types of academia pt. 2
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
art: paint dried at the cuffs of your favorite jacket, ink smudged hands, your notebooks are just sketchbooks for your class doodles with notes crammed in between the drawings, sudden revelations, wanting to create something meaningful with your own two hands, thinking of pygmalion during your sculpting class, reading a book and coming across that one sentence that sparks the inspiration for your next piece, afternoons on a soft green hill sketching, the scent of jasmine on the breeze, the music blaring in your headphones is all you can hear or feel as you work through the night, laying under the starlight
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
writer: the sound of a pen against parchment, the glow of a computer screen in a dark room, the sound of a clock ticking away the hours, reading with a hunger that will only be satisfied once you can give shape to your own words, empty notebooks, notebooks full of poetry, forgotten ideas that were not written down, your notes app is full of poetry, rainy days full of time spent typing away, living every experience in its rawest fork because you know you can write about it later, “write what you know” so you try to know everything, dreaming through your characters eyes, you and the moon have become good friends after nights spent writing under her light and reading your prose out loud
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
romantic: sketches of your love in a sketchbook that’s falling apart, singing to the moon at night, reciting sonnets alone in the woods, linen and silk, bathed in golden light, wax seals on love letters, pressed flowers in a journal, wanting to catch the stars and put them in the eyes of the one you love, the sweet scent of roses, ivy crawling up a cobblestone wall, a garden full of statues and plants that flint silver in the moonlight, sweet milk tea, daydreaming in a meadow
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
sci-fi: stargazing is a personality trait, deteriorating copies of sci-fu novels, coffee stained science magazines, a cork board full of conspiracies, squinting at the sky in search of life, believing there’s something more, tangled headphones, leather-bound dream journal, fog filled nights, psychoanalyzing, sticky note with the names of different theories scribbled on it that you need to research later, scrolling through wikipedia pages under your blanket when you should be sleeping, walkie talkies, a head full of wonder
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
urban: city lights blazing like stars, briskly walking down streets through the crisp air, drizzle fogging your glasses, hands in the pockets of a frayed coat, the overt dichotomy of light and dark, shadows in alleys and buzzing neon signs, dim bars and lit apartment windows, a small book shop crammed between a starbucks and bank, going to a vintage movie theater at the center of the city, mornings spent at the museum that’s free before noon, nights snuggled up in a blanket in your small, overpriced apartment as you read a book near the window and watch the city breathe

I’m literally obsessed with my new desk- I got it secondhand and the builders’ label marks it as having been built in may of 1944, only a 30 minute drive from my house. The former owners said they think it was build for a womens’ college in my city!

gentle reminder for the class + validation for my fellow Black girls into this aesthetic:
Jazz is an equally important and influential genre of music as classical. I believe it deserves similar honor, respect, and visibility within this aesthetic and noted for its genesis with and connection to Black Americans.
Enjoy this beautifully curated playlist!
Fun fact: this is actually how I learned of the phrase/"aesthetic" of dark academia, not through Tumblr at all. This playlist inspired me to search this hashtag, though, and here we are...

I really do miss wandering around the city and finding a new store or restaurant. I miss the loud construction noises that would annoy me. I miss the silence that came when you went into a less busy street but you knew if you step out of that street, all the people and noise will be back. I miss seeing so many people just walking with so much motivation to wherever they need to go. I miss the commute, where I got to listen to my music and just turn my brain off for a few minutes or for almost an hour. I miss walking around the city and realizing the season changed and the new holiday decorations are being put up. I miss existing and feeling a part of a community without even talking to any of them. I miss it.

It may not be Christmas. It may not be Diwali. But you still remind me of winter days, spent in cozy jackets and making sweets and giving smiles and eating art and sipping tea and reading books and writing poetry and taking photos and organising notes.
“A letter to the fairy lights that dangle from my window.”
