Beyond my wildest dreams

All my life I’ve stumbled, yet up here I am just perfect. Perfect as I’ll ever be. Marie Digby, “Spell” So, I finally got the last grade that I have been waiting for. After the weekend, I will be asking how I can file a late application for graduation. I don’t know if I can make it to the graduation ceremony next Saturday, but for me, to be formally declared as a graduate from the diploma program is enough for me, as it would mean I can move on to the Masters’ proper of the graduate degree I am in. There are a lot of things I need to get done, but I’m ready for it.

Other ways in which we can practise self-care.

Spa days? Check. Pampering sessions? Check. Don’t get me wrong, both are good for self-care. But because of the current pandemic, we know that going to the spa isn’t possible at the moment. There’s no need to worry–there are other things people can exercise self-care. They are probably things that you you all might doing already–either way, I thought I’d share them. Exercise. Maybe this one’s no longer a surprise to some people, especially if they do it regularly. Admittedly, I struggle to do this regularly. But I will do my best to be more diligent about exercising.

Anyone who knows me well that I love period dramas like a little boy loves cake. It’s a poor simile, I know, but that’s what I can think of right now. But if there’s any specific period that interests me, it’s the late nineteenth century, up to the end of the Second World War. And I enjoy reading about that period, too. There were books that I wanted to buy and am saving up for, but recently, I have found the top three that I really wanted to buy, and I can read them for free. Where else? Scribd, of course. Sure, I pay for a subscription, but it’s a perk of said subscription, so it’s all good.

This semester: A reflection.

Note: This picture was taken in 2019– long before the pandemic.  I loved  exploring the university campus, and I did it whenever I had time. And I’m glad I did, especially when the pandemic hit our country. I won’t lie, I miss my uni campus very much. There’s so much about it that gives me peace–whether it’s the trees and lush greenery or the confidence it has given me, it’s hard to tell. Maybe I am just half-bottle-of-whining–but I would very much like to say that this semester wasn’t the easiest I’ve ever had. If I thought my first semester was awful, the second was far worse. Not only was I struggling to revise a research proposal, I was also trying to cope with the requirements for the subjects I was currently enrolled in.
