Buzzing

It is so easy for me to be invested too much in a certain kind of addiction, that slowly turns into an unhealthy obsession.

This time it is Lorde.

I’ve been listening to nothing else but her for several weeks now and still couldn’t quite fathom her mind bogglingly cool personality and artwork. So much so that I have probably starts to annoy people around me. Not that would mind.

The album Pure Heroine is out today or should I say yesterday (current clock 02:22AM 29/10/13) , and shoots straight to the top of charts so effortlessly one would think nothing of why the EU delayed the release until now. It’s been such a long while since I found myself so engrossed in an album/musician that it surprises me a little how easy it was to fall in love with Lorde’s honesty in her songs. And her straight talk no bullshit attitude she conduct during her interviews and chats makes you forget the fact that she’s only sixteen.  Well i don’t think I ever see her age as something really relevant at first place, though it is impressive how she developed the sense of maturity at such early days.  I imagine seeing her grow big, bigger than anyone would expect. And I will already be on her Team by the time.

Anyway, short update of the life as we know it. I’m back in Buxton now, and (haven’t quite) started my dissertation and assignment work. Autumn is present, the leaves have turned and walks in park are staples for the weeks we stayed out of big cities. And now I kinda get why people would always be fussy about British weather , because  it is fussy! One minute it is raining it made a parade of crooked umbrella and one minute the sun shines back. So yeah, I get it now. *pulls up hoodie*

London bound on 26 October with the lots of international students, made a video out of it below.

Ccccheck it out.

Of course I have Lorde as the video soundtrack.

Little Bit of London

My last assignment for the term was submitted at 9.20 PM on 10 May, and it just seems so funny how on 9.21 my life instantly became so much brighter. On that day too i went to Scarborough with a group of really great friends and enjoyed a good day out on the beach. I went barefoot on 12 degrees, but who cares really. Bitches be like blowing bubbles and making sandcastle; which turns out to be sandman with weirdly shaped boobs.

The next day we visited Chatsworth House, nothing really special, except we just had to eat ice cream in the rain. Mmhmm. On Monday we went to Tissington to see the Well Dressings and continued with a walk to Dovedale. It was a beautiful walk on a springtime. Really worth the 2 hours boots dragging for a view of great nature.

Also visited London for a few days, weather was so lovely and cooperative that it contributes to why the trip was fun. Managed to take a day to walk slowly in Regent’s Park and enjoy the quaint view. We stayed at YHA St. Pancras and made new friends from China, stumbled upon some “problems” during our stay, but overall it was quite fun. That’s the thing about staying in hostel i suppose; you pay for what it’s worth and it’s probably unreasonable to complain much.

Off to some visuals.

Camden Lock/Stables Market. Great markets for vintage, antique and creative arts. Most things are bargain-able, but lots of the stalls at front sells mainstream tourists merch with London/LDN/Union jack pasted everywhere. Go for the inner par of the markets to find independent brands stalls. That’s where the treasure lies.

Managed to catch Kings of Convenience live after battling for the tickets on eBay (you might notice them from the previous post). So worth it, especially being at the very front. Funny enough that I came an hour before the venue opens and I was still capable on being a front row. The venue was gorgeous and exudes such intimate atmosphere when the duo sang in perfection. Love them love them love them.

Primrose Hill/ Regent’s Park. The best day to spend a full force spring sunshine weather. Unfortunately I didn’t manage to see Gwyneth Paltrow jogging around; as some people quoted luckily.

Harrod’s and Covent Garden. Was thoroughly impressed by the window display that matched the release of The Great Gatsby during our visit. Whether it was sponsored or was initiated by the department store, it was a clever and successful marketing. Also Yoda floating in Covent garden I met.

The last full day on London was focused on.. well. Retail therapies. Ha. We’re still girls after all. That would explain the lack of picture for this particular day. Oxford St on Friday was packed and in the midst of women stuffing their faces in Zara’s new S/S ’13 collection, I met Draco Malfoy (yes, the slytherine guy) shopping with his mum and tried his best to avoid eye contact with people. I literally needed to rudely check him out;if that’s the appropriate word, to make sure he was the real deal. The problem with moi was I could only associate him as Draco, I couldn’t pull up the string of what his real name was, hence I couldn’t ask for a picture. Well, shit. Anyway i think he left with nobody knowing he was there, and gave me a smile when I was stoned with my eyes drilled at him while holding a pair of jeans. His real name is Tom Felton.

That’s a pretty hectic itinerary for someone who’ve just finished their assignment, don’t you think?

Talk to you lots soon. xo
