Museums, daydreams, embroidered school uniforms, the theatre and opera concerts.
- Aimless writing just to feel the ink flow under your fingers
- Time? Don’t know her. Days of the week? Not real.
- Online learning either matches your primary learning style perfectly or not at all
- “I can pursue my own interests?”
- Similarly: remembering how much you’ve missed creative freedom
- S t i m m i n g
- Coffee as a meal replacement
- Realizing how few friends you had in the first place
- “How much do I really like this major?”
- Lingering sense of unfulfillment
- “Maybe I should make another sideblog…”
“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet”
Btw it’s okay if you’re interested in something and you don’t know much about it yet
I know a lot of DA sometimes makes it seem like you need to just Know Things but it’s okay if you don’t know much yet
If you’re like “Yeah I really like history!” and someone asks you your favorite time period or something and you’re thinking “Shit, I don’t even know what actually counts as a time period” that’s OKAY.
If you say you like art a lot but you can’t identify a favorite artist or favorite style because you’re just not super familiar with the nuances of it yet, that’s OKAY.
If you want to like books but struggle to find things to read that you can actually get through, whether because you have difficulty reading or difficulty focusing or you haven’t had the chance to get familiar with a lot of authors, especially classic authors, or anything else along those lines, that’s OKAY.
You don’t have to know things to enjoy them, especially not yet. It’s okay if you want to learn more but haven’t had the opportunity. You’re allowed to like things, even if you don’t have a lot of knowledge in the subject. It’s okay. It’s allowed.
