A place of sanctuary for my ramblings.

"Rident stolidi verba Latina" - Ovid

I now have 3 followers (!) which has inspired me to write another blog post.
Well, I now have a job at Waitrose in London, which is very exciting! Yesterday, I worked my last shift at the cattery I’ve been at all summer. It was horribly sad. I baked a cake for everyone to say thank you for having me and then cried all the way home because I didn’t want to leave.
I must confess to having the moving heebie-jeebies. It’s 3:30am right now and, despite the fact I have to be up early to shop and pack and sort out fees and flights and all manner of things, and despite Saturday’s very early start, I am awake pondering the direction of my life and the fact that the beginning of my Master’s also signals the beginning of graduate job/PhD application season. I don’t even know where to start, so I won’t (yet), but next week I shall be screwing my academic head firmly back on, the screws being the enthusiastic choosing of modules/buying of books and lots of caffeine. My goal for the year is to achieve without the neurosis, alcoholism and nicotine of the final months of my undergraduate degree. We’ll see how that works out!
Anyway, heebie-jeebies had and resolutions made, it’s time for a snooze. I hope to wake up to find Britain still being Great. I think it’s outrageous that I’m not allowed to vote in all my one sixteenth of Scottishness (which is apparently a word, according to my phone…), but hey ho. Or och aye.

A Very Boring Introductory Post in which I Discover that I Am No Good at Blogging

Salve(te, I hope…) reader(s) of this blog! (I know there is at least one of you because I’m going to make my boyfriend read it, just so I know someone’s reading. I know, how sad.)

Well, lots of people have been blogging about stuff they’re doing so I thought I’d give it a go too and have a proper blog, as opposed to the old thing where I just used to reblog pictures of Mr Carson and Mrs Hughes from Downton Abbey, with hashtags along the lines of “#CRYING”, “#SOBBING” and “#secretlymarried”

I hope that, now I’ve graduated, I might go on to do something vaguely interesting and possibly worth reading about, so this is going to be where I attempt to document my travels into the world of Postgraduate Study and Inevitable Bankruptcy in London. 

I’ll probably blog about the following: Classics, Leonard Cohen, food, cats, what I’m watching on telly, London, jobs (or lack thereof), booze, love, life and the universe (but only from the perspective of an Ancient Greek because I hardly know anything about modern science). Please follow me if you’re interested in any of the above. I promise to do better. Recommendations for blogs to follow would be great too!
