I'm not much of a summer-person. I've never liked the warmth and the rush and the way everyone tries to live a whole year's worth in a month or two. Also, every summer I'm somehow forgotten. 

This summer my best friend moved to Italy. She met a lovely Italian man on Tinder and three months later he whisked her away. 
I was naturally a bit heartbroken as I heard the news. To make me happy again, Charming brought me a present. He does that, gives me things to make me smile. 
I'm not used to that. I'm in absolute shock over the fact that someone likes me enough to care about my happiness. 

The present was my first Lumous. We went to the pre-party on Thursday, saw most of the bands, and survived The End. 
After, we were hungover for three days. 
Best. Party. Ever. 

Also,  I've treated myself to a new wallet, which is a bit on the large side but well suited for my taste. I got it on eBay for, like, 7€ so I'm kinda waiting for it to fall apart at any given moment. 

It was my Birthday in June, and Mom got me a summer hat. I decorated it with a tulle bow, and I've gotten around to wearing it once. 
... I hardly ever go out when the sun is out and sun hats look a bit silly during the night. 
The hat is pretty, though, and it'll keep until next summer. 

Mom also gave me a nail varnish in a shade of red I'm a bit apprehensive about. It looks nice in the bottle, but when worn, it seems to change shades along with light. It's purple in natural light, and red in artificial light. This makes choosing lipstick super-hard. 
... black?

I haven't been working much, since Charming had July off and wanted to spend most of his time with me (another little detail that makes me pinch both him and myself to make certain we're stuck in the same dream). I did start a new cardigan, which I'm hoping to turn into a pattern. It features chevron lace, which is a new acquaintance for me. This is going to be a more challenging pattern, so it'll have to be tested before publishing. 
... a long project, in other words. 

I have also been playing Bioshock. Charming introduced me to the game, and I played through the first part with, what, three breaks, and now I'm in the middle of the second part. 
We've met some of his friends both on purpose and by accident, and every time he's told them what I did all day (played Bioshock) they, especially girls, look at me like I've escaped a different planet. 
"What, you play, do you, like, actually like it, you can't like that!" 
... yes, I like playing, and I enjoy shooters. Deal with it. 

 I've also made a pink EmoBunny. She's currently homeless, and would like to be adopted. 
She's gotten one of her eyes to fall off a bit, has cuts on her arms, and carries a noose to hang herself with. 
Poor thing. 

I'll try to write a bit more in the future. I've managed to minimize stress in my life (as much as I can at this point, anyway), and now I actually feel like writing. I'm starting to fall back into my "1000 words in the morning" -routine again, and it feels really good. 
So, until next time!



  1. Glad you saw alumnus and wrote! Charming sounds charming! One of my boyfriend's friends from school married a Japanese lady and moved to Japan. But we all saw that coming as he's obsessed with Japan!
