It’s been an intense week-and-a-half. Here are a few chosen highlights from the past two eventful weeks.
Finished up in the studio to disappointing results in the sense that I wasn’t entirely happy with the outcome… Had Crit today which was unsurprisingly depressing. But that’s the way it is.
Lovely Siiri posing with one of her masterful creations.
Celebrated Valentine’s Day (Ystävänpäivä or Alle Hjärtans Dag for me) a good week before the actual day by decorating and devouring cupcakes.
I took a Saturday off, together with my roommates, to roam the shops along Princes Street and buy a new foundation. I’ll tell you this – No7’s Match Make service is excellent. Never before have I had a tone that suits my own so perfectly I am really happy with it both the service and the foundation! Also, a new store in Edinburgh (Anime Something inside Princes Mall) sells Pocky and other Japanese goodies.
A true Viking, Laufey, wearing the greatest misunderstanding in sartorial history.
But before we headed to the shops we visited the National Museum of History’s Viking exhibition. I can recommend it but take the information exhibited with a grain of salt as some points are actually inaccurate.
The past two weeks went by in a flurry of finalizing projects and printing for the deadline we had today. I cannot tell you how relieved I am that that’s finished. Now all I have to do is do the research for an essay in one module, shoot for another and write an assessment on a third. My hand’s are full…
Lovely Bea popped by to visit and to audition to uni here. Fingers crossed to her joining us here! The other person guzzling a Crabbies is Salka.
We spent a long, lovely (and dramatic) end of the week, and weekend. Despite some dramatic twists, the weekend was the best weekend in a long time.
Last but not least – today. Today was a stressful and maddening day which still hasn’t ended. I’m calming down after the Crit by watching Castle and Once Upon a Time which should ease my nerves and mind. If not I’ll resort to chocolate and bad movies. However, Once Upon a Time is doing exactly what it should – distracting me from my own thoughts.
