Anti-Sad List

Untitled



10 things that I've been finding happiness in this past week. An Anti-Sad List, if you will. Expect more of these in the future - I'm trying to inject some more positivity into my life. And thinking about the little things in life is a pretty good place to start.

1. The new Fatherson album
2. This article on Delightfully Tacky re: body hair on women
3. Forum Cafe Galaxy Caramel ice cream (I have dreams about it)
4. Learning Photoshop, and being quite okay at it
5. Clear skies - both bright and blue and black and starry
6. Floaty midi skirts - I'm going to be buying lots more for summer this year!
7. Gilmore Girls marathons
8. My new tattoo - I can't stop smiling at it
9. Being able to have my windows open all day
10. Getting the last one on the shelf of my favourite yoghurt

A story about starting again (again)


I feel like I'm consistently writing posts like the one I'm about to write, but here we go.

I don't know how many times I've deleted every post from this blog/spaces of the internet that I've had, but it's a lot. This URL alone has seen this happen many, many (many) times before - so many that I've lost count.

But here on What Lisa Said, I'm starting over (again) and this time I want to make it work. I want to create some nice content for people (you!) to read and look at, and show that I can do this. I can stick it out (I know you're probably all laughing at me with that one..). That when I put my mind to it, I am capable of these things.

I want to gain confidence in standing behind and in front of the camera (something I really struggle with), learn to edit photos using Photoshop, maybe develop my writing skills a little, get inspired regularly and work on becoming a more creative person.

I'm nearing the end of my 2nd year of my degree, and I think this is a good time to start putting some proper work into this little space of mine. I want to try and document bits of my life again, because I really do miss doing that.
