2011 has begun with a little bit of everything.

I had a lovely Christmas (with homemade tiramisú included)* and a lot of wonderful presents for Epiphany, which means I finally got the DVD with special features of Sherlock Holmes and three awesome books I don't know when I could read properly because this year presents itself as a tough one. On the one hand, my employment contract with university has expired which I knew it had to happen but it's depressing all the same. And on the other hand, I ought to finish writing my PhD thesis before August. That may look like a reasonable deadline (one I decided, indeed) but I feel stressed out already. Ugh... I'd rather not think too much about it but people all around seem delighted reminding me every chance they have. It's tiring and it's just January...

That's one of the reasons I chose to spend the evening of New Year's Day watching comforting films, beginning with Frank Capra's You can't take it with you. It was years since I watched it and the philosophy of that film always cheers me up :D A Jeeves and Wooster book also helped a lot~

And to keep on with the great things of these last days, thank you so much [livejournal.com profile] louiselux for the pretty card! I loved it! <3 I'm sorry that in the end I couldn't send you one back :(

Anyway, I hope you all began the year with good and shinning moments. Let's hope 2011 will be a very good one!

*If some of you are interested, and as it was me who prepared the tiramisú, here it is the recipe )
