Back to normal life
Returned after a 5 day getaway to Bornholm – a small Danish island in the Baltic sea. My grandfather build this cute, tiny (and primitive) summer house near the coast, surrounded my corn fields and woods. Yes, it’s as idyllic as it sounds.
We have no TV, barely any phone connection, and a wood burning stove for heat. There’s no bath in the house, so you gotta jump in the ocean to freshen up.
I think it’s rather healthy to be forced back to basics. And most importantly, going (partly) offline. I’m on my phone constantly, and it worries me how many times I check it in a day. So a few days off the grid, just spending time with my family and s/o has been amazing. But daily life calls, and we’re back in the office.
Happy Valentines day everybody! This is not a day I care about at all however. Maybe I’ve had such a profound hatred to that day, because I’ve been single for most my life, and recently the last 2 years. Until yesterday. And to be honest, I’d prefer a man to spoil me on a completely random day, because he just really wants to. Not on February 14 because it’s somehow expected of him.
Now listen to what happened at the exact moment I wrote that sentence yesterday. My (new) boyfriend walks through the door holding red roses and heart shaped chocolates. I can’t believe he’s such a cliche. I felt ecstatic in spite of what I just said, of course. No doubt about it. I had a truly fantastic evening with my man. And I have to say it’s pretty awesome to be one of those gross newly in love couples, that I’d whole heartedly hate, I’f I wasn’t in one.
I hope your Valentines day (or just tuesday) was exactly how you wished it to be. Lots of love, SM
The hoodie is from H&M Mens department. Couldn’t find it online, here’s a few items that look like mine:
I say this every year, but boy do I mean it this time – 2016 flew by in a blur! It’s wasn’t a spectacular year for me, but a good one definitely. Here are some highlights:
I’ve become a lot more confident and at ease with myself. Especially when it comes to my skin, which have been improving a lot last year. It’s pretty wild for me to go to school, events or even dates without makeup! And when I DO wear makeup, it’s a lot less. I’ll update you on my skincare routine soon; perhaps a video ;)
After a rather scary month of worrying about cervical cancer, I had surgery without complications and ended the year with a confirmation that they got it all in the procedure. Fingers crossed that my future smear-tests show no change!
I finally realized what I’m looking for when it comes to dating – and most importantly what I wont tolerate! I’ve been dating a few guys in 2016 that in hindsight, did not treat me right. I’ve put up with way to much crap. I’m done with that!
I found out that I like programming and decided to get a degree in web development. This might change of course, but it’s really nice to have an idea about where I might end up.
