I – Inside Jokes: I’m pretty sure whoever has to listen to me and my friends must think that we are all nuts. Sometimes our conversations exist almost exclusively of inside jokes. As ridiculous as it is, I love it. The jokes may be totally stupid, but never fail to make me smile.

J – June: I couldn’t think of anything cool or interesting for the letter J, so I chose June, the month I was born in. I always liked it, almost summer but not yet too hot. During university my excitement over June has been ebbing. It’s when all the exams for the summer semester take place meaning that it’s nothing but stress and I hardly ever get to leave the house.

K – Kitchen: My favourite room! I love to cook and to bake so the kitchen is the place to be for me. Whenever I’m at a home center I glance longingly at all those amazing kitchens with all the appliances a cook could ever dream of. Continue reading
