Reasons why I hate the night

12am is the time of night for silly texts, and when normal people say goodnight

1am is the time of night for finishing that homework you've been avoiding

2am is the time of night where your demons come out for a midnight snack

3am is the time of night for crying, wall staring, and longing for love

4am is the time of night for hating yourself, and your lack of sleep

5am is the time of night for fitful sleep, and scary dreams

6am is the time for morning, fake smiles and sleepy eyes

Some random photographs of my spring so far
Shopping in alleys.

Teacups at Wedgwood

A good cupcake depends mainly on how its icing looks

Lunch at a Japanese restaurant

My penpal sent her first letter to me all the way from Perth! (My very first penpal)

New read: Company Magazine High Street - love the spreads inside!

Got a manicure: O.P.I. Kyoto Pearl 

It rains pretty heavily here, so here are the birds still chilling when the lightning strikes and thunder sounds
