Hearing new music and instantly enjoying it is a thing we really take for granted. I like to listen to such a vast range of genres that I am open to listening to pretty much anything. Music communicates to us in a seemingly passive way, we hear it and we like or dislike it, and it becomes stored in our brains as such. A song or piece of music can mean so much more than we know.

‘Sometimes the changes are good. Sometimes you think they’re good and you end up disappointed. Other times you think life has handed you a lemon and it turns out to be a diamond. And there are other times when it just is what it is. It’s not what you wanted, but there’s nothing you can do about it, so you just accept what’s happened and go on.’

Melodie Ramone – After Forever Ends

I think I have come to a point in my life in which I know exactly who my friends are and though they be few, they are the only ones I really need. In a society filled with the focus of socialising on the internet and gaining friends on ‘social’ networks, real relationships are lacking. I know who cares about my well-being, who worries when I am stressed, and who will take time out to be with me. I really am thankful for good friends.

I finished reading An Abundance Of Katherines by John Green. At just over 200 pages this has been one of my shorter reads on my to-read list so I finally had time to purchase and read it!

Thoughts? A short and sweet book. As a Young Adult book it felt slightly juvenile to me, the content felt a little shallow and without a great amount of detail. I felt like there was not as much character development as there could have been, and the ending was predictable. As a young adult myself, I felt like this book could have been aimed more at teens rather than my own age group. All in all I enjoyed the read and breezed through it in a few days. It was easy to pick up and leave off, and it was a comfortable and light read.
