I‘m very unsure of how to actually start this text and begin from scratch again. A procrastinator as I am, while trying to write a looong reflection for a school project, my blog suddenly came up in my mind and I decided to (finally) fix the issue I’ve been struggling with for quite a while. Briefly, my WordPress domain decided to crash in April, and it has taken me nearly seven months to call my domain host to fix this issue. Buuuut now it’s finally fixed – and here I am again!
This Fall has been keeping me a busy bee, trying to balance out the school-work-group project-social life axis. My third semester at school here in Copenhagen is coming to an end, as I am starting my internship in a few weeks, which will balance everything out a little bit. Furthermore, quite a lot has happened during these months, with changing my address to a cozy little 26sqm studio apartment, spending a month in Finland during Summer, having friends moving to Copenhagen and much much more. I also purchased a tiny analog camera, and I currently have three rolls waiting to be developed. Pretty nervous for the results though, as the back lid opened up a few times..
These pictures were taken a few days back when I decided to wipe the dust off my camera and take it out in the evening sunlight before shooting some pictures for my friend’s portfolio. The sunlight was absolutely magical!!
We’ll see what this “comeback” will bring along, maybe some more frequent posting (trying at least to avoid a seven month break).
The week in Paris is now behind, and I’m back in Copenhagen with new energy (and some new freckles). The trip was originally arranged by the school as a part of a research project, although we mostly had time for ourselves to go around the city. We stayed in the 11th district close to Bastille, which was a completely new area for me in Paris. We also spent a lot of our time on the northern side of Seine, and I absolutely fell in love with Marais! The area had such a peculiar vibe – and was so different from the other parts of the city. The days were mainly spent by walking kilometers after kilometers, trying to bring back those French skills from 7th grade, strolling through vintage stores and sitting on an outside serving drinking cheap wine.
The last evening when me and Kevin snook out for a one last drink around the corner, sitting there watching people pass by, I told him that I could definitely see myself living in this city at some point of my life. That city has a special vibe which is so indescribable. I remember having those same thoughts the first time I went to Paris, so it was nice to see that I still feel the same way towards the city. You never know!
