Cutest person ever at the laundrette.
I was scrambling to get stuff out of the dryer just now, and dropped my underwear and felt really embarrassed. This other girl getting her clothes out saw, purposefully dropped hers and shrugged and smiled as a sort of “Don’t worry, me too”.
I made a vow before I left for Colchester that I’d only be seen here looking as decent as possible. Yeah, no. I really like that I can just roll out into the kitchen and sit down for a chat, looking like a greasy arse mess. I mean, I sometimes go to the convenience store having just washed my hair, doing nothing with it. It doesn’t sound like much, but when my hair’s just dried,...
I booked train tickets to London for Friday earlier. The return on Sunday hasn’t been sorted out yet, but I’ll get to it (I hope). I don’t feel excited so much as I do happy. Just really, really happy to be spending this weekend at home. I can feel this year drawing to a close even though we don’t break up until March 23rd, and even then we have the summer term. But...

This is absolutely, horrifically overwhelming.
Having breakfast/lunch right now, meaning two slices of processed cheese dipped in Nando’s sauce. My favourite part is reading the ingredients on the slices’ packet and finding it begins with: “cheese (42%)”

quinnathan replied to your post: I’ve started doing this thing where I read through… Honey, you’re running a blog. A blog consists of your opinions. Credible or not, we follow you because we like reading them. You are a very nice person. So much so that I trust you’ll know that me saying the same goes for you isn’t just done out of obligation. mycupofchai replied to...
I’ve started doing this thing where I read through my posts. I need to stop, because I start realising that this blog really isn’t as credible as I like to think. And then I don’t know whether to be grateful that you all follow me, or just judge you for it. It’s the former, always. But sometimes I wonder…
We had a Gilmore Girls night last night, and everyone left at around 1am. I felt so happy and energetic, and I told myself I was gonna wash my hair and stay up all night writing a post about being a nice person. And then I’d have time to do my hair and eat a good breakfast, and go to both my lectures feeling all chirpy and chipper. I made a post about paedophiles, went to bed at 6am, got...

The sad thing is,
that started out as a post about things people should remember, like the joys of science and art, and how nice it is to not be mean to people. Also, I have no appropriate gifs for how I feel about that, and I’ve been dying to use this one for so long.
Paedophilia =/= child molesting.
It’s completely justified to feel sick at the thought of what paedophilia means, but you have to remember that it’s defined by a sexual attraction, not a sexual attraction and no control. Whilst acting on the urges is a definite component in the definition, a paedophile can also be somebody with the attraction who does not act on the urges, but is distressed by them. There’s a...

A delivery man buzzed our flat so I picked up over the intercom to let him through. He said he had a delivery for someone in 2.5. I told him we were 3.1 and that he was probably looking for the building next to us, so he headed that way. The delivery was flowers. Somebody ordered someone in 2.5 flowers. And they arrived. On Valentine’s Day. I don’t want to talk to you if you...
Happy Valentine's Day!
I feel a lot closer to the people I follow than I actually am. Especially when you all post about what happened during your day, and I feel like dropping you a message that’s all, “Heeeeeeey”, until I remember that the last time we spoke was a ‘Thanks for the follow!’ message several months ago.
I say this every year, but I love Valentine’s Day. Beyond the usual jokes about reduced chocolate prices in the following week, and backhanded comments involving judging couples and eating ice cream. It makes sense. All the songs and movies and books and plays and adverts that involve love. There’d be an uproar if there wasn’t a day to celebrate it. I really do understand the...

It seems to always snow in February, but now doesn’t feel right. It’s not that I dislike this kind of weather; it’s great to look at and fun when in the mood for it. The impracticality is what gets me. And I like snow the way I like snow. I don’t have a problem with anyone wanting to be pelted by snowballs, but I prefer sitting inside and just knowing it’s there. Or...
