Saturday. at a farewell party in Aachen

so i started a reading party at a party. i had an audience of 1 but 50% was gone after the second article. it was quite nice. might wanna do this more often

READ

signs that we are sleeping too much. probably not very applicable to students/working class

some smart animals who seem to be smarter than humans in a very specific way. this was interesting as we all analysed the piece at the end and all concluded that the article started well but escalated pretty quickly from the midpoint onwards. so we suggest that you stop reading after the octopus part

the story of the once best American female cyclist being homeless. 

read this alone while waiting for the party to be over so i could clean up and go home, why flights seem to always be “early” now

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

all the reasons to write. really. great list

why people ghost. doesn’t answer my questions but i think im pretty much over my own issues¬†

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???
