A candid look at my mental health in relation to my first year of University.

I'm coming to the end of my first year at university and I have an essay to write, which I'm not used to at the moment- having done practical work all year; I study at Wimbledon College of Arts (UAL) and my course is Set Design for Screen, so most of what I do is practical. Yesterday on the bus home I was thinking of ways to get my writing flow back and I decided that I'd write this piece, it's a candid view on the challenges I have faced in my first year as a university student. It's tough being unfathomably ambitious with a brain that's sabotaging your every move...

Poems that I wrote last year at least.

Devils Getting out of hell seemed to be, Black Devils outside of the library, Talking about your day, Your mouth’s all shock smoky. All of my demons and all of my devils at the library, Fighting them with the force of Buffy. My jumper with heart elbows, Like a grey patched up bear, The elf…

Traces, a poem.

Cleaning all traces off of my DVD cases. Not even on the Pulp Fictions or Scarfaces, The innocents got it too, All of the remnants of me and you, Our dust and our crust, I wiped them down, I wiped all of them down. Mia Wallace is holding my hand. Incense is smothering our tobacco…

Hopes & Wishes, a poem.

You said you wish you had left me on that island. You wish you hadn't extended your efforts to help me come home to you, and I said back that I wish I had died on that island but thankfully sometimes wishes are just that. If you take the time to make a wish amidst…

‘Hi, How Are You Daniel Johnston?’ A review.

'Hi, How Are You Daniel Johnston? (Short Film- 2015)' -A 17 minute long psychedelic sadness, exploring the personal tapes of singer-songwriter-outsider artist and soft soul, Daniel Johnston. The artist I found Daniel Johnston, like a lot of people, through curiosity about the shirt that Kurt Cobain used to wear. I loved Nirvana ever since I…

Laura Palmer

I'm working on getting better at tech in general atm, I made this video with some software called Movavi, the clips are all from my own copy of Fire Walk With me and some is from Twin Peaks clips. I wanted to try and capture her fear and desperation in a sense. I just cut…
