Think of me tomorrow at 10 am guys, for that is when I will be taking my very first university lecture at Uni ZH 🙂 After last week’s lengthy recap, I am keeping today’s nice and short! My weekend started on Thursday, after orientation, and was quite low-key but a great way to start the school year. I’ve been enjoying these link-ups, for I just noticed in the car earlier while trying to tell my dad about my weekend, that I sometimes forget what amazing things I actually accomplished…
As for Manicure Mondays, well, I haven’t forgotten about them, I just haven’t really been doing my nails at all lately. This week I am sporting “Make him Mine“, by OPI on my little fingers and toes and “Chicago Champagne Toast” on the rest of my fingernails (I promise to redo the manicure and post it next week, but I didn’t do a very good job this time). I did my nails as a last-minute decision on Saturday afternoon before passing out post-stretching, which is why my nails are not in the right condition to be photographed…But more on that later.
Thursday, after orientation, I decided to not go to dance (shocker) and had drinks with some new-found friends (and some very close, old ones) on campus.
Afterwards, I had plans to go eat sushi at Barfüsser and FINALLY remembered to take pictures!
I started eating fish a few months ago, and am slowly starting to call myself a (paleo) pescatarian. At home I still cook mainly vegan, because that’s just what I crave most, but when I am out and I feel like fish, I order it. And that night, I really wanted the Sesame Tempura Roll: Black Tiger prawn tempura, mayo, sesame outside (copied from the menu). I was often offered to try a piece when my friends got it and always found it amazing, so was really looking forward to ordering it myself, but eating an entire roll yourself is a whole other experience – In all honestly, I preferred receiving the odd piece when my friends were full because you really got to savour the delicacy. Having 8 pieces of something so exquisite makes it less special somehow. So please someone share it with me next time?
I also had the Avocado Nigiri and shared a Rainbow Roll (I don’t really like raw tuna so just ate the salmon).
My friends had Avocado Maki and a California Roll. I was the only one who pigged out, but I was also having a hungry day. Do you guys get that too? A super hungry day, especially when you don’t work out?
After dinner, I had drinks with my best friend and decided spontaneously to go to Nachtseminar at Plaza – it was Thursday after all 😉
Fun Fact: This Wednesday I will be handing out flyers for that party outside the Uni, that’s how much I love it 🙂
Friday I noticed I was coming down with a cold, and decided to play it safe and not workout, which meant that I yet again had “found an excuse” to not go to dance class…. sad really…so I stayed home, roasted more squash, and then met a friend at Starbucks for a Soy Matcha Green Tea Latte and some girl talk. While sitting there, I ran into some old school friends… it’s good to be home 🙂
After tea, we bought a fuzzy scarf at Zara and had dinner at Hiltl. Then I bought another Kabocha squash. I think I might have a problem…
Saturday I got up early and bought some last-minute school supplies and some groceries. Then I went to my usual stretching class, painted my nails and passed out. This is when I noticed that my flu was still around.. I was exhausted and just wanted to SLEEP.
Later I met my mom’s godson for dinner at Nagasui and then head out to the club “Härterei” for the party “Nasty Trash”. I had taken a video on Snapchat, but managed to forget to save it…. it was a great night but I left “early” and was in bed by 2.30 am! So unlike me 😉
On Sunday I picked up this Fluffy thing.
I got to dog-sit him for a night and spent loads of time playing with and cuddling this living fur-ball while trying to overcome my cold. It was a beautiful day and I was thus very thankful to have this little guy as a reason to enjoy the sunshine every few hours and not spend the entire day curled up in bed watching 30 rock, feeling sorry for myself.
I got my act together around 3 and head to Bodypump though. It was the last time doing release 90! I am so proud of my gains during the squat and chest tracks, that I cannot wait to master release 91.
Today I had the day off and spent the morning in my pyjamas, enjoying my last few hours of “no studying” a.k.a watching 30 rock and eating MORE SQUASH (I can’t believe I haven’t turned orange yet). In the afternoon I went to town for some juice with my BFF and then came home for more dog-walking, squash-eating and uni-preparing. I can now officially say my room is GORGEOUS! My closet however is a different story… I guess that is next on the to-do list.
I hope you had a great weekend too! I’ll speak to you after my first day (I already have some fun posts planned). Wish me luck!
With attitude and nail polish, Anoushé xoxo
