‘Like you, I am a letter writer..’

I love to see the page cover up with lines like a bathtub filling with warm water, and I love to sense the slight tension as the pen nib slides over the paper. Writing a letter holds such promise and excitement, and in preparing one I feel as if I am showing the same devotion as when I cook a fine meal for loved ones. I imagine the whole chain of people who touch the letter along its way, the expression on my friend’s face when the letter appears in his box, his curiosity as he deciphers those stamps, his expectancy as he picks up the letter opener and slits the envelope seal, and then, hopefully, his delight at reading what I have to tell him. But above all, I suppose I savor the most the intimacy that letter writing allows between two people, the possibility of standing as far back or as far forward as one wishes to convey a sentiment. I appreciate how you can hide secret thoughts behind words, or how you can step out in the spotlight with them.

the annoying part of graduating..

is to lose access to your email account 3 months after you finish your studies without any notice :/ I got 10 days extension after contacting the IT team and since the afternoon I am trying to sync email accounts and go through all the 600 emails that accumulated in my inbox, archive them before I export my emails in a .pst format (no idea if I will have my emails stored properly in Gmail afterwards, but I try. currently down to 465 and my eyes are closing down). I decided to turn this inconvenience into a massive tidying/cleaning of stuff from my computer and bought a 1,5 TB hardrive in addition to my old 500 GB and 160 GB Ipod storage space. I guess no job applications for a few days (hurray!).

As I was deleting some unnecessary photos, I came across a snapshot of my answer to a quiz question and laughed so hard 😀 I am going to put a sketch first for a little justification xD 


You agree right? We’ve had tough lives, and with part-time jobs added to that, imagine the level of tiredness.. With that tiredness in mind, maybe you agree with me when I say that it was okay to write ‘slut’ in my quiz 😀 😀
