It's A Wonderful Life

Can you guys believe it’s Christmas in a week? December just flew on right by and with uni and everything I seem to have had a short (and unplanned) hiatus again. Oh well. So, here’s what I’ve been up to in December:

waiting: For Christmas of course! It’s my favourite time of year and I’m really looking forward to going home for the holidays as well.

reading: Like every year, I’m currently reading Charles Dickens’ Christmas Story. I also just started reading Monsieur Ibrahim et les fleur du coran. In French. Let’s see how that goes.

watching: Last week I went to the cinema and watched Anna Karenina. It was so good (despite what critics say) and the perfect winter movie, with the Russian snow and everything. The day before Christmas I’m also definitely watching It’s A Wonderful Life, that’s a must.

thinking: About maybe opening up a Dawanda shop. I mean, why not, what do you think? And also about sprucing up this blog a little bit, maybe with a new design and some new features. The start of a new year is always the time to dream, right? Nevertheless, I should rather learn for my exams in January and February. Oh well.

making: Lots and lots of Christmas sweets. I want to give them all away for Christmas, so there is still so much to do!

listening: To Christmas music naturally (are you still interested in a mixtape?) and I’m also really into James Vincent McMorrow at the moment.

eating: Too much chocolate, I definitely have to get into dieting/healthy mode after Christmas! We are also having a goodbye/Christmas dinner with all my uni friends tomorrow, which I’m really looking forward to!

What are you all up to guys? I hope you are not too stressed out because of Christmas, have a great day!

’tis the season


It’s finally December, so now it’s allowed to get into the Christmas mood. Are you excited? This weekend it snowed for the first time (perfect timing), although there’s nothing left today. I went to the Christmas market for the first time this year and drank some punch. Today I started listening to some old Christmas favourites (Sufjan Stevens and Frank Sinatra) and opened the first doors on my Advent calendar. I read Auggie Wren’s Christmas Story by Paul Auster. And this afternoon my family is coming to visit and they’re bringing cake and an Advent wreath for my flat. Somehow it feels as if I already did most of the things on my winter to-do list on this first weekend (but there’s  still a lot of fun to do left).

How did you ring in the jolly season?
