When I can't sleep at night I try to imaging I am walking to the council flats my Nan lived in The Borough, London.

"I just don't THINK like everyone else" said the misfit to those boring fuckers
The kind of gang I want to hang out with
I was entirely sucked into the fierce marketing campaign... Its the most expensive coffee I've ever bought. I'm a damn fool.
She is the kind of drama queen that blows the small things up into something that need not be an inconvenience

I wonder .....
Aziz Ansari - Modern Romance
I've never had a portrait... My artist of choice would be Picasso
Urban Camouflage for those fragile days
I'd hold you all night and make everything bad, sad and painful disappear... The power of an embrace is nothing short of a phenomenon
For tall women high-heel shoes bestow both vulnerability and rampant power at the same time... how is this?
Wednesday was better than today. Wednesday I drank tea by the glorious French sea and read De Botton... Today I descaled the toilet
Traveling solo aint for sissys
me by me
Sorrow can be alleviated by a bath, a cup of tea and a good sleep
