French Earl Grey

There doesn't seem to be anything special about the 29th of May - except maybe Oak Apple Day (okay I looked that up) - but for me it's been a pretty great day. My first serious exams finished and after a crazy two weeks I can stop and reflect, but also get super excited about a couple of things.

I really wold like to say thank you to the things that got me through exams - my playlist, French earl grey, and my things to look forward to. This playlist has basically been on repeat for the last two weeks, and I don't think its possible to listen to these songs too much. As the weather's getting colder, tea is seeming more and more welcoming, and French earl grey is the perfect pick-me-up for those lazy, uninspiring afternoons.

I'm getting excited about
Seeing The Great Gatsby tomorrow because it's a brilliant book which even 6 weeks of studying in lit couldn't make me dislike, and that is totally saying something.
My ski trip to New Zealand at the end of this term. I worked so hard over the summer holidays to pay for it, I'm stoked to be going with some pretty awesome people, and I've never been skiing before! It sounds amazing.
France - there is a possibility that I'll be accepted into an exchange program where, during the holidays at the end of the year, I go to France for six weeks. I'll get to go to school and stay with a family and just wow. I cannot comprehend nor describe to you how amazing it would be if that happened.

I'm also feeling so motivated to kick out my terrible exam-eating habits and finally get back into running. And on top of all that, I'm really just looking forward to the little things that make each day or week or moment! I hope you have a wonderful day or night, wherever you are.

This will probably be a kind of random collection of photos, thoughts and writing and lots of fun!
