Revisiting Gilmore Girls

I remember starting to watch Gilmore Girls years ago, and thinking to myself how much I both identified with, and at the same time wanted to be more like, Rory Gilmore. Lembro-me de começar a ver a série Gilmore Girls há anos e de pensar para mim como me identificava com, e ao mesmo tempo queria ser mais como, a Rory Gilmore.    I related to her love of books, her passion for writing and journalism, her shy nature, her awkwardness and, in a few ways, her boy drama. Identificava-me com o amor dela pelos livros, a sua paixão pela…

2017 Plans

Happy New Year everybody! Hope you had a really fun New Year’s Eve and that the new year is starting off well 🙂 Feliz Ano Novo a todos! Espero que tenham passado bem o ano e que 2017 esteja a começar bem 🙂 Today I thought I’d share with you a bit of what I want to do in 2017. Not exactly resolutions because those I tend to do in September, still going by school years rather than actual calendar ones. But sort of a wish list for the year ahead. Hoje pensei partilhar convosco um bocadinho do que quero…

Christmas wrapping

Good morning guys, and Happy Christmas Eve!  Bom dia a todos e boa Véspera de Natal! I’ll be spending today shopping for food, enjoying the sunshine and seaside air, making all kinds of Christmas treats and enjoying Christmas Eve dinner, a highlight of the holidays in Portugal. Hoje vou passar o dia a comprar comida, a aproveitar o sol e o ar do mar, a fazer doces de Natal e a gozar o bacalhau da Véspera de Natal. Throughout this week, I spent some time decorating the house with my parents and wrapping presents for the whole family.  Ao longo…

Something different

Today’s post is a little different. I’ve been struggling with how to approach the subject, and thinking if I should even do it. But it is Christmas, and taking a quote from Home Alone, this is “the season of perpetual hope”. O post de hoje é ligeiramente diferente do habitual. Tenho estado a pensar sobre como abordar o tema, e/ou se o devia abordar de todo. Mas é Natal e, usando uma frase do Sozinho em Casa, esta é “a época da esperança perpétua”. 2016 has been a crappy year. Very crappy. Like, when you thought it couldn’t get worse,…
