The first three nights we spent together, I couldn’t sleep. I wasn’t used to your breathing, your feet on my legs, your weight in the bed. In truth, I still sleep better when I’m alone. But now I allow that sleep isn’t always the most important thing."
—David Levithan, ‘The Lover’s Dictionary’

I’m studying a degree in teaching, not creative writing, so why the fuck am I having to write a children’s story?

I’ve made myself what can only be called a nest in my bed and I’m huddled up under three blankets with a hot water bottle drinking hot chocolate because my room is so cold. I’m still ill after a week so I’m feeling sorry for myself and all I want is someone to come and spoon me please.

"The best part of a relationship is getting to call the person, or lay down next to them, and tell them all the crazy things that happened to you all day long. In the end that’s what it’s about. It’s not about sex, it’s not about the money they give you, it’s not about how good looking they are, it’s about them listening to you talk for hours and hours and hours, about stupid shit that doesn’t matter."

I move into my uni house share on Tuesday and apparently I got lucky because my room was originally the lounge and it is huge! Party in Ruth’s new room!

I can’t wait to start decorating it and make it feel more like home.

I’ve gotten to the stage where even people being nice to me is making me cry/almost cry. I’m going to be a big sobbing mess on Tuesday.

Ian Dudfield Appreciation Post

After secretly being my favourite band member for the longest time, I am truly going to miss Ian in the band, especially on tour. I have very fond memories of him crawling under the merch table at The Bodega to rummage through holdalls looking for t-shirts and almost knocking himself out on the table, while signing the wrong end of my poster. He is the first band member I held a semi-coherent conversation with when he asked me how I’d gotten into the band and he was such a sweetheart about it. This is the same night Emma had to rescue me from Ian and his mad guitar skills when his guitar came within inches of my head (see fourth photo) because I was too mesmerised by him.

I’ve had the pleasure of meeting him on four separate occasions over the last year and a half and he has been beyond lovely every time, even when their van had been rammed on the way to Nottingham Dot to Dot and they were attempting to get the gear out that was stuck inside. We spoke to him at Dog Is Dead in May and he promised us that they’d be playing Nottingham this October and we’d see him again. I’m beyond gutted that this will no longer happen. I just wish Ian (and Jon, of course!) all the best and hope to see them making wonderful music sometime soon.

(Embarrassingly, most of all I’m going to miss Ian playing shows with no shoes or socks on! It was becoming a familiar game: has Ian got any shoes on today?)
