So, today is my 26th birthday! Time flies by so fast, it feels like I turned 18 just yesterday. I have seen many posts like these and I think they are all so interesting, so I wanted to try to do one myself! Here we go;

  1. No matter what happens, time will keep moving so it’s better to look ahead than get hung up on the past.
  2. The tiny pocket in our jeans was made for pocket watches.
  3. There’s no real reason as to why the alphabet is in the order it is.
  4. Cats do in fact not have nine lives, though I believed that for many years.
  5. You can never be prepared for a break up, even if it is your decision.
  6. You can rarely trust anyone but yourself.
  7. If you are slightly colorblind when it comes to blue and yellow, playing guitar hero is really difficult.
  8. You will only be as old as you feel.
  9. It’s not really that important to have a relationship, you can do just as fine on your own.
  10. Travel whenever you can, it’s better to buy experiences.
  11. Whatever you do to others, they will do to you, whether it’s being nice or nasty.
  12. Always keep copies of important documents.
  13. Keep your receipts, you never know when you will need them or if something will need to be brought back.
  14. Never keep your phone in loose pockets.
  15. Lactic acid has nothing to do with dairy.
  16. If you speak a second language enough, you’ll slowly lose your knowledge of your first language.
  17. Reading books truly helps your writing.
  18. Our phones are advanced enough to take great photos, there isn’t always a need for investing in cameras.
  19. Succulents can be both easy and difficult to care for depending on if they have the same watering schedules.
  20. Cats make everything so dusty.
  21. Never cut contact with all of your peers just because you enter a relationship. If it ends, you have no one.
  22. Don’t let hate or rumors get to you, you know the truth.
  23. It’s okay to be negative, or to feel down. We all experience emotions, good or bad.
  24. It’s okay to start over, with school, with work, with anything.
  25. You’ll never truly know what you want to do with your life.
  26. Never take anything for granted.

That was the first twenty six things that came to mind! Do you have anything you have learned over the years that you have lived?

August goals

August 11, 2017 — 26 Comments

august

Find a new job. Hopefully one where I can accommodate my injuries, and one where I actually feel comfortable working at. I have had a lot of bad work experiences through the years so I feel like it should be my time soon to have a job that I enjoy. I also hate being unemployed, having nothing really useful to do, it’s slowly but surely driving me crazy.

Finish reading what is on my ‘currently reading’ list on Goodreads. I have five books there now that I need to finish, it’s a bad habit of mine to just start reading a lot of books and never finishing them. Here’s my current list:

  • Hannibal by Mirko Jelusich
  • The Calling by David Gaider
  • Daughter of the Drow by Elaine Cunningham
  • Stars above by Marissa Meyer
  • American Gods by Neil Gaiman

Make more health-conscious choices. I need to stop saying yes to soda, need to stop buying snacks. Need to stop buying candy. I need to drink more water, more tea and less sugary stuff. I need to make more food from scratch instead of settling for processed or ready made meals.

Work out at least every other day. I’ve been good at working out but sometimes I feel like I’m too tired, even though I know I should push myself through it. I’ve at least been working out around 3 times a week, but it needs to be more. With every other day it would be about 4 times a week, which is better than just three.

Spend as little as possible to preserve what money I have in my savings account. Now that I’m unemployed and don’t have a steady income, I really need to save as much as I can to avoid running out of money. It is difficult when you have bills to pay and food to buy, and you can’t make any unnecessary purchases. There’s so much that I want to buy that I cant, and it sucks.

What are your goals for August?

I have never been the biggest fan of jewelry..

I was very active when I was younger so I hated wearing necklaces, I never got my ears pierced, I didn’t like wearing rings because I was always in the woods or out in the fields and I would just lose them. My love for jewelry has certainly only been present for the past few years and I have purchased a few treasured pieces that I just love wearing. I don’t wear jewelry every single day but I do love to accessorize whenever I’m going out, no matter what occasion it is for. I don’t care much for handbags, sunglasses, shawls, scarves or anything else so jewelry is the way to go for me.

When it comes to buying jewelry, I rarely spend a lot, I know I’m either going to break it or lose it either way so I try to buy as cheap as possible. I don’t enjoy mass produced either, so I mostly purchase handmade jewelry off of Etsy. It makes me feel better that I can directly support whoever created it. There’s nothing wrong with purchasing jewelry from other stores or people, I just do what I think is right. Anyways, here we go:

DSC_0001

Amethyst cluster choker (probably not a real crystal, it is really heavy though) and a faceted glass choker, both with velvet bands. These two are my favorites and I love wearing them. Chokers do make me feel slightly claustrophobic at times but they’re both so pretty that it doesn’t really matter. Both are from sellers on Etsy.

DSC_0005

A metal dream catcher necklace. I love wearing this, but I don’t wear it as often as I probably should. It has a tendency of turning around and that can be a tiny bit annoying when you have to turn it back again and again. I don’t really remember where I purchased this.

DSC_0008

A chunk of tinted glass (they advertised it as some kind of quartz but it’s just glass) and a crescent moon, both from wish! I’ve been really into moon jewelry lately, been browsing Etsy for new pieces but haven’t found any that I wouldn’t regret purchasing.

DSC_0013

A 9 piece ring set, purchased from wish for like a dollar! These are so cute and I love wearing all nine of them at the same time. They are of varying sizes so that you can have more than one on a finger (like this). I really wish my fingers were more slender and longer so that I could fit even more of them on.

And lastly I have a gold plated ring that I inherited from my grandmother when she passed away in December, and a blue faceted glass ring, a replica from the anime series Black Butler. Blue is one of my absolute favorite colors so I couldn’t resist purchasing it.

So that was my collection, for now! I might purchase some more in the future, because I’m bound to either lose or destroy some of these eventually. (Hopefully not though because I love them all).

Do you have any favorite jewelry?

In June my blog hit 400 followers, and now it is already at 500! Things are happening so fast and I don’t even understand why. I keep seeing blogs reaching multiple milestones every month and I don’t understand how they are able to keep up with it. I always try to visit every blog in my reader feed to leave comments for them, and to reply to every comment I receive on my own blog so a somewhat slow growth has been something I am very comfortable with.

I’m very grateful though, I have gotten to know more and more wonderful people and I wouldn’t want to trade it for the world. It’s kinda crazy to think that in a year, my blog following has grown to be ten times as big. What did I ever do to make that happen? All I do is to share my thoughts and they’re not that great! πŸ™‚

Anyways, thank you so much for sticking with me and I look forward to getting to know even more of you in the future. β™₯

I have always been fascinated by the thought of keeping a dream diary, and I have had multiple of them over the years. I threw them all out last year because they contained a lot of sensitive information and bad memories of a person I didn’t want to have in my life so it felt better to just get rid of them. I went for about six months without a dream diary to give it a break, then I decided to purchase a new note book in May of this year. It was such a relief to have a place to write down my dreams again and it felt like a weight had been lifted from my shoulders.

Sometimes I have dreams that I don’t understand, sometimes my dreams are terrifying and sometimes I just can’t remember what happened in them no matter how hard I try to recall them. They say that you get better at remembering your dreams over the years if you write them down but I’m not sure if that has been the case for me. Nor have I ever been able to control my dreams and they often turn for the worse, making me wake up feeling panicked or being drenched in sweat. I’m not sure why I have so many bad dreams but there is probably some scientific explanation behind it.

The note book I’m using now I purchased off of Wish for about a dollar, and I think it’s really pretty. It uses a non bleached paper and I find Β it to be really comfortable to write on. On the inside of the cover I have written a quote from a song performed by Neon Hitch, a song called neighborhood. It seemed really fitting since I have bad dreams a lot so my mind would most likely be a bad neighborhood anyways. I use a mix of my Staedtler Triplus Fineliner pens and some gel glitter pens to write in it with, not really being too picky about how it ends up looking. I just want it to be colorful and sparkly to make it seem more joyful than it is.

I find that writing down my dreams sometimes can help me work through issues that I have and it gives me a place to vent without having to share my burden with other people. I was never one to seek out others to talk with them because I didn’t want my problems to become theirs so writing was my therapy.

Have you ever had a dream diary? Is it something you have considered to have? Also, do you ever remember your dreams when you wake up? Sometimes I suddenly remember details towards the end of the day and it’s so weird. I’m always a bit skeptical, thinking that I’m just fabricating memories, but I can never be sure.
