project 365: 040-046
040 After my 9am lecture I spent a few hours in the city centre browsing. I wasn't actually aimlessly browsing, but had a few things that I'd looked up online and wanted to check out in person and am still contemplating to buy. I also went to the Kirkgate market to buy some flowers. I've finally decided to become one of those people who buy themselves flowers. Also, this lovely lady saw me taking photos at the market, first merely mentioning that the market is beautiful, to which I agreed. She then continued to walk past me, but turned back and told me that if I go upstairs I'd probably be able to take even more pretty shots. That was so lovely, and I'm going to go back to do just that as soon as I feel like I have the time!
041 My mum sent me some sweets for Valentine's Day. The dark chocolate with apple, brittle and hazelnut was delicious. And obviously she sent me some Moomin cards!
042 Actually hate this building. It's an absolute maze, but once you've found your way to wherever you were supposed to go you don't feel happy or rewarded, you're just late and annoyed. I can understand someone designing this and being allowed to have it built, but I'm also pretty sure it's received some sort of a design award which is just beyond me. The Roger Stevens building, ladies and gentlemen. It won't be missed after I leave uni.
043 The latest damage I've caused upon my poor body. It's not even funny how easily I bruise these days..
044 These are the wee tulips I bought on Monday. I've already thrown them away, but I really like seeing flowers go through all of their stages from a wee bud to being so hideous even I need to take them out of my room. I think it's in 19th-century still life paintings that often had really plentiful flowers in rich colours, but once you'd look at them closer at least some of them would be dying. And I like that.
045 What I'm reading at the moment!
046 A good/sad (whichever way you want to see it) day of le internet. And pretending to read some more, but didn't really make any progress now, did I?
I feel like this has been a bit of a rambly post, but what you gonna do. It also feels as if these are the only kinds of posts I've written lately and I'll try to get some other content up soon as well, haha. I'm genuinely so busy with uni, but as I'm about to start majorly procrastinating I'm sure you'll be seeing me quite as much as you normally would. If not more. I'll catch you later and hope you're having a wonderful start to the week!
