Structured Planning

Leaving blog updates to the last minute has become a common theme on here, and not intentionally. Over the next couple of days, I’ll be trying to schedule some posts in advance. I’ve got some stuff I need to plan, family members to see soon and I can’t wait for that.

There’s a lot to be grateful for, honestly. Sunshine has finally calmed down, which is a relief. Got a lot to do tomorrow, there’s a whole list of things.

I’m both tired and full of energy, it’s strange. Anyway, I should leave it at that before the clock strikes midnight. Have a great evening!

Hoping For A Productive Weekend

Despite thinking I might not have the energy to write anything tonight, I’m still here managing to, after all.

This current weather is a lot, I must say. It’s not often I have to have my windows open during the evening, but here we are.

Getting more sleep is great, yet I still feel so tired. Hopefully, this gets better over time.

I do plan on writing more and being more present on the blog. Although at the moment, I’m trying not to stress myself further.

Tomorrow is Friday, which means the weekend is near. Hoping you all have a great one and I’ll see you on the next post. Take care!

Too Much Sunshine

As much as I have missed a bit of sun and fine weather, the current heatwave during the daytime can be a lot. Found it quite difficult to sleep as well, typical me.

Hopefully, it cools down a bit so I can get my energy levels in order, because truthfully, I’ve been more tired than anything else in recent days.

Looking forward to the weekend too, can’t wait. Not been writing much because it’s so warm, although once the weather settles into more manageable temperatures, I’ll perhaps feel inspired once more.

Hope you all have a wonderful evening, take care!

Gloomy Wednesday

Despite the unfortunate weather, and the mixed emotions of the day, it wasn’t all too unbearable. It’s safe to say that I’ll be asleep sooner rather than later.

Already mid-week again, I don’t necessarily mind it because I get to do Math and take my mind off things (Who even am I anymore? haha)

It’s been a constant mix of apathy and motivation for me today.

Had the motivation to get things done, yet at the same time, there were elements of apathetic moments throughout the day as well.

On the bright side, my new exercise bike has been a great addition to the house. It makes me want to spend more time in the living room for once.

All the other stuff aside, I just wanted to say that it’s important to look after yourself. That’s something I’ve tried to keep a priority, regardless of how my day is going to be.

Not the most interesting post I’ve ever made on this blog, but perhaps tomorrow will inspire me further? Until then, have a great Wednesday.

Clear Skies And Sunshine

Sunny weather can have such a positive impact on your mood and it’s brilliant. The last couple of days, I’ve never felt better.

Easter is around the corner too, which I’m looking forward to as well.

I’m hoping to focus on the new book project a lot in these next few weeks or so. Connecting with my friends again would be cool, social interaction of any kind is good for the soul. Well, depending on the situation, I suppose.

Cherish your loved ones, live in the moment, be kind to yourself.

That’s what I’d tell my younger self: be brave.

Late Additions

I honestly feel like I’m going to fall asleep soon, but before I even think of doing so, another blog post needs to be uploaded. Focusing on my writing should be more of a priority than it is.

Finally got my heating/hot water issue sorted earlier today, and I’m really thankful because the weather is incredibly cold tonight.

We’ll see if sleep is on the horizon, or whether insomnia will keep me company until the late hours.

I always say I’ll rest early, then I do the exact opposite. On a positive note, I did get up at a reasonable time in the morning, so that was good yet exhausting by the end of the day.

Might have a browse through other blogs/websites to figure out my topics for the weekend onwards. Fingers crossed that my energy levels will be sufficient, as well as my concentration. I feel it’s been lacking recently.

Anyway, I’ll end it at that. Until tomorrow’s post.

Unforeseen Chaos

Started the day off pretty well, ended it with a malfunctioning boiler.

It’s honestly the last thing you need when the weather is as cold as it is in the UK.

Need to get an early start tomorrow, slightly anxious about it all, but I’m sure I’ll get through this.

Laying in bed, feeling thankful for my warm duvet.

Hope you’re all staying safe and well tonight.

Inspired Wednesday


Despite a late start to the day, I completed what I had to do, and that was good enough for me. The cold weather doesn’t really help either, especially in the last week.

I might have been born in a cold place, but I’m not too fond of it.

For the first years of my life, I was born and raised in Scandinavia (Northern Sweden to be exact)

Anyway, I’ve always been proud of my background, and it’s an important part of my identity, who I am. As well as the experiences that have shaped me into the current version of myself.

I think I’m beginning to ramble now, ever so slightly.

Think it’s time to sleep soon, since I stayed awake a bit too late the previous night. Stay safe and stay warm this evening.

Wednesday Thoughts



Halfway through the week and it’s mad how fast time seems to pass by.


Looking forward to a good night’s sleep, after I get some minor study done.
It’s been quite a bittersweet day, but all you can do is just keep certain people in your thoughts and hope they’re doing well.

I could go into further detail, but let’s keep it vague and not to mention, private. On a positive note, a sibling of mine has a birthday tomorrow so that’s something to quietly celebrate at home.

January went by quick, am I right? Lockdown and all the restrictions make most days seem identical, but all in all, as long as you’re staying safe and keeping yourselves protected, that’s the main thing at the moment.

Weather seems to be less cold today, which is nice. It’s dark outside by the time it’s 5pm, sometimes earlier than that. Hopefully, we get a bit of sunshine soon.

I’ll try and write tomorrow’s post a bit earlier in the day, if possible.

As always, stay safe and take care of yourself and others.

Snow Days In January




The weather is really cold these days, and now there’s snow.

January has been such a weird month, like many of the previous ones in the last year or so. As much as I don’t mind cold days or nights, it still manages to get on my last nerve sometimes.

It can also make it difficult to get out of bed in the mornings too, having to wear many layers around the house is interesting, I do keep the heating on a lot, but with that being so expensive, as it can be for many people, I try and keep it on mainly at night.

So glad I have my fleece blanket, as well as my normal duvet. I am thinking of getting more winter type bedding and things like that, but I’m really prioritizing other bills and expenses.

Got a lot of math study to catch up on, which I’ll probably do some of it tomorrow morning. I am determined to wake up early, plus I enjoy cleaning the house. It’s very therapeutic, comforting and I count it as exercise, depending on the household chores I do over the course of the day.

Another thing I also love beyond words is cooking. I could spend hours upon hours making dishes from scratch, it’s something I hope to do more of as well, sometimes there’s not a lot of time and you just want something quick and simple, that’s pretty great too.

Anyway, long story short, I’m off to bed soon. Take care and stay safe!
