teenage mutiny

My name’s Augusta, and I’m yet to be given a nickname due to the fact that my name is so awkward, aha. I was named after a Saint, who was killed by her own father because of her conversion to Christianity.. That’s always a conversation starter. I seem to be secluding myself and running away with my thoughts, I can be nostalgic at time but I guess everyone is.

I’m 16 years old, but you will often find me writing my age as XVI, because Roman numerals make the most mundane ages look fascinating. I live in Kent, I want to say something profound about living in Kent, but nothing comes to mind. I was born December 29th and I am a Capricorn.

I think I’m becoming a recluse, which I think is brilliant as I hear that all the best people are. I have brown eyes, Black hair that’s as close to a description you’ll get of my appearance, until I feel brave enough to show my face. I have a tendency to let my mind wander at the oddest of moments. “Conformity is not acceptance, it is a lethargy that steals your innocence” so I tend to distance myself from it. 

I’m 5ft5, which I am very happy about because it means I’ve grown an inch this Summer, and I am in love with fruit teas I drink it everyday albeit we are in the middle of Summer. 

I tend to set myself goals, that I never intend to keep and when I’m feeling priggish I like to read novels from Oscar Wilde, Jane Austen or just write poetry whilst attempting to impersonate a lost soul. I have made Tumblr three times and delete it when my follower count increases -which is ridiculous- but I intend to keep this account.

I am an optimist,  at times a pessimist and on the odd occasion narcissistic  tinged with a hint of condescension, and although these are awful traits, I try to deliver the worst traits by delivering them in moderate doses… which I can control myself.

I love music, I could be walking with my friends and burst into song spontaneously. I love folk music and Indie music, but undoubtedly The Smiths are my babies -hence my blog name- I seem to find myself having dreams of dancing with 80s Morrissey singing with him in This Charming Man.

I would love to go to gigs, but I’m biding my time, as I think 4 people in my school have similar music tastes to me and one of which is my Science teacher. I am a political enthusiast, but I am not so chauvinistic that I would openly post my views on Tumblr.

I have a dry sense of humour and cannot stand people who pretend to be more intelligent than they are. I dislike people with poor grammar or use tautology, also to people who try to use big words but are using them incorrectly I say; STOP!

I played the guitar on and off for 5 years, I gave up because I broke all three of the guitars I have ever owned 2 of which were presents. My blog is a disposable blog and of course I reblog The Smiths, Morrissey and my favourite bands.

At times, I love to be alone but other times I like to be surrounded by a group of people. I like going jogging in the early hours of the morning and getting lost in woodlands or fields nearby. I’m not as adventurous as my sixteen year old counterparts, purely because I am a law abiding citizen -although admittedly I am awful at handing my library books in  on time.

If this is news to you this was quite clearly written a while ago. I have become more and more selective in who I speak to and you will quite often find me alone at lunch times. I seem to have abandoned my current friendships and seem to be reverting back to my friendships with the people I knew when times were good. 

I am quite fatalistic when it comes to the idea of relationships or teenage romance, based solely on my awful track record of non-existences and unkissed kissiness. I am terribly grumpy which for a girl of 16 is quite an awful trait. I keep a diary which I fill in sporadically.
