I was browsing through the stack of bloggable files just now and found these photos I’d done with Susan IN FEBRUARY. Why am I posting these in May, and not waiting a few months until the season becomes more relevant? I thought it was rather ironic – these photos were done after a deadly all-nighter for yet another deadline (Feb 8), and can you see, the exhaustion and fatigue is so tattooed in the entire mood and I thought SO accurately represented what I felt yesterday after that final hand-in. To think that was my last ever hand-in as a BA student. I won’t miss it much, to be frank.

Please consider this winter post a parting gift to the wretched cold season I would not like to see again until November at the earliest.

I’ve had a tiny grudge on amber since that time I fell off a tree in our back yard trying to detach an amber resin with an insect trapped in it (mosquito…). Damnit I thought it was prehistoric and would sell for bazillions. What? I was 7, I only got a brain for my 8th birthday and that was totally a few years earlier than my brother. Curious how we all seem to survive from falling off trees and being grated on the pavement rollerblading when young. Now I feel like dying from this thing called stress? This magically powerful thing that doesn’t even have physical form will eventually KILL ME.

Anyway newfound love for amber. Thanks mum, I guess you know now where your necklace disppeared to. Oh the things I do to make you read this blog.

Our family has once again displaced ourselves into another holiday – by car this time, to the fabulous youth city of the south – Kraków (Cracow). Five hours of semi-car-sickness and 3 hours of blind knitting (knitting in complete darkness), we entered the city at 1am, still bright and bustling with nightlife. We have no itinerary for tomorrow or Sunday, and since August 15th* is a national holiday I doubt anything will stay open – but the general idea is to bumm around Old Town and overdose on tourist ice cream then come back to the hotel to watch more grainy CNN.

Actually, I can’t wait to see the capital of culture, not that I haven’t been here… what, 6 times in the past, but I don’t think I was ever old enough to appreciate the beauty of the city. Well then, I shall report back soon with visuals.

*August 15th is a national holiday in Poland and numerous other countries commemorating the Assumption of the Virgin Mary – which to this day I still do not understand as nowhere in the bible does it claim that Mary was lifted up into heaven. Here’s a personal message to Christians of all denominations: It’s best to base your faith on the bible and the bible only, question teachings that are not supported by the Book.

Took a train down to Portsmouth with Ellen to visit the D-Day museum and spend a day at the beach. The weather was a bit too chilly to relax on the pebbles but we did windsurf on the boardwalk. The wind literally pushed us down the far side of the beach where we had to refuel ourselves with cotton candy and icecream to propel back against the monster. I must say, something about cotton candy makes you feel like you have an extra limb and wheels on your toes, or was that just us high on sugar.

British seaside is so lovable, the colours and the smell… feels so good taking a break from the city.

I had my eyes on these MUJI acrylic organizers for a while now – my drawers were starting to look like they were doing their own DIY with all the necklace chains tangling and getting attached to jeans and bracelets snagging and shredding tshirts. I might as well throw in the half-done Rodarte knit dress, maybe it’ll reproduce while it’s in there. What, you didn’t know half-knit dresses were asexual?

Anyway this is me procrastinating. Unfortunately my Prioritizor machine broke down and the warranty expired a week ago so I can’t get that fixed, hot dang. So after blogging I plan to take a bath, then get into bed with the laptop to ‘work’ into the lights of dusk. Yes, I think that’s a good order for this evening.
