intro

The start:

Lets start with the title of this blog, corporeal days. The full quote is from a book called Slade House by David Mitchell and isn’t that interesting out of context or without spoilers so read the book yourself. But it’s basically the idea that this is the only physical life i have, at the moment.

THE PERSON

Currently: a 19-year-old who is a student at the University of Manchester, originally from a town where nothing happens. massive movie fan. blue eyes, brown/grey short hair due to indecision and the need for change.
Jessica to my family, Jess to my friends, and Jessa in an alternate universe where i can pull off a cool name.
I’m someone easily lost in a crowd. The person behind the camera. 

 

THE BRAIN

absolute scatterbrain. full of ideas but not enough potential or motivation. creative only in theory. a true thinker and daydreamer. so many stories and not enough words for the day. recovering over thinker and negative brain. deep thoughts and big dreams for the humans.

 

THE PHILOSOPHY

be the best you can be or can try to be. do whats best for you or sometimes those around you. strong believer in equality and positivity. feminist, realist, optimist and pessimist. there is always a bigger picture. always trust yourself and fate. astrology, coincidence, supernatural forces, other dimensions are harmless things to believe in to a certain extent.

THE BLOG
Throughout my life I’ve made (including tumblr) about 8 other blogs for rants and aesthetic purposes. im always chatting rubbish online, whether its long tweet threads or a summary of my month on instagram. im a big fan of sharing stuff online and getting stuff out of my brain and into the cyber world. so yes i am that person who takes pretty pictures of my food or will tweet the most inane stuff ever. maybe i overshare too much online and don’t share enough irl but im trying to find a balance. so this blog will be just another online version of me i guess. if no one reads it that’s fine and some people do even better.

some arty quotes:

Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici
(by the power of truth, I, while living, have conquered the universe)

Life is suffering. It is hard. The world is cursed. But still you find reasons to keep on living. – Princess Mononoke (everyone should watch studio ghibli films)
