What’s Up Wednesday

What we’re eating this week:

Healthy meals and drinking tonnes of water:

Dinner: Small piece of grilled turkey and a salad. Fresh homemade orange juice.

Lunch: Pieces of leftover chicken, cherry tomatoes from our garden, frozen baby carrots, cucumber slices and an orange.

Breakfast+Lunch+Snack: Slice of Portuguese bread with crunchy peanut butter and banana slices, frozen baby carrots, an apple, jello and a decaf latte with almond milk.

Dinner: Codfish rice (brown rice) and a salad.

Breakfast: Plain Greek yogurt, teaspoon of strawberry jelly, banana and peach slices, assorted seeds.
What I’m reminiscing about:

Nothing much. I went to my friend’s apartment last week, which is our old apartment and some memories came to mind.

What I’m loving: 

My diet, my blog, going to the pool, watching movies and documentaries. Something else I’ll tell you soon.

What we’ve been up to:

We went to the pool yesterday, we watch movies together and cook together. I’ve been trying to be more active on social media, get organized when it comes to blogging, catching up with your posts, answering old comments and trying to be healthier.

What I’m dreading:

I was dreading having to read Harry Potter, but now I freed myself from such task.

What I’m working on:

The usual. My health, both physical and mental and my July goals.

What I’m excited about:

Going to the beach and to the pool.

What I’m watching/reading:

I’ve been watching a few documentaries, The Godfather, and some YouTube videos. I’m currently reading Death With Interruptions by the Portuguese author and Nobel Prize winner, José Saramago.

What I’m listening to:

Spotify. A few of the moods playlist. Relax and Unwind and The Most Beautiful Songs In The World.

What I’m wearing:

The usual. But right now? A red nightgown from Primark as a dress. Don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere.

What I’m doing this weekend:

Maybe swimming and meeting my friends.

What else is new:

So, this is where the good news come.

First: Remember I told you we could not spare the money for my tuition and that I couldn’t take my exams? Well, Rui went through our accounts and saving and did his magic and decided we can afford it and not become homeless (kidding).

Second: My phone is shit, my camera is shit. My phone was super slow and freezing all the time and doing crazy stuff and the camera quality was a little shitty. My camera is from 2013 and apparently not so good anymore, especially with colors. So we decided to buy me an iphone (no, we’re not reach, we bought it through my service provider plan. Isn’t it how everyone buys iphones? Or you just get there and pay 400 or 800€.

I bought the iphone SE 32GB and I’m in love. It’s so fast, so user-friendly, so easy, so amazing. I bought the gold version:


I was super lucky because it was the last one at the store in this color. And even luckier because they were offering  a big discount for this phone.

I was in desperate need of a good phone as I use it so much for EVERYTHING. Calls, text messages, whatsapp, Skype, WordPress, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, to receive and send emails from all of my accounts and more. When I worked, I 100% depended on my phone and I imagine it will be like that again when I go back to work.

I’m very happy about these two things. Time to finish my post.

What about you?

Have you received any good news lately?

What is something that you’re loving right now?

Thank you so much for being so patient through this blogging break. Love you all.
