may 11th


Apologies for the absense! The internet in my halls of residence has been kaput for the last week and I've been spending lots of time in the library (quite a rarity) with exams just around the corner and the conditional incentive of a semester studying abroad in Massachussetts as a kick up the arse to do well.

After a bit of an eBay spree recently my Hilfiger jumper has arrived, as well as a rather 90s brown halterneck dress (a word combination which produces a bit of a baffled 'oh?' face amongst my friends) that I'm considering as an option for our end of year Ball this weekend. Re the Hilfiger jumper, it does feel sort of lame to be wearing it when I study American studies. Bet you wouldn't find Physics equivalents with SCIENCE written across their top and a really really enthusiastic grin paired with a double thumbs up. I thought not..

Also this weekend I spent far too much time and money at new port of call WH Lung (which incidentally would be the perfect name for a Chinese WH Smith equivalent?) with the intention of buying my best friend a birthday present and then leaving with lots of seaweed, white rabbits, lychee juice and miso paste for myself. 

In other news this week: 1. Tonight I made myself a delicious dinner of udon noodles, spring greens, seaweed, in a miso and soy soup. scoff scoff. 2. My friend Joe has been asking people whether they have extention leads so that he can sit next to a reoccuring cute girl in the library and still be able to plug his laptop into a socket. See! The romantic potential of the library!

Romance in the library reaches new levels at my college, where people live in the library...we have a resident smoochy couple who, like, SNOG loudly in front of everyone and, like, LEAVE for an hour then come back with swapped clothes.

And one of them looks like an assassin. For me, (library) romance is dead.

In other, lighter news, great jumper! Jel. x

i like the sound of that udon noodle dinner. and i love the look of that jumper. and at sydney uni some people go to the 9th floor to mack... except that the 9th floor is where all the american studies stuff is so i constantly have to shield my eyes from touchy feeliness.. urhghghghg.
