This week. #6











In the past three weeks... 

I ate the first peach of the season.

I made two potholders for my Grandma, who loved them and told me they were too pretty to use but shortly after proceeded to put away all her other potholders and replaced them with the ones I made her.

I went on a hike in memory of my uncle, on the same mountain where he slipped and fell last November.

I found a little bird on my balcony one day, and realized how despite the fact that I love nature and animals so much, I am completely clueless when it comes to rescuing them.  

I learnt about the life of my grandma's best friend. One night after dinner my mother started talking about her; she told us that after the war she traveled alone all the way to Canada to meet her husband who was working there; she told us the reason why they didn't have kids; and that she lost a brother when she was really young. I have known this woman all my life yet I really didn't know anything about her.

I got the top mark on an exam and it was wonderful! I think it was one of my favourite subjects this far, and the exam in itself was very challenging and rewarding. The morning after I finished knitting my grey sweater while watching Call Me By Your Name and it was AMAZING. 

I started doing some physical therapy for my tendonitis and it's going much better.

I celebrated my brother 18th birthday - he's already started having driving lessons and it's making me feel very emotional and very, very old.


This week... 

We found a little cat in our courtyard. He looks like he's in very good health, and he's very playful and affectionate. We can't keep him, so we are trying to find him a family but I don't think it's going to be easy. I have been taking so many study breaks to go in the courtyard to play with him!

I bought tickets for the university gala (ball? prom? however you want to call it), just because it's my last year and I never went before. Also, because my best friend who is coming back to Italy from Australia only a few days prior decided she wants to come as well! It's going to be super weird, considering it's going to be the first time I will see her in a year and I have an exam the same morning. 

I finished knitting one single sock (minus the heel, which I will add later on) and I have almost finished making a sleeveless top out of some inexpensive cotton yarn. It was my first experience with lace and I didn't find it too difficult, only it required more attention than I can currently give and so there are a few errors here and there. The yarn is bright yellow and I'm thinking of maybe dying it blue, so I can get more wear out of it. 

I'm studying for my next exam which is in 10 days. I can feel my energy slowly diminishing every day as the weather gets hotter. I honestly have no clue how this exam will go, it depends on how much effort I can put towards studying in the next 10 days.
