my first toot! can't wait to spill some nonsense on here, but first a little #introduction 🐾
i'm currently studying a master's in contemporary #literature + theory (the fifth year of my academic love affair with literature + philosophy) so expect plenty of book-related thoughts 📚
other fun goals shaping my life rn: wanting to run a half-marathon later this year and my introduction to the long road of learning japanese!
in short, i'm a bi, hummus-loving, water-enthusiast who loves to cry x
blair witch project; spooks
y'all i have had to rewatch the blair witch project so many times for this paper now (not all in one sitting obvi and in choppy sections non-chronologically) but the ending still without fail gives me the heebie jeebies; heather is just so good at scared-heroine-screaming i love it
it’s just so exciting thinking about reading *for* fun again rather than doing reading which is super fun but also for my studies 📚
needless to say i’m struggling to focus on anything
it’s crazy how soon it’ll all be happening given that i’m still studying my master’s 🌳 i hand in my dissertation 9 days before i leave for japan 🌪
nearly half a year, this has without a doubt been the longest application process i’ve ever been through - - it’s been so valuable practicing patience and having to let go of control x my emotions have been on such a ride and i’m still feeling such disbelief that any of this is real 🐢
i submitted the application in december last year, found out i got through to the interview stage in february, had the interview in march, and have just received the interview results yesterday three months later 🥵
peppermint tea has been made beech 👊👊👊
have had a lovely evening of noodles n gaming - now it’s time to kick butt in a #latenightwritingsesh (tooting to hold me accountable 🐥)
