My Upcoming(?) Graduation Day


One day... I don't know if I really want this day to come, but what I know is that I can't stand any more deadlines, reviews, experiments and studying. At least for this week. Holy cow! A day will come when we will be grateful even for our once-in-a-while satisfactory experiment results, for these small groovy surprises that we earned fair and square. We are nuts. And we (still) feel good about it.

Μια μέρα... Δεν ξέρω αν πραγματικά θέλω να έρθει αυτή μέρα, ξέρω όμως πως δεν μπορώ άλλες διορίες, παράδοσης, εργασίες, πειράματα και διάβασμα. Τουλάχιστον για αυτή την εβδομάδα. Σε λίγο θα λέμε και ευχαριστώ που καμιά φορά τα αποτελέσματα των πειραμάτων μας είναι ελπιδοφόρα, που είμαστε τόόσο τυχεροί για να ζούμε αυτά τα μικρά ευχάριστα μουσικά διαλείμματα. Αυτά είναι δα. Είμαστε εν δυνάμει βιολόγοι και με τρομάζει λίγο που (ακόμα) το απολαμβάνουμε.

(3rd person statements sound so official, love it)

She founded In Whirl of Inspiration, back in 2011 when she was (just) a biology student, in the island of Crete. In Whirl of Inspiration started as a creative and writing outlet for when studying molecules, became too monotonous. Recently, she started writing a children book and a not-so-children's book about the civil war in Greece. She has a soft spot for cheese, elder people, and (her own) jokes, but can't tell any as she ruins them by laughing too early. She enjoys sharing advice for eating healthier, or inspiring people to cover themshelves with plants, color and confetti.

Feel free to email her at, or find her on Instagram and Twitter. (breaking the 3rd person narration to thank you properly)

Thank you so much for reading!
