I know it isn’t November…but today we are talking about thankfulness. I mean to be honest, it doesn’t really matter that Thanksgiving is like 7 months away, because thankfulness is something we can participate in any day of the year (regardless of whether there is turkey present.)
It’s April already and I’m betting that some of you have let your ambitious 2017 health and fitness goals slide a little. But that’s okay because I totally have as well. However, I mentioned on Instagram that I just did something a little crazy and signed myself up to run a quarter marathon (sounds better than a 10k right?) So eep I gotta get training ASAP so I don’t die come race day which is fast approaching!
This has been one of those crazy weeks. So I think my lecturers got together and decided to test my sanity by scheduling all of my tests, assignments and lab reports on the same week. I bet they all sat there rubbing their hands together and cackling with evil laughs…I can just see it. For real tho, why do lecturers always do that? You just get on top of one thing and another gets flung your way.
I recently read the book ‘The Five love languages’ and it kinda blew my mind. I know I’m like 20 years late and whatever, but I’m gonna rave about it anyway. The copy I have actually belonged to my Gran and it has got her handwriting all scribbled throughout it which I just love (those are the best kind of books, right?) So I thought today I’d talk about my love language and what I have learnt about love in general…ooh la la!
I have written this intro like five times and each time it sounded weird and clompy so you will just have to bear with me through this one. I don’t know what you were like as a child, but I was a total princess. I was always decked out in a tutu and tiara and adorned with buckets of (plastic) jewels. I was the definition of a girly girl and well…nothing has changed. But I have learnt that it takes more than just wearing a tiara to be a princess and more than a string of pearls to be a lady.
This post is combining two things I am really passionate about: coffee (duh) and personality tests. I will admit that I am the biggest sucker for Buzzfeed quizzes. It’s the best procrastination and fun ever. Heck yes I want to know if I’m the peanut butter or the jelly in my friendships. Please tell me when I am going to get married by my choice in pizza toppings. Please guess my Hogwarts house by the colour of socks I am wearing (it’s Hufflepuff btw.) See, what fun.
What do you think officially makes you an adult? Is it when you move out of home for the first time? Or when you buy a
car cat? Or when you start watching the news because you actually want to know what is happening in the world? Whatever it is, the process happens so gradually it kind of catches you off guard. One minute you are happily playing make believe with your friends and the next you are flung into the real world and expected to make all these huge decisions about the future.
I am genuinely ecstatic that it is the weekend. I don’t know if I have ever been so glad to see the end of a week. Last week I was cruising along thinking that my classes weren’t too bad and everything was just peachy. This week I have been running around like a headless chicken (isn’t that just the best mental picture?) So I’ve just been trying to keep my head above water and not get overwhelmed by my to-do list. Fortunately, the weekend is here and I shall be taking time to paint my nails, read a book and bake some cookies.
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.
So you know how it is March already? (How though?!) And you know how in January we made all those fanciful goals and aspirations? Yeah, how is that going for you? Because I’ll be honest, I think I may have slipped back into some of my easy routines instead of sticking to those New Year’s resolutions.
