Last Week's Résumé


After a 4 blast trip in Athens for a neuron-immunology conference, where I was trying to make ends meet with an upcoming disease and some serious times-spending at Pasteur Institute, back in a student's reality with a one-day educational trip to south Crete, to observe different kind of stones for the geology lesson. Rock Campus 2012 you were awesome! And now the right time came. The time that I was dreaming for from the previous Tuesday on my way to Athens. The time for some serious  rest in my warm pijamas, in my gorgeous bed. Activating sleep mode... cy...a... ZzzZZzzz...

Μετά από ένα 4ήμερο ταξίδι αστραπή στην Αθήνα για ένα συνέδριο νευροβιολογίας και ανοσολογίας, όπου πάλευα να την βγάλω καθαρή ανάμεσα στην ίωση που κοντοζύγωνε και στις ουκ-ολίγες ώρες  που περνούσαμε στο Ινστιτούτο Παστέρ, πίσω στην φοιτιτική πραγματικότητα με μια μονοήμερη εκδρομή στην νότια Κρήτη για την παρατήρηση πετρωμάτων στα πλαίσια του μαθήματος της Γεωλογίας. Rock Campus 2012, ήσουν μια ολοκληρωτική επιτυχία! Και τώρα ήρθε η πολυπόθητη στιγμή. Η στιγμή που ονειρευόμουν από την προηγούμενη Τρίτη στον δρόμο για Αθηνα. Ώρα για λίγη καλή ξεκούραση μέ παπλωματάκι και μπιτζαμίνια. Ενεργοποίηση του sleep mode... *γυναικείο γλυκούλι υπόκωφο ροχαλητό*

(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!
