It's almost April, somehow. This year feels surreal, but for all the wrong reasons. In the words of my university, the current situation is dynamic and rapidly changing.

Hello everyone! It's been a while. I hope you're all well and staying healthy. As for me, I'm finally reaching the end of a 3 month winter break, the result of extensions due to the coronavirus.

Packing At the time of writing, I have begun to pack. It's not a tedious thing at all, and I still have plenty of time with not much to fill it with, so I thought, why not? Actually, in all honesty, I've been sitting around, restless with the thought of packing. I refuse to be… Continue reading [Thoughts] 17 days before I go to S. Korea
Continuing from my last post, I'll be chatting a bit about what my boyfriend and I got up to in London last month!
