okok, I am still très busy with school, but this Tuesday (The Latvian Independence day) me and mom and pug skipped the crowds in the city centre and the fireworks <-ugh, useless and bad for the environment! and went to the Kurzeme region, the ultimate destination – Cape Kolka!
rocks are fun
rocky beach! The beach is covered in boulders and pebbles for several kilometres.
seaweed is fun too, obvi
candle in the wind
incredibly green moss
dry heather flower in the woods
Photos of Cape Kolka look like photos of any random Latvian beach tbh, it is beautiful and windy, but there are no cliffs or anything that would make a person think oh, that’s a cape for sure. It is, however, interesting to watch the waves on the cape as they come from two directions and meet on the cape, you can easily see the place where exactly the cape is (because obviously there’s more sandbank under the sea).
Now, unrelated to the trip, but I feel that it is important to add that I have decided not to study physics in the future. I am proud to have challenged myself and my grades in physics are twice as good now as they were two years ago, but I decided it would be way too hard to study it at a university level, mostly because of the math part. Also I decided that what I really like and want to do and what actually feels like my thing is earth science/geology/ecology(?). I have always been good at geography and I like nature and want to understand our planet better and geologists get to spend loads of time on field and travel to amazing places for work if they do research (I’ve always wanted to go to Antarctica! But not like a tourist, you know?). Besides I’ll still have to study some physics as an earth science major!

I tried to be happy, it wasn’t easy
When I choose my color, it will be
Razzle dazzle rose
No particular reason for posting Razzle Dazzle Rose, but it is one of my all time favourite songs and I was listening to it on youtube the other day and realised that I had never liked it on there or posted here so… ♡
And I am being boring again, but I have to go now, it is really really late and I have to wake up early for school tomorrow. Looking forward tomorrow night because I will see Manta live again! yas yas yas, my fav Latvian band, I hope u all know that, okkk. It should be noted that I went to a show of theirs two weeks ago… And I ran into my friend and ex-classmate Luīze there! Shout out to Luīze! Veseļojies, Lu, lai ātri sadzīst potīte!
