It has been a while, but these weeks have been kind of crazy, a lot of work and no free time… at all… The Weekly Small Pleasures was created by A New Life Wandering. Here are some tiny pleasures of the last week or so…
I realize I say books a lot… a LOT! But hey, Amazon delivery day is always a pleasure… 😀
Apart from the crazy amount of work I had, I also had to find a new room to rent and pack up all of my stuff… it was stressful, but there was a kind of good feeling when I saw the boxes and bags all lined up.
3. I turned 31
It was my birthday this last week! And although I turned 31, and spent the day in front of my PC at home working like a maniac, it was nice! No cake or candles, not a single soul all day (I hate you NETWORK!), but I turned 31… the realization that I’m a lot closer to 40 than to 20 hit me like a rock, but hey, it’s all good…
4. Dad came to visit =)
Well, I’ve been in Barcelona for almost 3 years, and this was the first time my father came to see me. He came by car to take most of my stuff away, because there was no way I was going to move all that stuff that I didn’t need anymore, anywhere else. So he came here and it was great! 😀 We took a day to walk around Barcelona and see all the important spots… we also walked almost 20 km. Then we packed the car and they were off, and I was left with pain all over my body from walking and carrying boxes…
5. Check-in DONE!
It’s always a moment of pure joy when I open my e-mail to find a notification that my Check-in is now open. I travel on Friday, I’m going home for a week to spend a few days with my mom and 3 nephews, so I’m really looking forward to it.
6. Rainbow Rowell favorited my tweet!!!
It made me extremely happy! That’s all I’m gonna say…
7. New Simon/Blue e-mails
Because it’s Pride Month, there’s this great thing going on, you can read here. But basicly, if you buy a shirt, contribute or simply share the link, and then email Becky Albertalli (author of the amazing Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda), she will reply to you with some deleted emails between Simon and Blue that are just the most adorable thing. And when the author of one of your favorite books starts an email with your name and finishes with “Love, Becky”, it’s kind of impossible not to be crazy happy, right?
