Over the past weeks, I’ve been at a wedding, done a lot of work and realized how my thesis has improved many skills.
The wedding reception was amazing. One of my best friends, Daniel brought his wife over from Japan to hold a small wedding reception for friends and family. I love this guy so much, and I couldn’t wish for a more beautiful reception than the one we attended. We all cooked together and hung out like no time had passed since the last time we met. It was amazing, and he really found himself a great gal.
Algae work has been alright, there’s always a lot to do and a lot to learn. I love it, but the longer I do this, the more anxious I get. I feel like I want to stop time, so that I can enjoy this a little more, a little longer because I don’t know if I can apply/get a PhD. I know, there’s a lot of people cheering for me and I think of your words every day. It helps me think of other things, to live in the present instead of worrying too much about the future. The present is here to prepare us for the future, right? :)
For my online course, I have to write an essay about ocean warming, its threats and potentials (is there any?). So I did a quick literature search and found myself browsing through all of them within ten minutes and still get a hold of the relevant reports I can cite. My thesis has already improved my speed reading. I knew it would happen, but not so fast.
I’ve listened to Ed Sheeran’s Photograph all day. I don’t know why, but it just stuck with me.
I found myself thinking of you again. I still remember how it feels to hold your hands, to kiss your cheeks, how to make you laugh, how to you used to scold me. It makes me cry of various reasons. I’d love to do all those things again, I really do, but that era has ended and I can only cherish the memories I have of you. At least I got old enough to remember your grace and your wisdom. I wish the pain would go away, but today it’s overwhelming and I miss you dearly. Both of you.
