Three Thriller Shows I'm Watching, and One I Will Be

hey there,

with an extensive break comes an extensive Netflix period: no deadlines (although I do have deadlines), no pressure, and no guilt. Usually when I'm on Netflix I'm rewatching old movies and tv shows that I definitely have seen plenty of times now. Recently I've been on a American crime show trip -murder, mystery, men- I can't get enough of it. Funnily enough all three are based on true events, all three have males leads, and all three take place around the same time. So if you're looking for something intriguing, here's three shows I'm watching and one I will be as soon as it airs:

New Year, New Planner

hey there,

Putting aside all this *new year new me* bullshit, I've decided to finally start a bullet journal. I've known about it for I'd say four years or so, but never quite had the courage to start one. I've always wanted to, but the commitment and the intricacies kind of scared me off. Questions like what if it doesn't look as pretty, what if I mess up, and what if it doesn't work out held me back.

If you don't know what a bullet journal is or what you can do with it, the makers of the system have shared a how-to video here, and there's plenty of other people's explanations on Youtube. Basically the bullet journal system allows you to set up a planner that works for you and your needs: you can determine how much space is allocated to day or system. You are not constricted to the ordinary planner set up, nor do you need separate notebooks -or scraps of paper- for to-do lists.

So here I am, 2018 with a bullet journal, here are some thoughts:

2017 Best of Nine

hey there,

it's the end of the year -which I'm sure you're aware of- and this period usually calls for New Year's resolutions and some serious reflection. I'm not one for resolutions, I think the beginning of a month or year doesn't set the tone: you can start whenever you want. Having said that, I do think it's nice to look back on what the past year has done for you. Seek the highs and the lows, and discover what you wish to continue or drop.

Inspired by my amazing friend and ultimate blogger Eden (link to here blog here), I thought it was fun to do this reflection alongside my nine most liked instagram posts. Wouldn't be a true millennial if I didn't include something social media-esque right. So what made the cut, what did I learn, and what will change?

Recipe for a Good Day

hey there,

happy christhums, it's christmah. merry crisis, merry chrysler.

It is the Saturday before Christmas, and if you're out and about like me: 1) why 2) good luck.Let the lines be short and the people patient. Because Christmas is stressful enough, I thought it would be nice to share my recipe for a Good Day™ so in order to secure optimal relaxation.

Here's what you need to do:

So Long, Farewell

hey there,

keeping in theme of my last blog post (read here) I thought inserting a little bit of The Sound of Music wouldn't hurt anyway. Today's post is about going home, going away, and feeling homesick. I've been in England for four months now and it has been quite the journey. Not just literally, also figuratively. I'm not sure if I've gone full Miley Cyrus - The Climb yet, but I'm definitely Climb Every Mountain (Sound of Music) level.

12 Days of Christmas Films

hey there,

There's only T W E L V E days until Christmas!!!! Happy Chrysler everybody. Time to decorate your trees, drink hot chocolate, and eat all the edible christmas tree decorations before they go in the tree! If you have any time left in between all the gift buying and decorating (and studying) it's got to be filled with Christmas movies. I love Christmas movies, they bring out this warm feeling that isn't quite mirrored by anything else. I've put together a list of my fave movies to watch at Christmas, and some I'm dying to watch this year. So put your festive pjs on a let's get cracking.

Meme, Myself, and I

hey there,

Today I want to tell you a little bit more about me, who I am as a person, and what keeps me busy. As the end of the semester is approaching and I'm getting ready to go back home the opportunity for school related posts are getting sparse. So let me take you through my week day by day!

York Day Trip

hey there,

I'm sorry there was no blogpost up this past Saturday. The week leading up to it was busy and I just did not find the time to sit down and write. With two weeks until the end of my first semester, I find myself struggling to find the motivation to do the smallest things, but I have planned out everything that's going up this month so be prepared for preparedness!

Last Friday, Gabriƫlle and I went on a day trip to York. York, ye olde one, is only about 50 minutes away by train so it was definitely a place we wanted to visit. It's also one of the most Christmassy towns, so that's also a big incentive for two Christmas lovers. I have been to York in the past, but that was a good 7 years ago. Funnily enough, nothing much had changed in those years. I found myself knowing where to go, where the shops were, and pointing out the Starbucks I had frequented for hot chocolates and frappuccinos...
