just living life
Gaining a deeper understanding on music performance and practicing. Had a bad cold but still managed to function. Always need to practice more.
05.09.2022 // the damn fire alarm went off in the uni library and everyone in the whole damn building had to evacuate and i was forced to interact with people that i'd been avoiding. not it, chief.

p.s i don't think anything serious happened with the fire alarm, this happens often in other buildings
Exams have begun! Im kind of enjoying it, but im also simultaneously terrified.
I had quite a bad breakdown last week, i felt overwhelmed because i had taken on too many projects and was struggling to manage it all. I realise i need to learn how to say no to some things, but it's something i need to work on
Life is much easier and more fulfilling when i prioritise, here's to actually acting on that knowledge.
In other news, i have given up gel pens this month of october, ball pens all the way.
It also seems important to mention that i have started and finished The Infinity Train, would highly recommend, somehow gives me whimsical alice-in-wonderland/physic damage Halloween vibes
I shall now return to studying geometry. Good vibes and warm wishes to everyone who sees this, have a wonderful spoopy October! <3

i did something very special today: i began a new journal! i haven’t journaled in such a long time, and part of me is worried that fragments of me are lost due to the fact that they were never recorded. but i looked back at Didion’s brilliant essay, “On Keeping a Notebook”. i began this notebook with quotes from her essay as a reminder. writing does not have to be perfect, rigid, factual. sometimes it will be fragmented, long rambles, pictures even. but they will all be a part of me.

“Rooster?” Joline addressed Bradshaw as he was already making his way down the hallway without barely having given a proper goodbye.
He stopped altogether, but didn’t turn around completely, looking back from his place.
“I believe that you have already been informed, but I will remind you in case you have forgotten” Joline gave him an acknowledging look. “Y/N will be leading DRAGON’s project.” She stopped for a second before adding “She will be your superior during the course of this project.”
He stared for a moment before replying with an almost inaudible ‘Great’; turned around and continued his way without giving us a second glare.

It's that season again! 🍂🎃
The new semester has started and I'm getting closer and closer to the end of my studies. This year I have so many exams and we are already discussing our topics for the upcoming Bachelor thesis. Luckily, I've already chosen my topic and in order to be as punctual as possible and get everything under one roof, I've already started writing the essay😂
However, I'm also really looking forward to Halloween and have taken my decorations out of the basement to make everything festive. I'm super happy with my little study corner and have tried to make everything as cozy as possible.
