Skiing/Snowboarding Trip with the Family

It’s Friday night, 10 pm, and I am writing posts to make sure there’ll be posts for you to enjoy while I am spending my time in the snow (and staying in an apartment with no internet connection -sobs). When this post goes online, I’ll probably be in the car on my way to a snowy mountain in France. It is a one week trip, and it will be the first time we’ll spend New Years Eve in another country (and without the rest of the family). I’m looking forward to snowboarding all day, spending time with the family, catching up on some reading when I get back tired to the bones from snowboarding all day, and of course Après Ski! I’ve never done Après Ski before, me and…

Post Christmas Pondering

My family just left and I am sitting on the couch still recovering from an overload of good food as Christmas music softly plays in the background. Armed with a hot cup of tea and wearing my Christmas-ish pyjama I can’t help but grab my laptop and write a post about my day. Today was great. Understatement: it was the bomb! I love the sight of my family opening their presents and realizing that I picked the perfect gift for them. The traditional turkey we prepare every year specially for this time of year (and turned out pretty damn perfect, if I do say so myself). Even better was the company: Both my grandparents joined us for dinner and I can’t help but feel so incredibly blessed that they are still around; my uncle; and of course my…

Not A Slump & Not Too Busy But A Little Something Different

I haven’t been that active lately, have I? Don’t answer that. I know I haven’t been online as much as I used to be. Whether you believe it or not, I actually went a week without even opening my laptop during my hiatus. Then at night -when I was supposed to go to sleep- I would lie awake, pondering why I wasn’t as upset about that as I previously would have been. Because there was a time I would’ve been upset about that. So what’s going on? It’s not a slump. Not a reading slump, because I haven’t stopped reading. I read one classic a week for my study, and then another one (or two) for recreation. Reading might’ve become a bit slower than usual, and I might have some trouble picking up a…

I am still very much alive

Yes! It might seem like I’m not since I have absolutely abused my poor blog by not posting anything for almost TWO whole weeks. But I am still very much alive and I’ll start with explaining the weak and poor and horrid excuse as to why I haven’t been around as much. It is so much of a lame excuse that I need only one word to sum it up: university. Gah! I have officially survived my fifth week at university. And not blogging would be okay, if I could tell you that I have been buried alive with homework since the very fist day, but as tempting as it is, that would be a lie. The lectures and tutorials – and yes, even the amount of homework –…
