Seeing Red

I obviously haven’t posted in a while, and that’s because I had a bit of a block. I wanted to post a series of red-themes pictures – I sorted them out, made some edits and it was all ready, but it seemed inadequate somehow, and like I was posting just to post, so that post never materialized. While those pictures languished in a folder of my google drive, gathering electronic dust I have had a few shitty weeks, where I saw red (read: polite term for lost my shit on numerous occasions) mainly because I have lost focus in general. My finals are coming up and I am honestly not doing enough work, which is stressing me out on occasion – the rest of the time I’m sleeping/scrolling through insta/wasting time in general. If I’m being perfectly honest, this post is me procrastinating.

Yes, I’m aware this isn’t red, but the bougainvillea flowers were too pretty and vibrant to not include in this post.

Anyway, one good thing came out of this, and that is that now my red-themed pictures have a theme or a reason – they will not move onto the blogosphere without some semblance of relevance! Hurrah for pictures with purpose! (no, not more purpose than I have in my life – I know you were thinking that. I have tea in my life, and if that isn’t purpose, I don’t know what is :P)

Random tree at Yala. I have no idea why the leaves of that tree are red – this is not normal tree behavior in Sri Lanka. It is a rebellious, non-conforming tree with a greater purpose. Are those flowers?

Looking at the pictures now, I feel like they have very little relevance to this post. But I like them, so too bad.
