Discovered that my uni is more tech savvy than I thought
In one of my classes we learned to use a translation tool called Trados, and the license for it is tied to the school Wi-Fi. Luckily, my university has its own VPN application that allows you to connect to the university Wi-Fi remotely. Before I discovered that, I had to spend all day every day at uni to work on my translation assignments and it was very tiring. I’m happy that I don’t have to do that anymore, and that I can work on things from home. We have roughly three translation assignments a week and it is a lot of work. I also volunteered to be a student representative which in turn makes me even more busy. Should have thought twice about that before volunteering. At least my closest friend at uni is volunteering with me so I won’t be completely by myself.
Decided to give Glossybox another try
A couple of years ago, I had a running subscription for Glossybox and I was really happy with it for a while. Then I felt like the items were just constant repeats and not worth the money put into them and I decided to unsubscribe from it. Recently, I decided to resubscribe because their Birthday Edition box looked like it would be good, and I was right. I posted my review of it on my second, more casual blog and you can read it by clicking here.
The cutest birthday gift
My friend gifted me the cutest things! On the left you can see a bag of Skooma, which is actually loose leaf tea! It is inspired by the substance found in the Elder Scrolls games, and it is a loose leaf tea that tastes like peaches. I like it a lot, and I would definitely repurchase it myself when I run out of it.
The other gift is a cat mug. It features a built-in tea steeper, and it is so cute. The handle is a cat tail, and the lid spins so that the steeper doubles as a stirring spoon. I have been using it pretty often ever since I received it. It just makes it even more fun to drink the Skooma tea since Skooma is most often used by the Khajiit race in the game, a bunch of humanoid cats.
Fell hard for Umbrella Academy
I was told that I should check out umbrella academy. I had heard about it prior because I used to be a hardcore fan of My Chemical Romance and Gerard Way, but I had never gotten around to actually reading the comics. I decided to give the series a shot and I fell in love immediately. My friends expected me to love both Klaus and Vanya, but somehow my favorite ended up being Five. The actor did such a phenomenal job for being so young, and it honestly feels like the role was written just for him. I don’t think anyone else would be able to portray Five in the same way. I also decided to buy the first volume of the comics after I finished the series. I haven’t had the chance to read through it yet, but I’m sure it will be good too.
