Placan said...

I love to do lots of things! So many ideas popped in my head just few seconds ago! But I have to say the one that surprised myself the most. Drawing. It's something SO frustrating... well at least it used to be.. I have to do it for my college course all the time. But I've found myself actually wanting to draw something without feeling like it's just for my studies so often recently... It's amazing what can happen in such a little time! Four months ago I was just dreaming about being able to enjoy drawing...

But there's nothing better than clear water when you dive in at 6 in the morning for summer swim. It's gorgeous.
