This post recaps my month, from personal life to books I’ve read & bought, movies and TV shows I’ve seen and links to posts that interest me.
We celebrated my sister’s birthday and it was a surprise party! I first made a Tangled inspired cake to pay back her awesome HP cake for my birthday. It wasn’t as good as hers, but she loved it anyway and it tasted pretty good! I am too ashamed to share a picture though, haha. We had a great evening filled with chatter and, again, board games. I had to miss the book club sleepover though, which was a little sad, but I am very close with my sister so I wanted to stay through the whole party.
We also had days with warm, sunny weather, so when I visited my grandparents I took the opportunity to sit in the sun on their balcony with a good book. Another day I went out for dinner with my boyfriend and we made an evening walk at the beach with some ice cream. I helped my sister out with her thesis and we ordered some sushi, yum. I went to the beach again today with my boyfriend to visit a fair, but we went to the wrong side and ended up eating poffertjes instead. Delicious! I also celebrated my grandfather’s 79st birthday and I had a great book club meeting despite the terrible service.
An exciting thing is going to happen, but it also leaves me with mixed feelings. Like you might know, I unofficially live together with my boyfriend. He has a (small) apartment and I always sleep over there. We are going to look for a place together once I graduate and find a job (hopefully this year too.). My stuff is still at my parents house, but we are going to start moving my sister to my room. I have/had the biggest one in the house and she needs the space now that she has a boyfriend. It feels strange to lose my place in the house I grew up in. I finally seem to realize that it’s another step I’m going to take – and I’m not going to lie, it’s great, but also a bit scary.
Internship: I crossed of intensive care, fluors, cerebrospinal fluid and blood culture. IC and blood culture are definitely two of my favorite topics so far! It’s a shame both were only for one week, but now I’m off to specials, which means sperm reprocessing, fungi and molecular diagnostics. I’ve also been helping out with some immunology tests. It’s weird to realize that I’m already half way. I’m having such a good time I hardly notice how fast it goes.
