Sunday Photo Mishmash: Mainly – a cat in a sink.

23 Jun

My cat wouldn’t get out of the kitchen sink a few days ago. Why? I have no idea. I don’t think it was to cool off, because other parts of the house (away from a sunny window) were a million times cooler. Hmm.

Below – an awesome friend of mine brought me AMAZING notebooks from the US! I do love notebooks. Pardon the chipped nail polish.

My father brought me a few gifts this week after a little trip… <3

This week holds my LAST EXAM OF FIFTH YEAR LAW. Cannot wait. It’s on Wednesday, and I can’t wait for it to be over. I’m going for a celebratory day-cruise after the exam is over, and I can’t wait to kick off some Summer Plans.


Sunday Photo Mishmash: PROCEDURE IS OVER.

16 Jun

My body and soul are engulfed by relief right now. This week was taxing – but that’s the biggest understatement ever. I had a Maltese exam on Monday (which was quite difficult but was fine overall). Then the pressure really got to be a bit overwhelming for a couple of days as I prepared for Criminal Procedure. Ugh. It was hell. BUT it’s over now, and I seem to have done well enough to pass (hopefully), which is all I need at this point. Nope, not becoming a defence lawyer or anything like that any time soon.

The past two days have been a whirlwind of swimming, drinking sparkling alcoholic things, and doing a lot of little housekeeping-related things. I even had time to write a little post yesterday about how to survive music festivals. And I started watching Hannibal. It’s all good. My next (and final) exam is a week on Wednesday (on the 26th) and my plan for today is to (1) relax a bit more (2) get some proofreading done (3) maybe look at some law notes (or maybe not). Ahh, life is good. My skin is already moving towards being more tanned than pasty white, and the temperatures have started hitting the 30s (finally).

After my exam in 10 days’ time, life will have to get back into high gear (work work work), BUT it will also mean that exams are over and swimming opportunities are abundant. So much to look forward to.

Sunday Photo Mishmash: Procedure

9 Jun

It’s been an interesting week. My stress levels just won’t go down, but the end is so close. The end of procedure, that is. I’d still have another exam on 26 June, but that’ll be fine. This week will contain two Maltese exams and the Biggest Exam Ever in the shape of the Law of Criminal Procedure and Evidence. Interesting, but ick.

The photo above is of a little meal I prepared for myself earlier this week. Healthy, yes. Delicious, mmm. I obviously devoured a box of chocolate biscuits after eating that, but STILL. Asparagus forever.

Hopefully next Sunday there won’t be a Sunday Photo Mishmash because I’ll be chin-deep in sun and sea and slushies…

Sunday Photo Mishmash: stressful times and intense-cat-face

26 May

We had a glorious wedding yesterday; it was so beautiful and luxurious and fun. While I’m recovering (and still retrieving photos), here are some other photos I put on Instagram this week. First up, my hair is getting freakishly long. I like that.

Secondly, my boyfriend’s family’s cat, Tiger.

And a final one of me that was taken by my boyfriend while I was Mega Stressing over some Maltese Civil Procedure. Fun times. (Not.) (Not at all.)

Exams kick off this week, eek! Best of luck to everyone in the same boat as me (and to everyone with thesis deadlines!) :) x

Sunday Photo Mishmash: an amazing quiche, and paintball bruises!

12 May

I was super-inspired by a recent birthday present I received, and I wanted to make some form of a pie this week! And this is the result. I made this awesome and asparagus quiche – delicious.

Yesterday, I went to my first Bachelorette Party – which was super fun. We had a whole day of activities, including mountains of sushi and cake and drinks… and PAINTBALL. Which I was terrified about but actually ended up being quite effective at it. The only problem (apart from the insane muscle pain this morning…) was the bruising! The hits I took directly on the skin. Let’s take a moment to look at the fresh bruises.

This morning, they’re much redder. I wonder what other colours these will be morphing into.

Hope you all have great weeks!

Sunday Photo Mishmash: beautiful Malta + the National Library

5 May

Wednesday was a public holiday… which meant a walk in the gorgeous countryside!

On Friday, a friend of mine launched his first book with a crazy interesting lecture at the National Library. A very fun night.

I am so behind on work right now, so this week must be intensely productive. Hopefully.

Sunday Photo Mishmash: a cookery book + a kitty on a motorbike!

28 Apr

Two of my favourite friends gave me my birthday present on Sunday, and I am in love. Really cannot wait for some free time so I can furnish the entire world with pies and tarts and delicious things.

And finally, this kitty-on-a-motorbike was the highlight of my day this week. Look at how s/he sits there WITH PURPOSE.

Hope everyone is having a relaxing Sunday. I should be writing a 3,000-word assignment. As well as studying up a storm. Yeah. I’m probably just popping over to Patches
