what sort of woman burns herself on the iron?
owbuggeryowww! i’ve also burned myself on the cooker and shut my fingers in the washing machine & dishwasher recently.. next i’ll slice my hand off while trying to make my boyfriend dinner! it’s like my clumsy body is a hardcore feminist or something and doesn’t want me to fulfil my natural womanly duties. i will be a good housewife, dammit! anyone got a fire-retardant,...

this is so not my week!
the bad luck fairy loves me recently, haha! in just the last several days my phone’s been stolen, i spilled drink in my keyboard & broke it (using an on-screen one to write this, so slow), and left my shopping on a train! so skilled in being a massive spaz. :’) i could let all this bring me down, but you know what? first world problems. rather than getting all “fml h8 my...
benedict cumberbatch was in our petrology lab
love the fact sherlock and doctor who are filmed in cardiff uni a lot - forever recognising the sets as places i visit every day, haha! almost as good as the time matt smith, karen gillan and arthur darvill were in my usual lecture theatre ♥

not even tired and i have to be up in six hours, WHYYY
chnkyy asked: You are so gorgeous! And so is your blog! ;)

gotta give a presentation to 90 other students...
i could be a nervous wreck, but instead i’m just going to get up there, talk loud and clear, laugh it off if i get my mords wuddled up, and generally boss it. ♥
met my new housemates today!
i’ve been on the hunt for a new house & housemates for next year because my current ones are going their separate ways (with new friends, off on placements, etc.), and i’ve found the perfect place and people! two guys and a girl, all absolutely lovely - and two pet bearded dragon lizards. they are the cutest things in the world and apparently sit on your head when you’re...
say NO to ACTA! →
ACTA is one more offensive against the sharing of culture on the Internet. ACTA (Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement) is an agreement secretly negotiated by a small “club” of like-minded countries (39 countries, including the 27 of the European Union, the United States, Japan, etc). Negotiated instead of being democratically debated, ACTA bypasses parliaments and international...
thank zeus for three-day weekends ♥
my first week back at uni’s already over - and ohmygiddygod’spyjamas, it was utter madlibs. twenty-two hours of lectures and pracs, extra reading and note-taking every evening until bedtime, and the earliest starts. i need to nap so badly right now, but if i get my assignment and today’s notes out the way tonight (and make a pasta bake, mmm) i’ll have the next couple of...

back at uniii!
already well-settled-in thanks to the help of my boyfriend, a serving of pasta, a hot mug of cocoa and several hilarious episodes of an idiot abroad with my housemates! unpacked, fairy lights on, warm double bed, lie-in tomorrow, and everything smells nice & fresh - WINNING! ♥
support shane and muscular dystrophy research! →
i told you all about this incredible guy a while ago, when he first started his mission to share the funny side of his disease with the world - and his inspiring positivity has made such an amazing impact! in just the last few months he’s gained a vast following here on tumblr for his blog, laughing at my nightmare (follow him right now), and is starting to make much bigger news (you have to...

proud sister, right here.
batman saves the day
ice skating was mucho successo! i’ve never been able to do it before; all my previous trips to the ice rink involved just clutching the side and pulling myself along like an absolute tit. but with a lot of help from batman, i was able to let go of the side and do actual skating things with my legs, even if i had to hold his hand most of the time! i went quite fast and there was a lot of...
remembering irish kid's television
when i was in ireland a few years back my brother and i were watching their kid’s channel on the tellybox. when a cartoon (designed for children aged about eight) finished, it switched back to the presenters, who greeted viewers with cheerful irish smiles and said something i’ll never forget. “now did you like that, children, or was it a bit shite?”
i’ve always been terrible at it, but i’m determined to do at least one unsupported lap of the rink! c: i will be like bambi on the ice to start off with - i just hope the other people there are fantastic skaters who can get out of the way quickly, or i will probably injure them fatally. maybe i will be allowed to have one of those support penguins to hold onto like the toddlers get?...

heavy rain on the window is my favourite lullaby....
nothing beats seeing old friends
no matter how much everything’s changed for us over the last two years, we can still frolick around in the rain by the castle and annoy innocent people with lasers like no time has passed at all. soppy post for jacob and steph because i love them a lot, and i hope they know how irreplaceable they are. ♥
sendaria asked: your timeline's lovely<3
happy 2012, everyone! ♥
home again in bed with my mug of earl grey and a champagne hangover after a laavely night. c: i hope all your celebrations went splendiferously, and best wishes for the new year! live it like it’s your last (whether or not you believe the “apocalypse” wubbish). ♥
