Anonymous asked: I wasn't necessarily referring only to you, but to pretty much every person who replied to that post attacking that guy. And yes, they meant to attack him. I think it's pathetic that people can just adopt the tag 'feminist' to justify their criticism of everything males do and then throw in some minor 'gender equality' bullshit to make it seem genuine. I am tired of...
I’m scrolling through pictures of Indian food right now, and I can’t work out if I feel homesick, hungry, or a little flustered.
I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz, or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off. I love you as certain dark things are to be loved, in secret, between the shadow and the soul. I love you as the plant that never blooms but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers; thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance, risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body. I love you...
I’ve heard people mention that my university was holding some sort of Halloween and Diwali event earlier this week. As in: Hallowi or Diwalleen or some sort of stupid amalgamation, though I really hope those ridiculous names weren’t used. In fact, I hope it was just a bunch of rumours, because I still haven’t found any confirmation that it went on. It isn’t even the fact it...
Anonymous asked: That poor boy doesn't deserve you lot slating him. -_- Idk why tumblr is full of bitchy self-righteous femin-bitches who have to attack everyone. Tired of pseudo-feminists that are happy to just hate men for everything they do when it's supposed to mean equality between the sexes.

We were too afraid to leave, so we laughed at all the references everybody else laughed at, took notes, and helped ourselves to handouts on the coursework assignments.
esotericcoteries replied to your post: I just feel that everyone deserves to see what I did twenty minutes ago. Owwww. What did you drop on it? Or did someone get angry and wallop you on the thumb? Well, you know that Shemsa and her temper… It was an unfortunate case of door hinges + forgotten hand placement. I did sort of revel in the icky plaster reveal though.

University accommodation consists of the Towers, the South Courts, the Houses, and the Quays. The Towers - the residents, rather - have a bit of a reputation for… well, guess. A fraction of one of the shelves in the library. Look at the dust on those books. Look at it. This is a bus ride and short walk away from campus. There’s a huge park surrounding it, which includes a...
Laura and I both left to have lunch at a café near our accommodation today, and then realised after the door to our floor was shut that we didn’t have our house keys. We went along for lunch anyway, hoping to meet another housemate when she returned, so we could be let in. The other housemate, Shemsa (who took great pleasure in our misery), told us that she wouldn’t be back from her...
I like university.
It’s 5.37am now. So far today (five hours and thirty-seven minutes, I know), I have: Done my nails and played Truth or Dare with my housemates. Made some good macaroni and cheese. Walked to the laundromat in my socks with Laura. Walked all the way to campus with Laura. Laura and I left for the last one at 4am or so. I don’t think I’ve explained how the journey works out...
quinnathan replied to your post: quinnathan replied to your photo: First… The disgusting sticky sweet smell permeated the floor for days, and the microwave was a mess beyond belief. They were jokes, though. It was an interesting affair. Was there a fire alarm that went off? I’ve never smelled a smell like that before, but I know the smell of burnt chocolate is vile, so I can imagine...
sauverlemonde replied to your video i love the earrings you are wearing! :) Thank-you! I feel like a little kid playing dress-up whenever I wear them.
quinnathan replied to your photo: First passive-aggressive kitchen note of the year…. We had someone incinerate some cinnamon rolls in our microwave. He then wrote an apology letter and put it on the door. It was covered with sticky notes with death threats in an hour. Haha! At least he apologised. Did the microwave break or something? Actually, I’m guessing those notes were all...

Maybe he didn’t blame them. Putting a loud-mouth ex-con in his place was one thing. Putting the boots to him so hard that he killed himself was another. Somewhere, Thomas realised, a man who considered himself a human should know where to stop, leave another man a place to live in. He had been bitter when Rudolph had called him a wild animal when they were kids, but would he have the...

The first thing I’ve learned at Essex is that a great ice breaker for meeting new people is to ride around in a shopping trolley. The second is that attempting to leap over a curb in the most secluded part of the campus doesn’t have the same success rate.

First night at university.
I skipped the event I had planned to go to because I didn’t feel up for it. I feel a lot more at ease now, though. My housemates are ridiculously lovely. Also, I undressed for a shower last night and then realised the curtains were open. My room is on the ground floor. Overlooking a parking area. The international students were arriving.
At university. Mum and sister left a while ago and things are unpacked. Have gone from being at ease and excited to mildly terrified. Am considering missing first Freshers’ Week event tonight to cruise through Tumblr and cry into some mashed potatoes.
