  1. Ahaha it's terrifying to get a message from someone who seems to know you, but you have absolutely no idea who they are
  2. Oh I think I knew it was International Workers Day. I wonder if they're connected? Yes I think bank holiday is a red day. I think it used to be that just the banks closed, I'm not sure why they closed at random days in the year like the Monday after Easter or New Year's Day but nothing else did. Anyway, nowdays everything is shut on Bank Holiday. It's always a Monday unless it's at Christmastime and Christmas or Boxing Day are on a weekend, in which case we get Monday and Tuesday off as well. I don't know how they figure it out but everyone loves a bank holiday. Unless you work somewhere that's open on Bank Holiday, like a restaurant, in which case the tips are good but the day is loooong.
  3. Yeah, May Bank Holiday. We actually have two bank holidays in May. Not sure why... I think this one is because May Day (1st May) is a traditional day for... something? The sort-of start of summer/end of spring? It's Beltane in the Wiccan calendar today, if you're in the northern hemisphere. Lots of spring-y stuff I think.
  4. Mine is good! Um, very little exercise. I hurt my back a couple of weeks ago so I've got some physio to do and that is... quite painful. I am out of shape and way too good at injuring myself. I am so looking forward to this long weekend though. I love that little 'oh I don't have to do anything Monday' feeling!
  5. You guys I have THREE WEEKS of my diploma Well, less if I get my finger out and finish my final assignment. Then I am going to read, talk to my plants and get down to the serious business of doing very little
  6. Yeah May in the UK is a weird time. You might have a heatwave and die if you go outside at midday. Or it might be hailing and muddy. WHO KNOWS
  7. Congrats in your second dose! Enjoy your road trip, that sounds lovely. Okay we're gonna need pictures of the slutty priest look. I have so many questions. It's going all right! I'm 90% sure I've decided my next two patches. When I can be in a room with my mum again we're going to figure out a way to sew on the mourning band that came with... I want to say May Death Never Stop You? I can't remember. It's too big as-is so it needs some work to get it to stay on my sleeve.
  8. I'm all right now. Spent most of the weekend shuffling around and grumbling. I have so much crap that I dropped on the floor and couldn't pick up I will never complain about old or slow people ever again
  9. Congrats on your haircut! I need one too but I'm making myself wait until my diploma is done. I might cave and get my eyebrows done before then though. I'm on my way to having one eyebrow and I use my brows when I'm talking way too much, I need them to look sharp. 😅 I shouldn't have bragged about getting in shape, my back went earlier whyyyy Okay I know why, I sat down for way too long then moved way too quickly but still Ow
  10. Oh that's weird. Our tattooists were shut for AGES. I can't keep track of the variants either. We have Brazil, Kent (UK), India and South Africa? Yeah exactly. I've not been looking after myself all that well since Covid hit and I'm quite run down and a bit richety. I'm going to try to get in shape for MK, because I want to be able to dance for the whole set, and I have a year so I reckon I can do it. This morning I did some Pilates (not that hard? But I think I might hurt tomorrow) and took a long walk. It was surprisingly hot so I'm kind of gross and sweaty which is PERFECT practise for MCR. I'm gonna keep working on my Killjoy jacket as well ahaha I'm so excited
  11. Mmm I hear you. We are reopening, slowly. We're all so ready for a haircut ahaah. But there are new variants in some places? We do have good vaccine rates though so I think people are a little more confident than when they reopened last time.
  12. Ahh thank you! I have 2 more hand ins and a presentation help
  13. Realised I have 34 days of my diploma left... I know that's a weird number so I'm going to try to finish my work in 30 days because that's a calendar month. GOD I WANT IT OVER WITH
  14. I can't believe I thought this thing might last '2 months' Ahhahaaa
  15. I am so, so much more awkward now we've had lockdown. It's awful. Ahh that's so brave, I'd be too scared to go downhill skiing!
  16. Ahaha don't talk to me about things sounding more rational in your head... Adult friendships are SO HARD. It can be good to be intentional though? Like 'we are going to try to see if we are compatible as friends' is actually quite nice, because you both have your eyes open and your cards on the table. I hope everyone had a good Easter if you celebrate! I bloody love the UK's four day weekend. Haven't taken that much time off but I did sleep a bit which is nice.
  17. I think it's really easy to do that. It's a natural nesting thing, you go 'ah this might be useful one day' or 'this will make my home feel more XYZ' even if... it doesn't.
  18. I do that exact thing. I quite like minimalism. My brain is so, so cluttered and I seem to move a lot, so getting rid of a lot of my stuff has removed a lot of my stress.
  19. Ahhh I get that so much. It's good to look back and have a kind of grieving process for the past? I know some hardcore minimalists who only keep a folder of cards and suchlike, or photograph them so they still 'have' them.
  20. I actually went through the last of my school paperwork today. I found it in my dad's loft. I've kept a few notes and a binder that might come in useful, and I'm going to do a blog post with some of the funnier/more ridiculous pieces I found (a profile of Frank Iero in French...) but the rest is gone. I'm never, ever, going to need year seven maths and a lot of my school memories are bad. It was weirdly difficult to go through it all, though, I took about 6 months to go through all the boxes.
  21. Good for you! I think that if you think you have a problem with hoarding, you probably don't have a problem?
  22. I've spent literally a year going through my wardrobes and shelves, clearing things out and cleaning cupboards and whatnot. It really does feel nice to have less clutter. My brain is naturally so cluttered, and I've realised that physical clutter makes it worse, but a clear floor, neat shelves, etc actually help.
  23. Exactly! I really needed to sleep in today, because my dad and his gf are planning a really loud Zoom party tonight and my bed is literally above the speakers in the living room, so last night I got an early night and was all 'I'm going to feel so refreshed and ready for zero sleep Saturday night!' I still woke up at my usual-ish time. Tomorrow morning I will have had maybe 5 hours sleep and I guarantee I'll be awake naturally when the sun comes up.
  24. Oh my god I'M AWAKE EARLY TOO. I mean, I had to be up a little earlier than normal for a phone appointment, but I woke up at 5:30? Even thought it's the holidays, and even though I would love to be up at 5:30 naturally when I have work, because I am more productive when it's early, but lately I've needed more sleep. And I went to bed late yesterday because I was video calling a friend. What is this nonsense.
  25. Ahh have fun with your friends! I'm quite lucky, I've seen most of my favourite people either in person or on Zoom, because we've either made room for online things or taken advantage of the non-lockdowns in the summer. My school holidays are started ayyyy. I need to rest and chill for a bit, I think I've burned out a little. No academia for a few days!
