forget me not.



I sat by the forget-me-nots and wondered why I put so much effort into not letting anyone forget about me. If they do - so what? They were clearly never worth my time. Don't waste time on people who aren't willing to waste their time on you. Some people are worth the effort, and you will quickly learn who those people are. Do your best to hold onto them.

"I would die for you. But I won't live for you."

I've been reading so much lately, I feel like I've gone a bit mad; the real world isn't real anymore. I love the world and everything in it, but when I read I feel like it is mine and mine alone. I can be anywhere, and if I pick up a book I am somewhere else. Someone else. I’m scared I’m going to get lost.

  2. Aww I loved this post! You look gorgeous, as do your words.

    I can't wait to get into reading again when I've finished with uni in a few weeks. There's some Bukowski on our book shelf I can't wait to get stuck into!

  3. Because the books are Escape from reality. Ticket to freedom.

  5. Advice that I certainly need to make note of. I really do. I've tormented myself so much thinking it's me that's hiding away when really they haven't made any effort either. I've been reading lately too. It's definitely given me a different outlook on the world - particularly spiritually. I hope you're well sweet. I really do. xx

  6. This is such a beautiful post, I sometimes feel i get lost in my own worlds when I'm on my own taking photos - in much the same way as you. I'd love to be an avid reader but being at uni has completely ruined it for me :( x

  8. it's so easy to fall into other worlds and like them better, want to stay. i know i've spent enough of my teenage years feeling like every moment is surreal and make-believe because of the time spent reading and imagining everything.
    and i think i've found a balance, but it really doesn't taken much to get lost again.
    in all honesty, i still see everything real as a story, acted out. but i think that's okay as long as it's not bad to you, or for you, personally. xx

  9. I love when a book is so good you get sucked right into their world and forget about your own. Those forget-me-nots are just beautiful :)

  13. Pretttyyyy (picture, words and appearance!). Your words are very true, I too used to drive myself sick with worry when people wouldn't bother even texting back (at all), let alone wanting to meet up. It got to the point where I had a bit of a "fuck em" moment and decided to involve myself in reading, crafts, films, hobbies to fill my time. Now, funnily, people seem to make a tad more of an effort, and actually im quite content even when they dont.

    I LOVE your glasses, where are they from? Mine are falling appart so im due a check up!

    I go through phases with reading but am completely engulfed in my current book and can't wait to go to bed every night and read a lil more.

  15. Lovely post. Reading is such an effective form of escapism! I just wish I didn't have so much dissertation reading clogging up my 'real reading' time x

  17. I just spotted the Bukowski and you immediately gained brownie points, he has to be my all time favourite American poet!

    This is a great post and so poignant, the speech is something I should begin to live by for certain.

  20. It's funny, I picked up my first book "for fun" today in ages- finally have time to read again now that exams are over. Books are pretty powerful sometimes, huh?

  21. Reading is the perfect form of escapism isn't it? Gorgeous words and gorgeous outfit :)

  22. Keep on reading and don't let the isolation bother you! It's a wonderful thing to be able to remove yourself from the outside world, whether it's for work or play, I know a lot of people who cannot find that same solace in a book. ♥ Claire @ Jazzpad

  23. I have really enjoyed catching up on your past few posts girlie. Your pictures are always beautiful, and your words make me smile. I feel like I get taken off into another little world of nice things and adevntures when I come to read your blog. Please dont ever change ♥ I also learned the tough lesson lately, that you shouldnt reserve a space in your heart for someone who doesnt want to stay there. Makes me sad, but its very true xx

  24. This is something I've learnt over the last couple of years. Some people are not worth the effort, and it is sad when you realise you've wasted time on someone - but ultimately it means you'll end up with people who care as much about you as you do about them. Escaping through reading is most definitely a positive thing! You can get away from reality and focus on something enjoyable for a few hours. It's good for you, don't stop!

  25. saw this and thought of you & your costumes - I think its more of a sleeping bag, a little bit scary looking but the idea of a big bear sleeping bag is pretty cool

  27. Sorry about the delete above, was signed in on our work account!
    What a lovely post - glad you are back on the internet again! I know exactly what you mean about reading. I read on the train on the way to work and I totally lose myself in the book; when it's time to get off the train I always feel like I'm being jolted back into reality!

  28. This really made me smile. I love reading (apparently I can read 17.4 words/second!!) and there's nothing better than snuggling up with a book :)
