Omg I'm still awake now (2am) cos it's sooooo freaking warm!!!Gah it's 28c and I don't have a fan in my room, sweating so much. London, why you so hot?? Think I'll have to get a fan tomorrow or I'll melt in my bed. Actually super excited can't sleep cos 1. Someone special is coming to London in a few days! Not Karthik cos 2. He just got his flight here for Sept! Still have to wait 2.5 months to see him 😱😭 but issokay I need to focus on writing anyway.
Wah I didn't think I could but I replied all your comments in my @sweatlee:080617 post! I figured it's only fair since you guys left such thoughtful comments and I feel incredibly honored to have people who have followed me for over a decade :')The only problem is it's damn hard to reply to comments on dayre cos comments can't be threaded so I had to scroll and reply, sometimes accidentally exiting and had to rewrite everything again 😭Anyway I'm super semangat now and will blog more!
Hehe this series of potatoes in love is so cute! Sent this to Karthik cos it's how I feel everytime I get his texts 😍 He was like "is this a hint for me to text you more?"I love it when we text, which we hardly did when I was home since there's no reason to text when you live together other than "eh where to meet/eat" hahaThis distance is really doing us a lot of good since we have more meaningful conversations and yet still have our own space. But I'm glad it's coming to an end soon!
I'm still awake now at 2.30am because I just spent a ridiculous amount of time reading my old blog entries and comments. Someone recently told me that she found my entry on my breakup helpful and I wanted to see what I wrote...and just couldn't get out of the rabbit hole.Anyone reads my blog from way back when? It was such an interesting and yet depressing phase of my life. Transitioning from a long-term relationship that was very public, to one that was very much a taboo.
Yasssss finally sent out a summary of my paper to you guys! If you did not receive it, please let me know. Just in case I missed some emails out.Realised I haven't posted in a while. I dunno, I just don't feel like writing anymore. Maybe it's time to say goodbye to my 13 years of blogging journey. It just feels more and more difficult now penning my thoughts and activities to be read by people I don't know.Since the London attack, I've been feeling a bit off somehow.
At the global scholars symposium this weekend at Cambridge! This is Tarell McCraney speaking, he's the writer for the oscar-winning film, Moonlight. I thought what he said in this quote here is so powerful and so true.We've been talking a lot about systemic and institutionalised discrimination this whole conference and it's been very enlightening (albeit a little repetitive). It'll be interesting to hear what the white men in this audience feel about this..
