a first jump into writing regularly! woohoo
hi internet, i'm sharvani and i like space.
i haven't been writing at all lately, so i'm using urspace's 14 day blog challenge as a way to jumpstart my familiarity with the english language so i can get back to my usual articulate (or even cohesive) self.
college has been a busy time. i threw myself into a couple of activities and never really budgeted time to take a breather. thus, once i got to college i stopped writing entirely - even the most basic journaling has been at a standstill. as the frequency and amount of writing i was doing decreased, however, both metrics increased sharply for another activity i had previously only done occasionally: making spotify playlists.
case in point: over the last twelve weeks, i've made twenty playlists. each has a specifically chosen artwork and its own description.
it's an interesting shift to switch from using full sentences / short paragraphs to debrief on my college experience to certain pairings of songs with specific artwork, but it hasn't been too bad. it also saves time - whenever i journal, i need to write things out by hand and that can take a while. if i'm getting back into writing, however, it'll be interesting to see whether i can keep it up, especially given that ucla will be providing remote instruction through the end of the quarter. i'd be interested in seeing whether i change how i split my time between playlists and writing, especially if i'm going to be home for an extended period of time.
it'll be interesting to see how my feelings regarding social distancing (especially in the context of my organizations) change as spring quarter begins. i do know, however, that there is a 99.99% chance i will be making a playlist called 'i kind of maybe sort of miss my friends'. no amount of writing will put that one off.
happy (early) sunday. good night!
