My wonderful job is over. No more children’s books for me for another year at least. On the bright side though, I’ll probably have a job when I graduate.

INTERVIEWER: Which is your favourite club?
JASON ISSACS: The exclusive British actors' I-was-in-Harry-Potter-and-you-weren't society, of which I am a smug member.
I feel a little like smashing something. Another reason why I miss school: being able to lock myself in my room for hours. Without people. No people, please.

Mum and I are watching a movie called From Prada to Nada. It’s a Latina, L.A. version of Sense & Sensibility. It’s pretty great.
I really, really love my job.
Black Phoenix reviews, Part II
I’m currently wearing Eclipse, which was said to smell like almonds and happiness. When I first put it on, it was overwhelmingly marzipan (blergh). Mellowed out, it’s much nicer, rather cinnamony and warm. Still deciding. Cheshire Cat smelled a little too much like soap. Very nice grapefruit, but with the smells all together I just didn’t love it. Frumious Bandersnatch was a...
I got tons of great swag today, most of it on mega-sale, including a new pair of glasses that are yellow on the inside and a black lace flapper dress for about $30.

I have many opinions about this movie. I think they made a lot of very dumb choices that weakened it considerably. I also think that the beautiful moments were the most beautiful I’ve seen. I cried bitterly and I’ll probably see it several more times in theaters. But part of the reason I cried so much was because this was yet another ending. One of my friends texted me to say that we...
I've started to sample the perfumes I ordered...
…here are my impressions. My favorite so far is definitely Dorian. I wore it to work today, and it’s lovely, rather more like I expected Snake Oil to be: vanilla, but with a soft spicy something to it. I’ll probably end up with a bottle of this. Jersey Devil is a little more Yankee Candle-ish than I’d like. It started off very vegetable, but has mellowed out to a layered...
The weirdest things make me incredibly, irrationally uncomfortable. Like tear-my-skin-off, vomit, and-run-away-sobbing uncomfortable.
Me: Lemme know when your plane has landed. Also, I ordered some sushi, so you'll have some bites to eat when you get home.
Mom: Clearly you must be my favorite child.
I’ve been thinking about clichés. I usually hate them, particularly if they are of a romantic nature. It seems to me that most clichés are still around for the same reasons that we use euphemisms; it makes things easier to simplify, contextualize, and not bother to grasp a thing’s full implications. Or else, they kind of got stuck in modern understanding and people use them out of...
Okay, all this premiere footage needs to stop. I’m going to have a meltdown.
