I'm majoring in Microbiology and Genetics. I like flowers and I play the piano.
Thanks for reading my amazing bio.

dA feels pretty strange, it must be the 'new look' combined with my inability to reply to messages and keep track of my watch feed. I am like everyone else, except everyone else reads their friends' deviations eventually, I just log in everyday and do nothing, I am a pizza burn on the roof of the world's mouth, I am the OPPOSITE OF BATMAN.
(community reference, anyone? no? okay bye :eyes: )

So I passed final year, and now have a degree! A slightly bigger achievement: survived Christmas shopping.

The second half of this year has turned out to be the most wonderful few months of my life, and I honestly didn't expect things to work out this well. Most of this year was the aftermath of last year's events, it was ash, cold and helpless, and I expected the second half of the year to just shrivel and wither away but that is not what happened. What happened was life, green growth, getting perspective and finally remembering who I really am. 

Fear always hits me when I feel like I have nothing left to look forward to, but if I've learned anything it's that we ought to have a little faith that shit always works out. The big, beautiful and fantastic turning points in this year were not predicted, and sometimes goodness just shows up. It's weird, weird but sweet and fresh and delicious, like this chocolate cake I bought from Pick n Pay yesterday. Irrelevant. 

Good things? Kids club at church this week, carol singing evening on Friday and Christmas food! 
A not so good thing is a certain bestie is leaving Durban next year and I will miss him dreadfully. But life goes on, I guess. Perhaps many glasses of wine and over dramatic poetry will ease my fears.

Hope everyone is good, HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE dA APP?! 

Also, if anyone cares about anything, Alt J - This Is All Yours is the most beautiful damn album I've heard all year.

When did you start playing the piano? Do you compose as well, or do you just play it? :meow:
IyraEMM Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
oh gosh I started ages ago. I began messing around on it when I was about 6 and started lessons when I was 8, I think. I try to compose! they just don't go where I want them to though, lol, so I end up abandoning them. I just play mostly :) and I still go for lessons even though I am a big donkey now. I play in church as well so that's fun, loads of fun.

i'm doing really well thanks, the second half of this year just opened up magic doors of positiveness and good vibes, i did not see it coming. guess i overestimated the power of a rough patch and underestimated my own inner peace. but yeah, basically i'm really fine :') just finished my degree too! much love Dee :heart:
