Have you seen the movie Elizabethtown? If you answered no, I seriously recommend you drop what you're doing and check it out. If yes, then you would be familiar with the scene where Drew and Claire talk on the phone for hours, about absolutely everything, after their first meeting the day before. As I love unexpected chemistry between strangers, this is one of my favourite movie scenes. So, as you can imagine, when I had a similar thing happen to me, I enjoyed the hell out of it. It's great when things like that just happen. Unfortunately, however, the call did not end with a spontaneous drive to meet each other and watch the sun rise. But you can't have everything, hey :)

That Girl's Got Potential.

I practice so much, so that someday, they will replace the word "potential" with "talent". Someday.

Time Keeping Kitty.

The cat that watches the time for me, because I never do :)
My mother was telling me stories this afternoon of when I was younger. It seems I've always been a slow poke!
Keeping an eye the time is something that I only do if I absolutely have to. It's so restricting..

Oh No!

So Kieran's art teacher let him borrow one of the school cameras. And so I'm waiting around to be in some shots for him, and while he sets up, I decide to check out the camera. And he takes a long time to set up, and I take pictures the whole time. And then I have trouble giving the camera back to him because I want to keep it. FOREVER! But it cannot be. So I return the camera to him and wish for just a second that it payed well to be a studying musician, so that my dreams of having a beautiful camera such as this for my very own, could possibly maybe come true.

I took a picture of my winter lover; this beautiful scarf (from my beautiful friend Luci). To my excitable, untrained eye it looks great, so I'm happy :)

Meet Gachapin and Mukku.

Next time you see a picture of the mascots for the Olympics in London 2012, remember what you see here right now, and wonder why the hell they decided to design their mascots as an ugly version of Gachapin and Mukku. I'm certainly wondering.

Looking Slick.

To say that Grace Slick was a bit of an inspiration to me wouldn't be an understatement, it would be THE understatement.

In other news, I actually found somewhere to get my film developed :)
I used to have to go all the way to Wynnum to get it developed, and now even that place shut down!! Silly people. But do not fret, my 8 followers, Cinta's Film Journal will return to it's original glory soon enough.

Trumpet on Lips.

I don't actually remember what it's like not having a trumpet on my mouth. Even when it's not there, it still feels like it is. Not that it's a bad thing! It's just a bizzare way to be.
Some women could say the same thing about men I guess :)

You know what’s really unnerving? A massive stack of books sitting beside you that you have to read and take notes from, which you then have to turn into an essay “in your own words”, however referencing every statement you make. The worst part is, that I think I would really like to read these books. Just sit down with a nice cup of tea, and slowley read them.

Time limits. Yuck.

Life After Death.

Q: Is there life after death?
A:"As a consequence of one's mere being, the world has forever changed. One's legacy is one's existence. Thus life after death." - Angus Sampson

Also, read this page.
You see those grey stars towards the bottom? Click on the fifth one, so that they are all gold and shiny. Thanks :)
This is why you should do it:

No, Way.

I can’t quite believe that tomorrow, people are actually going to hear our music. After writing music and lyrics for billions of years, I finally get the chance to perform it in front of a crowd. With a band. That are awesome. This is the kind of thing that you never, ever think would actually happen. So yes, it may be unpaid, and yes, it may be an audience of parents and students from my old school (who have actually come to see the teachers), and yes, it may be only one or two songs, but it’s STILL a performance, and it’s STILL our stuff, and there will STILL be people listening to it. And I’m still freaking excited, and I love my band for making it happen. Stephen for having the ideas, Toby for getting us somewhere, Charlie for always knowing exactly what to drum, and Evie for joining the band four days before the performance and being the missing (kick-ass) puzzle piece :)

Love x
