started to watch Foundation, it means I need to finish the book series. also going deep into React finally
Continuing in the meta-saga of archiving our old Wordpress posts, here are some highlights from an article about namesake graffiti!
"What is it about writing your name on the nearest surface that makes people do it so often? Sidewalks are littered with little indications of the past people who have walked them. Walls of buildings, dorm rooms, cafes, even classrooms are decorated with little identifications of the people who have left their marks there. The most iconic messages left behind are those “___ was here” messages. When you are writing your name on your desk in your classroom in sharpie, you are leaving a reminder of yourself there for the future. Perhaps you’ll return one day and find the place where you left your name, wiped away by a janitor or teacher, or maybe you’ll still find it there, in that green sharpie pen you used to use, winking up at you from the wood.
Alongside, “___ was here” messages, are the famous “___ + ___” graffiti, where couples write their names or initials together. A couple might be walking hand-in-hand and spy a slab of wet cement nearby. They’ll look at one another, grin, and write their initials looped inside of a heart in the cement with a stick. One day, that cement may harden and leave their names immortalized there for passing people to see.
It is common for us, as observers, to walk down the sidewalk and see words and names written across the stone. We may glance at them, or ignore them, or stop and read them from time to time, but we generally don’t find anything out of the ordinary about their existence there. I might shrug and say, “Looks like someone took advantage of some wet cement” and go about my day. I’ll have forgotten the incident five seconds later.
... More than just marking presence, but writing a name down can also be an act of ownership. “This” desk was “the” desk I used in seventh grade, “this” notebook was where I used to sketch, “this” wall was a part of my dorm room my freshman year of college… and so on. Ownership is a tricky business, as friends can write, for example, “Jessica was here” on your notebook, or on your calculator, or even the glass window of your car—a stranger might come across this, or you might years later, and mistake the items in question for your friend’s property. We write our names on our papers, our homework, to state “Hey, I made this, I created this, I did this.” We want the credit. It is for the claim of ownership of a text, a space, an item.
But writing our names on surfaces in restaurants, classroom desks, sidewalks, are not always about claiming them as ours; they can be about showing that, as people, we came here, we sat here, we stepped here. Writing our names on these places… the permanence of the act marks your place in the world. It is the act of defining our existence in time. It marks the time you spent in that space, maybe even just for a fraction of a moment, or a semester of school, or a day in the sunshine taking a walk in the park. It’s a means of staking a claim: “I was here. I existed.”"

Here's the aftermath of four days of intense studying. My brain in tired, I'll go lie down now.
As for the autumn challenge:
Spooky mood or cozy mood?
The two concepts go hand-in-hand for me, I always feel cozy while watching or reading spooky things.
Trick or treat?

Not studying for an exam which i ended crushing makes me wanna marry me so i can divorce me. Future me: just study u hoe.
Last tutorial I had I was really down because I didn’t get very good feedback for my ideas for my dissertation. I don’t know if I was so nervous I didn’t explain properly or if my idea really isn’t as good as I thought it was but it made me work harder this week to find articles and journals I can use as reference. I reached out to some people in the industry that could help me out and I managed to find some more articles that are interesting and much more useful for my ideas. I feel a little better about it now this week.
Gosh what a good day. Please read my other posts so u can understand my fucking emotional inestability😋🤩
🍂26th October - Spooky mood or cozy mood?
Spooky Mood. As soon as october is around the corner I get into spooky mood. This is why october is my favorite month
🍂27th October - Trick or treat?
I did that once and it was quit fun but now I'm not really into it anymore. I prefer sitting on the coach watching a horror movie and enjoy my warm blanket.
96 Days until my final exam
what I did today:
🍯 checked my budget planner
🍯 updated my personal calender
🍯 practiced Blue from Wonho

okay but studying humanities is so aesthetic?
y’all i started a studyblr (ik ik, but it makes me feel at peace). if you wanna check it out it’s @lavenderexistentialist
After 7(8?) Years on here as a studyblr, I'm almost finished with my studies (for now) T_T I've got my dream out-of-uni job lined up. It's surreal thinking about where I am now and how much things and I have changed. I still remember exactly where I was when I started this studyblr all those years ago.
I've seen the studyblr community change and grow so much. It's had such a big influence on who I am, my approach to life, and how I do things. I'm still amazed that people follow me. After all of this, I am even more grateful for the community that has been built here.
What to do when I finish study? I don't know, like everything else, I feel uncertain about it. I'll probably still be around, lurk, maybe be more of an advice studyblr or documenting my first steps into the working world! Either way, I'd still like to do a giveaway. So if you're seeing this, keep an eye out for that (though it may not be for quite a while).
What a fantastic, lovely, supportive community I got to and get to be a part of! Let's cherish it!

~ Week 4 of uni
100 days of productivity- day 97 (27/10/21)
Busy busy busy day! Lectures and studying in the morning, came home to cook lunch before heading out for dance class, then language café (my Spanish is getting so much better!) - where I stumbled across a girl from Paris so we spent 15 minutes after the cafe chatting in french (and my brain got very confused between the three languages…). Having a bite to eat now before I’m off to my second dance class of the day, jazz this time, which I’m very excited for!
