A new beginning?

Here I am.

I think I have decided to come back. My livejournal will be there for a few purposes, but mainly I will be on here. I am an erratic poster, but there you go.

A new year has begun at university. Things aren't going so well, regarding friends and things. Academically, on the other hand, I have never been so happy.

I bought a big book about Byron the other day and it arrived yesterday. I seem to be drifting towards a dissertation topic on Byron. Possibly something to do with incest. We'll see.

Right now, I am listening to Polly Scattergood. I have listened to her self titled album about three times now, but this time is the first time I have really listened to the lyrics. They are scary. I don't know how I feel about what I am hearing, but it is disturbing me quite a lot. I have been sad recently, but I haven't been depressed for a while now, and I would really rather keep it that way!

It was my anniversary with Dan the other day. A whole year. We went out for sushi, but apart from that and presents, the day was just like any other; full of cuddles. I am disgustingly happy.

Things I have learned today:
  • There is a sexual position called the Lucky Pierre. I learned about this in one of my Practical Criticism lectures. The lecture was pretty embarrassed.
  • I should water my plants more.
  • The rain destroys lecture notes with impressive vigour.
And to finish, an out of context Shakespeare Quotation:

"I had rather be a kitten and cry 'mew!'"

  1. I just wanted to say thanks for commenting (I really appreciate it when it's something more useful or in-depth than "great shoes xx," so your response to my posted question was really nice). Personally I like the format of tumblr (haha and yes you get followers, and it's less intimidating for readers to reblog your posts than for them to type up a comment and publish it), although I don't have one myself. I totally get that it's hard to blog when no one comments because you don't know if you're blogging for no reason, but I like to think of blogging as something for myself. I mean, I know there are fashion bloggers out there who blog just for comments, and who wear things they know will get the most comments from the most readers, even if what they're wearing or saying is not necessarily what they want to be wearing or saying. I try to stay away from that, because then I'm just trying to please other people. I guess I'm just a big old Fuck You when it comes to blogging.

    That being said, I have now been scarred and know what Lucky Pierre refers to, and your dress/slip is REALLY CUTE.

    If it gives you satisfaction independent of receiving comments, I think you should keep blogging regardless of what other people might think.
