I'm having a hard time processing that it's already mid-October. When did this even happen? It's freezing cold in Paris at the moment (which makes waking up and going to class SO much harder in the morning) and it's starting to feel very much like autumn so I thought I'd share just a couple of summer-y and colourful snaps from Lebanon – I'd do anything to be back by the beach right now.

Oh hey, look who's back! After leaving Lebanon and coming back to Paris, I decided to take a little social media break (blog included) just to clear my head and to take care of a couple of things before college starts again. Now that my 'break' is over, I thought it was about time I shared some new photos. These were taken last month at my grandmother's house in Bazbina – you can check out last year's short post for more photos!
Regarding college, my classes started on Monday and it's all very exciting and stressful at the same time. It's my last year of my master's degree (AH!) and yet it still feels like I just graduated from high school. It really does. Seriously. Okay, enough of that... How's everyone doing?

I spent my last two weeks in the countryside in northern Lebanon, visiting both my grandmas, picking figs, chasing sunsets and as always, snapping photos. And fortunately we've been very lucky with the weather; not too hot during the day and a bit cool at night, just the way I like it. I think I've enjoyed the countryside this time around more than the past couple of years for some reason. Maybe because the weather was perfect? Or maybe it's because I've been away for too long? Who knows.
Anyway... I'm back in Beirut now, currently blogging from my bedroom! I took so many photos since I've arrived but I've been trying to spend less time on my computer this summer – especially since most of my studies involve a computer – and make the most out of my remaining two weeks in Lebanon, visiting family, catching up with friends and taking in as much natural vitamin D as I can before heading back to Paris!

Left the rain back in Paris and made it to sunny Beirut! It feels so good being back in Lebanon and getting to spend some time with my family and childhood friends. Before sharing a couple of snaps from Beirut, here's what I've enjoyed reading (and watching) this week.
- Blurry Paintings of People on the Beach by American painter Philip Barlow.
- I'm a big fan of surfing so when I see two of my favorite surfers in the same video, I click.
- Dreamy photos from Yosemite National Park.
- Oh my. Gluten-free Raspberry-Strawberry swiss roll on Our Food Stories.
- How Louise Ljungberg's photo series uses color to personify feeling.
