A Not So Blue Monday

Monday, 18 December 2017


Hello pals! I can't believe it's only a week until Christmas, my cheeks are glittery and work is busier than ever, but I think it's the most fun I've had working. I've spent the week working incredibly long hours with a smile pinned to my face, dancing around to Wizzard -who knew entertaining children was such hard work- But I know it's all worth it and I've still managed to have a social life, going to bed at 2am and waking up again at 7, at least I have the glitter to cover up my eye bags! Here are the things that have made me particularly happy this week:

Haley Blais & Covers ______________________________________________________________

Haley is one of my favourite musical artists and I get a lot of inspiration from her lyrics and choice of covers and this Dean Martin cover just blew me away. I got into bed after a hard day at work and clicked on it for a bit of background music. Next thing you know I'm turning it up full volume and getting teary at the perfect vocals and chorus build up. I love Dean Martin songs and hearing a  cover of  one of my favourites; turning that drunken vocal slur into something angelic was just amazing and I have gone on to click on this video multiple times a day. 

Getting Published _________________________________________________________________

That's right, ya girl got her dissertation published in an actual psychology journal and I've never been so proud of myself. The hours of sore fingers and brains and tea and tears were all worth it! People can actually reference me when writing their own dissertations, that's crazy!

Love, Lies & Records ______________________________________________________________

It's a program designed for middle aged women but I've become hooked! My mum and I have been watching it on  BBC and it's just a simple program about a registrar and her dramatic life surrounding her job, but so much happens, so much un-necessary drama and it's such a good program to switch off to at the end of a long day. I also now am wondering if I would make a good registrar; I've come to the conclusion that I am too emotionally unstable for that shit. 

Labyrinth________________________________________________________________________

I had never seen the puppet-cult-classic that is Labyrinth, so my friends decided to change that. We watched it together the other night and apart from the effects being laughable and wanting to strangle the main character because she is so annoying; I would say I enjoyed it. It gave me huge Never Ending Story vibes and I'm not complaining about that. Bowie makes it though, and that soundtrack oh my I haven't been able to get Magic Dance out of my head since! 

How was your Monday?
