Oh man, I haven't posted in aaages, have I? This is mainly because I've been beavering away at my dissertation every day like a Wonder Woman obsessed beaver, and writing about a thousand words every day kind of burns me out on writing for other stuff, i.e fanfiction. I've got like, two fics just sitting there with dust on them, wondering why they haven't been touched since April. This is exacerbated by the fact that I really, really don't want to be doing this. I only really started my Master's course because I couldn't think of what else to do, and it's showing really badly in my work. I got my second semester essays back the other day and the feedback made me want to crawl into a hole and cry. Essays are NOT MY THING ANY MORE. This dissertation is exactly what I don't want to be doing right now. Or ever.

And of course it's a billion degrees, so even if I was enthused about this I'd still not want to do it.

All my brain wants to do at the moment is play LA Noire (Phelps, you are the crime solving RoboCop of my heart), watch Adventure Time and look at pictures of James McAvoy. Sigh.

Ugh, I'm sorry. Here's the TL:DR less whiny version: LIVI'S BRAIN HAS MELTED AND SO SHE IS GONE. NORMAL SERVICE RESUMES IN SEPTEMBER.

And now, a gif:



pooooooooooooooony

Urgh, I'm sorry I haven't really been putting up any kind of content recently. I do love blogging and reviewing and writing but the last week has sucked harder than an orchestra of vaccum cleaners. Basically, about this time last week I was told (via a secondhand facebook message) that my landlady housemate wanted me to decide wether or not I was doing a PhD within the next two weeks, so she could replace me if I wasn't staying on. I have only been doing my MA course for a little over month, and the work is just starting to bite.

Massive freaking out ensued.

Unfortunately this has rather been the rule rather than the exception for my life since about April/May when my long-term boyfriend broke up with me because I wouldn't commit to the possibility of marrying him, followed by 2 month's very awkward, very boring work with his mum. Then the kitchen flooded (it's only just getting back to normal). Then I returned to Cardiff to find most of my housemates obsessed with marriage, boyfriends and babies. So whatever brainspace I'm not currently using on coursework or my future, I'd rather spend on simple, undemanding things like knitting and anime about transvestites who fall in love with nerdy girls.

I'm not asking for sympathy- it will get better, I know it will, and putting this up here feels horribly like whingeing- but I'm just asking you guys to bear with me until it does, and letting you know that I haven't fallen off the face of the planet.

Well, I'm back in Cardiff and I'm not too sorry that the summer's over. I avoid talking much about my personal life on here (mainly because it is VERY BORING) but my life from May onwards was basically:

Me: Oh well, at least things can't get any worse.
Life: LOL WRONG

So I thought, in hope of happier times ahead, that I'd share with you one of the things that never fails to cheer me up:




I talked about the Goons during my 5 things lists, and this is them, basically. Shambolic and insane. Ironically, one of them was a brilliant singer and another one was a great trumpet player. I suppose you have to be very good to play that badly.

Feel free to share your cheer-up videos/pictures/etc in the comments!
