MONDAY

Today`s been a great day – I believe it`s because I went to this library to do some studying today, before the lecture, because of the sun and how the weather was nice today. We`re in the middle of October and Norway`s weather isn`t the most stable one, so it was quite nice to leave the house with a milkshake and my sunglasses. The sun mixes very well with the autumn colours, as well. I really like autumn, especially when it`s  not too cold.

I find that opportunity were handy, especially where I live. The library, which it takes about 10 minutes to get to by the train, is pretty much empty on Sundays and is therefore good to use then, if you`re me, haha. Speaking of libraries – I`m going to do a little book haul here, where I`ll show you my previous and current readings, along with some other books. Hope anyone of you is up for that! 🙂 IMG_1569

I hope you`re having a great day, wherever you are. Now I need to do a short assignment, have a lovely day. 

PS: When you publish a post without a title, you realise how not-so-focused your mind is, haha. Better late than never, though.

HOW TO BUILD SELF-CONFIDENCE?

This is a post I wrote a while ago. Hopefully this will help someone out there. 


1. You`ll never be able to please everyone in your life. I think even if you sometimes please a person, he or she will make fun of you, laugh at you and so on. I`ll never understand why, to be honest, but they say they do it out of jealousy. Once you understand you won`t ever be able to make everyone happy and satisfied by what you do, you`ll realise most opinions don`t matter. Also I wouldn`t recommend you to hang out with people who can`t be happy on your behalf. Just saying.

2. One of the things I started to do a little at Østmarka (the secondary school I went to) and even more when I joined high-school was to realise and understand that if someone in my life puts me down or makes me feel small, I owe it to myself to let them know that I expect something different from them. I deserve better. So, if someone doesn`t treat you the way you deserve, let them know it`s not okay at all. Don`t let them get away with it. D-O N-O-T.

3. Don`t automatically give in to the instant pay-off – it often means you`re selling yourself short. Treat yourself well and be your own very best friend! You might loose everyone else in your life but there`s a guarantee you`ll always have you and yourself.

4. Being confident doesn`t mean you do everything on your own – sometimes it also means asking someone else for help.

5. Do what you got to do, do what you believe is right, even if others mock or criticize you for it. Keep in mind you`ll never be able to please everyone anyways! 😉 What others think about you shouldn`t matter as long as you know what and who you are!

6. You need to know who you are. That`s your job, not anyone else`s. You have to work on yourself by yourself. If you don`t feel confident as a person, you don`t really feel like you have much of a personality that matters. If you don`t know who you are, you`re more likely to let others do the job. If you stand for nothing, you`ll fall for anything. If someone says you`re not worth anything, you might start to believe it. Also, believe in yourself. Believe that you matter and you are capable of doing great things. Personally I believe this one are among the most important ones.Y ou need to build yourself up that tall that if anyone tries to break you, they won`t succeed.

7. I`d like to believe body confidence is important too, but that`s not the most important part because your body isn`t your personality. What matters is your heart and your inside. Me saying you`re beautiful just the way you are and all that won`t help you, because it`s not like you`ve never been told that. IInstead, I`d like to tell you that you won`t be truly loved because of what you look like, but what you do. Their world won`t be your body, their world will be your love. And your love comes from your heart, not your body. You`ll be successful in your life not because of what you look like, but your confidence, you willing to create something. Your body is a piece of art, but it won`t do magic and art for you. You`ll have to do that magic and art by being you. Beauty isn`t about a pretty face, it`s about a pretty heart and a beautiful soul. Nothing can match a good heart.

AFTER A MONTH

Not too long ago I read this blog, on which the blogger wrote that she`d consider unfollowing a blog, if the blogger hasn`t posted in a while” and well… Here I am after a month.

I decided to take a month off and  maybe I should`ve let you known, but I thought I wanted to be gone “just like that” for once. I`ve been reading, drawing, watching my serials, applying for jobs, going out for runs, visiting my family and chilling at home. I`ve been enjoying books about Anne Frank – I bought this huge book about her at the Museum in Amsterdam. I thought I knew pretty much everything I can know about her, but I was wrong. To be honest, that makes me glad, as I get so happy every time I discover new things about her and her story!

As you perhaps can tell, there are no dramatical reasons behind my hiatus, I just wanted to not socialize with people online. Which means that I`ve been away from my Facebook account for about a month too and let`s just say it`s been great. Many of us spend too much time online, so it was about time I spent some time offline. I wasn`t completely off the internet, though. However, I recommend more people to go offline for some time. If you`re going on holidays soon, pick a hotel without WiFi or leave your electronical devices at home. I promise it`s going to do you good. Vacation is vacation, after all. 😉

Speaking of holidays… I need to tell you guys about my trip to Amsterdam! Ah, I`m so excited and hope you are too! Stay tuned! Hope everyone`s been having an amazing summer so far! I`m back now and hopefully you guys want to follow my journey. 

 

LONG TIME NO SEE

Hola amigos.

Yep, it`s me. I`ve been gone for…almost a month? When did that happen? I`m sorry for abandoning my blog for so long, but things have been going on and the past days I`ve been busy with exams. I`m on holiday from next week of, so I`ll be back on track from next week of. I must say the inspiration`s been gone for quite a while now and I have no idea what to write on here. So meanwhile – do let me know if there`s anything you`d like me to write about. I hope everyone`s fine and I wish everyone good luck with their tests/exams.

See you soon.

ONE YEAR

First of all.. I`ve blogged for one year now!! I realised that some days go, buuuut as you perhaps now, I haven`t blogged much lately. It`s hard to find the motivation to do so, when you know you have many other things to do. Being a student for the first time is hard. I`m the boss of my own days and I have to discipline myself. It`s going to take a while, but I`m sure I`ll figure it out soon. 🙂

Anyways, I can`t believe I`ve been blogging here for more than a year now?! I started this blog during my third and last year of high-school. It feels like that was a life ago. Whenever I see people who`re younger than me and “still” are in high-school, I feel like they`re living a completely different life than me. It`s still weird to not see Sara and Thea every day. I mean, I went to the same school for 3 years and no matter what – the fact is that I was used to showing up there pretty much every day. Now as I`ve joined university the routines are different, my days are different and I`m just not used to it.

I`m sorry for not blogging as much as I thought I would. I`m still getting used to my new chapter, so bear with me please. For now: Thanks a lot for hanging out with me for one year. Thanks for all the comments, the likes, thanks for the time anyone of you have spent on reading my posts. It really means a lot to me. I hope you still want to follow my journey and keep hanging out with me.. ♥tumblr_nihgkhddsq1r5bkvko1_500

SHOULD I KEEP THIS BLOG?

I started this blog as a project for my English class. I didn`t have to keep blogging after November/December, but I wanted to, so I kept writing. Now as this school year is over, I`m thinking whether I should keep this blog or not.

For me it`s been great, because I`ve received so many nice words and comments because of this blog. In the beginning it was weird for me to even have one person read my blog, so I`m extremely thankful to everyone who`ve read my blog, left a comment or sent a message to me because of something they`ve read here. The first weeks I posted about specific topics where I shared my opinions or thoughts. Now I do that, along with posts where I share a little of my life with you guys. I love blogging, as I love writing and I love to receive nice feedback. This blog has also given me some opportunities I never thought I`d get, so this place really means something to me.

But, I`m not sure if I should keep this blog or not. My mind`s confusing me. I want to, but I`m not sure. One of the reasons why I decided to keep this blog, was my readers. So, should I keep this blog? If so, what would you like me to write about? What do you want to see more of on this blog? 2014-03-18 11.00.32
