ive been home since Tuesday and it has been a hectic few days meeting up with people. i barely had time for myself so it’s nice to spend a chill Sunday home. home has changed so much. the air sucks and i’m having a constant allergy reaction.

Thursday. Aachen. Tired.

i have an exam tomorrow and it’s my first one since forever. im doing a subject that could be loosely translated to “Measurement Technology” where we basically study about measuring things. it’s a huge pain in the ass but is pretty doable even with my meagre German because we are allowed to bring in a cheat sheet. i might still fuck things up but hey, it might be a great welcome/warm up back to the academics life. im pretty tired so i thought of doing some light reading before heading to bed early tonight. having marijuana tea (no THC content though) to calm myself down; definitely enjoying the night

so some DNA tests wrecked havoc in a family. i would do a test like that to know more about my ancestry back in China but i guess it’s a little hard for now as these technologies aren’t as well-developed and things may not be as extensively recorded in Asia???

Wednesday. Aachen, it’s getting warmer

i have an exam on friday and i haven’t written an official exam in about 28 months…also, it’s the second day of Chinese New Year but that doesn’t apply to me this year and my sprained left foot hasn’t healed 100% yet and it still hurts a little at times. yesterday my right heel started bleeding. so yeah, i have a very awkward gait now. i love my life.
