Some major things happened in 2013, education-wise: I passed 10 out of 11 remaining exams, including the hardest one yet, finished all practical work - and no more lectures for me! I only need to pass one more exam before I can finally graduate. In February I applied to the Erasmus exchange programme - and got the country I wanted! But more on that later.
I survived one year of hooping lessons. And then I bought a slackline, because I obviously needed one and because I was obviously meant to be a circus performer. Money well spent! My hoop and slackline are both pink and cannot be used simultaneously.
No holidays for me in 2013, partly because I had to save money to go live abroad and partly because I had no time and/or people to go with. Instead, I spent a week at an international students' camp, which was 10 minutes away from where I live. Yay!
I revived and renamed this blog and I think it looks rather nice. If only I had all the time in the world to bake, photograph and write about everything that comes into my head. I also threw my first adult birthday mini-party and it was a success.
In October, I finally became a fifth year student and I started my four-month internship at a hospital pharmacy. In short, I got to wear a uniform that I didn't have to wash by myself, wear Crocs all day without anyone judging me (I hope!?), and spend three hours a day commuting to work and back, something I have always said I would never do. I have learned my lesson: never say never. But I do hope that my next job will be closer to where I will be living at that time, because once you spend eight hours at work, there's only so much time left in the day and I know I don't want to spend it on the road.
The internship ended a week and a half ago, so now I'm free as a bird - almost. I still have a few workshops to attend, but they're not as time consuming as work was. I love having those extra 11 hours a day all to myself.
So, what's about to come, now that I finally have all this free time? Well, there's a freaking coconut cake! A rose cake! Lots of apple-y desserts (who doesn't love apples?), because why should you bake in December only? Other winter months deserve to be survived as well. Seriously, though, aren't January and February the weirdest months ever? It's like falling from paradise (December! Food! Presents! Christmas lights! Obesity!) into THIS. It doesn't have to be that way. Let's all eat some more.
Oh, and one last thing. I'm moving to London! Soon.
