Hey, look.

sometimes you see things and want others to see them too.
How every early morning should be spent.

Hozier- Like Real People Do

T’be sure. t’be sure, we went to Dublin!

A bit belated on this front, but from the 18th-21st of July, the Dream Team reunited in Dublin to go to Longitude Festival in Marlay Park. That’s right, the same week I got my job and graduated. Needless to say, the weekend was one big Guinness filled celebration.

Plentiful supplies of Guinness was consumed at the Guinness storehouse on our first day, where we got to pull our own pints. We are now officially Irish, I have a certificate that says so.

We decided to test our new-found Irish heritage at, as it turns the, the least Irish Irish Bar in Ireland- Temple Bar, as well as in a lovely typical Irish pub just next door. There were fiddles, guitars, loud singing (from everyone…even if the lyrics weren’t spot on) and Irish jigs galore. After 6 pints, we fit right in.

The gig itself was super duper, Bombay Bicycle club were just insane (notice the pure sense of joy in the pictures of me and Ben above!), along with George Ezra, Haim, James Vincent McMorrow (dear LORD was he good, I swooned and my heart swelled when he played We Don’t Eat) to name a few bigguns, along with some new bands- Say Lou Lou, First Aid Kit, Hudson Taylor, and Bondax to name a few.

The perfect end to what has been a ridiculous few weeks!

On the 17th July, I graduated with a First Class Honours degree in English Language and Linguistics! Who’da thunk it?

This also feels like an appropriate post to follow up on that dream job interview I had back on the 15th July…I had my interview at 10:30am, and at 2pm the same day, I was offered the job! I am now a Speech and Language Therapy Assistant for Virgin Care! Could not be more excited to start!!

In my natural habitat. At the bottom of a pint of Guinness.

After 2 weeks of being left in the dark about the mysterious questions marks left around the house meant, @eppsy296 and @bgepps greeted me in London yesterday wearing these! A platter of gin, and vouchers to spend in The London Gin Club, plus some ‘Gin and Titonic’ boat shaped ice cube moulds to us

The best looking bill I’ve ever seen. #LondonGinClub

Another chapter is closing in la vie of Livvy (I’m a poet and I didn’t know it…I’m also French apparently…)

The past few weeks has been a whirlwind of alchohol and packing up boxes and and goodbyes and hello’s, consequently I’ve had no time to do a blog, so here’s a nifty reminder for future me of what’s gone on!

17th of May- I handed over my KentSnow Presidency to Martin, fellow KentSnow extraordinaire/boyf.

31st May- Saw Paolo Nutini LIVE with Benjo, Tommo and SoFlo. A lovely day out in Brighton where Pimms was consumed and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle keyrings were purchased.

1st June- CompleteD the Colour Run around Wembley Stadium! My first ever 5k run, completed in just under half an hour.

7th June- I took part in the English Language and Linguistics Undergraduate Conference where I presented my Dissertation findings- had wonderful feedback from both my supervisor and various other lecturers, so I’m super chuffed. Topped this night off with my final ever UKC Summer Ball, which consisted of no rain and no concussion, so an improvement on previous years.

18th June- I officially moved out of Cherry Drive after 2 years of using and abusing it as my university digs. 

And Here’s the big week:

24th June- Found out I’ll be graduating with a First in English Language in Linguistics after getting 72% in my dissertation. BOOM.

25th June- Doubley good news, got an interview for my dream dream job! Here’s to weeks of prep before the big day in a fortnight!

26th June- I TURNED 21. My day consisted of playing with Playdo and making gardens in roasting tins. Not out of choice, I was at work experience, but I am far from complaining.

27th June- We went to watch the cricket for Tommo’s birthday! Hampshire vs Surrey at the Oval, and needless to say copious amounts of cider and beer were consumed.

28th June- I was surprised with a visit from Alice and Sophie after a long long long period of not seeing my dear friends! We all went to West Wittering and were blessed with glorious sunshine to belatedly celebrate my 21st!

AND BREATHE.
