An Evil Nymph.
An Evil Nymph.
I’ve been looking forward to this semester for the past five – even though I’m going to get my Master’s as well and that’ll be another 4 semesters – but this will be the end of my Bachelor’s degree years!
I must admit that it’s been overwhelming, more than I thought it would be. No doubt that nothing in life comes easily, but I wasn’t exactly prepared for the workload.
(Wait. Isn’t that the books Den read to his future nieces?)
Last night I had a chat with Mette about my not-so-impressive ability to handle stress. She made it clear that I had to put myself first instead of everybody else – something that I tend to do at all times; if people around me are happy, I’m happy. It should be the other way around.
I heard what she was saying, but I wasn’t listening (sorry, Mette). I was really too focused on listening to my pulse that I could hear so clearly in my ear – bum bum bum.
Then she sent me this.
Always, ALWAYS remember yourselves, Optimists!
Thank you for being there, Mette.
Want to have your drawing featured, too? Want to read one of our stories before everybody else and illustrate it? Now’s your chance!

Today I’m going to tell you about someone that I appreciate very much. She’s always there for me, ready to listen. She’s been there for the past 9-10 years, but I don’t really feel that I show her enough appreciation. I’m going to change that.
Thursday was the day for my thesis hand-in at the University. Thursday was also the day the train staff chose to go on strike.
So I rang Malou:
She’s been listening to me complain for the past three weeks. Which is why she is frowning and looks tired.
But she’s there. She’s always there.
Today, go tell someone how much you appreciate them. Isn’t that what the Holidays are for?
