swipe left to read a short story on why the stars have stopped shining for me, or if you’re in the mood to read then do give my caption below a read. to understand what I really mean in today’s swipe series.
i should’ve said something. why do i have the rage of a lion?
i don’t believe in star signs but does it have to do something with the fact that i’m a leo?
why can’t i just swallow my pride and lava burning ego?
i should’ve just apologized, instead of waiting for the next morning.
it shouldn’t have mattered who was in the right or who was in the wrong, maybe it was her, maybe me, or maybe neither.
but i should’ve at least wiped her tears away, or at least called to check up on her, instead of just telling her to “get lost”...
only to find myself begging for her to forgive me the next morning.
maybe that’s why the stars aren’t shining for me tonight. i think they saw her.
they saw her crying out her lungs until she couldn’t breathe. forget if it was because of me or wasn’t, but i should’ve been there to calm her down and tell her to sip water.
but i wasn’t.
and now the stars know. so they won’t shine for me.
well, at least not tonight. i think they’re punishing me. or it also may be a lesson in disguise;
to never let a loved one go to sleep with tears in their eyes.
Guess what my favourite color is? Turquoise 😊
Sea beaches and water in general have inspired me, so I had to go turquoise today.
What am I up to now? I am currently working this July month and at the same time enjoying the beautiful weather here in Sweden.
It is currently up to 30 C degrees now, so yes...I am dying 😂

Strathbogie, the original name for Huntly, was granted by King William the Lion to Duncan, Earl of Fife around 1190 as a reward for his support in crushing a rebellion in Moray. He most likely built the first castle on this site.
The Fifes of Strathbogie lost their lands and titles in 1314, after siding with the English at the Battle of Bannockburn. The victorious Robert the Bruce granted Strathbogie to a loyal supporter, Sir Adam Gordon of Huntly.
Around 1445, Alexander, 2nd Lord Gordon, was created Earl of Huntly and became the King's chief lieutenant in North East Scotland, responsible for fighting the Black Douglases.
However, by the mid-16th century the wealth of the Earl of Huntly was starting to be seen as a threat. After the 4th Earl continued to hear the mass despite its ban by the Reformation Act (1560), a Royal army was sent north to deal with the earl. He died in an accident on his way to Edinburgh to answer for his actions but, not to be denied a court hearing, the Government put his embalmed corpse on trial for treason.
Despite the fate of the 4th Earl, the Gordons remained in control of the castle and also continued their support for the Catholic cause. George Gordon, Fifth Earl of Huntly supported the Catholic Mary, Queen of Scots in the civil war of 1568. However, following the Earl’s role in the Spanish Blanks plot, James VI took action, forcing the Earl to flee to France. The King and Earl were later reconciled in 1597, with George Gordon being created Marquis of Huntly.
The castle was sufficiently intact to be used as a garrison for Government troops following the 1745 Jacobite Rebellion but thereafter it drifted into ruin. It was placed into State care in 1923.
