It’s reaching the end of 2022, and I’m trying to remember everything that happened this year. My memory is pretty bad, and I struggle to keep track of time and always mix events that happened in completely different times (and places!). … More A year in the life: Review of my 2022
I’ve noticed since I’ve gotten older that the colder months affect me more than they used to. I love autumn and winter, rainy days, cold walks in the woods, long scarves… I spend my summers wishing for days like these, but when the time comes, the cold weather also affects my moods in ways I’m not used to. … More How I’m coping with SAD (Seasonal affective disorder)
I was reading Quiet Girl in a Noisy World by Debbie Tung, and I fell in love with the illustrations of her life as an introvert. She described exactly how I feel, and I related so much to all the situations she illustrated. I enjoyed her book, but what most captured my attention was her introvert’s survival kit because I also have one, and I thought it’d be fun to create my own version. … More Personal entry: An introvert’s survival kit
My memory is terrible. I forget things a second after they happened. I can’t remember people’s names or birthdays. I don’t even know my phone number. And yet, I remember vividly every bad thing that has ever happened to me, no matter how small. … More Reading The Art of Making Memories
It’s only been ten days since the start of March, and I can already tell you this month sucks. I got jaw surgery last week because I was born with a beautifully messed up bone structure that would only get worse with age until it’d be impossible for me to eat and breathe properly. So after saving for years, I finally got surgery. They cut me open, readjusted my jaw, cut a few bones and added a nose job so my face would look symmetrical. … More Personal entry: Getting surgery
Growing up, I always knew I was quiet, more so than my classmates, preferring to read in a corner instead of playing with other kids, but I grew up with Gilmore Girls as my shelter, so I always assumed my behaviour, like Rory’s, was normal, until I got older.

I was so tired in December that I never reviewed my 2021, and now it’s too late to write one. And honestly, 2021 was so similar to 2020 that I struggled to differentiate them. So I’ve decided to focus my energy on 2022 in a desperate belief that this year will be different. … More Personal entry: New habits I’m starting in 2022
I feel betrayed by one of the things I love the most, autumn. I always loved that it was dark before 5 pm in the colder months; I found it cosy and exciting. Now, I just feel trapped. I get up when it’s still dark, go to work and come home when it’s getting darker. … More Personal entry: SAD and other thoughts
I’m writing this post from my parent’s garden in Spain. It’s way too sunny and hot even though there was a big storm just five minutes ago, but that’s Spain in September. I grew up on a small Mediterranean island, where summers are too long, and winters are just mildly cold. I usually come back once a year to show my family I’m still alive. … More Late summer diaries: Two weeks in Spain
I’m excited to turn 27, I know it might not seem like it, but I really am. I’m now part of the almost-30 group. You know the ones, they wear clothes that were fashionable three years ago and are slowly growing a collection of plants. … More Birthday post: Turning 27 and other thoughts
