I am so tired of people telling me what I can and cannot post on my own blog.
“I like The Eiffel Tower because it looks like steel and lace.” ― Natalie Lloyd
As childish as it is this song has been playing on my ipod on repeat every December for the past three years as I aimlessly wander around Heathrow in the early hours of the morning. While my adult home is in my adopted country half my heart still resides in my childhood home. Even I cannot resist the pull to make my heart whole even if it is for a short time. I don’t know when I’ll be able to see the States again and yet there is no use dwelling on such sad thoughts, I will make the most of this holiday and be thankful that I was able to have this time with my family. I’m sure most of you will agree that while skype is beautiful it’s nothing compared to the warmth of a hug.
Unfortunately I don’t have a photo of me on a plane. (Most likely because I’m usually found curled up in a ball glaring at everyone to leave me alone while I play ‘I-bet-I-can-finish-this-book-before-the-plane-lands’.) My mom took this of me when we were coming back from the Jane Austen Festival in Bath (look! You can even see my super awesome iphone cover!!!).
I’m in transit tomorrow so please wish me a safe journey and spare a small prayer for all of those traveling tomorrow that we might safely reach our destinations. See you all stateside!
Just once I want to turn on the news and hear this!! It’s cold, rainy, I have a fitting, and even though Sherlock has made me wary of taxis I will be taking one from the station to uni.
Well Paradise it’s been lovely, I can’t even begin to put into words how much I have enjoyed our Tuesdays together. I’m having a hard time trying to come to terms with the fact that we won’t see each other until next year. I graduate in June so if all goes according to plan and I’m able to find a job I will be able to sit down in the fall of 2013 and watch you
and Sherlock. It’s going to be a long wait.
I’m going to go cry in the corner now.
It’s been six months since I discovered this fandom and I’ve never been able to bring myself to watch the last episode.
After 30 pages my dissertation draft is finished and because I swear I’m developing carpal tunnel (Dear Lord I’m only 22!) I think I need to take a break from the computer and sewing machine.
I’m going to make a cuppa, get the tissues, and watch the last episode.
I have a massive dissertation presentation tomorrow and because I like to always end powerpoints with something that leaves the audience smiling I have decided that my last slide will be of Prince Arthur, 1st Duke of Connaught and Strathearn in fancy dress.
He is not amused.
