The Mind is a Curious Thing

Artwork by Kate Louise Powell

I wish I had a wild imagination, where polysyllabic words filled my vocabulary, making my mouth spill sweet and elegant thoughts. I wish my mind was a torch, directing me towards one notion at a time.

I wish I could stop wishing. Because I have a psychedelic imagination. I have a grand library inside of my head, spilling out with every breath I take.

And I realise that my mind could never be a torch, because directing me to only one thought would be a terrible crime. Because my mind lives to wander, with curiosity to fuel it, and a complex structure that yearns to be explored.

Summer 2015

Source: Nabsticle

You know that feeling of complete elation mixed with the epitome of zealous? Well, I felt that the moment I stepped out of the sports hall after finishing my last exam on Friday 22nd. It’s crazy to think that I’ve completed my first year of college. All of the mind-straining stress, the exhaustion and panic has evaporated and I finally feel so free. That heavy weight of pressure has lifted and damn, I couldn’t be more relieved.

My summer has officially started and since this is my brother’s last summer with us before he goes to university, I’m prepared to make it the best we’ve had to date. (Something that I say every year but I’m going to try really hard this time!)

I’m hoping to focus on this little blog and to make it a creation that I’m really proud of. I also want to dedicate time to properly learn photography and to be able to take really abstract and unique photos because I’m always admiring other people’s photography skills. Plus, I’m hoping to give more time to my sisters (who have been begging me to play with them but I had to keep refusing due to the piles of revision I had to endure…) As you can probably guess, they were equally ecstatic when my exams were over.

On the day of my last exam I treated myself to a brand new notebook from Homesense (featured in the photo above). I instantly fell in love when I saw it, and I’m hoping to fill it up with the things that I do in the next few months. I have a feeling that this summer is going to be one of learning, not just about the world but also about myself.

Thanks so much for being patient because I know it’s been so long since I’ve posted on here. I have to say, it feels so good to be writing again, I’ve really missed it. I’m now going to go and jam to the Hairspray soundtrack, which I’ve been religiously listening to a little too often than I’d like to admit…

Good luck to those of you who are still sitting exams!

Have you got any plans this summer? Who else adores the Hairspray soundtrack?
