A couple of mornings ago I got half woken up at 7.30, in the middle of a zombie dream. It's my second so far this year and I haven't even watched anything with zombies since I got back from Germany.

It was different to the first one. I was at home and could see that there were people and zombies in the street outside, passing quite quickly by the windows heading all in the same direction. There were emergency instructions for any survivors to leave their homes and make their way to a centre somewhere, but I was too afraid to leave the house so I didn't go.

I wish I could remember the ending.

Random fact of the day:

I hate high fives so much that they make me feel slightly physically unwell. I think I almost gagged when I was thinking about high fives last night.

How is that for a weird, possibly irrational hatred?

The first time I saw you
I knew it would never last
I'm not half what I wish I was
I'm so angry, I don't think it'll ever pass
And I was bad news for you, just because
I never meant to hurt you

today i left work 25 minutes late and frazzled to the most amazing sunset i have seen in a while. it was all purple skies and soft pink clouds, like fluffy strawberry ice cream. by the time i had unlocked my bike it was pretty much gone.

oh no! I can't listen to Augustine by Patrick Wolf without being reminded of unwinding after a day of German farm work, or Hospital Beds by Cold War Kids without remembering waking up in someone else's bed, in winter, covered by a sheet and a well thought-out series of blankets (the blue blanket was the nicest one). 

But the good thing is that my written exams are over, I finally submitted my German culture essay and my brief report about a pilot intergenerational project that I took part in. Five minutes of speaking about death threats towards Knut der Eisbär on Thursday morning and I will be done! (Except for this 350 word essay that I forgot to submit about two months ago...)

So, who wants to help me work out what to do with my time? Anyone have a job that they would like to offer me? Or have a friend that they would like to set me up with? A fling sounds like a lovely way to spend the summer.

ps. I watched "Walk the Line" yesterday and, oh wow.

I've done nothing but sometimes I feel burnt out already. Just the thinking- before trying to make banners, before thinking of the essays and the articles that I want to write- exhausts me.
But I'm hopeful sometimes too. And passionate. That's the important thing.
