hello my lovelies~ hope you are all doing well.
I’ve been keeping busy with readings, papers, poetry, and natural history documentaries. Sir David came out with a ton of new materials. I loved his “Kingdom of Plants”, but was a little bit let down by “Africa”, the stories weren’t as cohesive as I’ve come to expect from his programs, and as one reviewer mentioned, the music selection is way too heavy handed.
I’m off to Montreal in a week and I have a bunch of things due before then, so I’ll have to sign off here. Everybody stay warm~~

should I or shouldn’t I? The show seems to be my cup of tea, historic, bromance-filled (eep! fanfics!), and English.
But with school looming so close, should I begin a possible new obsession?

feeling slightly renewed. i rewatched season 2 of the UK Office before i went to bed, which wasn’t the most uplifting thing to do. it still rattles me how good of an actor Gervais used to be – back when he didn’t depend on disabled “fellas” for jokes. anyway, the pilot for his new show “Derek” is reminiscent of his old style, endearing, true, and relatable – so hopefully that turns out to be compelling.
I have a crap load of stuff to handle at work right now, due to the fact that no one bothered looking after the receivables whilst I was away.
still, i must and shall dedicate at least 3 hours of my day to rereading Descartes, Hume and Plato tonight. I MUST I MUST I MUST!
My Dad formatted his PC, which I’d just redone for him a couple of days ago. He accidentally deleted his internet and sould drivers – so yup, that’s on my to-do list tonight as well.
On a brighter note, I got my friend COMPLETELY OBSESSED with Sherlock (the BBC adaptation) and now she’s surviving by actually reading the original ACD stories!! I’m so proud!

listening to Cabin Pressure is like being treated to voice-porn. BC, Roger Allam AND Anthony Stewart Head?
PS. I’ve replayed the J-burg episode at least 10 times. This is encouraged by the fact that I’ve had an upset stomach for the past week. UGHHHH what’s wrong with me????

I blame my tendency to be overly invested (read: obsessed) on my curiosity. Once I beceome attached to something, I absolutely have to know everything there is to know about it. I work efficiently too, under the overarching umbrella of “Acclaimed BBC Dramas” I have Sherlock, Jane Eyre, and Downton Abbey.
The first is far more enthralling than the others (part of the magic is because of how naturally Holmes is updated). I remember halfway through watching A Study In Pink and exclaiming “this is bloody brilliant!” Honestly, this is before I became a Cumberbatch devotee!
I read frantically, training my eyes on all of the original ACD canon and before the week is out, I can talk pretty knowledgably about Holmes.
