girl v. writing

There’s something poisonous about love that I just can’t get enough of. It entered my life a mercenary, a stampede through my heart when I least expected it. I was a lost soul that had sunk into a deep depression, dropped two dress sizes, dropped out of university and fled far away from the promising future I had always worked towards. Then I was smothered by an enchanting satyr and once I was enticed to the other side, once I had tasted love, I just couldn’t waste another day of my life without it. So I followed it. I stalked, vehemently pursued and hunted it down like prey.

Girl v. Disneyland

Last week I lived out a childhood dream of mine, I went to Disneyland! It was so much fun despite it being the only day that week it rained. The rain just could not dampen my spirits! I never went as a child so I felt I had finally completed "childhood". (Does that mean I now have to grow up for real?)
I loved the tackiness of it all; the faded facades, the screaming girls chasing Daisy and Donald around the park, the outdated rides. At one point we watched a 3D musical starring Michael Jackson (1980s Michael), it was literally like stepping back into the 80s. The park definitely had a "20th century vibe" but I think that was what made it so great... Like the way riding in your 13 year old Peugeot 106 holds a special feeling in your heart no matter how many sports cars you take for a spin ;)
