This is all Snipps' fault.

Wow. I haven't updated since March. I can barely even remember March! In all honesty, I probably wouldn't be updating now if Snipps' Tumblr post inspired by my dessert post hadn't inspired me to start writing again. Yeah, there was a lot of inspiration running around.

Some things have changed since the last time I posted, and, at the same time, not much has changed at all. I'm still watching Merlin, enjoying my metaphorical cupcake, and spending much too much time in the library looking at the folklore books (which they moved, by the way, to the dungeon. Because we couldn't just keep them where they were before. Oh no. The music majors had to have their fucking music on the middle level so now I have to sit in the fucking dungeon if I want to do research because those selfish pricks couldn't just be happy they even had a fucking section. Okay. I'm good now. As a side note, my cupcake is a music major. Go figure.).

Anyway, this summer was a long one. I started a Sir Leon appreciation Tumblr which I gave up after about 3 weeks because life got in the way. For those of you who don't know, which is pretty much everyone, my Grandmother was very ill this summer and my Mother and I spent most of our time dealing with that. She's allright now so no need to retroactively panic - in fact the doctors say she'll be 100% better by Christmas - but it was a very time consuming and stressful thing that took up most of my time and energy.

Also, and I know this is totally unrelated and not even remotely in the vein of what I was just talking about, but I seriously hate it when people eat in the library. A drink is fine, no need to dehydrate yourself, but do you seriously need a tuna sandwich right now? Seriously?! Right now?!? And do you need to chew like a cow? I don't need to hear you chew from across the room! It's gross! Your tuna is gross! I hope you choke! I've had a lot of sugar today.

Getting back to my life story though, this summer my time was divided between my Grandmother and my super-amazing cupcake, which is good, because I needed some normalcy in my life. Yeah, we had our ups and downs (what baked good hasn't had it's stale days?) but the important thing is that you find a way to work around funky colored frosting and crumby cake batter and you stick to it. I learned a lot this summer about myself and the kind of person I am in a crisis. There are things I wish I was better at, but overall, I think I'm not so bad to have around. It really, overall, comes down to this: Someone has to hold it together, to be the end of the line. If it's somebody else, try not to overwhelm them. If it's you, hold on tight and try to find a way to keep it together, because people are counting on you.

And now to end this post, I will add a picture of Sir Leon. The incredibly adorable knight of the round table played by Rupert Young, who I all too briefly dedicated a tumblr too. This one's for you, Leon.
