Okay, this is officially a long break from writing. It was not my intention, but sometimes life happens I suppose. I thought I would give a small update on what I have been doing since my last post, because quite a few things have happened. Everyday things, mind you, but still.
I have moved back home to Odense and my brother, and it is an absolute pleasure. I have missed both. I ended up living with my parents for one and a half month, due to some coordination with my sister whom is now traveling New Zealand, but now I’m back. In some ways it was a pleasure to be back at the countryside, but there is nothing like living with your own things and on your own terms. And also… I love that I live one minute away from everything, in here.
The main reason I haven’t been writing, I suppose, is the fact that I am writing my thesis. I felt a little behind (I am not) due to the fact that I started it up in England, away from everyone, so I have spent the first official month of my semester, deeply buried in texts. My thesis is about the perception of freedom and identity and I am super stoked about the theme. It does, however, include a lot of theory and it has taken me some time to process.
I have started Cross Fitting again, and I am super stoked! My plan was to do a lot of running, when living on the countryside, but that never happened, so I have done nothing for two months, and for me, that is too long. Now I went twice, and I have a work out tonight. On the up side it is super fun and efficient. On the down side, it still hurts like hell, and will ruin me, but I suppose it’s priorities.
The most amazing thing about being back is the people. When living where I do, it is fast and easy to see everyone, and that is exactly the way I like it. Next weekend I will celebrate my birthday with some friends and the last few weeks people have popped in for coffee and wine and study hours. This is exactly the way a thesis-period should proceed, and I found that it gives me a lot of energy.
Best (and only) buy
I went to a second-hand store with my mom on the countryside. This resulted in two new chairs (the ones we had were falling apart) and a new shelf, which originally was a flower-wagon from a greenhouse. It is super old, it was super dirty, but isn’t it super amazing? I am so happy about it, and my troublesome corner in the living room is now occupied with amazement.
Anyway. Quick update, or something. Now my goal will be not to be this absent again. Have a nice week, and seriously. Let’s hope spring is near.
Lots of love
