Hello, I’m gonna join the last couple of weeks, because nothing significant went on on the first one…
1. Phinally Done
During the week of 11 to 17 of May, two of my colleagues and friends defended their PhD Dissertations, one in Coimbra and the other one here in Barcelona. I’m beyond proud of both of them and so very happy. It was the perfect beginning and end of that week.
2. “Bacalhau com todos”
This might not seem like a big deal, but when you’re away from home, it’s so nice to eat typical food! In Portugal we use a lot of cod fish, but we use it dried and salted and not fresh like most countries. So this (cod fish, egg, vegetables, potato and chickpea) is my traditional Christmas food.
Going twice to the cinema in a week. This is not that abnormal for me, but it hadn’t happened in a while. Wednesday I decided to take advantage of the cheapest day to see a movie, a spanish movie, that I had wanted to see for a while but was already only in selected theaters. So I needed to go to Barcelona and took advantage of that…
4. And more movies
The second movie I saw was on Friday, my “rest” day! I was totally alone watching Pitch Perfect 2 and it was awesome!
5. Amazon and books
Thursday I came home and found my Amazon box!!!! Yupppiiiii! Unboxing books is the best thing ever. 😀
6. English Bookstores?!
Speaking of books, after a little research online, I found out that there are 2 English bookstores in Barcelona!!! I’m so HAPPY!!!!
7. Magnificent Reads
I finished 4 books in the past 2 weeks, but two I LOVED! Eleanor & Park (Rainbow Rowell) and Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda (Becky Albertalli) are awesome, gorgeous books and I never want to let them go.
