Adventure in my blood, Home in my heart
Jane Porter here. Nineteen years old and a sophomore at Elias University. I want to fly and maybe touch the clouds sometimes, but I know that's very much impossible, so I'll settle with exploring the great world around me. Double Major in Ecology and Art History, with a minor in Art.

I suppose I’d be entirely unoriginal I said exams and papers were getting to me.

I bet you write lovely sonnets, Jane Porter. It just seems like it’d come naturally.

Partially yes. Summer is going to be great. Otherwise it’s just me, overly peppy as per usual

I’m not the best poet though. I went through a limerick phase when I was twelve, but that’s about it. I could try. The iambic pentameter would be off though.

Have you got any big summer plans, then?

Oh you can say that again. I now can understand how hard everyone who goes to traditional school has it. Homeschooling has nothing on this, that’s for sure. But it’ll be real nice once we’re graced with summer vacation at last.

Well that’s excellent to hear. I get the vibe you close out this thing completely to focus on your studies, so it’s probably good to get time to relax. 

Oh yes, I was homeschooled for all my life so when I had my first year here it was a shock. I’m glad I’ve only got to follow a school year calender for four years instead of my entire education. It’s restricting. The best things aren’t learned in a classroom after all.

Guilty as charged. I haven’t touched this blog for weeks since work started piling up.

I’ll forgive you just this once. As long as you promise not to let it happen again.

I am great. Couldn’t be better actually.

Maybe when I’m not completely frazzled from work, I’ll compose a sonnet instead of merely complaining.

Oh that’s good! Are you excited for term to end or is it something else?

Maybe, but that doesn’t keep it from being the truth.

I don’t like saying unoriginal things though. Quite boring. Though I suppose times like now, it’s unavoidable.

How are you?

Unoriginal, but completely true, Miss Porter. I think I’ll safely say April is one hectic month. For me, add a bit more back and forth traveling and some awfully stuffy social events on top of those exams and papers. 

image

But you managed to pull through, yeah?

It’ll be so wonderful when everything’s over and summer starts and I can sit outside and simply do nothing and not worry about everything I’ve got to do. I’ve got a delightfully empty summer planned thus far.

Managing as we speak. Finally, I’ve had some free time to sit down.

It’s such a lovely moment for a late night tea, don’t you think?

Mmmh, that sounds nice. Mine was usually very sweet and very sugary, too sweet for any of my brothers. Explains my hyper childhood, I suppose.

image

Oh no, that sounds terrible. I hate catching up, even if it’s a day. I can’t imagine what you’re going through. At least we have Spring Break next week, right? Maybe you’ll be able to fix everything up then?

Oh, John always makes fun of me for putting too much sugar in my tea. Well, I’ve spoken to people who sell the stuff—make it with the leaves themselves, even—and they say that sugar can often bring out the subtle flavors that would normally go missing.

That’s what I’m planning on. I’m just glad my teachers understood and let me make things up. They can be awful about that sometimes. 

It’s such a lovely moment for a late night tea, don’t you think?

fuck-ohana:

 

Why you gotta leave out hot chocolate like that? Or Coffee? Or hot milk? Why just tea? Do you have something against the others? Why….? That’s kind of rude..

image

It’s my favorite, that’s why. Though hot chocolate does sound good now that you mention it. And though coffee’s good on occasion, it’s not something you want to have before bed, is it?

It’s such a lovely moment for a late night tea, don’t you think?

I understand you completely. I was just making some myself. It makes me miss my mum back home, though, because she had this magic way of making it just right….I really should phone home soon.

image

But how are you, Jane? Other than….tea advertise-y?

My mum always liked it with a lot of lemon and I suppose I’ve picked up the habit. 

I’m well, just a bit swamped in work. Missed a week of school a little while’s back and still playing catch up. Suppose that’s why I needed a tea break.
