this lightened up Latin revision no end.

Anonymous asked: Hi, I am thinking of applying to Durham for history and I saw you're doing it there at the moment. Would you like ot wherever you did it or is Durham particularly good? People have told me it is but I don't know anyone who goes. X

Hey! That’s great! You should definitely come on an open day. Best decision I ever made. I probably would love History wherever I were to be, but there’s something special about here and the course is infallibly great. There’s one module I don’t like the lecturer for, but I still love the module because it’s organised so well, so it’s basically impossible for you not to find something that makes you happy. I guess you’re in lower sixth so you’ve got a while before you have to decide etc but if you want a History course that makes your insides squeal, give it a go. If you want to message me privately or whatevs, I’ll do my best to give you specifics! Good luck with everything!

Fountains Abbey busy being delicious yesterday.

Weather-wise it was a foul day, but I had the best day, regardless. Exquisite.

Can we just take a sec to appreciate that Terry Deary is coming to do a charity auction in our college bar next week!!!!!!!

The man himself.

I’m going to wear my ‘I <3 HISTORY’ t-shirt.

(I might not).

So we slept in the cathedral last night for charity, and was beautiful. There was an amazing moment around midnight where Saz and I were mucking with a balloon under the central tower, someone was playing Tom Petty on guitar, people were lying on their blankets around us, and just as we were saying how it felt like a scene from a film, confetti began to fall from the ceiling - there were people scattering it down on us from 60 or so feet above us. Absolutely gorgeous.

There’s a certain beauty in the fact that I was able to hand in an essay on the Venerable Bede at 4pm, then go and sleep under the same roof as him at 10pm.

I took this picture in November, as you’d figure from the orange of the leaves, but it’s so damn pretty. Durham, I love you so much.

We had a sleepover in our kitchen and it was really cute n nice.

As my friend pointed out, ‘couldn’t do that shit in a catered college’.

My current mood is happy.
This is partially because Peter Serafinowicz retweeted me.

However, similarly, because university is just so hnnnnng.

Happy happy happy happy.
