a few notes about me

Dear Reader,

there is not a lot about my character online as I am anonymous and wish to stay as such due to… reasons. anywho, I thought it would be nice for you to know a bit more about me. so, here we go!

  • as you know my nickname is Sam, which I basically use everywhere online
  • I am soon going to be entering university! it is both a crazy and scary thought
  • my favorite subjects would be math, art, english and history
  • I love animals! most animals I am just okay with admiring them with a screen between us, but I have recently been more okay with kittens! my favourite animals are horses and beluga whales
  • i love fashion and designing my own clothes and outfits. I do a lot of illustrations and sketches. especially all over my notes for school.
  • going along with my love of fashion, I also make some of my own clothes. I learnt to sew from my mother
  • I love writing. I have always kept a diary with me, although I am a little behind in writing
  • I always keep a journal near me incase I have an idea for a story, a poem, an illustration or anything
  • I love to read. my favourite genres are usually historical fiction, fiction, fantasy, biographies, poetry, adventures… I think I just like anything that is written well
  • I love watching youtube and my favourite channels to watch include, connor franta, doddleoddle, conan gray, chewingsand, daniel j layton, cayllles, banana jamana, notjustblonde, lucy moon, tessa violet and sooo many more. maybe i’ll make a post dedicated into my favourite youtubers.

Dear Reader, I hope you enjoyed learning more about me!

the not-so-good bit

the bad days and the days where you feel like you can’t do anything, that’s the not-so-good bit of life. unfortunately, we’ve all had them at some point in our life. sometimes they only last a day. sometimes a week. sometimes months. and sometimes even a year or two. I’ve unfortunately experienced many not-so-good days that sometimes all I wanted to do was just give up and stop trying to do whatever I was doing, or whatever I had to do. however, you can’t just pause and fall asleep. even if you take a rest or shut your eyes, the world keeps moving meaning you still have to do your part in the world. there will always be something bad happening that could potentially ruin your day or week or year. you have to keep moving. my advice is to take some time soaking up this moment and let your brain wander free. but after that, just start. start your homework. start cleaning. start doing work. just do something to keep you busy. there are going to be many negative thoughts up in your head, but try to keep busy and hopefully those will go away. i don’t remember exactly where I heard this but this piece of advice always stayed with me.

“there will always be negativity in the world and in your life. it is your decision to keep thinking about it and let it ruin your day, or to let it get to you for a second and then start moving. there will always be a little negativity in those good times, and there will always be some positives in the worst of times.”

personally, this has helped me through a lot. if I ever had a really bad day, at the end I look back to whatever happened and even just a small gesture from someone, a smile or conversation from a friend, the sun being out, seeing a beautiful moment occur, always gave me hope that something good did happen despite having a terrible day. so, thanks to all the little moments made between my friends, my family, strangers and even just with myself. thanks for the little cheer up. i needed it, and it helped.


ps. if this fails, put glitter on your face, and have a dance party. good luck beautiful.

august 2017 mood board



the end of the summer. only one month left, until a new start. a new beginning. new people. new places to see. new friends. new experiences. a new chapter in my story. changes are rough, and its hard to adjust. its hard to make new friends. and its hard to forget about the past and wish the people and setting was the same. this past month and this coming month so many changes are coming. re-decorating of the building we’ve lived in for the past ten years. the place i grew up. the walls and paintings are changing. the city around me is changing. new buildings. new businesses. new people. and most of all, the change of people around me that have been with me since day one. the hardest thing to let go. let’s hope these changes are for the better. only time will tell.

prompt: august rolls over and yawns. wakes slow and heavy, stretching like a cat. outside, the sound of birds, the smell of grass. august turns over in an empty bed. his eyes feel swollen and tired. on the nightstand, a note from july – no one carries light like you do. (found here)
