It has been a month of ups and downs, sadly the downs outweighed the ups. It's a roller coaster life and nothing lasts forever, a lesson I have been learning this past year. In June a lot of feelings have been felt, a month ago I did not expect any of them but I find that the universe has a way of surprising us. A few good days with friends and close ones have aided my heart, keeping me at ease. Simple things like going for a picnic, coffee or dinner can do more than you think. After saying goodbye to the dearest creature in my life I have felt a great hole that has been far more difficult than I ever expected it to be. I believe it has made an effect on my body in combination with the pollen being very high I have not felt 'normal' almost the whole month, a friend I work with even joked that I'm falling apart. I will not be defeated, I choose to survive because that is what I do, what we all do. Through the pain, difficulties and surprises we power through it. Even when it is unbearable we fight until the end.

June Days

noun 
The solstice at midsummer, at the time of the longest day, about 21 June in the northern hemisphere and 22 December in the southern hemisphere.

One of my favourite things about Summer is without a doubt the evenings being filled with light and waking to a bright sky. And on the longest day of the year I made an effort to take some time for myself to make me feel good and welcome Summer. I wore a maxi skirt for the first time since last Summer, drove around with sunglasses on, bought a new bright plant for my room, had a little afternoon picnic in the park and laid in the sun when it wasn't hiding behind the few clouds and listened to some new music. More simple days like this and I think I will be somewhat content with the season. May all of your Summer days be full of greatness.

Saying goodbye to you for the last time two days ago was the most difficult goodbye I've ever had to say. My heart is aching knowing that I can't just go out into the garden where your hutch is and take you out for a cuddle, stroke your fur and let you hop around the big garden with lots of grass that you never really took full advantage of. Always finding a spot to sprawl out and chill in peace, we're alike in that way. Even when I put you in the middle of the garden you would hop back down the path and follow me to the bench where you would often hide under. Instead it's empty, I will never look out of the kitchen window and see your face with your floppy ears on both sides looking back at me, I've caught myself doing that almost out of habit to check you're okay but I know you're not there. The excitement you showed when I would open the door to give you food, I like to think you were also happy to see me. When you nudge me hello, come up to my feet or sit next to me and start licking my leg I knew that you loved me.

I've been thinking about some of the funny little things you would do. When I let you roam around the house by yourself while I was up in my room you would hop up the stairs, open my door and hop up on the bed to see me. While you were on the bed you push out your paws like you were trying to straighten out the bed. Sometimes when you were on the floor I would leave the room for a few minutes and I would come back and find you laying on the bed right in the middle. When there were sheets on the washing line you would go up to it and play around it. The way you would circle around people even when Mum was hanging out the washing. You liked to rip up paper especially envelopes with the plastic windows and chew up the buttons on the remote control and wires. One of my favourites was when there was a plate with a few bourbon biscuits on the fireplace and you just went up and grabbed one then ran back to your bed in the kitchen. It's memories like these that I will hold onto.

You were mischievous, friendly and adoring. Everyone loved you, who wouldn't. There are so many things I'm going to miss, I already miss and will forever miss. You were my first pet, for the last 5 and a half years I always had you and your fluffy fur to make me feel good, a friend who I wish could speak but we communicated in our own way. You were my most treasured thing ever. I will love you forever with my whole heart. Rest well my precious rabbit xxx

On Thursday evening I went with one of my friends to see Lorde at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire, although I'm not a fan of the song that ignited her fame Royals, the rest of her work from her album Pure Heroine changed my mind about the 17 year old's talent. Knowing my friend is a fan, once I found out Lorde was performing a second London date we decided to get tickets.

The sold out show began with supporting act Lo-Fang, there is not one genre that the band falls under, they are a mixture of electronic, classical and folk. An interesting sound, I did like the lyrics of some of the songs so I think I will check them out soon. Later Lorde opened with Glory and Gore, alone on stage in a masculine style wearing a white shirt, black jacket and trousers. As the second song began the curtain dropped with her band behind.

While performing she was incredibly energetic, moving with the beat of the music with her hair waving around, I was insanely jealous of her thick, long, curly hair. In between going through the set list, Lorde paused to talk to everyone about how appreciative she was to be there performing as well as sharing a story about how she has been avoiding growing up and when she threw a party that influenced the song Ribs. She continued to perform incredibly, winding down with more popular songs. During the penultimate song Team, she went off stage and put on a golden gown to finish the song with a burst of confetti.

I always get the most satisfying feeling when I walk out of a venue after being a part of an artist or band performing live in front of many, many people. If you're a fan of Lorde I would recommend if you get the chance to see her live because her spirit travels and you feel as passionate as she does.
