A7: S7 - The Magic of Music

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I've always had an odd relationship with music.

I've never been one to be distraught if caught off-guard without my headphones, or spend endless nights weeping because my favourite band will never know I exist, but music is something which I have a very passionate and tempestuous love/hate affair with.

I know, it sounds ridiculous and contradictory coming from a singer, songwriter and (albeit amateur) musician, but hey, I'm pretty much the mistress of hypocrisy.

A7: S6 - Crushing

Well gosh darn-ding-dang-doodly-damn it.

I'd been doing so well. 

But, *sigh* I've only gone and bloomin' well done it.

I'm C-r-u-s-h-i-n-g.

A7: S5 - The Clarity

Recently, my posts here have been more like a diary rather than the frustrated philosophical and spiritual debates that I once begun with. 

But I have by no means forgotten my rationale behind creating this blog, and lately, my absence in discussing these is due to being caught in a very bizarre place in my own mind, a place that even I find difficult to curate the words for. 

So I guess I'll start at the beginning.

A7: S4 - Pistol's Diary


Hello lovely readers! 

I have something very exciting to share with you today. The following is a guest post, the first ever one featured on Scarphelia (and hopefully not the last) by my elusive, ridiculous and totally-platonic-love-of-my-life best friend, Pistol. 

As you returning readers will know, Pistol is a fundamental character in my life, and indeed, in Scarphelia, and I'm so excited for this contribution. Pistol leads an absolutely ridiculous life, and as I mentioned in my Glastonbury post, he is the most prevalent silver influencer on me and my life. So it's awesome for all you to get an insight into the life of the people around me, and not just me ranting on about my life for once!

So here we go Ladies and Gentleman, here is a day in the life of Pistol.

A7: S3 - Lovers Visions

Does your mind ever make you see things, or make you notice things which you cannot possibly begin to explain?

Yet inside your own head you can understand and comprehend these things completely, but only when you try and put words to them, only upon voicing them do you realise how clinically insane you sound?

This happens to me a lot.

A7: S2 - A Day in the Life of a Competitive Cheerleader

So there's quite a major part of my life that I have never mentioned or discussed on Scarphelia, something which people are always surprised to find out, and often say things like "But... that's so not you." - to which I can't help but smile at.

 And that is, as you maaaaaaaaay have already guessed, (Yup, that's me in the middle there with the big bow!) that I am a Level 3 International Competitive Cheerleader.

A7: S1 - Top 10 Glastonbury '13 Moments

So, I have juuuuuust about finally returned and recovered from the most incredible few days of my life at The Glastonbury Festival 2013.

In a combination of majorly suffering from the Post-Festival Blues and waiting for my disposables to come back from the developers, I have been waiting to put up this post, and in the meantime, stewing over how exactly I'm going to do it. I began keeping a diary of every day at the festival, by writing down all I could remember before I went to bed each night, but after the first night I realised that that was going to be a completely unrealistic prospect.

So, alongside some guest posts from some of the lovely people that were with me, including my darling Pistol, I've decided to summarise the entire experience into my top 10 moments of the festival!
