Blog-March: 7 Challenges
So, in my previous post, I told you about the challenge with the subjects to write about in March.
This time, I have to update you on 7 challenges. However, some of them have no signification for me, so the entries would have been too short. I'm not particularly fond of very short entries, so here I am.
First, let's see again which are the challenges or topics I'm supposed to write about, and right after that, I can start completing the tasks.
March 16 - International day of being nice while driving
I don't really know how else to translate that.
What can I say? I don't drive. I did notice how some drivers thank one another for being left in front, so I imitate that when drivers let me pass.
What I appreciate more than anything, is silent cars. Please, if you drive, don't blast the music that can be heard a mile away. Also, you don't need a very upset engine with a loud exhaust pipe or whatever it's called. That's very disturbing for passers-by.
If I ever learn how to drive and get a car, I'll search for the most silent car.
March 17 - Saint Patrick's day
We don't celebrate this in Romania. I have no idea what this celebration is all about. All I know is that people like to wear green if they celebrate.
-15 minutes later- reading about him, I learned he brought Christianity to the Irish people and he explained the Holy Trinity with a shamrock.
Despite all this, I was prepared to celebrate it because the previous day I had just completed the following skirt!
I should probably retake the photos of this skirt because the color is blue-ish here. But the real color is a deep BEAUTIFUL green. And I should also press the skirt.
On the upside, this picture was taken on this day, March 17.
March 18 - World tourism fair
I have nothing to say about this day. Going on a trip is a bit difficult currently. Travel has more purposes - relaxation, helping one refind some inspiration, and discover places.
I can't travel so I'll share 2 pictures instead. I think these pictures can help with discovering places and find some inspiration.
This is a street in the heart of Bucharest. I walk on this street a few times per month. This is the view to home. The date was Nov. 2020.
This picture was taken back in Aug. 2017 when we visited a cemetery near the city.
March 20 - World happiness day
I think this is what the French means.
These days I can get at least more cheerful when seeing certain items. That I received as a gift for this past Christmas. They are actually 2 items.
The first of them is a plate covered in strawberries, made by CLAYRE & EEF. This is NOT an affiliate link. This is a link to the official page of the brand. I wasn't able to find the plate there anymore.
While the above plate cheers me up while eating, it has nothing on the next item:
This picture doesn't come close to telling you how stinkin' cute these Christmas avocadoes are. They SO. FRICKIN'. ADORABLE!!!! I really have no words to express myself.
And since these are socks, the avocadoes become larger on the feet, then they return to the original size. These socks are from H&M. I wouldn't have bought them if I were looking to buy socks. But, BOY AM I GLAD I got them as a gift!
I hope you can cheer up seeing their happy faces.. I'm losing my mind over here...
March 21 - Spring Equinox
Welcome spring! I really feel and think spring came when I can see these flowers in bloom - see below.
These are not cherry blossoms, but very similar. They have a faint, nice smell that I can't have enough of.
March 22 - International Water Day
Water is important for life. Correct. But lately, I only had bad luck with water... I have nothing to say more about this.
March 25 -World Procrastination Day
How ironic that precisely on this day I get to post such a long entry. But that's because I use almost the whole year to procrastinate.
This is it for now. Most likely, the remaining challenges will be grouped in a single entry as well.
See you then!
