Interesting interview with Manohla Dargis on Women and Hollywood, particularly on female (or the lack of female) directors.

The This is Why I'm Single Guide to Music for Desperate Crushes

In honor of my essay kind of being finished (and ignoring the non-graded econ essay I should be writing), I've decided to make a list of songs that throughout the years have become theme songs for every unreachable boy I have loved/ been creepily obsessed with. This post will basically express a dozen reasons as to why I am single. Fun Times. I'm also going to try to post them in chronological order from my first major college crush (MIIIIKKKKEEEEE- no secret there!) to the latest unnamed victim.

Key Line: Wait! They don't love you like I love you. -Which is repeated over and over
Why?: I used to sing this in my head a lot whenever I saw Mike 1st semester Freshman year. Creepy. I've since gotten over that and Mike and I have maintained a relatively healthy friendship. xoxoxoxo

Key Line: Cause I can't make you love me if you don't/ I can't make your heart feel something it won't.
Why: This has already been featured on this blog, but wow, what a perfect song for gals like me! It fits like every situation in my "romantic" life. Nice work Bonnie (though I don't think she wrote it)!

Key Line: Eh I don't even know what they're saying in the song.
Why: This reminds me of Oxford where it eventually became one of my theme songs for my most desperate/hopeless crush yet. Not so much about desperation, but a really pretty nice song about how (in my mind) my heart beats for a certain someone.

Key Line: Um the whole song speaks to me. But, I guess if I have to chose I would say:
"Basically, I wish that you loved me,
I wish that you needed me,
I wish that when I said two sugars, actually I meant three."
Why: This became the key song for the previously mentioned English crush. The whole song was basically my life theme song from the end of Trinity term till last December when I kind of got over it. CLASSIC.

-Conversation- Joni Mitchell (ugh I can't find it on youtube- LAME)
Key Line:
And I only say, hello
And turn away before his lady knows
How much I want to see him.
Why: This was basically my official theme song in general for a while. It's amazing. Enough Said.

Key Line: Been here all along so why can't you see? You belong with me
Why: So, I fell in love with this song over the summer but I had no crushes to associate it with, so I kind of just let it encompass every crush I've had. I'm kind of over it now, but I still love Taylo Swift, just not as much as I did a few months ago. But, I know one day it will re-enter my heart.

Key Line:
I've always been a coward/ And I don't know what's good for me.
Why: I love Kate Bush, the song's amazing, the video is amazing and it's my current theme song.


I'm on an essay writing food binge and my eye won't stop twitching. I hate writing essays that are 100% of a class grade. I also have a huge headache. I just want to lay in bed and read about the medieval era. Is that so much to ask? NO.
Oh dear...
