Ella just released her first ever video. I love it and I know she would have been a big part of the reason it is so good. She definitely knows what she wants, which I admire. The ending in particular gets me very excited, 'Tennis Court' is one of her new songs I have seen her perform a couple of times and it is great.
This is all very exciting.
Go Ella you're awesome and not just for a 16 year old, just an awesome human.

Flowers are always great. You could buy some and make your own arrangement or even just pick some yourself!
Just had a freak out this morning because I remembered I still hadn't found mum anything for mother's day.
So looked around and here is some great stuff I have found that I know my mum would love...

Surf trip out to Forestry with Tim.
Most of the photos are taken from my Instagram @maddybudd.
Today was my first day back at uni after mid-semester break and I'm actually glad to be back. The holidays had me feeling a bit bored and unmotivated.
Managed to get out and go paddle boarding a bit which is awesome and I walk almost every morning now. Doing more exercise has made me feel 10 times better mentally and physically. I'm just more alert and energised. I think I'm a bit of an addict now, never thought that would happen!
Had a couple of good nights out and as usual spent plenty of time with all of my amazing friends.
So much uni work to do now. I'm totally procrastinating by writing this blog post.
Here are some photos of what I have been up to:

Just stumbled across this promo vid on the Oyster blog and thought it was pretty cool. I think I'm going to judge all awkward situations on a "scale from 1 to Larry David" from now on. Haha.
That also lead me to this tumblr post that Grimes wrote entitled "I don't want to have to compromise my morals in order to make a living".
This post really struck a chord with me.
I think it was particularly the parts where she talks about, her desire to be treated as an equal being interpreted as a hatred of men, rather than just a request to be included and respected.
Also how she is tired of being considered vapid for liking pop music or caring about fashion as if these things inherently lack substance or as if the things she enjoys somehow make her a lesser person.
I myself have felt like liking pop music and fashion was maybe a little too vapid and shallow and I needed to grow up and start being interested in things with more substance.
Don't get me wrong, I do have other interests, but at the end of the day these are just things that I like, and I should just enjoy them because that is what makes me happy.
She is great. I love that she has an opinion and the confidence to express it. More young girls should.
