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.

Love Your Body Monday: Confessions of a Fashion-phobic

Clothes have always existed in my life. I do not live in a climate warm enough to do without them. But they've never been in any way central to my life. I used to just put clothes on, ones that were mostly bought for me by my mom. When I got older, I obviously started… Continue reading Love Your Body Monday: Confessions of a Fashion-phobic

Why I left University of Oxford after 2 months and never looked back

The idea for this blog post has been with me even before I started this blog. It was meant to be published on my previous one, where I was writing about getting into university in the UK. However, as this blog became my main one, I moved the idea over, and its lone draft (or… Continue reading Why I left University of Oxford after 2 months and never looked back

Friends I will never see again

My mom asked me to find binoculars yesterday. Although I've never seen them before, apparently we have a pair. And apparently they were meant to be in my room (they actually weren't but that's beyond the point). When looking for them, I had to go through all my cupboards and drawers and cute flowery boxes… Continue reading Friends I will never see again

Ultimate goals in life

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. Even if… Continue reading Ultimate goals in life

Why do we glorify running around like a headless chicken?

"I'm sorry, I don't have time to see you this week, I'm too busy. Maybe next week, but after Wednesday?" Hands up, who said a variation of this phrase in the past few days? A few weeks? My hand is up. Guilty as charged. I study full time, work part time and occasionally want to… Continue reading Why do we glorify running around like a headless chicken?

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
