Taking selfies, graduating, and being sushi plebs!

Guys, I'm literally melting now! It's 32C/90F and I can't cope. Kasia, maybe if you'd stop wearing only black clothes? Nah, I can't compromise on my aesthetics (thanks Dan Howell, for teaching me the real lesson here!), gotta stay in black. Well, anyway, as I can stay at home it's not that much of an issue. I mean, it's still hot but at least I am not gonna get sunburnt, so well, let it be. There are literally so many things to talk about, I have been so lazy lately so I didn't post anything and now I've got thousands ideas and I'm not sure.. where do I begin? Well, let's just start from stating that today's SOTD is Happy Little Pill by Troye Sivan. This is so mindblowingy beautiful, I can't even express how much I love this piece. 

Now, getting to the point (is there any?), what happened on the 13th of July was my graduation! YAY. Like, seriously, yaaaaaaaaaaay. I am now officially an English-Russian applied linguistics graduate and I've got my bachelor's degree. This is cool, really, really cool. I can remember the second year when I had to wake up at 4 am cause my classes were starting at 7:30 am and as I was commuting by train, I had to wake up earlier than everybody. Not only that, my classes were ending at 6 pm and my train back home was at 8 pm, I was home around 9 pm, so go figure. I couldn't really afford renting a flat, so commuting by train it was. And honestly, I wanted to quit like million times, but somehow I made it. I cannot even imagine how happy I am that I managed to graduate. So now I'm supposed to be good at English and Russian, well, mission accomplished? ;)

Well, anyway, we didn't really have any ceremonies or anything like that, I suppose that's a real thing after you've obtained your master's degree, but my little partying thing begins today - bonfires and drinking and being slightly too enthusiastic, let it start, it's gonna be fab. Oh dear, I don't even know what this blog post is about, I'm getting rambly again, aren't I? Anyway, there are some photos I wanted to include in this note and if you like pictures as much as I do, stay here, cause there are plenty of fine bits from the last two weeks coming:

Apart from this one, it's actually vvv old, like three years old, I guess. Cliché pretty much, but I like it.
This is the kind of makeup I did a couple of days ago, I was thinking of something sweet and summerish, I don't know whether I succeeded or not. Tell me guys if I did or didn't? :) 

Same makeup, a different, supposedly kinda romantic, pose which is not my best one I guess, ouch!
Okay, so yesterday me, my brother, Karolina, and her brother went to the city and I tried sushi for the v first time. It was tasty, even though we ordered takeaway and ate it in K's car with our hands like some sushi plebs, haha! 

And going to the city also meant buying stuff. I knew I couldn't spend money as I am going to the UK soon and thus I need cash but this one was really cheap, plus you just cannot not buy another black tshirt, as I said before - aesthetics!
Yesterday's makeup, I did a good job here, I have to admit! I love how my cheeks look, my eyes are pretty summerish if you ask me, a cool look on me I'd say. What do you think?
Same makeup, a slightly different pose. I love my nose piercing, aaah!
I took it yesterday while Karolina was driving. I was feeling kinda cool, cause my cousin, Szymon, who is fifteen by the way, got into P!ATD, FOB, BMTH, AM and so we were driving back home and singing Uma Thurman or Do I wanna know?, just how awesome is that?  

Just a rose in my aunt's garden that I found particularly interesting, I took this the evening before defending my dissertation, I was SO scared. 

Some artistic Oreos to brighten your day perhaps? ;)

Took this while walking by the Brda river in Bydgoszcz. This building is actually our Opera Nova. It looks lovely, imho. 

And this, ladies and gentlemen, is the taste of victory! That's the coffee I had after having graduated, it's called Cookies and it's v yummy!

So there you have it, the things that have been keeping me busy for the last couple of days. Summing up, I am extremely happy that I finally graduated. I am also a bit scared about my going to England but it, too, should be all cool and I'll be amazed and happy about how I can listen to the real English and all. Tell me, guys, that it's gonna be that way! Also, one thing always bothers me - using all these abbreviations, such as or imho or btw. Do you mind it? If any of you follows me on Twitter or Tumblr, you definitely know that's how I write most of the time, I don't even use capitals letters. As I started writing a blog, I figured out (with a little help from Izzy!) that this blog is serious business and therefore I should keep it as grammatically correct as possible, but I'd like to know if you guys mind these abbreviations. I like using them from time to time cause it sounds more like me and I'd like to have a certain style of writing. I don't know, let me know, please. Hope you enjoyed this blog post! 

Stay beautiful,
Kasia xx

  3. Congrats on graduating!! And it's so hot here too (though less than over there haha) and I still go out in all black most of the time :P Love your pics as usual, was going to do something similar at the end of the month and try and sum up July in photos I took :) Also yay you're coming to England! How long are you here for? I can recommend places for you to go :) x

    1. Thank you for your comment! I was planning to make the summing up a month in pictures a real thing, so I am waiting for July to end and then I'll be doing it every month I guess. :) And I'm staying in England for two months, I'm working there and hopefully by the end of September I'll have some time to do some sightseeing, so your help and company would be very much welcome. :) xx
