Re-reading a favorite
I feel like everyone are emotionally drained nowadays because of everything going on, so I haven’t been in the right mindset to start any new books. I decided to go for something that gives me comfort, books based on one of my favorite video game series, Dragon Age. The public’s reception of the book was kind of average, it wasn’t the best but it also wasn’t the worst. I really like it because it gives more backstory for Cole, a companion from the third game, he is one of my favorites. He is a spirit who has taken over the body of someone who died in the White Spire, and in the novel we get to know how and why it happened.
Drying flowers for DIYs
A few months ago I invested in buying rose and lavender plants, and since then I’ve been collecting rose petals and lavender flower buds as they dry out for later use. When I get enough lavender buds, I could turn it into a lavender pouch to put either in my pillow or a drawer of clothes to make them smell better and I’m really excited about that. The rose petals I could use to make rose water or something, I haven’t really decided on what to do with them yet.
Student accommodation update
This week I visited the city my university is located in to look at a new place to stay. I have previously contacted my university directly about accommodation but they only prioritize first year students and/or people younger than 22, which I am neither of them. I realized I can’t just rely on waiting for them to find a place to stay for me so I inquired online about it and was invited to a viewing of one on Friday the 2nd.
The viewing went well, and I’ll be informed if I get the room or not by Wednesday, so I’m crossing my fingers! While I was down there I visited my friend who I spent the most time with in York, and we had a very typical “white people taco night” with tacos and gaming. It was really nice to see her again, we haven’t been able to hang out after we got home from England since we were both in quarantine and whatnot.
Apart from this, the past weeks have been quite uneventful. It’s all just a waiting game now. Waiting for a new place to live, waiting for uni to start up again, waiting for student funding, waiting for a job. It’s not the most fun thing in the world.
