Consumed by Thoughts

I havent posted in a couple days, I have been so busy I feel! How have all of you been this week? What have you been doing? Today I woke up at the early hours of the morning to help put together some skateboarding ramps for a youth festival that youth with a mission (Where I work) is a part of tomorrow. It was so hot. I felt like popeye though...I was showing my muscles. Okay, im kidding, Im the weakest thing ever and could barely do anything - but its the thought that counts!



I feel like my mind is going a thousand miles an hour right now. Do you ever have these opportunities to do certain things but you just dont even think twice about it because you are absolutely terrified? Im going through that right now. Im trying to figure too much out at once, im driving myself crazy! Sometimes I get upset with myself though when I turn down cool opportunities, because Im like "Im 21 - why wouldnt I do that?!" you know what I mean? Please tell me you know what I mean! :)


On a funnier note, this afternoon I called my 3 year old friend and pretended to be Santa Claus. A lesson I learnt : This is the worst thing you can do to a young child. NEVER DO IT. I tried to lighten up her spirits after she found out it was me instead of Santa by getting my other freind to call her and be the "Koolaid man"..yeah, dont do that either. I just didnt have good ideas today!

Hope you all have an amazing night and weekend. Hugs and kisses. x



  1. Hey Kate. Did you have a good two day break from blogging? I missed you. I checked to see if you had posted or not... but yay you're back :) Oh if you ever get a new opportunity, I say go for it! Don't miss these opportunities, because you never know what that experience can do for you! Did you get a haircut? Love the florals of course!

  2. Those tights are cute! I'm loving the colour of those shoes as well.

    I'm doing revision notes today! Woohoo. I recently nearly missed a minor opportunity (like getting a fringe haha!) but I decided to go through with it and I'm happy that I did! Just go for it! Doesn't matter what age you are. My nearly 60 year old mum decided last year to go hiking up the tallest mountain in Malaysia, just because she wanted to! I consider that inspirational for me.


  3. Thats super cool! thanks for sharing. Your note gave me inspiration. Im glad you went through with the fringe...they are the best! Have a good night. x

  4. Very nice!
    Are all your photo's analogue or do you make them look like? I like it a lot! :)

  5. I know what you mean, only kinda the opposite. I always end up saying yes to all the opportunities then drive myself crazy cause I have too much on my plate! Your outfit is so darling just like you :]

    My goodness, Gavin would have loved to build a ramp! In fact, he built one in his garage a few months ago...still not sure what he was thinking.

  6. i love your floral top! and i can't believe you called a child and pretended to be santa! it's actually pretty funny. i'm trying to keep my kid from believing in him because i don't want to deal with the fall-out when he realizes that santa isn't real. but i know some kids who would just love to have santa (real or otherwise) call them on the phone! so funny :)

  7. Love this outfit, it so cute!


  8. Love this pretty outfit esp the tights :)

  9. Awww, sorry your Santa Claus phone idea didn't turn out, but like you said, it's the thought that counts, right? And yes, sometimes I have freaked myself out to the point of paralyzation trying to make certain I don't miss any "opportunities" - do I definitely know what you're trying to say. I think you're doing pretty good -- working in Australia with such an awesome organization!


  10. You are too funny... LOL the kool-aid man?? Did she bust through a wall and say "oh YEAH!!" I sure hope so. I want those tights real bad. They're super cute. And I know how you feel. I'm 22 and I keep thinking I need to run around and jump off buildings because my bones will just be practically brittle by the time I'm 25. But I try to hold back on the super crazy things I can do ;)


  11. Love the whole outfit! I can't even pick a favourite piece, its so lovely :)
    x x x


  12. how cute, those tights *wordless*

    Sounds like a fun but slightly stressful time. I can say I've regretted a lot of things I've done and not done, sooo... go with your heart and your energy level!

    as for my week, my doggie's having a nightmare next to me right now and I'm about to get off my duff and go thrifting, so it should be a great day :]
    Happy weekend!

  13. heheee. It's probably mean to laugh, but I couldn't help it when I read the Santa bit! And the Kool Aid man?! That'll cheer any kid up! Poor little one.

  14. i love your post..
    you are so cute..:):)

  15. very nice ♥ i love the tone you give it to your photos, if you don't mind, how you do it? any tutorial?

    I know what you're meaning it happens to me, but i'll say we have to take the few chances we have without complaining or thinking it so much! happy weekend :)

  16. i know exactly what you're talking about. <3

    ohhh no! haha, poor kid! it's a little bit funny, though. ;)

    adore this outfit, by the way.

  17. Did you cut your hair?

    Man, I know what you mean about being young and thinking, "I'm only _____; I need to do this". But most of the time, I just want to feel young, know what I mean?
    I'm not in college, and I just ork and live at home, busy myself with to-do lists and things, so sometimes I think, "Today I'm going to be so young and not make my bed", and give myself stupid little exercises to try to feel like a young person. Ha ha!
    That probably depicts me as the lamest 18 1/2 year old?

    Anyway, you're cute and have good thoughts as usual. Jeez I love your site!

  18. I DO know what you mean. I'm not much of a risk taker and I always hate myself for it.

    Love those tights! Where did you get them?

  19. Thank you for reminding me I am lovely ! (the little note below "post a comment") .

    I have always made a point to TRY to obtain new opportunities whether or not I feel prepared for them. This is called refining, right? It helps you grow. I'm a pianist, and there are so many times where you feel insecure. But you have to "whistle a happy tune" (reference to The King and I) and forget that you are afraid!

    I recently applied for a killer position with the la jolla music society ... and guess what? I have an interview coming up! Never be afraid to try!

    Cute outfit, but of course.

    blessings, my friend.

  20. - as always, your outfit is lovely.
    - I just adore that you called a kid, pretending to be Santa. Even though it didn't work out too well, that's just a great story.
    - you got your hair cut! ♥

  21. I love your tights with those cutoff shorts. :} And it's cute you pretended to be Santa even if it didn't work out so well; your cousin will always remember it!

    And I know what you mean about turning down cool opportunities. Sometimes I feel like I should take more risks and just DO instead of watch.

  22. I was given an amazing opportunity once and i turned it down for a boy.

    Ever since, I've been trying to throw myself at every opportunity and i think being young means you're allowed to be a little selfish.

    go where the wind takes you!

    it might be somewhere wonderful

  23. Awww, I used to love my calls from santa! Haha.
    I like your shoes.


Thankyou so much for reading my blog. Every comment means so much to me, and I treasure every single one. Come back soon <3
