Hey there, how are you? Have you spent the last four days in a chocolate food coma that you’ve only woken up from to eat some more chocolate? If that is the case, I congratulate you: you have done Easter right. Although my weekend didn’t quite look like that, I still had an absolutely lovely time (and don’t worry, there was still enough chocolate involved. Obviously). Continue reading
Guess who crawled out of a hole, once again! I have a very good excuse for not being a busy bee on my blog for the first three weeks of January: hello, eleven exams over the course of two weeks! It wasn’t fun. But I’m glad to say it’s over and went pretty well. For the last two weeks, however, I have absolutely no excuse. Pure laziness, I’m sorry. In the two weeks since my last exam I celebrated with my study-buddies (we played “Never have I ever” – it was rather interesting!), went to a gig in Zürich (Ron Pope; highly recommend checking him out if you’re into singer/songwriter stuff), met up with lots of my friends and of course, did sweet nothing for quite a while. I also fell ill, which usually brings doing nothing with it. I also went out two weekends in a row, which is really wild for me. I am, after all, an old lady on the inside. Continue reading
I know it sounds absolutely lame and everyone always says the exact same thing, but can you believe how quick another year has passed? It has always been weird for me how time seems to go by faster and faster every year until someone recently told me something, that explains it all and makes perfect sense: relative to the time we have already lived, a year will always become shorter and shorter. So for example if you are two years old, one year is half of your life. If you are twenty, one year is only five percent of your life. Makes sense? It kind of does to me, but at the same time, it’s pretty scary because it means that the years will pass by even quicker. But enough of that now, before I get my brain into a knot.
For today’s Blogmas post, I had to do a slight change of plans. I was meant to write about the Christmas market in Basel I wanted to visit yesterday, but in the end, my friend and I decided not to go and so we just met up for hot chocolates instead. It was lovely, but not exactly blogging-material.
As I’ve announced in a previous post, I am doing Blogmas this year. I say this year but it’s actually the first opportunity for me to participate since my blog will only turn 1 this December. So when my dear friend Noemi from Down the Rocky Road asked if I wanted to do Blogmas with her, I obviously said yes. You should definitely go over there for less grammar mistakes and more frequent posts. Also, for the sweet person Noemi is. There will be some days where we will collaborate on the contents of our blogs and others where we will be doing completely different things. So go down the rocky road, give Noemi some love and see what we’ve got up our sleeves.
There is a good chance that right now, two thoughts are going through your mind. 1. Oh dear, it’s another one of these odes to autumn and 2. It’s been autumn for a while now, why are you writing this now when it’s almost winter?
The answers to these thoughts are: Yes, it is and I don’t really care. Plus, my last name translates to autumn and I think that gives me the right to write about autumn whenever the heck I want. My birthday is also in autumn and it’s my favourite season. I think you can see where I’m going with this. I’m an autumn girl. Also, the weather has been so warm lately that any thoughts of winter just seem completely out-of-place. And how many times can I write “autumn” in one blog post? (It’s eight times so far, in case you were wondering)
I think it’s fair to say that I’ve been a pretty rubbish blogger – sorry about that! But here I am, giving it another go.
