It's been over a month since I last had a chance to post here, but I'm determined not to leave such a long gap between posts in the future. Since I haven't really been here, I thought I'd just ramble a bit about what I've been up to lately and what has been on my mind.
I have been thinking a lot about how amazing it is to find the right people in your life. People, who you just click with, and even if you haven't spoken for ages, you still feel like you start the conversation right where you left it the last time, having no awkwardness or small talk. I've met up with very different friends lately. A friend, who I hadn't seen in about seven years. A friend, who was my high-school classmate. Friends, who I've recently got to know. And right now I'm really looking forward to talking to a friend, who I only get to talk to on Skype every couple of months, since we live in different cities. If there's such a thing as love at first sight, I feel like we were friends at first sight!
Since I work from home, it's tricky finding new acquaintances, because you're restricted to a small space and are kind of in your comfort zone. I mean, I can literally take my laptop and a Nutella sandwich to bed and this is as comfy as you can get. I think that this is one part of why I truly appreciate the time spent with actual real people, and I've made a promise to myself to try and join a dance or a sports class soon to throw myself into a new environment.
I've also made a promise to focus more on the positive things in life, because these past months have been a little rough for different reasons. And I've actually written down some wonderful things that have happened lately. For example, me and Oliver went to Brighton to celebrate our four years together. We also got to see a Chelsea football match with all of the cheering and singing fans around us. We experienced drive-in cinema for the first time - nothing prettier than young Patrick Swayze with a pink sunset on the background. We had a BBQ at the seaside with a couple of friends and even though it was windy and it rained a tiny bit, we had a great time. I've explored London, I've hiked in Dover and I've gone swimming already! It also was my sister's birthday and although I couldn't be there myself, I managed to send a present to her (and my mom said she teared up a bit, which is a total win).
Now I'm waiting to go home for almost a month and my plane leaves already on the 28th of June! I've made so many plans with family and friends and I just want to see all of the people I love :) I think that I've never made so many active plans for an Estonian summer. I also bought a disposable black and white camera a month ago and I'm about to take it to the shop to develop the photos - really excited to see how they turned out. I'll definitely buy another one to take home with me and to capture some great moments, which will definitely be shared here as well.
So, finally about the photos on this blog post: I fell in love with these pastel colored houses in Canterbury and I think it's such a cute little street corner. The weather has been amazing lately, around 30 degrees and sunny, so it's all about short skirts! I think I last wore a denim mini skirt when I was 14 and I also bought white skinny jeans recently. The 2000s are definitely making a comeback. Since the skirt is really short, I like to pair it with a slouchy tee to make it a little less I'm-going-to-a-party and more like I-can-go-meet-my-grandpa. But I think that's it for this time! Thanks for catching up with me and if you liked the post, let me know in the comments :)
Talk to you soon!
