1. I Didn’t Mean It – The Belle Brigade.

2. Show Me How To Live – Audioslave.

3. Substitution – Silversun Pickups.

4. Wash – Pearl Jam.

5. Discipline – Nine Inch Nails.

6. The Captain – Biffy Clyro.

7. Badman – Newton Faulkner.

8. The Walk – Imogen Heap.

9. So Happy I Could Die – Lady GaGa.

10. Thickfreakness – The Black Keys.

Bonus Tracks:

11. Fury – Muse.

12. Dance Yrself Clean – LCD Soundsystem.

13. You Are A Tourist – Death Cab For Cutie.

14. One Day Like This – Elbow (There are many different shades of Roar, y’know).

15. We Can Make The World Stop – The Glitch Mob (If I could choose a soundtrack for the more ass-kicking moments in my life, this would most definitely feature).

I hate hate hate telling people what I’m listening to. I could be World Champion of self-consciousness. Well – go ahead and judge me. And can I just say; all of the songs you haven’t heard of up there, look them up? Shuffle actually did quite well, I think. Interesting selection.


Anyway. More importantly than my loser taste in müsyk…

Today the lovely Mr. David Kanigan, of Lead.Learn.Live nominated me for an award…

The Inspiring Blog Award.

So I need to say a big thankyou to him. I would never ever consider my words to be inspiring at all, but I am very flattered that someone out there found something in one or more of my posts that resonated. It means a lot; cheers Dave. ; )

Next thing I’m meant to do after linking y’all to his page and putting the logo up there, is list seven facts about myself. I’ll leave that part out since I just gave you all that music^; that was kinda like telling you some stuff about me, if you listened. Then I have to nominate 5-10 other blogs, and tell them I’ve done so. If you want to accept and pass on the award, those are the rules.

1. Vincent Mars

2. Coco J. Ginger

3.  Pink 

4. Pride In Madness

5. Lesley Carter

6. Cherry Coley

The first two for inspiring me to write by doing so kind of beautifully themselves, and the rest for inspiring me more personally by being continuously supportive of my efforts on here.

In other news, there is a cat – normally a very antisocial little fella – resting his head against my leg and purring while he sleeps. ^-^

Lotsa Love,


Challenge Day 5

Things You Want To Say To An Ex. 

I’m loving the fact that I can think of (almost) absolutely nothing, here. No matter which ex (of which there is technically only one) or which technically-not-an-ex-because-we-were-never-really-properly-together (of which I would say there are one and a half).

One thing I would say, to anyone who ever threw me away; if you could see all of your own flaws the way I can picture them now (and cringe a little as I do) you might just begin to regret treating me like… well, like I wasn’t worth very much, I suppose.

I’m not ruling out the idea that perhaps you were right and I wasn’t; in which case thanks for the the things you made me learn about myself and about life, and for the way that  by making me learn said things, you helped to make me a better person in some ways than I was when I met you.

I’d also say that Yes, you were right; I can do better.

(I’d also love to say that you were right when you called me amazing/beautiful/sexy/awesome/brilliant/adorable/perfect, but that would require a bit more of an ego than I currently possess. So instead I’ll just quietly hope that you meant those things when you said them).

I like to think that not only could I do better, but that I will do better.

I like to think that some day I might mean the world to that ‘better man than you’ that you once told me it would take, to stick around with someone like me.



(Far From) Silent Sunday

I’ve been hearing this song on the radio a lot lately;

I sing along at the top of my lungs every time, because it takes me away to a happy place.

I’m not quite sure how it does that, because I’m sure this song came out when I was about 11 or 12, and hadn’t been at secondary (high) school long. It reminds me of then, and that’s a phase I don’t remember enjoying all that much.

Either way, it’s nice now to think that 10 years since I first heard and sang along loudly to her songs, good ol’ P!nk is still going strong.

(I already mentioned how much I love her, right?)

Some questionable attire – and a questionable elephant – present in that video, but I can forgive. Back when the song first came out, I’m pretty sure I was making more than my fair share of questionable outfit choices. Not the same style of questionable, though.

Nor the same elephant.


I Survived Against The Will,


of my twisted folk.

But in the deafness of my world,

The Silence broke,

and said;

Follow me down, to the valley below,

You know,

Moonlight is bleedin’, from out of your soul…




Ok Florence, You Win…

By which I mean I’ve never been a fan; I liked You’ve Got the Love, but it became tainted by bad memories (pathetic as that seems now) and since then I’ve been indifferent.

And then this song became pretty badly overplayed on the radio and I decided after a little while that I actually kinda liked it. Then it got stuck in my head for days on end, and after all that I somehow still like it.

Difficult to sing quietly though; not suitable for accompaniment to washing up/pizza making/general being at work.

In other news, feeling  a bit better about life now, finally.  : )
