My monday: drinking coffee and cleaning the house while it’s raining outside (AGAIN). Listening to this and this (the title song from Parenthood, my latest tv-show obsession). Trying out some more water colouring after my first attempt yesterday and starting a new book. All in all a nice start of the week :) (also: Tara drew a cartoon version of me, how cool!)

Ugh, let me just be honest with you, I’m not feeling that well lately. Maybe it’s the greyness outside? I’ve been busy with school and there is also some not so cheery family stuff. On top of that I’m unproductive and even when I do manage to do something, I hate everything I write and every picture I take. FRUSTRATING. I’ll probably laugh about this in a week (fingers crossed), but right now it feels utterly frustrating. How did I suddenly become 16 again?! THERE ARE PEOPLE DYING IN SYRIA YOU KNOW, get a grip.

To snap myself out of this (or at least try), I decided to think about the things I loved the past few weeks. Here they are.

new camera & boredom equals this

Hi, yes, I’m still alive & I was bored, so there you have it. I somehow thought it would be a fun idea to film a “daily make-up routine” (don’t blame me, I’m just severely indoctrinated by all of the crap on youtube) and of course it turned out ridiculous. Let’s call this the director’s cut.

Normal updating will soon commence! (don’t know if that’s true, but I feel like I should say it anyway)

La Grande Bellezza (‘The Great Beauty’), I seriously have no words for it, other than: please go and see it, it’s simply amazing! Watched this beautiful film in cinema last friday night and I’m still thinking about it. Here is a link to the trailer.

Monday morning started early with a visit to Amsterdam. As you can see it was rather wet. Where is my snow?! ❆ We finally bought a frame! I got this poster at the Modern Museum in Malmö for my 22nd birthday. ❆ Passing Rotterdam on our way to my family in Zeeland. ❆ Owls are cute! This one has a place on our mantelpiece.

Nothing better than a crisp new shirt you found in sale.

On New Year’s Eve we had a little photoshoot with my new camera, a passe partout and our friend/sister. It was really really fun and we ended up with a lot of great pictures! (I only included our picture because I don’t know if the others would like to be on the internet ;))

A very pretty sky. ❆ A picture I took at the beach. ❆ A really healthy omelette. Balances out all of the Big Macs I’ve been eating lately… whoops #sorrynotsorry ❆ STUDYTIME. Not cool. Also: literally five minutes after this picture was taken I knocked over my coffee. Bye bye clean table cloth (which was actually an old curtain, so who cares right).

The past week has been a bit boring actually! Of course I could’ve been smarter and plan a bit better, but instead I had to work like crazy this week to be able to meet my deadlines. Who sets those things RIGHT AFTER Christmas break in the first place…?! That’s just bad manners! Ahem. Anyway, because of said deadlines I was stuck to my laptop these past few days, typing away and staring at the ceiling in despair and typing again and then, when sunday came, I sent it in, right on the twelve o’clock dot (PM that is). And that’s about as exciting as my week would get.

At the moment, as we speak, I should actually be doing work for my other deadline this week. It’s master thesis time and on thursday we have to present our idea to a small panel of other students (again, my life is so exciting). The good news is: I have determined a subject. The bad news is: I still haven’t been able to formulate a real ~question~ from which to conduct my research (pooh, had a bit of difficulty with translating the term there, but let’s just leave it at that). It’s the most difficult part I think! Hope it will come to me when reading up about it.

Of course, me being inside and stuck behind my laptop for most of the time, also means a lot of procrastinating has been done. Here are some things I found and like to share:

Probably my life saver this week: the Lord of the Rings soundtrack. I know, I know, super geeky and whatevs, but if it’s good enough for Orlando Bloom, then it’s good enough for me (j/k, Lord of the Rings is awesome, just like Orli’s butt). Something about that music even makes essay writing an EPIC event (just as epic like… well, no, I’m not going to make that joke). ♥ THE NEW VERONICA MARS FILM IS ALMOST HERE!!! Watch the trailer over here. ♥ Just a few more nights of sleep and then there will also be a new episode of GIRLS! I’m so excited for the new season. Here’s a teaser. ♥ It’s a bit difficult to read a lot when you’ve been studying all day, but I do manage to read 1 or 2 chapters of Hilary Clinton’s book every day without falling asleep. I hope she will publish a book about her time as a Secretary of State soon! But maybe she’s too busy with running for president..? ;) ♥ I really like that Kim has been blogging a lot more lately! Go check that out if you want! :) ♥

Music, mix the bourgoise and the rebelllll, yeahhh ♫

I have been on a real David Bowie binge the past few days. This is probably one of my favourite songs. Did you know that the song is about two lovers who are separated by the Berlin Wall? Bowie wrote it in 1977 during his stay in West-Berlin.

Have a good week everyone ♥
