is a wonderful wonderful person. I can barely restrain myself from constantly sending her emails saying ‘HAVE YOU READ THAT DRAFT I SENT YOU YET?? DOES IT SUCK?? WHAT CAN I DO TO MAKE IT NOT SUCK?? HELP MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!’
But I do restrain myself because that’s just good manners.
*returns to shredding every piece of paper nearby*
New Lush bath bar achieved - when my dissertation’s been all sorted I am going to luxuriate in the Brightside! CANNOT WAIT. Also I’m proud of myself because I managed to avoid buying any of the attractive cute things that sat temptingly in front of me at the checkout till.
Thanks for the tip, starklaufeyson! :D
Stressing out about sending the first draft to my supervisor? Distract myself by finally filling Medusa’s snakes in with gold pen.
Thanks to @misterlucian for the sage gold pen advice.
I have ALMOST FINISHED MY CONCLUSION. This is the stuff dreams are made of. Also, I’m considering having more than one pair of glasses. I’d forgotten I ordered some from an online company to try on (bought a new pair last week), but they suddenly arrived and I actually kind of like these!
NOW ENOUGH TUMBLR BREAK, BACK TO WORK.
This is what someone who’s about to write the rest of her dissertation looks like.
You can tell I mean business because I’m using a British Library bag - BUT I’M WORKING IN ANOTHER LIBRARY!! Plot twist, I know.
By this time next week
I will have ridiculous new glasses on my face. They are ridiculous because I was in a really odd mood when I bought them - normally I’m super conservative with glasses, but this time I bought what I imagine could be considered ‘trendy’ oversize frames. I sort of regret it already. Except friends assure me it was the right decision…
And, of course, I’m talking about glasses because I’m almost done with my dissertation and that terrifies me! Freedom. It is so close.
hypothetically speaking, if you were to invest in a crowdfunded fiction book, after the ebook, print book + ebook, and print of the cover (plus previous) levels, what else would you want for bigger…
Um!!! Yes, please! That sounds outstanding. I pledge allegiance to the idea of sentient scorpion underwear.

Things like badges & tshirts & tote bags are maybe bog standard & unimaginative but they still rock my world
chiz chiz, that’s what i like to hear!
This may seem ridiculous, but underwear? Cool (or creepy or whatever) interesting underwear. I tend to wear pants over my leggings when I skate (roller derby), so I’m always keeping an eye out for nifty underwear.
Also the badges/tshirts/tote bags, though. Also stickers.
You’ve heard me harp on about it. Now you can finance it. Perks! My face! Demons! Books! Modern English! Pictures! All the major food groups. Come and get some.
We’ve got until the 1st of October to raise £700. Can we do it? I hope so.
PROMOTE. P…urchase? please spend money on this, this is the best work I have ever done in my life and your bookshelves deserve it. Your eyeballs deserve it. Your mum deserves it. We all deserve everything as life isn’t a reward system. Please finance this campaign. Maybe I will say more things.

Mr Lucian is an excellent person and HOLY CRAP you guys look at this cool thing he’s making?!!? Already funded because duh, but I’m sure you can still pick up a perk or two…
This will be a self pity party. Apologies for the inconvenience.
New house has been secured, and I should be feeling excited but I’m mainly just sick with stress because of the reality of the Masters, trying to finish off the dissertation, and having to move asap. My housemates are all moving in next weekend, which is great, but I hate that I can’t move at the same time thanks to this stupid dissertation. I can’t handle the thought of moving until after I hand in, but now this feels like even more pressure to finish the damn thing - so not what I needed.
*self pity intensifies*
