#punk academia

Lately, I have been strangely nostalgic (for me) and thinking a lot about how I got to where I am today. So much has had to happen in just the right way. I remember when I first watched this video I had just graduated high school, and I was blown away by the fact that the shear power we have to change our world can be seen even from space. I also remember how I was -and still am- so excited to delve into my academic career and figure out how to be a part of the conversation to help mitigate these problems, and since I started university in 2013 I have learned how much deeper all of these issues go. and how much worse they have gotten. These issues are beyond deforestation, smog, and suburbs. These issues include poverty, racism, global insecurity, and war, in the most bleakest of meanings, that will affect us all indiscriminately. I have used this video in presentations of mine just to give the viewer an idea of how we are able to mold our world as if it were clay. We have so much potential in our hands to create change for the better and most of us act like we can’t even see the damage or we are convinced we are disempowered before we even try to use it. Keep in mind that this is from almost 8 years ago.

You’ve seen me talk about Mythos Academia, now I raise you-

Space Academia

  • Stargazing on the roof, checking what stars and constellations you’re seeing
  • Learning the myths of Chang’e, Selene, Artemis and the rabbit on the moon, along with anything you can find about its mysterious glow
  • Dreaming of planets and life beyond this world- so much knowledge to seek out…
  • Not fully believing in astrology, but finding it deeply fascinating

  • Staying up deep into the night, the moonlight greeting you at the edge of your bed
  • Having an innate sense that we are not alone in this universe
  • Reading everything you can about conspiracy theories relating to extraterrestrials
  • Yearning for the moon and learning its effect on everything, including people

I rarely post any pictures of myself on here but since isolation, covid and uni have me sitting at home, enjoy me fucking around with my aesthetic, think it gives me punk academia/ bibliopunk vibes

(please don’t judge my shaved sides yes I know I need to fix them I’m just lazy)

“Words! Mere words! How terrible they were! How clear, and vivid, and cruel. One could not escape from them. And yet what a subtle magic there was in them!” -Oscar Wilde

Words


Words are weird

Symbols strewn together

Words are truths, lies, stories, hope, fame, love, fears…

You get the idea

Sometimes I struggle through them

Sometimes I triumph

No matter what, I’ll try to share them

Autumn


The leaves fall

The earth is dying

Why else would we call it fall


But that is a small description

A season much more than what leaves do

Much more than what happens to the earth


A chill flowing through cloudy skies

Brown and gold leaves drifting in the wind

Tousled hair in knit caps


Red noses and breathy laughter

Frozen ankles and cuffed jeans

Sweaters with sleeves pulled down to warm your hands


Cider

Coffee

Hot Coco


I could go on and on and on

I could tell of what new comes as the world dies

There are stories to share, both old and new


But I won’t

I’ll save that for you to figure out

A season of transition, one you must experience

Hey y’all if any of you ever take any of my music reccomendations, listen to David Keenan.

His music is absolutely amazing. He is a bit like Hozier but Irish lol.

Seriously, check out his music. It’s beautiful.
