1) I like being in places where you can go in and feel like staying a little longer, such as antique bookstores in a narrow lane or a cobbled street.
2) I like open spaces, like fields, morning sky, concrete ground, empty roads, rivers reflecting light.
3) I like pictures and photographs, especially when they are black and white. Also theatre and the occasional musical.
I could sit reading a book on a bench and be happy.
Ask and i will answer.
Life recently has been: London, work, gymming, Bristol, 8tracks playlists, cafes.
Handed in my coursework today and surprisingly, felt none of that familiar relief - just tiredness, and I crawled back into bed. Perhaps it is the knowledge or awareness that deadlines and the need to be meticulously precise right down to the smallest detail is going to stay put for the large part of the next stage of my life?
That aside, explored London for the first time in three years with a good friend and caught Les Mis at last. It did not disappoint and the difference in singing is so great I cannot start to compare………
Have you seen the advertisements in the tube? “Your newspaper is rubbish” followed by smaller text underneath “Keep our tube clean”. It made me smile for a while.
Good luck with exams everybody! Last one to go - for all we know we might miss it when other greater burdens come. I have that feeling that I will!@3 weeks ago
I sit opposite dark oak shelves bearing the weight of books and knowledge about “Ecclesiastical Law”, “The Law of Obligation” and “Legal Skills”. Didn’t frequent the Wills Memorial Library half as much last year but somehow this year I’m starting to make a trip down a bit more. Long wooden tables always draw me in, and in this wing where it’s relatively more empty, there is the high ceiling, my work and adequate breathing space….
Graduation trips planned! Looking forward to that but before, a routine is what is needed. Trips to London have become a norm and it is simply lovely to see people reading books on trains - what a contrast to my post last year about everyone using gadgets on their daily commute.
Went to the 40th floor of the Heron Tower to try Duck and Waffle recently. I have an acute fear of heights - it is exacerbated when I am travelling upwards and this movement is out of my control. But I managed to enjoy an extremely delicious dinner in peace, enjoying the view of city lights that felt like they had no end…….
Lastly, in this rather disjointed post, Mad Men has become my new favourite series! If not for the spectacular acting, whisky and cigarettes, and a dash of charismatic manliness, watch it for the top closet - you won’t be disappointed, I promise!@1 month ago
