Wrapped Up In Books


Now you know that the time has come [And they said it would never come for you]

Done my Master’s. I don’t even know what to do with myself now. Granted, it’s been just over 48 hours since I submitted my thesis, it’s all I poured my time into – without it, I’ve felt just a bit lost.

Went out last night though to celebrate (was way too tired on Thursday) and have been sick all afternoon – I will not even look at Jagermeister again in my life. I feel wretched.

Now I need to pack (quickly) and get on a train to Edinburgh so I can sleep in the airport and fly to Berlin tomorrow. Back in a week-ish.

The Cleverest Blondes We Ken [What’s getting me through writing today]

EDIT: Just realised the lyric is ‘the cleverest blondes we ken’ [we know]. Damn Doric, I’ll never understand it.

Check out The View – the band, not the awful talkshow for soccer moms – from Dundee. I need something relatively peppy today to start me up and keep me going. Waking up at 6.30am today felt like sleeping in. There’s something wrong with that.

Playground Love [Air/The Virgin Suicides]

An awesome cover from one of my favourite books/movies.

Doctor: What are you doing here, honey? You’re not even old enough to know how bad life gets.

Cecilia: Obviously, doctor, you’ve never been a 13 year old girl.

This was hard, it was fun/We should do it again [The Rural Alberta Advantage]

It’s a toss-up between this song (Don’t Haunt This Place by The Rural Alberta Advantage, a Toronto band despite what their name would protest) and She & Him’s rendition of You Really Got a Hold On Me that I’ve been listening to non-stop for the past few days.

Thinking of baking cookies (chocolate chip) before working on the thesis for awhile.

And somebody spoke and I went into a dream [Young & McCartney]

My dream team – a Canadian and a vegan.

One thing I know about the rest of my life [For R]

We’ll live together again yet.

And I said, ‘I know it well.’

You said, ‘See, look it, that’s yours!
Stacked on top with your brother’s
See how they resemble one anothers
Even in their plastic little covers.’
