In case of emergency

The sunny season of beer is here!
In case you happen to be in need of an emergency idea for opening a bottle of the blissful beverage:

Know the lyrics

When I am happy, I often sing along the songs that are playing.
Unfortunately, I sound pretty much like this:

Being positive: 1

Being positive: smiling when your flip-flop's strap comes off, because there's sand-from-last-summer's-vacation coming out of the hole on the sole.

Coffee with karamell

Today the coffee tastes better because it is accompanied by cookies from my awesome brother.

Time and disorder

Ah, I did not know that there was a formula for what happened to me as a result of extending the thesis-writing period..

The AD (After the Deadline) period has began!

At about 9 a.m. I crawled into bed. The excitement of ending my own hell and the smile that was framing my face did not let me fall asleep for some time.

At 12 I was already up, checking my messages for news from Sylvie. I found this picture:

.. and a few words telling me: "CONGRATULATIONS, Katya! You have successfully handed in your Master's thesis!"

From that moment on, the day was filled with lots of sun, the wide smile that I got before going to bed, and some kind of misty memory-less evening baggage packing.

Three more hours of fast sleep later, at 4a.m. I was on my way to a vacation in Greece and some

Yes, yes, good days are coming!

* Sylvie, once again, thanks plenty for the help! :)


Here are some of the pictures that I saw and felt related to while working on the thesis:

The BC (Before Completion) period is over!

I am officially done with working on my thesis.


As somebody (and by "somebody" I mean every single person who knows me) may have expected, I finished it at the last possible moment of the last possible attempt for submitting.

The last day of April was fading into a night and I was still writing. Things did not look good, I must admit.

I did not believe in myself, though others did... Luckily, I knew I had the support of my family, my friends and my boyfriend (who fell asleep on the couch, next to me, only after reading the analysis part of my paper and giving me his feedback) and this loaded me with energy to keep going.

Finally, after greeting the sun that gave me its yellow-purple-red-colored rays on the first day of May, I decided I was done editing. I sent the file to my friend Sylvie who was going to submit the paper copies for me (since I am not in Denmark) and tried to process the thought that I had just finished.

Then, with the morning sun coming in through the bathroom window, I took the happiest shower of my life while singing one happy song after another.. Aaahh, better days are coming!
