Almost there!

Hello there lovely people who still visit my blog despite my prolonged absence,

(that’s a long sentence… just imagine that I’m saying “Hi”).

It’s exam season and we all know what that means… unfortunately no more procrastinating, and no more joking around, because procrastinating got me where I am today: crying in a corner wishing I had done my work beforehand.

Now, the good news is: It’s nearly over!
Yes, I still have a couple of weeks to go, but then it’s summer holiday and I’ll be able to read whatever I want and whenever I want *smiles absently while remembering the good old days*. I’ll be having a couple of reviews out here in the near future. Until then: folks, hang in there. We can get through this.

But, I also have something else to say because it’s official now and that means I can share it with the world: I’m going to start another bachelor next year!
But WHUT?! you might think. SAY WHUT?! Yes, I’m going to start another bachelor: Archeology. Why? Because it’s freaking awesome and I want to give it a go while I still can. (I will mention this in a happy moments post when I have the time hihi). I’m so excited!!!! *does happy dance*

See you next time and good luck everyone!

Love,
Cindy

Hiatus

Dear Readers,

Some of you might have noticed that I’ve been absent for a while now.
This is not because I no longer feel like blogging or anything! It’s just that I’ve been crazy busy, and I probably will be for quite some time to come.

I’ll try to post something new in the near future because *tension building moment* I’ve just been to Estonia! So, there will be pictures, and fun-facts, and more pictures 😀 It’s gonna be big.

Please don’t hold it against me if you don’t hear from me in the next couple of weeks (deadlines all around :O)

Best wishes,
a-procrastinating-student-with-regrets

#SATW: Holland: A Food Guide

Absolutely amazing blogpost about the Dutch Cuisine by Anne ^_^ She did a great job in showing the variety of our Dutch food (breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinner, more snacks). If you’re not hungry yet, you will definitely be after reading this post 🙂

Welcome to my second SFATW post! Souvenirs From Across The World (SFATW) is a feature created by Marie@Drizzle & Hurricane Books to get to know each other a little better, focussing especially on where we are all from, and share a bit from our countries, cities, cultures, traditions, writers, and authors while we’re at it.The main goal of Souvenirs From Across The World is to create a link between all bloggers, from everywhere, and to share a bit of the diversity that makes everyone unique on the blogosphere.

This month (October 9th – November 6th)’s theme is:

Okay, to be completely honest here, Dutch dining cuisine isn’t very eventful. The typical Dutch dinner consists of boiled potatoes, boiled vegetables and a piece of fried meat. A little salt added to everything and that’s it mostly. During the winters, people like to mix it up, go crazy, and throw everything (traditional ‘stamppot’…

No Hiatus, just not that active

Dear lovely people,

It is this time of the year again when all students find their way back to school… including me. Because of this I’ve decided not to really stop blogging for now, but simply being less active for the time being.

The reason is very simple: I will always put uni before blogging, so for the time  being I want to figure out what I have to do to get through this year.

Don’t worry! I will not abandon you completely. There will just be less posts the next couple of months. You can expect a detailed report from my visit to Canterbury last week, and before you know it there will you tons of study related posts on my blog!
I will try to read a ‘ normal’ book once in a while, just don’t hold it against me when I am unable to do so.

Have you started school yet? If so: was your first day back into the dark place of education as lovely *cough…sarcasm* as mine?

Good luck to you all! We can get through another year! It’ll be over before we know it ^_^

Love,

Cindy

Tracy Barrett: The Song of Orpheus

30986341

Author: Tracy Barrett
Genre: Short stories/Mythology
Paperback 114 pages, Published by Createspace Independent Publishing Platform on August 1st 2016

Goodreads synopsis
The Song of Orpheus: The Greatest Greek Myths You Never Heard is a funny, adventure-filled collection of wonderfully weird “new” Greek myths. This unforgettable collection spins tales of love and loss, hilariously vain superheroes, ancient robots, untrappable giant foxes, men reborn after being torn apart by dragons, and even the world’s first monkeys. A few of these tales may seem familiar at first, but be prepared for the unexpected. Others are wonderfully strange and puzzling. All of them are entertaining. All of them deserve to be better known.
