My life right now is perfectly monotonous in the nicest way possible. For the first time I relish the routine. I go to work and sometimes I get to read really interesting books, other times they bore me to death. I go to the climbing gym on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I nap on weekend afternoons.

I have decided to write my MA thesis and after a long a difficult battle, I was allowed to pick F. Scott Fitzgerald. So now I am reading about the Jazz Age, about those beautiful and roaring twenties and I can’t get enough of that. I would have been such a rebellious flapper! (Is that a redundancy?)

Mum visited me last weekend. Everything was fine and dandy until the last day of her stay, when she noticed that I had taken down the icons. Of course we got into a fight and she was mad at me and I yelled at her and we barely talked after that. I guess it’s really difficult for her to have a kid who is completely different from her, but it’s also hard on me to see that she still wants me to change, to be more like her and less like me. No matter how much I try to explain to her that I love my life how it is, she still thinks she knows better. Mums…

My dreams right now are small and doable: I am looking forward to hanging on my exercise board, maybe buying a cheap bike for work and writing my thesis. Yeah, this spring will be great!

    I love your cat (and I know I am repeating myself :)) Congrats for your great topic. It is so uplifting to be able to write about what you enjoy. My thesis was on literature and Jeanette Winterson and how happy I was when the professor congratulated me for creativity and courage :))

    @Ally: I think it’s wonderful because I read only what interests me and since I’m so fascinated with that period this paper doesn’t seem like work at all :)

    Furios chiar… pentru ca nu mai am suflet :)

    Noah, îmi pare rău, dar chiar nu te înțeleg :))

    Eh… poti fi si mai directa de-atat — poti sa spui ca bat campii.

    Desi o sa incerc sa iti explic.

    Ce ar trebui cineva sa simta atunci cand dispare cel mai de pret lucru pe care il are?

    Abia acum pot să spun liniștită că bați câmpii.
