寒露

Cold dew. I have quite a few issues with the way some of my online classes are running, but for the most part they’ve been okay. Passable. Hopefully I pass those classes, too. Let’s see… it’s been a month now, and things are settling (microscopically), but the world seems as chaotic as always. Didn’t expect … [continue]

秋分

Autumnal Equinox. School has started, and despite not going there physically, I’m still feeling extremely stressed. There’s so much work… it almost feels like high school again, except this time I have to do my homework. It’s for marks. Anyway, I noticed that recently I’ve been pretty much exclusively watching things that are crime-related. I … [continue]

白露

White dew. Self-explanatory. I went back to school (it’s online, but here I am). Hopefully everything will slowly reset and I won’t feel like I’ve made a massive mistake. Maybe it’s something I just have to wait out, which sucks because I hate waiting and I hate time. Sure, it heals all, but can it … [continue]

处暑

Limit of heat. … I’m a little late this time, but I guess it doesn’t really matter. I’m pretty much all set for this coming semester in all ways except emotional. I’m always like this, though. This summer is quickly coming to an end. It really has felt just like one super long week, with … [continue]

立秋

Beginning of autumn. It was pretty hot the last few weeks, so I guess it’s more like the Height of Summer. I don’t quite have a thought lined up for this post… hmm… It’s almost time for school again, which I’m not looking forward to. Online classes aren’t great because I’m more likely to procrastinate. … [continue]

大暑

Major heat. It has actually been quite hot the past week, which is nice. I don’t think I did much either… I enrolled in my courses for the next year. Amazing how I’m already going to be entering my third year. I really didn’t expect to make it this far. I spent a good amount … [continue]

小暑

Minor heat. We’ve reached the halfway point (and a bit more) of this year. What an amazing thing, to have completed half a revolution amidst all this chaos. It was my birthday last week. I barely remember what I did, but honestly, that’s good. That means not much happened. At this point, if nothing happens, … [continue]

夏至

Summer solstice. Another good time of year (the time around my birthday). Midsummer, summer solstice, whatever. Summer used to hold very hopeful and somewhat romantic notions for me, but over time I got over it. I came to the conclusion that it was the same as every other day of every other month of every … [continue]

芒种

Grain in ear. One would imagine that there’s more time for introspection now that we’re still mostly residing at home, but honestly, the constant barrage of distractions and disasters make it difficult to find time to just sit there and zone out. I find that to be a welcoming thing, actually. I’ve spent a fair … [continue]

小满

Lesser fullness… of grain… Here’s a tiny portrait of my brother. He’s stuck to me almost 24/7 and he’s a very warm child. He also constantly is excited and full of energy and the Zest for Being Alive. Of course, he’s got the occasional moments of downtime, but overall, he seems overly pure and smart. … [continue]
