This will not turn into an explanation of absence 
Ok it might :XD: It's been awhile (once again) but for once I've actually kept writing whilst I've been 'away'! Last time I left off I was still doing A2's and now THEY ARE OVER YES :la: Come August 14th I'll know for sure, but unless I screwed up beyond logic during exams in June I shall be attending the University of York post September 29th to study English Lit & Education. I am super excited for this and have already began chatting to some people who have applied for the same course over Facebook and they seem to be really awesome, pleased to say there are some guys on what was an entirely female post-offer visit day! Long term hoping to be an English teacher or lecturer, but I've got a few years in me yet before anything that serious comes into play.

Since I last wrote I've began and scrapped 3 novel ideas and unfortunately I was due to co-write/edit a book with an old friend but I think that's up in the air still. I've since decided my love of poetry isn't coincidental, and I'm too busy to commit properly to a heavier project :XD: Hopefully Uni will mature my easily distracted mind and I will *finally* get around to a 'proper' read. I've also been on holiday twice, Somerset then Ibiza. Both were amazing with people who I will miss dearly when the end of summer sends us on our different paths, but I know there are some people that I couldn't forget even if I tried my hardest and will undoubtedly throw the usual NYE party to reunite a bunch of us. 

I've been reading a lot (did you expect anything less? ;) ) and have really gotten into Russian & Feminist literature. For my English coursework earlier in the year (thinking it was around March?) I chose to use Nabokov's 'Ada or Ardor' as one of my pieces for comparison, and although at times it was,ahem, challenging, I've gone on to realise that he's so much more than "that guy who wrote the creepy Lolita book"-quote courtesy of a previous member of my English class (elite). To prepare for Uni I'm reading a lot of American literature right now, as we spend a great deal of the first few modules discussing everything it would seem apart from 'English' Literature. (I'm 100% ok with this however woo).

Honestly I've no idea when I'll write again, but I thank everyone who has stayed with me kindly :heart: I hope these last few months have gone well and if not, then that the next ones until my next entry improve the situation vastly.

I write or take the odd photograph; so watch this space for song lyrics, poetry, photography and quirky journal entries :D
