[WHINES LOUDLY] Nelllll gosh I’m getting teary-eyed rn reading this! I remember standing to the side of the vip area and seeing you talk to Rob and oh no I miss him (and his hugs!) a lot this is silly why is October so far away waaaaah :c

EVERYTHING IS SO AWFUL I AM SO EMOTIONAL ABOUT THIS MAN UGHHHH wow let me cry on cue just mention rob and how he thanked ME god OH GODDD

I became nostalgic about rob benedict last night, because louden swain opened an instagram and to celebrate I posted a couple of my rob pics from jibcon. and then I talked to sophie on whatsapp.

so then I dreamed about rob. it was SUCH a lovely dream, because even though I was friends with him in my dream and had to say goodbye to him several times (idk) - he did this by giving me lots of hugs.

and it was just like when he gave me a hug goodbye in rome. he gave me the BIGGEST squishy hug and he gave me such a heartfelt thank you and didn’t let go for the longest time, like he just put extra genuine thanks and emotion into the hug. and I swear, I managed to not cry when I said goodbye to most of my friends that week, but rob and his heartfelt thank you and loving goodbye made me cry when I left.

so this morning when I woke up, I woke from a dream where I’d gotten several of rob’s amazing squishy hugs and I woke up with my heart practically BURSTING with how much I love and miss him. ugh it’s practically unbearable he is just the loveliest man with the loveliest smile and the most genuinely sweet and open heart even to people like me, whom he has met only three times over a year.

I just really, really care so much about rob benedict.

Oh my that beach looks amazing! I would give so much for a private beach like that (at least it looks private?)

it’s private in that it’s not public. but it’s not owned by us (we own the land up to the rose bushes that separate the grass from the sand) - it’s owned by local farmers, as is most of the land around us that isn’t plots for houses. :)

eleven houses have access to this particular bit of beach. :)

remember tumblr:

it’s pretty important to find your drift partner, don’t get me wrong. but it’s also really really important to find your control room team— y’know, that group of people that you love and trust and despite (or because of) not being able to actually read your mind, still watch your back all the time and aren’t afraid to override the controls and manually shut your shit down to save your fucking lives.

remember those people too.

panoramas of my mum’s garden and of the beach just beyond it
the 2nd panorama is taken from just to the right beyond the shed(s) in the left part of the first picture.

it’s nice here (though hellishly hot rn), but I’m glad to be going home on the night train tonight.
