Some of these links/segments don't quite fit into the rest of the site's pages, others I haven't reviewed enough. Either way, they're all waiting here for now...

Memories

2020-08-21: "I should get back to working on my website. I still don't know how to balance minimalism, elegance, and practicality with creativity, fun, and adventure when designing it. I value both too much!" (from my diary)

Grandparents

2022-10-28: "I just arrived at my grandparents' home after a very long road trip with my dad. My visits here are quite pleasant! This is mostly because the room I stay in hasn't been changed in any way for ages and therefore feels haunted by the spirit of a 90s teenage girl. It also hosts paintings created by 3 different generations of my family, and the air conditioner isn't completely broken like my room back at home. Both nice bonuses! ^_^" (Source)

2022-08-05: "I've just arrived at my grandparent's home, after a long road trip with my dad and my older brother. On the way, we got caught in one of the more intense rain-storms I've experienced in my life. The radio was tuned to a classical music channel, and the song that was on was "The Sea" by Frank Bridge. I swear, this was synced up to the whole experience :D" (Source)
