I don’t usually “recipe”; for pragmatic reasons and reasons of laziness and because cooking and baking for myself doesn’t require family measurements. Except for that one time I thought I had to make a full-on Thanksgiving meal from scratch including vegetarian and partially vegan options for my friends and call it Friendsgiving. ( In the end the company I had made up for the preparation and the hard work and the stress I tried to keep on slow-cook .) Anyways if I ever do indulge in some baked treats and choose to follow a recipe why not go the extra mile and make them healthy ?
I started biting my fingernails in first grade because my already chubby fingers had to be made more disturbing to look at. It’s not like I didn’t want to stop, I just couldn’t. The biting happened sort of unconsciously (that’s a no brainer) without me making the decision but I eventually was able to reduce the biting to a minimum and only ever disrupted my nails and their appearance when I got stressed. Truthfully though, with exams every other week it was sort of a constant state, even if not as bad as in the beginning. As you may know, or not know, I was an exchange student in the US for a year and well, things changed.
As a student I don’t count in actual years, I count in school years. Non the less I enjoy the fireworks and happy celebrations but it just doesn’t indicates the end of the year for me. Just because I don’t see it as the start/end and therefore a new beginning doesn’t mean we (students) don’t set goals for the upcoming year. For those saying every new year will be the best and healthiest year yet I can see 50% of you stuffing themselves with cookies and cake on the 1st of January. (No judging cookies equal life.) We just have to make sure we are in the other 50 per cent.
In order to evolve you have to try new things and be willing to learn. I learn french in school and should be some sort of fluent by now but well, I am not. This beautiful language which I’m definitely interested in just doesn’t come naturally to me and that’s why I got up and and wanted to change that in a way that is enjoyable. In a nutshell: I watched some movies in french! (more…)
I don’t like not having my phone around. I like to keep in touch with everyone and everything at all times and to be reached if necessary. As a blogger I am spending a lot of time with my laptop and my phone but I am not alone with the struggle of constant connection. Millions of people check their ‘instagram’ every second, email or argue over the phone (I don’t like arguing over the phone. The whole: storm out dramatically gets lost…) Anyways, it’s hard nowadays to not get sucked into the “world wide web”. What we don’t realize is is that we might just lose precious time in the real world.
since I’ve been traveling a lot lately, due winter holidays, I had some time figuring some stuff out for myself . And you are probably in front of your computers right now wondering when and if I ever post an outfit again, and I can assure you 2015 will be fashionable, but for today I want to talk about things that I’ve been inspired by or that I started valuing more. I don’t want to be a pseudo therapist and help you get over a horrible childhood memory or some kind of trauma because I am certainly not qualified for that but looking at things from different angles might be just what we all need every now and then.
