things I like lately

Kodak Portra 160, Canon EOS 500N

I'm in the middle of my second home exam this semester. The second this semester, but happily the last one - possibly ever. Both my family and I are quite happy about that. Few people put exams on top of their "fun things to do during spring" lists - I'm no exception. Needless to say, I need a little positive distraction in the shape of a happy list. (Lots of repetition of the word "happy" here; that's one of the things I'm writing my exam about; the use of repetition in theatre language *nerd emoji*.) Here we go (it has been a while):

- Scenes Unseen: The Summer of '78 (via Stephanie's stories on Instagram)
- my long sleeve (of course! otherwise my arms get cold when they are outside the duvet) pyjamas is coming to pieces, so I'm looking for a replacement, for example this, this (both a little pricey though), this, this or this
- this animal poster (via A Cup of Jo)
- this new IKEA shelf
- the smell of freshly mowed lawns
- the sound of bird song in the morning
- green smoothies with kale, spinach, avocado, banana and pineapple juice instead of apple juice
- looking forward to binging on season two of "A Handmaid's Tale" once I've finished my home exam
- snacking on cherry tomatoes and walnuts (together in mouthfuls)
- our new sandwich maker (elegantly designed by Konstantin Grcic for Krups) - because grilled ham and cheese sandwiches *praise hands emoji*! (home exam craving!)
- the vending machines at the university for providing chocolate - because motivation during exam writing

- - -

Things I don't like lately

- the time consuming aspect of a home exam
- the lack of (desperately needed) exercise
- the never ending sugar craving

  1. So much joy to read a list "things i like lately" again!
    I love my Hanro night dresses, the cotton is so soft and even after all those years I have them they still look good. They are a little pricey but last many years.
