Things I enjoy…


I have been sat at this computer for nearly 5 hours and achieved the big fat zero. Perhaps it’s because I have been in an incredibly blasé mood all day. I started off by watching ‘Nick and Norah’s infinite playlist’ which is great. Watch it if you haven’t seen it.

I want to write a quick post about everything that I have enjoyed this week, which are only small pleasures, mostly musical, which have made the work load slightly easier.

#1. Not having tonsilitis anymore. I am fully appreciating the full use of my ability to swallow (roll on jokes about blow-jobs). No. It is more just for my enjoyment of chocolate/ solid food.

#2. Scott Pilgrim vs The World: Quick film review: Scott must fight Ramona’s 7 evil exes. Great script, awesome one-liners, Michael Cera, great use of street fighter style effects, fantastic soundtrack.

#3. Listening to the following bands: The Used, Taking Back Sunday, A Great Big Pile of Leaves, Jordan Klassen, Kishi Bashi

#4. Going for coffee with Karla

#5. Trying a Malteser Easter Bunny… I know, it’s January, but why not?

#6. Doing laundry (honestly, even this rates more highly than writing essays)

#7. Tidying my room (see above excuse)

#8. The satisfaction of emptying the dehumidifier

#9. Contemplating going to the gym, then deciding not to. Sweating can wait a few more days yet

#10. Talking to friends I haven’t spoken to in a while on facebook.




My life remains much as it did on October 15th, when I last wrote to the blog. Since that time my brother got a year older, I finally saw Ben Howard live and have developed an even stronger link to the internet. The only difference now is that I have 4 deadlines for the next 2 weeks as well as 3 exams. Why was I not prepared and why am I now choosing this moment to update my blog?

Like most university students, I find many ways to procrastinate. I don’t know why it happens, why is it so hard to focus on a few texts and answer a simple question in a very roundabout manner with references to your lack of background reading?

Why is it that cleaning the bathroom, calling your parents for the first time in three weeks and gasp, tidying your room suddenly have high importance on your agenda?
