Throwback Thursday #5

Hello everyone :) Today I'm gonna share with you a really old photo of me! It was back then when I had long brown hair. This picture was taken right before going to a costume party. As you can see I wasn't prepared at all, I was just wearing bunny ears and that was my costume.
I don't really remember much from that night but also don't remember taking this photo, so I was really shocked when I found it in some old folders. 
Anyway one more day to go and the weekend is coming. aaarg this was a really long week!

Master's Seminar

Hello everyone, today me, Gracie and Efi went to a masters seminar. Several representatives from various universities were there giving valuable information about their programs and leaflets. However the universities we are interested weren't participating but we went anyway 'cause we've learned that there will be a CV expert kiosk. They basically checked your CV and gave you advice on how to improve it. Which was actually really helpful.
Another important reason we wanted to go was that Efi would be there and we wanted to be supportive on her choice of ~maybe~ attending a master herself. So we really didn't learn anything groundbreaking at this event and we didn't find the buffet which was supposed to be on the roof garden. This sucked because it was my main argument to Gracie from going "Imagine all the free food Gracie! We should go" and I let her down. Then again she let me down by taking us to the wrong place in the rain and making us 1 hour and a half late. 
On the above photo you can see me pretending to be interested in studying management (I'm not) cause almost all the universities there were only presenting their management related programs. Maybe there is a hype for management masters in Europe that I am not aware of. 
And here is us looking tired from running around the city in the rain without an umbrella. I love how we are both wearing dresses with collars. We even have the same dresses as well. We will totally wear them on a photoshoot to creep you guys out. Yay.
That's all for now! Have a nice day!

Ella the cute lady

Hello everyone :) Today me Daphne and Ella had a quiet evening. We were drinking tea and Ella was sitting on the bed watching us. She looks so confused, maybe she can't understand why we are working so many hours. Applying for unis isn't easy Ella!
Other times she pretends to be indifferent that we are on the same room. She might seem occupied with random objects like this beanie but all she wants is attention.
She is really depressed when we don't pay attention to her like we ought to. She's a royalty and it's undeniable that she deserves the best treatment. Who can resist to this silly face!
Although she tends to jump off balconies and roofs trying to break her previous record Ella is the cutest cat! Those big green eyes are too cute to handle :)
Ella wishes you a great day!

Gardens in Spring

Hello everyone :) Today was an almost sunny day in Athens so I took a break from writing purpose letters for  universities and I went for a walk in the National Garden. This is one of my favorite places in the city and now that the spring is here I couldn't find anything better!
The part that I like the most is that most of the times this place is practically empty. Even though it is in the center of the capital it's extremely quite! Also I bet that it's the only place in Athens that doesn't smell like fish. I hate hate hate fish and today everyone's so eager to keep this awful tradition and eat stinky fishes.
The only thing that I wanted to complete my happiness was an ice cream but it was impossible to find. I don't get it why they don't sell ice creams all year round. There is no better dessert than that! (maybe cheesecake sometimes could be better, or chocolate muffins) but I was in the mood for a frozen dessert!
Instead of ice cream everyone nowadays sells frozen yogurt which can be categorised as the most ridiculous idea ever. I hate yogurt and most of all I hate the idea of a healthy desert. If I wanted something healthy I would have eaten a banana.
Anyway I guess that my break is almost over cause this is gonna be one of the most challenging weeks. It's so boring to apply for universities. I wish someone could have told me that before I even considered starting all this madness. The only thing that keeps me going is Daphne! Not only she does her own papers without complaining(almost) but also gives me a ton of a help! I  hope you all have an awesome week!
