I love all of your diary entries every week! They are very relatable to me! thanks for sharing your stories!
Britt- may I call you Britt~
This is so frustrating to read. I find myself thinking, “Why does she do that? She’s an amazing, talented, beautiful person.” And then I’m like…”Why do I never say this for me?”
Naomi – I feel like you’re writing down my own thoughts – I am so excited for the summer, to travel and be alone and meet new people far away, mostly because I feel SO trapped by the itsy bitsy social group I find myself in here at uni. I love my friends but I hate feeling that my association with them is beginning to define my personality, because that’s so limiting and, you know, inside I feel so EXPANSIVE(!!). We are so many people all at once!! thanks for writing down what I wish I could say. <3
Instead of “do not, do not, do not” try “I am, I am, I am”. Your a fucking poet, write I am poems in your head.
I should try being a tourist in my own town. It sounds like fun!
I just imagine you as a young Sylvia Plath. Everytime wednesday comes around i’m excited because i feel through your diary entries i can be closer to her.
Your observant, critical, detached yet involved way of writing about your experiences and your country/city living angst just draws so many parallels for me with her :)
I mean this in the best way possible, as in you can just tell you were made to write and use your own experiences to create your art,
Thank you so so much Charlie, that is a comparison I am not worthy of! But your comment is very touching, you the best xxxxxxxx
I can see this comparison very well.
That’s hard, Ruby. Beautifully said.
I know people like you, Britney. Wow.
