Things to look forward too: the autumn edition

Dear all,

Autumn so far has been overwhelming. I've started at a new school, learned a lot of new things, met new people, made new friends, made a strange campus feel like I've walked there for years and most important I've not been afraid...nervous yes, but not afraid to be who I am, to say what I think and to do the things I love. It's all been a great expirience so far! In a few weeks I'll be making my first exams at my new university, can you imagine? Downside is that I'm really busy with lots of work and studying! Everyone I know seems to be terribly busy, and sometimes the thought alone can make me very overwhelmed and stressed. So I've made a list of things I'm looking forward to the next couple of weeks or months. So whenever I feel stressed or overwhelmed I have a few things to look forward to that cheer me up!

On a walk & a sneak peak of a new finished cardigan!!!

  • Passing my first exams!! (lets for the moment assume I will atleast pass one of them)
  • One of my favourite designers publishes her first book!! 
  • Jumping in a big pile of leaves.
  • Seeing lots of animals preparing for winter.  

Met this little guy on a walk last Sunday. We named him Douglas the Brave.
  • Pumpkin out of the oven! 
  • Wearing my handknits to university.
  • Sorting out my stash.
  • Watching some really old movies, while snuggling the cat.  
  • Sewing  pants for the first time!
  • Cycling back home, in the early evening while it's dark and seeing all  the christmas tree lights in peoples home.
  • Going to a vintage tea house. 
  • Visit Amsterdam again.
My most photogenic cat.
  • Go ice skating. 
  • The first snowfall! 
  • Selecting Christmas presents for friends & family! ( is it too early to make wish lists?)
  • Celebrating Christmas.

    And lastly:
  • The Hobbit! Very nostalgic feeling: when the last LOTR-movie came out, I was still in highschool, and it was a traditional thing for three christmasses in a row.

      So what is keeping you busy this autumn? Is there anything typically for this time of year you are looking forward too?

      Good luck with your exams, I am sure you will do really well, and such a great idea to have a list of happy things to turn to when you are stressed I will have to try this myself!
      I love autumn and all the things to come over the next few months! I am also super excited to see the Hobbit, nothing better than a little fantasy and magic near christmas! xxx

      Do try it, it always helps to set priorities and inspire good feelings.

      And the countdown to the Hobbit continues... 14th of december, I'm ready!
