and there’s this spider hanging there going, “oh, hey y’all. you gon reach for your little pen? don’t worry, i won’t touch y’all. just reach under.. that’s right.. little closer.. aw, you gots it. see, what’d i tell y’all?”
What's it like living by yourself for the first time?
honestly, it’s amazing. i’ve always been very close to my family, so the actual leaving process was really hard - but everyone here is pretty much the same. most of us have never lived by ourselves before, so it’s been this massive learning curve, and we’ve all helped each other through it. i love being completely in charge of my life; you really learn the worth of money and how to manage it, and you have to learn how to cook a lot of different things (unless you’re okay with a beans-on-toast diet, which i’m not). i could already cook pretty well, but i’ve also learned to make a ton of new meals. for the first few weeks, everything is kind of up in the air - you may not know how to do a proper weeks’ food shop, or even how to do your clothes washing properly - and missing your family doesn’t help. but it’s surprising how quickly it passes, because your flatmates become your family! it’s brilliant. i can already feel my self-confidence growing massively ♥
alright, my brother is vegan, so he drinks coconut milk. anyway, it comes in a can, so he wanted a can opener. so he runs into my room and he's like "COOL. SCISSORS" and stabs them into the can. i used those scissors to trim my pubes yesterday.
hairs were hanging off them as he stabbed it, he didn't even notice
he poured out the coconut milk into a cup. it looked like badger milk. he drank it.
he was like "THANKS"
i was laughing my ass off and he was like "dude it's not even that funny" and walks out
he comes back in as i'm about to tell you and he's like "HEY MAN I MADE COFFEE WITH IT DO YOU WANT SOME?"
oh my giddy god's pyjamas :'D
i'm like "no thanks man, i'm cool"
i laugh every time he drinks, he thinks i'm playing mind games.
and then he was like "...it's not too bad in coffee. not too bad."
ladies and gentlebeavers, i have just become a tenant
ohmygiddygod i feel so grown up
we won’t actually be moving in until next september, but we’ve secured our house! it’s got five double bedrooms (three up, two down), two bathrooms (with actual baths, holy basoomas) and a luurvely open-plan kitchen-diner and living space, with leather sofas. we can’t wait to move in and make it all cosy! ♥
haha, just so you know, they don't hit you in the face (from experience) :D
question: have you had more friends that are boys, or girls, or is it pretty much even?
damn! i wonder what size they’d have to be to give you a nosebleed when you jump up and down?
i think it’s fairly even, actually - although when it comes to initially making friends with people, i always find i’m less shy around guys. with girls there’s always the element of feeling like they’re judging you - but that said, i have some really awesome girl mates on my course that i hang out with all the time during lecture hours and we click so well! i think it’s just easier to be banterous with guys, and i’m a pretty banterous person. to get on well with me you have to be the kind of person who’s a bit unhinged yourself. c;
