summer in the city

Some pictures of my sister from when she was here.


So this summer I decided to spend it  in the city. -well, not the whole but most of it- 
I wanted to invest my time on doing things on my own. Reading, watching movies, discovering new / listening to old music, making art and things like that. Cultivating myself.

And I'm doing okay so far. Well, I didn't really manage to do half of the things I wanted and most of the time I've been complaining about being lonely and missing my family and the sea, but I guess I've now come to a point that I'm comfortable being by myself and trying to make the most of it.



I have been listening to a lot Belle and Sebastian lately. I've always liked their music but I never paid too much attention to the meanings of the songs. And I am really glad I do that now, because it feels like I can relate to the majority of the songs in some way.



I've been thinking, if my life had a soundtrack, well it would be a B&S song, with upbeat, toe-taping melody and bittersweet lyrics. And I'd play it again and again as I looked dramatically out of the bus window, and maybe I'd let some tears roll down my cheeks, and then quickly sweep them so that nobody notices. 
That's basically what I always do anyway. looking out the window, overthinking and crying in public transportation is like..my thing









I don't know if you noticed but i changed the header and the side link-buttons. I've been meaning to change the overall look of my blog for quite a long time but now that i did i'm not so sure about it. I mean i like the new header, it's cute, but i think it kind of gives a childish look..i don't know.
Tell me your opinion on this

Have a nice day
(it's actually almost 2am here, but I couldn't sleep)

collages and thoughts



Hi
Sorry the last post was a little too dramatic. All I do nowadays is whine.
I'm still terrified by the fact that I'm aging and I find myself incapable of doing the things that I want, and I don't even know who I am;  but I'd rather not think of it.

Sooo, it's been a long time and I have so many things to post.
Quite a lot have happened that I'd like to share on here. I don't know if I ever mentioned that I went to -not only one but 2!!- amazing concerts. First was Daughter and Beirut, and then Sigur Ros, DIIV and the Black Angels. I've wanted to share this lovely experience for a long time. So keep up for this post, it'll be up soon ;)








Next thing, is this kind of zine that I made for my art class.
It was my latest obsession with Katrien de Blauwer's work that led me to create some collages and bind them all up in a little booklet. In fact, the whole thing is a kind of ''collage''; a mixed work of 
cut outs, photographs and small paintings/drawings.

Here are some of the collages. Everything is written in greek though, I doubt if you understand anything.





I was thinking of maybe making an english version and selling some copies. Would anyone be interested in purchasing it however? We'll see...
In fact I'm also working on new illustration series and I'm actually planing on making a decent e-shop and maybe sell some prints, posters, t-shirts and i don't know suff like that. I'll show you the new illustrations in an upcoming post.

 I've been wanting to open this e-shop for a long time now, and I hope that this time I manage to make it happen. Please support me in this :)

21

Hello there

 Okay I won't start with all the apologies for not posting as I did before. It's because I came to the realization that I'm an awful blogger and I know this is just another thing -among the many- that I can't do well. Another thing I tried and failed. 

My time is limited, my imagination is unreliable and basically my talent in writing and photography is pretty mediocre...so :/

I started this blog with a lot of aspiration and expectations but I never really managed to make things as they were initially in my mind. I wanted it to be a motivation to keep me creative. But, being me, I often gave up. It has now become a sort of photo diary that I update every now and then. But, unfortunately, sometimes it also serves as being a reminder of what a failure I am.




I guess I stopped comparing myself to others and obsessing about being like them. I mean in a way...
I focused on trying to be the best..me. And I promised to myself I must do everything to be this person. My ''best self''

But what if I'm incapable even of being this. Why is it so hard? And why do I always feel the need of validation from others to make me feel enough..? Why don't I ever feel enough?  Why do I always feel like a failure..? Why?
Why?
why...?



Oh, I forgot..tomorrow I turn 21. What joy! 
So, Happy Birthday to me...

the day was rainy so she stayed inside



Hello there

I know, long time no see. I have no good excuse for that. 
I just got busy, bored and uninspired.


Many things have happened since the last post.
It would be pointless to mention them.
As any average person, I've had my ups and downs. Mostly downs, but I'd rather not analyze...

But I've become more outgoing and that's a good thing I suppose. I mean for a lazy house cat like me.
The weather is already too hot to stay inside. It makes me think of summer and I don't really like summer to be honest.


Okay except for today. Today was raining cats and dogs! 
I stayed in listening to music all day long. The perfect lazy day.
And I took a few photos too. Like the good old days.



So these were some stills from my day. My life is nothing but a film though...
*sigh* if only it was
there would be a little action, a little drama maybe a little romance...

Anyway, whoever is reading this 


have a nice weekend
