First autumn day

I’ve been looking at this blank space for a while now. It’s been empty the last couple of weeks – and it’s been empty in my head too. I don’t know how to fill this space. I don’t know how to start even though I’m aching to write again. I want to be an inspiration, share my thoughts and mind with you again.


It’s September 1st, summer is officially over, even the weather can agree on that. It’s windy, it’s cold and rainy. What I have learned is that time is always moving. We cannot stop it even though we want to capture a moment and stay in it. That is why you have to live in the moment. Don’t let it pass you, don’t feel the need to document or capture every other second on a picture. Sometimes it’s better to live and let go.

Home-(less)

The day has come.. I’m without a home for the next three weeks. But I’m staying with my mum till we’re on our 2,5 week long vacation in one week. Oh, how the butterflies are coming and I can hardly wait. My favorite thing to do – travel – getting to the unknown, discover new places and experiencing new cultures.

I’ve tried to make myself as comfortable as possible at my moms again, which can be harder than it seems since I’ve never felt truly at home where she lives. So I can’t wait to see the new place again and move in. I’m proud of myself though. I haven’t cried since I left my place this morning but my heart aches to go back there. I know I can’t change the present so there is no point in complaining about things I have no control over and can’t do anything about.

“When life gives you lemon, make lemonade”.

Now my eyes are about as tired as they can get so I’ll end this post now with wishing you all a good night.

You can’t change the present

Lately I haven’t prioritized blogging only because there’s been so much going in my life right now. So I’m taking this moment while I have the time at my friends to reflect and talk about what’s been going on.

On the 24th of April I got home from work and I was waiting on some news from the owner of the house I live in right now, and even though I had a really bad feeling I didn’t want to listen to it. So as I get into the house I ask in a sarcastically voice if we have to move now, and unfortunately the answer was yes. I sat down and talked about it and it results into that we have to move before the 1st of August. That night when every soul was lying in their bed resting their head I was reminiscing about all the memories and cried myself to sleep.
I’m already deeply into looking for a new place but it’s harder than it looks, so I just have to keep my fingers crossed so that we’ll find something as soon as possible.

What I’m learning through all of this that you can’t always plan everything even though you want to. Things change, but maybe it’s for the best and you get the chance to look at your life and think about the positive things coming from an unpleasant event.

My journay through 2013

I thought I’d do a throwback since I have some time on my hands I want to take a trip to memory land and remember what made 2013 so special. So let’s go back to the beginning..

New year’s – My family just flew home after spending the holiday’s in the cold north. And as new years snok upon us I had big hopes and expectations. And on that very night on new years I knew that 2013 would be great.

When you find your other half – After passing February 14th I found out that my long-lasting crush was more than just that. I started looking forward to the end of the first half of the year and started figuring out who I wanted to be.

Getting up when your down – After spending an amazing time in Germany with my Family for 3 weeks I came home getting devastated news, or so I though at that time. I had to learn how to push myself up from my own distractions. And I wouldn’t have made it without my best friend who has been there threw it all.

1st of August – The day I was dreading but also looking forward to. This would be a new start and a way for me to get a clean slate. This was the day I started working as an intern at my hairdresser salon where I’ve been working as a extra-help for the past year. Already the first day and hour at my new job I had customers, and now when I look back I’m glad I just threw myself in it.

18th birthday – The day I’ve been waiting for since I was 8. Finally I turned 18, but I was actually dreading the last few weeks before this day. I wanted to stop time and stay 17. The though of being 18 scared me even though I knew I would get a lot more freedom. The day came and it was a total disappointment. I tried not to have any expectations but I have to say it was really hard since I turned 18 and this only happens once and is supposed to be special. The day went by just as fast as it came. And after all the waiting since I was little it wasn’t all that.

26 of September – One month after my birthday and only 3 months after I had taken my first driving lesson I stood in front of my drivers test. I past With flying colors and I finally earned a bit more freedom.

Berlin 2013 – My second trip in 2013 was to Berlin for the 4th time with my best friend. It was planned a year before but only started to sink in the week before departure. We would be alone in a different country for 5 days. We had a blast and really got to know each other more as well as the city, Berlin.

Moving back home – In the mid of October I packed up my things at my mum’s house and moved back in to my childhood home. I knew this would give me more peace and room to breath.

Perfect end to a perfect year – The last trip of the year was more of a spontaneous one that only happened 4 weeks ago. My dad and I packed up our things and flew to America, more specific Florida. We stayed there a wonderful 7 days and ended the year flying into 2014 and also home again.
