I have been thinking about this for a good while and I have come to the conclusion that having a cat (two, to be precise) has been a great help for my fragile mental health. I know most people would think it would more easily be dogs to offer this kind of... emotional support, as… Continue reading How having a cat has helped me deal with anxiety | Mental Health
I know, I know, March isn't over yet. The reason I am wriring this post now is that I started reading Victor Hugo's Notre Dame de Paris last night, and being a big 600-page book there's no way I'm gonna finish it before Sunday. So here we are 🙂 March was a great month for… Continue reading What I read in March | 7 books!
Good evening everyone! I am finally writing this blogpost!

I haven't had time to do anything other than study (and cry) but I wanted to log in to give a little update… Continue reading Stressed and proud: a little update
Yesterday was magical. I won't write much, because I want to include in the post as many photos as possible. At 3.30PM my mom suddenly asked me if I wanted to climb up the hill next to our house and go see the sunset from up there.

December is here and it started in the best way for me. My parents were away for the weekend, and I was planning to just get a lot of sleep and lock myself up in my bedroom to study as much as I could while I was alone. However, I had a sort of breakdown… Continue reading December, alone time & tiny book fairs | Diary #04
Long story short: I have a phobia of doctors. And I need to get my wisdom teeth pulled out. I've known for almost one year, but life (& anxiety) has stopped me all this time.
