4.24.17 // 11:15am // the end is nigh….

so i have my last linear midterm (and last midterm of the year) in T-2.5 hours, so i decided to decorate a little quote to celebrate. i suppose this is a little premature, since i have 3 finals next week but eh. not that it’s very obscure, but brownie points to you if you know where the quote is from! :D -m

90/100

I got these amazing weekly layout sheets from @tchnologic’s tumblr and I can’t wait to start using them next week as part of my exam count down. I wrote two more essays today and handed in a grand total of 8 to my philosophy teacher who wasn’t best pleased to say the least 😂

6/100 [4.24.17] ~ 🎶 Miro - ROMEO

My body is probably gonna be sore tomorrow if I don’t stop dancing ‘Boy Meets Evil’. I’m already done with the intro which took 3 DAYS. I just started listening to ROMEO and it really makes me mad that they’re underrated 😭😭

I’m making some kpop lockscreens so please tell me what songs/artist you would want (I already made: Not Today, Save Me, Palette, Spring Day, I Am the Best, and Yoongi’s mixtape)

ID #67479

Name: Mary
Age: 17 (18 in October)
Country: Russia

.Since my attempt to find penpals for the first time was not successful, I am writing this post again.
Let’s begin. I’m a high school student, this year I’m finishing it. I’m interested in music. I’m a music lover, I can listen to anything if it really pleases me. I have no restrictions in the genres, although there are those songs of which I listen most often.
Literature also attracts me. I’ll be glad if you advise me to read books that impressed you, which are your favourite.
I’m fond of atmospheric photography, but I’m not a photographer myself. I especially like black-and-white photographs , dark photos of nature, streets, buildings. In general, I like photos which are slightly depressive, melancholic, sad, mysterious.
I don’t mind modern art, which can be a little sweet, with a bigger set of bright colors than dark ones. If it really looks cool and doesn’t spoil it, then why not?
I’d like to travel and the country I would like to get to the most is Japan. I love this country and everything connected with it, but it’s not just anime and cosplay.
Moreover, I like creativity. Recently, I began to be keen on such a direction as decadence. I think that this direction is close to me with its gloominess, aestheticism, individualism.
I’d also like to add that I open up more in the process of communication when I discuss something with my interlocutor, express my point of view, share something.
So, I’m finishing my long story.
I’m looking for a penpal because I’d like to meet new people from different countries, expand my horizons. I think it’s interesting and exciting, it makes us feel not alone.

Preferences: People from 16 to 23. I do not care about your gender, orientation and etc.

• 100 Days of Productivity - Day 15/100 •

A peek at my messy to-do list for finals week. I’ve got so much to do for each class, and my first final is in TWENTY MINUTES OH GOD. Anyway, used a couple of my faux polaroids to brighten up the messy spread and I’m definitely in love with them ❣️☀️

My ALMOST one study year in Moscow so far. I’m starting to slowly fall in love with this beautiful city. I love my university, my friends and everything here. Sorry for being inactive for several months here. Had some studyblr productive non-tumblr vibes, you know.
If you’re interesting:
• I started bullet journaling (if this word is correct)
• did my course work (and other uni stuff)
• Met sooo many interesting people
• Started learning some foreign languages on my own
• Visited Dominican Republic
• Volunteered at MGIMO Business Spring (actually, very cool event)
• found my soulmate a.k.a. my best friend
• learnt how to cook
Actually, everything has been very productive and nice
The only problem is that I miss my hometown & parents. Hoping to go there on holidays.
If you are reading this, tell me what your study year was like
