Note To Self

I've always been a note-taker and not just in the education way. Yeah, I always take notes in class and stuff but the notes that really matter are the ones I make at 2am when I can't sleep at night and the ones I take on the bus to and from school every day, when a random (potentially stupid) thought pops into my head. Sometimes I like to flick through my notebooks and note-apps and read over some of my past notes, reminding myself of bizarre business plans, good songs I heard on the radio and quotes that stuck with me. I might live to regret this but I think it's about time that I shared some of these notes with you. My current responses and comments are in square-brackets. 
Are you a note-taker? 

Date: Early August 2013
Goals for August...
Be impeccable with your word. Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid speaking against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.
You are an explorer. Your mission is to document and observe the world around you as if you've never seen it before. Take notes, collect things you find on your travels. Document your findings. Notice patterns. Copy. Trace.

Things I've Never Done...
Got a piercing, got drunk, smoked, tried an espresso, written a book, tried quinoa, drank Red Bull, been on a train alone, been on a date, went to Costa alone, written a song, went to the cinema alone, met my blogging friends, been to a meet-up/gathering

defeats the case for the lack of shits they give."

Hey Catriona,
you don't have to be a sarcastic bitch to be funny, not everything is "just banter" and there's actually a line that kinda shouldn't be crossed ♥

[1st class advice from a friend, after a rough few hours, 
literally on the night of NYE. love it]

Date: February 21st 2015
I had such a good night. Like, such a good night. It's becoming more and more obvious that I have a wonderful group of friends and nights like this show that. I'm really bloody lucky.

A couple hours later
I've realised that I actually really like who I am, I'm finally getting really quite confident and I really don't care what people think of me (most of the time). This makes me pretty darn happy.
[I like notes like these]

A table-top that pulls out from the couch like, under the seat. Amazing.

[wow I really love this]

I have a number of super-amazing business ideas on my phone but I'm not going to share them incase someone sees them, thinks "gosh these are some great business ideas" and steals them before I have a chance to do it myself. All you need to know is that one involves tennis, food and puns.  

Date: April 2014 but it's constantly being updated
People I Want To Have Coffee With
Harry Hitchens, Matty Healy, Soren Hansen, Jesse Eisenberg, KickThePJ, Joseph Trohman, Patrick Stump, Hayley Williams, Mindy Kaling, B.J. Novak, Tim Gunn, Ivy Winters, Sarah Kay, Phil Kaye, Lizzie Velasquez
[I genuinely add onto this list on a weekly basis]

 Date: unknown
A combination of all the music-related lists on my phone (there's about 6)

My Jams: Superheroes, Dammit Janet, Science Fiction/Double Feature, all from Rocky Horror, BACKSTREET BOYS, Hello I'm In Delaware by City and Colour [no idea what this is]
Band Names: Flynnery [wow catriona so many ideas]

[this is what happens on the bus in the morning]

The best thing on my phone is easily the track-list for the album I am most definitely going to make with my friend, Tasha, one day. We've had a 'band' since first year and we've already written a musical (an amazing adaptation of Brokeback Mountain), and multiple songs for our upcoming album. Again, I ain't telling you the name or the track-list incase someone sees it and grabs the amazing opportunity for global success.

My sincerest apologies,
