Fairy floss love 

Peaches and cream and fairy floss shared with loved ones and carnivals and rides and happiness is what my sky reminds me of. Damn Sydney two outta two. A pink sunrise and a pink sunset 💗

REAL TALK

I have a profound distaste for cricket. I dislike the sport, I think it’s dry and boring and I cannot stand Michael Clarke’s face. I would much rather admire Federer’s fine form on the tennis court, or cheer on Dan Carter as he leads my boys the All Blacks to countless victories and of course ogle at Ronaldo and Neymar because they are damn fine on and off the pitch. BUT I SWEAR TO EVERY DIETY IN THE HINDU CULTURE THAT IF INDIA LOSES THE SEMI FINAL TO AUSTRALIA, I’M GOING TO LOSE FAITH IN A LOT OF THINGS. I CANNOT HANDLE THE DISAPPOINTMENT WHEN STRESSES ARE HIGH. DAMMIT SHARMA AND KOHLI GIVE ME THE SATISFACTION OF SEEING THE DISAPPOINTMENT OF AUSTRALIA LOSING IN A SPORT WE ALL KNOW INDIA IS FANTASTIC IN.

damn.

When there is a spectrum of colours across the evening sky, the next best thing to do after ogling at nature’s beauty is to try and capture even a Andre of its beauty:

   

   

I dream about living in other cities but truth be told, where will I find such daily beauty in my life?

Of texture and squares and places my feet took me

Today has been a very, very busy day. It began by me going to maths tutoring and then getting a hair cut. I’ve cut 4.5 inches off my hair and its so short now I can’t even. But all the split ends that gathered from stress and the dry grossness has gone and gah its so nice and healthy now. Yay for new hair!

Lighting though hahaha 

After that eventful morning, my sister and I went on another of our famous sister bonding days. We traipsed around the city and I had my first taste of Yum Cha before we walked off our delicious meals to the Art Gallery of New South Wales:

Hyde Park never fails to amaze me. 

The Art Gallery of New South Wales simply blew me away. It always does. It’s a tradition for my sister and I to visit the Art Express exhibition every year. This exhibition showcases the most talented, ingenious and unique bodies of work from the Visual Arts Course of the HSC. My sister’s avid love for art and my appreciation of the ideas and ways in which people express themselves without words for the most part has fuelled our interests and love for art. While my sister is simply a maestro with art and I oppositely cannot draw a straight line without a ruler, art has truly allowed us to both explore our passions and bring us together in sharing our love for the Art Gallery:

Being in this exhibition space allowed me to immerse myself in the joys of creation and be inspired by the impassioned dedication placed in these works of art. I was simply blown away. I always am.

We then traipsed into the classical, European section of the gallery, showcasing paintings and sculptures from the 16th – 21st centuries. While the depth and breadth of these artworks astounded me, what continuously caught my eye were the elaborate frames that held these precious stories:

It truly has been an exciting day. We finished the day off with some amazing coffee and sat in QVB chatting for some time before buying flowers, because why not (:

It’s now time to relax with a movie I have to watch for extension english. Having fun and doing something educational. I’m winning at life.

Today was an amazing sister bonding day.

Praise the mighty lords because I finished my midcourse alive (ish) and well. Still sick but that is ok haha. I’ll power through (:

Clearly I am overjoyed to have finished half of year 12.

Between a spectrum 

The skies gracing my bedroom window this morning are somewhat symbolic of a thought process I endure to maintain in the majority of things I undertake: there’s more to life then the spectrum of colour we’re presented, and even in times where we think there are only greys in our lives, there will always blues and yellows to shine through.

Modern day romantic antics 



Studying for my extension one mathematics exam on Friday just got next level romantic. Sitting by torchlight and falling heart first into the simple joys integration. I’m so glad I studied for my modern history exam which is tomorrow, this afternoon 

Xx Simi 

To be honest 

I’m being quite frank when I say it’s impossible to focus when Sydney skies are so on point. How am I meant to learn and revise for modern history and English and maths and economics when my skies look like this?

The sky looks like mango and peach sorbet 😍
