Hello, I'm at Otto's place, taking a break from studying with some internetting. I thought I'd just say hi and update you on what's happened/been on my mind lately:
▸ I had my first lecture for this semester yesterday, in cognitive science of religion, and I walked out of it with a full blown existential crisis. I've never believed in anything supernatural (apart from trolls and the skogsrå, when I was a kid - yes, I know, so very Swedish), and I've been calling myself an atheist for the last few years. But as university has made me realise how fragile and indefinite 'science' is, it leaves me in a deep sea of uncertainty. It's nice and exciting, but it's also quite tiring to question everything. And when I say everything, I really do mean everything. Also, that I'm currently reading Nausea by Sartre is not making it any better...
▸ I received my marks from last semester and somehow managed to get A's on everything?? Wtf, how did that happen?? Now I just need to keep on going for one more semester and then I'll have my first? As I barely managed to get through high school, it feels like the weirdest thing. Good, but weird.
▸ The whole not eating meat-thing that Otto and I have going on has surprisingly made me into a person who enjoys cooking? Me, who's go-to food is a bowl of muesli? I'm so excited to try new things that instead of procrastinating with videos of funny animals, I'm now searching internet for recipes. So if you have any good recipes, let me know!!
▸ A couple of days ago I woke up to a bunch of texts that Otto had been sending me in the middle of the night. It was a monologue about this film he'd watched, and how great it was. Yesterday I watched it too, and it's painfully beautiful. It's called Tabu, and if you (like me) have a soft spot for black and white and perfect light, you need to watch it. I promise that you'll love it.
Okay, now I need to get back to work. Hope life is treating you well, and talk to you soon!
