Wednesday Wishes. Summer mode on!

Looking back, it’s been almost two months since i’ve had a Wednesday Wishes post! And yet, that definitely doesn’t mean there aren’t any wishes to write down. Far from it! I guess i’m into summer mode? I’m actually not sure why i skipped these… No idea at all… Well anyway, let’s get back on track here. I’ve updated the other WW posts clearing out the ones i’ve accomplished. There still are a bunch more to go, but i’ve still cleared quite a few. Be proud of small victories, right?

I guess this round of WW will be more personal rather than related to the letterpress and packaging shops; that’s because we’ll soon be closing them for our summer vacation! So as i was saying, summer mode on! I’ve been dreaming about this vacation since the beginning of the year! Let’s see!

wednesday wishes summer mode

* Make detailed plans for the upcoming holiday:

research good restaurants for good food (actually what i mean by that is also finding foods that i haven’t tried yet) Did research good restaurants, though it turned out to be useless. We found the absolute best restaurant on our first try and we just kept eating there choosing from their varied menu! Yum!

research water parks nearby – i really want to go to one! Since i wear contact lenses for my bad eyesight, i’ve always kinda avoided places like that, but not anymore. I’ll just take 2 pairs of lenses with me just in case i lose one in the water! Mwuahaha! Done the research, but never got to see the water park; i’m not really disappointed though…

i’ve already decided on the extra trip we’re going to make and that’s a short cruise and visiting another Greek island The cruise was a lot of fun and i got to eat on that island the absolute best tuna salad i’ve ever eaten in my entire life! 

hopefully learn to swim a bit better. Yes, i do want to go to a water park even if i can’t swim. I can … float on the salty Greek seas though; does that count? This is also a bit of a “face your fears” kinda thing. I did swim, but i can’t say it’s better than last year… Hmmm…

take long walks, take lots of photos, turn phone off, relax, laugh, dance, live the moment! Done and done and done!

* Be more opinionated. Actually maybe “opinionated” is too strong of a word, but i probably need it like that. I actually think i’m getting there. There were a few incidents that made me realize i’m starting to get a voice and be heard; hopefully i’ll be able to keep this up.

* Go to the local water park i have my eyes on! Yes, i’m definitely very into the summer mode, but that water park looks like a lot of fun!

* Go at the mountains again and visit places i haven’t seen before. There are actually quite a few i have in mind for this.

* Start a “Visiting Romania” section on the blog and post photos of what i see. This really is a beautiful country and hopefully my poor photography skills will be enough to show it.

* Make a working work space at home. This one is a must. I can’t always be in the studio and i do a lot of work from home also – when it comes to designing new letterpress business cards templates, wedding invitations, RSVPs, save the dates etc. , as well as keeping in touch with clients. Well the problem is my current desk at home doesn’t really work for me; a work space should inspire you and make you want to actually work. Well my work space is not comfortable and inspires me to watch TV really…

* Eat watermelon! I absolutely love watermelon and i recently saw a sort of a food project where they made little Christmas Trees out of watermelon (it’s Christmas in July after all), but for the life of me, i can’t remember where i saw it! I guess that’s the downside of reading too many blogs?

* I already have “make salads” on another WW list, but this time i have to add something: once again, something i’ve seen somewhere, either on a blog or on Pinterest. Make little mushrooms out of radishes! Sounds interesting, right?

* This is something else i have on another list, but i must write it again; maybe this time i’ll actually do it: make lemonade!! Lots of it!

Well as i was saying, there’s hardly anything related to work; i only have one thing in mind and that’s summer fun! I keep feeling that i forgot something, but then again, there’s always next Wednesday.

The Funky Studio team wishes you, as always, a colorful day!

  1. Oh yes watermelon is awesome! We’ve been eating fruit salads almost daily right now, cantaloup + watermelon + nectarine + banana yum, yum!

    1. Ok my mouth is officially watering now! :)) But i must confess i had to look “cantaloup” up because i had no idea what that was! Over here we just call it “yellow melon”. :D

    1. Yep, yep, water plans, here i come! :D
      That’s actually just one more reason for me to love Greece! We always get free watermelon when we eat at restaurants in Greece and i’m thrilled about that and i think everyone in the world should do it too! :))

  2. Sounds like a lot of fun summer plans in the works! I’d love to see photos of Romania! Have fun at the water parks :)

    1. Oh and the plans keep piling up the more i think about it! :D I’m actually currently working on the first article for the Romania visiting section. We went at the mountains 2 weekends ago and i took a bunch of photos. Sorting through them basically feels like holding the world on my shoulders… :))) But i will definitely get there! Thank you so much!

    1. Thank you so much! They keep on coming to me the more i think about it! :D
      Watermelon lover here too! :)

    1. Totally agree!! We can work during the rest of the year, so we should just have a 3 months long summer vacation like when we were in school! :D

    1. Woohoo watermelon lovers unite! :D I’ll try to make those watermelon Christmas trees and post some photos also. :D

  3. You got a lot of things on your wishlist Andreea! And that’s great if it works for you! I also have a to do list everyday but it only gaves me the headaches :)))
    Were are you going in vacation btw?

    1. Oh i love lists! They sort of keep me more organized and it’s also an awesome feeling when you mark them as “accomplished”. :D
      We’re going in Paralia Katerini this time around. And i can’t wait!! :D

  4. I can put some on my to do list as well!
    For the lemonade and other fresh juices, I make a large quantity and then put it in cube ice bags in the freezer, and just mix them with room-temperature water and sugar when needed. Saves a lot of precious time.
    I need to be more opinionated too, if you have any tricks I’m all ears! Also, I’m looking for nice places in Romania to visit too, maybe a easy mountain trail… any suggestions?

    1. Oh that’s actually a great idea! Why didn’t i think about this before? :)) The lemonade ice cubes are definitely something else i must add to the list! I actually had something similar on… another list (i have hundreds of lists!): i want to put pieces of fruits in those ice cubes trays, then add water and let them freeze. Then, when you want to drink something refreshing just pour water with a bit of lemon and add some of those ice cubes: by the time you finish drinking the water you also get to eat the piece of fruit. :D

      About being more opinionated, i think i’ve been trying to do this all my life. But because i hate confrontations i tend to let a lot of things slide. I’ve decided it’s time to face my fears not only with swimming but with this one too. So basically what i want to do is stubbornly stick by my convictions when i know for a fact that i’m right. I think it’s the best way to go. :D

      I have lots of Romania visiting suggestions actually! :D The places we visited 2 weekends ago are both beautiful and easy mountain trails so hopefully it will be useful for you when i get it up here. As i visit more places, i’ll keep on adding posts over here. :D

    1. Oh thank you so much! :D
      I love mint in lemonade too! And it’s so refreshing during hot summer days! :)
