Um, today I saw you sitting I'm degraves in the city having lunch with your friend, and I was so excited, I wanted to say hello but got really shy, but you're so talented and I love your art and thank you for inspiring me
I hope you don’t mind me posting this publicly, but its possibly the cutest message I’ve ever recieved !
Should have said hi! It’s lovely meeting people off tumblr and Instagram, I’m not scary I promise
how is ur family? i think they love u the most, cause ure truly incredible.. what they think about ur style,friends,tattoos..?are they ok with em,especially with tattoos?
I get along with my grandparents pretty well, and they’re okay with tattoos but I know they wish I didn’t have any. They’re nice, they always make it clear they just want me to be happy
I see how many great friends you have, and you have such a fun, creative, emotional and close life with them by the looks of it, and it's beautiful. I've just started my first year of Uni and I know everyone struggles finding friends just starting Uni but it feels all so daunting, I don't know how to start fresh with people I don't have a past with, unlike my friends from High School, who I'm drifting away from, so I feel pressured to find friends at Uni now. How'd you get where you're at now?
what a kind thing to hear! just as i read this i was sitting in the kitchen of my house - one of my housemates having just shaved my head and the other mixing persian organic henna hair dye for me. i am very blessed and have to admit even to my own pessimistic brain that life is pretty nice sometimes.
i hope i can be of some help, it is very humbling to be asked for such advice
personally, I’ve found university to be a pretty static friend making environment. I usually find myself making the best of the people in my class rather then being sincerely drawn to them as potential friends. granted that may just be me, but my advice would be to try and be friendly and see how you feel, but try not to think of it as a source of replacement friends for people you feel you are growing distant to. A better source of social interaction could be local gigs or art shows? sometimes i fid it hard to be social with strangers at these sort of things, but unfortunately you have to overcome those sort of things if you want to make friends.
if it helps, most of my closest friends i have now i met at tafe (a bit easier than uni as you have a set class of people and i was very lucky in terms of the people in my class) or through work! my friend dominique who i just moved in with i met as a customer in the clothing store i worked at! having a retail job defiantly helps build your ability to approach strangers. OH! also i have met some trluy wonderful people over the internet, whom i know i will have for a long time
its a shame to grow distant with highschool friends, but i think its important to seek out people who are passionate in the same ways you are, so as to place yourself in an environment that pushes you to pursue what matters to you the most.
and dont forget: if someone doesnt want to be your friend, then fuck them and they dont deserve you :)
