Question of the day.

What was the last song you listened to?

I’ve just posted a song for today and I listened to it while writing the post, and that was the last song I listened. It was “You Lay Low” by Gurli Octavia and you can check it out in the previous post if you’d like.

You? 🙂

Music Monday – Gurli Octavia – You Lay Low.

Hi hi peeps! 🙂

I’ve been MIA for a few days, but today I’m back with some music for you. Today’s song of the day post I’d like to combine with the post about celebrating my life because Bee over at The Bee Writes

is running the second Music Monday Blog Party which is an amazing opportunity to celebrate our lives and share some fantastic music.

So, as for celebrating my life, today I’m having a bit of a self care day. The last few weeks were rather tough for me, with all these exams and other stressing stuff. As you may know last Thursday I finally finished my school year, although my final exams are still to come. You could think I should be happy and relieved that finally the school is over and all, and I was incredibly relieved, but also was feeling incredibly depressed for the whole weekend, didn’t just have any energy and spent most of the time either sleeping or self-hating or overthinking or listening to Emilie Autumn. Maybe as the tension became slightly less my brain decided it’s time to slow down and depression was the result of it, I don’t know, but I was feeling really crappy. Today I’m still rather low, but my energy is higher and things don’t seem so overwhelming and hopeless hence I thought about a little self care day.

Actually the thing I’m mainly focused on today is snuggling with Misha. He seems to be very sociable today, is still with me. I had two cups of delicious coffee in the morning chatting a lot with Mum and a few hours ago we went to the confectionery nearby and had some incredibly yummy icecream, and then had a long walk. It’s very sunny today, but not hot, so it felt very nice. I am reading the only Jane Austen’s book I haven’t read before and it’s Sanditon. I love Jane Austen’s books, they always make me smile and I like her way of describing people. They’re light, but not so light that your brain turns off while you read them, if you know what I mean.

So that’s about how I celebrate my day today. I need to recharge because tomorrow we’ll have a BBQ with our extended family – I don’t know who came up with this silly idea you have to make BBQs in May – so I’m recharging before that happens and to get some energy for my finals, of which the first is coming on Friday. I’m sick of fear, but trying to not think about it more than I have to. At least my Dad has been very nice and offered us to drive us back and forth on Friday, so I’ll have to spend only one night there at that boarding school, from Monday to Tuesday, and that makes things much easier and more manageable than staying there from Friday to Tuesday. Of course my Dad doesn’t know how much of a deal is staying there for me, but he just has a day off work on Friday so it was his own suggestion to drive me and Mum and Zofijka will go with us too.

OK, so my song for today is “You Lay Low” by Gurli Octavia. Gurli Octavia is one of the artists I discovered very recently. She’s Danish and lives in Copenhagen.
