I'm not posting a whole lot mainly because I don't do a whole lot. But I figured that I should at least make an effort since I'll probably get swept up in real life once I get to Oxford and this blog will become even more neglected than it already is. I think it would be good for me though. I could use some human on human contact. Feeling rather forlorn here.
Actually, Eva is returning! Even though our stay in Estonia will only overlap for a few days, it'll be good to see one of my high school friends again. Especially since I'm leaving in a week. I'm still not quite sure what we will get up to. We're planning to go out with Jamie so we'll probably reconquer Tallinn Old Town but the details are hazy. Will be awesome though. 10/10.
Anyhow, since I'm not feeling particularly eloquent right now here are the things I've done (and will do before my next post) since September 10!
So, most memorably, I got my tongue pierced again. Way more blood than I remembered but also way less of a hassle than I recalled. Eating wasn't even difficult this time around. Maybe my tongue has evolved. I bet it would survive in the wild. Go tongue! I would post a picture but I've never been overly fond of shots where my tongue is sticking out. Maybe someday. You'll just have to hold your breath and cross your fingers.
Also finished my prelim reading. Actually this is a lie. I have like 100 pages to go. But I have finished all the obligatory bits. Technically, I am a good girl. Don't argue. What I have learned from all this reading is that I really love ancient greek (I'm not gonna go back and capitalise it, reaching for the mouse is a bloody hassle) history because it is very dramatic. And I love the way ancient sources relate events. It's all just so precious. I'm really glad for my choice of subject, too. I thought that passing up on forensics at Exeter would cripple me with regret forever but thankfully I have seen the CAAH light. Will probably still go on to do forensic archaeology as a postgrad, though. Can't keep me away from science while there are still more tables to light on fire (my chemistry teacher sure didn't appreciate that, though).
I gave a surprising amount of relationship advice to a surprising number of people over the span of two days. Now, I don't have anything against it, that's what friends are for. Please come to me with your relationship problems. I care. I just find it ironic that I should advise people. All my relationships, with one expectation, have ended in a hail of fire and brimstone. They have been wildly horrible. Even during, not just after. So dear friends who I tried to advise, not taking my advice would probably be the wise thing to do. History has spoken.
My hair is reddish brown now. I am so fickle, especially when it comes to hair colour, and as I had some toning shampoos from my brunette days lying about I dyed my hair. Now, when I used this toner before, my base was dark brown so all it really did was give it a warm hue. With my ombre-ish hair though, the roots are pretty nice whilst the ends have that rather distinct reddish brown colour. Not ginger. That dark artificial reddish colour. It looks oddly good though. Sounds gross, but looks surprisingly nice. And it will wash out so I don't have to commit. Lovely. Maybe this is why none of my relationships work.
I also have a driving test in two days. Fuck my life.
I am planning on getting vaccinated after. And then I'll get froyo.
