Coral Pits

Lots of colorful internet odds and ends piled into one little hole on tumblr. I am 23, a teacher, aspiring writer and a part time idiot.


This was the first thing we did at college. We had to make a costume out of cardboard in 24 hours. We worked in groups of 4 and 5 and we were allowed to create anything we wanted. My group and I made a costume of the ancient Egyptian God Anubis. I think it look pretty darn amazing.


I was learning how to create a mold for clay sculptures so that I could cast the same shape multiple times. The white-is yellow stuff is liquid latex. I had to paint on six coats before covering it with plaster. Word of warning: Never ever paint liquid latex on your arm or anywhere you might have hair (a friend of mine did this to me). Not even hairs that are a few millimeters long will survive. Attempting to pull it is the most painful experience I can think of. 

Visiting friends

A tomato rolled under the cupboards. Harley has stuck his head under them to try and reach it. He won’t move, any if I try and retrieve the roaming tomato he growls.

Sunday afternoon cheese festival. I say why not?
My mum is brilliant.

Procrastinating like I am seventeen again.

5 good things about me.
1. I try to be kind.
I will always attempt to be as helpful and thoughtful as possible. I have always felt like we are on this planet to help each other. I will always try to put others before myself and be as kind and helpful as I can.

2. I am reflective on my behaviour and I will always apologise if I am wrong.
If I have a disagreement with someone, I will always think about the way I behaved and wether I was fair and correct in my argument. If I have behaved unfairly I will apologise and learn from it. I hate it when you are arguing with someone and they do not do this, I will always try and be the best person I can be and try to and treat everyone how I would like to be treated.

3. I am good at my job.
I am devoted to my job, even though it is not an easy profession to choose. I have had to go through a lot of brutal honesty from myself and others to get to where I am today. I have had to do a lot of crying and picking myself back up but now I have huge confidence in my abilities, not only at this moment (I am of course NOT perfect) but also in the future. I want to be outstanding at my job and that drives me to reflect on my practice and improve. I am immensely proud of how hard I have worked and how far I have come. I love it when schools personally ring my employers to say how great I was and that they want me back. I have a huge amount of professional pride, and I think my drive to be an amazing teacher is one of the things about myself that I like the most. #PROFESH TO DEATH.

4. I am creative.
I love to write. I have always had a very vivid imagination since I was a small child, and this helps me greatly. I really like doing crafty stuff an experiencing new creative things to do. This creativity is great when combined with work, but it also means that I am up until two in the morning making giant lollipops out of fishing nets and cardboard.

5. I tell people I love them and I mean it.
My friends, my family and my partner all hear this on a regular basis. I want people to know that I love them, I want them to feel valued and cared about. Every time I leave I will say it. I won’t ever tell anyone that I don’t love that I do, but I am not shy of saying what I feel. I never want to be left wishing I had told someone how I felt.

You can tell a lot about someone by their music. Hit shuffle on your ipod, Itunes, phone, media player, etc then pass this along to 20 people. One rule no skipping.
