Hi, I'm V. It's not my real name - not even close - but I'm Vigilo here, and I've been other V-beginning pretentious Latin usernames elsewhere on the internet for around six years now, so V works!

If you need anything, or if you just want to talk, feel free to comment / note me. :note:

:heart:

I haven't replied to you yet because
- I reply at a glacial pace
- I accidentally deleted your message and can't find it
- I've awkwardly, silently backed away
- I've already replied to you by somewhere else
- I mentally replied to you and considered the matter closed
- I love you and I don't want to lower your opinion of me any further

Various links
Goodreads
Interests
The thing is, I have been (sort of) around, mostly for theWrittenRevolution if at all, but not much elsewhere here (or on Facebook, to prove a point - at least when I neglect my online friends, I neglect them everywhere and equally?), and this isn't to say I will be because I don't want to jinx myself, but just to say where I've been.

I have also been writing, as you've probably noticed - I completed NaPoWriMo, with The Found Poetry Review's PoMoSco project! Incidentally, I'm not touching found poetry again for ... a while. Found poetry poets (found poets? are the rest of us lost?), you have my complete and utter admiration. Anyway, so, I'll be posting a few poems - from NaPoWriMo and otherwise - from now on, but not all at once. Hopefully you'll like them.

Also, speaking of poems, three poems of mine are up on The Kajal Collective, and Idiopathic is now up on Wordgathering (with an audio recording done by Jill Khoury), which is a journal for and about disability literature. (Thank you all again for your advice re: my editing dilemma!)

In other news, I got a pretty medical bracelet! Actually, well, my neurologist gently ordered me to get a medical bracelet after all the complete nonsense my brain and body've been pulling lately, so. (I'm on so much medication, you guys, I have a morning and night routine. Apparently I'm severely vitamin d deficient as well as everything else, so.) Apparently there's an epilepsy society that has free ones, but I figured if I was going to get a medical bracelet, it was going to be a medical bracelet with style, so, therefore, this is my early birthday present:

It's pretty gorgeous. 

Oh, and, I'll have the job in August, I think! I'm pretty sure, anyway, because they called me up about the tutoring and there's a summer school in August, and it sounds good. Also, about August, my housing arrangements have changed because of flighty flatmates, but not to worry, the new place (now a flat instead of a house) is equally gorgeous and has a super spacious balcony where I will put all the plants, and it also comes with the benefits of a) being much more similar to my place in Shanghai and b) having only one flatmate, who is a very close friend of mine and absolutely wonderful. 

I'm in Shanghai now, actually, I have been since the start of June (because my mother missed me awfully and whisked me off as soon as she could). I got to see and do so many wonderful things before I left, though: I went to an Alexander McQueen fashion exhibit, which was absolutely gorgeous; saw an opera - The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny - for free as a part of a study (Alabama Song was my favourite - you can listen to Angel Blue sing it beautifully here!); saw Punch and Judy live at Covent Garden; etc, etc. Exam results and whatnot are coming at the start of July, so that's scary, though hopefully it won't be too bad. Still, I was completely right: linguistics is easily the best thing in the world, don't let anyone tell you different.

Apart from that, I've been reading and watching a lot - I have this friend, actually, he's like a drug dealer except he gives me free comics and takes me to free movies and plays (he's the one I saw Treasure Island with at the National Theatre!), so not like a drug dealer at all, but the point is, I've now read so many comics and watched - well, not as much, but I've dabbled in anime and cartoon shows more than I did previously. Don't worry, though, it's a mutually destructive friendship: I've given him who-knows-how-many books and made him watch equal amounts of anime and tv shows.

He also gave me a Batman notebook, which had stickers, and now I have a Bat-Mac!

Untitled by Vigilo

Anyway, I'll stop now. Oh, before I do - the journal title is from In Jerusalem by Mahmoud Darwish, which is an absolutely sublime poem that I highly recommend, by a poet who's quickly becoming one of my favourites. How are you, what are your plans for the summer? :heart:
  • Listening to: Not A Love Song (acoustic) by Uh Huh Her
  • Reading: Daughter by Janice Lee

Tag a quality deviant: You’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them! Heart

The winter winds blow and we shall have snow
And what will the robin do then, poor thing.
He'll sit in the barn to keep himself warm
And tuck his head under his wing, poor thing.

It's been a breath of fresh air to see you around again, V. You know we missed you more than any of us - even those that are writers! - can put words to, right?

Anyways, you favorited a piece of my writing, and seeing a favorite from you always makes my day. Actually, just seeing anything from you makes my day, but don't let the diminish my appreciation stemming from the fact that you actually took the time to read a piece from me. ;p

All the :heart:s, V.

Darling, I was looking for that lovely poem you wrote based on Federico Garcia Lorca's poem about green. Can you point me in the right direction? Or possibly remind me what the form is called? I'm thinking of writing something like it :)
