I’ve only recently discovered your work, but I really, really love your sensory vignettes. I get that same sense of calm from when I listen to thunderstorm recordings (the 10-hour long ones on YouTube).
My early decision application for university is due in two weeks and my personal statement is still unfinished…. I’d be honored if you could take a look. If not, it’s completely fine! You’re an adult. I’m a high schooler, and a stranger nonetheless, messaging you through Medium (weird — who does that?). Just please let me know as soon as possible. :-)
