brightest light in my life

I guess I never realised how completely exhausted I am until I came home and fell into bed. But really, I'm drained. I've been mostly running on enthusiasm and for classes, caffeine, for weeks now. For all it's worth, I know that it isn't really true, yet I sometimes feel like these are the best days of my life and the happiest I've ever been. (I say it isn't true because we live in moments; this life isn't a thread but waves that we surf on.)

There has been event after event, three essays in two weeks, long walks, sleepovers and late nights spent with some of the best people in my world. I've been involved in the organising committee of the events, and despite all the worries -which others do for me because I have one cool head- and doubts and running abouts, the events seem to always turn out really well and more importantly, fun! It definitely helps that your favourite people are there. I've wrapped myself in fairy lights and tied an enormous bow on my head; laughed; squeezed myself between friends; teased and got teased; fraped my friends' facebook accounts in the most innocent of ways when they left their laptop open in front of me; wrote essays calmly through the dead of night until I heard the early chirps of birds at dawn and still got top marks for them (nobody ever said life was fair, but the best of life isn't even about justice); chatted with friends till three in the morning before curling myself up in a borrowed blanket on a sofa; filmed in amazing weather (and sunlight so although my fingers still froze from this winter wind and my shoulders ached from shooting hand-held for five hours straight, I can only feel blessed) with one of the loveliest cast and crew one could hope for; celebrated friends' birthdays; and I could go on forever.

I apologise for neglecting my blog, but I have also seemed to neglect writing which never lasts long because time after time, I still find myself writing in my sleep. The sentences stroll past my mind and I know that I have to get them down so fumbling in the dark for my journal and a pen, I'll spend at least twenty minutes putting them down in ink under the glow of my ipod screen -which provides the right amount of light as turning a normal light on would blind me after those hours they'd spent in the dark.

In a weeks time, I'll be flying again and it'll be the fourth country I visit this year. As excited as I am for that, right now and here is pretty incredible too. After all, things that unfold perfectly in their own time are some of the best ones, aren't they?

Anyway, before I get all my other photos edited, here are some of my favourites taken recently with my phone camera and processed with instagram (I'm not a fan of phone cameras, but you can't deny that they are convenient. As for instagram, that things is addictive!). Follow me @miniverse if you're on there too; most of the photos there are landscapes as I use them for a writing project I have.
