If today was productive, or unproductive. You tell me:

Productive: I figured out what I’m going to write by Buddhism paper on…

Unproductive: But I haven’t done any school work…at all.

Productive: but I did go get a book to help me write said essay (The Complete Poems of Walt Whitman).

Unproductive: but after buying said book I spent 1.5 hours downtown shopping and got three things off my wish list from a previous blog post (blue skirt, AA Bodysuit, belt) and spent too much moneeez. 

Productive: responded to all outstanding social networking messages, etc.

Unproductive: see above.

You see my dilemma? 

Despite that, however, I will spend sometime updating this lovely blog here by posting a *puts on announcer voice* TEA OF THE DAY-day-day (see the echo effect there? snazzy, right?). 

Today’s tea is a Starbucks Grande Unsweetened Non-Fat Black Tea Latte. It’s my new regular order from Starbs. I get it unsweetened because I’m not a huge fan of their classic syrup (it’s just…sweet) and I like my tea strong rather than sweet and the tea latte is better than just a tea because it’s, well, delicious and comforting. It’s a pretty basic tea, but I just say KISS (keep it simple, silly).

Speaking of cheesy phrases, the English Department just sent out their clothing order forms and they decided on the WORST slogan for the year clothing. The geniuses decided on “English Majors: You Do the Math”. 

What? I get it, but really? That’s the best they could come up with? “You do the Math”? I mean haha, we’re english majors so we hate numbers, but it’s such a terrible clothing slogan. If I were on the committee I would have gone with something like, “English Majors: We Kiss by the Book” to allude to the classic line from Romeo and Juliet. Oh, Petrarchian conceits and Juliet’s rejection of them *sigh*. Needless to say, I’m not wasting 40 dollars on an American Apparel zip-up hoody this year. Terrible. 

Maybe I’ll go be productive now…

Maybe.

Ciao Bella on Lamb’s Conduit Street in London, England. It holds great memories and has great food. What more could you ask for?

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

11. What’s the least favorite thing about yourself?
To steal from a recent Postsecret postcard, “I am not ambitious enough for my own dreams.”

13. What are your ideal qualities in a novel?
I shouldn’t want to put it down and I need, need, need to be able to think about it afterwards, also I need a chuckle and maybe a good cry. The Book Thief (my most recent read) did all of that for me, as did my favourites such as Harry Potter and all of John Green’s books. 

14. What time do you usually go to bed?
I aim for between 11 and midnight. I’m proud to say that i haven’t had to pull any all nighters this year.

15. What’s the meaning behind your LJ username/name/nicknames you go by?
Well, this one (samstarr) was a nickname given to me by my friend vicky several years ago. It started as Samster and turned into SamStar which turned into stamstarr for the purpose of avoiding awkward meaningless numbers in my username. On Youtube and Twitter and almost everywhere else, however, I go by hplondonlove which basically means that I love Harry Potter and London. Riveting story, wasn’t it?
