winter

november Another four pages of my calendar book has passed. As I flip through it, I see many names of people I love. On one hand, I’m confused as to how I managed to not exhaust myself but on the other, I can feel that my heart tank is extremely full. November was spent mostly […]

The Last (for now) Days of Being a Student

29 Oct 2018 Honestly though, my last semester in uni wasn’t very studious.
