"This girl shivers and crawls under the covers with all her clothes on and falls into an overdue library book, a faerie story with rats and marrow and burning curses. The sentances build a fence around her, a Times Roman 10-point baracade, to keep the thorny voices in her head from getting too close."

ahoy there.

to my blog.
watermelon whale.
if you weren't following my previous (fail!) blog, let me introduce myself.
i'm Jade.
i live in Africa.
(okay, SOUTH Africa)
i'm a 20 something year old crazy in love nerd.
i have a slight owl obsession that is bordering onto a full blown addiction.
i also like earl gray tea, whale sharks, nose in a book, thrifting, laughing and saying things like "thaaar she blows" in inappropriate situations.
i think bearded, curly-haired boys are cute (okay i lie, ONE boy...being mine)
tattoos are swell.
and sunflowers must be the most awesome flower.
oceanic animals are also pretty awesome.

i really would like to get to know you.
so if you happen to fall upon this little blog, tell me a bit about YOURSELF.
