Project 365 - Week 9

I've skipped one week of publishing the photos on my blog, but they're all on my flickr photostream.
Here they are.
I am not feeling in a blog attitute right now, I feel like I am doing a big mess in here, I've to figure out what I want to do with this, maybe I'll start a new, better defined project anywhere soon.
Who knows..

First day of freedom involved straightening my hair, using creams and lotions, taking a long shower, seeing Roberto for a drink and eat something together.

Day two of freedom involved this cream, the sun, some magazines, some crafty ideas, baking bread and journaling =)

A day for painting, having fun with my nephew, blogging and seeing a friend from High School. Fun.
He loves cupcakes, did you notice?

Live the Language


I am a huge fan of language, IPA (or API) alphabet, phonetics; I would love to learn every language of the world if I could have a super power.
My friends and I often, or better, always, analyse translations, choices of translators, mistakes and good ideas. That is probably one of the reasons I always feel insecure when writing something in English, especially here on my blog. I don't want to make stupid mistakes and sound akward.

I was so happy when I saw the commercial for EF Language Schools that was posted on Black Eiffel. I definitely felt inspired and immediately looked up the other videos of the series.
Of course I will share the video which is most inspiring to me: London.

EF - Live The Language - London from Albin Holmqvist on Vimeo.

Please, take the time to watch the other videos as well.
I like the concept and the combination of wonderful images, lovely scenes, words and IPA alphabet, just to show you what a wonderful thing language is.

I would watch it over and over again. Seriously.



Happy Birthday to the person who is always ready to help me and listen to my rants. The person who is always doing his best and nevertheless feels as if he's doing something wrong. The person who accepts that I want lo leave and travel, and wants to come with me. Who understands when I'm in need of cuddles. Who does anything to make me smile and make me happy.

Happy 24th Birthday Roberto
I love you, Ti amo!
