I went shopping with my mom today and I was so close to give in several times. But I didn’t! Bye beautiful boots, bye warm and soft {hobo} jacket, bye pretty cushion covers and I could go on like this the whole evening. I did some restocking instead and bought acrylic paints, gloss varnish medium and a masking tape. Even though I did a pretty good job keeping my coins in my purse today, I can’t promise they will remain staying there tomorrow at the flea market.

My Birthday is next month and even though I only wish for money so I can buy a new computer I’ve got a good excuse to buy myself a present! A present that always makes me happy is a good book. You can’t imagine how many books are listed on my wish list but here are my top five. 
1. 'Pictures' by Tim Walker {Picture: weheartit}
2. 'Brooklyn Makers: Food, Design, Craft, and Other Scenes from a Tactile Life' by Jennifer Causey {Picture:}
3. 'Story Teller' by Tim Walker and Ruth Ansel {Picture:}
4. 'Making an Impression: Designing & Creating Artful Stamps' by Geninne D. Zlatkis {Picture:}
5. 'Introducing: Visual Identities for Small Businesses' by Klanten. R {Picture -}

I’m currently reading one of my schoolbooks, ’29 Spørgsmål - En moderne retorik til planlægning af kommunikation’ by Jan Krag Jacobsen, which is actually quite interesting. Obviously, since I’m reading it when school hasn’t even started yet and I still have vacation. I just wanted to skim through it to get an idea what I’m getting myself into and suddenly I found myself reading it thoughtfully while taking notes. One of the reasons I find the book interesting is because it uses many examples and scenarios from the television- and film world. And that was what I occupied myself with before. Hey, they even mention David Lynch’s name who is my favourite director. If that is not enough to get all exited about there is also a chapter where they mention the narrative model of Aristotle including ‘tragedy’ and ‘comedy’. First of all I can once again draw the berettermodel {in English?} and afterwards talk about the myths of Medea and Oedipus. A bit of Lynch and classical studies doesn't harm anyone! Now I’ll put ‘The Lumineers’ on repeat, drink some tea and finish this book :-)

Like being at the library, a flea market or my favourite bookstore, I can stay at IKEA for ages. But I actually didn’t do it today and I didn’t even go crazy as I usually do. Crazy meaning buying too much stuff I’ll never use. Here are some bits I bought.

These past few days has really been enjoyable. My sister and her family, well, my family as well, was here in Denmark for four days. They live in England which isn’t far but we are always too busy with work or school to meet up. So it was nice to finally see them again and catch up! We talked, laughed and saw some beautiful attractions.

I’m giving a lot of second chances lately. This time I’ve decided to get fit again. It’s always a good idea to exercise and since I got my acceptance letter I finally gave it go. You see, when I was in gymnasiet I was constantly tired. Zero energy, drained and completely worn out. I almost had headaches every day because I was sitting down all day, taking notes, concentrating, reading, doing homework and not eating much. I've learned my lesson. This time I’ll remember to eat more regularly. I’ll bring loads of delicious snacks with me all the time. When I come home from school I’ll work out before doing any school assignments. It doesn’t mean I have to work out for an hour or more everyday. Simple exercises can do the drill. If I just can get some movement every day that would be cool. And I got myself a personal trainer - my boyfriend! He’s a tiny bit tough on me but it keeps me motivated. We live just next to Bagsværd Stadium so it's perfect. Today we went jogging, running and rope skipping. I’m definitely out of shape but I’ll be on track again!

I decided to go for a ride on my bicycle today. I know! Me? Ride a bike?! Those who know me, they know one of the things that can get me anxious and panicky is to ride a bike. For God’s sake, I cried my balls out when my dad forced me to ride my bike when I was younger. The last time I sat on my saddle, an old woman drove into me. With her car. That wasn’t fun at all. It happened in year 2011. Since then I haven’t touched my lowrider. You see, I just don’t cope well on traffic. But the past few days I suddenly wanted to ride my bike again. Today I did it! I decided to go for a ride to my new school so I could see how far it was from home. It wasn’t that bad. Maybe riding my bike to school should be my new thing. Maybe.

I didn’t get my acceptance letter the day before yesterday like everyone else did. Everything is fine though. I called the academy yesterday and they said that I got accepted and if I don’t get my letter today I should call them back again. I got my acceptance letter today so all is good! I have confirmed the institution that I want the spot so now it's official. I’m looking forward to begin studying again. I'll be studying Multimedia Design in Copenhagen Business Academy.
