Early mornings. I don’t think that there’s anything in this world that my feelings and opinions are so confused and afflicted by. I love them and I hate them.
Pros: you get to school or work in time, you have time to enjoy a long and delicious breakfast and you have time for some talking before you get out of bed (if you have someone laying next to you that is!).
Cons: you have to go to bed earlier in the evening (if you are like me – not functioning without a certain amount of sleeping hours!), sometimes it is impossible to get out of bed (a great disadvantage if you’re in a hurry!) and you probably have to make breakfast (since you’re the first one up!).
Some mornings there seem to be more reasons to stay in bed “only a couple of more minutes” than getting up. But generally, I like early mornings I just wish that there was something to make the “five more minutes”-thoughts go away! Any suggestions?
Lately I’ve been stuck in a gym-streak but today I actually took the step and went for a jog outside in the sun (what I believed was the warm, lovely and friendly sun of spring but as it turned out later – was not). As you may or may not know I’m not exercising to loose weight or build muscles but simply to get healthier and feel better both on the inside and outside. Exercising fills me with positive energy. Though, every once in a while I exercise to sort of clean my brain from all over analyses of different events and thereby get some perspective on things and life. Running certainly does the thing.
Anyhow, today I took the step outside and went for a jog, and it was freezing! I thought to myself the entire time, why are you doing this? Why? Go to the gym and run inside instead! But then I thought – think of food, think of bananas, think of your sacred sour milk and Cheerios that you will eat as you get back! But then… (insert sound effect) I realised that we ran out of bananas, sour milk AND Cheerios yesterday! So then what? Well, I ran even further all the way to the grocery store, bought my sacred groceries and ran all the way back home! And now – the reward!
I guess today’s message is; think of food. Food is the best motivator to push your running or whatever type of exercising you’re doing to the limit. Today, literally as I had to run even further to get the food!
For the past two hours I’ve been laying in my bed with my iPad looking for inspiration out on the net, these are some of my favourites found on one of my favourite Internet pages
I love the work space and the bedroom, both kitchens… Let’s just say that I would not have anything to complain about if any if these rooms were mine! I can’t wait for moving in with my love for real in our own apartment and to decorate and furnish it! I really should stop wasting time so much time on the Internet and get started studying again, (I took a study-break a few hours ago…) before I get too tired!
Yesterday my love and I went visiting my mother and sister and then spent the night here. We watched a really great movie, definitely one of the best movies I’ve seen in a long time! The film is called “The Words” and the plot is about an authors way to success. It’s about the sacrifices he have to make on the road to success which then of course is getting published. It has also got several time levels and perspectives which makes it even more worth watching in my opinion but may for some only cause confusion? Anyhow, watch it if you get the opportunity; interesting plot, important underlying message, great actors, music etc.
My weekend will mainly consist of studying but tonight my love and I are going to the cinema and then we’re going to grab something to eat. So I’m trying to focus upon the positive aspects, it makes studying a bit more bearable…
The most important person in my life is definitely my love. Why? Because I simply could never imagine my life without him. My everyday existence on this planet would not be meaningless but definitely close to it. I would drift around, spend a lot more time alone, I’m almost never all alone, just by myself today but to be honest I enjoy it. Sure all of us need some alone-time at some point in life but my demand for alone-time right now is just not that great.
I would not be able to study so hard and focused as I am doing at the moment (thereby the scarcity of posts here on the blog) and neither would I be able to exercise and work out as much and hard as I am doing. What can I say, he is my motivation, my love – my everything. He is simply my VIP-person in life.
It’s a bit funny though that I’m writing this post right now since I’m all wrapped up in his robe, laying in his bed alone while he is at the car workshop with his car. But he’ll be back, so as for right now I’m just going to enjoy my moment of loneliness and listen to some music!
Coming home is one of my favourite things in life. There’s nothing like hugging and kissing my love after a week apart, there’s nothing like hugging my mum and telling her how much I’ve missed her after almost two weeks and there’s nothing like coming home to the increasing pile of schoolwork… Since I came home I’ve been meeting with my friends, spent time with my love and my mum but most of the time has been dedicated to studying – how unusual?!
The weekend will also consist of studying and making up a revision plan for studying up till the real exams in May! In seven weeks it will be on and I cannot express in words how frightened I am at the moment! In seven weeks the rest of my life will be determined – or at least that’s how it feels like right now, I hope it will get better over time.
So the weekend is coming up and what will it consist of? Well, today I’m going on a concert with my best friend, Saturday will be dedicated to studying and later a romantic date with dinner and wine with my love and Sunday will consist of more studying as my “entire” English class will meet up at the library. The reason why I wrote “entire” is because we only consist of six people…
The time has come for us to begin our journey back home. Exchanging the sea, the sunshine and the heat with snow, coldness and school. There’s a time for everything and the time of relaxing days here in Egypt has come to an end. Sure I’m glad about going home too, I miss my love terribly much but there’s nothing like the feeling of waking up every morning knowing that there will be sunshine! That feeling is quite hard to beat…
I’m going to miss the beach, reading a compelling novel in the shadow of a palm tree and looking out towards the endless (it seems) sea! But on the other hand, something that does beat the sunshine feeling is falling asleep in the arms of my love and knowing that I will wake up in his arms again in the morning – every morning. That feeling is even more difficult to beat. But as I said, there’s a time for everything. But I will remember you sunshine, till we meet again at last. So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past. – F. Scott Fitzgerald (“The Great Gatsby of the compelling novels I have re-read this week).
Here’s an update from sunny and warm Egypt! Except from the fact that my youngest brother suddenly became ill and started to vomit yesterday when we were having dinner at a restaurant the vacation is very relaxing and wonderful. Yesterday I went to a spa to get some massage, facial treatments etc. the beach is great and the pool as well! I’ve only got some iPad photos at the moment but that will do!
Everything is set up and in a few hours we will be on our way to Egypt! I cannot express in words how much I’m longing for some sunshine nor how much I will miss my love. But I’m looking forward to a sunny and warm week with my brothers! Just thought I should update in case I won’t until I’m back home!
Life without a phone is not easy, I’m telling you that and just about now my camera battery died as well and I don’t have the charger with me to my mums place where I’m spending the weekend. Ohoy! About my phone, I’m in the middle of the process of switching from one phone operator to another and of course, with my luck trouble and hassles occurs… My new operator is handling the situation great and they’re really trying to help me but it seems like the old operator finds the situation difficult since they just want to sell me new subscriptions and phones from their company… Strange!
Anyhow, I’m just going to survive for three weeks without having a phone and since I’m in Egypt next week it will really just be about two weeks… I’m also off for today which means that I have survived all my exams and after a week in Egypt the results will await me. So to celebrate that everything is starting to dissolve I made pancakes!
The bottom line, we’re all the same. Even though I don’t, I still somehow believe that each and every one born on this planet (I cannot speak for the aliens, never met them…) are equal and have the same potential to achieve what they want in life. Sure some people have to struggle harder to even get the necessities in life such as food and water but still… Whatever our goal might be I believe that we all have an equal chance to achieve it, we just have to take the opportunities that are given to us. Something which I know I don’t always do…
