sometimes, when i feel like the entire universe is against me, i pluck out some stars from the night sky and keep them in a jar on the desk of my room to remind myself that even on the stormiest of nights, there is a way to create happiness with my own two hands. #Details in my story 🌌 (also, hands are so hard to draw omg #maytriestoart)
i will preserve our memories like dead flowers pressed in dusty notebooks and spilled ink. Sorry for the absence lately; I've become quite annoyed with social media and have been relishing real life instead. Who knows -- maybe The Mayden will soon become a hazy memory between browned parchment, leaves falling from pages like confetti for its funeral. 🥀 . Edit: I realize on hindsight that this post seems to come off as an imminent farewell to The Mayden (too dramatic? 😹) To clarify, I've just been growing disdainful of the channels I curate and this has been less than demotivating for myself to create. I'm sure that after a week or two in the drawing room (and after my hormones have calmed a bit) all will be okay. ✨
A page from a while back. The most beautiful love, it reads. This is a page in which I attempted to paint veins but painted what looks like red branches instead. I do not art, cannot art and should not art but will still art anyway. #bchopelessromantic 🌹
All smiles because guess who just finished her exams today? 🙋🙆 . It'll be all books and writing for me for a while (and also counting down the days to #PLLEndGame) before diving back into life, and I can't ask for anything more.
I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream. - Martin Luther King Jr., I Have a Dream I exit the examination hall, fresh off the trial I had to undergo to bid Discrete Mathematics and Programming Fundamentals goodbye. My brain is soaked dry and my energy drained as I make my way home. I often find myself gravitating towards quick re-reads when I need a pick me up, whether it be nursing the quavers of a crushed heart or releasing the stress of examinations. Today, I pick out a book entitled, Speeches that Changed the World, gifted years ago by a middle-aged man who gave my siblings and I the ardour of reading. I flip to Martin Luther King Jr.'s I Have a Dream, light a candle and sit in a dark air-conditioned room to digest all of its goodness.
HI EVERYONE, HAPPY MAY!! (get it????? ok I will show myself out now) But really, wishing everyone a lovely new month! Anyway, this was one of the few times my face has looked decent in the past weeks 🙆✨ (so decent that I had to post this across several accounts a few times 😹) . #motd #wakeupandmakeup #fiercesociety
Spent two hours making ripped jeans instead of studying last night. Send help. 🆘 . (P.S let's play a game: count the number of mugs on my feed 😹🍵)
