WHAT A SHITTY DAY.

Ok, today I had the worst day at work. Like really really horrible. I was VERY close to crying.

  • At first my boss criticized me for my work. Appaerently I’m not doing a good job - which is totally not true. I do a good job, I work very hard, he just can’t see it. I’m not one to overrate my own work, but I defintily know when I’m doing a good or bad job.
  • Then my co-worker got the same critic. My boss yelled at her, he got disrespectful. She said she just can’t do it anymore and then she quit.
  • I was close to crying, because know I’m all alone again with all the work load. I’m not angry with her. I totally understand her reaction.
  • The thing is I would like to quit too. I really want to, but I have to find another job before I can do that. Also I’m pretty scared how my boss is going to react. He was so nasty to my co-worker.
  • Besides that: my car has a small scratch, because someone hit his car door against my car. I just saw the scratch this morning. I have my car since 6 months, like can you not.
  • My alarm didn’t go off this morning, so I didn’t made it to the gym, gladly I was still in time to get to work on time.
  • I don’t wanna go to work tomorrow. I really don’t. I this adulthood? I wanna quit. Go back to kindergarden, play all day and be happy.
  • Today was a day where I really wished I wouldn’t live alone. I would have really needed someone to talk to, to hug me, to tell me that things are going to be fine.
  • Always say yes to seeing friends
  • Eat breakfast every day
  • Recognize that positive change rarely happens overnight
  • Accept the fuck-ups, but try not to let them happen again
  • There is a song to remedy every situation on the planet
  • Appreciate the people in your life
  • Look for the good in everything
  • Try new things and try them often
  • Treat yourself as well as you treat others

HAPPY SUNDAY FRIEDNS!

  • As seen above, I went to the gym two times last week. I aimed for three times, but I felt quite low in energy, because it was incredible hot outside. Squats are getting deeper. still doing Sumo Deadlifts and they actually way harder for me than normal ones. I take that as a good sign.
  • On a not so happy note: I made the misktake to check facebooks pages from friends I went to school with. We’re lost contact over the years, but sometimes I’m just curious what there are doing now. Big.Mistake. So many of them have kids, are married or engaged. And I’m over here, almost 27 and single as fuck. When I was younger I always thouhgt I would be living with my boyfriend/ fiancé right now. I know I should not compare my life to theirs and it’s not like I wanna live their life, but it just sucks to realize what you don’t have, but actually really want.
  • What I’m trying to say is that I’m not where I want to be in my life. I’m almost 27 and there is no boyfriend in sight. I also have troubles of letting go of the last guy I was madly in love with. I never told him and till today I wonder “what if”. Lesson learnt. Always tell the person how you feel or you will regret it (even years) later.
  • I didn’t wanna end this post on such a depressing note. 
I DID IT! IT’S GOING TO HAPPEN! I’M GONNA TRAVEL ALONE!
I put on my big girl pants and bought a train ticket to Amsterdam. I also booked a hotel room. I’m going to stay there from August 17th to 21st. I’m so excited. I don’t know why I was so afraid to travel alone…
I also ordered a travel guide, because I like to be prepared. If I travel alone I have to plan ahead, otherwise I would get lost.
Does any of you ever been there? Any tips?

"I wish people could just say how they feel like ‘Hey I really don’t like when you do that to me’ or ‘Hey I’m in love with you’ or ‘Hi I really miss you and I think about you all the time’ without sounding desperate. Why can’t everyone be painfully honest and just save people the trouble."

You know it’s hot in your apartment when your coconut oil turns into liquid…

Oh boy I’m praying for colder wheater. My body does not now how to function in this heat!

Travelling Alone???

I have two weeks off of work in about a month. I don’t wanna spend it at home, because that is too depressing for me. So I’m thinking about travelling alone somewhere for about a week or so.

The thought kinda scares me, because I can’t rely on someone else and I’m afraid to feel lonely. I love travelling, but I’m the kind of person who wants to share experiences. For me it’s not so much about what you do it’s about who you do it with. And travelling alone would mean I could not share experiences…But I know I will regret staying at home for two weeks, so I just have to go somewhere.

Have any of you ever travelled alone? How was it? Would you recommend it? Any tipps?

And these are the most beautiful in the world.

Happy Sunday friends!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend.

  • Going to the gym slowly becomes a habit of mine again. I just get up in the morning an go. I still haven’t talked to one person there and that actually feels good. I’m there for myself and just wanna smash out my workout. 
  • I decided to not up my weight on the squat and deadlift until my form is perfect, meaning squatting ass to the grass. I also wanna try sumo deadlifts, because I think they could improve my form on the ~normal~ deadlift and squat, because more butt action.
  • I’m really getting into organizing and cleaning things up lately. I  startet to plan my week and color coded the different ~events~. (green=health, blue=errands,pink=pleasure/fun/me time). So far I don’t have a big to do list for next week, but I’m really looking forward to my workouts and to going to IKEA on friday.
  • Random picture of my bed…because I changed sheets (currently to my ugly ones, but who cares). I wanna change sheets more often (every other week), because I like the ~clean and fresh~ feeling. I also wanna try that daily shower thing Cbel is talkign about. I think it helps to wash of the day and get into a more relaxed mood.
  • I also dyed my hair this weekend. Nothing fancy, just renewed the color.
  • Right now life is pretty good (besides my job). I’m slowly getting more organized and that makes me happy. Also reading “The Happiness Project” helps a lot. Reading about someone else trying to get happier, makes me wanna work on myself and my happiness.
  • Only 5 more weeks of work and then I have two full weeks off. Can’t wait. 

I totally need a binder like that. I also never use my cookbooks and a binder like that would be so great!

Also this channel is porn…if you’re into organizing and color-coding like I am.
