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!

tell-tale signs of inner change

cropped-tumblr_nj72my6zy31qawpa6o1_1280.jpg
I found solace in the dark, more than I found loneliness in the corners of my mind
and that has always comforted me to an extent; yet nostalgia walks this road too
my faithful companion as usual, never too far away if and when I need a hand.

Depression is like the weather; it comes and it goes, leaving you in a state
of never knowing when it will break you next or if it will at all?

Suffering can be almost non-visible to the naked eye, but not to your soul
because you’ll always have that anxious, gut-wrenching instinct. I believe so.

Hard to describe, this really is. Seven years and I’m still lost in translation
of what it really means, or what it does to your state of mind.

But I am certain, it changes everything about you.
