My only regret is that
I didn’t tell enough people
to fuck off.
so I went to our first german induction things which were actually pretty good. It’s so weird for the department to be super friendly for the first time ever, and it’s a really nice atmosphere to be in- I think we’ve all learned a lot on our year abroads, mainly, not to be arseholes to one another.
We had a year abroad “celebration” event with free wine so of course we went along and got super drunk and hopefully didn’t embarrass ourselves or talk too much bollocks in front of and while chatting to our lecturers. Love drunken academia.
After Liv and I went to visit a good friend which was really nice, and we were all way overdue a catch-up. More wine was drunk, and about 80% of conversation was sex-related. Perfect.
You know, to say RuPaul’s Drag Race is a mostly ridiculous, tongue-in-cheek, over-the-top (but brilliant) show, it does have a pretty important and deep tagline at the end of each episode.
"And remember, if you can’t love yourself, how in the hell are you gonna love somebody else?"
can I get an amen up in here y’all?
Why do we swipe the way we swipe? And are those assumptions “just human,” or indicative of larger, enduring, and possibly destructive cultural divides?
This article is super super interesting and really resonates with me, someone who constantly over-analyses the reasoning behind my tinder choices.
yeah so i slept with this dude last night and idk we were chatting a bit during the sexy time and for some reason his birthday came up and i was like “wait 25th of september? DUDE me TOO, wtf thats such a coincidence” and he was like “really? we have the same birthday? are u fuckin with me?” and i just looked down at his penis literally inside my vagina and was like “well technically yeah” and he was like haha nice one and high fived me
I have never felt more confident, more in control of my life, more able to be myself without giving a shit about what other people think of me, and more comfortable in my own skin than I do right now.
And it’s a really fucking good feeling.
see how little we get taught about history - I never had any idea why Malcolm X used the ‘X’.
How come I didn’t know this
Also that crusty old white man called the named ‘gifted’. Jesus.
'GIFTED' Kill me
I can’t believe it never occurred to me not to wonder why his name was Malcolm X.
all of us are now here!
it’s exciting to be together and to have more stuff, and slowly but surely the place is coming together, but it’s also super tiring to be doing so much admin to try and get all the little things sorted out. But yeah, am feeling pretty damn happy so that’s grand.
Am about to head out to my first rehearsal with my old a cappella group which I’ve been let back into without having to re-audition which feels a little strange and kind of unofficial, but I think they are happy to have my help for freshers’ fair especially as we’ve got a couple of performance slots. So I’m hoping that whatever songs are going to be sung will be easy enough to catch up with- I have until friday anyway. But yeah I’m not sure what to expect- there are lots of new characters in the group, some of whom I’ve heard not so positive things about, so I’m hoping I won’t make any enemies tonight or that people won’t piss me off to the extent I think they might… WE’LL SEE!
