June Thoughts

June Thoughts

Yesterday was a pretty successful day for me as, now that I’m working at my internship full time and spend 3 hours of my day in trains, I don’t actually have more time or energy to blog, than I thought I would have, considering I don’t have to study at the moment. So, I actually couldn’t keep up with my own schedule for posting, but then something in my brain changed and I understood, that if I don’t always manage to publish two posts in a week (Tuesdays and Fridays) like I planned, it doesn’t matter. Nothing’s going to happen to me if I don’t publish a post, like it was planned! No boss will be angry at me haha.

And nearly right after realizing this, all the pressure I had put on myself was immediately gone, because I remembered that I’m doing this for me and I want and also need it to be fun (work, but fun!). And this fun was again becoming pressure, to publish many posts, and as I’m not doing anything apart from working and my household I don’t have much new experiences to blog about. But really suddenly after realizing, that this is my fun part of the day and not something that NEEDS to be completed on time on top of everything else, I lost the pressure and felt more free and inspired again, which is exactly what I needed!

So, this realization was important for me to fully get my joy back for the blog.

 

I hope you’ve had a nice evening!

Love, Allie

One way to become the person you want to be

One way to become the person you want to be

One thing my dad told me once, is something he learned in a monastery where he took part in a seminar over three days. The theme was happiness, health, silence. One workshop they did was to write their own funeral speech. They should write about what they wanted people to say about them. For example, that someone would say, that they were a very kind person and very helpful, always happy, hard working etc. whatever they want people to say and think about them. Read more!

Romeo&Julia

I went to this place called ‘Romeo und Julia’ the other day with some friends, and I must say I wasn’t disappointed! First of all, the name is really sweet! This place offers egg-waffles with frozen yogurt and toppings. As I absolutely love frozen yogurt and also like waffles, I thought it would be a good idea to try these waffles! Read more!

Now I finally published a post again after nearly a month without blogging! Not having time to write was exactly what I wanted to avoid, but now I experienced what it’s like to not have enough time for everything so I’m even more keen to have posts ready for a while in advance in the future.

Podcast: Gilmore Guys

I was never one of Audiobooks as I thought it wasn’t something I like compared to real books. I love Goodreads and the feeling of excitement when I can tick a new book as ‘read’ and I feel that with an audiobook I can’t do that as I haven’t ‘achieved’ anything by just listening to it. By the way I would love a movie/show version of Goodreads! Does anything like that exist? Do you know anything similar? Please let me know if you do!
Anyway, I never thought of podcasts either and the only ones I knew are the one from ‘Chicago fire’ where I don’t even know if it actually exists and the podcast by the ‘Gilmore Guys’. As I love Gilmore girls more than anything I decided to finally give it a try and I must say I’m not 100% convinced yet that I like podcasts but I’m enjoying ‘Gilmore guys’ much! Read more!

Anticipation for Denmark

Anticipation for Denmark

I’ll be moving to Denmark for a semester in a couple of months’ time, and I am very much looking forward to it!

I’ve already bought myself a travel guide from lonely planet, which I found useful and have taken so many notes in my notebook for Denmark to have the most important information all written together.

Quest4exit, Bamberg

Quest4exit, Bamberg

Quest4exit – the time is running. Escape, if you can!

Last January, my boyfriend and me went to an escape room. It was a present for me as he knew, that this was something I would like to do! He found one near our hometown and it was amazing!

We got there and first we had to watch a video with all the rules and regulations, after which we filled out a short form that stated that we are liable for injuries or if we got scared. We were informed, that we were being monitored while being in the room for safety reasons and also to make it easier to help us if we got stuck. Read more!

Thank you!

This is my 50th blog post!

I know some of them were Friday’s quotes and not really a post, but still.

I actually can’t believe I’ve come this far until now! I still find it hard to find topics to write about, as I am limited to time and travel possibilities at the moment! But I’m proud of myself, that I haven’t given up on the blog yet! It’s quite an accomplishment to me. It’s a hobby which is also connected with a lot of work for me as I want it to be good and interesting to read! Read more!

1000 Places To See Before You Die

1000 Places To See Before You Die

1000 places to see before you die.jpg

I bought myself this book on amazon.

It’s basically a list for people who want to travel and don’t know what to see next or if they know they’re heading to one destination and want to see what else they might discover on that trip. So you can either use it as a help for traveling or that you actually want to try to see all of these places. Read more!
