Blue world

General, Glasgow, Photos, Strathclyde University, Tips

I’m no morning person but I really love the way the world looks like when the sun rises. Like now when it is winter, when the world looks all blue. Like seeing everything through a blue photo filter. Today it has been snowing a lot. Didn’t see much of it, thankfully, as I was in the library all day staring at research of the future real estate market. I installed an app on my laptop called SelfControl, you put all websites you are not supposed to visit while studying in a blacklist, sites like facebook, bloglovin’, tumblr and my own blog. Yes, yesterday’s redesign is a product of procrastination. Anyway, you set a time of a few hours and during that time you can’t access the sites you’ve blacklisted. Very effective when stuck with a boring assignment such as my essay, and to quench the need to escape to keep my soul from dying. That’s today’s tips! Enjoy frustrating discipline!

The evil workload

School doesn’t start until the 27th January, but until then I have three more assignments to do. I’m not worried about two of them but the third… If you don’t hear from me, I’m at the bottom of the Kelvin. Development process essay. It’s like to rub shoulders with evil. This will be me in front of my laptop the coming 10 days:

Stormy weather

I think most of you noticed that there has been a storm. On Friday night the building was shaking and I couldn’t sleep because the wind was so loud and fired off rain at my window. The next day I was out for a run and found debris everywhere and fallen trees. Today I was out for a run again and just after I came home it started to hail, and then rain, and then snow, and then the sun came out, and it started to rain again, and snow – everything horizontal, of course, because of the wind. And don’t get me wrong, I love storms, I get all excited. Sure is interesting weather here.

Dark winter night with a flash

To go to the bus stop from my mother house, you can take the shortcut through the forest where there is a swamp. There is a footbridge to keep your feet dry and it is in complete darkness when the sun goes down. I’ve been taking this path for thirteen years. It’s a preserved green area, or a wildlife corridor as it’s called, which makes it possible for wild animals to go between different nature areas. I love this place which is just a strip of nature between two residential areas. The night I took these photos I couldn’t see anything, just dots of light from distant houses and the full moon. I don’t like to use the flash when I take photos, as the result gives you sharp shadows, too bright objects and messes with the colours. These photos though, I really like how they look and the fact that I didn’t know what I was taking photo of.
