Rui and I have at the very least fulfilled most of our highschool dreams. Aka having some nice cheese board just because, in a cozy apartment of our own.

It's like I've just realized that the air around me has been water the whole time.


Slow mornings are for crafting emotions into cryptic words and making a graphic to match. The inspiration is a different song, but I'm suddenly reminded of "Life is like a boat", it's been many years since I've listened to it. Kinda surprised that I didn't make the connection to it from that Murakami quotation.

Once I have a permanent home, I'll have two large paintings on a wall, both of the sea, but one with a boat and one with a person floating. There was an artist with fantastic paintings of waves in Krog, I regret not taking a business card.

Now I don't even realize that I haven't gone on my normal internet rounds for a day, what is life?

But at least I've found another source of chaat so all is well. Bombay Street Food is super delicious.

Rui introduced me to this amazing bahn mi that's only $2.50. Time to start thinking of all costs in terms of bahn mi.

tell me

If I had to pick a day when all my free time evapourates into thesis time, it would be this Monday. So this blog will probably be quite for a while, which I'd like to blame on thesis, but the truth is that the beginning of forth year brings a lot of change.

Here's a song instead:

Some snaps of the copious amount of eating out that I've done since moving back to civilization.

 Bareburger, the salad is better. Though the onion rings are great.

 Platito, fulfilled my bucket list of ordering all of (a section) of their menu. 5/6 was fantastic. Then some ice cream overload hehe.

ND Sushi is always solid.

everything's all right

Listening to the lyrics, this is the perfect song to start forth year with haha.

If The Perks of Being a Wallflower perfectly described the awkwardness and restlessness of first year, then Before Sunrise is perfectly describing the even greater restlessness of forth year.

Leggo forth year.

Before Sunrise

Timing really is everything, and today was the perfect timing to finally watch Before Sunrise...which Rui recommended like years ago?

So much feels at this line:
I believe if there's any kind of God it wouldn't be in any of us, not you or me but just this little space in between. If there's any kind of magic in this world it must be in the attempt of understanding someone sharing something. I know, it's almost impossible to succeed but who cares really? The answer must be in the attempt. 

and really liked these couple of lines of the poem:
You have no idea where I came from
We have no idea where we're going
Lodged in life
Like branches in a river
Flowing downstream
Caught in the current
I carry you
You'll carry me
That's how it could be
Don't you know me?
Don't you know me by now? 

The opening and closing scenes are perfect, the ending song was perfect, but let's save that for another day when I'm buried in schoolwork. Meanwhile, I'm listening to it on repeat and desperately trying to imprint how I'm currently feeling to the song so I can hopefully recall it later with enough vividness.

Is this real life?!

Just 13 hours of classes in the fall (compared to like 31hrs previous semesters), which really means plenty of time for me to get cozy with thesis and grad school app.

In other news boxes are packed and will soon be in civilization again. Think I'm ready for forth year?
