dubai, madam

i am in search for an inspiration. i need a new design, new ideas for my bedroom and new photography for art journaling. so far this year i haven’t really done a proper piece. most of today was spent reflecting on vietnam and surprisingly on dubai, especially since i discovered amazing photography by petrina tinslay. if you have a moment, take a look. i miss dubai. i miss the city, which i hardly even know because it’s a work in progress. nothing is finished there yet. it would be great to be able to go back one day.

i spend most of my time reading, writing, studying and listening to videos on the academic earth. examinations are coming up in may, including chinese, which i fear the most. i have only started chinese classes two months ago and i am nowhere near the ability to sit for any kind of test. thoughts occupy my mind, dreams and plans pile up as i search for ideal universities but each day ends with a reminder that there is a long journey ahead of me.

winter is still not entirely over in hong kong. walking around the streets is enjoyable more than ever.
