13 MORE small adulting wins you should be celebrating

Hey friends!

You know what I think? I think we don’t give ourselves enough credit for all the little things we accomplish each day. I think we tend to be a little too hard on ourselves. Sure we might not have gone for a run (again) or maybe we didn’t get around to taking out the trash but hey, we got out of bed and gave it our best and I think that’s a win in and of itself.

The week in review

Hey friends!

Ugh I’m feeling a little worse for wear today. I will talk more about the reason why later on but basically I had very little sleep last night and I am feeling it today. You don’t realize how important sleep is until you are walking around like a dangerously caffeinated zombie on the verge of chomping someone’s head off. Some people are really good at surviving on minimal sleep, but I am not one of them (how else would I stay so young and vibrant 😉 ) So if you need me I’ll be napping.

My three most embarrassing moments

Hi friends!

I’ve got a bad case of the Wednesday blues. You know when you wake up thinking it is Friday but then realize it is only Wednesday and it feels like your entire life is a lie and you don’t even know who you are anymore? Hands up if you are feeling those Wednesday blues too. Yeah I see ya, and you know what I think…I think we all need a little cheering up. And what better way to cheer you up than to have a laugh about some of my most embarrassing moments in my life thus far.

The week in review

Hey friends!

How are we all? This has felt like the longest week ever for me. All the labs and lab reports have got me in a bit of a gloomy mood. This semester just needs to be over so I can focus on more important things like watching The Bachelor (my guilty pleasure) and painting my nails with enough coats that they don’t chip in two seconds. But anyway, for now I’ll just be here sighing and pouring myself another cup of coffee.

Behind the scenes of that Instagram photo #4

Hey friends!

Welcome to a new week. Did you have a good weekend? I feel extra relaxed because I went back home to visit my parents this weekend and took Monday off. Can three day weekends always be a thing please and thank you! I took my Mum to the park on Sunday and made her be my photographer so I could frolick in the autumn leaves. It was really fun (for me anyway.) Mum had this uncanny knack for capturing me with my eyes closed though. This got me thinking, it’s about time I shared a little behind the scenes action with you all again…so here we are!

8 TV shows that have ruined real life for me

Hey friends!

My name is Megan and I have a problem…I get waaaay too invested in TV shows. It starts off all innocent, just a little entertainment to unwind or have a laugh and before I know it I am in too deep. I start to think the characters are my real friends. I start to dream of alternative endings. I can’t help watching every single episode and then I feel lost once the show ends.

13 small adulting wins you should be celebrating

Hey friends!

So I’m currently sitting in the library staring out the window and sulking a little cause it is my first day back at uni and I am NOT happy about it. I feel like study is up there with wearing those shoes that gave me blisters again in my list of stuff I really don’t wanna do right now. Since I got back to Auckland we’ve already had a rat problem, a broken washing machine and a leaky freezer (although to be fair that was kinda my fault for leaving the door open oops.) And if you are anything like me, then you will feel the stress and strain of all these adult responsibilities.

9 cures for the Monday blues

Hey friends!

It’s the start of another week. Monday always has this way of creeping up on us. There we are, blissfully enjoying the weekend sun and…BAM…all of a sudden we are back, hunched over our desks as though the weekend was all just a dream. I don’t know how your Monday started, but I woke up with a blotchy, red face and eyelids so puffy they kept squeezing my eyes shut. Not a good look in case you were wondering.

Yes, apparently my body has decided to sabotage itself and for some reason has taken offence at the particular variety of pollen/dust/grass at home and is turning me into a puffy, grouchy mess. So yeah, on this particular day, I do understand your distaste for Mondays. I’m not too fond of them myself as of this moment.

Thank you notes to the world #2

Hey friends!

Since it’s Christmas and all, I suppose now is a time for being thankful (yes I have heard of Thanksgiving but I slept through that one so give me this please.) Have you noticed that everyone is a lot jollier than usual? I mean maybe it’s just the paint fumes (I’ve been doing all little DIY project) but I have definitely noticed a shift in the atmosphere around here. There is a certain festive cheer lingering in the air.

You know it is Christmas when…

Hello friends!

Oh would you look at that…it is the first of December. Ho Ho how about that. If you can’t tell, I am positively beaming because Christmas is my favourite holiday and I finally get to express my joy without being told off for celebrating too early. What is it about those grinches who keep trying to steal my Christmas joy?
