Remember, remember, this is now, and now, and now. Live it, feel it, cling to it. I want to become acutely aware of all I’ve taken for granted.




Hey lovely creatures!!

It's been a while and I am not going to bore you with the same
"i don't have much free time" excuse anymore (although it's true!).
One more week in work and then holidays!!!!!
Also, I have many little daily things to post here from all
the months i wasn't such a good / active blogger.
They might feel a little out of season but who cares?!

Oh when your friends have awesome bathroom lighting!! :D


I work out everyday, i walk almost 16 kilometres every week, 
i eat in moderation, i am trying to sleep well and above all i drink a lot of water.
Since 2013, my life has been a great journey.


Among other things i've changed in my life, i decide to become a blood donor.
And i am one for 3 years now. I used to be scared of the whole process 
(i still don't like needles) and my ferritin levels are a bit low. But i had my doctor's approval so i 
donate blood at least once a year (watch out people my blood is out there!!) 

And it feels so good. The thought that my blood might save someone's life overcomes any 
stupid fear i might have. You donate blood, you help others, you help yourself.

Blood cannot be manufactured, the only way to supply 
this need is via generous blood donors. It’s certainly an altruistic act… but it’s also one 
that offers important yet little-discussed benefits. x


Now to some book news -- Memoirs by Yannis Makriyannis.
A greek book i wanted for so long, written by the General Yannis Makriyannis x
who was a Greek merchant, military officer, politician and author.And as always, 
the best part is that i founded it for only two euros!!



 Y. Makrygiannis (1797–1864), born Ioannis Triantaphyllos
 joined the Greek struggle for independence, achieving the rank of general and leading 
his men to notable victories. Following Greek independence, he had a tumultuous 
public career, playing a prominent part in the granting of the first Constitution 
of the Kingdom of Greece and later being sentenced to death and pardoned.


Despite his important contributions to the political life of the early Greek state, 
general Makriyannis is mostly remembered for his Memoirs. Aside from being a source of 
historical and cultural information about the period, this work has also been called a 
"monument of Modern Greek literature", as it is written in pure Demotic Greek. Indeed, 
its literary quality led Nobel laureate Giorgos Seferis to call Makriyannis one of the greatest 
masters of Modern Greek prose.


An other add to my ring collection. 
This is a very fancy spider and it came to my life for only one euro. 


Two TV series.
Sleepy Hollow and Galavant.

  1. Those strawberries look delicious... Good thing I bought some fresh, local ones today!
    I'm always jealous of your spider rings~ I had two that broke (both of the same model; I tend to buy cheap rings on eBay), one that I lost, and now I have one left (in the pictures I sent you, if you can see it). Apparently I'm rather clumsy with my rings... Oops.
    Good job finding that book!!
