Gǫod morning cruəl, swēet wǫrld



  • I am thinking a lot about navigation; about whether it is possible to lead relationships without them being socialized (even within yourself). Alternatively, whether it is possible to lead a life as fully and peacefully within yourself as possible; without considering what other people think about you too much. I find the purity of navigating through something uncertain scary and important and rare and am trying to give myself space to be and act intuitively rather than to think about being. Some things feel so strange and so close to approaching purity it's as if touching hot coal or molten glass.

I remember finding asymptotes really visually beautiful. I find it quite sensitive that something can be forever approaching infinity without ever touching it! Very fragile, the space between so liminal. But then also incredibly stable. Forever infinity! Somehow this relates to my wish to be without thinking about being too much. Maintaining the distance between 0 and nearly zero is the trick.



  • In our first prototyping class (21-09-21), we went through an exercise of listing our tools as well as listing the tools we would like to pick up. I really liked what I wrote down and thought it was great to synthesize my wishes in a list that felt like it made a lot of sense to who I was as a person and who I wanted to grow into. I'm leaving this here to remind myself!
