He thinks I've got fewer marbles than advertised?

Name Cordelia

Age 20

Location The United Kingdom (nice and vague there)

Live with Mum, Dad and sister Hermione (teetersslow) who is two years younger and my bestest friend in tha hole wurld

Future plans Creative Writing and Film Production at university - hope to be a writer of films, television, books.. direct films... draw, photograph... would rather like to change the world too just generally if that's agreeable

I love... writing, reading, language, philosophising, pondering humanity, discussions, being well intellectual, film, photography, DVD bonus features, theatre, makeup, haircuts, nail varnish, being ginger (albeit fake.. je suis blonde at the moment but it grows out of my head "just sort of brown" a la tenth Doctor), drawing (esp. people), knitting, hats, brooches, cardigans, bright tights, pretty dresses, pretty boys, pretty girls, boys and girls regardless of their prettiness, men and women and all souls of the world, DIMPLES, finding the beauty in everything, realising the importance and profound effect of style and beauty on the soul, saying things that perhaps initially sound pretentious but hopefully speaking with an honesty that transcends pretension and becomes truth (yeah.. not sure how successful I am at that one. I'm not really an ass. I'm just having trouble putting these things into words), Art Deco, French Renaissance decor (delicate pastel prettiness), old books, new books, castles, countryside, period drama, opulent costumes, being inspired by Stephen Fry and quotes and seeing the world in a different way because of him/them/everything, deep philosophical discussions, less serious discussions, discussions in general in which I am oft the least knowledgeable participant (but taking it all in from my corner and having a jolly old time), BEING SILLY, sharing silliness and seriousness and all things, YouTube, action figures... and a myriad of other wonderful things. Also rambling. I clearly do a lot of that.

Tumblr Clicketh here. I'm cordeliaistheone. I wanted that to be my LJ name but character limits will forever be my downfall.

Anything else? I've been ill since I was seven and it's had a big effect on my life. I found out a few years ago that my illness may be "Candida of the gut" and have since tried to stick to a diet free of wheat, sugar, yeast, dairy etc., which has helped somewhat, however as a result of all the years of being ill, going to every doctor out there and still not knowing what was wrong (STILL not knowing for sure what is wrong), I've suffered from depression and found it hard being "normal" and just getting on with things, even if the physical pain isn't as bad anymore.
I'm definitely not all doom and gloom on my journal (or in life!) and love to talk about all the fun stuff I've mentioned above, however it is an ongoing thing for me and before I friends-locked my journal a few people read some of the posts I did about my illness/depression and found them really helpful, found they could relate. I hate having to lock my journal because although I'm not the most amazing writer, I know how good it feels to see someone who is in the same boat as you and realise that you're not alone, even if it's just a few aspects you can relate to ("The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - that you'd thought special, particular to you. And here it is, set down by someone else, a person you've never met, maybe even someone long dead. And it's as if a hand has come out, and taken yours." - Hector, 'The History Boys'). So I wanted to address this here so that people can see this aspect of what I'm about as well as just my interests in film etc.
If you are just interested in Doctor Who or something else I've mentioned that's fine too - I don't expect every single one of my friends to comment on my rambley and occasionally tear-stained posts! I just want you all to know that I use LJ for cathartic reasons too and will always lend an ear (or shoulder - not cold: nice and warm and on which you can cry if you are that way inclined) to those who'd care for it.

Comment if you'd like to be friends and I'll likely add you back - I hope you enjoy it here! ♥
