So I found an awesome site where they have platform sneakers, they're basically exactly like the ones I was gonna buy originally, but they're only about £23 instead of £30 or whatever, and they've got white ones and blue ones instead of only having yellow in stock, which is great but now I have no idea what colour I want to get. I think I'll probably still get the yellow ones and then I'll get those tie dye laces like I was originally going to do, and yeah. Great.

Ever since I dropped out of school over a year ago my mom’s been telling me I should look into the Folk High Schools in Norway, and recently she’s really been talking about it, so I’ve just been on the site for the first time and idk, I think I’ve always known I’d think it’d be a good idea but I’ve just never got around to looking into it..
“Folk high schools are one-year boarding schools offering a variety of exciting non-traditional and non-academic subjects, as well as academic subjects. The idea of folk high schools is learning for life, an opportunity to grow both individually, socially, and academically in small learning communities. All students live on campus in close contact with staff and their fellow students. One important part of the folk high school experience is to form a community, in and out of class. “

I think the idea of moving away to a foreign country where I don’t speak the language, by myself, is both the most terrifying and probably the most exciting thing I’d ever do. 

And it’s kind of perfect timing. Most of the people I know are about my age and will be going off to uni after the summer, I’d be doing a similar thing, so I wouldn’t feel like a failure, but I’d be doing something much better for me and much better for my future. 

My aunt went there when she was about my age, and my granddad taught at one for a while or something, and for anyone who doesn’t know, I’m half norwegian and my family have a house there, so it’s the type of thing that isn’t completely unrealistic. I could really apply, there are loads of schools so I’m bound to get into one, I don’t see why I wouldn’t. 

The more I think about it the more I get really nervous, because what if I did get in? Could I really move to Norway by myself? Oh my god, it’s terrifying to even think about, but a kind of good terrifying. 

I've only really talked to my best friend about it. I don't want to tell people until I'm sure what I'm doing.. but I'm fairly sure I'm going to apply, I keep thinking about it and it makes me really excited. I love the idea that I'd go there and nobody would know me and I could be anything I wanted. 
My mom's already said that we could go on like, a "shopping spree" to get new clothes before I left, and I'd love that. I have no money ever, so I don't really have any of the clothes I want, like, I don't dress how I would if money wasn't a problem, if that makes sense. It sounds a bit selfish, but I will use it as an excuse to get the things I've had my eye on for a while. I'd want to go there feeling good about myself and how I look. 

It's all so scary, it really is, but I just want it to all get sorted so I can apply. 

Been browsing etsy for hours, these are all from the same seller and I think I'm in love. Gonna try and convince my mom to buy them all for me because she loves me (hopefully)

I don't think anyone could understand how much I want this top oh my god 

My mom bought me this shirt!!!! It should arrive soon, which makes me really happy
Just ordered these two beautiful items from romwe, which was pretty cool because I had a voucher for $30.99, a voucher for $7, and a 20% off code, I'm not sure exactly how much that is in £ but they were both $40.99, so one ended up being $10 and the other about $20 something. 
Can't wait for them to arrive. 
I've already got an awesome outfit planned for when the skirt comes and when I've bought the shoes and the tie dye laces, I'll wear it with this tie dye vest top I'm making in a week or so and it'll look great.
After I've got the shoes I'll have just over £5 left and I'm gonna get a six pack of henna tubes and watch a bunch of tutorials so I can do perfect designs, I'm really looking forward to it all.
Having money is so nice. Kinda sucks that as soon as it comes through to my paypal account I already know what I'm gonna spend it on, so it'll basically be gone in about 5 minutes aha.

I made just over £40 by selling my white creepers, which has made me very happy. 
Originally I was going to buy some flat black creepers, because I only thought I was gonna get about £25, but because I made enough I can buy the platform sneakers that I've wanted for ages and ages. 
I'm also going to buy these tie dye laces to wear with them, because I think they're kinda perfect. 
I'm just waiting for the payment to clear because I'm a first time selling so I don't get it straight away, which sucks, and then I'll buy these literally straight away and hopefully they won't take forever to arrive.

According to someone on tumblr, The Devil's Hole is "a massive swamp full of shrooms and a massive statue of Satan.", so, naturally, I have to go there.

gonna miss my creepers, but the bids already at £28 which is fantastic

I'm selling these, because I want to buy a pair in black. I've got a pair of black creepers, but they're 3 inch platforms, so it's a bit annoying having to wear them whenever I wanna wear black ones. The more I look at this though the more upset I'm getting about selling them, they're beautiful.

I've wanted to dye my hair like, half something and half something else for so long. I did it when I was about 14 and had a long stupid emo fringe and it looked ridiculous, but I've always sort of wanted to do it again and my hair's kind of a perfect style for it now.
I don't want to do half black half blonde, because I don't want to bleach my hair or dye it black ever again really. I want to do colours that will just fade and I can do something else with it once I get bored without damaging my hair.
My hair's bluey-green right now, so realistically I could do this as soon as it fades, I just need to get the money.

I've got the blue denim levi jacket that everyone else has, it was my uncles and so it's really old and all ripped up. I really really want a black denim jacket. This is exactly the same as the blue one I have but in black, which I think I want, but I also think I might look around for a black denim-look shirt that I can wear in summer without dying and sweating loads ahah.
