Well, hello there.


Hi, I am Layla. Public servant by day; graduate student at night.

This blog is a mainly a little corner of the internet where I share my thoughts on books, life, figuring out academia (graduate school and one day, law school), and God knows what else. This blog is also my soundboard in my period drama fangirling.

Hope you’ll stay along for the ride, and that you won’t mind me waxing poetic over period drama.

The blog title is a line from Lewis Carroll’s poem “The Walrus and the Carpenter“.

The time has come,’ the Walrus said,
      To talk of many things:
Of shoes — and ships — and sealing-wax —
      Of cabbages — and kings —
And why the sea is boiling hot —
      And whether pigs have wings.’
