I’m still alive!

It has been so long since the last time I have written anything in here. I guess, too much has been going on lately. Changes in personal life, changes at work, at uni, to put in simpler: too many changes. Due to so many things happening recently, I didnt have enough time to catch up with reading, to be honest the last book that I have actually managed to finish was Cloud Atlas ( it still deserves a proper review – it was just toooo good!). I have tried to Finnish Pelican Brief during my flights home last month. Still home like a half of the book left.

I have finished my 2nd year, hopefully, I will be able to take intellectual property law as my additional subject starting from 3rd year. Finally, I would be able to concentrate more on what exactly I want to do with my degree in the future.

I have so much to tell about my recent trips, however during past few months it was so hard for me to find  enough time to get to it properly. I hope, that with October, I will finally find time to explain all the big changes that have been going on for a while now. Before that, let me share one of the best photos I managed to take this summer (and yes, SURPRISINGLY, this is from Paris, France!)

About being busy

First, I would like to apologize for neglecting the blog for the past 2 weeks. Because of the uni I didn’t have enough time to focus in writing anything constructive. So what has been going on? I moved (again) so it will take me couple of day to settle in the new flat. I’ve been trying to read as much as I can, and finally managed to finish Mistborn trilogy  Originally I have planned to post a separate review of the Hero Of Ages and a my personal summary of the whole series, but I couldn’t find enough time to do that. Perhaps I will try to share my thoughts of the Mistborn series-world after finishing the Alloy of Law which I am nearly finishing reading .

In between of these 2 weeks I have tackled Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell, which literally blew my mind away. It has been a long time since I had to read through the nights in order to find out the end of the story in the plot. I am impressed by the simplicity in which the author combined the stories as a one big picture. I am planning to watch the movie based on the book by the Wachowski brothers, hope they will not let me down, however the expectations are VERY high!

2012 was a pretty exhausting year for me. 3 times I have been changing flats, moving from south London (finally) to peaceful and quiet (well, most of the times…) suburbs of north-west London. Surviving through first year of law school was sometimes more that I could have handled. But I got through.  I managed to go outside the UK for my holiday, I was struggling but I found time to read books during 2012. One thing that I didn’t have the time for (or didn’t want to have) was running.

I loved to run since I was 10 I guess. During my years that I have been into long-distance swimming at school, and later on in high school, when I was taking taekwon-do  really seriously. I had been always running. And even though I didn’t run for over 15 months already (excluding short attends to coming back to running last spring just before my finals at uni)

I told myself couple of weeks ago that my biggest and most important new year’s resolution for 2013 will be running. I am setting myself a goal to achieve 100 miles for 2013 by the end of the year, with a little help of Runtastic I should be able to tell after a months or so if that is possible or not. First step: buying myself a decent pair of Asics.
