Writing this entry on a lovely Sunday morning. The whole weekend has been splendid which is perfect as it's Angélique and I noces de coton, ie our first anniversary ♥ A year already... wow. We're treating ourselves to a fancy and historical restaurant in Paris called Le Train Bleu: it opened in 1901 and was built for the 1900 Universal Exhibition, later on it was classified as Historic Monument (in 1972, the Internet tells me). We're pretty excited!

Otherwise, the week has been pretty busy with work and social outings. Oh, cool thing about work! I'll be heading to Germany mid-october for the first meeting of a European project which I'm involved in. The meeting is in Kiel, north of Germany (not that far from Denmark) and the next ones (over the course of three years so, you know, plenty of time for things to change) should be held in England, Holland and Denmark. I so approve of this ;)

Fandom wise... nothing much has changed since my last entry. Except, no I did finish Game of Thrones s7 (best season of the show as far as I'm concerned, I absolutely loved it) and I've just started The Good Place, as in I watched the pilot. Right now, I'm pretty obsessed with Lethal Weapon as season 2 premieres on Tuesday *__* It's going to be a bit tough having to wait a whole week between episodes. Last year, I came to the show rather late, meaning the whole season was at my disposal so I basically watched the whole thing in a matter of a few days but I suppose it'll make the experience more intense that way and well, longer lasting. Which is a good thing, actually.

To make a long story short, I'm just happy to have LW back real soon *clings to bosom*

Hope you're all having a lovely Sunday too.

ETA: Omg! I'd totally forgotten that ST:Discovery premiered tonight! Please, let me enjoy that new series as much as I do ST:TOS, I'm so looking forward to getting into a new ST storyline. (Although, I'm still enjoying Star Trek Continues and will continue (ha!) to do so, no matter what)

Massive hugs to those on my flist who are having a rough time at the moment *hugs*

My week has been a bit intense (nothing negative, though). As it happens, I handed my Master's thesis on september, 1st (right on time, too) and yesterday was the Big Day. I left for Poitiers on Wednesday evening and on Thursday morning, I faced the three members of my jury as well as 27 other students and I defended aforementioned thesis. (I wasn't expecting such a crowd, to be honest, I thought it would be just the jury and me, talk about a shock when I entered the room lol).

But it went well. And since it was the last thing I needed to do (to pass) to get this brand new degree, well, it's done, I've graduated :) I mean, I don't have the diploma in my possession as of yet as it's too soon, obviously, but still. Yatta! It feels kinda weird, to be honest. What am I going to do with all this spare time omg? I know what I'm going to do, I'll finally start getting classes to get my driving licence - this is the next item on my To Do list for now. Also, I'm about to start my third year of Italian classes early october too. It's ok, I won't get bored, I think ;)

Speaking of not getting bored, I need to finish GoT s7 (I'm halfway through) and start The Expanse s2. Then once Netflix releases it, I'll watch The Good Place (I've heard some good things about it, I'm intrigued now) and, of course, on the 26th, Lethal Weapon comes back to our screen.

Definitely not getting bored, indeed ;)
