     I have not always been as now—
The fever’d diadem on my brow
I claim’d and won surprisingly—
Ay—the same heritage hath given
Rome to the Caesar—this to me;
- Edgar Allan Poe

There's something magical about buying preloved books, moreover when it's classic lit. Like suddenly, you don't mind the crease on the pages anymore. You're reading through words or sentences that fascinated the previous owner, seeing a glimpse of them in it. It's just... beautiful.

Let me get to know you through the worlds you travel and who knows, I’ll find you in the middle of your travels, in a perfect rhyme and even in a less unlikely ending or maybe bump into a museum where both of you are deciphering one painting and in a thousandth of a second my gaze meets yours and we understand the true meaning of art ✨📜🧳🤍

LISTENING TO: Saint Bernard 2 by Lincoln READING: Beartown by Fredrik Backman
DAILY TALK: I think I’m coming down with a cold (high percentage it’s just newly developed seasonal allergies) which sucks as I’m coming near exams as well. The cause of the cold? Most likely me being brainless while standing outside in the bleak Canadian weather. I’m starting this challenge with out any particular reason, mainly because I’m bored, but I believe this will serve me good motivation. This morning wasn’t very productive, my cat fell asleep on my chinese textbook which I didn’t want to disturb her.
TODAYS TASKS: I emailed my teachers for mini conferences about exam reviews. I also was able to finish my chinese hw as well. Today I started class 2 of an edX Comparative Equality and Anti-Discrimination law course, and during that I brewed some 大红袍 (da hong pao or big red robe) tea. 
FUTURE TASKS: Create props for a school video, brainstorm new writing ideas, choose a topic to write a paragraph in French.

"Science, I believe, is a passionate search for always newer ways to conceive the world. Its strength lies not in the certainties it reaches but in a radical awareness of the vastness of our ignorance. This awareness allows us to keep questioning our own knowledge, and, thus, to continue learning. Therefore the scientific quest for knowledge is not nourished by certainty, it is nourished by a radical lack of certainty."
-Carlo Rovelli, The First Scientist: Anaximander and His Legacy

homeric epithets have my heart.
rosy-fingered dawns and wine-dark seas. bronze-armoured achaeans on sea-cleaving ships advancing towards the many-towered troy. the swift-footed achilles, great-hearted patroculus, flaming-haired menelaus. and don't forget the divinely-named gods; the cloud-gatherer zeus, ox-eyed athena, earth-shaking poseidon, silver-footed thetis, mercury-swift iris, soft-cheeked aphrodite.
to me, these words will always be long-shadowed and sweet-savored.
