Hey, adults of the world

How about instead of making kids terrified to ever fuck up

You teach them how to cope with the aftermath of fucking up and fix it as best they can

That way they’re not so overwhelmed with anxiety every time there’s even so much as a chance of making mistakes that they never try anything and dread making decisions because of it

Ignoring your passion is slow suicide. Never ignore what your heart pumps for. Mold your career around your lifestyle not your lifestyle around your career.

Well, it’s relative isn’t it… What makes me happy may not make others happy… but I’ll give it a go…

In no particular order…

1) The Boxer - Carbon leaf - http://youtu.be/RxpDvGl4FmI  start 2:16 at unless you want to hear “Banish Misfortune” as well :) this one is my fave version of it.

2) Mary Mac - Great Big Sea’s version http://youtu.be/c6TukZyXcAY if you aren’t up and bouncing, you are dead inside….lol

3) Real Gone Kid - Deacon Blue http://youtu.be/aTt9FSHaP7Q

4) Babylon - David Gray http://youtu.be/4hAE2ueGOpE

5) Brandy - The Looking Glass - (it’s my favorite song - it doesn’t have to be anyone else’s :) ) http://youtu.be/N-tRXewCAmU

Because it’s been a while………

and Ronnies… that is all :)

Name: um.
Nickname: Col
Birthday: 9.14 (so get ON IT, y’all)
Gender: female
Sexuality: mostly uninterested in labels, to be honest. I fall in love with people, not bodies, and I’m pretty sure if I fell in love with someone who wasn’t the gender I usually go for, I’d figure out how to work out the mechanics to create physical intimacy with my beloved. (WOT she said…)
Height: 5’6
Time Zone: Eastern Standard

What time and date is it there?: 20:49, Tuesday, 26 August

Average hours of sleep I get each night: 5-6
The last thing I Googled was: Hummingbird Bakery in London for cupcake delivery to a lovie

My most used phrase(s): at the moment — “BRILLIANT!” “are you fnng kidding me?,”- usually at work and a heavy dose of good old fashioned Baltimore “Hons” for good measure.

First word that comes to mind: sleep -  (I should be catching up on it)

What I last said to a family member: It’s frustrating
One place that makes me happy & why: Glasgow, and there are waaaay too many reasons to list and 2) EVOLUTION RECORDS in Lakeland FL,  see my previous post.  My daughter is a minority owner of this record store/performance space and it holds a great big honking spot in my heart, also for many reasons…they are in the process of trying to become a non profit performance space/recording space/record store and could use all the help you can give so…
How many blankets I sleep under: 1 Duvet

Favorite beverage(s): Diet Coke / Strawberry Daiquiri
The last movie I watched in cinema: How to train your dragon 2 - I had the 9 year old cousin for a week….
Three things I can’t live without: my notebooks, hearing my daughter’s laugh, my camera, my family, especially my sister and my friends
Something I plan on learning: to be healthier

A piece of advice for all my followers: Be lovely to one another, find your passion and, even if no one else loves it or even likes it, drink heartily from it. Be Kind.

I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain.

the worst way for friendships to end is for literally nothing to go wrong, you just stop talking. they stop messaging you to see how youre doing and you get sick of being the first one to initiate conversation so you just let the friendship go and wonder how that person is doing and never hear from them again

I am made for autumn. Summer and I have a fickle relationship, but everything about autumn is perfect to me. Wooly jumpers, Wellington boot, scarves, thin first, then thick, socks. The low slanting light, the crisp mornings, the chill in my fingers, those last warm sunny days before the rain and the wind. Her moody hues and subdued palate punctuated every now and again by a brilliant orange, scarlet or copper goodbye. She is my true love.
