Things I Love Thursday

27 Jun

  • Exams being OVER. That was one horrible exam session. Not the worst ever, but the toll on my body and mental health was definitely the Worst Ever.
  • Names which have two capital letters in it. Sorry, inside joke. Hilarious inside joke. <3
  • Reading a novel, mmm.
  • Catching two buses in one day and not having to wait for more than a minute and not dying of heat. (And not having to drive/look for parking/walk a mile!)
  • One of the best hot dogs ever
  • My best friend, Annie, who is the best
  • My other best friend, Anna, who is equally amazing
  • Success and teamwork and completion
  • Indian food and a glass of wine at the perfect moment
  • Getting a discount for my boyfriend
  • Glorious swims
  • Octopus (to eat!)
  • A wine + cheese evening with my wonderful boyfriend. SO GOOD.
  • Plans and efficiency
  • Almond flakes on top of a nutella pancake <3

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.

20 Jun

THE TILT IS BACK. I can barely believe that it’s a week since The Exam of Horror and Doom. But it is. And I’ve been swimming every day since, and working hard at other things (including some studying for my next and final exam…)

  • Swimming!
  • Surviving Criminal Procedure
  • Delicious food with a dear old friend
  • New notebooks
  • My phone
  • Finishing Maltese proofread exams
  • More proofreading of awesome theses
  • A really wonderful celebration with one of my best friends with pink cava and delicious nibbles and so much conversation (and swimming, too!)
  • A birthday lunch of fun and giggles
  • Boyfriend support
  • Summer starting properly
  • Lots of eating out
  • Wrapping presents and creating a Hamper of Awesome
  • Happy bonding

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…
