Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

Hello darlings, Merry Christmaaaaas! I hope everyone’s Christmas is amazing and that you are spending it with people you love and that you took a moment to slow down this rush we live in and to appreciate the people around you. Appreciate what they do for you throughout the year, what they do for the world, how they make it a better place for you to live in. I am sure there is at least on person, family, friend, even a stranger that deserves a thank you and some kind words. As I grew up, I realised that Christmas was less about the presents that got me so excited as a kid, and more about me being blessed enough to be able to spend it with my family, to have a few days of appreciation towards them and their support, to step back and realise how much I have and how little others have and really think about it, you know? I let it sink in and I let it make me a better person and a more grateful person. We get lost sometimes in the rush for a goal, for a good degree, for a great job, for our dreams. And you know how vocal I am about people following their dreams! But you have to slow down and appreciate that people are still with you through it, they still love you, they still stand by you, even in your rush. And that is something that I really cherrish. Family is everything and I always put it first. And moreover, this year, I realised who are the friends...
Time Off

Time Off

Hello there, I have evaded the adult life a bit and finally went on a holiday!! I have been waiting for this to happen the whole summer! I travelled to my home town about 2 weeks ago for the Untold festival, I’m sure you saw the updates on Instagram, but I didn’t get a chance to write anything about it as I flew back the very next day and went back to work. At the end of the week I flew again, to Bucharest this time, to see Rihanna, Steve Aoki and Sia. As you can tell, very hectic, I have no idea what happened on the days between Untold and this festival as I have been working and at the same time tried to put my new house together. And yes, that is me, always on the run and always busy but this time with almost no sleep for quite a long time, it was quite hard to stay alive! However, now that I got to sleep a bit, I can say I have no regrets! Untold was absolutely amazing – well organised, great concerts and a lot of nice stuff to do around the festival! Clara, one of the photographers you have seen on the blog joined me and Deea in Cluj so we spent the days sightseeing and showing her around Cluj. It was great to share our life here with her and also, I loved it because I have missed my hometown dearly. So no sleep, but day time trips were totally worth it! Then having my last week at work was emotional – I...

Holding On

I have tried to hold on to Barcelona for as long as I could… Even so, it was not long enough, and I still think of that Palm Trees lifestyle and with summer coming up, all I can think about is that I want to escape to a place like that and stay there for the whole summer! Even if Belgium gives me chocolate, it also gives me so much to learn. And, you know I love learning, but as a student, you know that time comes when it’s sunny outside and you have to stay in and study for exams. Yes, it’s not the ideal situation. So, I must say, even if it’s not that sunny, I miss England and its practical system, where not everything is about exams and theory. But, no more complaining! I will just take it as it is and enjoy my last few weeks here, on Erasmus. I cannot talk about leaving yet, because it seems unreal, so I’d rather go on and on about these exams and everything that I need to study. Truth is, even with all its bad sides, I don’t want it to end. So, as I am still holding on to Barcelona, I am also holding on to this beautiful experience and I hope to make the most of what’s left, because I will for sure miss it.┬áNo time to turn sentimental, because these exams still need me to be focused! So I’d better get back to studying, even if my mind is thinking about everything but that. Like where to travel next, or what happens after Erasmus...

And I'm off to…

…BARCELONA!!!   As you’re reading this, I am waiting to get on my flight to one of my favourite cities visited so far! I am literally so excited, that I cannot stop smiling!! Apart from returning to the beauty of Barcelona, I will also have a reunion with my friends which is even more exciting! This is why I have tried my best to do all this unconceivable amount of work as I don’t want to leave worried that I left things undone or to keep my mind on it. I will take these few days as they are: a vacation! With good friends, sun and new memories! Of course, intensive sessions of catching up are overdue!   Living in the light of the sun was also a good motivation, as the weather here reminded me of England and then it showed me that it can be worse than that and that you should never pretend that you know how the weather is going to be like! Like, seriously, don’t even try… I have waited so long for this: no more thights, no more boots, just skirts, dresses and sandals, ahhh. This is what also made me find this lovey Gap skirt that I have had for a while and not wore it, time to change that! So, that was my exciting news!! Also, the sad part is that while I’m there I won’t be posting on the blog, but I promise to keep you updated!! Just keep following me on Facebook and Instagram and I will make sure to share the sun with you!! Besitos, D.    ...
