Updates from a Balcony

Hi all! Just would like to post a short update and a sort of train of thought at this moment now that my brain is now pretty much on full gear after doing my morning pages in my journal. Uni has been really great so far with all the fun discussions and brainstorming in class. Of course, class readings are really stacking up but I feel like I’m relatively on top of things which is quite the improvement because consistency and effort have been the two most challenging habits to maintain for me.
