Weak in the Knees by Serena Ryder

Daisy by Marc Jacobs

05. What’s your occupation? What do you do there?
Student at Queen’s. I learn things and write essays. 

06. What do you drink the most?

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

08. What will you be doing after finishing this?
I will read some Psalms from the Hebrew Scriptures and maybe some Hamlet. That’s what you do when you study English and Religion.

09. What did you want to be when you grew up?
I haven’t grown up yet and I still don’t know what I want to be. Soo there ya go.

10. Your favorite romantic movie?
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?

My twentieth year. 

Oh. My. Goodness. 

It seems wrong. It seems impossible.

Twenty is a scary age. You’re just legal, but not quite entirely legal. You think of twenty and you think of success and future and preparedness. 

Let me tell you, I am not prepared. I have no clue what I want to do or who I want to be in life. I don’t have a five-year or ten-year plan – I don’t even know what I’m doing tomorrow (other than an 8:30 class, buying text books, going to the gym and reading my life away). 

Thank god this is Frost week. A week of raging on campus. New syllabi mean no work and constant partying. Yay for unproductivity!

Okay so, starting today, whenever I  update my blog I’m going to have a song of the day, and I’ll let you know what I’m currently reading whether it’s for school or for pleasure. 

So, without further ado,

Today’s song is Human by the Killers. I know that it’s kinda late, but I only got the album today and I’m loving it. 

I’m currently reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. It’s really fascinating so far and a great story. I find it really hard to put down. 

I’m off!
