Wisdom Wednesday #35

Nap time …

… hated by kids, loved by adults. I had an exam today, which is why I only got about two hours of sleep last night. On days like this I like to get a little midday nap in to rest my body and be more attentive the rest of the day.

Important tip: always set an alarm for the end of the nap, so you don’t overdo it and are awake the whole night.


Mix-Up Monday #34

Monday night studying session …

… so much fun – or not? I missed an exam last semester, because I was sick, so I have to retake it on Wednesday. This is why I’m studying “Semantic Web” right now.

With some music and the prospect of all of this being over in about a day and a half the whole thing seems manageable.

Study on!

Fashion Friday #34

Cardigan season …

… is back on. I’ve said it before and I’ll probably say it again – I love a simple jeans and t-shirt outfit.

The time of the year is back, where the days get shorter, darker and colder, so a simple outfit needs one more thing – a cardigan! I have basic ones in black or blue, but the one I love the most has the following print:

I got the cardigan at H&M, however I bought it over a year ago. To complete the whole jeans, t-shirt and cardigan outfit I recommend a white knitted loop scarf to keep you warm.

Be determined …

… if you want to achieve your goals in life. You can’t always count on other people to be there for you. So set your own goals and believe in yourself.

Everybody has tough times, but the only one who can really get you out of those situations is yourself – doesn’t matter if this means working harder, knowing your limits or asking for help. Each one of those requires determination and realization.

Get it together and make it happen!

Mix-Up Monday #33

Seriously …

… already? The serious side of life begins again on Wednesday, when I start my last year of university. Only two more semesters until I’m done with my studies and I am going to be called Master of the Universe – or is it Master of Arts in Social Sciences? Tomato, tomato!

I worked all summer and am continuing to work while finishing my degree. So to not get too serious this week I will have a nice girl’s night out on Wednesday.

Tonight I’m already preparing everything I need for my first day back at university – pens, notebook, calendar and so on. The only thing I still have to get out of the depths of the basement is my motivation. But that’s another story for another day.

The best way to relax …

… is to build something with Lego. Ever since I got new Lego at Disneyland Paris (my mom gave away all of my Lego a couple of years ago, because “I’m not a kid anymore”) I spend my evenings building pandas, rockets, cars and so on. The reason it is so relaxing is because you can do it while listening to music, watching a movie or phoning a friend. Life is hard enough so another big plus – it takes me back to my childhood and brings back awesome memories.

Tonight I started a new project: I want to build all buildings from the Architecture series. But only after I have been to those places. The first one is the Big Ben, which I started a couple of minutes ago.

My dream building I want to own some day is the Tower Bridge, but it’s pretty expensive and will take quite some time to assemble, so I’m saving up for that one and work on smaller projects, like the Eiffel Tower and the White House until then.
