Before I was watching Dazed and Confused, you know, the 90’s Cult stoner film? If you know it then Alright alright alright. Onwards with the post. In the film there is a scene near the end that shows a group of friends in the middle of a football field. They are talking about their lives and what their futures entail. Within this scene is a few memorable quotes. One being this Where I live is quite a deprived area. I am certainly not saying that I live a deprived life as that is not the case, in fact I believe it is quite the opposite. In a world full of pretentious biggots and me disliking the ideology behind being “wealthy” I would say I live a very fortunate life. Despise all this there always seems to be somthing missing. The urge to do somthing for me. I believe this is down to the concrete jungle on top of a great big hill that I live in. I do not feel like I belong here. I know various different people who have moved to many different places and are loving life. Whether they return back to their origins is another matter. I am talking about right now and the not so distant future. Back to the film. Do I want to be “stuck in this place” no. I certainly do not want to say “I did the best I could” because in this modern era the world is minuscule. Everywhere is accessible for everyone and I believe the “best I could” where I live is a mere knife in the ocean.
I do not know where I want to go or where I will end up, all I know is that I will go where I feel I belong in life.
But for now, I will reiterate another quote from that scene.
“You just gotta keep livin’ man. L-i-v-i-n”
When will the younger ones of the family become more self sustained and no longer as reliant on loved ones? We all try but, I believe never. Appreciate what you have. Hope you all had a great Christmas.

I feel adulthood has sprung upon me so quickly. When did this become so relevant?
Some people say one of the greatest lines from one of the greatest books. Some say an overused quote on tumblr. Whatever your opinion is on this, I love it.
One definition of “infinite” is “impossible to measure or calculate”. And this portrays the way in which Charlie feels at that moment in time. And in context, whether you are reading the book or watching the films the feeing this gives you is wonderful.
Nothing but happy and heartwarming connotations.
If you have not figured it out already I am talking about the perks of being a wallflower.
Untill next time.
Some of you may be wondering as to why the name of my blog has changed. Well, I have been waiting for the perfect name to spring in to my brain. Thus being the reason for it just being my name, Untill around one week ago when I had a slight epiffany whilst listening to my favourite artist.
If you do not already know “Time is dancing” is a Ben Howard song from his second album. If you do not know this song or you do know Ben Howard I urge you to listen, he is hands down one of the greatest musical talents and each one of his songs are beautiful and meaningful. Anyways the song is about holding in whatever intense or complicated feelings two people may have for each other and just enjoy the brief time they get to spend together. In the title of the song “Time is dancing” the word “time” represents your life and the word “dancing” means fun and happiness.
So there is the meaning behind my new blog name. Life is about having fun and being happy.
Untill next time.
When people say I have changed, I simply say “I am finding myself”
