11th February 2013, for the smiles.

“With mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come.” 

William Shakespeare, Merchant of Venice

This post is just in acknowledgement of  all the people who have made me smile and laugh over the past year – my sisters who never fail to reduce me to acting about 7 years old; my family because, you know, they are funny sometimes (joking, you all make me smile); my friends who make me laugh whether it be through a one liner, something inappropriate  or purely through funny conversation and all my housemates, who are named the ‘Blenheim Zoo’ for hilarious reasons that I can’t even begin to explain. It’s the people in your life who give you something worth smiling and laughing about.

“I know that I’ll get through this, I know that I am strong.”

Cher, Believe

Ok, cringe moment of the month has arrived. In our student house, we have taken to revising together in our living room to the background noise of cheesy 80’s and 90’s hits. We got particularly passionate singing along with this song. I do love it though.

“The two enemies of human happiness are pain and boredom.”

Arthur Schopenhauer

I have been stuck in my room at uni for about three days thanks to the snow, uni shutting down and to revision. I felt myself going a little insane earlier (I guess that’s what 72 hours of linguistics does to you) so I went out for a long walk in the snow to try and retain some of my sanity.
