This post is just a mix of random things i want to share from my past 24 hours!
First off, the school work load is at a minimum right now which i love. I feel no stress at all, and feel like i have time to both study and do the reading necessary, go to lectures (mostly for the sake of meeting friends and being social) and do other things as well. Its a nice feeling to feel like i actually have time for once!! Recently its been far too early mornings or long days of work and reading and writing and its definitely tiring. Today i could finally sleep in until 8am and wake up feeling refreshed!
Yesterday was a rather "long day" in school with lectures and workshops from 10 until 3pm, which really isnt a long day in all honesty, haha. But compared to the other days this week and the upcoming week thats a long day.
I also got my result from the test i did 3 weeks ago, and i passed which i am so glad over. I was worried that i wouldnt as the questions werent the "right" questions for what i had studied, so i felt a little irritated over that but now i am glad that i have passed and i still remember 98% of what i did learn during my weeks of study.
Another thing which happened yesterday was that on my way to the bus after school i saw a guy sort of wink and try to get my attention. I thought he was a tourist asking for directions so i stopped and pulled out my earphones to see what he had to say. He was very nervous and started off by "You are very beautiful and i was wondering if you would like to get a coffee with me someday." I was completely taken off guard and sort of confused so i am sure i stood there for a full 5 seconds just trying to comprehend what he was saying before i smiled and said he was very sweet, but no thank you. I thought it was very cute and brave and think more people should dare to do that. A part of me felt a little bad that i had said no, i should have given him a chance. ... but then i reminded myself that 1) first reaction was that he wasnt my type 2) he was just a random stranger on the street who thought i looked good and 3) i really dont know what his intentions were. It was brave of him, but i think i made the right decision to say no, haha. Best to not give my number out or just go on random dates from people who ask on the street.
In the evening i didnt do much apart from make some falafels and then go for an evening walk and talk to my mum.
Yesterdays lunch but from a mealbox in school, haha.
The daily picture of Daisy that my mum sends.
Then today i got to sleep in before deciding to go and explore the area i live in. Ive gone for short walks in the evenings but i havent fully explored the area and i would like to find some sort of nature/forest area close by that doesnt take 40 minutes to walk to, haha. I didnt manage to find any forest, instead walked along the pier and got a better idea of where i live and put together different locations. I.e once again realising how close different areas of Gothenburg are!!
I still have plenty more exploring to do of this area but i have plenty of time as well i guess!!
Then when i got home i started to make chocolate buns which i had seen a recipe for. I had some left over aquafaba which i wanted to use up, so just whipped together something and well.... they turned out the way they did. Nothing special in taste or appearance, more like a sweet bread with some chocolate inside, haha. Im going to give some to my flatmates and see what they say!
^^ Todays lunch.
Today i dont start my lecture until 14.45 so now at 2pm i am going to get myself ready (after spending the morning baking and studying) and then head off to school. Always feels strange with afternoon lectures - i much prefer the 10am ones, but ive atleast had a productive and lovely morning so i cant complain!!
And one last note... my next course that begins in March we are going to study more about nutrition and different food groups as well as alot of practical work. Part of the course and litterature reading is about sustainable diets and giving advice about nutrition and also taking into consideration the climate and environmental impacts of the food. So we are going to be reading some articles about vegan diets and even about the new "eating insects" thing which might be the future. I am skeptical to eating insects and do personally think its a little ethically wrong, but i havent done so much research about it either and it could be a great thing - but once again, i dont exactly ethically promote it.
But i love how universities are now teaching about the environmental impacts taking sustainability into consideration when it comes to nutrition. For far too long diet recommendations havent really thought about that (from what i understand.), but also i think its great that we will read about vegan and plant based diets as well!!
Anyway, a long post with different things which i wanted to share. Basically a positives of the past 24 hours, hahaha.
What are YOUR positives of the week so far? Or have you reached any goals you want to share? :)
