Petals on my sheets

I love the feeling of skimming through old sheet music and looking for some new classic music to play on my piano. Music is basically the best thing that has ever existed. What would life be without songs and music?

Beloved

This song makes me feel nostalgic and think of my near and dear ones. What could some of them possibly be doing right now in this moment? Are they sleeping? Or are they working hard?

It also gives me hope about the future of the world and reminds me of why I want to succeed in school. Hearing it feels like I’m at the ocean, listening to the sound of the crying waves.

Yes, this is what all of Yiruma’s music does to me! Who are your favorite musician?

What to do on cold days

“Kindness is like snow. It beautifies everything it covers.”

– Kahlil Gibran

The days are getting shorter and colder. All I want to do is staying inside, cuddle up under thick blankets and never get out of my bed. But sometimes, when I am not sleeping, I usually love doing things that aren’t school related. Here are some following things you can do inside when it’s getting too cold to be outdoors:

  • Read a nice book! I am right now reading “To Kill a Mockingbird”, a modern classic written by Harper Lee.
  • Watch a great movie. Although it’s no longer available on Netflix, I loved watching “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” with my idol Audrey Hepburn (who is an intelligent, classy, elegant and beautiful lady) as the social butterfly Holly Golightly. It is based on a book with the same name, written by Truman Capote, a friend of Harper Lee.
  • Listen to your favourite music.
  • Do some Christmas themed handcrafting or DIY-projects.
  • Talk or play games with your family and siblings. I love playing cards with my cousins.
  • Do some draw challenges. Like trying out different drawing types.
  • Bake some delicious cookies and cakes to make you feel warmer inside.
  • Call a friend or relative you haven’t talked to for a long time.
  • Try do some workout or yoga exercises.
  • Meditate

By the day, the snow has finally arrived here in Lund. I woke up this week to a beautiful snow covered view, and for the first time this year, the joy of Christmas finally came to me. Just wonderful! Have a nice Thursday everyone!

 

Floral pancakes

As a terrible cook (I’m not as talented as my mother and my younger brother), my happiness just blossomed (like my floral porcelain plate) when I managed to make the easiest pancakes ever. Here is the recipe for basic and delicious pancakes:

What you will need (for 20 mini pancakes):

  • 2,5 dl flour
  • 2-5 tbsp sugar
  • 1-2 tsp baking powder
  • One pinch of salt (if you like it)
  • 2,5 dl milk
  • 1 egg
  • Melted butter or oil

How you make the pancakes:

  1. Mix the dry ingredients together
  2. Pour in the milk and continue mixing until it gets lean and smooth
  3. Crack in the egg and continue mixing again
  4. Pour in the melted butter or oil
  5. Heat a lightly oiled pan and pour in one tbsp for every pancake
  6. Serve with a wonderful plate
  7. Eat it with great appetite!

The Mockingbird

Good evening, friends!

A couple of years ago, I watched “To Kill a Mockingbird” starring great Gregory Peck (an actor who also starred with the amazing Audrey Hepburn in “Roman Holiday”) in the leading role. It touched both me and my younger brother when we were sitting in front of the TV and made us think and discuss about it for a couple of days.

I am now lying in my bed, reading one of the greatest books I’ve ever touched. A thing I really regret is why I didn’t read this one earlier. Beautiful, moving and important thoughts written in many great ways by Harper Lee, the author of the book. I have to continue reading now before the night is too late.

Goodnight!
