Why this has been the worst week of my life.

- I was so hungover Sunday that it was borderline disgusting. I also realized that I potentially lost friends and alienated people Saturday night.
- I've had sleep anxiety every night since Sunday. Monday night I got about 3.5 hours. I fear for tonight.
-Tuesday I had to use my passport at the bank because my pin had to be replaced. I then proceeded to somehow lose my passport/have it stolen, all during the 2 minute walk to work. Issue, I was SUPPOSED to leave for Italy today.
- I didn't go to Italy because I can't get a visa until I get a new real passport (the embassy issued me a temporary one).
-So basically, week ruined. I should be in Italy now. Instead I'm poorer, depressed, tired and have to spend 167£ to get a new visa.

And there's more stuff but blllaahhhhhhh. FML

OMG PLEASE let this be true! I was so bummed when Guillermo del Toro left the Hobbit, but if Peter Jackson directs it all will be well in the world. Kind of.

I was so hungover all day today. Like the worst ever. Not fun. Not fun at all.

People who Scare me

I realize they're just children... but still.

and here's a half-French, London hipsta covering Kate Bush:


-I'm going to fail my dissertation.
-I love my coworkers. Hopefully work keeps going well.
-I don't know if I can afford to live in London next year.
- I miss my books at home.
-I really need to reread Portrait.
-I'm getting THQ cake today. It's been far too long.
-I miss being an English major.
-I'm afraid I'll have no one to hang with next year. But this is probably a ridiculous fear.
-I just want to be 35 and settled with a husband and babies. I'm not sure if this is normal. But I know a lot of people who feel the same way so maybe it is.

I Have Read the Right Books to Interpret your Looks

You were knocking me down with the palm of your eye.

I have a serious love/hate relationship with Joanna Newsom. I want to hate her, so badly. When I think of her I think hate filled thoughts. But then, I LOVE a few of her songs to a level that puts them in my top songs category. So I think I need to have a serious assessment of my feelings for Joanna.

Anyways, here's the one speaking to me right now. You'll probably hate it. Or you'll want to hate it and love it like I do:

I am a 13 year old girl

Taylor Swift is the poet of modern women everywhere. Right? I'm actually watching this video and manically laughing because she's SO wise! And she's such a cutie, who would want to hurt Taylo? I also want a loft apartment like hers.

I also want to point out that this video has nothing to do with my life, yet my imagination can stretch enough to make it fit.

Whatever else is unsure in this stinking dunghill of a world a mother's love is not. Your mother brings you into the world, carries you first in her body. What do we know about what she feels? But whatever she feels, it, at least, must be real. It must be. What are our ideas or ambitions? Play. Ideas! Why, that bloody bleating got Temple has ideas. MacCann has ideas too. Every jackass going the roads thinks he has ideas.

-Cranly in A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.

youtube is the gift that keeps giving

This is actually my favorite movie scene of all time. Watch it before it's removed for copyright infringement.

I was browsing youtube for some mood-specific music and found a song where Nick Drake covers another one of my favs- Bert Jansch! And it's amazing.

and here's the original version in the amazing film The Squid and the Whale.

I "splurged" in Scotland and bought myself some congrats-for-having-a-job shoes from Office. And I basically haven't taken them off since. I'm loving the wedges look! As someone who cannot walk in heels, I'm happy to find a pair of shoes that have some height and don't make me want to collapse on the street. Happy days.

Dress down day at work today. Oh yea, I should mention that the job that was letting me go hired me full time. Crazy. But, more on that at some point. So, because it's a dress down day I'm wearing an England world cup themed outfit for my coworkers. Hope they love it:

Red American apparel dress
A white England World Cup 2010 t-shirt over it.
Sparkly gold toms.

PERFECT. And I made them cookies.

For years I have wished there was a song with my name in it. My flatmate last night mentioned one to me:

I don't really like it. But, it says Hayley. So, WIN.

Though mah sister has a much better song with her name in it:

I'm not sure about songs with my youngest sisters name in it... Oh wait I do. And it's better than the Hayley song, but I hate Jack Johnson. But I guess other people do.

So Bath was SO lovely. Like a really beautiful city architecturally, it was also really cohesive in its design. And the Roman Baths were definitely worth 10£. So cool! Also the weather was perfect.

And today I'm going to Stonehenge, so I can tick another box on my England list!

The sexiest thing I've seen all day

Thanks to lax Chinese Intellectual Property laws....

I can watch this scene on repeat. My girrllll Mercedes posted this a few weeks ago and reminded me of how magical the wedding in Rachel Getting Married is. Ahhhhhhhh. Also the groom is the lead singer of TV on the Radio!

Sorry about my lack of posts lately, I've been SO busy and my laptop's trackpad is broken, which makes things annoying.

Bath for the day!

Oh em gee. So excited. I hope I can easily identify all the places from Persuasion!

I watched this and I was scarily reminded of myself. Concerning.

Morning Beauty

Kenny G's older son is just as ravishing as his father.
I'm going to use the essence of his beauty to make today a really good fail-free day.

Oh to be a teenager

No comments. Just Watch it.

Dear Diary, Why Today SUCKS

So yesterday was a really good day. The kind of day that made me feel like I might have a good life and that everything is going my way. Now my life has become a f**king Smiths song.

1) I've lost my job (not because I did anything, just because the project I was doing is almost done). So now I have to worry horribly about money again and be a burden on my parents, which makes me feel really guilty.
2) It's awful out. Grey and rainy all day.
3) My wet shoes have stunk up my room.
4) Al and Tipper Gore broke up.
5) My future is scary.

Basically, I sang this song:
