The running project!

One or two years ago I was still fit enough to run a half marathon. Then my BA thesis happened and ten months of internships happened. The past two years have been awesome, but still, a part of me mourns those hours spent running. Then again, nothing is ever accomplished simply by looking back. If you want to make changes, then the only way to do so is by actually ‘doing’. Which is why I made a promise to myself. No more sporadic runs, instead, I am back to training regularly. I am setting up a schedule and I am setting the goal for myself to pick a running event in Edinburgh. MY running project Part of wanting to get back into my routine is that…

To Edinburgh and Beyond!

At the beginning of May, my dad and I booked ourselves a trip to Edinburgh. We were there for a long weekend and found ourselves right in the middle of cherry blossom season. Princess Street, The Meadows, and many more sights were colored pink with all the cherry blossoms in bloom and it might have been the prettiest sight I have ever seen.

Books I Keep Rereading

As one book addict extraordinaire to another I probably don’t have to tell you that we all have our favorite books. Whether that book is part of a series or a standalone, some books are simply made for rereading. Today I am sharing my favorite books with you, ones I’ve read over and over again and will probably continue to reread over and over again. First things first, why read the same book so often you ask? Glad you did, because I made a list: I simply love the story and want to bask in its amazingness again. There are ALWAYS details you miss the first time around. When you read it that second time, that little detail of awesomeness you missed the first time around…
