#100happydays: day 58

It was the first day with Winter time and I woke up at an extremely early hour for a Sunday, but that meant having more time to enjoy, rest, and do what I really want to do. So yeah, early bird does get the worm.

Today was one of the days I like… to do nothing. It was cloudy, grey, and cold… yet I did go out :). I went with my sister to an activity of her job and later, we went out for burgers at El Corral, a burger joint from Colombia. Probably one of the best ones in mall food courts (and if you’re curious… yes, I did have the 340g burger).

Day 53 I celebrated Earth day by bringing a mint plant to my workplace. I love Mint tea (a basic staple of my journey in the Netherlands) and I felt like my workplace could use some green 🙂 I take care mostly of it. Day 53: I had a Doctor’s appointment and after that, I took a long walk around my favourite district. I forgot to take pictures, but the walk was really needed and I enjoyed it. Day 54:…

Day 52: So, most of the days have become harder to pick out a special thing that happened during the day. But I’ve decided to share something I found at a Facebook page called European Observatory for Plurilingualism. Ok, I must make a confession. I have giggled at someone’s broken language-I-know, and probably because of innuendo or something like that. Yet, I must say, I shouldn’t do that. I do have a strong accent while speaking English. I found this…

Day 50: It’s the hump day for this challenge, so I decided to try an alternative way to post for this blog (i.e. through my iPad) I went to my grandparents’ and had the typical: food-sleep-food on repeat. I had empanadas for lunch and went to the small garden and took pictures of the small (yet spicy) rocoto pepper plant there. They are delicious, I must say. Day 51: The Easter bunny came in rather late and had my delicious…

Back on track, finally 😀 Day 46: I like this song from Jake Bugg a lot. Day 47: Happiness is… finding things you might have forgotten, like my favourite stationery items on my drawers. Day 48: I am a foodie and I like to cook a lot. So, out of the blue, I decided to finally learn how to cook US-style pancakes because I missed them so much (I only have them during holidays abroad). Thus, it was my motivation…

Day 45 More good news on my way: I revamped part of my desk and brought more motivating objects 🙂 I went to (yet another’s) doctor’s appointment, and this was the number I got in order to pay for it. Despite being a “bad” sign, it went well :D.

Day 42: It was a really exhausting day, as I am doing my yearly health check up and I started with the ophthalmologist. My eyes were really fine and my shortsight is under control 🙂 . However, the moment I put my head on my pillow, I fell asleep. Day 43: My friend Daniela got married! It was a really touching ceremony, with lots of special meanings for people who knew the couple well. I was seated with my other…

Besides having to wake up later than usual (due to picking up my new passport and ID card), I was visiting AjamMC, a site about Perso-Iranian high & low culture and I ran into this grafitti by Kaboos, in Mashhad, Iran.
