  2. going lentil mad

    Often at my family occasions studentdom seems to prevail as a novelty. “Are you studying hard?” “What are your lecturers like?” “How’s the lecherous binge drinking culture treating you?” One other often touched upon subject is the student diet, you know, that one where you eat nothing but turkey twizzlers and wash it down with pure distilled ethanol or, if you’re going for that quirky student allure, diesel.

    A lot of people I know supplement this delightful diet with actual things that the UN, NATO, the G8, The Famous Five, the Fantastic Four, and the wider world have accepted as food. I, for one, am particularly partial to couscous and lentils. To my family, these are things that are alien. “Where’s the meat,” they cry, “and do you serve those with chips?”

    I went for a bike ride and a pub lunch and it was idyllic. Then my mom got bitten by a shetland pony and the bubble burst.

    I just had a debate with my mother because she didn’t believe that mental illness existed and I defended it vehemently and now she’s gone to bed and is shirking human contact and I don’t know whether to revel in the irony of the fragility of human mood or to just dwell on my own.

  12. taking over

    Tonight I took charge of my student newspaper which is really quite cool. Of course, it is equally daunting too - we’ve got creditors to pay back, we’ve got no money to pay them or the printers and we’re struggling for writers. Maybe I’ve taken over a sinking ship but then again maybe I’m going to resurrect it, make it strong again and give my writers, and potential writers, the platform that they need and want.

    It is weird though because I’m not the best figure of authority, I like to think I am but I am not, I’m a pessimist at heart and struggle to overcome that but when I do I’m a ball of productivity, alert at 1am again, wanting to get things done and to a high standard. A defeated perfectionist if ever there were such a heinous personality combo in a human.

  13. Today I ran 10.5km and it was all very soothing on the soul but now, in the dark and with the serenading sound of traffic outside, my head is pounding and my eyes are glued open. One day I’ll be able to sleep soundly - or so I dream.

     
  14. I love my bedroom wall, it’s full of postcards and photos from where I’ve been and flyers for club nights I’ve been to. It is my memory bank.

    I have been invited to an occasion that includes the statement: “The landlord says we can do whatever we want as long as it doesn’t damage the structural integrity of the building”. Cue my flatmates getting the tools and jumpsuits out for some partition wall destruction…
