If you were in central London this Saturday you may have come across zombies walking around in the streets. Hopefully, you didn’t get scared, as these were not real zombies but everyday people dressed like zombies celebrating the World Zombie Day. Being a fan of zombies myself, I couldn’t miss out on this event, where I went dressed like a zombie student. Didn’t really spent much time on my costume and makeup, as I thought that it was ok, but after seeing the other zombies I regretted it! Some people were over the top, they looked like real zombies, like the apocalypse has arrived!
As summer is now officially over (for us Greek people September is still summer!), I thought of writing a #tbt post about my summer holidays in Lisbon. Apart from visiting Paros this summer, I also went to Lisbon with my boyfriend. We went for five days in the beginning of July and we stayed in a nice hostel in the beautiful neighbourhood of ‘Bairro Alto’, which means ‘Old Town’. Its narrow, stone pebbled streets and the scenic buildings with the traditional tiles make it the most famous neighbourhood of Lisbon. We had such an amazing time there, I fell in love with the city and I can now say for sure that it is my number one European city (among London, Barcelona, Madrid, Paris, Budapest, Frankfurt, Milan, Athens and Odense).
I think that everyone who works in an office is jealous of the Google offices! Our office is not even close to Google’s, but still, it is amazing! We have a bean bag, a cork board with funny pictures pinned, colourful bunting flags, a small popcorn maker for the microwave and of course a projector! Its main use is for screen sharing during meetings, but we also use it to watch movies after work. And because we can do that we thought of founding a movie club where colleagues can come together after work and share a movie experience!
When I first heard that they are going to release a new season of X-Files I got soooo excited! X-Files was my favourite series as a kid, I used to watch it late at night on TV, usually with my cousin Konstantina, even though we weren’t allowed to watch it, ’cause we got really scared and couldn’t sleep!
So, before watching the new season (season 10), I told myself that I need to catch up with the old ones, remember what has happened so far, all the details about the alien conspiracy and also remember how things were between Mulder and Scully. Did they end up together?
I have never run in my life and I always believed that I hate running. I was considering it boring and every time I saw someone running thought ‘How can he/she run? Isn’t he/she bored?’. I like exercising though, I really like going to the gym, where I mostly attend classes like circuits, boxfit and yoga, and I also like cycling. But running, no! Until one Friday afternoon, my friend Radu (btw Radu this is your second guest appearance in this blog!) asked my housemates and me in our Whats App group if we fancy joining him in the 5K Park Run on Saturday morning. Park Run is a weekly event happening in parks all over London, where people, guess what? Run! My housemates Claudia and Dan usually go with him in this event, but I had never joined them ’cause I had never run in my life. But that evening something happened. Something made me say ‘Why not? Why not try it and if I don’t like it I can say for sure that I actually hate running!’ So I answered YES and started preparing myself mentally for what I was about to experience!
