Lisbon National Pantheon

I am struggling to write something down, but I just haven't been in the mood this past week. As simple as that. 
Also hoarding a lot of pictures and neglecting the blog. Don't know when I'll feel like posting them, or if that's evening going to happen. 
I'll be back sometime. See you soon (I hope).

My Space

About 3 years ago I asked my dad if I could have a guest room we had but didn't use that much for myself. He consented and soon we started taking everything out. Not long after came the fun part and off we went shopping for new stuff, mainly furniture because I had lots of knick-knacks I didn't know where to put/store, and that was one of the reasons I asked for the room.  
I really like colour, which I didn't for a long time but I still like a white background. I know it is very trendy nowadays, but I always had and I always will. So I just added some pop of colour here and there as I felt like it. 
But there's one thing about all this. Once I finished assembling everything I felt like it wasn't quite finished yet. There was still a lot of white spots and gaps I had to fill, but with time I've learnt that it happens all by itslef with time and there is no point in buying stuff you actually don't need just to fill the free spaces you may have left. Sooner or later it all comes together perfectly!

On a Clear Day You Can See Forever

Sometimes I complain and complain nonstop about having no time to do what I want, but one thing I learnt this week is that I am probably the luckiest amongst my friends. Because I actually am one of the few (if not the only) who can enjoy two weeks of freedom from school. I have no classes. And I have no exams. And also, I get to live a very dispreocupied life during the semester. 
And how did I come to this conclusion, you ask!? Because I was the one who had to adjust my schedule to meet all my friends. I was always available but not them. Some had to study, others were spending just a few days at home because they had classes next day so I had to find a way to spend a few hours with everyone. And I actually liked it you know? Like, for the first time ever, I had to write down all my social commitments - sounds very sharp, I know. 

I know some people always leave Sunday to spend some time with the family. I have no particular rule about that but I tend to do so as well. Saturday night I went out with some girlfriends and had so much fun. You know when your face hurts from laughing so much? That happened. I ended up in a club I haven't been to since december 2013 (lol). I mean, just to make clear, it was totally unexpected after 2 plus hours singing karaoke and adding the fact that I'd been up since 8 a.m., went jogging and swimming and just got home at 4a.m. next day. 
So sunday morning was supposed to be spent in bed, and then no big plans really. But I got up super early again and called my dad to go out for lunch. And somehow, we ended up in the white snow covered mountains. I'll leave you with a few photos.
Have a nice week you guys!

Since Ever, Forever

We've known each other since ever. We are nothing alike. One is shy, the other outgoing. I guess that if we would meet just now we wouldn't get along so well as we do and that would be a shame. I really can't remember my life without D, and we never ever planned to stick together until highschool, or college but somehow we managed to keep in touch. 
When we were 10, she once told me I had no flaws (lol). I insisted a little bit more (because that's how stupid I was) and she then told me I was maybe a little bit too silly. I mean, if that even was my biggest flaw, ha. But that's how kind she is.
Anyways, I'm glad we get to be silly together. Until the end of time.

When Friends Come Over

Honestly, more than adoring this city myself I love to show other people how I see the place where I get to live. I feel the luckiest for being able to spend my days somewhere I love, and feel safe and at home. 

I took my last exam at the end of last week and a friend of mine was in town so as soon I got rid of that piece of paper off I went to meet her and M. We had a quick lunch at a cool place and then stroll for about an hour before L had to get back. I guess I've never did that before, I mean, we were very short of time so we couldn't go anywhere too far from the place we had lunch and we did not premeditate what we were going to do, but we let go and went with the flow. And I feel I gotta do this more often, because it felt good!
