A tale of knitting, food, interstitial cystitis and general angst, all homemade in the UK.





Forget the Myers-Briggs fucking personality assessment. I am dead tired of hearing if someone is an INFP or an ESLQ or whatever. I want to know if someone is melancholic or choleric. Bring back the four humors. I wanna see “Kaley, 16, phlegmatic” when I go to someone’s blog. Who is with me. Lets make this happen

here's a test i found. go wild, y'all. (im choleric.)

Melancholic. Little surprise here.

Sanguine here!

Phlegmatic: Phlegmatics tend to be content with themselves and are kind. They are accepting and affectionate. They may be receptive and shy and often prefer stability to uncertainty and change. They are consistent, relaxed, calm, rational, curious, and observant, qualities that make them good administrators. They can also be passive-aggressive.

This is actually very accurate. Don’t you see change what we’re doing tomorrow or I will silently fume with anger for hours until you ask what’s wrong and then I won’t say.

i love the term “partners”
are we dating?
are we robbing a bank?
do we run a legal firm?
are we the dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious felonies and are members of an elite squad known as the special victims unit?
who knows.

  • 14 years old: I'm young but I know what I want. This isn't that hard, I'm all grown up already and have everything figured out.
  • 17 years old: Well, this is a little harder than I thought. School is almost ending. What am I going to do with my life?
  • 21 years old: What the fuck is going on? Where are my socks?

  • Me: *Scrolls past*


Does anyone else lie in bed at 2:30am filled with the crippling fear that they’re never going to accomplish anything in life and fail miserably or is that just me

this has too many notes

August 31st 12: Caligula born

On this day in 12 AD, the future Roman Emperor Caligula was born in Italy. Born Gaius Julius Caesar Germanicus, he is today known by his nickname Caligula (‘Little Boot’) which Roman soldiers on the German frontier called him when he was a young boy because of hisfootwear. As great-grandson of the first Emperor Augustus the young Caligula was born with imperial blood. After his parents were killed by imperial forces he was adopted by his great uncle Emperor Tiberius and eventually became the third emperor upon Tiberius’s death in 37 AD. With the support of the army he quickly moved to eradicate any challenges to his reign, having Tiberius’s grandson and rival heir executed. As emperor, Caligula lavished Rome with grand games and building projects but soon became despised for his increasing megalomania and apparent insanity that seems to have stemmed from an illness early in his reign. He supposedly tried to humiliate the Senate by making his favourite horse Incitatus a senator. Caligula also reversed previous imperial trend by actively encouraging worship of himself as a god. For example he frequently dressed up as the Roman gods at public games and decreed statues of him should be built in temples. His reign was also brutal in its vicious treason trials and frequent executions of dissenters; he even made it a capital offence to mention a goat in the presence of the very hairy Caligula. Emperor Caligula also had imperial aspirations, and undertook military campaigns in Germany and planned one to Britain. In 41 AD, after a four year reign, the increasingly unpopular Caligula was assassinated aged 29 by his own bodyguards. He was succeeded by his uncle Claudius, who proved a much more even tempered and moderate leader.

"I am nursing a viper for the Roman people"

He looks like Joffrey!!

Sexual health clinics…

Anyone know if you have to go to one in your area or if you can go to any clinic you like? I was really comfortable in the one I used to go to in southwark but now I live in tower hamlets and I’m not so keen on the one near me. Just got invited for my first cervical screen and with the IC and all would rather have people I like do that to me!

Seriously, really proud of the Standard today. View high resolution

Seriously, really proud of the Standard today.

Angry about what happened, pleased that it is recognised as enough of a sorry to put on the front page of the Evening Standard (for all you non-Londoners, this is a free paper that’s handed out at loads of train stations and places over London every day).

This is so not ok. It’s happened to me countless times. Once a guy put his hands in my knickers when I was on a night out. We shouldn’t have to fear pushing these gross men away from us. Unwelcome groping is assault! The quicker people can learn this the better. Scum.


do you ever get your period and just think about your recent behavior like wow that explains a lot
