Can’t believe it’s been 5/6 days since I last wrote – it felt shorter in my head, I swear. Anyway, I’m back. I guess.
A quick update on what I’ve been upto in the last week. Been writing memorials for my intra-moot rounds at University, precisely what I was doing when I started blogging – first in 2015 September, and then in 2017 January. I don’t think there’s much that comes close to the thrill of submitting something you put a lot of effort into. Specifically with memorials, that feeling for me is incomparable. It almost feels like a part of me is in every word I’ve typed out, every comma I’ve placed, and every iteration of every single sentence I’ve run through with my teammates.
Intras also provide this wonderful time to stay awake all night with batchmates to figure out novel arguments – sometimes even at 4AM, and then celebrate by taking a break to discuss music. Offlate I’ve found myself listening to a lot of music I used to listen to back in Grade 6 & Grade 7. Discussing the impact those songs had on me, and comparing that with the stories other people have – the first time people heard “Boulevard of Broken Dreams”, for example, is a wonderful way to break the ice and connect.
It’s one of the beautiful parts of living in a hostel, I think.
What am I upto for the next couple of days?
Also trying to wake up slightly early to get to the library, because A/C + books. Most conducive environment for learning and getting things done. Getting to see some of my favourite people over the course of this week, which is something I’ve been looking forward to for a while.
Maybe I’ll get some of my projects/exam studying done as well.
Tomorrow there is dosa for breakfast, so as always, I’ll leave you with something to look forward to!
(a blogpost about dosa is cooking, methinks)
