In Life

001: Still trying to adjust to the time change here in Berlin, despite being back for some time now and have been spending my time trying to get back into the rhythm of things.
002: Started to slowly work on the re-design of my living room (expect some photos soon) by changing around the arrangement of some of the furniture and putting two rugs down.
003: One of my best guy friends/brother-from-another-mother has been here for the last week visiting friends and family here in Berlin, and has been popping by throughout the week. Kind of reminds me of what it would be like to have a roommate a bit and it’s been great to catch up after almost a year.
004: Getting really good at snuggling on the sofa with my cats, cuppa, and a movie/netflix. Currently watching the shit out of Harry Potter (don’t hate). #Lifegoalz, I know.
