it’s that time of year again!
You can’t find intimacy—you can’t find home—when you’re always hiding behind masks. Intimacy requires a certain level of vulnerability. It requires a certain level of you exposing your fragmented, contradictory self to someone else. You running the risk of having your core self rejected and hurt and misunderstood.

Rise and shine. Busy bee. Big exam in 27 hours. Ugh.
Your strenghts and your weaknesses shouldn’t be a burden.
They are parts of you and what makes you YOU.
Write down what you think your strenghts are, then use them in your everyday life to improve your work, your relationships and yourself in general.
Write down what you think your weaknesses are, then make some plans to change them and make yourself a better person. You don’t need to change all of your behaviour right this second. You can try step by step to make some little changes that will end up being a huge improvement.
It truly helps you connect with yourself and who you truly are inside on both good and bad aspects.
You are in charge of those aspects and you can use them for the better or you can keep being who you are and be happy or not about it.
did some inorganic chemistry concept maps yesterday and the day before! colour-coded the notes according to the physical properties, chemical properties and comparisons :-) will look at the flashcards later in school!
Idk why I don’t upload studyspo bc ~not to sound conceited but~ I think my notes are pretty cute
During the next 6 days, as I am staying at my parents’ house, I will not use the internet - at all. I will instead spend my time technology-free (no phone either!) and will enjoy time with my mum, my cats and my books. I intend to swap my usual Victorian novels for some French classics, and to drink a lot of tea. I don’t often get to take a week off - there is always usually something to do, work, study, sort out administrative things, be sociable - but this week, I want to feel like a monk: isolated, serious, and happy.
I have a few motivational quotes and posters queued; but I encourage you to give it a try for a couple of days, more if you can: switch off your computer and your phone, pick a few books to keep you company, make sure you have enough tea and coffee, and just cut yourself from the world for a little bit.
See you soon x
