24th september

a blow by blow of todays outfit:

suede coat, second hand/tartan scarf, second hand/topshop unique SS11 totebag (free at the show on Saturday)/obama caricature tee, eBay/green cord jamies, topshop/casio calculator watch, amazon/

Today started twice for me. The first time at 7.30am when the fire alarms shrieked through our halls, summoning everybody from their 3 or so hours of sleep. We all stood outside of our flats with bleary eyes and it made for a very 28 Days Later apocalyptic sight as we assessed each others dressing gowns and various states of undress. Sadly I wasn't lucky enough to spot the guy who apparently with such dedication to safety had run from his room completely naked and casually stood in the bitter North West chill until we were allowed back inside for a continued sleepy slump.


Other notes of interest from the past 12 hours; I bought this diary at the Student Union after Sophie pulled it from her satchel during our meeting with the university newspaper. It makes me feel like I work in Parliament with it's regal red colour and crest. Also when I arrived back home after a couple of hours at the library getting to grips with the system and doing some research on The Graduate for a project I was met by 4 pieces of mail from friends and family. The nice little stack included a New York postcard from Patrice and a care package from my lovely Mum containing tea bags, post-it notes, some forwarded mail and a stash of sweets.

Ah man, I think the thing I miss most about school is going to the library to do research. I mean, I suppose I still could go...but it wouldn't feel the same. And also I'm not so sure what exactly I would research heh. Once for a class I got to spend a lot of time in the library of the Brooklyn Museum which specializes in Egyptian studies. All quiet and academic and no pens allowed inside, blustery fall weather outside. Hooow romaaantic ;n )

i fucking hated it when the alarm went off at 7.30am. its still far too early to be awake, but not quite enough time to get back into a deep sleep. i prefer a 3am alarm x

Why is it that ALL university fire alarms ALWAYS go off at weird, ungodly hours? Honestly, every single one of my friends who lives in a dorm has had that same experience! That must be so annoying!
