Another month is coming to an end, and I can’t seem to wake up…
It’s mostly due to the weather. Rainy every day, often cloudy, unstable… Plus, probably, some consequences of the covid are still there. Plus I’ve spent a whole day on the bus three days ago, and had a lot to do after that.
This time, I went to Croatia not in September (or late August), but in May. It was more convenient to do it like that this time. And then it turned out that the sun was already scorching. But, as you can see on the picture above (and below), it’s still pretty.
Yes, I still love pictures of water.
This time, I decided to dye my hair a couple of days before the trip. Because I wanted to be blonde, of course, but also so my family would finally see me like that.
And for the very first time, and just a couple of days before the trip, I got an allergic reaction to bleach. My palms were itching like crazy. I got it some 30 minutes after the bleach was on my head already, so it was pointless to stop; but I have yet to decide whether I’m going to bleach my hair again the next time I go to my hairdresser.
It has never happened to me before. Not even after I went to bleach my hair after covid, which is when it happened to a considerable number of people.
Oh, well. It’s not like I have to be a blonde. I just like it.
Have another picture.
Other than the trip and the allergy, it was as usual: a bit of work here and there (not much, really), and reading.
Currently reading: The Heavens by Sandra Newman. I’m still at the beginning, so can’t say much, other than that it seems interesting.
Recently read: Lovište by Katarina Nikolić (a pretty good thriller), Praznik zveri – Dopisani by Zoran Petrović (another part of his urban supernatural thriller saga, this one set in the WW2 and dealing with the resistance to the nazis in Belgrade), Tri oka u glavi by Ilija Bakić (a series of interesting essays about science fiction), Monsters by Barry Windsor-Smith (an excellent graphic novel about evil, nazis, what makes monsters (and what doesn’t)), Kosingas – Buđenje Svarogovo 2 by Aleksandar Tešić (the last part of the Kosingas saga, thought there will be at least one more book set in the same world), Mladenka kostonoga by Želimir Periš (experimental prose about a so-called witch who (mostly) lived in Croatia in the 19th century; unexpectedly fun at times, but also brutal), Yoga by Emanuel Karer (what was supposed to be a light-hearted book about yoga turned into a book showing what bipolar personality disorder looks like), Komo by Srđan Valjarević (an author gets paid to spend some time at the Komo lake in Italy and write his new novel, but spends that time drinking, eating, walking around and resting instead), and Kad se vratim by Mladen Jakovljević (a novel dealing with two different generations and how they are connected by a loss of a loved one).
Oh, hey, have another picture: I saw a snake, but didn’t come too close to it. You might need to enlarge the picture to see the danger noodle better.
Currently watching: nothing.
Recently watched: nothing. I was away, I was reading…
Currently working on: there was a bit of work, but since I’ve mostly been away, not much.
And that’s pretty much it for now. Have another picture (no cat pictures this time, just the sea), and see you next time!
