If there ever was a thing vacation taught me, it’s that you always find the weekends amazingly short once you’ve started working again. And I’m sure you’ve heard this thousand times but it really is true. You feel like you don’t even have the time to blink before it’s gone. And it’s a tiny wee bit bittersweet every god damn time, isn’t it.
In any case, I’m going to be just like the weekend. Short but sweet. Last week was the first week back at work and I got a cold, timed it just right. Thankfully three out of five days were spent in meetings more or less, since we had our annual work conference Thursday to Friday. It was a week of mixed feelings. Got to say goodbye to two colleagues, say hello to three new, visit a place that made impressions during my childhood, and rode Helix and survived.
This weekend is one of those weekends where you barely remember what you did. Friday? No idea. I think I just saw my parents and then passed out at home. Yesterday, beer with friend IIRC. And today not much apart from listening to the rain. Just now I finished watching a movie with Linnea, called The Host. It was actually better than I thought, even though of course it was a bit cheesy and tad shallow. But that goes for me too so maybe that’s why the pairing worked out. And here I thought I’d shut off my emotions a bit but oh no. Watching a cheesy onscreen kiss brought it all back. I might have to activate my online dating accounts again and maybe this time around someone will spark an interest in me, and even make me feel? Would be nice 🙂
And hey, Saoirse Ronan, I’m starting to dig you! Hanna, Byzantium, Violet & Daisy, Lovely Bones, and a few others. Always so silent, but often interesting characters.
PS. Björn & I had one final attempt to watch the first episode of Mad Men S06 but we failed quite epically. Both men died on the couch after a bit too much beer and a cheap cigar. I doubt I’ll ever get back into that series…
Here’s a few photos from the past week. Found an old goodie in a text conversation as well, haha.
