Lucky Number 13 pt. III

I've never really been one for superstitions. The saying that certain things—broken mirror, stepping on a crack, walking under a ladder, spilling salt—bring you bad luck has always been more like a challenge for me. But there's something about Friday the 13th that gets me excited sometimes. Personal history tells of how lucky I often get on this day. It's been proven wrong a lot of the time too, of course, but the idea that it might bring me lots of happiness gets me excited whenever I realise it's coming soon. Yesterday was sort of like that, especially with no pressing assignment to worry about. Midterm is coming close, though, so I'll have to really hustle on that front. Aside from that, I don't think there's a lot to update, except maybe that I've moved on to a different book from last week and caught up with a few Japanese animated series. Also, I've been slightly more active on my art instagram this week, feel free to check it out if you want to read a series of mini comics I uploaded. What have you been doing this week?

One of the things I miss most about living in Germany is having greeneries all around. No matter where I lived, there was always usually a huge park somewhere in town—one of which was located just at the back of my apartment building. It's always been a great way for me to relax and unwind, just be with nature and forget the hustle and bustle of the city. Unfortunately, in Jakarta, that is not very easy to find. Even if there is one, it is usually not big enough to really explore—and/or smells terrible and/or feels significantly shady. What's worse is that most these places are nowhere near walking distance from my house—a huge culture shock for me when I first came home! And so, I try as much as I can to find plants and flowers whenever I can, including at this mall across the street from my campus. It's not too lush, I guess, but it's got a pretty nice park and lovely plants all around. Unfortunately, I had to play a little hide-and-seek game with the security guards :')

P.S: Just in case you want to read part one and part two (not that they're connected or anything)
