Summer. Time off work. Sun, sun, sun warming my face. And weirdly enough I have the soundtrack to Frozen on repeat. Now and then Part of your world pops on when I feel like belting out my inner Disney princess.

The heat in my apartment is getting to me, yeah.

All the while I’m copying the last two years of my life in photos to an external hard drive for keepsake. So much has happened. Life is weird, and good, and always surprises you.

And soon I’m about to start a new chapter in life. But more about that later. Right now, three more weeks of doing exactly what I want. Sleep in, run, watch my favorite series, be in the sun with closed eyes and eat lots of watermelon. And strawberries, my favorite this time of the year.

I just got back from spending a week up north where I have relatives living. It was just what I needed; mostly the sound of nature and birds and lawn mowers. No traffic, no city stress.

Fanart: Blake Lewis

I Skyped with Blake Lewis a couple of weeks ago. Seeing as he’s one of my favorite musicians, I got pretty excited. And inspired apparently as I opened up PS again after way too long.

My birthday week is over. I’ve used the hashtag #birthdayweek ironically during the week while anticipating becoming a year older. And now I am and it doesn’t feel any different at all.

This year I wasn’t too excited making any plans. Despite that, I got a note a week ago. To: Me, From: Unknown. It turned out to be a surprise dinner this Saturday, my birthday, with a few friends that my mom help set up. Party hats, dinner and then it was dance, dance, dance until closing. So sweet, so fun, such a blast.

Seventeen days

Next up in my life is my birthday. Sure, Valentine’s Day comes before that, but besides the fact that this lovey dovey day was supposed to be my birthday, it’s pretty much always a rather ordinary day.

I do however enjoy the red, heartshaped gumdrops that the stores always start selling while anticipating the day and their big sales when everyone start being romantic. Oh hello, where are my spontaneous roses or box of liquorice (yea, no chocolate thanks) other times during the year? It’s love, no need to go all in during just one day of the year. ♥ (Let’s forget the fact I’m single for a moment, yeah?)

Anyhow, this was about my birthday. I’m writing this craving candy, which probably is the reason as to why Valentine’s Day was brought up. Candy and love kind of goes together. Saturday the 22nd of February I’m gonna eat loads of liquorice since I haven’t eaten it in forever and am the biggest lover of it. Avoiding sweets while in training is hard but manageable for a sweet tooth like me. But it works out while working out, hehe, I have my goal set and can’t wait to get there.
