A Young Girl Reading. Attributed to George Elgar Hicks (English, 1824-1914). Oil on canvas.
Although this work is an exception, Hicks’ paintings were often of subjects that no other artists attempted, such as the General Post Office and Billingsgate Fish Market. Hicks was one of the few artists that showed lasting interest in the emulation of Frith’s style and is generally considered Frith’s principal imitator.

Lately, I haven’t been realising that I’m in my third year of college. And I think that thought has been overwhelming me that I was so focused from the start and now I’m full of mess and I don’t know where to begin picking up the pieces. I’ve grown attached to my dependency on mom the past 3 months of summer. Being without her again has been hard but it isn’t as grand as the first time. More than anything, I think, I need to love myself more. I need to let myself love myself. I’m slowly easing to respecting my body and that I only get to have one body. I need to learn how to love and care for it. (Without mom’s help.)

With school starting again, it means that my best friends will slowly lose out of touch again and I have to deal with the pressures of college and college friends. I don’t know.

It’s a labyrinth.


Her hair was a mane of jet-black ringlets that fell to the small of her back, and around her brow was a band of copper suns. Where the Sand Snakes were tall, Arianne took after her mother, who stood but five foot two. She is still a little thing, the captain thought. Yet beneath her jewelled girdle and loose layers of flowing purple silk and yellow samite she had a woman’s body, lush and roundly curved.

"What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much, though."- J.D. Salinger
