It’s the final quartile of the year so I reckon some are approaching their graduation while others are getting a year closer to it. Kudos! And as is usual, a closure brings an opportunity for sincere reflection. This time, it may be a purely academic look-back for some, whereas some others may prefer a more wholesome contemplation. It’s at such times, though, that I resume wrestling with my mediocrity and wonder if it’s similar for everyone else.
Truth be told, the Dutch language doesn’t exactly rank among the most useful ones. Being spoken in a tiny corner of Europe and some remote specks of land elsewhere coupled with the natives’ fluent English are enough reasons to never learn it.

I’m studying in the Sustainable Energy Technology program but secretly aspire to be a chemist. The soothing voices of Robert Plant and Layne Staley form the background of most of my thoughts. I tend to passionately talk like a textbook every now and then and more than anything else, I try to read about everything and often pretend to know enough about them. At the onset, it must be said that I celebrate being somewhat whimsical and here at Cursor, I would try to share some of those impulses.
