So we can go back and play pretend

Fall Out Boy  – Alone Together

So I have a really strong urge to delete blog posts again. Nothing new, as I have cleared this blog and changed its url more times than I can remember. But as of now, I am convincing myself not to and just stick with it. Also, the wifi here is currently awfully, painfully slow. I keep trying to download the latest episode of Riverdale but it keeps failing. I am not a huge fan of the series though to be honest. The main reason why I bother watching the show is because of the characters. The familiarity of them. The nostalgia of reading the comics, and seeing them come to life (kinda). I do really wish they instilled more of the original Archie Comics though – but hey, who am I to say all this.

I do have to admit that I really like Jughead. So far. I think.

I have also finally caught up to the latest season and episode of Supernatural! It took me a little over a month to watch 250ish episodes but I did it! I don’t know whether I should be happy or sad (at my total lack of a social life), and whether I should feel as proud as I do of this accomplishment, but it is so worth it though. I love Supernatural. Maybe I should try catching up with Grimm next. I have only watched like three episodes from the first season and I quite like it so far.

But first, I really have to direct my focus on studies. Grimm can wait until semester break. (Stranger Things 2 anyone? Ah I can’t wait to revisit Hawkins/The Upside Down and reunite with the characters!) But until then, I have got tons of work piling up. Research to do, reports to write, presentations to prepare for. On the up side, approximately 9 months to go and I will (finally) be done with my Masters. Won’t even feel the time pass by.

What’s next? Ah. Adulting. Trying to find a job. PhD? Maybe someday, insyaAllah. Pray for me.

Growing up is not fun. Kids, don’t grow up too fast.

And before I forget! I also sold my artwork (if I can call them art, I definitely don’t think they are worthy of the title though) last two Sundays! I managed to sell 7 pieces that day. Not bad for a newbie. I honestly was prepared for the worst! The most memorable customer, I have to say, was this one lady. She is a psychologist, and she said that she knew that our work (my cousin sold her stuff too, she was the one who brought me to join in the first place) took time, took effort. So she bought one piece from each of us for her office! My cousin said that we need more people like her.

Another customer, also memorable to me, was contemplating to buy that she paced around and outside and finally came back to buy the piece when I honestly thought she changed her mind.

It was a really good experience for me, in stepping out of my comfort zone. What’s next for my “art” though? I don’t know. (ps, have patience, and never, ever smudge.)

And so that is an update on my life.

Until next time.
