Its finally the weekend, and a much needed 2 day break! It feels good to be able to just be home for 2 days, because i really havent had so much time to be at home... apart from Wednesday then, but my days are long. I was actually asked how i seem to have found "balance" so quick... and well, i dont know if i have found balance yet.I mean this week i havent blogged or worked out which are 2 things in my life that take up several hours of my day each day. But it was just the initial getting back into school and learning and getting used to the hours of travelling which i needed to adapt to.
I am back to blogging and going to try to do my best, and i will write and schedule posts during my free time and then during my lunch breaks i will try to reply to emails (the mind needs a break from school work and if i feel up to it, then emailing is the best thing to do. Makes me feel productive and i am time efficient then). Also i can write posts during my train rides. If i find somewhere to sit, i can just open my laptop and spend at least an hour writing posts if i have any ideas, otherwise i will do reading. So that is a way for me to maximize my time!
And with working out, i will have time for that in the mornings if i start at 10am or later. The days i start at 8am, ill see whether i workout after school or not at all. But tomorrow i will be back at the gym, or maybe today in the afternoon. But all i wanted this morning was to go for a long run, so that was exactly what i did :)
I balance my life by being time efficient and prioritizing. If i need some mental rest, then ill skip answering emails and blogging, if i need physical rest ill skip working out, if i need extra sleep ill skip watching a series etc etc Its always hardest in the beginning to manage everything, but once you find a good routine it works well. The only thing i have yet to balance is my food intake... during my days in school i am going to focus on 3 big meals and a big snack as i dont have the chance or opportunity to eat aas i would on my days off, then ill eat more frequent. But i am sure i will find a balance there as well... and then there is also seeing my boyfriend, which i havent done this week at all because hes working and also when i come home at 7.30/8pm and then have to get up 4.30am, i dont really feel like spending an hour once i get home travelling to my boyfriends place only to get minimal amount of sleep or to get to his place and just go to bed at once. But i'll try see him during the weekends :)
Otherwise... i think i have found a room to rent in the town where i am studying. Though until i have signed the contract i am not going to write so much about it, as i seem to have a habit of getting ahead of myself and then things dont workout as planned... so for now im just hoping for the best! But if i move, then it will be easier to manage my time and i will have 3 + hours extra which arent spent travelling!!
That was just a bit about how i manage things in my life right now!!
But also i wanted to mention, it feels like i havent been writing so much "personal" stuff on here, i.e not being so open and that. But i will try do more of that, as i know many people seem to want to know more about me and my life.... the person who writes the blog, and i know for myself, when i read blogs i want to know about the actual blogger. I mean sure, reviews about food and recipes are great, but i want to know about them and what they are doing and photos and such. That is just me personally anyway, but i have had people say the same thing about me and my blog. So i will try write personal posts and such, as well as answering questions and advice posts and such :):) I think having that personal and honest touch to a blog is what makes it enjoyable to read. You knows its a person, and maybe a person you can relate to. Not just some type of robot!!
