Worst week in my life

Ok, maybe I’m exaggerating, but I’ve not had the best 48 hours. Everything went downhill since Wednesday night and now I’m sitting here on the living room floor with the worst headache since this afternoon.

I don’t want to keep on dragging this complain wagon any longer, and I will try to look at life from a more positive way.


Even though we don’t celebrate Christmas, I do want to give something back to my family, especially my mum. And since this is a time of year where people usually meet, I ended up buying some gifts for my family.
It was most natural for me to buy something hair related since I work at a salon. So both my brothers will receive a shampoo. My oldest brother will also get a 3D puzzle I thought was so cool, maybe even something I should have bought for myself. And my brother in between will get a sports t-shirt. I still have my parents but I’ve got them covered with something.
I’m off to bed hoping to sleep away this awful headache. I have to be up, ready and back at the salon by 9 am, so good night.

2016 summary

At the end of every year I sit down and write down the big things that have happened the last year. It’s a great way to reflect and look back at the year I’ve had. Even though I haven’t shared a lot lately, there is a lot that has happened and I thought I’d write an overview of how my 2016 has been.

New Years Eve – A very laid-back evening with my love. We made dinner together at our first home. The power went out half way through the night but that only made it more cosy. The clock turned midnight and we watched the fireworks from our balcony.
London – From the 1st to 5th of February we travelled to England. I’ve always dreamed of going and it was a great first trip together as a couple.
May 1st – After 6 months at our new home we had to move out. We had three months to pack up our things and move.
May 18th – The day we found out that Baby #1 is on the way. A nerve-racking and exciting day with a whole lot of feelings.
1st of July – Moving day. We moved to a town 20 minutes away from our first apartment. And personally, I couldn’t be more happy. New beginnings are always nice and with an extra bedroom there would be plenty of space for our little family.
24th of August – First baby check-up, is it a boy or a girl?
26th of August – My birthday, I’m officially 21. I never in a million years thought that I would be in this place at my age. But I couldn’t be more happy.
16th to 21st of September – Lisa, my cousin from Scotland, visited. We had a lovely couple of days together with lots of shopping, sightseeing and great company.

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.

Another year gone by

As this year comes to an end, an end I don’t want, an end I’m not ready for – I look back. This year has been a blessing like every other year but this even more so. But it’s gone by far faster than any other and I’m scared for the new year. What will it bring? Will I find myself? Will I find love?

The love I found this year I feel I have to leave behind, something I don’t want to do. I’m not ready. I’m not ready to leave behind all the good things, all the memories. I’m just not ready.
I don’t think I’ll ever be able to forget the one person that made me feel so alive. The one person that captured my heart in every way. And if I’d had the chance I would do it all over again.

I can’t stop the time from flying by but it’s been truly amazing to have this week away from everyone and everything and just let time slow down.

I’m happy for the past year. I told myself several things that I would want to happen and they did. But I have to let go and look forward even though I know it’s going to be hard.

My New Years resolutions:
– being the best version of myself
– trust my life with God
– find love

Miami – the magical city

Sun, beaches, blue water ocean, the outstanding nightlife, the movie stars or the rich and famous always surrounding you – nothing sounds better than that, does it? Well, I can at least say that I’m getting a happy holiday this year, in Florida!! I can not believe it, and it still hasn’t sunken in. Maybe because we just ordered our tickets, but I like more spontaneous trips, even though I wish I had a little more time working on my tan.

Going to see all the beautiful sites in Florida like Miami and Key West, the nature which probably will be breathtaking – I simple can’t wait!
