It’s been a while. If there’s something I’ve learned about good friends, it’s that sometimes it is a while. And it’s okay, as long as you all come back to each other. Last night I skyped my dearest friends who are dotted along the coastline, and the time and distance disappeared and then it was…… Continue reading A Plan
Sometimes time is on your side, and you can leave five minutes late and be caught in traffic and then be five minutes early. And I didn’t speed, but I did take a short cut. It’s funny, because I could’ve been twenty minutes late and it wouldn’t have mattered, because all the lecturer has discussed…… Continue reading Mud.
You have to look behind to draw a map. You can predict where the road’s going to curve and where it’ll end up, but you can’t know until you get there. I just sat down and calculated when I’ll be graduating from university. It’s further away than I hoped. Suddenly I can feel every lazy…… Continue reading More Study, Less Avocado?
Sunday afternoon can revive sunday morning, hopefully. Sunday morning meant skipping my soccer game, and I told myself it was to study, which might have been justified had it been true. Really, I had to finish my series on Netflix. But then study, right? Wrong! Then I noticed my room to be quite untidy. It’s…… Continue reading Afternoon Revives Morning.
Is there something I’ve forgotten? There’s a weight in my stomach, Right at the bottom. There’s a lot to do. A week’s worth of work, In just a day or two. The hours pass by, and I’m wasting time, complaining that my time flies. It’s raining outside, But today all is well, For today I have…… Continue reading
This Trimester at university is the first where I’m doing classes I’m excited about. Like it isn’t just a prerequisite to sweep away or a mathematical mess because ‘what if I have to work in an office?’. It’s just “wow I guess I DO wonder how post-colonial literary criticisms shaped literature today”, or “who is…… Continue reading 100%
We talked on skype which was quite nice although it really wasn’t the same. it made me realise you’ll visit but you’ll never quite be back. and we’re doing good things and growing into adulthood’s big shoes, but all the world is sand and every situation rushes through my fingers and from my grasp. you…… Continue reading Skype Call
Feigning confidence in adulthood is a risky balancing act. On one hand, making a doctors appointment, buying new tyres and sending important emails is all simpler than anybody seems to think it is. But when the doctor asks you to make some important decision on your own behalf, the tyre guy rips you off because…… Continue reading Blind Advice
Write yourself a letter and post some perspective. Write to yourself in a year’s time, and don’t look at it again until that time. Share your thoughts and ideas, and you’ll be able to reflect on that progress or lack thereof. Most of all, I recommend mentioning what’s stressing you now. More than likely, in…… Continue reading Dear, 365 Days
I have a mental bucket list, scrawled down somewhere in the back of my mind. A bucket list’s greatest shortcoming is that there’s no known time frame; you can put off each item to ‘another year’, and you never really know when your opportunities will end. So 20 things to do before 20 is a…… Continue reading To Do: Bucket Edition
