Quote of the day!

A few years ago I got the idea to start writing down different quotes that I heard (mainly from movies and tv series) and now I have a long, great list that I love to read over and over again, and the list just keeps growing. So I though why not start sharing some of them with you. Here is the first one…

“Happiness is catching”

 – Call the Midwife

This is one of my favorite quotes! It’s so straight forward, and yet so very important. So remember to try to be happy. I know that it can be hard some days, but trust me you can go a long way by showing just a simple smile. The best thing about smiling is that you often give a little part of your smile to someone else as well, because it’s so contagious. With that said, I really would like to encourage you to show your happiness everyday, and then realize that your day is automatically brighter by doing so. I also think that it will help you realize everything you have to be thankful for. I am a strong believer that your happiness can have a huge impact on someone else’s life as well, and I think that one of our “duties” in life is to help and encourage the people around us.

Second Year ✅ 

I can’t believe that we have only had our blog for less than a week and I already have my first advice for anyone thinking about starting a blog. Don’t start a blog the same week as finals!

I can honestly say that I have never had a more stressful finals week that this one, so much to do and not enough time. I think the hardest part with finals is that you can feel that you’re so close to being done that the motivation and energy is not really there.  There are so many papers to write and project to do and so much information to cram into your head which makes it impossible to know where to start. Even though I try to prepare and plan everything in advanced it still gets overwhelming. So if anyone has any good advice, please let me know!

Having all that said, I can’t believe that I’m ending my second year at university. Where does the time go? When did I get so old? It doesn’t feel like it was that long ago since I graduated from high school, even though a lot has change since then. It’s always a  bittersweet feeling at the end of a school year, because I can kind of take a second to think about where I am right now in my life and where I’m heading next. I also know that there are a lot of people that I have met during the year that I might not never really see again ( Sometimes I even wonder what really happened with some of my old classmates 🙂 ).

Trust me, my desk is not always this organized 😉

Although there are a lot of work at university I have really enjoyed it so far. I love that there are so many different people I get to meet, people with different backgrounds and cultures, there is so much to learn just from the other students. I also like all the opportunities there are, and new things to try and experience. I think that university suits me a lot better than high school ever did and I’m excited to see what else this experience has in store for me.

🖤 What is your favorite book?

One of my passions in life is reading books. It might seem boring for some of you, but for me one of the most relaxing things is to be completely lost in a separate world where you can imagine yourself as another person. One of my favorite authors is Jojjo Moyes. I think I’ve almost read all of her books except for 2 or 3 Oops 🙊. My all time favorite book is After You which is the sequel to Me Before You. I read it during a difficult time in my life, and to be honest it was almost like therapy for me. I absolutely love that book. It mean so much to me!

🖤 If I could travel anywhere right now, where would it be?

That’s easy! I would fly to London, England in a heartbeat! Then take the underground to Covent Garden and eat at my favorite fish and chips place 😂

🖤 Favorite quote?

“Grow through what you go through”

🖤 What is one of your passions?

I have a lot of passions in life, but one of my biggest passions is to paint on canvas with acrylic colors especially blue ( don’t know why ). I wouldn’t say that I’m the best at it, but it helps me to relax whenever I am feeling stressed and overwhelmed. It gives me a break from everyday life. I usually just paint different shapes and abstract things, whatever I feel like.

🖤 Best life advice?

One life advice I would give all teenagers out there is to never to give up!! The boundaries are imaginary. The obstacles are made up and the limits don’t exist. Never let anyone make you believe that you can’t do something, the most important thing is to never care what others might think. Do what you love and don’t let anything or anyone stop you.

🖤 Something you like?

I love the moment when I walk past a person that just smells incredible, especially if it is a guy. There’s just something about men’s cologne.😁

🖤 Biggest pet peeve?

Easy! If you’re a person that doesn’t wash your hands then you and I can’t really be friends, but I hate to say that because I do want to be your friend, so please just wash your hands.

AND

Don’t even get me started on double dipping.😂

🖤 What is one of your passions?

Life is my passion! ( cliche but so true )

🖤 Best life advice?

 I honestly believe that thinking about others and taking time off of your life to help the people around you will make your life much happier and more successful. We often get too caught up with ourselves that we forget that people need people, life is better when you have people to share it with, therefore we need to be there for each other.

🖤 If I could only eat one thing for the rest of my life, what would it be?

I have never met a person in my life before that loves seafood as much as I do. I’m not kidding when I say I would be able to eat shrimp everyday for the rest of my life.

🖤 If you got the chance to compete in the Olympics, what sport would you compete in?

For winter it would be the ice dancing, always wished I could do that. For summer I think it would be swimming just because I love to be in the water.

🖤 What was your dream job when you were younger?

When I was about five years old my dream job was to become a midwife, haha is that wired?

🖤What is one of your passions?

There are so many things that I really love to do, and I’m always up for learning new things, but one of my biggest passions in life is dance, all different styles equally. I love to just move around and being able to have control over my body, and it really is the best work out.

🖤 Best life advice?

I think that it’s important to see the good in everything life throws at you, and to have family and friends close, you need them more than you think! 🙂
