project 365: 026-032

 026 I spent most of the day watching Holocaust documents. I don't want to say I enjoyed myself as that doesn't sound appropriate, but it wasn't completely miserable. I do love a good documentary, and I love it even more that as a history student I can pretend that this is studying. My Holocaust-filled day was not only because of the memorial day or 70th anniversary of Auschwitz liberation, but also because I'm the biggest Hitchcock fan and found out that the documentary he'd worked on in 1945 was finally available for watching in most places. I really would recommend it, it's called "Holocaust: Night Will Fall". Not that you should watch it because of Hitchcock, but out of respect for the actual people and to remember them and what they had to go through. And to educate yourself if you're an ignorant wee one.

 027 The fact that this day's photo is of my cereal probably tells you how interesting a day I had..

 028 I was only going to take this one to moan about how much I'm struggling with the length of my hair at the moment. Then I ended up taking outfit photos, that I'll try and post later in the week! But really, my hair's in such an awkward growing-out stage and I really don't like it. Over-grown pixie is surely one of the worst hairstyles. It doesn't look that bad in the photo, but it really is such an awkward length. I can pin it all up but there's still a couple of stubborn little strands that enrage me. And if I don't pin it up, it's just worse. Woe is me.

 029 A late nameday card from my mum arrived this week, so I taped in on my wall. I have quite a collection of pretty Moomin cards.. And after the #crazybloggers chat I was going to do my uni reading, until I realized I had printed off the documents of the previous seminar. Honestly don't know how I manage to do these things. Do I even need to mention the time I went to uni only to print off some stuff, came back home and realized I had printed blank paper? Unbelievably smart I am. I still managed to go through all the documents online (I just prefer to have them in paper form so that I can better make notes and highlight things) and had (another) g&t.

 030 A day of studying, blogging and catching up on a few TV shows. (I was also pleased with my matching dress+lipstick.)

 031 I had some little repair-sewing to do!

032 A new month in my Moomin calendar! (Are other people as happy about getting to turn the page of a calendar at the start of each month, or am I just really easily entertained/satisfied?) And I had carbonara and a g&t for tea. This carbonara is one of my favourite things to make and the g&t is slowly becoming a routine in the evening.

How was your week?
