35mm film diary, may through early august 2021

Summertime highlights

I finally got around to having a couple of rolls of film I shot in Paris this summer developed! Some memorable moments:

  • I had my fingers tattooed! I’d been wanting to do this for agggges but was hesitant to take the plunge as it’s a well-known fact that finger tattoos can fade quite quickly and tend to require more touch-ups than tattoos placed elsewhere on the body. But I wannnted them and after heaps and heaps of research (meaning I watched like fifteen Youtube videos on the subject) decided to just fucking do it. I have zero regrets and I am obsessed. I also got two other new tattoos in June, a teeny little penguin on my ankle and a cardigan tattoo on my left arm (because I am a #Swiftie4lyfe).
  • I took and passed(!?) the DALF C1! So I officially have a C1 level in French, wooo! I technically didn’t need to sit this exam as I already attend a French university and study entirely in French but I just really wanted to prove to myself that I could, you know, do this. So I signed up and I studied super fucking hard and I took the exam and six weeks later was notified that I passed. Yay!
  • I hung out with friends. Drank way too much coffee. Had my nails painted a few times. Nail art is my new obsession.
  • I also finally put the finishing touches on the “art wall” in my apartment! I’m really very pleased with the result.

Here are a few more photos, not tons. I was so preoccupied with studying for the DALF (and also just being really depressed afterward because I was convinced I’d failed for some reason?) that I didn’t take very many photos. That’s okay though, I still managed to shoot a teeny bit, seeee:
