My last weekend was great! I did so many things. I usually start planning my weekend around Thursday or so. On Friday night I had my live Q&A Friday with you guys! It was great! I answered your questions, we chatted for some time and I got to know more about you guys! After that, I went to the movies with a friend. I watched Wonder Woman for the third time! It was great! After the movie was over, it was a little bit late, so I just came back home and went to bed.
On Saturday I woke up really early, around 6 a.m. Last Saturday was very special! I had a photo shooting with my friends! I got up early because I had many things to do and I wanted to make sure I arrived at the park on time. So I got up at 6, took a shower, brushed my teeth and had some tea. Then I baked my famous healthy chocolate cookies because my friends really wanted to try them, so this was the perfect occasion for that. After that, I combed my hair, put on makeup, got dressed, got my backpack with extra clothes and shoes and got an uber to Ibirapuera. Ibirapuera is a famous park in São Paulo. I met my friends there at 9:40.
We hired a photographer who was very friendly and fun. She took many pictures of us. It was hard to concentrate sometimes because when my friends and I are together, we pretty much make jokes about everything.
At noon, we stopped for a picnic. Everybody was starving. I hadn’t eaten breakfast, can you imagine how hungry I was? We were all a bit grumpy by this time. It was super fun! The food was great!
We finished the photo shooting around 3 p.m. Most of my friends went home. Two friends of mine and I decided to go to a restaurant to grab something to eat and drink. We talked for a few hours more and then my friend dropped me off at home. I was exhausted! I took a long nap and woke up at 10p.m. Then when I woke up, I was still tired. I ate some fruit and then went to sleep again.
On Sunday I woke up early too, around a.m. . After I woke up, I didn’t do much. I was supposed to shoot some videos for youtube, but I was not in the mood. I made myself some breakfast, read the news online, drank some tea and prepared some articles for my blog.
At noon, I made my lunch. I really wanted to eat a veggie burger, but I decided to cook my own meal and just buy a nice dessert after it. I made myself some chicken and salad and it was really good. After lunch, I bought myself an ice cream, walked around my neighborhood for some time and then went back home. I watched some TV series episodes and took a nap. I woke up around 6 p.m and felt guilty, you know, I didn’t do much on my Sunday, I don’t like when I do that. I did my laundry and made myself a ham and cheese sandwich. I called my parents around 9 p.m and then went to bed.
All in all my weekend was good. I saw my friends, watched a good movie, did my laundry, took my nap… how about some questions now?
