August, September, Portugal, Malta, and missing friends
I’m just sitting down on the armchair, planning August, because believe it or not we’re nearly in the 8th month of 2011, and just received an email from a good friend of mine from Malta, and he’s going to be in London end of August, most probably for a month or more. So excited :)
Then I got to think. End of August, 1 month later = end of September = my holiday to Portugal. Going for 5 days for my friend’s 24th birthday! 5 days of sun, beach and cocktails.
Which then made me realise that I’ve travelled quiet a bit this year. Been to Milan in March, Malta in May, and Madrid in June. They’re all places that I’ve never been, well, I’ve been to Malta before - dughh! And then I realised how much I wish I would go to Malta more often. I miss my friends so much, it’s very difficult to keep a thread going, a reply would come after 7/8 days, and I’m starting to understand what it means “I’m busy with work-didn’t have time to reply” cos I’m doing exactly the same thing.
Not being in Malta during the summer is very painful. The beaches, the sun burns, the sea salt, the heat, the bbq, the huge amount of wine consumed during the night over heated discussions or jazz music. I miss it and I miss my closest and dearest so much. <3
I’ve officially graduated yesterday. (The first time with the hat and the hood - just to keep with the purpose of this tumblr) And today, I’m back at work. Switch on my Mac, and find that I have a swipe key set up for me, my passwords, have a company email all set-up on entourage (ace!) and have a client that I’ll call my own - i’m loving all this jazz!
But now I’m realising I’ve grown up so quickly in just 2 days - I feel how a proper 24 year old should feel like.
OK… I need to find a solution to keep me active. And I’m thinking rowing, since there’s River Thames just across my desk.
Just assisted to a briefing to the designers about this packaging they have to re-design. Really enjoyed it. Really want to see this finished now, cos I’ve been seeing and pinpointed all the problems for the last 4 days - I want to see the solution.
Off to finish my butternut squash soup for lunch. Which is yummy btw.
