learn lots, be keen
Hello everyone! Hope you're well. I'm back at school for the summer semester studying video games & themes in art. Right about now, I'm really wishing I were outside, enjoying the sunshine. Ah well. For now, let's revisit this prose poem from last year. (Hopefully I can make something like this again when the semester wraps up!)
quote of the moment
“Belonging is the innate human desire to be part of something larger than us. Because this yearning is so primal, we often try to acquire it by fitting in and by seeking approval, which are not only hollow substitutes for belonging, but often barriers to it. Because true belonging only happens when we present our authentic, imperfect selves to the world, our sense of belonging can never be greater than our level of self-acceptance.”
- Brené Brown
Reading: More Than This by Patrick Ness
Listening: Oh My Days [album] - Jessica Barbour
