If you have previously read my blog or stumbled upon this one you wont find much activity here now! But head over to http://www.rapunzelthepsychologist.com/ as this is my new blog address and a much improved blog (if I may say so myself!).
I’ve haven’t been able to post for a few days. The reason being that on Wednesday there was suddenly no wifi! And now we will probably not have internet for the next week (hopefully not any longer), which sucks. I hate internet problems, it’s so frustration especially when you’re unprepared for it.
I’m writing this in a busy Starbucks just of Regent street, just enjoying reading blogs and watching youtube. This is really making me realise how dependent I am on internet, for absolutely everything! I ended up going to bed at 22 yesterday despite not having to get up early today, simply because I was bored and didn’t know what to do. Haha, that’s sounds so bad. I definitely need to find something else to do with my time that doesn’t require internet.
I’ve did some shopping yesterday as it was payday on Friday (woho!) and I’ll do a little haul shortly to show you the goodies I found.
Edit: This post was so extremely difficult to post! I had so many issues with getting the pictures onto my computer, then the editing failed and the actually uploading the pictures failed several times and took hours so this will have to do for now!
♥Pop of colour♥
I can use my laptop again!! I forgot my charger on Monday and have not been able to use my laptop until now and I made a massive discovery. I’m seriously addicted to my laptop! I knew that I spent a lot of time on it but not just how much. Honestly, I didn’t know what to do without myself at some points! Thank God I have it back now. But I think I should really make an effort to spend my time on other things, not constantly on my laptop.
Lately I’ve been thinking about moving to wordpress.org. I’m using .com now but I’m finding it slightly limiting in terms of themes/designs and having the blog function and look the way I’m envisioning. Does anyone have any tips on how to transfer from .com to .org?
With all that out of the way, how beautiful are these colours though? I often find January quite dull and grey and it can be so hard to motivate yourself, for anything really. I find that bright colours have a positive effect on my mood and my motivation to do everything I should be doing, but also to push myself to try new things. I’m also (already..) getting excited for summer so looking at bright colourful images is definitely getting my more excited. Okay, now time to go out and do my errands!
♥Read more books♥
One thing I would love to do more this year is to read more books. I love reading, I love getting engulfed into another world, to forget where I am and just live through the story I’m reading. Books can take you to so many places, I feel like I have lived so many lives, been on so many adventures, learnt so much from who are different from me; just from reading books.
From someone who grew up reading the Harry Potter books and was absolutely obsessed with the wizarding world, I’m a great fan of Emma Watson. I loved her as Hermione Granger and loved that she shares so many characteristics of her Hermione; such as reading. I actually found out that GoodReads have posted Emma Watson’s year in books on their site and I loved that concept! I want to have a look at a few of the books that she’s read (definitely picking up Beyond Words: What animals think and feel!). I mainly read fiction but would love to explore some non-fiction this year too.
Oh, and I can’t wait to see the new Beauty and the Beast film that’s coming out now!
I’m back at work after an amazing Christmas holiday with my family in Norway. I spent the time just completely relaxing, eating loads of delicious food, watching Christmas films, cuddling my dog and spending time with family and friends.
I’m so excited for what the new year brings. 2016 has been both a difficult and amazing year. Difficult because of all the horrible things that’s happening in the world and struggles in my personal life. Amazing because I’ve moved forward career wise, my relationships is stronger than ever, I’ve travelled lots and I feel like I’m in a good place in life. I’m so excited for this new year and all it has to bring. I’m hoping for a couple positive changes that I’ve been dreaming about for a little while and hopefully they will happen soon.
A happy new year to all! ❤️
