so i was thinking now would be a good time to introduce myself to all you good looking people who follow i was a kaleidoscope. thanks for that, by the way.
first off, the title of the blog really has no particular significance. about a year ago i wanted to make a blog, and i was listening to deathcab for cutie. that's pretty much it.
my name's lauren joy ness. i'm 17. i live in tauranga new zealand. it's easily the coolest place in the world... however, i've never been anywhere but nz, so i wouldn't know. haha.
i live with my parentals, my big brobar daniel and my little sissar becky. they rule, i love my family more than anything on earth. (except maybe cucumber and licourice.)
i go to a rad church called changepoint, and i'm interning there next year.
i dropped out of school after 6th form. my best friend is sammy griggs. i drink buttloads of coffee.
my ears are stretched to 16mm, i have a nose ring, and my tragus pierced. i play guitar, and sing. sometimes. i'm disgustingly sarcastic 87% of the time. i talk a lot.
i work at a cafe and i love it. i don't drink alcohol. i hate sushi. i spend most of my life on facebook, or blogspot. and the other part of my life at church or at burgerfuel with people from church.
i really enjoy my life, i have extremely good looking friends.
i have a bone diesase called osteogenisis imperfecta tybe B. basically means i have weak bones. i've broken 27 bones in my life.
the whites of my eyes are blue.
i dropped maths after 5th form.
i don't sleep very well a lot of the time. i love candy canes. i'm really impatient. i love reading blogs. i have size 9 feet.
i have the attention span of a 10 year old boy. i love roadtrips and all nighters. i listen to a weird variety of music.
the killers, bright eyes, kanye west, city & colour and gym class heroes are my faves of all time ever.
i saw the killers live with my brother on the 8th of april this year, it made my life.
i like boys with nice fashion sense and a bit of facial hair. in saying this, my love life is tragically non-existant. i don't really like texting, or talking on the phone. facebook or in person conversations please.
i believe in hope and love over anything and everything.
burn, by usher is my favourite song in the world ever. most people think this is a joke. this is not a joke. i love that song.
i kinda love blogging. and i kinda love that people like reading my blogs. all the photos are from tumblr and most of the words are song lyrics, boring i know.. but you guys still follow me. hahaha.
peace out playas!
and if you ever wanna know anything else, add me on the book of face, or ask me on here (:

He is jealous for me
Love's like a hurricane,
I am a tree
Bending beneath the weight of
His wind and mercy
When all of a sudden, I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory
and I realize just how beautiful You are and how great your affections are for me.
Oh, how He loves us so
Oh, how He loves us
How He loves us so.
Yeah, He loves us
Oh, how He loves us
Oh, how He loves us
Oh, how He loves.
We are His portion and
He is our prize,
Drawn to redemption
by the grace in His eyes
If grace is an ocean, we're all sinking
So heaven meets earth like a sloppy wet kiss and my heart turns
violently inside of my chest
I don't have time to maintain these regrets when I think about the way

"Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable."

i still don't know how to get out of bed half the time.
it's not pretty or endearing.
i whisper you secrets, i am still looking to be saved,
sometimes i am so weak,
sometimes i am so strong,
here you go, i'll give you everything for one more chance.
my heart is ugly,
but it could be all yours.
i'm just so exhausted right now, which is making me emotional for no reason. the last few days have been pure goodness. i can't believe i've finished school, it's the craziest feeling. it's like all the routine and structure i've relied on for 12 years is gone. it's kinda liberating. 5 exams in the next 2 weeks. then bring on summer road trips. i have the coolest and best looking friends around. i wish ryan atwood was a real person, the world would be a much better place. seriously.

sorry about the bony elbows,
sorry we lived here,
sorry about the scene at the bottom of the stairwell
and how i ruined everything by saying it out loud.
