"I have the deepest affection for intellectual conversations. The ability to just sit and talk. About love, about life, about anything, about everything.

To speak without regret or fear of consequence. To talk for hours and about what’s really important in life."

Confession: I’ll never get tired of Swan Lake.
Stormy day comtemplations
Rainstorms in Vancouver are commonplace, which is why they are usually un-noteworthy to me. (In fact, they’re incredibly soothing.) But today was different. Today, the sheer force of the wind and rain violently beating against my windowpane caused me to glance up from my enzymology notes in awe.
Try this experiment the next time there’s a storm brewing. Gaze out the window and just marvel at the weather. You’d be surprised at what kinds of thoughts pop into your head…

I’ve spent most of January studying too much biochem, drinking too much tea, and eating too many chocolates.
Stress is at an all-time high, but so is my happiness and my motivation. I’ve never experienced so much uncertainty about the future, but at the same time, it may be the very thing that is pushing me to discover how far I can go…
