inferno, work and stress ~ Victoria

It’s been a while since either Val or I have posted so here’s a life update from me. It’s about week 4 into Epiphany term now and it genuinely feels like the term should be ending soon simply because I have been under so, so much stress since the start of the term. Alas there’s like…

breakup reflections ~ Valerie

We broke up on Nov 4, our 1-year anniversary. Kind of a sad funny joke because it also happened right after the military ball, the same event we’d gone to on Nov 4 a year before, during which we’d decided we were going to make things official. It didn’t seem funny at ALL at the…

overwhelmed, but i’m content ~ Victoria

so much has happened the past few weeks and throughout this term. i hit the ground running when this year started – i’ve been so happy, then so upset, conflicted, then happy but conflicted, and stressed and just an overwhelming pot of emotions. i’ve already explained the stress and where that’s coming from but the…

second year stress ~ Victoria

Val’s just posted and it made me miss blogging and writing about my feelings and days so I decided to write one as well. The dry spell has been broken yay!!!!! Also I needed to get my writing skills working again because I have plans to spit out an essay within today (it is already…

a rainbow after the storm ~ Valerie

today I went up to the stacks to be alone and get some work done, and i found this gem i went over and sat at the desk and was about to start reading, but then i leaned forward and noticed all the writing on the front wall i’d been going through a really rough…

guess what! ~ Victoria

OKAY SO. Guess what I realised? WRONG. I realised I haven’t written a post with KPOP song recs since last year!! (around this time too!) So I’m going to write one. Don’t stop reading I will SLIT YOUR THROAT. My baes are still GOT7  because they are the OG, but I have found new baes…

hong kong for 3 months ~ Valerie

I’m on a plane to New York right now and I’ve been trying to write a blog post for over an hour but I’ve made zero progress. I’m trying to pinpoint the reason why I’m so sad about leaving Hong Kong and I’m not doing very well, so this post is going to be a…

learning how to fail ~ Victoria

I’m thinking about what I’m going to write for this post and I realised that a lot of my posts on this blog is more personal and more about myself while Val’s is a lot about what’s happening in her life and more intellectual things. I’m just a lot more inclined to share about how…

first half of my summer internship ~ Valerie

It’s been a month and a half since I started interning at HELP for Domestic Workers, so I thought it was about time to do a recap of everything that’s happened since (spoiler: a fuck ton). Just a brief introduction—HELP stands for help, empowerment, and legal protection. The organization provides legal assistance and advice to domestic…

final fresher days: my room ~ Victoria

It’s hit me today as I went around town with Rachel to steal boxes from Tesco to pack things in that first year is basically nearing its end, and I am freaking out at how quickly time has passed. How am I already a Uni student for a year and how did I even manage…

post-exams post + other things ~ Victoria

This is slightly overdue because exams ended like almost 4 weeks ago but it’s fine I’m going to recap on things! (end of exams to June 2nd) I mean I guess I should kinda go on a bit about the last exam and how I ended up celebrating it. Last exam went absolute shit It…
