Hello and so sorry for the lack of updates and lack of reply to comments. Life, school and health come first!
I thought I would write a little update, so at the moment I'm studying physiology which is super interesting but also so much to learn. All about the brain and nervous system, different transport methods in the body I. E glucose to the cells, salt and calcium into the cells and bones, oxygen through the lungs and cells and not to mention about hormones, muscle movement and the different Latin names of body parts! Luckily I don't hace my test until January and I did pass my biochemistry test so there isn't too much pressure at the moment. But at the same time it's so fun to study and learn that I don't mind doing it at the moment, not to mention that a few hours have been spent just watching YouTube videos about the brain and nervous system and muscles, so can't say that studying is too difficult!
What am I doing apart from studying? Mostly sleeping and eating. I've been hit with an infection in my lungs so I've started taking anti biotics and well, it leads to an emotional roller coaster and extra tiredness as well as nausea and lack of appetite which sucks. Mentally I want food, physically my body is saying no.... but making lots of soup and eating bread and nuts which are easy to eat and don't upset my stomach. But otherwise, all of you curious about my weight, no I haven't lost weight, I've actually gained weight since September/October and yes I'm a healthy weight! Next week I'm going back to the hospital and going to see if I can get some blood tests just to make sure that I am getting the right nutrients. I think that everyone should get blood tests done 1-2 times a year just to check. I mean no point taking extra dose of vitamins if you don't need them!!
Otherwise I've gotten some questions about why my blog feels "less personal". All I can say is that how much I choose to write and share depends on my life situation and how much I want to share. But also I'm more aware of who reads my blog.... my family and people on my life read my blog and well, I do want to get into the dating life again (though in all honesty I hate dating.... I just want deep conversations and to know a person. I hate small talk!!!!) And it's so easy to just Google my name and find my blog, so well I guess I'm just being more aware of what I share and who reads! But of course I'm very honest and open here nonetheless, if I need to write out my thoughts I will... but like I wrote 2 days ago. I feel very happy and content with life at the moment :)
Lastly.... 2 weeks until Christmas and only now am I buying Christmas presents!! I'm not so much about material items and don't like the whole present thing for birthdays or Christmas, I think it's far too materialistic. But at the same time, I love when I know that I can buy an item for someone which they will truly appreciate,that makes me happy!!! It's funny though how I can easily spend 50 euro on a present for my sister but if I see a top I like that costs 15 euro I'll be like "nope, far too expensive and unnecessary. I already have 5 tops from 2012, why do I need more". I just can't seem to buy anything for myself unless I have a present card, but I can easily spend money on others? I think it's because I just see all items as unnecessary and materialistic when it comes to myself but for others I feel like I make them happy by buying them something they want or need?
What are your opinions on Christmas presents? Are you celebrating Christmas this year or maybe it's just "another day"?
Anyway, for now I am going to study and then take a nap because the antibiotics steal all my energy!!! I'll be lucky if I manage to go for a few walks these next two weeks,hahahah. The last time I spent so little time at the gym was in 2011 when I wasn't even allowed to exercise!!! ^-^
