Snapshots | December 16th

It's shocking to me that December is already halfway over - where has all of this time gone? 2015 still feels newborn - but here we are, nearing the ending. And with it comes the dreaded finals. It's exam week for us, and so I have accordingly been cramming for finals and consuming copious amounts of tea - one pursuit of which is far more gratifying than the other, but I'm sure you'll be able to suss that out. ;) I believe exams have not gone too terribly so far, but let us wait and see till the results come back to make the ultimate judgement on that, yes?

Regardless: in two short days exams are over and winter break begins at last! I am planning to spend much of this break writing poetry and wandering around the city with a camera and planning writerly/musical projects and working on Half Mystic (which, by the way, there is a very special announcement regarding that coming soonsoonsoon - keep an eye out!). It is looking to be lovely. I absolutely cannot wait.

In other news: perhaps you will remember my mentioning that I have been considering starting on medication for depression + anxiety. There is an update regarding that: after discussing with my therapist and parents, we have decided to make the leap.

I'm starting on meds a few days into winter break, and currently I have... mixed feelings regarding that. I'm not sure how well I can articulate it at this point - and perhaps I simply need more time to think - but I will be updating you lovelies once it begins, and once I'm able to sort through my thoughts a little more clearly. Thank you so much for all of your support. I think I will need it in the coming days.

How have things been for you, lovelies? I realise I've been rather absent on Six Impossible Things lately, though hopefully winter break will remedy that - but I would love to hear about how the holiday season (+ final exams, for my fellow students) has been treating you.

Do let me know in the comments! I hope things have been sunlit and beautiful in your part of the universe. xx
