I'd Just Really Like to Time Travel and Move to England

Ever since I was little, in the back of my mind I have always wanted to go to boarding school (or possibly an all-girls private school). I'm a bit of a Romantic & I can't help it... I want to be British. Preferably in a different time. I want to travel back in time & be Jane Eyre. Or maybe Mary Crowley... It does not even matter that both of those women are fictional.
If I were the Doctor's companion (because God knows I can't go a whole post without being a SciFi nerd), I would just tell him to drop me off somewhere between the 1700s & the 1980s. & just leave me there. My life would be awesome.
I would get to wear the best clothes, find a husband like Mr. Darcy, and fight for women's intellectual/ voting rights. Right now, I kind of just want the clothes. A lot. & because I have a right to be shallow at times, I'm going to show you some of the awesome clothes throughout British history.
 I mean who doesn't want to wear this corset.

Or this dress.

Or this one.

Also, pocket-watch necklaces are beautiful.

(We all knew that I would bring that back into the blog. I can't deny the power of my obsessions.)

I really like historic fashion. Probably more than is reasonable...
P.S. I'll try to post something intelligent later. Maybe.

I Can't Even Begin to Give Excuses for My Laziness

I suck.
 In general, but also at blogging. So, here's a rundown of what life is like being me.
I'm sitting here trying to do work, because that's what I'm supposed to be doing, but I have suddenly decided to blog instead. I am blogging about nothing, because I'm bored. Because, I'm desperately trying to keep my mind off the work that is piling up around me. &, ultimately, because I'm trying to stop myself from obsessing over and/or buying a pocket watch necklace. I'm trying really hard not to get twitchy about the grammar slaughter I just committed with those last few sentences.
Yes. This is my life.
I worry about school and steampunk-type fashion. I'm exceptionally random. I am constantly freaked out about the unknown. I really love twitter, because it means I know what's going on... I, also, like that I can be a stalker in a non-creepy capacity. I was genuinely on the verge of tears when my dad told me about Dropbox last night.
I'm not very interesting. But just narcissistic enough to occasionally blog, vlog and tweet.
I'm going to make a great librarian someday.
p.s. I would promise to blog more, but we all know that would be a terrible lie.
