over the last few months, my schoolblogging tag—videbimus lumen, taken from columbia’s motto—has undergone a number of silent shifts in meaning that are really fascinating to me? like, literally it means “we will see the light,” and i picked it because i felt like (having gotten myself back to school) i did finally see the light, after so long in darkness and hopelessness? except then somewhere along the way i lost sight of that, buried under all the stress, and it became rather like one of those persistent homeric epithets, inappropriate to the point of irony under the circumstances? and now finally it fits again, but mostly for the willed futurity of it—i will see the light, it’s the light at the end of the tunnel, of the semester. so.#videbimus lumen #metablogging

btw you have an AMAZING nose I love it :Dgosh okay so i realize this is a little belated but THANK YOU, literally nobody had ever said that to me before! and then you and elucubrare both did! :)) and like, i’m actually super self-conscious about the size of my nostrils, thanks to B, so the affirmation is extra-appreciated. #aubade #replies #affirmations #:D #*pleased face*
