Welcome to 2016!

Hello there, long time no see!

I had wanted to post before New Year's but I didn't find the time, and then so many things happened all at once... well, better late then never!

First things first - I am super happy to tell you that two weeks ago I passed my Master's exam so now I am officially "Master of Science" :D
I can't really describe how happy I am. Years ago, when I was still in school, I was thinking about how it would be like to be all grown up and hold a degree and work in science and all that. And now that dream has come true! I am still working at the institute where I worked on my Master thesis, and will do my PhD there, and I'm really excited about upcoming research projects.

Bodytalk: What does healthy and happy even mean?

Hi guys,

I guess some of you might be tired of reading how I rant about my body, but... well, I just wanted to wrap up some things that happened in the past weeks, if not months, and talk about health issues - mental and physical.

TTH: Apocalpytica Shadowmaker Tour with meet & greet

 Hey people!

I've decided to start a category on my blog titled "Things that happened" or in other words, remotely interesting stuff that happened a while ago but I never got a chance to write about. So today I wanna start with a really cool event that took place on 17th October this year. My boyfriend and me got tickets for the Apocalyptica concert in town, but not just any tickets - I bought the VIP package back in March before the release of the new album Shadowmaker, which included two signed copies of the CD (I gave one to my mum because she also likes their music) and a VIP ticket to the concert, meaning we actually got to meet the band!

Halloween meet up 2015 /// Trick or Treat, ye Landlubbers!

What it is this, two entries within such a short time of each other?
Is it a miracle?
No! It's the magic of the night of nights, All Hallow's Eve!

Okay, enough cheesy blabla. It would probably be more appropriate if I got my pirate speak on, because THIS IS HALLOWEEN *sing* and this year, I dressed up as a pirate! :D We went to a Halloween meet up organized by Lea - we, that is, my boyfriend and me! Yes, you read that right! I finally convinced my boyfriend to tag along to such an event ! He had already met a few people from the community earlier this year at Lea's birthday party, and also, since it's Halloween, it was not very hard to get him to dress up and wear "fancy" clothes in public :3 

I love this photo! So much awesomeness, so many great costumes ♥

Metamorphose Tea Party 2015 - The princess and the witch

Hello, long time no see!

I wanted to post this much, much sooner but I am super busy - graduate school has started, we have homework, I have three projects that I need to finish before December and my thesis is still nor written and defended (meaning I'm still BSc and not MSc. Fortunately it does not matter for grad school, but still, I'd like to get this done before the end of the year!).

So, all lame excuses aside, of course I'm very excited and happy to write a blog post about the Metamorphose Tea Party in Vienna, which took place on the 17th October.
The first big surprise came for me a few weeks before the event, when I found out that I was chosen to be a model for the fashion show! I had only modeled once before and when I sent my application in summer, I wasn't really expecting much. To be so lucky twice in a row? I was really surprised, and very, very happy.

It was also kinda ironic, because I had waited to get a dress for my own outfit for a long time, because I thought if I get picked as a model, I will plan a more simple outfit to make the outfit changes easier. Sure enough, after I had bought a dress on lacemarket in September, I found out I would get to be a model shortly afterwards, haha! But everything turned out fine in the end.
