On Keeping Promises

Ok, so…

I hate to admit it – I’m usually a trustworthy person… But I did not honor my promise to be back soonSmiley triste

I’m sorry again, guys! School’s been hectic, and all I can do is study, study, and study a little more. I’m actually sick right now – missed my friend’s party and everything – but I usually don’t have the rime to do much besides studying. At all.

I know it sounds exaggerate, but I’m really not kidding – things get complicated when you have physics, maths, chemistry, history, portuguese, french, geography, philosophy, sociology, P.E., literature, biology and music to study!

But anyway… I should stop excusing. Moving forward is the way to go Alegre

So, on the last few days, I have been studying a lot. But on Tuesday, my bestfriend Ananda’s birthday, we decided to throw her a surprise party – which was definitely fun!

On Wednesday, I met my Grandpa, my Aunt and my cousins for dinner. It was actually really fun – I love hanging out with my cousins and grandpa! They’re hilarious.

On Thursday, nothing really exciting happened… except for our “June Party” rehearsal.

What – you guys don’t know what a “June Party” is?!

Mine’s tomorrow, so… I’ll just let you guys see it for yourselves Alegre

In terms of food… I haven’t been really paying too much attention to what I’ve been eating. ED thoughts keep coming back and fourth, but I knew it’d happen sooner or later. But, believe me – I’m fighting against it as much as I can.

On My “Act of Disappearance”

Hey, GUYS!

I have TONS of things to do today, my “to-do list” is enormous, but I just can’t take it anymore…

I need to BLOG!

Hahahahaha. I’m serious, guys! I missed y’all Alegre

You’re probably wondering why did I stop in the first place. Well, besides being SUPER busy with school-related stuff, my computer died Smiley triste

I know, terrible, right? And (almost) all of my pictures were there! Argh.

Thankfully, I have Mom’s laptop to rely on. Thanks, Mom Alegre

(Have I mentioned that she’s on honeymoon/vacation with my stepfather? They first went to Berlin, but they’re curently in Paris! Doesn’t she look gorgeous?)

So, let’s move on the fun stuff.. What did I miss?!

I know Gabriela travelled to London and met two lovely ladies: Carrie and Freya!

I’m also aware that Emma has learnt an important lesson while recovering from her injury - a Medial Stress Syndrome. {By the way… you’re AWESOME, girl! I’m sure you’ll get better soon and that you’ll join the running club in no time! You can do it, love! Smiley de boca aberta}

But, apart from that… NADA! Fill me in, people!

I wish I could stay and chat (write – you get the point), but it’s almost midnight and I gotta go to bed immediately!

So these are just some recent pics I took… Some weren’t really good, so – sorry!  I promise I’ll try my best to take more good-quality pictures Alegre

3, 2, 1… go!

As you guys may have noticed, I have a liiiitle Whole Wheat Banana Pie problem…

I mean… at least it’s healthy, right? It has bananas, oats, it’s whole wheat…

But, most importantly… It’s DELICIOUS!

I wish I could send you guys some WWBP right now!

As soon as I find a way to freeze and send it… I swear I’ll do a giveaway Alegre

Now, bed’s calling!

This time’s true – I’ll be back!

XOXO,

G.
