Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s day everyone! I didn’t do much today just had some spaghetti (because it’s such a cliche Valentine’s day dinner!) and watched a rom-com (Romy and Michele). It was super low-key and really fun.

Let me know in the comments what you guys did I’m super curious!

Another Scary Experience!

A lot of universities need students to do co-facilitation’s which is when you teach the seminar for one class. My university is one of them. I have five of those to do this semester and I just finished my first one yesterday and I thought I would tell you guys about how it went!

Image result for sweating gif

Firstly, the seminar topic I was doing was about Kenya so I at least I knew what I was talking about and I didn’t have to do a ton of research on the topic.

Image result for yes gif

So it started with me having to explain the two articles which was alright because I had written notes on what I had to say and kind of just read from the paper. The only thing was I was a little red in the face, kind of looking down while reading and not making too much eye contact. But I don’t think it was that bad.

Image result for it's aight gif

Then I had to ask question which I had prepared which was a little scary because sometimes people just stare at you and no one answers.

Image result for staring gif

Luckily this class was not like that and people participated and answered a lot which was so great. That was a big load off my chest.

Image result for thank god gif

Plus, the professor was SO sweet and helpful. He would always chime in with helpful questions, answers and information. I thought that was nice because some TA’s/Professors don’t do that and you’re kind of just left hanging.

Image result for left hanging gif

I was super anxious the whole time obviously but it was 50 minutes and I somehow got through it without totally freaking out.

Image result for pretending to be okay gif

After the class my professor talked to me and told me I did a good job which was so nice of him. I got my results for it and I got 9/10!

Image result for happy gif

I’m glad I have these co-facilitation’s because I’m hoping they’ll help me get over my anxiety a little and be better at being in charge and talking to groups of people.

Well that’s where my story ends. Have an awesome weekend guys!

A Broken Bed, Vegan Ice Cream And A Photo Booth

I have had a very interesting day today to say the least… I thought I would share it with you guys since I wanted to start sharing more about what’s going on with me on this blog.

So I wake up in the morning and my bed literally falls apart. Like literally I sit up and boom it falls. It does do that sometimes because it’s kind of broken but I had just woken up and I was super shocked and decided I needed to do something to fix it.

Image result for bed breaking gif

So I spent like half the day tightening all the screws and duct taping everything together. It sounds not too difficult but it takes forever and is exhausting when you really do it.

Image result for duct tape gif

After I was done with that I was like you know what I deserve to have a fun afternoon and ended up going out with my sister. We passed this place called Rolly Polly Cow which used to be my favourite ice cream place before I went vegan. My sister and I were talking and I was like damn I wish they had vegan options I would so get some and just as I said it I read that they had just started a vegan menu! I was so super excited you have no idea how happy I was!

Image result for excited gif

Of course I had to try it and we ordered the one with the most chocolate because duh!

Doesn’t it look like the most delicious thing ever because it sure tasted like it!

Image result for delicious gif

Next we went to the photo booth and took some pictures which came out pretty cute but not as cute as I had hope… but that was because of my face 😂

Image result for selfie gif

It ended up being a better day then I expected to be honest and I’m glad we decided to go. I needed that!

Bye Bye 2018

So much has happened this year I thought I would talk about it in the last post of 2018. Firstly, I finally got to do a bunch of History courses at university which was amazing because last year was great and I got to do some fun random courses but I’m here for the history and I was so happy to do a majority of history courses this year!

Image result for finally gif

I also was able to travel more which was so fun and if you’ve been following me for a while now you know travelling has been one of my biggest goals.

Image result for travel gif

I tried so many new things which all gave me crazy anxiety but it was also super fun and exciting which is also something I really wanted to do in 2018 and was able to achieve!

Image result for scared gif

One of my biggest achievements was reaching 5000 followers and finally being able to learn how to balance university and blogging. I am so happy that so many of you chose to follow this blog and all of you guys are so sweet and interactive I love hearing your thoughts in the comments it always makes my day!

Image result for blogging gif

I also had a great year mentally and emotionally. I’ve always had trouble expressing myself but I think I’m finally getting better at it which is helping with my anxiety. I am also learning to deal with my anxiety better and learning how to do things even if they do make me anxious because my anxiety should not be the one in control.

Image result for emotions gif

I also ate a healthier plant based diet which was something I had been trying to do for a really long time.

Image result for vegan gif

What do I want from 2019? Well to keep doing all these things that are making me feel better and to do more things like these and to try and remove as much negativity from my life as possible. (I’ll be posting my 2019 resolutions soon so look out for that for more details on my goals for 2019!)

How Many Of My Resolutions Did I Keep

So before this year started I posted a bunch of resolutions that I wanted to achieve this year which is not something I usually do because I’m not a big fan of the whole making resolutions thing but a bunch of other bloggers were doing it and it seemed fun so I thought I would give it a try. So I thought since the year is almost over which resolutions I kept and which ones didn’t work out as planned! To check out the resolutions post click here. 

Make more time for blogging 

This was the first resolution I had on the list and thankfully I have kept it… for the most part. I mean sure sometimes I get lazy or really busy and can’t post regularly but especially recently I feel as though my excitement and inspiration for blogging has really come back and I have been trying to blog at least 5 times a week which has been amazing! It has really helped increase traffic and followers and most importantly it has given me more enthusiasm to write more!

Image result for yes gif

Eat healthier

I started eating a plant-based and much healthier diet. I mean I’m not going to act like I did not eat any junk food because you know I did but I ate healthier junk food and a much healthier diet in general which is what I think counts! I love this resolution because it really made the biggest impact in my life and I genuinely feel better then ever thanks to the changes in my diet!

Image result for doing my best gif

Write at least one page a day

I tried you guys. I really did. But I’ve been super busy and I just have not had the time or energy to keep up with this one. But maybe next year!

Image result for doing my best gif

Include new topics on the blog like recipes

I did this one! Okay, I haven’t posted a recipe in a while but I have included a bunch of new topics on the blog and you guys seemed to enjoy them which is awesome!

Image result for done gif

Study in advance and don’t leave assignments for last minute

Yeah… this one just didn’t happen…

Image result for i messed up gif

Explore more

I did! I tried new stuff that was kind of scary (thanks social anxiety) and also made a bunch of new friends!

Image result for i did gif

Read more

I’m a history major so a large part of my studies is just reading so I didn’t have a lot of time to read other stuff but I did read a couple of books that I wanted to review which was so fun. Plus, I think it counts as reading even if it’s historical sources and stuff!

Image result for textbooks gif

Build a snowman (that one’s just for fun!)

This one hasn’t happened yet but there’s still time!

Image result for do you wanna build a snowman gif

Don’t give up on German!

Ich habe es versucht…

Learn something new everyday

Well I tried and I can honestly say I learnt so much this year. Maybe not every single day but significantly more then the last two decades of my life!

Image result for sure why not gif

Start a YouTube Channel over summer

Yeah that didn’t happen…

Image result for yeah not gif

Support more blogs

I will never stop doing this and yes I did end up visiting a bunch of new blogs and reading a bunch of awesome posts and sharing some amazing posts with you guys as well!

Image result for hell yeah gif

Get a job

I’m working on it.

Image result for i'm working on it gif
