Change is good, Musings

New Year, Old Me.

The 2016 summaries have been popping up on various blogs over the past fortnight or so, but I didn't want to sum up the year before it actually finished. As Polish people say, Don't praise the day before sunset. This means I'm a bit late to the New Year party. Who cares. 2016 was a truly crappy… Continue reading New Year, Old Me.

How I ended up in top 10% of my year without studying in the evenings

A little while ago I had a very nice surprise - an email from my university saying that I have finished the year in the top 10% of my cohort. I was a little bit surprised, but also very happy with myself. Because, you know, I'm not really a person who spends all days in… Continue reading How I ended up in top 10% of my year without studying in the evenings

Don’t be ashamed to show you’re happy!

So I was in one of those Tesco superstores, and I was in a particularly good mood. So I started singing quietly to myself, and doing a little dance, my basket full of avocados (because I'm such a basic bitch) acting as my dancing partner.

We want to get into university, to finish university, find a job, get a car, have children, or buy a new antique tea set. These are everyday goals we all have.

Why people telling you to never change are complete morons

"You should never change, not for anyone". It's a theme of so many blog posts, articles, and motivational speeches to heartbroken friends. And I agree, at least in most cases. Changing for someone is a slippery slope. But I'm not going to be talking here about dumb boyfriends who tell you they won't love you if you… Continue reading Why people telling you to never change are complete morons

What’s so special about yoga?

If you're looking for a post about the philosophy of yoga, how I cleaned my chakras (or whatever you do with chakras...) or how yoga is the response to all bad things in life, then you're in a totally wrong place. I'm sure Google can take you somewhere that will play right into this theme,… Continue reading What’s so special about yoga?
