Today I had my first real moment alone since arriving in Malta, over coffee and books this morning at a café near the university. I love this spot; these balconies are everywhere in the city and they are so full of sunlight :–)
Since my manager is in the hospital I didn’t have work today. I got up early and went to Target with my best friend, and then we spent the rest of the day studying in my apartment. We studied quietly and alone for a little while until my roommates woke up and came into the living room to do homework with us. Even though our kitchen table got pretty cluttered, it was kind of refreshing to be able to sit back and see all the productivity.
We started planning a spring break trip to Maine and somewhere along the way we ended up sharing stories of good winters and sledding incidents from when we were younger. It was a really good day, and I was glad to have extra time to get work done.
Last week I didn’t work out as much as I wanted to and I didn’t eat very healthy. Even though I was already down emotionally, not maintaining my health didn’t help with my mood either. This week I’m hoping to get back on track and find my balance again.
I got to Senate House Library in Bloomsbury extra early this morning, I found this lovely studying spot and read the whole of Said’s Freud and The Non-European, another book that I have been wanting to read for myself but will also be really useful in the next term. I am going to miss the city and being in classes so much whilst I’m away
