Re: Word of Today

Imperfect

I find the imperfections of human feeling very beautiful. Being flawed myself, I've never been attracted to plastic perfection or impeccable words.
Feelings make us, define us.
Contemplating differences, philosophies, thought processes, other choices and various reasons lead to reflection.

There's such incredible beauty, despair and hope in people and the thoughts they leave behind. Some of them had the talent to capture their perceptions and express them through art and literature, some simply lived and disappeared into time without leaving their existence to be remembered.

All were unique.

Introspection. And, courage..to think independently, in this instance. Effort.

I know how you feel, hang in there...I've always had the nastiest exams in May. But I made a huge effort to not forget that May is the most beautiful month in the year (and not coz it's my bday, hahahaha). Time is kind though, it will push us through irrespectively of our anxieties and feeling of not being ready.

(And then we party!)

I'm working around the clock, too, its intense. Hugs.

Re: Word of Today

Prepared. Everything works better when one is prepared. A playdate on the agenda after work today, I have already cooked all in advance, woohoo, before studying.

Then I cram again, thumbs up to those in the same cramming marathon!

Re: Word of Today

Invasive species. Niche. Adjustment. Adaptation. Parasitical. Hybridizing. Local.

Natural processes, but I think the volume is getting scary. And I don't think it is a problem of subjective assessment, though a lot of concepts in environmental sci probably are.

Re: Word of Today

Reality check

Lost attractiveness and youth, earned a mind, many wrinkles and a few unwanted curves.. and new glasses.
Life is so wonderfully interesting now that I no longer give a damn.

If we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended,
That you have but slumber'd here
While these visions did appear.
