Weeknote #1

MAY 01, 2016

Week one of what? I’ve had a blog before. I started it mainly because I was excited about creating a Wordpress theme and abandoned it soon afterwards. Still, sometimes I wish I had a place to post a note that exceeds 140 characters. This thing might become such a place or be abandoned soon, too. The format is inspired by precious.

Stephan and me are busy working on our bachelor project. It’s an exciting time for me — excitement to get to devote four months to a project while constantly worrying if everything is going to work out just fine. Are we working too slow, too fast, on the right things? It will be fine.

On another note, I’m currently reading The Art of Travel. It is not a book telling you where to travel to, but looks at why we really wanted to go there in the first place — travel philosophy. Here’s a (quite insignificant) paragraph about flying:

Food that, if sampled in a kitchen, would have been banal or even offensive, aquires a new taste in the presence of the clouds (like a picnic of bread and cheese that delights us when eaten on a cliff-top above a pounding sea). With the inflight tray, we make ourselves at home in this unhomely place: we appropriate the extraterrestrial landscape with the help of a chilled bread roll and a pastic tray of potato salad.

I enjoyed writing this.
