Life Updates: Current Life in Verbs

I had the inspiration for this type of post whilst reading someone's blog but for the life of me, I can't remember who's! But I think it's a wonderfully concise way of updating you guys on where I am in life, what I've been doing and loving and reading etc, without rambling on too much (which I know I have a tendency to do!). This is going to be a fairly regular addition to my blog, perhaps not weekly, but when I feel like I have had enough going on to write about!

reading // I Capture The Castle by Dodie Smith, one of my dear friends and penpals mailed this book to me out of the blue because she knew I'd love it, and then one of my best friends at university also informed me that it's one of her favourite books too! I've only just started it but I can tell already that it's going to be a wonderful read.

listening // Aaaaaall the Disney soundtracks. I'm having one of those "Nope, I'm not a grown up, I refuse to accept my responsibilities" weeks and those kind of weeks are commonly accompanied by an awful lot of Disney. After all, a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, right?

hoping // That all the work I have to start this coming week with deadlines at the end of the month will miraculously do itself. Either that or I'm suddenly blessed with the brain of someone greatly more intellectual than myself so it'll be less of a slog when I finally get down to doing it all.

watching // Disney films and Doctor Who. The urge to watch Disney films is completely induced by the aforementioned complete denial of my adulthood. Doctor Who however is one of my great loves, and for some reason I haven't watched much of it for a little while. However whilst I was eating my tea last week, an episode was on the TV and suddenly the urge to watch it came back and hit me. This week I've been ploughing through Series 7, although the next episode is The Angels Take Manhattan and I haven't been able to watch that since it aired due to the immense emotional trauma it caused, so wish me luck!

writing // My Creative Writing module portfolio. This is basically how we're assessed, so I've been working on a couple of poems that  I'm not 100% sure about yet, but I've also decided I want to write a short story based on a song called The Fog by Rachel Sermanni (who I'm going to see live in a few weeks, eeek!) because it's a really thought-provoking song and every time I listen to it I'm dying to know the story behind it. So I figured if I'm never going to find out the actual story, I may as well write my own!

anticipating // Home on Thursday to go and see Bear's Den with my dad and then getting to spend the whooole weekend at home until having to come back to university for my final week of lectures as a first year. Well hasn't that come round quickly!

What's been happening in your week? I hope it's been considerably more exciting than mine!
Until next time, all my love
