2009 in pictures

Collapse )

i'm not going to make resolutions for 2010. 2009's were move out, get a partner and be improve photographically, none of which i have done. however, i did want to have a "productive summer" which i think i did.
in stead i will have things i'd like to do this year. which are pretgty much the same as last year. i'd like to get a new job to, i'm not happy where i am, and in a a way i'm glad i've been ill over the past two weeks.

evryone wants to make a change in 2010 it seems, but i just hop we all have a good year. i've already got tickets to see WHY? in march and VASHTI BUNYAN in may, win.

peace and fucking.

painting my nails black

love preparing for halloween, i feel like rocky before the big fight. DUN. DUN DUN DUN. DUN DUN DUN. DUN DUN DUUUUUN.

tomorrow is fancy dress and general celebrations at work.
saturday i'm going to town.
sunday is the zombaid (you walk through town dressed as a zombie, there's a world record attempt for the thriller dance and a ball afterwards)

so i'll spend the next three days dressed as half man half woman, pores clogged with white face make-up and fake blood.

things are ok, i'm feeling very very emotional and temperamental but what's new. i've had some major lows this week, but it's nothing that can be solved so i just have to deal with it. fukkit.

peace and fucking XXX
