Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplacable spark. In the hopeless swamps of the not quite, the not yet, and the not at all, do not let the hero in your soul perish and leave only frustration for the life you deserved, but never have been able to reach. The world you desire can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours.

More of me, myself and I

Day #31: A picture of yourself today (bored at work)

Day #32: Something you collect - Magazines... This is a small idea of the magazine archive I have living at my mums house, (please note, this doesnt include over 2 years of magazines that currently reside with me at my current home) One day I hope to have a library of vogue magazines in a parlour room where my friends and I can drink cocktails and read vintage fashion mags!

I also collected most of my pointe shoes! You spend your whole childhood dreaming of being able to wear a pair, they are the epitome of grace, beauty and being a "real" ballerina. Even when they wore out they are sometime hard to part with.

Day #33: Something you made: This is my Australia day fest I cooked!

Day #34: Something that makes you smile: The other day my Dad sent me this picture of my baby brother, he looks so much like me I cant help but smile when I look at it. I wish I knew him better (just like I wish I knew my Dad better)

Day #35: A favourite movie that you own. I couldnt chose one, I have too many, here is a stack of my all time favourites (minus Beaches and A chorus Line which I couldnt find tonight!)

Day #27: The shoes you wore today

Day #28: The shirt you wore today (Charlie wouldn't keep his stupid fluffy head out of the photo)

Day #29: Take a picture of a flower (This is the only plant life I have in my house)

DAY #29: What you ate for Breakfast


A gift from a friend: Danika brought me these beautiful tiny clogs back from Holland. I love them!

A gift from family: Since last time I posted a picture of a gift from my mum, this one is from my godmother This is a Sleeping Beauty jewelry box that plays music from the Tchaikovsky ballet, always makes me happy and I love still having it next to my bed.

A weekend in the city

Your favourite outfit. I resent this cos a girls favourite outfit changes all the time, however, I remember buying this dress from Kate moss TopShop and being so proud. To this day it is still on of my favourite dressses. (I have a picture of how it looks in full, plus the only picture I can find of me wearing it, I obviously own the black version)

The best day in your life: Basically every moment I spent with my family when I didn't appreciate it at the time.

A picture of my cell phone (I had to skip the report card one cos I dont have any of that stuff anymore)

A CD that you own: A weekend in the city by Bloc Party (all my cds are in my car so I just picked one)

A school picture (this was all I could find, at least Im in a uniform right?)

Favourite purchase: Right now, my macbook (I would say Charlie, but Benny paid for him not me)

Some you give away...

Your favourite board game (I dont play board games anymore, but this was one of my favourites as a little girl)

Something I hate: ANIMAL CRUELTY! (I couldn't post actual pictures of tortured animals cos I cant look at them myself)

Your Childhood home: I dont actually have a picture of (stole this from google maps)

Something embarrassing in your room: A Faberge Egg my mum gave to me which plays the tune of "you are so beautiful to me" (I secretly love this, as corny as it is, because this after everything I've gone through with my mum I know she loves me)

Your Pet: Mr Charlie Bear (taken this morning asleep on my pillow)

Wise words

My name is Lucas Scott. I'm a senior at Tree Hill High School. I play basketball - at least I used to. I have a girlfriend - at least I used to. And I have a best friend. Tree Hill is just a place somewhere in the world. Maybe it's a lot like your world, maybe it's nothing like it. But if you look closer, you might see someone like you. Someone trying to find their way. Someone trying to find their place. Someone trying to find their self. Sometimes it seems like you are the only one in the world who's struggling, who's frustrated, unsatisfied, barely getting by. But that feeling's a lie. And if you just hold on, just find the courage to face it all for another day, someone or something will find you and make it all okay. Because we all need a little help sometimes-someone to helps us hear the music in their world, to remind us that it won't always be this way. That someone is out there. And that someone will find you.

There are moments in our lives when we find ourselves at a crossroads. Afraid. Confused. Without a roadmap. The choices we make in those moments can define the rest of our days. Of course, when faced with the unknown, most of us prefer to turn around and go back. But once in a while people push on to something better. Something found just beyond the pain of going it alone. And just beyond the bravery and courage it takes to let someone in. Or to give someone a second chance. Something beyond the quiet persistence of a dream. Because it's only when you're tested, that you truly discover who you are. And it's only when you're tested, that you discover who you can be. The person you want to be does exist. Somewhere on the otherside of hard work and faith and belief... and beyond the heartache and fear of what lies ahead.

You dont need to have ever seen this show to understand the above.

Its not always about me

Its meant to mostly be about fashion, random dancing pictures and my emotional moments where I feel the need to vent my crap to the world wide web. Ive been doing a great deal of venting lately, so here is some fashion as well.

Days 9 - 12

A talent of yours... I chose a past talent (dancing) and a current one (cleaning)

Your bedroom in its current state (trust Benny to NOT make the bed today)

Favourite food (Mum's pasta bake)

A prized possession (Charlie Bear, who no doubt will feature a lot in this photo challenge)

Another day, another few pictures

Favourite quote in your own handwriting

Something you love: EVERY DOG IN THE WORLD!

A picture of the best moment in my life (I dont think I've experienced this moment yet, but the feeling I get in a moment like this is pretty amazing)
