"I'm a great believer in spontaneity, because I think planning is the most destructive thing in the world. Because it kills the human spirit. So does too much discipline, because then you can't get caught up in the moment, and if you can't get caught up in the moment, life has no magic. Without the magic, we might as well all give up and admit we're going to be dead in a few years. We need magic in our lives to take us away from those realities.

I cannot stop listening to The National. They were mentioned to me by my lovely friend, Lauren and they popped up on lastfm.com. It has developed in to a slightly mild obsession but his voice is just divine and warm.
Go and listen. I will probably be doing so on repeat. All day long...

Something else that makes me happy is what Maggie May is doing this week. Maggie is talking part in "What Does Poverty Mean To You Week" with Oxfam. She is walking 4 miles before she can collect 4litres of water for the day, with this being the average distance that a woman in Africa has to walk every day. Maggie does not live to boost her CV, she is one of those people in the world who we can genuinely admire for their altruistic tendencies and her love for helping others. Having a fresh and immediate supply of water is something that I abuse and take for granted every single day. The idea of this project is not simply about donation, it's about awareness and encouraging us, as spectators of their challenge, to question our own definitions of poverty and what it personally means to us.
Her blog is here. Please look at it and PLEASE remind her to drink the water she is entitled to! Girl's gonna make herself sick!!!

Life is still busy, still fun and this particular week, quite drunk.
Wednesday was a Cast Ceili. Irish dancing and stew and wine and birthdays and I WON AN IRISH RAFFLE. I have pulled a muscle in my back which may leave me crippled for the rest of my life but it was so much fun. The atmosphere was wonderful and it was so refreshing to get out of the student monotony. If you ever have the chance, GO GO GO.

I'm fine...oh Ruth, are you alright?
Yeah I'm fine. Do my eyes look sore or something? Like I've been crying? I haven't, they're just a bit sore today.
No no they're fine... You just look a bit.... And no one wants to hear this... You just look a bit worn down.
Oh nope, that's just me with no make up on. Most people are shocked when they encounter it for the first time. Sorry...."
Fickle, fickle face.
Damn you pale skin and permanently tired sore eyes.
I love make up, I truly do but I don't want it on my face every day. But I also don't have an urge to look like shit every day either. WHY DOES MY FACE MAKE ME LOOK LIKE SHIT?

I missed your birthday! Yesterday (and I checked to make sure) you were one year old!
That to me is completely crazy. A year has absolutely flown by, a year seems such a huge unit of time at the moment that it hardly existed, you can't possible comprehend all the tiny events that happen in your life that make up a year. I was going to write more on this but the Rent song "Seasons of Love" has popped into my head, rendering anything else I saw cliched and grotesque... Thanks Rent...!
However, as my friend Maggie May keeps on reminding me, I absolutely did not think I would be here this time last year. Looking back, I was so certain that I was going travelling regardless of a lack of funds and lack of a plan.
I would never have dreamed that I would be typing this in the library after being at a PhilSoc meeting, worring about LUDS posters and lines to be learnt while doing my Logic homework. Those thoughts would never have crossed my empty little mind.
In a way, it's comforting. Some things do stay the same, I'm in the same relationship, I'm still studying Philosophy with a sneakier greater passion for drama, many of my friends are the same, I still have very little idea what I want to do with my life after this year.
But comparing where I am now to where I thought I was going to be is very different and quite scary. Life can just change and throw random thoughts at you which you make you change yourself and your direction.
So thank you to everyone who has ever bothered to read this over the past year. As I've said before, I am always so grateful, I am in love with you for it.
This time next year seems so far away...

Oh, I just absolutely can't decide. Autumn is definitely here, it's not time for me to drag the big Topshop number out of the wardrobe but it's just not appropriate to be running around in cardigans anymore...

We have received and accepted your application. This will now be processed by the university Student Administration department, and a letter will be sent out to you in due course.
Hello MA Philosophy!
Eeeeek! For some reason, it has made me feel a little bit sick.
I hope I have made the right choices for the right reasons.
And until then, I am struggling between job interviews and the fact that a new job just seems pointless when I only have to do it for a month and a half before heading back to Uni.
And filming Hollyoaks with imbeciles. Shudder.

Wow. Well, I loved the film. I loved loved loved it.

But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep."
