  1. It’s my birthday and I need to force myself to do some fun things so I don’t mope about doing nothing the rest of the week
  2. Back to working on site, starting to feel way less overwhelmed now that I’m actually there and can physically see the space again (I work in a museum). my BBC audio piece will hopefully be broadcast at some point, it’s all done now. and I wrote the introduction to an illustrated mythology book! How neat is that? also it’s my birthday tomorrow
  3. I’m absolutely vibing with Viagra Boys lately every single song of theirs just works for me. Love em
  4. Had a nasty thought earlier. Caught sight of self in reflection with my hair bandana and brain shouted “PIG IN A BOW!!” and I had to stop and think. And challenge myself. “That wasn’t very nice...do I actually think that?” and the answer is of course NO. But it took a small moment of pause to reflect, understand that I’m not my intrusive thoughts and to challenge and confirm to myself that I didn’t mean it. Just a comment to say challenge yourself on those intrusive nasty thoughts, because they’re not you, be nice to yourself xx
  5. So it’s official - I am a Master of Arts in Celtic Studies hehe! And overall I got a Merit which I’m very pleased with!! The last few years weren’t a waste after all! I’m so much more competent than I ever give myself any credit for. I always think of myself as this lazy useless slug of a person but my goodness I have done a ridiculous amount of things this year and to a high standard!! Really appreciating that now.
  6. I PASSED MY MASTERS !! My dissertation is a merit and possibly even a distinction!!! I’m SO relieved
  7. People, more and more, are just incapable of occupying the middle ground and have to go to an extreme. I’m sorry people are accusing you of that, small businesses have been so screwed during all this. So rooting for you and wishing you the best mate
  8. I’m hoping to make it to a 2023 one because both of these are out for me really. Will absolutely be Chicago though.
  9. Where do people listen to their podcasts?
  10. Oh wow - thanks for sharing! I’m glad I could briefly accompany you on such a journey I wish I could say my podcast has changed much or gotten a lot better but it’s still much the same as it ever was, hehe. One day I’ll get better equipment but I plan on keeping this show going for awhile!
  11. One of the first podcasts I started listening to actually but o haven’t listened to it in years! Have to remedy that! Well I am incredibly honoured!
  12. I’m a history/folklore podcasters so i often tend to listen to similar ish ones so The Myth Legend & Lore Podcast House of Legends Podcast Fabulous Folklore with Icy Celtic Myth Podshow / Celtic Tomes from Gary and Ruth but my favourites to listen to to cheer me up are My Dad Wrote a Porno and Bad Romance Podcast - I listen to them both on Spotify.
  13. HAvent stopped listening to Kate Bush in weeks. First Kick Inside playing on repeat in my care - then listening to a lot of Hounds of Love and now I’m in love with The Dreaming and tipping my toe into obsessively replaying The Sensual World as well...we shall see
  14. I'm furious about this. This is gendered violence from men against women, SPECIFICALLY lesbian women who are not under their sexual control. They still find ways to try to sexualise women and slot them into fetishes or fantasies and when we refuse we're beaten up. It's so disgusting.
  15. I think my marking system for my MA is 50 = pass, 60 = merit and 70 = distinction
  16. and Then on the other hand this lovely new girl in work just revealed that she asked one of the blokes in work if there was anything between us (Absolutely NOT - I REALLY like him but DONT fancy him...) and he said no that he thinks I’m a lesbian and she said “no I’m Pan and I’m pretty sure Siân is bisexual” and he was like “no shes a lesbian” which tbh him believing either works for me because I like him and sometimes worry I come across as flirting by just being really chatty and friendly so if he thinks I’m a lesbian then that’s not so bad I mean I’ve never said I am so I’m not lying. But I was very happy and pleased that the girl recognised me as bi!!! I know it’s not for everyone but I’m relatively open about it - I don’t lie if someone asks me and sometimes I’ll mention women I’m attracted to and it’s nice when I get recognised by other lgbtq+/queer people
  17. It's more her being a bit cold towards me which makes encounters in the museum (where I am desperately always trying to make a good impression and advance) that bothers me more than her actual words. I don't much care about her other than drunk initial hurt. It's that this has to happen in a professional place for me. Oh well, she's childish - and I won't be in that particular museum forever. I'm hoping to move to a city when I pass my driving test and volunteer in a larger museum to make better contacts and gain more experience but this type of thing does make me nervous if it's going to happen in other professional places.
  18. A few years older than me - late 20s. I knew she seemed off with me and I went for drinks with a few of my museum friends and they said she’d said that and I just was not surprised at all. Lots of lesbian and bisexual women in this museum as well that are really lovely to me, in fact I think she’s really friendly to another bi woman. But always seemed kinda cold with me even though we’ve had a couple of nice conversations on occasion. Such a weird reason not to like me but not the first time I’ve encountered that sentiment
  19. OMG just found out one of the lesbians in the museumhates me (btw am drunk) and I always knew she disn like me but I couldn’t figure out why abd she hates me because apparently I’m a TOKEN GAY who ITS CUTE SHE TRIES TO FIT IN (Ive barely spoken to her????) and that I only recently came out as bisexual (really????? Bee ‘out! Since I was 19 biiitch( and so it’s a fad and I’m annoying wtf im hurt but I’m also like wtf !!!!!!!! I never speak to her I don’t overly bring up my sexuality’s it’s just who I am.....wtf
  20. I didn’t mean to show sunny blind optimism, I criticise the UK all the time. Just saying from my perspective of having lived in a couple rural areas of the UK. And I’ve lived with and been around a lot of old people too.
  21. i can only talk to South Wales valleys and Cornwall and can honestly say most people don’t really care at all what you are. I see lesbian couples relatively often. In both places. I really, really think that rural places and working class people get a very bad rap when it comes to percieved bigotry - especially in the UK. Yes - it exists and yes we had a referendum that voted to leave the EU because of an awful campaign that predominantly preyed on xenophobia but I have to say that I don’t think rural British people, for the most part are all that hostile towards lgbt people at all. Not now anyway. I read an excellent book Pride that was a companion book to the film that came out a few years back - brilliant film too, about Lesbian and Gay Activists teaming up with South Welsh Miners during the mining strike and building up a lasting friendship. There was this idea, a lot of the time from middle class politicians, that working class people like miners would be the most bigoted, the most violent and hateful and maybe in parts of England and Scotland that was true - but the overriding attitude by the miners was the men not caring about their personal lives and being thankful for help in the fight against thatcher and a lot of the women becoming close friends with the gay and lesbian activists, this was mid 80s btw near the AIDS scare when homophobia in the country was really at its worst because of thatcher. I think some of the children, after that visit later came out as gay from that and neighbouring valleys and were accepted. I see quite a fair amount of lesbian couples, in particular, in Wales. Don’t forget uk isn’t just England. But yeah I don’t think things are rosy here, and there definitely must be prejudice that I don’t see, certainly my young trans friends speak of it but actually they all live in cities. I don’t think rural areas, in that regard, are all that unsafe at all. I don’t know what rural America is like, only what films and tv tell me tbh - but traditionally in places like wales and to a lesser extent cornwall with big mining (working class) communities the politics of the people, personal politics, have always been very left wing bordering on socialist opposed to right wing in a lot of cases. Of course that was many decades ago now and things have changed politically - the Tories are still awful - but now they other groups of people to attack. I haven’t noticed an overwhelming anti-lgbt attitude here. Individual people but for the most part people aren’t that bothered in the two areas of the UK I’ve spent a significant amount of time in. But from the sounds of it - Ireland might suit you better to live Robin, nothing stops you visiting UK when/if you live there i just wanted to say that rural areas here aren’t really violent or unsafe for the most part
  22. Most people really don’t care about others personal business lol British are still quite reserved
