This is what my April looked like:
My roommate Kat and I both share April birthdays (Taurus rule) so we decided to host a Princess tea party! The theme was pink and girly and delicious. Well, Kat wasn’t having any of it, and wore a blue dress. But she was also the birthday girl, so we decided it was acceptable.
All the photographs of the cliffs, were taken by Konstantin. I took the day off
Tickets to the ballet for my birthday!
Eeek – we walked there and I was scared!
The lillies Konstantin bought for my new home.
Remember how my camera was broken before? Well I took it to the camera-doctor and it turns out my lens was broken (gasp). So then I set my heart on a new lens. A sigma 18-200mm with OS, which my boyfriend got me for my birthday (!!!!!!!!!!!).
After one of my exams, my roommate Kattul (her real name is Kat but it’s Kattul is cuter. And you are supposed to say it like “Katt-ul” not like cattle because that would be associated with cows and that’s not the point. ) and I devised 3 and 6 point plans of fun, respectively. Her 3 point plan was: 1. Clean the house 2. Eat Pizza 3. Chill.
My 6 point plan was: 1. Clean the house 2. Make the strawberry and spinach leaves salad with balsamic vinegar/honey dressing that I have been drooling about (see picture above). 3. Play little big planet on the ps3. 4. Make a daisy chain. 5. Write a blog post. 6. Play with Mike’s light sabers.
Mine was quite elaborate and I’m proud to say I completed everything but write my blog post (:(). It’s kind of important and pleasing to schedule fun into your day. Usually we focus on scheduling all the non-fun things and make them very important – which they are. But having fun is important too. It’s so satisfying to schedule fun, and give yourself a pat on the back when you achieve the fun things too.
Here’s the daisy chain I made.
And those were the colours of my April. Of course April also included a lot of other things – like memorizing the names of the transporters that exist on the cell membrane, but that would not have been fun to photograph.
Sadly the amount of free space allowance I have on this wordpress account is coming to an end, which is too bad, because I really like photographs on this blog. I think it makes everything more beautiful. I am not sure how much it is to upgrade my wordpress account. Has anyone done this before? How much is it?
Konstantin and I discovered some lectures on ayurvedic life-knowledge online. Now we’re hooked. Like seriously hooked like drug addicts. I feel like I am going through a complete spiritual revolution inside my soul, and I don’t even know how to write about it right now. I feel so different in every single way possible. It feels like I shifted to another frequency of living from. I know this sounds very mystical and mysterious and I apologize for my ineloquence but when I figure it all out, I will get back to you.
So that’s why I am quiet these days. I’m learning. I’m feeding my mind and my soul. Both spiritually and academically. And because I am engaged in this learning process, devoting energy into simultaneously creating would be counter productive. And that is why I am quiet.
My exams finish on Friday and on Saturday I am going to Latvia with Konstantin, and then to Canada for a month for summer.
Despite the most hideous of exams coming up this friday, life is good, and I am very, very happy.
