I want the world to stop

Every day I get some blog post ideas. But when it comes to it I simply seem to be unable to write. I’m having hard time these days focusing and formulating sentences.

The song of the day: Belle and Sebastian – I want the world to stop

Let me step out of my shell
I’m wrapped in sheets of milky winter disorder
Let me feel the air again, the talk of friends
The mind of someone my equal

I have the feeling that this will be on repeat for the rest of the week.
I’m very musically autistic. Last week I only listened to the song I posted here below, “Home”. Over and over and over again. Hardly anything else. And now I feel I’m done with that. I guess Belle and Sebastian are next in line.
Well, gonna go press that replay button again!

realizations and Edward Sharpe

The teachers’ work room on a Wednesday morning.
The physics teacher next to me looking at excel documents, formulas and calculations.
I’m sitting, feet up on my desk, reading a short story that I’m thinking about letting my students read.

I’m realizing, more every day, that I chose the right subject to study at university. Although I didn’t feel that way at all for the first year or so at uni. And I still don’t know what I will do with this BA in English.  I won’t be a teacher forever I think.
Still – it feels good to be content about the decisions I’ve made.

LOVE this song.
It was on repeat at my house for a few weeks this summer. While I sat by the computer writing the thesis.
I still like it so much. It makes me smile and want to dance and sing very loudly.

Saturday is it?

I woke up singing and dancing this morning. ‘Twas the strangest thing!
But
All too many hours in the company of my project/essay/something in the afternoon and evening have killed all song and dance in me. For today at least.
And the result of all these hours: mere 500 words.
Seriously. This is a dreadfully slow process.

And this is the last blog ever on this essay thing! Promise!

Fog

Quiet day at home.
Essay writing.
Coffee drinking.
Listening to this:

I’ve been strangely relaxed and calm today.
Which makes the anxious me wonder. What’s up? Did someone drug me or something?
And it was strange and foggy outside today. It made everything very mysterious when I went out for a walk.

Tomorrow: Best friends birthday. And I still haven’t bought a present. Help!

Sister Suffragette!

One of my Facebook friends posted this and I wanted to put it here – seeing that it is the international women’s day today.

I’ve watched Mary Poppins oh so many times!

Sunday blues

Sometimes I just don’t like Sundays.
Don’t know why really. Today I spent time with good friends.
We drank coffee, had cake and laughed. Then good dinner with family.
But it still was one of those Sundays that I don’t like.
I’m such an emo-kid, you know…

In a few minutes March will be here. In case you didn’t know.
I’m in a Fleet Foxes mood

I’m boring today

Have I mentioned that I hate housework?
Probably.
But I finally got my act together today and did some serious cleaning. Long overdue. AND I have changed the sheets on my bed and taken a shower. Everything’s clean. I like clean.
I also want to sort out some school stuff this week. Yes, it’s a get-your-act-together week at my house!

Bless!
