;;;;;;;;;;;; in which carla is in a coma because of the awesomeness. ;;;;;;;;

hello.
its been quite a productive morning, yes indeedy doody. 
This morning I was sad because i realised I have school tomorrow, which is pretty much the WORST REALISATION POSSIBLE, just under if you wake up and realise you are the last human alive and no internet has survived. 

I also realised its TAVI's BIRTHDAY today!!!!!! If this information is incorrect I will feel rather idiotic considering the ahem, video I made. 






Upon the billionth time of making this video, a realisation dawned on me that:
a) I may not be pronouncing Tavi's name right. So, in the song I say, Tah-vi and then Tav-ee. So there is a strong possiblity her name is complteley unrecognisable when I say it.
b) this song sounds like I found Tavi on a dating website and now I think about her all the time, WHICH IS COMPLETELY UNTRUE, OKAY????


In other news, I dressed today for a RAINBOW HIPPIE PARTY. I will be the oldest person there but by far the:
a) most likely to win at limbo
b) best dressed baby!

 this is a dinosaur excerise book I do writing in, I found it at my aunties house it is amaizng and I want to shout DINOSAUR PARTAY!!!!!!

in this picture I am wearing the AWESOME AND SKILLED Enid from ghost world  patch Antonia sent me, it looks really weird on ma bum, i just didn't know where to put it. 
 my butt looks massive here, its just the overalls, but I MAY SIT ON YOU!!!!!!!!!!

run!!!!
 trying to be cute. 


I am wearing: 
flower crown-by me
shirt- multicolores fiesta BABY!! I got it at my school fair $2.
jumper-vintage.
overalls-vintage.
alien badge- me
dafodill badge-found in my room.

ALSO:

I was getting super inspired last night over TOYKO FASHION WEEK! I am not usually one to actually:
a) know tokyo fashion week existed
b) know when it was

BUT:
I was casually surfing style.com to see if I could find these BETSY JOHNSON GUMBOOTS I scored yesterday, for free may I add. 

AND:
I was looking at all these japanese desingers with cool names and I found one of the coolest collections ever that I just have to share with you because it makes me want to: 
(are you getting sick of this yet?)
a) wear this to do actual excerise (!) ina super cute way
b) go live in tokyo and just steal peoples clothes. 


its called Mercibeaucoup. 
HERE GOES:





 the designer. 






its like, cute pirate ganster schoolgirl eskimo!!!! 

AND THEN: 
I found the photos of street style during tokyo fashion week and I almost had a heart attack and fell off the couch and then wanted to dye my hair and move to japan and make friends with all these people. 


AHhHHHHHH@!!!!!!!!!!!!














As soon as I can, I want to get my hands on FRUiTs, because it looks amazing. 

I am going to stop writing now because everything I say is nothing in comparison to these outfits!!!

time to take a ride, time to take it in a midnight eye.

hello.
I finally watched Ghost World last night, it was awesome in a mega depressing way and made me want  to dye my hair green. First of All: ENID'S CLOTHES AND ROOM OHMAHGAWD!!!!!!!

second of all: It made me super super super sad, not in the way moonrise Kingdom made me sad (mainly because everything was way too perfect and pretty and awesome), but in the way a suburban food court makes you sad. I think something I like about the city is that no matter rich or poor people at least seem to have a purpose, they know where they are going, they know which trains to catch and what they want. 

But in this movie it just seemed as if everyone was suspended in this world of mediocrity and boredom. Yeah, the suburbs are sometimes super cool in their daggyness and manicured lawns and stuff. And I absolutely loved how Enid and Rebecca were so free and followed people if they wanted and were confident with their personalities. But apart from that it was just like they were all on this un-picturesque highway that ended in  a dead end. It made me scared of leaving high school, even though I have a while to go. It made me scared to one day wake up and I'm 40 and bored and none of my sparkly dreams are reality. 

Anyway, it was extremely entertaining. The whole Seymour and Enid in love thing creeped me out majorly. i know that seems mean, but I am being honest. Enid peeved me off slightly, because she always seemed to make promises just for the hell of it, but then everyone else was annoying for kind of forcing her to go to college or get a job. 

The one thing that can be learned from this is GREEEN HAIR ROCKS MAN! seriously, wowowowowwowow. 









 And, my lovely best blogger friend Antonia sent me these lovely gifts:

you will notice among them, AN ENID PATCH and BADGE!!!!!!!!!



I also started watching, dah dah dah daaaaaaaaaa:
okay, I'm so lucky its on youtube, because the video shop would NOT have it and I have no idea whatsoever how to illegally download stuffff, apart from music. I mean, nooo, I buy ALL my music, yes definitely, stop lying. 

SO, i only watched two episodes because my darling brother wanted to do some trivia with me, and how could I refuse. (I whipped out my southern accent for reading the questions, i am getting quite experienced in the y'all department, if i don't say so myself.)

NO ONE DARE TELL ME WHAT HAPPENS IN FREAKS AND GEEKS. DON'T DON'T DON'T. SKYFALL GOT RUINED, HARRY POTTER GOT RUINED. seriously though, who goes and just says:             " DUMBLEDORE DIES." oh, what you didn't know that already, sorry.belive it or not there are people that exist who don't know dumbledore dies. 

SO far, I absolutely HATE kim and I love everyone else and I don't know why everyones so mean to that girl who plays the piano, Milly I think. ahhhh, its so good.
When Sam danced with that girl at Homecoming I was like:
This expression was necessary for many other moments during the show. 

Apart from that, here is an outfit, not amazing, but the top is new. 
I love docs because they make me look taller and whenever I walk in them I feel like I'm in a movie. 

The other day I had this old school hat on, and my face looked unimpressed and I was just imagining explosions behind me.

i'm not gonna lie, it was awesome. 



stuff;


my new ukulele, well I got it for chistmas, but isn't it preeeeeeetyy.



 In other breaking new I got a new beanie. 






FROM CARLA.

ps: tell me your interoretation of the bus symbolism in Ghost world. 






go on, it'll make me feel smart.

Teenage riot in a public station, Gonna fight and tear it up in a hypernation for you

 
 
helllllllllllo.
 
today I decided to be all grungy and 90's and wear my dad's super cool ripped jeans (that are now ALLLL MINE!!!)
So its the first of april,  I celebrated my new found creativity and plumber style by taking photos. Man, sometimes I wish there was just someone following me around, capturing candid yet somehow photogenic moments. for now, self timer will have to suffice.
 
 

 you know what, everyone, including myself, rants about how kitschy and amazing love heart candy is, but MAN they taste like medicine.
 

I've been getting into Sonic Youth lately and that kind angsty teenagerish stuff. I'm not going to lie, I honestly CANNOT STAND NIRVANA sometimes, I'm like SHUT UP YOU SUCK.
 
But then if I'm in this mood where I just want to cut up my clothes and dance around to really loud music, I will listen to Nirvana and Bikini Kill and Hole and Sonic Youth very loudly, normally in class. The other day my friends were getting told off in English and I was doing my work, but really I was ready to jump on the table and yell "SHE'S MY BEST FRIEND YEAH, REBEL GIRL, REBEL GIRL, REBEL GIRL YOU ARE THE QUEEN OF MY WORLD!!!" This would be accompanied with a triumphant air guitar solo and some tongue waggling action.
 
Instead, I just quietly rocked out in my head, while putting gun and poop emojis on my work and subtly making eye contact with some other kids, as my friends were trying to explain tumblr to our teacher.
 
 
 


 the book in this photo is a choose your own adventure space book I got.
 

yeah, I must admit, my knees were kinda cold.

also, I'm not gonna lie and say I NEED book recomendations, but I WANT book recomendations.
You guyz are all cool kids, what are so good, interesting, non vampire books I should read???
 
(please don't say the virgin suicides, it looks very etheral and dreamy and all that, but I am way to scared to read anything remotely related to anything even slightly creepy.)
CARLA
 
 
ps: you know whats a good band,  BUTTHOLE SURFERS.
nah, I only know one of their songs but I really just wanna be like "I listen to you know, Lana del rey, soft indie music and THE BUTTHOLE SURFERS BRO."
 
the end.
