I’m really hesitant about that Dog’s Purpose video because not only was it PETA that released the video, but TMZ is one of the most unreliable news sources available. I’d wait a few more days until more information is released before jumping to conclusions. 

This is important enough to post on my 500+ follower blog, and not my 5+ follower Elder Scrolls sideblog.


// So I just wanted to share a link to my team’s fight highlight video 

I was tagged by @athenaeyes and I’m kinda bored so here goes nothing!

1. I have a scar shaped like a dolphin on my right knee

2. One time I met Princess Anne by accident at the Southampton Boat Show

3. I have the same surname as all of my cousins because my mum’s sister is married to my dad’s brother

5. My favourite Disney princess is Cinderella

6. I taught myself to draw using tutorials and referencing other people’s styles on deviantart

7. Andrew Scott has called me ‘darling’ 5 times in my life

8. My due date was December 9th, but I was born exactly 3 weeks late (sorry mum)

9. My favourite Sherlock Holmes story is The Copper Beeches

10. I saw a ghost when I was 5 but I didn’t tell anyone until last year because I didn’t think they’d believe me

11. My family have called me 'Fred’ since before I was even born, so I respond to it like it’s my actual name

eleven facts.

@eveningflares tagged me in this 11 facts meme the other day, so here we go!

okay i have literally no idea where to go with this so let’s start with the obvious:

  1. I just started a new job this month! I’ve been job searching since march 2015 (temping since september 2015) so this was a huuuuge thing for me. Also, my new boss is crazy (but also amazingly kind, so it works).
  2. I’m currently writing a paranormal-y murder mystery with @proserphone! It’s very exciting and I am enjoying it very, very much.
  3. There is little I love so much as curling up with a book or two and a cup of tea in one of the old, wingback armchairs I have in my room.
  4. Although I am rather a loud person, I didn’t realize I was loud until halfway through college… because my brother is louder. Everyone else around me knew, mind, but I was happily oblivious.
  5. One of the other reasons I didn’t realize this is because, despite being loud and talking too much, I am also quite introverted & generally prefer being either by myself or with a small number of people. Big parties are very much not my thing unless I’m hosting. Hosting/being in charge is fine–otherwise they stress me out.
  6. I love baking! People always say that cooking is for the creatively minded and baking for those who like exacting directions, but tbh I think they’re just being easily spooked. Once you know the structures of baking–say, for example, making cookies–it’s very easy to move freely within that, and it’s one of my favorite things to do.
  7. I’m a very visual person. I didn’t used to take notes this way, but as I’ve learned more about my thought processes and how I work with information and retain it, I’ve started making my note-taking reflect that. There’s a lot of arrows and boxes and writing style variation and movement/flow on the pages nowadays that was totally lacking back in high school and college. It’s been infinitely more helpful when I’m looking back at things.
  8. I’m going to a wedding next weekend! Mostly I’m excited because it’s the only wedding I’ll get to go to with my best friend from kindergarten that one of us isn’t in (she got married a year and a half ago, and I was in the wedding, but that’s the same as just both being guests). 
  9. I designated 2016 the year of internet friends, and I got to meet up with FIVE of them! It was one of the highlights of my year, meeting a bunch of ladies I’ve loved from afar~ Hopefully I can meet some more of you this year!
  10. I journal every night–I try to write at least a page in whatever notebook I’m using (usually a standard sized moleskine). I’m an external processor, so getting emotions and experiences out onto the page helps me sort through and process everything a lot better. It’s not for everyone, but it’s been very helpful for me.
  11. Before I started this, I was talking to Basia. “WHAT IS INTERESTING ABOUT ME,” I typed. “I need tea.” I went and got tea, and when I’d gotten back to my desk she had told me that I must include the fact that almost anywhere I go–it doesn’t matter if it’s downtown, across the country, or internationally–I will run into someone I know. I don’t know how this happens or why it happens–it just does. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
