The original Star Wars trilogy was just so good; I really did not love The Phantom Menace, and, perhaps because of that, despite making about three very serious attempts and half a dozen well-let’s-just-leave-it-on-in-the-background-while-I-homework attempts, I’ve only gotten about an hour into Attack of the Clones.

After those two, there is a huge gap for “next favourite” (like, huge-huge—I love Elton and Jim and Greg so much and they are all such ingrained components of my life that as much as I may enjoy the music of other individuals or groups, they can never and will never compare). There is no one else I listen to as compulsively.

Then I run on the treadmill for ten minutes and then cry because oh my god why do people do this i’m so out of shape i can’t do anything and, to be perfectly honest, I mostly just find it ridiculously boring, as I can’t find anything with which to adequately occupy my mind.
Then I stop caring and continue to live a happy life.
Do you ever just stick your hands in a large quantity of dry tea leaves? I think it’s one of the most beautiful tactile sensations.
That’s… probably unhealthy, right?
I just want it so badly and for all the right reasons but I’m so stupid and I haven’t done any of these fantastic research programs that all the other applicants will have done and I see how difficult and competitive it is to get in and that scares me like nothing else.
But I’m working on it! Don’t fret. I’m making quick and excellent progress with the books, and loving every one of them. I’ve just finished the third, The Prisoner of Azkaban, and enjoyed it just as much as—if not more than, because man, am I a sucker for Sirius Black’s character and omg Snape my bby—the first two, though most of my friends say this was their least favourite of the series.
As for the films, I plan to fill in the gaps (I’ve probably seen two of them in theatres—three, I suppose, as Deathly Hallows was in two parts) after finishing off the books.

And—though this is a fairly bad example because, while they look awful just as everything else I bake ever, they taste delicious unlike everything else I bake ever—stuff like this is the result:
Thanks to the lovely Emeline for forwarding this recipe along to me!

Although, I do find that height, visible collarbones, and finely-shaped noses make the human body a piece of art.
Being a country and folk-rock fan (well, actually, I feel like I can’t characterise my music taste into these two categories), I don’t often enjoy the music that gets played on the radio, but I can’t help dancing along whenever I hear “Price Tag” or “Who’s Laughing Now”—even, to a certain extent, “Do It Like a Dude,” which is totally not my type of song at all.
This video of her singing “Who You Are” in a NYC subway station made me cry the first time I watched it, too. She’s got such a great voice, and her songs actually have a substantial message, which, you have to admit, is more than we get from many other performers.
I just love her.
Hey, lovelies. I’ve decided I’ll sporadically be doing that ‘100 facts about me’ thing (though I doubt I’ll ever get to 100).
Feel free to send your complaints anonymously. ;) —but ‘know that you are loved by me and there is no annoyance in that’. … :| I’m awful. That movie made me cry… and Tom Hiddleston is beautiful.
