The day I was kitten as a cat...

I am still crazy busy at the moment - balancing university and two jobs is hectic but I love always having something to do. These are my favourite postsecrets from the selection this week, go and have a look for yourself. The first one is not something I agree with, or (obviously) a secret of my own. I believe marriage is sacred, I can't imagine marrying having even the slightest sliver of doubt that it wasn't the right thing. I understand that you can't always control what happens in life, and often people can grow apart - but I wouldn't enter into something so important if I didn't believe in the relationship entirely. The second secret represents my how I feel a large amount of the time. I worry that I might just get everything I want and still I won't be totally happy. In fact I believe that will be the case, because when are we ever totally happy? I don't see it as a bad thing anymore though, because the bad times and the unhappiness I have suffered through have made me a a stronger person.

The day I saved your life...

I don't know why the theme this week on postsecret was libraries, but I liked it. The library is one of my favourite places to seek solace. Studying on Oxford there are some incredible libraries that honestly I could get lost in for hour upon hour. I love the smell of library books, they seem to tell so many stories. These are my two favourite postsecrets from the selection this week. I have always thought libraries were incredibly sexy places - and the film 'Loverboy' only serves to confirm this to me. On my last day in Oxford I actually made a whole load of secrets (ones I never showed you, or anyone) and deposited them in secrets places, including library books. I hope someone found them, I hope they took something from them, I hope the poems I love could have saved them in the same way they saved me.

The day I recalled...

I loved the valentines postsecrets from Sunday. There is something so fascinating about an event like valentines day, it brings out a whole host of human emotions and no more clearly is that expressed than on postsecret. These are my favourite three secrets from the selection this week. Oh, and my own valentine? It was lovely.

The day before I started my placement...

Everything has been so hectic recently, what with my two jobs, university, christmas and new year. I start my placement in a school tomorrow so I will be there every day 8-5 for five weeks - truthfully, I am terrified! I am trying to get organised for all the work whilst also balancing work and seeing all my friends. The best news came on Friday though, my sister is having a little baby boy and I couldn't be happier for her. This is my favourite postsecret from the selection this week, go and check them out for yourself. I spend a strangely significant amount of time considering what would happen if I died. Who would come to my funeral? what music (if any) would they play? Who would cry and who would feign sadness? I might just leave you with some words from a great man:
I hold it true, whate'er befall;
I feel it, when I sorrow most;
'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.

The day I was a tourist...

I discovered this strange little postcard in a little shop near where I live. There is something really creepy about it, not least because I think the children pictured are brother and sister. I'll be back soon, enjoy!
