I'm being horribly absent again and I'm sorry but I lose interesting things to blog about. To summarize:

- I've watched most of The Big Bang Theory - AND I LOOOOVE IT!!!! I rarely openly laugh at TV comedies but TBBT has me laughing every episode. ♥ Sheldon is wonderful.

- The new Harry Potter trailer and all the icons that are resurfacing makes me want to read Harry Potter again. And revive the fandom and write fics... Is that sad? If anyone feels like handing me Harry/Draco fics or Harry/Luna or... I don't know, anything generally good :D :D Except Harry/Ginny or really any pairing involving that particular redhead.

- I've applied for accommodation at the University of Glasgow! Woohoo! One step closer to September and I think on Tuesday I'll start figuring out the tuition paying thing. I'm horribly excited but slightly scared - where will me and my sister end up after flying over there? Where shall we stay? Should we bring pepper spray? Important tiny currently-irrelevant things like that...

Tomorrow I aim at cleaning my room. The probability of that happening is still uncertain.

Do you know what the perfect music is to listen to while cleaning? Well, for me it's my Natalie Merchant CD - The House Carpenter's Daughter which is basically a collection of old folk music interpretated by Miss Merchant. I have it as an actual CD (I know - how old school of me!) and I put it in the stereo as I spent most of the day cleaning.

My favourite song has to be this one: Which Side Are You On? written by a woman named Florence Reese who was a labour union organiser for the National Miner's Union somewhere in the States. The song was written in '32 after her husband had been arrested by the police (since there was a big struggle between the workers and the mine owners) and I don't know... I guess it's one of those songs that grows on you, but I really love it. It's sort of powerful.


(this was the only decent copy of the song that I could find on YouTube, so feel free to ignore the pictures to it, if you want)

There are a lot of other really good songs as well on that album - for example Soldier, Soldier but I couldn't find that on YouTube. It's really good soothing music on that CD if you want a recommendation.

And my room is absolutely spotless now! I feel incredibly proud :D
