things that are awesome
bowie's eyes: david bowie has anisocoria, which is basically a medical term for uneven pupils. when he was 14, he was punched in the eye during an argument over a girl called carol goldsmith, and the guys fingernail caught david's eye and dislodged something. he had two eye operations but the sphincter muscles in his left eye were permanently torn, making the left pupil remain permanently open. i don't know why i love this so much. eyes are really special and magical to me and this lovely little imperfection is so beautiful. i fall more and more in love with bowie every time i find something new about him. he's just so GREAT. can we be together now?
amateur gymnastics: i mentioned this here right at the start of 2012 so i don't know if you'll remember but i've been trying to teach myself to do the splits. it's not majorly difficult to do but it requires you to stretch every day and i've never been good at remembering to do something every day. i've tried and failed to learn the splits at least 4 times this year but i always give up. (i will get there one day!) something that really inspires me is peoples personal updates on their stretching journey, like on instagram or tumblr. the first picture is of this girl called charla and i LOVE her, so when she put this picture on instagram it inspired me to start split-training again recently. you can see charla's blog here, which you should, because it's pretty awesome.
kate frickin' bush: i don't even know where i can start with this but i think kate bush is pretty much the love of my life. she's so perfect and her voice and her music and her style and everything, i can't even write in real sentences any more. i just wish i was her. she's kind of everything that i love about the music industry and the fashion industry wrapped up into one perfect human being.
