Taking a break

It’s time for a break from studying, worrying about my boyfriend that’s newly operated in hospital and all other things bombarding my mind.

First of I will pay tribute to the wonderful and inspiring Elisabeth Sladen that sadly passed away on the 19th of April.

 I’m sure we Whoians will miss her immensely but her spirit lives on. She is without a doubt my favourite companion of the Doctor and a personal female inspiration.

Now something a bit more cheerful at least to me. I needed something to cheer me up a bit I thought so I bought two Tim Burton Tragic Toys figurines. I love the book “The melancholy death of Oyster boy and other stories” so it’s only natural that I should collect the figures done after the artwork of that book. Though my absolute favourite Melonhead is not among those figurines. This time I caught Robot boy and  Pin cushion Queen.

This has left me with a new problem finding places to put my new treasure. I am a pirate you know.. I’ll go window shopping and suddenly go “ohhhh shiny” and buy something I like just like that. Very bad of me I must admit, but hey I only live for a short time.  Well my shelves is starting to look over crowded it’s time for new bookcases and that is soon. I have been naughty and bought some more classical literature too, like I didn’t have too many already. Somehow I can’t resist those classical books especially those from the Victorian era, which is also one of my nerdy interests.

 Yes this is my Tragic toy shelves and just my tragic toys. I also have a lot of Doctor who stuff, Death Note, Other Burton and LDD(Living dead dolls) plus some random figures like the crow and Spike from Buffy etc…

Yeah I know how nerdy is this… I might add I have Two Roleplaying games ( Doctor Who, Discworld), a half Warhammer Dark elves army, some LOTR Warhammer figures, a miniature Rugby team (unpainted), an unpainted statue of Damian Lewis as Major Dick Winters from BoB and lots more. And hark… countless pokémon I have both games and toys. I live by the principal not to be that kind of grown-up.

Whatever makes me wake up and out of bed in the morning is an investment so other people might think I am mad and probably as a hatter but you know what, I wouldn’t trade all the fun of all this for anything else. Sure I know it’s only stuff but it’s also inspiration and comfort when you feel yourself slip down to that dark and empty place called despair. So far so good (except I’m out of places to put things).

“I’ve always been misrepresented. You know, I could dress in a clown costume and laugh with the happy people but they’d still say I’m a dark personality. “

Current occupation is student in Gothenburg Sweden. At the moment I'm finishing my second thesis. My main subject is Literature, but I have dabbled with other subjects like gender studies, e-book creation and media studies, creative writing. I love to write, it's my dream and my therapy I try to remain actively writing as best I can. Not in any particular genres, just whatever feels interesting. At the moment my Dollhouse Blog based on my Asian Ball Jointed Doll characters takes up most of my blogging time.
