NOSTALGIA_ PART TWO
And these are the rest of the sketches on this notebook. All of these are dated pre-Summer 2011.
Looking at these made me want to start again. I may not be very good but at least I had fun and that’s what matters!
NOSTALGIA_ PART 1
I haven’t drawn anything in about a year but recently a conversation with the wonderful Gabri (who is also the love of my life btw) made me want to go at it again. So while I was looking for a marker pad to start sketching on to practice, I found a really old moleskine full of little sketches, mixed in with my notes from the Uni I used to attend!
So instead of chocking it away, I’m scanning them all and reminding myself of how much fun I used to have.
Anonymous said: So how are you, how's the 2014 going? What have you been up to? What's new and interesting in your life, what keeps you excited these days? :)
I’m currently home, relaxing for the Summer.
2014 has been the year when my life was turned upside down. My dad very recently lost his job in a very mediatic scandal involving the company he worked for… almost immediately after my mom quit her job.
So now my plans of going back to Rome in September, moving to London in February to continue studying etc might not come together at all.
I graduated cum laude, maximum grade + honours, and managed to put out something that I’m very proud of as a final project and hope to perfect in the next couple of years so I can one day launch it in the market.
2014 is when I truly fell in love for the first time. Well, I had a crush since around November 2013, because he was so ridiculously ‘my type’ (even my friends made fun of me), but I never go to talk to him.In February we properly got to meet and talk and it was like being hit by lightning; it was like finding not only the person that I’d imagined in my dreams since I was about 8 years old, but at the same time like finding a very important part of me that I never realised was missing. I had never felt this way before and I was terrified because every time I’d had a crush, I’d been rejected; I couldn’t imagine being rejected when I had such weird, strong feelings for someone. But, hey, for some odd reason he apparently liked me too and we’ve now been together for 5 months (6 months in August!).
The uncertainty of the future keeps me on my toes, more than excited. I can’t relax, I have to keep looking for opportunities, things that I can apply for that will secure me something, anything.
But obviously being in love, and sharing an intimate relationship with someone who takes such good care of me, pushes me forward and protects me, excites me. The prospect of spending more time with him excites me even more. He’s coming to Lisbon next week and staying with me and my family and I can’t wait to see him.
I’m more terrified about life than excited right now, because my straight-line plan is now a big black hole. I just don’t know. But I have an amazing family, AWESOME friends and a perfect boyfriend rooting for me. And if they believe I can do it, then I have to do it; if not for me, for them :)

I’ve been there but they don’t have much in pencil cases and notebooks ): I love their stuff though it’s definitely that kind of thing I’m looking for!
Does anyone know a Europe-based online shop that sells really cute stationery, like pencil cases, notebooks and planners?
