Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.

Fall has also always been MY favorite season of the year. But I kind of like the word Autumn more. Don’t ask me why, I don’t know it. It kind of has a nice ring to it (:
The fact that it is my favorite season may or may not have to do something with my birthday, which is in October. Of course the coolest month of the year 😛
Ok, ok I admit it, it might be possible that this is ONE reason.
But there are many, many others!
I love that Autumn is so colorful. The leaves on the trees are changing their color from green into various shades of orange, red and brown. I just love how that looks!
Another reason is that it gets slightly colder again. I mean I like Summer and I want it to be sunny and hot, but all has its limits! And I love that it in Autumn the temperatures go lower bit by bit. We have some sunny days where it is still warm, but then we also have colder days where you just want to cuddle up on the couch with a good book and a cup of tea. And I love that! It´s not wintery freezing, it’s a mixture between warm and cold.
I also love that I can drink more tea again. In Summer I also drink tea..to breakfast at least. But that was it. In Autumn and Winter I can live off tea 😀 I drink tea all the time and I looooove tea! And I miss it all the time in summer!
A fact that I also love about Autumn is the kind of “New-Beginnings” feeling. School start again (in my case University), it´s a fresh, new year and everything is possible.
I also like to buy Autumn-clothers! Like boots and pullovers and scarfs! I could bury myself in this stuff!
My summer holidays have officially started today and I am planning to blog a bit more than I have done so far. But I am pretty busy in July so I hope I can manage it. I am so excited to go on vacation, it´s been so long and I just want to spend some lazy day at the beach reading and enjoying the sun and the sea.
But my vacation time starts in two weeks and I have some other things on my agenda. A few weeks ago I sign up for a photography workshop and it starts today. If you remember I bought a camera about two months ago and was really enthusiastic about it, but I don’t really know anything about photography and cameras. I want to know what I do, so I hope this workshop can help me and I hope I am using my cam more that I have it so far. I am totally going to post some pictures I take during the workshop (:
Other plans for my summer are of course reading (my TBR for the summer), relaxing and I plan on trying a few recipes I found on pinterest. I am going to write a post on this too.
You can check out my pinterest if you want, I really love it because you find ideas and inspiration for everything! And I love to look at this awesome pictures (:
Today was a pretty exhausting day..it was the last day of the second semester in university and I had three exams. I was really nervous about them because it was really much to study..for all three. I didn´t have any clue (at 2/3 exams) how the professors would ask the questions and I was really afraid of two of them. The first one was sadly not so good. I really loved the course throughout the semester and enjoyed it most of the time. It was about the literature of the renaissance period (Shakespeare etc.) and it was really cool, but the exam questions were really mean in my opinion and I hope I am at least positive!
The second one was about the “Construction and Reconstruction of the USA” and it was really much to learn, but I enjoyed this very much as well. It was so interesting and informative and I had really fun studying it. And thank god, this was the good exam. The questions were not mean at all, the professor let us pretty much room to intepret the question and it went really well (at least I think it did xD).
I was really afraid of the third one. It was a Cultural Studies exam and I really thought I would mess that up. But thank god the questions weren´t as hard as I thought they would be, but still..I am not sure if went that well xD With that one I had most difficulties while studying. I just couldn’t get all these theories and people in my head. We also had to write a short essay here and I was so damn afraid that I wouldn’t know how tu analyse the cultural text, but I think I did pretty good.
I really hope that all three went well. I am a person who wants to have good grades especially if I studied hard. I know it´s not all about grades, but it´s nice to have them 😉
So now the second semester is over and I still love it. I learned really much and found new friends and I am definitely looking forward to the next one. But now I want to enjoy a bit of free time as well 😉
