Last post in 2011

Just a quick hello, before I'm off to California! 
Today was my last day at university this year, it's going to be great with a week off where I don't have to think about homework and exams. Almost week ago, we finished our semester project and delivered it at the printer's after 26 hours of hard, concentrated work. It was a bit hard, but we managed to get through the night with good music ("All night long" seemed perfect for the occasion). And when I finally got home after being awake for 29 hours straight, I slept all day, which was much needed. 

As you can see above, I finished my book challenge the other day! I've read 100 books this year, I'm so happy I made it. In the beginning of December I was afraid I didn't reach my goal, and then I finished more than a week before deadline, yay!
I haven't decided whether or not I'll join a reading challenge again next year, but if I am, I'll make it easier than this year. It was quite stressful at times and reading for fun shouldn't become a chore. Maybe one book per week is fine?
Anyway, my plane takes off tomorrow morning (maybe I should start packing my suitcase?). I wish you all a Merry Christmas and hope you'll get safely into 2011! I'll be back in 2012!

The days run away like wild horses

Time really flies these days! This weekend I've been drawing like crazy for our semester project. We have to deliver the file at the printer's on Thursday, so there's just a few busy days left. And then another paper needs my attention. Luckily, I can listen to Christmas music all day if I want to, so it's not too boring. But I'm still looking so much forward to the holidays!
Especially because I'm going to celebrate Christmas in California this year! Pretty cool, huh? I've never tried to be in another country during Christmas, so it's pretty exiting, I think. And I've dreamt about visiting California for a long time, so it's just perfect.
But first I have all these papers to finish... On the bright side my birthday is just around the corner, so there's plenty of good things happening too.

This is one of my favourite Christmas songs. I'm a huge fan of Jason Mraz and actually this is the song, that made me listen to his own songs. I love the way he sings this song, sometimes I listen to it during the summer too, I can't help it. His voice is just amazing. And he's looking so cute in this video, you have to watch it, haha.
