a little different

I’ve always felt a little different from my friends and I think I’m finally starting to realize why. From a very young age I was surrounded by adults and very rarely kids besides when I was at school. My parents were selfish, my Dad was money hungry and didn’t care how much we all had to sacrifice for those extra dollars and my Mum did whatever he said. Being surrounded by adults definitely rubbed off on me, I formed a very strong opinion on anything and everything from early on in life, I became curious and soon learned that asking questions was the only way to learn things. Being with adults all the time meant I was always listening to adult conversations which obviously included adult topics… I was only 5 and a half when I asked my Mum what sex was. I think the one thing I have to thank Mum for is for never trying to hide me from anything. I know 5 is a young age to even know the word sex let alone have your Mum explain what it is but she wasn’t going to lie to me.

It showed the most around my friends how mature I was for my age. School bored me beyond belief and all I wanted to be doing was traveling the world and meeting new people, experiencing anything but regular every day life. The one thing that I’ve always tried to defy is life… or the life our government think we should live.

Graduate school, graduate UNI with a degree, get a job that leads to a career, work for 65+ years, retire, live off the doll, die.

Who the fuck wants that for a life. I want to live, I want to wake up in a country where I know no one and go explore without a map, I want to eat food I can’t pronounce, I want to see the Eiffel Tower (cliche I know) and I want to have breakfast at tiffanys, Heck I want to own Tiffanys. And not just a cheap ass necklace, who says I can’t ever have that $75,000 ring I google search every few months. We’re taught to do whatever the system tells us and I’m making it my mission to do anything but.

I need someone who loves intellectual conversation, who wants to get down to the nitty gritty, I’m sick of the ‘hey how are you, wanna send me some nudes?’ How about a ‘hello, what do you want to do in life and more importantly how are you gling to do it’

So thought I would share with you my favourite tunes right now. In the last year I feel I’ve grown to enjoy music less from artists who appear on the charts and more from artists making their first hit on to radio stations like triple j, and I find I love them even more if they’re local or from Australia. I just have more respect for artists who go out and work their asses off trying to get recognized.

1. Take Me Over – Peking Duck

2. Breezeblocks – Alt-J

3. Beggin For Thread – Banks

4. Partition – Beyonce

5. I Wish You Would – Taylor Swift

6. Mother & Father – Broods

7. Smiles Don’t Lie – Thundamentals

8. Latch – Disclosure

9. Take Me – Rufus

10. I Want You – Alison Wonderland

What are you listening to? If you’ve got any tracks you think I’ll love then drop them in the comment box and I’ll be sure to give them a listening to.

Hey guys, sorry for my absence.. again. I’ve been busy working and trying to get a tan, which I have failed miserably at. Still don’t get why pasty white skin isn’t in fashion haha. Anyway today is the 1st of December which means Christmas is less than a month away and I’m doing what I usually do around this time of year.. freaking out about not having enough money for presents. I wish I was more organized but in classic ‘Morgan form’ I haven’t bought presents for anyone.
So instead of finding things to buy other people I’ve created a little ‘wish list’ of things I want to find under the tree for me on Christmas morning. Dreaming of course.

What are you wishing for at Christmas time?

I’ve taken off the invisibility cloak

IM BACK! … even though I never meant to intentionally disappear for a good few months. I wish I could say I’ve been busy but lets cut the bullshit and just put it out there that I’m not the best at sticking to something. I last left you with my post about Europe and how it was finally me booking my trip… that lasted a whole of 2 months and here I am telling you that as much as I want to be jet setting off to my dream destinations, this dream has been put on hold. Don’t get mad, it’s only so another dream can begin. I received my working overseas visa for 2016!!!!!!! Moving to Europe, holy shit. I don’t think I’ve fully wrapped my head around the concept yet either. – I will put a post about this individually because I feel there is a lot more to say regarding this.

Let’s take a recap of the last few months, with a big help from instagram.

The Southbound lineup got announced and I almost had a heart attack when I realized I could see Vance Joy live, and spend a whole weekend away down south with my friends, some ciders and a shit load of live music, could it get any better? I don’t think so, even though I’m yet to purchase my ticket (I’m working on it) I’m still counting down the days. check out www.southboundfestival.com.au  for dates and the full lineup.

I went to Hooch (an event at a local night club, filled with fresh squeezed 18 year old hoes and 23 year old local boys trying to get some new pussy) with the girls from work, my usualsand a pair of ‘Miley’ buns… that led to a large consumption of $5 hooch punch and a few good hours of rinsing***

I then took YOLO to a whole new level when two friends and I purchased some second hand Kanye

IMG_2598 tickets an hour before his concert. Would kindly like to thank that very random guy for putting his three tickets for the one and only YEEZUS TOUR on gumtree and selling them for $80 each and providing me with one of the best nights of my whole life and dare I say it, best live performance I’ve ever experienced. The atmosphere at Perth Arena that night was something I’ll never forget. Not one person in their seats, everyone making triangles and screaming out ‘nigga’, not to mention all the A grade men that crowded the place. There is a reason people call Kanye West a God, he literally blew all my expectations out the window and I’d happily relive that night over and over again.

I finally, after a year of Ashley begging me gave in and cut my hair… all of it.. off.. to above my shoulders. I’m the first person to admit that I hated it (sorry Jess) but I’ve gotta give in and say that now its grown a bit I’m completely in love with it- I even dyed it brown, but that lasted all of 2 weeks and I went back to my favourite red locks.

The day all Apple lovers were waiting for came… the iPhone 6 graced us with its presence. If I said I wasn’t let down I’d be lying, however I could never commit and make the change to Samsung so in true Morgan form I went and bought it, a 16GB iPhone 6 in IMG_3326the Gold- I now have an iPhone 6, 64GB in the grey coming in the mail.. so I guess you could say yet again Apple have managed to drain my bank account.

After deciding not to venture to Europe next year I did what any of you would do…. after saving for months I went on a shopping spree. Asos obviously was first on my list after having deleted the app so I wouldn’t give in. I blew over $200 in about 10 minutes. I then bought more shoes than I have room for and went for a sneaky trip to Camilla.. www.camilla.com.au check her out. She is Australian and makes the most beautiful pieces of clothing I’ve ever laid eyes on. From the moment I walked in I knew I’d have to buy something and so I did. $400 later I walked out with my Kimono and since then things have never been the same.

I also took my shopping spree to MAC, but I’m going to post that on it’s own because a MAC haul deserves it own post. ‘Nuff said.

Halloween hit and so did the fact that October is over and Christmas is only 6 weeks away. I’ve never really been a fan of Halloween but the girls from work wanted to go out so I did, der. I went as a candy skull (so original right) but I’m just gonna put it out there that I was the best fucking candy skull in the whole of Perth, thanks to my friend Kim Leeming and her knack for make-up. The night started with ciders, it then led to too many smirnoffs, a bunch of slut dropping, pissing in a sink, falling over and grazing my knee and ended with losing my purse which contained all my cards and at least $400… FUCK MY LIFE.

So there you go.. not a lot has happened at all, but I promise to keep you more informed and post a whole lot more.

Much love always, Morgz x

Rinsing***- a form of dancing that is actually more like throwing yourself around to the beat of the music and looking like you’ve taken a shot of acid.

Europe is finally calling me

That is right everyone, as of Monday last week Europe was officially booked, for me!

JMK_01

A friend from work and I have been talking about it for so long and when the summer dates and prices for Europe 2015 were released we totally ‘yolo-ed’ it and went in to book. An hour and half in a travel agent, some date picking, rock paper and scissors for which airline and a $200 deposit is all it took to book a 27 day, booze filled, island hopping, backpacking, bucket list checking, life changing tour. In 301 days (June 30th 2015) I’ll be embarking Australia for the countries I have lusted over for quite some years.

We chose to go with Topdeck’s ‘ Summer Fun and Sailing’ tour.. https://www.topdeck.travel/tours/summer-fun-and-sailing

If anyone has done this or any other contiki/topdeck tour and you have any helpful hints to help make it the best it can be please feel free to let me know.. for instance, do I take a backpack or a suit case?

friends.. ha ha

Lately I’ve had a great deal of trouble trusting people, yep even my nearest and dearest. Trust is rare and in the words of Lady Gaga and Beyonce

‘trust is like a mirror.. you can fix it if it’s broke but you can still see the cracks in that mother fuckers reflection’

It was brought to my attention a week or so ago that one of my friends had told another friend a situation of mine which I’ve only shared with two people, gob smacked doesn’t even cut it, neither does disappointed.. I guess you could say I’m hurt. Because of being stabbed in the back so many times before I’ve become a very private person, I like to keep things between me, myself and I. Now I’m left questioning my my choices in who I trust and who I don’t, this also has me looking over my friendships… Why am I always the one to put in effort? I’ve noticed a few things before now but I’ve always swept it under the carpet; like why am I the only friend who ever offers to pay? I know this is stupid and it’s probably my own doing but whenever a friend of mine can’t afford something I’m the first person to help them out… no one could ever call me selfish, but no one ever offers to help me. No one ever offers to pay for my food or my festival tickets and to some extent I understand why, I work full time and they don’t but I pay rent and they don’t. I pay for my car and they don’t. I pay for all my groceries and they don’t. I pride myself on being independent and not needing help from anyone but sometimes it’d be nice for a friend to say ‘let’s go here, my shout!’

 

I’m probably sounding a little pathetic, I know. I guess I just feel like in some friendships I’m always the one putting in effort and for a piss ass 20% effort in return!

august wants

I’ve decided that from now on I’m going to post a polyvore collage of all the things I want for the month and aim to buy at least 3 of the items. I am useless when it comes to buying things I actually want and instead of saving for a week or two I just spend my cash on stupid impulse buys that I usually only use once or twice, hopefully this will help me work towards things that I really really want, within reason of course (because I really want a Hermes bag but that isn’t happening any time soon)
