The Fury And The Blogger

The Fury And The Blogger

Sorry for my absence. Uni got kind of hectic the past couple of weeks — this week, I wrote two essays in four days, finishing one of them at 3am and the other slightly earlier at 1am. Not to mention the fact that I was ill and basically stuck in bed for five days last week: that wasn’t much fun. All my energy’s been going into work, but now that lectures have finished for the term and I have no…

Successful Adulting

Successful Adulting

Sometimes, I make terrible life choices. Sometimes I’m sitting in my room, well aware of the ticking clock dragging me inexorably towards the deadline for this essay, which has been weighing on me for several days, and I think, “You know what I need? Business cards.” And then I go to Vistaprint, design a load of business cards (without even bothering to check if I’ve recently had any vouchers through — probably a mistake), and order them. Because sometimes, you…

Voting For The Emotional Destruction Of Revision

Voting For The Emotional Destruction Of Revision

This week, many things happened. Mostly I use my blog as a soapbox for whatever argument I want to present, or an exploration of something specific, but today I decided, “Nope. I’m going to talk about my life.” So here I am. Though I warn you, it mentions politics. I know, it’s radical. 1. I voted for the first time. I turned eighteen in January, even if I look far younger, and we had two elections on Thursday: the local…

I Am Not Published

I Am Not Published

I am not a traditionally published author. I have never signed with an agent or had a book deal. You can’t walk into a bookshop and pick up something with my name on it, unless it’s something I dropped, in which case it’s probably got my number on it so that you can return it to me, because I am brilliant at losing things and now take precautions. It was brought to my attention after I posted my rant about…

I Wear Many Hats

I Wear Many Hats

(Because I can’t resist, this post contains far too many pictures of me wearing a variety of hats. Hooray for visual puns!) I’m that blogger who disappears for weeks at a time and turns up with a post and doesn’t even mention that it’s only my second one that month even though I used to post three times a week. I’m the one who goes from super philosophical to posting random junk about nothing and never even apologises for it…

Sisterhood Of The World (Blog Award)

Sisterhood Of The World (Blog Award)

I’ve been tending to pass over blogging awards recently, though I’m always pleased to be nominated, but I wanted to post and had little enough to say, so I decided to answer these ones. I was nominated by Avon from Avon’s Babbles for an award called the ‘Sisterhood Of The World Bloggers Award’ which is an … interesting name. So, without further ado, I’ll get on with it. Rules Acknowledge the person who passed the award to you and provide…

Who, What, Why?

Who, What, Why?

It’s never seemed very relevant because most of the people that read this blog either know me in real life or from the internet, so they know what I’m talking about. But what if you don’t? I’ve realised that I’m always going on about editing and reading and how full my life is – and to people who are new here, that’s not very helpful. You don’t know what I’m editing. You don’t know why my life is full. Heck,…
