The end of the year is getting closer, which means I’ve been attending Christmas parties, dinners with clients and family gatherings non-stop for the past two weeks. Needless to say, that much alcohol consumption in such a short period of time made me wake up with a beautiful hangover this morning. So I decided it’s time to share my favorite things to do when feeling hungover.
This week marks the one year anniversary of my caffeine-free life. I used to be a big coffee drinker and usually consumed up to five cups a day. But after I suspected that it was affecting my health in a negative way, I decided to try and live without coffee for a month. Just one month. Just to see if and how it would affect me. We’re one year later now, and I still haven’t had one sip of coffee since then. That must mean quitting coffee has caused some good things to happen, right?
If there’s one thing I’ve learned during my first half year of blogging, it’s that autumn is every blogger’s favorite season. I think I’m in the minority when I say it’s one of the worst seasons for me. Don’t get me wrong, I love the colors everything gets and the crunchy leaves, but that’s about it. Instead, I’m extremely excited about winter. Here’s why.
Lately, I’ve been doing really well. I feel like I’m getting control of my life, and feeling more and more confident and happy each day. Working on improving myself and being in therapy has taught me so much the past few months. There’s so much I know now that I wish I knew when I was younger, especially as a teenager. Life will have its shitty moments but they won’t last forever. And there’s nothing wrong with asking for help when you feel lost.
Autumn has clearly come to an end in Oslo. The temperatures have dropped below zero, and snow has covered the rooftops in the city. In other words, time to reflect on the past few months and write up my favorites, goals, best and worst memories of this autumn. A bit early for an autumn round-up? Maybe. But in my eyes, winter started last week when the first snow came, so waiting any longer would just feel weird.
