Plan out your week: The Simplified Daily Planner

The first 2 weeks of the year have been a bit messy when it comes to my routines. I can better say: there was no routine. Before the holidays I woke up at 7 am, got up almost immediately, made my bed, took a shower, drank my coffee and ate my breakfast, and I was…

2018!

It is 07:36 am on the 2nd of January 2018, and I am currently writing this on the train on my way to Maastricht. I’ve been spending my first day of the year with my parents at home, not doing anything but chill and relax like probably almost every single person who celebrated New Years….

Looking back on 2017

It is almost the end of the year. I don’t know about you but I am pretty excited for New Years’ Eve. This year I am spending it with my friends, as usual, but this time we are with a bigger group. We’ll come together to have dinner and drinks, and later in the night…

How to: Study effectively

When it comes to studying for tests I am not the person who reads everything only once and knows everything by then. I am the person who has to work so hard to remember even the easiest things. The problem isn’t that I don’t understand anything, the problem is that I don’t remember anything. It…

You’ll get there

“The strongest factor for success is self-esteem. Believing you can do it, believing you deserve it, believing you will get it.” This quote is something I have been struggling with a lot the last period of time. Believing in myself wasn’t my strongest point. I am talking about believing in myself in my academics. My…

Your life is your life

I hope you aren’t held back because of a number. And that you don’t rush into things because it feels like time is slipping by. I hope you do what’s right for you. Hold on. Slow down. And breathe in. your age is your age. But more importantly, your life is your life. Don’t change…

I am a procrastinator

I’ve really been into watching Ted talks lately. Maybe something I shouldn’t be spending all my time on because I have many other things to do. I convince myself it is not that bad because these talks are educational and I’ll learn from them. But I secretly know that I am procrastinating when I’m watching…

How to be more productive

I know it is the summer break, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t get things done. At least that is how I feel about it. I don’t like just sitting around not doing anything, because that makes me feel like a lazy person. And being lazy makes you lazier and more tired. It is…

How to: not get bored in the summer break

Hey you guys! It has been a little while since my last blog, and I am very sorry for that. I’ve been busy with my last exams and finishing everything for school. Some of you are probably thinking: Huh, wait, you are just finishing the school year? Well, yes. I know a lot of you…

TGIFridays

It is 8 AM right now and I am so happy that it’s finally Friday. I am so ready for this week to be over. I feel like I need this weekend to relax for a bit and then start fresh after it. Right now I still feel like I’m in a little funk, and…

Happy Weekend!

Seriously, where does the time go? It is Saturday already and I feel like the week just started. I have been really busy this week, which also makes time fly. Let’s have a little recap on what I did this week. Monday morning my alarm went off at 5:15 AM. I had my breakfast, my…

People who inspire me

I am only 20 years old and I already feel like I have not seen enough or done enough in this world. Which is actually a really crazy thought, because I had school to focus on (and I still have) and I have a whole life ahead of me. But still, when I talk to…
