This week I turned 25. I KNOW. 25! Believe me, the giant ticker to 30 has started counting down inside my head already... Every day it's looming closer! It's a strange feeling - in some ways I feel old before my time (I enjoy an early night and hanging out with my cat more than is probably normal), but in so many others I still feel like a teenager. Recently I've been feeling VERY gawky, unsure and anxious in myself and my decisions. I thought I'd grown out of my horrible emotional/social awkwardness that plagued my late teens and early twenties, but it seems to have come back with a vengeance. I hope this is just a neurotic glitch brought on by turning one year older and not a hint at things to come... Hopefully by 30 I'll have figured it all out!
Besides having a mini mid-life crisis, I also caught the Lurgy and lost my voice completely for three whole days which was pretty inconvenient to say the least. Other than that things have been quiet. I half considered it, but in the end I bailed out of TITP cos I couldn't really be bothered with it and none of the acts bar Florence really caught my eye. I DID go and see The Amazing Spiderman (in the midst of my voicelessness I might add, which caused minor mortification on my part) which was EPIC, despite a few cheesy lines... Spidey: I've been bitten. Gwen: Me too... BOKE!
Here's a few Instagram snaps from the past wee while...
Also, enjoy Lykke Li covering Fleetwood MAc's Silver Springs. I've been obsessed with this tune for ages now and I can't WAIT for the tribute album - Just Tell Me That You Want Me - featuring MGMT, The Kills, Best Coast and The New Pornographers, to come out in August. I still think this'll be my favourite though. Can't get enough of her... And have you seen THIS?! PLAN.
