Just thought I'd post some pretty pictures I took here, there and everywhere.
It was my 17th birthday on Friday - will post some pictures of present as soon as possible. I really shouldn't even being doing this since it's exam time but oh well :/ Procrastination pro here.

Corgi puppies. Why are you so cute?
The art effect.
My newly cleaned desk (a procrastination effort).
Casual stretches in endless countryside traffic.
Dreamlike clouds.
Stunning sunrise - travelling from Durban to CT,
Elgin/Grabouw country club early in the morning. Not a breath of wind.
A good old regatta.
On top of the world (in this case, Signal Hill).
Take me back to Summer, please? Muizenberg beach on a good day.
New Year's Eve - playing with sparklers.
Picturesque Mozambique.

Well this was sufficiently inspiring - hoping to kick English Literature's ass tomorrow.
Please don't use any of these photos without asking since they are all mine. Thanks :)

Lost For Words.

I cannot get over Young The Giant's 'in the open sessions'. The talent of these guys...phenomenal. According to me, some of them are even better than on the album!! I've loved them for ages, but these videos never cease to amaze me.
Can't help smiling every time i see them.
But here are my favourites. You really should do yourselves a favour and go look them up. Youtube. NOW.


Guns Out


I Got


I would obviously put every single one of these on here if I could. But I'm actually supposed to be studying now - life is good. 
By the way how amazing is the lead singer? His name is Sameer. He's awesome. And the guitarists. My lord.

The Art of Procrastination

Today, purely to avoid my art and other school work, I had a sudden urge to make some origami cranes to hang up in my room. Sadly though, when I tried it for myself, I didn't get my piece of paper to look like a bird which was all in all sad.
If anyone who is reading this knows how to make one, please do tell me how.
Here are some awesome origami things though; clever people.

These are super easy to make. Find instructions here.
Made of dollar bills. Incredible.
