I Forgot to Say

Yesterday on the street I walked right past:

Andre J, Paris Vogue cover model and all round pure inspiration. I had to work extremely hard to maintain my composure. Two days with celebrity spottings in a row! AMAZING.


As many may know, I am obsessed with pigmy hippos. Hippos used to be my fav animals, but then I saw a pigmy hippo and my life changed (not really). Well, I was just browsing the guardian when I spotted this picture:

Last IO Seminar

I had my last IO seminar today. It was fine. I'm not going to cry about it ending, but I will miss learning about all the ways America is evil. Though, I'm sure I'll get plenty of that in later lectures. Though, that is not to say it was anti-American. I don't think the people in my seminar hated America, I just think they wanted to point out the not so great things America occasionally does. Which, is a lot better than the blatant anti-American shit I got from one particularly evil student in Oxford.

In around 10 days I'll be home. But, in the meantime I have Christmas markets, parties and carols to look forward to. I should also edit my paper. Wah. But, on things I have made progress on, I'm almost finished with my a scarf I'm making as a Christmas present for someone who doesn't read this blog. RUDE.

Sad Plant

For weeks I have been staring at this sad plant someone left in our bathroom. A room that is often filled with steam from the shower, and heat from this heat fan people love turning on. There is little light in the room and hardly ever fresh air. Today the plant looked close to death. So I took it to the kitchen, gave it water, pruned it, and put it in the light. If the dummy's put it back in the bathroom, I'm going to steal it and put it in my room. VICTORY

I have No


I finished my essay on climate change and violence, but it's so awful that I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to basically rewrite it. Well, I'm sure a lot of it can be saved, but I need to make an argument. Wah.

And now I have to do my seminar task for my 2pm seminar, but all I want to do is knit and eat. I'm also getting stressed about finding a dissertation advisor, though I've done nothing to get one. At least I have a carol concert to look forward to tonight hellzz yeaaa.
