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?

This post is mostly meant to be humorous, especially the cons, so just take it with a grain of salt. This is not set in stone, not everyone  have the same experiences, and if you have something that you feel would fit in with this, feel free to let me know in the comments.

Pros:

  • The first point should be that blogging is really easy! All you have to do is register on a blogging platform, write down a post, publish it and voila! You’re a blogger now, welcome to our little world. Blogging can be done by pretty much anyone, you just have to at least somewhat enjoy writing content.
  • You get to meet some really lovely people in the blog community! I feel like some of the people I have met on here are more reliable that people I know outside of the internet. This was truly shown when I returned from my blogging break and everything was still the same way as before I left.
  • You always feel inspired from reading other bloggers amazing posts! There is an abundance of great posts from other people out there just waiting to be discovered by you.
  • You have a medium where you know you will be heard. There will always be someone reading your post, sometimes you get comments in return and it really helps knowing that you have someone to vent to whenever you need it.
  • You can write about pretty much everything. There is a niche for just about anything in the world, so restricting yourself to something you think will be popular shouldn’t be the way to go about it. Write about what you love and you will find an audience regardless.
  • You get to improve your writing and your photography skills. With every word you write and every picture you take you will constantly improve! Unless you are one of those rare cases, one that is haunted by failure.
  • You can find reviews and recommendations all on one website! Instead of having to go on multiple websites to find what you want to see reviews for, you can just search for reviews that has been posted by the community.
  • You can design your blog almost exactly how you want it to be! This isn’t necessarily a free option, but the paid services aren’t that expensive if you break it down to see how much it would be in monthly payments.
  • Blogging can be a good source of extra income. If your blog does well, or if you purchase a premium plan, you get access to WordAds which can garner revenue.

 

Cons:

  • You always see new and cool products that you just have to purchase. This is quite an expensive habit and I really wish I wasn’t so easily affected.
  • You sometimes feel envious of how well others write, or how beautiful their pictures are while you struggle to reach the same kind of quality yourself. It is always possible to improve though.
  • You might spend a bit too much time online compared to what you expected since there’s so many great blogs to read.
  • Sometimes it can be hard to get visits too your blog, a lot of people advice to post every day, something that can be difficult for a lot of people, especially those who prefer quality over quantity. But if you can combine both then you should be good.
  • It can be a bit disheartening to see a newer blog gain followers faster than you do. I know a few people who has stopped blogging because of this and it’s quite saddening.

  1. How good melons taste! I always try to keep my fridge stocked with various types of melons, preferably watermelon and a variety called Piel de Sapo, they’re even better when they’re chilled! I love that watermelons helps with keeping you staying hydrated too so it’s really a win-win situation to snack on them in the summer heat.
  2. Coconut scented everything! Tropical scents and summer goes together like… well.. I couldn’t think of a good comparison, but a coconut-y tropical scent is like peak summer for me. I have a tropical scented sunscreen and I love that it makes me smell so good instead of that standard sunscreen scent.
  3. A cool breeze on a hot day. Nothing feels better than a cool breeze when you’re feeling really hot. Finally getting a break from the heat when the shade just isn’t enough feels amazing.
  4. Bonfires on the beach. It’s not allowed to have any bonfires in the woods here during the summer so resorting to having it on the beach is a great alternative, honestly. Just sitting there in our beach chairs, having marshmallows, hotdogs, cold beers and whatnot, it’s amazing.
  5. Being able to stay outside overnight without freezing. During autumn and winter, it’s not really possible to stay out during the night at all, it gets way too cold. I love being outside and looking up at the sky, mostly because I live in the countryside and we have little to none light pollution so I get to see a lot of stars.

What are your favorite things about summer?

I stumbled upon this list of summer themed “Would you rather?” questions and thought I could share them here! I’m going to tag a few people at the end of this, but anyone who wants to do this can absolutely do so! If you want to share your post for it, feel free to leave a link in the comments below. You can find the original list here if you want to copy it directly from the source, or alternatively at the bottom of this post.

Now, would you rather . . . 

  1. live in a tree house or a castle? I would totally live in a castle! I have always been fond of medieval history and architecture, and being able to live in an actual castle would be awesome! Plus, there are listings for castles in Europe that can be cheaper than apartments in large cities around the world.
  2. be able to sing beautifully or dance beautifully? As much as I love singing, I think I would actually choose dancing for this one! I always love watching people dance because they’re both elegant and insanely cool looking at the same time. I always find it funny how ballerinas can be so graceful when they dance, and when they’re just doing normal things they can be super clumsy like the rest of us.
  3. ride a horse or a camel? I can’t handle heat that well, and camels are usually used in very warm places, so for this I think I would choose to ride a horse since I could use it back home where it’s not as warm.
  4. know a fairy or a unicorn? I really want to say a unicorn, but honestly, knowing a fairy would be really cool. Sure, a unicorn could probably make me live forever, but I’m not really sure if I would want that. Life is long enough for me as it is, honestly.
  5. have a backyard that was a huge bounce house or a huge ball pit? Have you heard horror stories about people suffocating to death in ball pits? I have, so I would have to choose a bounce house/bouncy castle.
  6. travel or stay home? This would entirely depend on my mood! A lot of the time I would love to travel, but sometimes I would just want to stay at home and enjoy what I have here. I have been travelling for most of the past summers but this year I will stay at home.
  7. be able to fly or be able to breathe under water? I would choose to breathe under water! Definitely minimizing my risk of ever drowning, plus it would be cool to be able to go snorkeling without a snorkel.. Or just explore the ocean in general. Now the question is; will this give me gills?
  8. know where you’re going or have it be a surprise? I would definitely like to know! I have a lot of allergies and other medical needs I need to tend to and prepare for so spontaneous trips are not for me.
  9. be on a boat or on an airplane? I would rather be on an airplane! I get sea sick or have motion sickness too easily. Luckily it never triggers when I’m on an airplane during the turbulence.
  10. be able to see in the dark or be able to never get tired? I can’t even remember what it was like to never feel tired, it’s like a constant state now! But does this mean you never sleep? I mean, if i can still keep a regular sleep schedule without feeling dead tired during the day then sure! If not then I would rather see in the dark.
  11. go on a vacation to the beach or to the mountains? I would love to go to the mountains! I visited the mountains in Scotland some years ago and I loved it a whole lot! Nature up there is so beautiful and I would love to experience it again. We stayed over new years so I got to experience an authentic gaelic new years celebration too.
  12. have picnics in the forest or in the park? I feel like picnics are mostly for the park, while having an outdoor barbecue or bonfire night would be more of a forest activity where I live.
  13. swim in the ocean or swim in a pool? I would rather swim in the ocean! I’m not very fond of the chlorine used in swimming pools so I would rather swim in salt water!
  14. be a dolphin or a cheetah? Being able to run really fast would be cool! It would also be cool to be agile in water, but the risk of getting eaten by an orca terrifies me. I have a lot of irrational fears, I guess you can tell!
  15. be able to make people laugh or be able to make people trust you? I want to pick both for this! However, ultimately it would be better for people to trust me than just to find me funny.
  16. be surprised by a present or be able to pick what you get? I don’t mind surprises as long as it’s not something I really shouldn’t open in the presence of others when at a party, for example.
  17. eat popsicles or watermelon? I would rather eat a slightly chilled watermelon! It’s my favorite snack in the summer and it always makes me stay extra hydrated in the summer heat. If you eat something really cold your body usually responds by trying to heat you up again anyways.
  18. go camping or stay in a hotel? This depends on where and when! For longer journeys I would prefer a hotel, but for like a weekend I would prefer to go camping!
  19. do art or read? I would rather read. I’m not good at art even though I majored in Interior design and did a lot of art projects during the first two years. I guess my passion is there but I’m lacking the physical skill.
  20. experience an epic waterslide or an epic zip line? I would choose a water slide! I’m scared of heights so a zip line would probably terrify me!

Here are the questions so you can copy them! 

  1. live in a tree house or a castle?
  2. be able to sing beautifully or dance beautifully?
  3. ride a horse or a camel?
  4. know a fairy or a unicorn?
  5. have a backyard that was a huge bounce house or a huge ball pit?
  6. travel or stay home?
  7. be able to fly or be able to breathe under water?
  8. know where you’re going or have it be a surprise?
  9. be on a boat or on an airplane?
  10. be able to see in the dark or be able to never get tired?
  11. go on a vacation to the beach or to the mountains?
  12. have picnics in the forest or in the park?
  13. swim in the ocean or swim in a pool?
  14. be a dolphin or a cheetah?
  15. be able to make people laugh or be able to make people trust you?
  16. be surprised by a present or be able to pick what you get?
  17. eat popsicles or watermelon?
  18. go camping or stay in a hotel?
  19. do art or read?
  20. experience an epic waterslide or an epic zip line?

I will tag and challenge these lovely people to complete this list of their own:

  1. Michala
  2. Rei
  3. Lisa
  4. Karalee
  5. Hitherdither
  6. Halsdoll
  7. Alifya
  8. Simon (to get some gender diversity in here 😉 )
  9. Danniijane (A beautiful thing)
