Lately, my personal life has taken priority over this blog and I took some time off. Part of it was because I felt a little tired by blogging-- this constant need to create content, the socializing, and the fact that I've been doing it for the past five years and the other part was because I was busy.
This isn't goodbye, rather a hello. A lot of things have happened in the time I was gone (as well as slightly before)-- graduation, moving into dorms, socializing, another year (hello, adulthood; I don't know if I'll like you) and so much more. The direction of this blog was questioned and I'm a little excited to see it into a new direction.
This is midterm week for so many people and I'm feeling the time crunch, too. Multiple exams and essays to be written as well as my layouts and articles for some other stuff that I work on to be made. I took up coffee drinking and tea has been pushed to the wayside. I think I'm a little addicted to how quickly caffeine wakes me up.
My life right now largely consists of the items in the photo.
Glasses// I've been using them a lot more and I think my eyesight is worsening because I use them so much. They were an occasional thing before but now they're a necessity. Alas, that's what happens when you're stuck in large lecture halls for three days in a week.
Notebook// The de-facto necessity for students. My MacBook sometimes serves as a replacement but it's a little hard to try to write chemical equations with all the subscripts, superscripts and Greek letters quickly.
MacBook// PC was never so clunky. The simplicity and minimalism of a Mac is just so... many feels. It was a splurge compared to other laptops but the graphics are nicer, which is nice since I use InDesign and Photoshop (as well as other Adobe Creative Suite programs.)
Phone// Like so many other people, my life is mostly on this phone. Feedly? Check. Gmail? Check. Google Calendar? Check. I rely on this for my alarm, my clock, my daily news-- pretty much everything.
Now where's my Nook? It's been out of battery ever since I moved in. Oops. I'm going to go charge it eventually, when I find the outlet adapter for it. For now, I'm limited (that's so not the right term) to physical books.
Anyway, I'm going to stop talking about books and actually hit the books.
