I’m switching again, third time’s a charm; most definitely - today I heard I’m got in to training ground of Olivier himself, the immense realm of the Central School of Speech and Drama.
It’s killing me that I can’t use gif to show how I’ve been jumping off the walls for hours. Absolutely buzzing.
Now all I’ve got to do is de-homeless myself and life will be amazing. I’ll keep you posted whenever I’ve access to wifi…
I love each and every one of you as I literally cannot imagine how else I’d have found the confidence to be doing this. You are absolutely incredible.

The lovely Tom is still my lovely Tom; the homeless stuff pertains to the process of cutting ties with my parents.

I fell off the grid as I’m uni-less, homeless, and wifi-less (easily the worst of the three). On the bright side, I just had to escort next door’s dog out of the rehearsal room.
Dunno what to tell you other than I’ve been slogging through stress and it looks like it’ll be awhile before a permanent situation presents itself, allowing me ability for interneting. So consider me a continuing tumblr exile for a bit longer.
As horrible as I’m sure this seems it’s mainly born of positive things, so nobody worry about me - and I can’t apologise enough if you already have been.
If you haven’t heard about this yet, last night the BBC aired a powerful documentary called Blurred Lines that explored casual misogyny online and rape culture.
I urge EVERYONE to watch it and spread it like fire because it gives real insight into the topic and has inspired both men and women to go to Twitter and had #blurredlines trending for 12 hours on Twitter after it aired.
You can watch it on BBC iPlayer here (x)
(I genuinely don’t know if those outside the UK can view, so please let me know!)
It includes video footage from the Steubenville cases, it takes a look at the treatment of women in GTA, lads mags and rape jokes, the unapologetic nature of those who perpetrate rape culture etc.
One of the more interesting points of the documentary are the men who oppose rape culture and those that don’t and the societal differences between them.
After you view it please share your views, both on Tumblr and any other social media platforms you have. It’d be great if this abuse against women documentary were the first searches people came across when they search for Blurred lines.

For those outside the UK: there’s a nice browser extension called Hola with which you can watch this.
I take for granted my ability to be a fangirl and a lesbian in the open, my freedom of speech. To be vocal about my joys, my erotic attachments. Meanwhile our fellow fans are being persecuted for what many of us experience as simple guilty pleasures. This is a vital issue and it deserves our collective attention.

See that? That’s official confirmation that the Almeida (who got 8 Olivier awards a few weeks ago) are taking a show to Lattitude Music Festival.
I’m the assistant director, dramaturge and stage manager.

goindanswingin said: I'm sure I remember you recommending some music that you used for your mind palace about a year ago, when I first found your post (thankyou! I have a fully functioning mind palace now!) but I can't find it for the life of me! I've got my GCSEs in two weeks and I'm starting to stress, so do you have any music suggestions I could use to calm myself down when I'm visiting my mind palace? Thanks again for your help:)
Cold War Kids, Field Music, Edmund (the slower songs - After Dark, Leave This City, Running Jump, Hard to Believe), Fyfe Dangerfield, Kyle Andrews, Lianne La Havas, London Grammar, Nina Simone, Patrick Wolf, Vega 4.
If you’d prefer something without lyrics most instrumentals work; my favourties are Nils Frahm and Olafur Arnalds. Sylvain Chauveau’s ace too.
Hope that helped. Best of luck with your exams! Don’t drive yourself too crazy over them; they’re a stepping stone, not the end of the world. :)
