it rained the whole day.
i cleaned up my place a little bit. only a little bit, and it felt like there was so much more space for air to come in. lighter, lighter…
when i first listened to ‘a sky full of stars’ and gave ‘ghost stories’ a try, i thought it was nice but i didn’t pay much attention. about two days ago (?), Phanxine shared ‘true love’ mv, which made me interested again when a YouTube user described it as “for people who don’t fit in”. then i came back and listened again, and i felt it more. the instruments, the sounds, the lyrics, the voice… everything brought back my emotions of the first time hearing Coldplay, as if floating in gentle waves of an ocean of air – if it makes any sense. i like the way it makes me feel certain feels.
‘Cause you’re a sky, ’cause you’re a sky full of stars
‘Cause you light up the path
‘Cause in a sky, ’cause in a sky full of stars
I think I saw you
‘Cause you get lighter the more it gets dark
I’m gonna give you my heart
‘Cause you’re a sky, you’re a sky full of stars
Such a heavenly view
You’re such a heavenly view
Jussi’s status announcing Lärkkulla’s new webpage reminded me that a new school year has come again to that small and dear place. i can’t believe 2 years have passed. only yesterday i came to visit the place, there were tiny little purple and white flowers on the green grass in front of the Dining Hall, we ate chicken and rice and i was surprised i didn’t have to pay and Jussi said something about ‘similar Asian food here’, he introduced me the room in the far corner of the first floor, and i remember going around and called Truc “hey, i think i’m going to move”… i was exhausted when i came back to Full House, but determined to go. i had no regret. not one bit, not at all. it was that far back…
another rejection email. cooking with the light on since it was dark outside after a long while. anxious. read and be inspired. finished translating another episode. “don’t let the negativity leak in”.
