When, in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes,
I all alone beweep my outcast state,
And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries, .
And look upon myself, and curse my fate,
Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,
Featured like him, like him with friends possest, .
Desiring this man's art, and that man's scope,
With what I most enjoy contented least;
Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising, .
Hoply I think on thee, and then my state,
Like to the lark at break of day arising
From sullen earth, sings hymns at heaven's gate; .
For thy sweet love remember'd such wealth brings,
That then I scorn to change my state with kings.

February 21: These violent delights have violent ends
And in their triump die, like fire and powder
Which, as they kiss, consume
Apparently I decided to give flatlays a try... Also I started a book/bullet journal - nice, late start and everything. I never thought I would say this, but seeing so many posts for study journals, I kind of miss being a student. Not high school - oh god no - but I miss university. Now I kind of want to go back and get my masters degree... But I also kind of don’t want to be the thirty year old in grad school...
