following in the footsteps of @soap-stones,@phdiariesand@peer–reviewed, i created a new blog, @delfi-nium.

i’m weeks away from submitting my thesis, in a completely different place (both physically and mentally) than when i created this blog (originally called delthenerd, for the ogs), and have not really felt connected to this piece of media in a while.

@delfi-nium will not be school-focused, but will still be the same : a collection of thoughts, snapshots of my life, and some feelings. i’ll still be posting on here until i finish my thesis, so don’t expect a complete disappearance act on my part!

first time since the start of the pandemic that i’ve wandered out of the neighborhood by public transit (scary). the university’s library is allowing pick ups, and i need books for my thesis. heard from some fellow students that the system is all over the place and that orders get messed up constantly. will report back.

last night i told my boyfriend i was going to make myself eggs for breakfast and i woke up to a breakfast sandwich and freshly brewed coffee we’re in for a good day

i’ve been living in my own little world of plant buying, home decorating, couch shopping, ice coffee drinking and thesis writing, and i have to say, i’ve never felt more at peace with myself…

i’m in desperate need of some good spotify playlist recs
