I have an indomitable penchant for snail mail, that much is certain. the breath of ink against a crisp, new piece of paper. the mess of words, the tangle of stories and lists filling a page damp with personality. the image of excited fingers stumbling to rip open the envelope bursting with snippets of your life and what you love that you so painstakingly created over the course of moments in your spare time. sometimes i wonder why so many people gladly forgot and changed: to e-mails and whatsapp and twitter and facebook, for they are all useful, there's no doubt about that.

summary: Princess Winter is admired by the Lunar people for her grace and kindness, and despite the scars that mar her face, her beauty is said to be even more breathtaking than that of her stepmother, Queen Levana.
Winter despises her stepmother, and knows Levana won’t approve of her feelings for her childhood friend—the handsome palace guard, Jacin. But Winter isn’t as weak as Levana believes her to be and she’s been undermining her stepmother’s wishes for years. Together with the cyborg mechanic, Cinder, and her allies, Winter might even have the power to launch a revolution and win a war that’s been raging for far too long.
Can Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter defeat Levana and find their happily ever afters? -goodreads
ALSO CAN WE JUST TAKE A MOMENT TO APPRECIATE THE PERSON WHO ASKED ON GOODREADS: So if Winter is based off of Snow White wouldn't Cinder, Kai, Cress, Thorne, Wolf, Scarlet, and Iko be the 7 dwarfs???" HOW DID I NOT THINK OF THAT BEFORE?!

Over a year ago, in winter, I walked around town with my dad and took photos for my art project. My fingers froze, my toes almost froze, but I snapped some pretty pictures so I didn't mind. I don't know my way around town at all, it's too far for me to go just to explore on a free day, but not far enough that I've never been.

APRIL: it's time to fortify my revision cave and start studying instead of procrastinating, playing basketball, eating (and creating art of course). April brings rain, the occasional slice of sun, and stress. i am only scheduled up until the end of april [if i have time i will try to write some more posts] and please bear with my non-existent replied to comments and general disappearance on social media [instagram not included - i have no self-control when it comes to beautiful photos] - sadly my priorities are exams first, blogging second. but as soon as my exams are done and dusted, prepare for an explosion of creativity and new ideas and excitement [i hope]..
