1. before i left for my semester in london in 2012, i was in complete denial over my impending move and all i wanted to do was lie in bed and think about the x-files (i had spent nearly my entire winter break watching the entire series). i’m afraid i’m in nearly the same position now, except i’m moving to glasgow for a year and i’m thinking about game of thrones. i just want to lie in bed and read the books and think about game of thrones. i don’t want to go to school. don’t make me.

2. i’m talking to some folks on the facebook page for university of glasgow postgraduates and i’m like “GUHGHH all these people seem so NICE and NORMAL and i’m just a flippin’ weirdo no one is going to like me and i’m going to make no friends.” no no no no. i am a nice person and i will make friends! it’s scotland! i’ve never not made friends in scotland! they love me over there, that’s why they gave me money to attend their university.

3. it is almost a necessity that i have a place to write - i mean, really write - about my experiences. i thought about starting a new blog but why start a new blog when i ALREADY HAVE A BLOG? one that i started for the express purpose of writing about being a yankee in the UK. so there you have it. i’m going to write more in this tumblr. at least until i make a friend.

besides that, i leave for europe (iceland, specifically, then london, then glasgow) in exactly a week and right now i don’t know what to do with myself. the void is calling, and calling hard. i just want to be out of limbo and settled down in my new life. except BÁRÐARBUNGA might thwart my plans after all.

content warning: i am a spoiled consumerist little lord fauntleroy

so i had to do some major banking today because my mom sent me the money left in my grandmother’s estate account after she passed three years ago as well as 5 $100 bonds that were given to me by great-grandmother when i was born AND i lost my debit card and needed a new one AND i wanted to close out my useless savings account, and the young woman helping me out was super nice and sweet and competent and i told her assistant manager exactly that -

- so then i decide to head over to sephora to buy myself a few treats because i need to stock up before i move to a country WHERE THERE IS NO SEPHORA. i have a little chat about beautyblenders with the cashier and after she rings me up she says “you know what, you’re so sweet, i’m going to go get you a present,” and comes back with a goody bag full of samples! i couldn’t help but think it was some sort of karma, or maybe she just took pity on me because my voice is still completely gone and i had fajita stains all over my jeans. 

but seriously - what a great day for customers and customer service alike.

Here is a pic of Grace Jones shoving cake into Divine’s mouth at what I believe was Grace’s 30th birthday party…you’re welcome!

It’s like “The Creation of Adam,” but relevant to my interests.
