Five Things + Five Blogs I Love!


The more I read about Ginsberg the more problematic he becomes. But I feel like I need to thank him for writing Howl and making it engaging enough for me to write an assignment on it that scored me 87%. Thanks Allen.

The new independent pizza shop that has just opened down the street from us who have perfectly mastered the vegetarian pizza. So good.

Reading Time.
Squeezing in some extra reading time. Although I really should be writing an essay instead.

Florence + The Machine.
Love her!

Sarah's Chapter
Lost in the Haze
The Quiet People

  1. Congrats on the high mark!! I really want to read some Ginsberg after seeing you mention him on here. My favourite moment was probably getting the go ahead by my doctors to go to Ireland this weekend :D x

    Josie’s Journal

    1. Thank you! Ahh yay, I'm so pleased for you! xx

  2. I adore Florence + the Machine! I'm so so excited for their new album, the songs they've released off it so far have been great!

  3. I love pizza, probably a little too much! Ah, Lost in the Haze is such a lovely blog too, I'm a fan :) xxx

    1. I don't think it's possible to love pizza too much, there's no such thing ;) x

  4. Thanks for the recommendations, I'm always looking for more lovely blogs. :) x

  5. I know what you mean about Ginsberg. Definitely a shifty character!

  6. I can't wait for the new Florence + the Machine album! Although I haven't been too keen on their new releases.


    1. I have a feeling it's going to be good! xx

  7. I love crystals too, I'm slowly trying to collect a few. I think they're just so gorgeous.
    Thank you for the blog recs! :)


  8. Crystals, oh yes I'm a big fan too! I'm wanting to buy a couple when I decorate for my window sill. Congratulations on your essay Jennie! :)

  9. yeah it's tough when people who's art you hugely admire have said and done really shitty things in their life. i think about it pretty often and i really don't have an answer for how to handle it, especially cause ginsberg is one of my favourite poets. i certainly can't defend some of the things he's done, but i mean, john lennon beat women - are we all supposed to stop listening to the beatles? it's really tough and i would never apologise for things like that but there has to be an element of separating the artist from their art because if they do horrible things it doesn't mean their art has helped or affected you any less, right? i don't know. anyway, reading, pizza and crystals are all wonderful things! :)
