Hello lovelies, I know I’ve been AWOL for the past little while. Between school work, my teaching assistant job, packing up to move house, having two recent burlesque performances, and attempting to maintain somewhat of a social life, I’ve way too busy. A source of supreme irony is that I am going to be writing a paper for one of classes about Tumblr. I’m thinking it may...
Lyra listened enthralled to tales of the fen dwellers, of the great ghost dog...– Philip Pullman, Chapter 7 of The Golden Compass I’ve always loved this one part about Lyra being a fire person. I definitely think of myself this way, i.e. marsh fire in my blood / witch oil in my soul.
I’ve been making a list of the things they don’t teach you at school. They don’t...– Neil Gaiman (submitted by Bibliophobic)
Happy Equinox, lovelies!
Blessed Ostara, my gorgeous and lovely witchy followers! I’m just on my way out the door to go celebrate with some of my favourite Pagans, and wanted to send good vibes to all of you.

It’s also lovely to buy local supplies when possible, thus helping to reduce your carbon footprint, and also supporting local businesses. That being said, sometimes when you’re looking for specific magic supplies or have a lot of on your plate, the above options may not always be...
In Defense of Wasting Time | Tiny Buddha →
Too often, I am far too acutely aware of time. Am I using it wisely? Am I being efficient? Getting adequate work done? Structuring my day so that I can fit in work, exercise, writing, chores, and maybe even the not-so-occasional episode of Dexter. There is certainly something to be said for routine. I love feeling that at the end of the day, I have done things for myself, as well as...

Odi et amo. Quare id faciam, fortasse requiris. nescio, sed fieri sentio et...– Catullus 85 So simple, and beautiful, one of my favourite poems. There are many differing translations, some of my favourites are below. Translations: I hate and I love. Wherefore I do this, perhaps you ask. I do not know, but I feel it being done and I am tormented. (source) I...
