Like, hate, love. Watch Cassie's therapy video.

Fill in 12 likes, and 8 hates, like in Cassie's therapy video. So here's how mine turned out.

Acabradabra, wow!

I like boys who open doors
I like water paint
I like wearing clashing patterns
I like knowing where everyone could go if they were able to choose one country- I'd go to Vietnam.
I like French films
I like sleeping on peoples shoulders on the bus
I like fish fingers
I like sharing personal jokes with strangers
I like the smell of roasted coffee on the stove
I like thinking of people as books, with their lives having chapters, and that the world is a big library
I like good journalism
I like rain, especially that misty sort
In some ways, I love everything. It's less, it's less of a thing to like, it's less distinct, it's less particular, I like things that I like but I love everything. There's more choice in like, cos even the worst things have things you love in them.
I hate arguing but I love arguing in the rain 
I hate it when I don't understand things, but then i love finally understanding things after so long of not
I hate people who can't see the good things that don't actually have anything to do with them- I swear those are some of the best things
I hate depression; the word, the meaning, the weakness, the bitterness, the sadness, the can't-do-anything-about-it-ness
I hate judgement 
I hate people who say "I wish I could do *** " but haven't actually tried doing it
I hate competition, but in a way i love it, like in sport and in charades
I hate thinking about what I hate.
"I hate this, wow...

My cousins blog. Fab photographer. First post;

 "I feel that life isn’t supposed to be at home sitting on your ass but you should be getting out their and feeling the wind, so i hope this blog can help and inspire people to get out there and fly with the wind"

So. Do it.

Realise that hope is a luxury.

Is it not the biggest luxury to be able to see? Today I saw a woman with a blind dog and a pram. She was a blind woman, with a baby, crossing the road. I said out loud "that's beautiful", but it's beyond beautiful. She captured the absolute epitome of wonderful. It's such a luxury in itself to hope for some things. We sit here complaining, or perhaps not even complaining, perhaps you sit there and anticipate seeing Paris or Rome. We're so lucky to hope for those things. Hope is a luxury. All we have to do is wait, and make choices. Some people don't have the option to hope and don't have any choice.

Be a slave to the Sun's magic

 Sun? Summer. Picnics. Bike rides. Frujus. Cloud watching. Loveliness. Christchurch Airport. Earthquake. Magic. Help. Rebuild. Beautiful. Homes. Heritage buildings. :( ...
