What does not kill me, makes me stronger

I have been not writing for a while because I had the phobia of writing after the D submission. I realised this is a year without any break. Look at how each assignment period overlap with another, even during the Christmas break. It’s exhausting yet challenging! Less than two months to final crit and then summer break! No holiday plans yet because I’m broke…

Loch Lomond in Winter

This post was written yesterday:

Let’s begin with a random analysis of my recent sleeping pattern. I don’t remember specific days, but I remember, I sometimes went to bed at 3am, 5am, 7am, 11am, 4pm, 8pm, and woke up at 8am, 2pm, 4pm, 11pm respectively, or slept for a couple of hours or even without sleeping at all throughout the whole night. Well, in the field of architecture, this sleeping pattern is normal, and it’s abnormal to go to bed at 10am and follow regular sleeping pattern, except for super efficient and smart people. Unfortunately, I’m not one of them.

I have been feeling rather emo recently, and I like to curl up into a ball at the couch or bed when that happens. So, although I woke up at 4pm today, I took a nap at the couch from 8pm-11pm. Despite the dissertation being due next Tuesday, this is not the stress I should probably be feeling! Perhaps this is what people call, PMS!!!

Nonetheless, Alex surprised me with McDonald’s after his uni yesterday (he usually refuses to eat takeaway). And it made my day – McDonald’s and ice cream never fail to make me feel better. =)

And today, I felt even more emo when I looked at the mismatched leftover ingredients to use for tonight’s dinner, a slice of fish fillet and some random vegetables. It was my turn to cook, but I didn’t know how to prepare them. In the end, Alex cooked along so I wouldn’t feel lonely preparing alone, and one of the dishes I prepared was fish fillet with spinach, which tasted better than it sounded =)

I spent some time selecting and editing some photos from the trip to Loch Lomond during winter. There are more but these are what I have for now…

Writing vs Drawing

It’s perhaps not to late to realise that it’s easier to write my dissertation on notepad, the media which I usually write my blog entries. Exactly two more weeks to go, and we shall be free from ‘words’. Dissertation makes me appreciate design studio more..
