It's heating up, finally! I've always, and will always be, a winter child but it's nice to be able to wear patterned tights, silk shirts and simple cardigans again ie. what I wore to uni today. Also lying around on the lovely uwa campus lawns, summer is just so much more of a sociable season. I can't wait til the festivals start up again, not to mention beach days and Sunday afternoon barbecues.

"I can't see anything that I don't like about you.~ Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
But you will! But you will. You know, you will think of things.Okay.
And I'll get bored with you and feel trapped because that's what happens with me.
I'm pretty sure I've posted this before, but it applies so much to my life right now that i'm going post it again.

Argh, today the moment I walked off the bus the sky turned to grey and it bucketed down with rain for the entire walk home. Such luck I always have with the rain. In other news, I have a university ball coming up within the next month and I have no idea what to wear, I'd love to go in something like a black velvet gown with red lips and curled hair, something potentially 40s and kind-of dark and mysterious (see photos). It's fun to dress up and look pretty and i'm rather excited for it to be honest, even though balls are totally pretentious and expensive. I have this vintage velvet black dress that I'm fairly certain I'll end up wearing.
University is into it's third week and I have a French test on Tuesday. It shouldn't be too difficult as we haven't covered too much content as of yet. Life's pretty damn good at the moment, although I've been flat out since uni began (probably just me overreacting when saying that- there has only been two weeks after all.) Booked both the Wombats and the Jezabels tickets and found out that Beirut are headlining at Southbound which should be amazing as they're pretty much my favourite bad (have you listened to their new album The Rip Tide, ah ear orgasm right there.) So excited. It's pretty much all good things in my life at the moment, everything seems to be aligning. Better not jinx it...

Just finished Submarine. It wasn't bad, but I think I was a little bit too old to enjoy it as much as I did. I've been indulging in far too many indie high school awkward tragedies that tell you that life as a teenager sucks but it will get better. They're all so trite but oh-so-amazing.

"Resolved: that Hal Hefner should really stop letting the world tell him what's possible and try to find out for himself. Maybe that's just a life's philosophy suited only to some of us, those who cherish winning. So maybe it's not for you. But I think it is."A film filled with awkward high school kissing scenes and debate tournaments was definitely one that I knew I was going to not only enjoy but love. Written and directed by Jeffry Blitz conceived on the basis of a fictional equivalent to the documentary Spellbound, Rocket Science captures the clumsy first moments of teenagedom, following a 15-year-old stutterer who decides to join the debate team after being asked by it's star member. I pretty much just loved the way the film summed up awkwardness in one single kiss-- which was one of the most excruciating scenes to watch. It's coming of age plotline was one that we've all seen before-- boy falls in love with girl, gets his heartbroken etc. However it's blunt, square cinematography as well as uncomfortably long shots made the film so much more than a typical teenage high school drama. It conveyed a sense of modern eloquence in the dealings of mundane coming of age issues, amongst the likes of Rushmore and Juno. Ahh this film has to be up there with one of the classic high school dramas made. I'm tired and ceebs writing eloquently, but in short, if you're a fan of the awkward teenage melodrama; watch it!
