what's up fellow kids

taarya: Hey! I read here you go to sussex. I'm going to spend a semester there next September as an erasmus student! A quick question: would it be better/cheaper for me to have a room on campus? And do you think I'm likely to get it, if I'm only there for 6 months? ta x

I’ll publish this in case it’s useful for anyone else. Congrats, first of all :D

It depends which room you go for. The prices range from £80-130 a week (I believe they’re on the sussex housing site) and the top end of the scale has en-suites and are just generally a lot nicer imo. I live off campus now and it’s 352 a month not inc. bills, and bills generally push it up to btwn 380-90 a month. Which is still sort of lower-range campus price. And also bear in mind that the cheapest of the cheap housing is kind of nasty. My rent obviously doesn’t factor in travel costs though, but buses are quite cheap. Dunno how much they are though, but superhermit will know :D

Personally I MUCH prefer living off campus even without an en-suite, living on campus was not good for me at all and I didn’t realise how much I’d hated it until I moved into shared housing. It’s just very isolating and noisy and stressful and yeah. If you like the sort of party sleepover sharing is caring thing go for it tho. I know it works for a lot of people - I just never felt fully comfortable living on campus.

tl;dr it basically depends on what you want, but there are good/bad points to both options. I don’t know how likely you aer to get a place - I obviously only had to go through it from the first year student perspective :) 

good luck!

Anonymous: What did Olivia's last message to you say?

it’s tagged on my blog somewhere. it wasn’t related to anything involving her mental health though and i find it a bit irritating you think it’s appropriate to ask this - it’s a dead girl’s final message and you are all ‘omg what did it say’ and don’t you t hink that’s a bit shitty?

big-wee-hag: hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

not even they can stop me now 
when panic grips your body and your heart is a hummingbird
don’t let them get to you
you could never know what it’s like
when you go I think  I’m gonna sew my name into all of your clothes

i know you can’t stand my wandering hands
if you’ll be my star i’ll be your sky
lippy kids on the corner again
much as you blame yourself, you can’t be blamed for the way that you feel
i’ve had enough of danger and people on the streets

tar-miriel: heeeeey

on my way up north up on the ventura
as the moon kindles the night
took a big trip with your old band
alabama arkansas, i do love my ma and pa
you’ll never see the courage i know

(there is a recurring theme of ~going home~ or ~wandering~ in my music i see)

ifellowedsleep: hiiiiii : *

if i die young bury me in satin
yellow diamonds in the light and we’re standing side by side
let’s get out of this town baby we’re on fire
there is freedom within, there is freedom without
when i decided to live the rest of my life from a list of towns
