Peculiar Mixture

In a way, I started out like this old lady, and now I feel like my age is catching up with me. And I’m excited by all these new things for me to do. I feel like I have so much more to accomplish as an actress. I’d love to try theater and that’s a whole other thing. But when I finish my degree, I will have a lot more time to pursue other passions, and I want to figure out what those will be. I love having something completely unrelated to the film industry. I want to find something that will let me use my brain in another way. I like connecting people who aren’t part of that world too.

The hardest period in life is one’s twenties. It’s a shame because you’re your most gorgeous, and you’re physically in peak condition. But it’s actually when you’re most insecure and full of self-doubt. When you don’t know what’s going to happen, it’s frightening.

Helen Mirren, quoted in Esquire’s “What I’ve Learned” (via rosegoldthoughts)

There’s so much more to life than finding someone who will want you, or being sad over someone who doesn’t. There’s a lot of wonderful time to be spent discovering yourself without hoping someone will fall in love with you along the way, and it doesn’t need to be painful or empty. You need to fill yourself up with love. Not anyone else. Become a whole being on your own. Go on adventures, fall asleep in the woods with friends, wander around the city at night, sit in a coffee shop on your own, write on bathroom stalls, leave notes in library books, dress up for yourself, give to others, smile a lot. Do all things with love, but don’t romanticize life like you can’t survive without it. Live for yourself and be happy on your own. It isn’t any less beautiful, I promise.

This guy in my art class forgot his paint brush so he just cut off a chunk of his hair and taped it to a pencil.

I feel like he has more commitment to fine art than I do.

Here it is, as promised. My Happy New Year 2014 Giveaway. Not a huge giveaway by some standards, but a little something to show my appreciation for my followers who put up with my Khan spams, Ben perving and general randomness. You are all wonderful and I am grateful to you all for making tumblr a fun place to be and enjoying this journey with me!

OK, here’s what we’ve got:

  • Sherlock Cluedo
  • 2 Star Trek Into Darkness 2014 Calendars
  • A wall clock with pictures of Benedict on the face. You can easily change these to your choice of pics. Full instructions enclosed! I’ll include a few extras as shown to get you started. Clock battery  (AA) not included due to postage restrictions on batteries.
  • 2 copies of (British) GQ (Ben on cover!)
  • 1 Copy of Time Magazine (Ben on cover!)
  • 1 copy of The Lady Magazine (Guess who on cover!)
  • 1 Star Trek Khan #1 Comic (Retailer incentive cover)
  • 1 Star Trek Khan #2 Comic (Regular cover with white overlay, means you get Paul Shipper’s lovely artwork unimpeded by text!
  • 1 copy of TV and Satellite Weekly with Sherlock on the cover and a feature inside.
  • 1 copy of The Big Issue (yep, Ben on cover)
  • 1 A5 Spiral bound note book with London Underground map cover

And here is how the prize packages will break down:

  1. First prize will get Sherlock Cluedo, TV and Satellite Weekly Mag, plus one other magazine of your choice.
  2. Second prize will get a Star Trek calendar, both Khan comics, plus one magazine of your choice from what’s left.
  3. Third prize will get the wall clock, plus a magazine of your choice from what’s left.
  4. Fourth prize will get a Star Trek calendar,plus a magazine of your choice from what’s left.
  5. Fifth prize will get the London Underground map notebook and the remaining magazine after the others have chosen.

Now here is the boring bit…

  • You must be following me, because this is a “thank you” designed specifically for my followers. I will be checking.
  • No giveaway blogs.
  • Only reblogs will count. You can like the post for your own information, but it won’t get you an entry unless you reblog it too. Only 1 reblog is necessary to enter you in the drawing. You may reblog this as many times as you like, but it won’t increase your chances of winning. And please don’t spam your followers until they get sick of you.
  • I reserve the right to make any changes to these rules if I’ve  forgotten anything. I will reblog if I make changes.
  • Your ask box must be open and you must be willing to provide me with your name and address if you win, so that I can send your prizes to you.
  • I will make reasonable attempts to contact winners within 48 hours, but if I don’t hear back from you in that time, your prize may be allocated to someone else.
  • I will ship anywhere in the world, but you may be liable for your own country’s import taxes.
  • Winners will be picked at random, either by a random number generator, or by pulling names out of a hat/bag/box. (My eldest daughter will do this. She has no idea who any of you are so your urls mean nothing to her.)
  • Winners may choose a lower prize than the one allocated but not a higher one.
  • The giveaway is underway immediately this post goes live. It will run until 31st January 2014
  • Prizes will be shipped out in early February 2014. (I appreciate that means a month of the calendar will be gone already (and it’s Khan for January!) but you can always chop a page off and use him for another month… or all year if you like!

So there you go. I may add more things as this goes along. And tomorrow I will replace the photo of the wall clock with one that doesn’t have a reflection in it.

01.01.14: Edit - new pic of clock (with slightly less reflection) added.

09.01.14 Edit: If this reaches 1000 notes/reblogs I might add another prize. Maybe a copy of The Big Issue and something else.

16.01.14 Edit - yay. reached 1000 notes overnight. Have added a copy of The Big Issue, plus an A5 Spiral bound notebook with a London Underground map cover. (Showing Baker Street!). Photos updated!
