It´s Our Vacation

Happy first day of vacation, people!

(My first day – anyhow. Haha)

I know that I´m a tad bit late… But school in Brazil is different! This is not our summer time – we´re on winter!

So, yep. I only have three weeks off until I get back to school.

Did I say only?!

I meant THREE WHOLE WEEKS OFF! YAAAY!

Hahaha.

Now seriously, guys. The last few weeks were… tough.

I went back and fourth with Mom, Dad and Grandpa about recovery… Slipped a few times… Relapsed… Yeah – not so pretty at all.

But I´m here, and test week is over. Let me tell you – THAT was stressful. I spent a whole week studying like crazy, having panic attacks, crying and not sleeping.

And I simply can´t believe that I´m now FREE!

YAAAAAAAAAY!

I felt like I needed to update you guys… But I don´t really feel like talking about the past. You guys know the drill: issues, fights, tears… Bringing it all back just isn´t worth it.

But let´s get into the good things!

Although I said I was done taking pics, I did take a few ones during the last few weeks. But I didn´t do it as an obligation – I did it for fun. And it was awesome! I felt so loose, free…

Freaking-delicious meals that went unpictured:

– 2 Fro-Yos

– Cassava Gnocci with Pesto Sauce (!)

– Salmon and Provolone Wrap

– Veggie Sandwich with a Cottage Cheese and Mozzarella Mix in a Focaccia Bread

–  3 (!) interesting buffet-experiences

And probably much more… Not that I remember, really. Hahahaha 😉

(I used to have that combo all the time as a kid! Milk+chocolate powder. Only I had it warm, with full-fat milk and regular chocolate powder. Oh, well – times change…)

  1. Congrats on being on vacation, girl! Doesn't it feel nice to finally have that weight of your shoulders? Make sure to do some relaxing and good eatin' during your time off!

    And there's seriously nothing worse than unripe fruit. I've had some mangoes and bananas that looked perfectly good to eat on the outside, and when I cut into them, they were all hard and gross. What gives?

    PS. Can I have your crazy straw?

  2. YAY for break! I wish mangos here were cheaper because all of yours (even the not ripe ones) look sooo good

  3. Those pictures (of the water etc) are stunning! It makes me really want to just drop everything and come live there! Your food looks really good too! I know you don't want to hash up the past- but I'm sure that by doing so and being honest, you are inspiring so many struggling girls in the same situation. You are showing them that life goes on! Also, it should inspire you to see all that you've gone through, own your feelings, gain perspective, get it off your chest and be able to look back and read it and see how far youve come! More pictures of your city!
