I believe, sincerely, that you can learn as much from mistakes, if not more, as you do from successes. It’s not a failure if you learn from it.

Tulip (and bluebell) update!
Mostly to cheer people up; I’m looking a you, dapperandspiffing, amongst others, but also to celebrate how many tulips became (pink) genetic mutations. K Starnes, you’re looking at your inheritance when we leave. 
The bluebells should be in full bloom soon, and you better believe when you step out into my back garden it’s like getting slapped in the face by floral awesomeness. 
Sweet baby unicorns, it smells amazing out there. My neighbours are loving me!

Tomorrow I am starting a ‘Complete beginners’ ballet class with my deskmate. Most of our colleagues think we’ve lost the plot and have regressed into little girls due to stress from our PhD theses.

Haters gonna hate.

SWEET BABY UNICORNS, people!
Look at that. 
That’s me. I think I’m 16. This was the year I was, objectively, the best pitcher in the county. Yep. The county. ‘Cause All Stars. 
I’m having a strange day off…

I realise the United Kingdom historically has one of the highest population densities in the entire world, but if this generation doesn’t start lowering its standards and shacking up at some point before ultimate perfection has been reached, our birth rate is going to make pandas look like slags.

Sweet baby unicorns, there is some excellent stuff on the Guardian today…

My partner made buttermilk fried chicken, double cornbread, and coleslaw, and we ate it all with our homegrown pickled beets and cottage cheese.
This is living!

I, personally, enjoyed reading your essay; thank you for your effort. You are an exceptional student, and I encourage you to continue to strive for greatness :-).

This isn’t the sort of marker I am, but, mates, I just read the UNICORN of first-year politics essays. Never would I put a smiley on something I marked. How unprofessional!

But, this essay was MA quality, and I ran the ‘originality report’; it’s for realsies …

*mind blown*
