Hello! I am looking to find someone to snail mail with and maybe share cute little gifts and stuff. I don’t mind about age or gender, but ideally would like a girl (I promise I won’t hit on you, I just prefer female company) who generally has the Tumblr vibe, likes cats and coffee and art and music, stuff like that. Bonus points if you’re from America or Italy! Basically looking to make a really good friend that is willing to share rants, advice, gossip, worries, and laugh with. Almost like an interactive diary, that tells me about their day to day life as well. I am v v busy so letters may be a little slow to come through, but I promise it would be packed with everything there is to know about me, and questions and gifts for you too! (I imagine it will be quite bulky, so be prepared for that lol).

A quick overview of my interests are:

I love to cook! I don’t have much experience, but when I cook, I feel awesome and I love every second of it! I enjoy reading occasionally, but I rarely have time to do so anymore. I like music of all genres, but I tend to mostly like melancholy lyrics. I’m still low-key in my emo phase. But I also like lots of uplifting pop songs, electronic music, and recently gotten into the lyricism of rap. I love cats and everything about cats and I really want a cat, and if you have a cat I expect like 50 pictures of it with every letter. I really like being cosy and comfortable, and decorating my room to be like the stereotypical tumblr bedroom with fairy lights and books, warm colours, etc. There is a reason behind that, but I’ll leave that for later! I am rambling a little now! I apologise.

27.09.17 - I had no classes today. What I should have been doing was researching and planning for an upcoming essay, but what I was actually doing was watching the new Lady Gaga Netflix documentary… Don’t be fooled - I may have a studyblr, but that doesn’t mean I’m that good at studying!

First and most important of all: I’M SO PROUD OF MY SPARKLESHARK TO MAKE IT INTO ADVANCED TRAINING!! Can we all just have a moment of proudness for them please? So awesome!! \o/

Now, to the comic, this little conversation made me kinda happy. Sometimes it annoys me that for some reason 99.9% of people seem to automatically assume I’m heterosexual - and are surprised when they find out I’m not and almost act as if I kept a secret from them until then (dude, to begin with, you never even asked!). 

(Btw, I totally realize that the derby context and being a cute fluffball with gf might have helped the impression in this case though. 😁 )

Today’s the day

At the risk of sounding like a stuck record (non-UK readers, please forgive me!), today is polling day.

The polls are open from 7 AM to 10 PM.

If you’re not sure where to go to vote, the address of the polling station will be on your poll card.

Please remember to vote, especially if you’re in the 18-30 age range. (The pathways to poke the Tories in the eye depend heavily on a good turnout amongst younger voters.)

You have power; use it.
