Laouen get ma ranndi newez!

So I moved house! It's been almost a week now that I live in my new place, and I am so happy with it! I felt in love with the place the first time I walked from the station to the house and saw all the pine trees that are surrounding it, but now that I am actually living here it is even better than I could have imagined. I saw it as an advantage that I already knew my new housemates, but I couldn't have dreamed that it would be so relaxed to live together: we all just live our own programmes, but when we are all in the house we have dinner together, we hang out in the living room, and talk a lot about Celtic, linguistics, beer and life. I do not have at all the feeling I was intruding in other people's lifes in moving in with them; I also feel very much grounded already because I have my own room (properly heated! no more cold!) with my own furniture, all my books and my cd's in their cases, proudly showing off on their Ikea shelves...I am a born materialist and I am the happiest when I am surrounded by my own stuff. 'Home is where my books are'.
In this place, where I can start my days with stretching out before my window, watching 'my' trees, I feel stronger and more confident than I have felt for a long time. I found back my love for and creativity in cooking, I have the discipline to do my homework and to shut off the computer afterwards instead of harvesting cows in Farmville, and I listen to some of my favourite but long-neglected cds in doing so: classical music and ethereal. I have rediscovered for example Irfan, Les Tisserands, the Cantigas de Santa Maria and everything by Jordi Savall. And I read books! Like, sitting on the bank with a glass of ale, a bag of crisps and a good book! It had been ages ago that I found the tranquility for such an activity.
I have the feeling I will have a very happy time in this place. I even feel less homesick, probably because I am surrounded by a landscape that looks a lot like some of my favourite parts in Breizh...

For now I am going to enjoy a free weekend: this week was the last one of the second trimester, and today I finished my last paper. Monday the new trimester will start with Medieval Latin, Historical Linguistics of British Celtic, and a 'personal paper', not related to an official subject in the curriculum, on gwerziou (Breton ballads) from the Vannetais. I am sure I am going to have a lot of fun!

PS: W000T I am purple! In fact I am blue and magenta (=a dark shade of pink) and I do like those colours and wear them a lot. Cool quiz!
you are darkorchid

Your dominant hues are blue and magenta. You're the one who goes to all the parties but doesn't quite fit in at every one... you know what you want, but are afraid of what the world might think of it. You're a little different and that's okay with them, and if you're smart it's okay with you too.

Your saturation level is higher than average - You know what you want, but sometimes know not to tell everyone. You value accomplishments and know you can get the job done, so don't be afraid to run out and make things happen.

Your outlook on life is brighter than most people's. You like the idea of influencing things for the better and find hope in situations where others might give up. You're not exactly a bouncy sunshine but things in your world generally look up.
