✿ What else I've been up to this week ✿

1. Bout of Books. I'm so pleased that I managed to sign up before it was too late, because I've been missing out so many BoB/read-a-thons lately. It was really nice to curl up with a book for the whole day and just enjoy books and me-time. At the moment, I've read four books, but I'm trying to read a short book today to reach five in total.

2. Flat all to myself. My flatmate left for a holiday, so the flat will be all mine for a couple of weeks - yay! Even though I miss my flatmate and her goofy personality, it's still nice to do whatever you want and not to worry about if I'm bothering the other person living here.

3. Planning. Planning. I'm going to start grad school in autumn and the university is at a completely new location for me (never been there before), so I have quite a bit of planning ahead of me. To find a new flat, to organise how to move all my stuff (i.e. books), maybe try to contact my new classmates, book flights, etc etc. I'm not stressed and I plan not to get stressed at all, so that's why I've started to do plan so early.

  1. Great job on bout of Books! I liked your Top Ten list this week, I was fortunate enough to meet George Martin at a book signing a few years back. He was very cool.

    Have a great week.

    1. Oh lucky you! How was it? If I ever get a chance to meet him, I'll probably be so starstruck that I won't be able to get a word out of my mouth :)


You can't see me, but I'm totally doing my happy dance as I read your comment!
