Spring is here and it's a mix of scorching sun and relentless wind. It is quite beautiful. I've been told that Falmouth is actually more of a holiday spot for English and I supposed I can see why. It is ridiculously beautiful in spring, after you brave the evils of winter.
I haven't been on this blog all year, it is amusing. It is also sad because years from now I will come back to this space to relive my memories and I will be incredibly disappointed with myself for having lived and not documented a chunk of 2016. It is the sole purpose I blog and write in a diary (which I haven't done all year either, well done Tess) I started this because when I was in secondary school and I wanted to remember something in detail, I'd revisit my diary and be really frustrated when I didn't write something in enough detail. Memories fade and before they fade, we unconsciously alter them to our preference.
Enough about that. I've been doing work, not as much as I'd like but still. I'm now on my last project, which is to do an illustrative book on a topic of choice. At the moment, I think I'm floating around it, not entirely sure how I want to approach it. I have done some pre-sketches and brainstorming but, not enough. I also have an essay that is due next week which I should probably get to at some point this weekend. I've been putting these off to enjoy the weather outside. It's been so good. Yesterday I got tricked into going to Arthur's Cove, which is Falmouth's nude beach. It was exceedingly beautiful. The walk (trek) there was such a stunner even though I did get cut by some very lethal bushes. I was wearing a skirt and was clearly not prepared for this random adventure. Fun, nonetheless.
My term ends in June and I would have finished my first year. It's a little scary to think about actually. I swear the years just pass way faster than they used to. I'm flying home on the 9th of June and will be back in Singapore on the 10th. But then, I'm going to Japan with Ryan on the 12th so that'll be a wild ride. I'm so excited for Japan. As much as I can't wait to go home and then go to Japan, I really don't want my first year to end. Will the magic wear out after my first year??
