Monday

I had this photo saved on my desktop. I shamelessly stole it from somewhere off the internet. Can’t remember where.
I found it when googling “summer” or something like that the other day. I crave summer! I need it to get warmer and the weather to stop acting like it’s fall. SOON.
And yes, I tend to google all sorts of strange things when I’m supposed to be studying or doing more important things.

Exams in 3&4 days and I’m still aimlessly reading and being generally lazy.
And I’m STILL listening to Florence & the Machine only.

Music to study (or take breaks) by

I have got a little music obsessed over the past couple of weeks. I tend to get like that during exam periods. Often I play the same song over and over again. Here’s some of what I’ve been listening to:

Pascal Pinon
four 15 year old Icelandic girls. Cute music and very promising girls.
I have been particularly obsessed with the song Þú varst ævintýr. The song of this terms exams without a doubt. See it live here.


Hjaltalín – Terminal
Hjaltalins new album Terminal is great. Yes, great!

And then there’s been Bach’s Christmas oratorium, Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker, Bloodgroup (Icelandic electromusic) and lots more. Bach went particularly well with my syntax reading…

Syntax!

This has been my life today and yesterday:


Syntax, coffee, gingerbread cookies and a little bit of chocolate. And study breaks, I’m really good at taking breaks. Actually, I think I spend more time on breaks than studying…

Things you can do late on a Wednesday night

Right now:
Listening to Queen Elizabeth’s christmas speech from 1957.
Yes. Really.
It’s a part of a phonetics assignment I’m doing and I have to listen to a few sentences over and over again.
I’ve now heard Elizabeth say ‘happy christmas’ about 50 times.
Great fun – you should try it!

Pink

Do you know what? I want a pink mascara. Like this one:
clara

This pretty eye belongs to the wonderful Clara. Her blog is such an inspiration.
Yep. This is pretty much what I’ve got to say on this saturday night..
I’ve mostly spent the day ignoring the fact I have an exam on Monday. Haven’t prepared enough as I’ve been visiting family and friends and eating and running around and drinking coffee and laughing. A lot.
And my cousin has invited me over for waffles tomorrow. There just isn’t any time for studying you know…

Hanging out

I have spent the day at home, at my parents house that is, in my most comfortable-at-home outfit. Coffee, a little bit of the Canterbury Tales, Morte Darthur, a bit of Virginia Woolf, homebaked bananabread (by me!), Stieg Larsson and way too much internet.
I love days when you don’t have to go anywhere. It’s necessary once in a while.
