I'm glued to The Mindy Project after booking accommodation in the Lake District that turned out to be a closet beneath a staircase with only a bed and a tiny television set in it. I watched many a television program in that closet. Time to draw a story for Errol oxoxoxoxoxoxox
Champion Up North's 1st Birthday.

I'm currently listening to The Walking Who and dolling up for Champion Up North's 1st birthday party. Recently, I've watched the The White Whale on Leeds Dock, written a poem, and watched a band. I'm going to the party alone tonight so am wearing white to synthesise with the wall in case I know no one. oxoxoxoxoxoxox

Oh, Lorde ♥. Her album and Jasmine Pearl tea are the elixirs for many a predicament. An article I wrote about Leeds West Indian Carnival is published HERE. I initially intended to photograph Street Style except there were a crowd of coats due to the wintry weather. I will house the small collection here instead. oxoxoxoxoxoxox

I am ready to go home - oh, to have parents, proper teas, a garden, a fruit bowl with fruit in it. I mean, I guess I could have a fruit bowl in Leeds. A fruit bowl for one just isn't the same though, is it? I have two articles to write and not a clue what to say. I don't see the words arriving at 5am, no. oxoxoxoxoxoxox

English comedic panel shows are brilliant ♥. I can never watch enough! Recently, I've wandered through the Hollies, had a giant coffee, written poetry, visited a farm, spent time with friends and watched a Vivian Maier documentary. I'm currently collecting bearded men for an article - not such a terrible task, ha. oxoxoxoxoxoxox

I've recorded Happy Birthday You, started to write an article (after a blooming while!), and bought two tickets to Vance Joy. I'm a parade of thoughts lately. What to do when the one you once adored takes a fancy to someone new? I mean, I'm not daft, I know the answer - wish them well and give Orlando Weeks a call to see if he's keen. I guess it is all easier said than done. As Doris Day so wisely sings, que sera, sera, whatever will be, will be. oxoxoxoxoxoxox

An early morning, black coffee, vinyl records playing and a sleepy dog ♥. Recently, I've watched Boyhood at the picture house, written poetry, danced with the Champion folk, bid farewell to a workmate and worked plenty. Today is a much needed day of writing and listening to The Mamas & The Papas oxoxoxoxoxoxox

I am now in Leeds. On the last day of travel, I thought: I'm going to the seaside and I'm going to wear a blooming bathing suit, regardless of the weather. I walked into quicksand! There were a hundred or so statues of naked men along the beach so I was en route to one. I'm surprised there wasn't an assortment of stationary women trying in vain to reach it, ha. It was a brilliant adventure - many experiences and whatnot. oxoxoxoxoxoxox

I've had peppermint tea on the beach, accidentally got lost in the Lake District when following cows (luckily, I found a campsite an hour before it turned dark), visited museums, written poems and watched bands at the Cavern Club. I return to Leeds in two days. Travel is whimsical and lonely and wonderful - it will be odd to be idle once again. oxoxoxoxoxoxox

Currently in Northern Ireland. I am mostly assigned to dorms with no one else in them. It is almost as if they somehow know I imperatively need an empty 6-bed room to watch English comedic panel series and write poems in. Today I travelled to the Giant's Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. The majority of Game of Thrones is filmed (and Paul McCartney formed Wings) in the area - evidently, I am slowly introducing "fun fact" content for a more thought-provoking read. oxoxoxoxoxoxox
