This month was filled with lots of good food! What a surprise, haha, but we had a lot of occasions to celebrate.
First we took my mother for her birthday to La Cubanita (tapas) as a surprise. I went a second time to La Cubanita to catch up with some friends. It was fun to hang out with them. Then I had tapas at another restaurant with my book club, which was great as always!
We went out for dinner for my father's birthday (sushi) and then to celebrate it with the family we ordered some food and I got a fantastic burger with fries. For father's day we went to a world restaurant where you could eat all kinds of food, so that was awesome.
And yesterday I had sushi with a few of my colleagues and it was nice! It made me feel really accepted and they asked me for Facebook (I was scared to ask them to be friends before :'))
Other things I did:
I had my yearly review (been working there for 6 months now) and they are really positive. I got some good compliments, like: you are exactly how I imagine a microbiology analyst. I work accurately and I pick up new things quickly. It's also great how she 'deals' with my shyness. She told me to do everything at my own pace, to not force myself and just be myself; and she believes I fit in the team.
I got my ear pierced! Finally! I'm scared of needles, but I've been talking about getting one for years and I finally decided to do it. I got an auricle, which is basically a lower helix. You can see it in the picture here, together with my new hair! It did not turn out how I wanted it, but I'm loving the purple color.
