Legally Blonde

Day 28 – I’m Tellin’ Y’all, It’s A (Self) Sabotage

I had my very last day at work today. Bittersweet. Bye bye, Angel face!!

I’ve been feeling super down lately. Totally my fault though. I’ve been eating badly and not exercising. I think I need to go back to my daily spin because obviously all this time in front of the computer is making me angsty. Maybe it’ll get the endorphins going or something. I’m going to try to keep my mood up. There’s nothing worse than writing while stressed out/depressed/tired/all three combined. It’s been so hard to stay motivated when my body is not only tired but also running on junk food. No more!

Hopefully they don’t quit on their MA either.

I have to make a few more edits to my proposal tomorrow. It’s a little stressful but I just want to get it out of the way so that I can start researching for real. I can’t wait to start writing and actually talking about what I found instead of what other people have said. I really don’t enjoy writing literature reviews but it definitely does help me remember where I am going. It ended up feeling amazing to be able read it back and think, “Oh yeah! That’s why I’m here!”

Okay. Enough of that.

Things I did today instead of working:

  • Nothing. I may not have done much on my thesis but I had tutorials at uni and the other place.
  • …seriously, nothing.

Random lyrics about postgrad:

Spend some time improving what’s inside your head
Out, out, put it in storage, sell it on eBay, leave it behind
Out, out, what, are you angry? Good, so get angry
You may find the chip on your shoulder
Ooh, the room just got colder, hey
But with the chance you’ve been given
Why are you not driven as hell?

– Emmett

Day 10 – I Walk This Empty Street on the Boulevard of Broken Sleep

Can’t really write too much today, I have reached the want-to-cry-and/or-vomit level of exhaustion so I have to sleep as soon as possible. I will say this though, I managed to finish the final comments for a whole class today. I’m about a quarter of the way through the second class and I am hopeful that I will finish most, if not all, the comments tomorrow. I can’t wait to hand back these assignments because ABC Family is calling out to me.

Not long now, my love.

Not long now, my love.

I managed to access some of the readings from the television class I tutored last year so I printed off more readings for me to get through once I’ve gotten through my current workload. I can’t even begin to tell you how happy I am to see the names Lotz and Gripsrud. It’s like the mothership calling me home… or maybe it’s the flagship 😉

Lame TV studies jokes aside, I really am still excited to get this thesis started. Getting all my resources together feels kind of amazing. I’ll try to hold on to that feeling when I’m crying over badly written chapters in the coming months.

Things I did today instead of working:

  • Brought two apples to uni before ultimately abandoning them to eat pizza with CH. We also watched the finale of New Girl. Dinner break at its finest.
  • Admired a photo of Caleb Rivers because he apparently got a haircut. Technically this was research because he is coming back to Pretty Little Liars now that Ravenswood is cancelled.
  • Looked at cats on Tumblr
  • Ran home from the bus stop because everyone is scary at night
  • Sang ‘You’re Having My Baby’ wholeheartedly while getting ready for uni and thinking of Cory Monteith
  • Thought about Elle Woods and how I should watch Legally Blonde again to pump myself up. Ironically this movie inspired me to drop out of law school so I should probably watch with caution.

    Basically me right now

Random Lyrics From the Mostly Forgotten But Awesome Legally Blonde Musical

Seeing my name up on that list
That beats the first time that we kissed
You thought I was dumb
But I think that somebody’s judgment was poor

Seeing my name in black and white
It’s like making love with you all night
No wait, it feel so much better, hello, much better
It’s oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, much better
‘Cause I am so much better than before

– Elle Woods
