Song you listened to: “This Unavoidable Thing” by Evermore
Thing you Googled: “Red Sox merchandise UK” I can buy a figurine of Jon Lester or Brandon Workman (??? Really???) but I can’t get an Ortiz tshirt in this bloody country. JFC. #firstworldproblems
Drink: Lemondade flavoured Nuun
Best friend: Annette. We’ve been besties since we were like 6 years old. So like 34+ years. Insanity.
Sport you joined: I wasn’t allowed to play sports when I was a kid, but I did play on an adult softball league for a few years before I moved to Scotland
Vacation outside the country: London, London, London. Did I mention London? :)
HAVE YOU EVER:
Lost someone special: Ummmm, duh.
Been depressed: Since like forever. I have treatment-resistant depression. I’m still trying to find a med or combination of that actually works. Whether this ever happens, I have no idea.
Been drunk and thrown up: Just once. I am a huge emetophobe, so I tend not to drink much as a general rule. But this one time when I was a freshman I got totally wasted and was SO drunk I thought it was a good idea to make myself throw up. That was when I knew I was completely fucked off my tits.
HAVE YOU IN THE PAST YEAR:
Made a new friend: Yes! :) (You know who you are!)
Laughed until you cried: Probably not.
Met someone who changed you: Erm, no, I can’t say that’s happened.
What do you like about yourself?: ummmm…….
Biggest flaw: I’m controlling, jealous, and petty. I also have a hard time communicating and always think that people hate me, think I’m crazy or a loser, and a waste of space. I never know when to shut up. I communicate poorly. I have a terrible self-image. I don’t know how to make friends in real life. I get attached easily. When I like something, I get obsessed with it and go overboard. I always think things are about me, even when they’re not. Oh, that’s way more than one, isn’t it?
Zodiac sign: Libra
Hogwarts House: ummmm idk tbh
Average hours of sleep: 7-10 depending on the day and whether or not I’m having anxiety/insomnia issues
Time you woke up this morning: Like 10ish. The post arrived and it sounded like a bomb going off when the bacon-by-post and coffee delivery arrived and crash-banged through the mail slot.
Do you get asks on a daily basis?: I don’t even get them on a
monthly yearly basis HA HA HA
What do you post about?: Mark Gatiss. Seriously. Have you seen my tumblr? (And Rupert Graves and Mystrade and cats).
How long have you had this blog?: a few years, maybe 3 or 4? I’m not really sure. When I started it, it was mostly about David Tennant, so it could be even longer, but I’m not sure.
You wish you worked and lived in: London. When I am finished with my PhD in September I will have a better idea if that is feasible. I’d take anywhere in the UK at this point, tbh. I don’t really want to go back home, but I do understand and appreciate the realities of the situation and the fact that getting a work visa will be extremely difficult and unlikely, but a girl can dream, right?
Dream job: Teaching/Working with young people who have been bullied to help them get back on their feet.
Something you cannot wait for: Finishing this fucking PhD and taking a vacation when I am done.
If you want to, go for it! :)
