Old owner, since when was there an owner change? :o by Anonymous
She still has access to this blog! We’re friends, we met on tumblr, but she got so swamped by everything she just didn’t have time anymore so now I run it for her. :) All messages from her old followers/anon’s get passed to her though, so she does still answer asks from time to time. It’s been a while though, probably a year?
OMG YES I never know what to wear on the first day ! by Anonymous
Tell me about it, first day’s just stress me out like why can’t we be on break forever.
where are you from? by Anonymous
I’m not too sure you would know it, it’s an awfully small town. Mill Valley, CA? It’s just off San Francisco. :)
If I knew the day I'd personally wish you happy birthday on the day :) and I do hope it's a sweet 16 for you :) by Anonymous
I’m turning 16 on August 11. :)
I hope it’s sweet too, birthday’s usually suck for me. Thank you though!
A little baby elephant stumbles into your askbox, holding a small letter in his mouth. He hands the note to you, “I love you. You are a wonderful, lovely person.” Pass it on to the first ten people on your dash anonymously. by Anonymous
I don’t know why that made me smile so much, but it did. And I love you for it and you’re lovely. Thank you (‘:

Have a merry 16th easter in august :) by Anonymous
why can't you just tell us how old you are? instead of stupid crap about constraints and judgements. by Anonymous
Well if it means that much to you, I’m turning 16 in August. :)
How old r u？ by Anonymous
I don’t like how age constrains you.
Like if I told you I was 12 you’d completely have a different impression of me than if I told you I was 17? So I guess for now that’ll remain a mystery :)
i don't think i have ever adored a blog as much as i adore yours. thank you, it's truly lovely. by Anonymous
thank you :’)
what is your name? x by Anonymous
I’d like to remain anonymous if you don’t mind :)
But I have a really strange name, those kind of silly names no one can ever pronounce.
I'm drowning in my thoughts about my life, and how it doesn't measure up to my perfect idea of what my life should be, as I move into my twenties and wait for the light to wash over me and make happiness. All I'm left with now is light-washed pictures of my parents in pure bliss as they moved about their lives as young people, drinking tea in cities and biking to California, and I'm nostalgic for it. I'm drowning in it. Pure misery. For no reason I just thought you might understand. Love Natalie by Anonymous
so much more than you’d imagine hahaha.
Hi Natalie. :) I love getting things like this that are so personal and so real and so, idk full of emotion. I get it, it’s like you’re missing something that was never yours and you ache from longing to be a part of that moment. And you realize you’ll never get to, and you feel a sense of loss for something you never had. Well, here’s a virtual hug, you seem like you need one.
I get sad sometimes because I’m missing out on so much, things that I will never do, places I’ll never see, time’s I will never experience. But I guess that’s life. You can be nostalgic, but don’t get caught up living vicariously through everyone else and wishing you could be a part of it so much that you forget to live your own life and make your own moments.
I guess all of us are just waiting for life to begin, and our expectations are so high sometimes we disappoint ourselves. It’s okay though, stop waiting to be happy, if we wait for things to happen we’ll spend our entire lives feeling empty and unfulfilled. You’re twenty! You’re at the pinnacle of this huge adventure of life, enjoy it, sieze it. Go out and do stupid things, things you’d normally never dare to do. Talk to people, explore, create, make your own happiness.
I think we could be great friends Natalie,
reply me please? (sorry I took so long I haven’t been on in a while)
thank you for sharing your life with me
hey rune! I have this really terrible problem with jealousy, and I know it links back to a lot of my own insecurities and that it's really not okay to feel this way all the time?? or take it out on others?? so I'm trying to become more confident. do you have any tips? thank you! by Anonymous
jealousy’s inevitable. It’s human nature to compare yourself to others and to want to be perfect, and you wouldn’t be normal if you didn’t have insecurities. I guess you just need to know that everybody’s insecure, even the most perfect people have something they don’t like about yourself. It really is okay to feel jealous and insecure, don’t beat yourself up about it but try to change it! (-:
You just need to be confident because confidence is attractive! You don’t have to be confident immediately, you just have to remind yourself and pretend to be confident and eventually you’ll get there. Look, the biggest favour you can do the world is be you, cos we kinda need a ‘you’ and there’s only one you! You’re all kinds of amazing and you need to know that! If you’re insecure about something, think about something you really like about yourself! There really isn’t a set definition of perfection, for all you know something that you really hate about yourself is considered really wonderful to someone else. Insecurities and jealousy will only make you unhappy, and you can choose to be happy and rid yourself of the negativism. If you catch yourself thinking negative thoughts, remind yourself YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL and YOU ARE LOVED.
If you’re insecure about your friends, then remember if they didn’t like you they wouldn’t be friends with you, it’s as simple as that. If it’s about your looks, well then you obviously don’t see yourself very clearly because you’re gorgeous. Don’t focus on the things you don’t like about yourself, focus on your good parts! Stop thinking you’re insecure because if you think it, you’ll be it, so think confidence! You don’t need to be perfect in every way, just perfect in your own way. (:
You're so nice on tumblr, why are you such a bitch in real life? by Anonymous
Okaaaaaaaay, uh, that’s awfully nice of you to say, that I’m nice on tumblr hahaha thanks.
hello! just wanted to say that your theme formatting's weird. :( I can't see the pictures properly cause they are overlapping for some reason. Thank you! by Anonymous
Eeks photoset’s mess it up I think. I have no idea how to fix it hahaha, I’m completely clueless (sorry I’m allergic to technology) BUT I WILL TRY! Thanks for telling me (“:
