I just want to say that I'm 3 songs into Frightened Rabbit's new album and it IS AMAZING. I'm so proud of my favourite fully Scottish Band (I thankfully can't count Belle and Sebastian in this category because conveniently one of the members is from Northern Ireland. Thanks Bobby Kildea for my making my favourite fully scottish band decision easier). Anywho, the album comes out March 9th but NPR's amazing All Songs Considered is kindly legally streaming the album now. AMAZING. Check IT OUT.

PS- the image is from the Frightened Rabbit concert Lianne and I went to at the Rock & Roll hotel in DC the night before the Inauguration.
Issues Right Now
- My sparkly toms smell awful after being exposed to a day of rain. They even started disintegrating. I think I'm going to have to reward myself with a new pair in April. Ah they smell SO bad!
-My national insurance stuff hasn't come yet, so I'm going to have to call on Monday ughhhh.
- It took my an hour to get back after getting into London from Oxford because so many lines were closed. I should have waited and gotten off at marble arch but nooo I got off at Notting Hill Gate. BAD idea.
- I have to figure out how to research my dissertation topic tonight while my friends are at a food party.
- I have no money, still.
- I have a lot of angst.
- I keep having imaginary arguments where I have the courage to say what I actually want to say instead of smiling and nodding and being passive aggressive.

Good things right now:

- I got to hang with Clare and Ruth this weekend.
- I'm going to Glasgow next weekend :) .
- I'll going to start getting paid.

I'm glad the negatives vastly outweigh the positives. YEY.
