Twin Peaks

Day 49 – Keep Movin’, Don’t Stop Markin’

I spent the whole day just marking in my living room. I think at one point even my dog felt sorry for me.

Do you remember people? I miss people.


 I saw a little bit of a Gilmore Girls rerun though. So I have that going for me.

I am so very, very close to being done though. Just need to keep pushing on…



Things I did today instead of working:

  • I watched an episode of Twin Peaks when I woke up.
  • Watched the latest episode of After Hours. I love you Soren, thanks for the lolz.
  • …that’s it.

Random 90s rap lyrics:

Here I go, here I go, here I go again (again?)
Girls, what’s my weakness? (Men!)
Ok then, chillin’, chillin’, mindin’ my business (word)
Yo, Salt, I looked around, and I couldn’t believe this
I swear, I stared, my niece my witness
The brother had it goin’ on with somethin’ kinda…uh
Wicked, wicked (oooo) – had to kick it
I’m not shy so I asked for the digits



Day 48 – There Ain’t No Party Like A Marking Party

We got the last assignments back today! Woo!!

We spent a few hours eating pizza in silence while we pored over the essays. There’s so many of them!! Tomorrow, I hope to finish all of them because I am pretty freaking tired and I really, really, really want to read stuff for the thesis.


Also I want to start working out again, my body is getting all lethargic. Why is sitting in front of the computer and eating donuts not enough?! Can’t my calories be burned by excessive Facebooking and hysterical Tumblr-induced laughter?

On the bright side, my thesis proposal got officially approved today. Once I get these assignments sorted, there’s no hiding from my chapters anymore. I should probably watch Pretty Little Liars at some point considering I’m, you know, writing 40,000 words on it soon. Rewatching all the high-end serials that led to its creation is so much better though.

Is this why your story is going nowhere?

Things I did today instead of working:

  • Watched Twin Peaks. Hooray research!!
  • Listened to Sex with Emily. It’s been a long time, my saucy internet friend.
  • “Celebrated” NW’s birthday. Sorry you had to spend it reading essays 😦

    HB, NW!

    HB, NW!

  • Really reflected upon the sheer awesomeness of an empty 47 bus. It’s a more “scenic” route for those too lazy to walk down to the buses in town. It’s so relaxing… but I’m pretty sure we hit something at some point. Let’s not question it though, let’s just enjoy the ride.
  • Really enjoyed this meme that can work in all aspects of my academic career.

    Thanks, CH.

    Thanks, CH.

Random self love lyrics that makes me think of Cersei and Samantha from SATC:

It’s my life, I’m a do who I want to
Do what I want to, and I don’t want you
Alright, see my times gonna cost you
And all my love don’t cost a thing

You can’t break my heart
You can’t take my pride
Oh no, that love shit, I won’t do it

Iggy Azalea


It’s my party and I’ll be Cersei if I want to.

Day 43 – Loving Robb Stark is Red


I was too distraught to write anything last night because the only attractive male on Game of Thrones (that I didn’t want to slap) died.

He totally deserved it and was kind of boring but still… HOW COULD YOU LEAVE ME WITH JUST JON SNOW????

The only man on GoT that will cry harder than me if we got abducted together.

The only man on GoT who will cry harder than me if we got abducted together.

I still don’t really know what to say.  I think I’ll just watch Twin Peaks so that I can numb the pain with a little bit of creepiness.

Things I did today instead of working:

  • Brunch with CH and NW.

    Happy birthday, CH!

    Happy birthday, CH!

  • GoT until 2am. I’m not addicted. So don’t forget it. It’s just a silly phase, I’m going through.

Random “bangin'” lyrics:

Some people like to talk,
But I’m into doing
What I feel like doing
When I’m inspired, so
If we take a walk down
The beach tonight
I bet that we could light up the sky

The big big bang
The reason I’m alive
When all the stars collide
In this universe inside

– Rock Mafia

Day 37 – It Was Me, Jack Daniels, and my homie Jim Beam

Once again I was too tired to write anything for this blog yesterday. So this is another time-warp/cheat entry.

We had our last class for the trimester and we handed back the second essay. Oh, it felt so great to finally give those back. I better get all the sleep and thesis work done now before the final wave of assignments.

Things I did instead of working:

  • After the lecture, I felt like I really, really needed to watch Twin Peaks but I didn’t have my copy with me. So of course I went to the library just to get it. Totally worth it. Then again, that’s ‘research’, right?
  • BRUNCH!!!!! CH, NW, JB and I ate eggs because of course we did.
  • It was end-of-trimester celebrations so this video just about sums it up.

Random ‘just keep going’ lyrics:

So I put my hands up, they’re playin’ my song
The butterflies fly away
I’m noddin’ my head like Yeah!
Movin’ my hips like Yeah!

Got my hands up, they’re playin’ my song
And now I’m gonna be okay
Yeah! It’s a party in the USA!
Yeah! It’s a party in the USA!

– Miley Cyrus

Day 25 – Enough Is Enough Is Enough

I finally finished my proposal! Tomorrow, I’ll give it a final glance over and edit then I can give it to my supervisor to be checked before I send it off on Friday. Yay!!

Now I’m back to marking essays.

There's an end?

There’s an end?

I really have nothing more to say. I’ve had enough writing today.

Things I did today instead of working:

  • Brunch with SH. Brunch is basically the best thing ever

    I mean, right?

    I mean, right?

  • Started watching Gravity Falls. Hooray for more procrastination techniques.
  • Debated with myself about whether or not I should start Twin Peaks from the beginning. I can’t watch that show alone but I need it for my thesis. Aaargh. What to do, what to do?

    You said it, Dale.

    You said it, Dale.

Random “I should eat something” lyrics:

Well, I never saw it coming.
I should’ve started running
A long, long time ago.
And I never thought I’d doubt you,
I’m better off without you
More than you, more than you know.
