oh such a prima donna

I now own a Little Black Dress and stockings. I’m a grown-up, you know.

I’m at home, and have been for almost a week now. I’ll invite you to imagine that I’ve just written a paragraph about how this is; your guesses are probably about right.* I’ll also invite you to guess at how my work is going from the number of baked goods I have produced (five) and the number of hours I’ve spent talking to George (too many/not enough). But I’m spending time with family and old friends, and my head’s in a good place, so that will have to do for now. and I have just been looking at one of the essays which carries 12.5% of my final degree, so really, I’m making a start.

*this approach rather defeats blogging as a general concept. C-, must try harder.

I’m going home today! Room is all packed up.

boyfriend just came round. We’re not going to see each other for a few weeks, which will be sad. We stood in my room, surrounded by boxes, and kissed goodbye. As we were doing so I accidentally reopened his split lip and he bled all over my face.

we’re talented and bright

For once my reason for not updating is not because I have nothing to say. But it’s been a strange week, and I was going to wait until it settled down to talk about it, but I don’t know really know when that will happen. or if. I’ll just be careful what I say.

I met a guy. I don’t want to say much about him because God knows I don’t want to jinx it. But he’s smart and witty and a mass of contradictions I’ve not yet figured out, and, most importantly, he stands up to me. He also loves anime, builds computers and can quote large sections of Good Omens and the Star Trek reboot. He has a posher voice than I do. And he loves baby animals. But you’d never think it to look at him.

He’s also at the same college as me, in the year below. Gossip is flying every which way, perhaps because we’re keeping such a low profile. but I can’t say I’m not enjoying it.

In other news (though I struggle to think of any), work is progressing too slowly and I don’t mind enough. This is precisely the worst time to have got involved with someone, but of course I can’t bring myself to care. I’m going to do some more work tonight, but when Match of the Day starts I’m going over to his and teaching him about football. Not liking football is one of his many flaws I intend to rectify.

catch a flame to my sentiment

Today I had the best singing lesson in months and went on a date that lasted two hours, and I think it only ended out of necessity. and then I had a delicious dinner at Clare and went to a friend’s pretty awesome jazz choir at the ADC lateshow.

I was so much more productive when I wasn’t so happy.
