Weekend | Adventures at the Museum

When the weekend comes around for me each Friday, I get that normality of that ecstatic little buzz you get when school is finally over. In my weekend, I normally just visit friends, go for lunch/movie depending on the poor weather, stay at home and watch vampire diaries, horse ride, spend time with my family, or visit my city. As I spent the whole weekend with my best friend Keziah, being broke and all, we wanted to spend a day that didn't involve as much money as we would normally have spent.

Alarm bells started going off in my head - bowling? beach? movies? MUSEUM. 

My adventure began.
Here is a photo of me and my best friend Keziah. 

This is a lemony avocado bagel with olive, pepper and kraut that I bought from Little Bird in Ponsonby. 


Pinned butterflies named "Papillo Blumei Blumei Sulawesi"




A Greek sculpture from the Ancient Greek Worlds section in the museum. 




A cascade of lights that I took in motion because I liked and I tried oh~so~hard to reincarnate the original tumblr theme photo. 



Front row Taylor Swift mosh pit tickets. Goddess. I was pretty guttered that my little brother got to meet her with my mum and sister but I didn't. Ugh. Although I got some pretty amazing tickets, I was right up at the closest part of the stage you could get. 




This lion made me feel sad. The taxidermist would have felt sadness because the lion looks so upset.




Stained glass remembrance of soldiers that fought in both world wars. 



Now this one makes me think. There is this quote that I can't actually get off my phone but it was a quote on the walls of the Fallen, and on the walls there were thousands of names. 
The quote reads:

"THEY WHOM THE INSCRIPTIONS UPON THESE WALLS COMMEMORATE ARE THOSE FROM THE PROVINCIAL DISTRICT OF AUCKLAND WHO AT THE CALL OF KING AND COUNTRY LEFT ALL THAT WAS DEAR TO THEM ENDURED HARDNESS FACED DANGER ANDFINALLY PASSED OUT AT THE SIGHT OF MENBY THE PATH OF DUTY AND SELF SACRIFICEGIVING THEIR LIVES THAT OTHERS MIGHT LIVE IN FREEDOMLET THOSE WHO COME AFTER SEE TO IT THAT THEIR NAMES BE NOT FORGOTTEN"



Birds eye view of the museum. Reminds me of something from Mount Olympus. 


Map of the world that I thought was beautiful. This map reminds me that there are so many things out there that I haven't seen and experienced and so many places and people and memories I urge to live.



Stay humble,
