This month was filled with lots of good food! What a surprise, haha, but we had a lot of occasions to celebrate.
First we took my mother for her birthday to La Cubanita (tapas) as a surprise. I went a second time to La Cubanita to catch up with some friends. It was fun to hang out with them. Then I had tapas at another restaurant with my book club, which was great as always!
We went out for dinner for my father's birthday (sushi) and then to celebrate it with the family we ordered some food and I got a fantastic burger with fries. For father's day we went to a world restaurant where you could eat all kinds of food, so that was awesome.
And yesterday I had sushi with a few of my colleagues and it was nice! It made me feel really accepted and they asked me for Facebook (I was scared to ask them to be friends before :'))
Other things I did:
I had my yearly review (been working there for 6 months now) and they are really positive. I got some good compliments, like: you are exactly how I imagine a microbiology analyst. I work accurately and I pick up new things quickly. It's also great how she 'deals' with my shyness. She told me to do everything at my own pace, to not force myself and just be myself; and she believes I fit in the team.
I got my ear pierced! Finally! I'm scared of needles, but I've been talking about getting one for years and I finally decided to do it. I got an auricle, which is basically a lower helix. You can see it in the picture here, together with my new hair! It did not turn out how I wanted it, but I'm loving the purple color.
This month I spend a lot of time working on my bulletjournal (expect a new post about this soon!) and I attempted some doodles with handlettering.
I have a nice haul this month! I got this beautiful signed edition from one of my favorite books, The book thief, from my dear friend Debby as a late birthday present <3 I've heard great things about The unexpected Everything – Morgan Matson from her, so I decided to buy a copy. I have the two sequels to Maria Snyder - Storm Glass, so I can finally start this series. Rebel of the sands by Alwyn Hamilton has a lot of love and I am curious to give it a try. I LOVE the cover from The flights and chimes and mysterious times. I loved the first book in the Fairyland series and I'm happy with my copy from Creative lettering and beyond. And next to these books I decided to add a few movies to my collection. I finally got Wreck-it-Ralph, Rio, Frankenweenie, Monsters University, Tinkerbell the pirate fairy, The good dinosaur and the BBC classic edition with North and South – my favorite! I can't wait to watch Hotel Transylvania part 2 and A true princess was a bargain.
1. G.R Mannering – Roses. Disappointing.
2. Hand, Meadows & Ashton – My lady Jane.
3. Sharon Biggs Waller – The forbidden orchid. Very disappointing.
4. G. R Mannering – Buds (novella)
5. Lis Metzger – Changes places with me. So weird. Did not like it.
6. Maggie Stiefvater – Blue Lily, Lily Blue (reread)
7. Mindy McGinnis – The female of species. So disappointing *cries* Not for me.
Deadpool. FINALLY. I LOVED IT
The do-over. Was okay.
Far from the maddening crowd. What a horrible movie. Such a stupid girl.
Game of thrones, entire season and damn, what a good season it was! The two last episodes were amazing! I don't want to wait another year, but at least it didn't end like the previous season. And all my favorites are still alive, so that is a good thing, haha.
New girl, it's getting better. Up-to-date.
Marco Polo: hundred eyes. Interesting extra episode. I find him fascinating.
Orange is the new black: YEEEES. I'm on episode 9 now.
Big Bang Theory: up to date, not too bad.
Jane the Virgin: on episode 13, season 1. I like it.
How was your June?
