I'm a postgraduate student with an old soul. I love ancient and medieval history, vintage clothing, and oldies music. Though I enjoy looking back at the past, I try to live in the moment and appreciate the little things in life. I love tea, movies, British television, period dramas, and classical music. Expect posts about the things I'm passionate about, which include but certainly are not limited to tap dancing, music, Disney, Harry Potter, Merlin, Sherlock, Doctor Who, musicals, Starkid, Mad Men, Downton Abbey, Once Upon a Time, and the Beatles.
