photos from a college outing


our installation tree from friday.

Happy Monday people! I hope your week went well.
It's been a tough week for many of my friends and I as the inevitable has come and they are headed to uni. Whilst I'm doing an art course this year, I can't help but feel as though I am missing out on adventures my friends are undertaking. It feels like a whole world I'm missing out on; a whole step. Talk about fomo.
Regardless, my week of college was interesting. We went on a few trips and did some 'exploration' and 'reflection' lol. I am enjoying it a lot more than my first day. I've made some amazing friends of whom I have a lot in common with which is so nice. It's also so nice to be at home. I know I slate it all the time, but I am so not ready to leave yet. I need to collect myself together, to feel ready. I don't want the half-hearted move to uni- when I leave home; I want to leave home. I want to purge my belongings and leave for a bit. 
I feel like it's all or nothing and at the moment I am far too immature. Whilst I cannot wait to go travelling and to see the world, for the time being I am more than happy listening to stories of friends who have been and reading blogs about adventures. 

I have Mondays off college, and I have had the most boring day. I spend it supermarket hopping with my mum and sorting out my mac and putting photos on a hard drive. I was planning on filming a Youtube video today too, but I am finding myself with no motivation at the moment and very little time. How do people have time for everything? I would love to do Youtube but I struggle so hard with imagination behind videos. I find blogging to be versatile, but when I'm on camera my words don't come out or I'm too self conscious.
 I also feel it to be cheating if I ask you for video requests.


I recently re-watched the 2014 BBC Kate Bush documentary, and I've fallen in love again with her. I hold her to be a huge woman crush of mine; I love how she keeps her private life private, very rarely appearing in the spotlight. Her creative endeavours are always so unique and I adore her voice. 
You can watch the documentary below: 






the beaut kate bush as a child 
When Tash and I went to London, we went to the the Pink Floyd exhibition and it was incredible. There is something about that period of British music that is soo influential and important. I particularly admire Kate Bush for coming along, albeit it a bit later in the 80s, for her position as a woman in the industry. She gave a voice to a female stories, and the vulnerabilities women and men face. (See Army Dreamers and Hounds of Love.)

I hope you enjoyed this rambly post and if you do have any video requests...!

  3. Hey Lexie, first of all thanks for your lovely comment on my blog and I wanted to say that I really like yours too! And it's funny because I currently want to go further into fashion photography - like not the ootd kinda fashion photography but more like a indie kinda photography (idk how to describe it) and when I was looking at the photos of you I thought that your style would really fit into that but then I read that you're from the UK, so not really that close and I was so sad, haha. But anyways, I get the feeling of being left out - my friends all have been studying something science related for a year now and I'm just about to start a design major in uni after taking a gap year, but I'm sure you'll be alirght as soon as you settle in your new life! :)

    1. Ah thank you gal! I know it's so annoying as I feel we could so do some shoots; if you're ever in the uk let me know. That's exactly the same with my friends and I; hardly any of them are doing something art related! x

  4. YOUR NEW BLOG DESIGN- it's fab!!!! supermarket hopping on a monday sounds much more appealing than sitting through biology and spanish lessons when all you want is your bed. I get what you mean about moving out but wanting it to be the "real deal"- as dramatic as it may sound, I empathise with you.

  6. as always, beaut photos, I love these rambly posts so much. Definitely got the fomo vibes, even deleted all my social media over the weekend so I didnt have to look at them all having fun (oh lord, how dramatic). College sounds really really great, such a fab way to use your year! I resonate with the 'loving being at home' thing, definitely not ready to leave the total comfort but nice to know that, when next year roles around, I think I will be.
    Have a fab week x
