What do I do in a day?

I wake up somewhere between 6 am and 8 am, depending on how much I have to do. This particular day I woke up at about 7:30. I had a quick breakfast before turning on some music and getting ready for a work experience day. I always start my day with listening to Angels and Airwaves, both because their music is really relaxing and because Tom Delonge is one of my favorite singers.

While I listen to that, I do my hair, I cleanse my face, I put on some make up if I need to, to make sure I look somewhat presentable. Most of the time I just fill in my brows, put on a lipstick and go out like that. I’ve also found that if i ‘blot’ my t-zone with setting powder when I do no foundation days, I get less oily overall.

After getting ready I drive off to my schedules for the day, and arrive home many hours later, tired and eating dinner before retiring to my room to read. I love snacking on satsumas while reading.. And listening to music, or ASMR. After reading for a little bit, I usually do chores like cleaning, doing laundry, and then having a shower before returning to my favorite reading chair.

I really love having scented candles, currently I have one smelling like “clean cotton” and one smelling like “firewood”. I alternate between “firewood” and “mahogany”. I also love anything sandalwood, or just woodsy scents in general. (The framed poster in the background is a diagram of the moon with a lot of facts and whatnot)

So that’s usually what I do in a day. Now and then the reading is traded for video games, or more cleaning.. It really depends on my mood and how tired I am from my schedules. Exciting, huh? Not really, but I enjoy my own company and I enjoy reading the most.

What do you do in a day?

I did one of these kind of posts for my birthday, 26 things I learned in 26 years, but I thought I could add a few new, and pick out some that I did learn this year. Have you learned any lessons this year or has it gone by pretty smoothly? 

  1. Phones are rarely ever water proof, no matter how much the company or salesman claims for it to be. They could be water resistant, sure, but not water proof.
  2. If you stop thinking of blogging as a hobby, it will quickly become a chore. You will get tired of it and you will lose motivation. Try to keep it fun.
  3. Always keep a copy of a document you have signed. You never know what they will do with it and if anything is altered without your permission, you still have the original document.
  4. It’ okay to not know what you want to do with your life, it’s okay to try new things and it’s okay to go back to school if you want. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. It’s your life and you decide what you want to do with it, if you ever figure it out, of course.
  5. If you have the money and time for travel, do it! You would probably regret not going more than you would regret going. Just get yourself out there, it’s a big world that we have to explore.
  6. Nothing lasts forever and it is definitely best to try to enjoy what you have while you can, whether its physical possessions or people in your life. You never know when you would lose anything.
  7. It is possible to overcome anxiety. I have felt lately that my anxiety has gotten less severe. I’m able to be in social situations without feeling sick to my stomach and I don’t get panic attacks too often. It feels really relieving and I’m so happy that my life is slowly becoming more “normal”.

Today is a rather relaxed day, so I opted for an over sized sweater dress, black leggings and my fluffy, light pink indoor slippers. Well, I don’t know if they’re really called slippers but that was the only word google translate could give me. In Norwegian they are called “Tøfler”, they’re just cozy, soft indoor footwear. They look like knitted Uggs and I love them, no matter how ugly they can look, they’re really comfortable to wear. Incidentally, everything I’m wearing is from H&M, and I don’t know if they sell any of it any more because I’ve had them all for years. What are you wearing today?

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  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.

Feeling a bit spoiled

July 11, 2017 — 11 Comments

I’ve had my phone for over two years now and it was malfunctioning and the home button stopped working. I always treat my phones really well so I have no idea why this one was having such a bad time. I didn’t want to spend money on a new phone just yet, but my father decided that I couldn’t keep using a phone that wasn’t at all reliable so he offered to buy me a new one.

I don’t particularly enjoy it when people spend so much money on something for me but as my phone was standing on its last leg, I couldn’t really decline. I went online, found the cheapest phone that I could, a HTC Desire 650, which honestly isn’t a bad phone at all and ordered it. I picked it up on Monday and I’m so happy with it! I was hoping it would be a bit smaller than the one I had but to my surprise it was bigger. I have very small hands so I struggle with holding phones with one hand but this one has ridges worked into it’s back cover so it was much easier to hold.

I would include a picture of it that I could have taken on my own, but my other phone is dead so that wasn’t really possible. I just wish I could have accessed everything I had on it to transfer it to my new phone, but it’s okay, it was just a bunch of pictures of my cats. I’m sure I’ll fill it up with new pictures in no time anyways, they’re so cute and I love taking pictures of them whenever I can so that I can treasure the memories later.

I never really thought I would stray from Samsung, but being biased to just one brand isn’t really the most economically great choice you could make. I know my brother only uses Apple products, and he spends way too much money on things that he doesn’t really need, just because it’s Apple. I guess I shouldn’t judge him but he isn’t really known to think about what he spends his money on.

Ah well, I’m really grateful to have a new phone, one with an even better camera, surprisingly! Maybe my blog pictures will look even cooler, and now I can use my phone to check comments and new posts more often too since I have a phone that actually works. So happy!

Have you gotten yourself  something or received anything cool from others lately?
