Choosing The Labyrinth


♠ 19-year-old sentimental English girl.

♣ Dreamer, reader, would-be writer, thinker, coffee drinker.

"A picker up of shells on the shores of the great unknown ocean."


I’m Lydia and my favourite things include reading, eating and sleeping. Books, films and the internet are my preferred forms of escapism. Cynical is my default setting but I suppose I’m easily amused. At this point all I want to do is move out, travel and take photographs/write a book, but I’m poorer than a Weasley so this isn’t possible, hence the reason I’m still stewing in a mess of anxiety and depression. Ah well, maybe one day I’ll reach the green light at the end of the dock. I’m in my first year of studying English & Philosophy at the University of Liverpool.

I love going to the cinema with friends more often than I can afford to (GIVE ME MOVIES), eating pizza (actually anything with cheese on it), Jennifer Lawrence, getting lost in good books, imagining unlikely scenarios in my head, laughing at things that aren’t even funny, Tom Hiddleston, listening to music on long journeys, sleeping after a long day, and commiserating and celebrating humanity with good-hearted people who are trying to make the world a better place. I’m more of an Augustus Waters on the heroism front, but maybe time will change my mind. Speaking of time, there is not enough of it to do all the things I want to do, but I am trying to spend it wisely, because time you enjoy wasting is not wasted at all.

I prefer eloquence with a beat but I listen to a variety of music. My favourite bands/artists include Fall Out Boy, Panic! At The Disco, Paramore, Muse, Imagine Dragons, My Chemical Romance, VersaEmerge, We Are The In Crowd, fun., Lady Gaga and Patrick Stump.
