In this cold and rainy sunday, I chose to spend the day at home, on my sofa, writing, making lists, reading and meditating about the upcoming week.
I just finished PMSing and I am now surprisingly in a very good mood. I loved celebrating new years with my best friend and discovering Copenhagen a week before that. For 2017, I wish to read more, swim more and go to more lectures. I’ve been doing that for the last two weeks so i’m quite happy with myself.
For some unknown reason, I feel calm. I have a lot to do, internships to find and exams to pass but I feel very positive and hopefully, I will get shit done this year.
I guess music helped. I’ve been listening to Angel Olsen for the past two weeks. All of her three albums and man, she now has my heart. I was so happy to see that she would be playing live in June that I immediately bought a ticket. If you’re interested, my favorite tracks are : The Waiting, Lonely Universe, Unfucktheworld, Windows, Stars, Iota, Woman, Those were the days, SISTER.
Everything I guess. You listen to her voice, the peaceful electric guitar, the powerful lyrics and the very subtle bass and suddenly you’re transported and wish to never come back.
I read Wuthering Heights last week, without finding it as depressing as everyone says. I actually enjoyed it very much. Sure, the characters are full of flaws but interesting enough to portray and analyze. I loved how gothic this novel was and the fact that nature was the biggest character of all. Us millennials don’t realize that once – and even today in some countries – life was ruled by nature and men were quite powerless when facing it.
I though I would capture my life today, in the beginning of 2017.
My apartment, belongings and state of mind.
As you can see, i’m still very dreamy.
I’ve been wearing this sweater a lot. It’s comfy, blue and so warm (also from pull&bear if you’re interested). I smell like Chanel N5 and will for the rest of my life. The only accessories I wear are my watch – while being late ALL THE TIME – and my hoop silver earrings.
My room is simple, yet always messy. The Monet painting is the first thing I look at when I come out of bed. My record collection is growing. My bookshelf is a mess and needs some serious organizing.
The smell of coffee in the morning is still one of my favorite things.
So is this Virginia Woolf mug.
On my Reading List for January and February :
“Now so long, Marianne.
It’s time that we began to laugh
And cry and cry and laugh about it all again”
