LT: 22, a lesbian immigrant from Texas who is living in the United Kingdom. Stuck around in North Wales for a while and studied English Literature with Creative Writing. Currently taking a MA in Scriptwriting at UEA and lucky enough to have an incredible girlfriend.
I reblog random shit and I occasionally post some of my writing, when time allows.
Personal posts happen, as this is a personal blog.
I'm currently attempting to recover from an ED. It's a work in progress. I post about it sometimes, but with TWs if applicable.
PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF I NEED TO CHECK MY PRIVILEGE.
I'd rather know, learn and apologise than be a jackass.
had to leave class early because I was ill :/
it was class with Rob Ritchie too
he’s such a badass, he once let a fight almost break out in his classroom because it “was an excellent example of conflict and resolution”
and I missed half of his class because I was sick
HOW DEPRESSING IS THAT
and I couldn’t go out for drinks / to watch Life of Pi with my coursemates because I was sick
goddammit I wanted to see Life of Pi again ughhh

Jesus. I’ve been in the library for 7 hours and I am nowhere near done.
I have, however:
- Read a great deal about the conventions of Film Noir,
- Researched the Hays Code (censorship brought in around 1934 that Film Noir had to adhere to)
- Started developing Robert Striker, my P.I.
- Started lightly researching Cincinnati
… Still need to come up with a plot and write 10 decent pages, though. Has to be done tonight, since I’ve got to redraft it and send it out to my entire course at 5 tomorrow.
Can someone come over here and bring me dinner? :/
Yeah, so, I’m getting ill. Milady has been sick for a while and I’m getting the same thing she’s had, with the coughing and the phlegm and the dizziness and YAY. Which means that I can’t do the pirate reenactment on Saturday, probably. Being ill is dumb. I’m not really the sickly type, tbh - but I know that my throat is going to be totally shot by the weekend. Hnng.
This has vaguely put off the planned update of VH, but I have made progress and things are a bit faster with writing now. I literally just jotted down two pages of dialogue / bits of prose from a particular section that I’ve been struggling with (and by literally, I mean ‘within the last 10 minutes’), so that chapter will hopefully be finished in the near future.
IDEALLY I’ll have it done between today and Sunday-ish, depending on how it goes. So, uh, yeah. I’m just gonna lie in bed with my notebook and my leopard for a while.
nothing like sudden, uncontrollable panic
fuck fuck fuck
fuck fuck fuck fuck
I -finished-. Five assignments were due this week, three were in on Monday at noon, two were in today at noon, and I’ve spent five all nighters in the 24 hour computer room in the last seven days. I am so crazy tired, it’s actually insane.
My last essay was really fucking terrible, and I barely made the word count.
I was in the computer room / at university from 2 yesterday to noon today. My mind is not working. D:
