What’s Up (part 1) – No Motivation & Sleep deprivation

Life

Basically just what’s going on in my life at the moment: How I’ve been dealing with school (IB Y1), working out, early birthday surprises, recklessly cutting my own hair (again!) and some random recent pictures.


Currently: Listening to Saved by Khalid, working on this blog post while I should be writing the essay I have due tomorrow and haven’t started :~)

Okay so first of all, I can’t believe that January is already over and it’s already February! I feel like from this point on the school year just goes by so quickly… At least I hope so, my motivation is non existent right now.

It was Valentines day a few days ago and as usual, I was as single as ever hahahah, it’s fine though, even if I did have a date, I probably wouldn’t even have the time to go out, just felt like any other day to be honest… I did get some surprise chocolate though hehe, like I already mentioned I had this huge essay for English Lit due that my teacher assigned a week earlier along with two other big projects, I literally started writing it at 11 pm the night before it was due. YAY. It actually turned out pretty good in the end though – goes to show that it doesn’t matter when you start as long as you get it done hahahah. Just kidding, sleep, being stress free and ahead of the game feels so much better. I go through phases where I’m just killing it with my organization and responsibilities, but then there’s weeks like last week where I just ate like shit and got nothing done :’). I feel like this is something that all IB students understand. I also just finished my midterms and ohhh god, they were so hard. I legit survived on redbull and coffee.. I needed like a week to recover and catch up from sleep because of them hahah, So glad they’re over.

Sweden Video

Travel

Hey guys! So as I’ve said previously, I got back from Sweden, visiting one of my best friends around two weeks ago, while I was there I obviously took tons of pictures and even made a video. Before I post all of the pictures I took I’m going to show this first. Enjoy!

I had a truly amazing time and I think you can see that in these five minutes. It was seriously so hard to compress all of the footage I had and even more so to try and cram all of the memories we made into just a little video, either way I’m pretty proud of it and am missing summer break like crazy already.

Italy 2: Venice

Travel

Words cannot express how beautiful this city is. That sounds so cheesy and exaggerated but it’s true. Venice looks like it was taken straight out of a picture book or painting and is just so classic, unique and old and modern at the same time… The pictures are actually pretty reflective of all of this, so I’ll let you see for your self. Nothing is quite like witnessing it irl though so even these pictures (even though I’m quite proud of them lol) don’t quite do the city justice.
