I love the edges of this one’s wings.
"Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through."

My Tumblr keeps reposting the same text post every time I reconnect to my WiFi so now it looks like I’m adamant that everyone sees my post about university.
4 so far. Maybe that’ll just be my blog now. That. Forever.
I got my grades back for my final year of university and found out I’ll be graduating with a first.
It feels so weird to finally know that that part of my life is over but also exciting and I never expected to do so well.
Potential dickhead post but I’m happy with what I got.
I was watching Orange Is The New Black earlier and got to the last episode and it finished and did the whole credits ending. Then my Netflix went black all dramatically and I was left thinking ‘What the hell kind of ending is that to a series?’ all full of disappointment and then, yeah, I just realised that it was my Netflix going weird and I have two episodes left.
