  • I have three lamps in my bedroom because my ceiling light hasn’t worked for a long long time and no one’s bothered to get it fixed. Despite the number of lamps I have around, I often light a candle when I write at night because it’s not so harsh.
  • One of my main goals in life is to be a good daughter. My mum deserves that and I like - always have, always will - living my life that way.
  • I’ve met some pretty awful people who have done awful things to me. Out of them all the worst person is my father. I will always tell people that just because someone is your parent, it does not give them leave to do things that you wouldn’t tolerate from anyone else and get away with it. Just because he was married to my mother doesn’t make what he did ok.
  • I often wish I was born in another time. ...

I really like Kitty as a name, I like the others too. I'm sick of being Kate, there's too many of them. Shame it's impossible to change people's habits. I finish school soon and get to leave almost everyone behind. I can change who I was bit by bit.

  • My hair - which is really dumb because I LOVE my hair, but sometimes it's being a pain, and there's so much of it.
  • My nails - also stupid, I have great nails that grow quick with good nailbeds but the fact that I have to cut and file them every other week so they don't get too long is annoying - I am a lazy person.
  • Uni - I wanted a tertiary education, I make the choice to leave my assignments to the last minute, I have no right to complain about this.

  • Broke down crying just prior to a lecture after seeing my best friend's mother, just because she's in France and I have never gone nine months without seeing her before (it's only been a few weeks so far) and I miss her and her mum reminded me of her.
  • Thought a lot about a boy who I once was friends with. Wondered how, out of all the friends I have ever lost, he is the only one I actually honestly regret and who I would give anything to have back. Apologized in my head for hitting him when we were kids, for treating him like crap as our interactions dwindled in high school - I don't remember much but I know I wasn't very nice, I think I took my problems out on him or something... I don't know. I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry. And I'm sorry we weren't better friends. (Beca..._never_ actually tell him in person that I'm so ...

  • I no longer have shelf space for my books in my room. I have piles lying around, but soon I'm going to have to keep some downstaris in the library.

  • He looks like me.
  • If we were twins he'd be the evil one.
  • He offered to bash someone up for me once, I don't remember who or why.

  • Books are like jeans - when you find the perfect book buy it when you first see it, you don't know when you'll ever come across it again.
  • Don't worry about multiple copies, I currently own three copies of The Great Gatsby , and I already plan on buying two more. Books are meant to be beautiful, so if you like multiple covers, or there's a special edition you really want, get it because you'll regret not buying it more.
  • Don't buy small copies of thick books - the smaller the pages, the more pages they have to put in and then you're just asking to have the spine broken the first time you open it.
  • Never judge a book solely by its cover: take a look in side and consider the composition of the chapters (do they immediately run on from the last or does each new chapter take a new page?), what is the for like?, are the margins too small?, is e...

  • Right now it's 11:00 pm and I'm upstairs in my room watching the flashes of lightening out my east windows. I think they're far out to sea because I can't quite hear the thunder and it's not raining. It very hot and I wish it would, just for the smell.

Things I dislike:
