What Are Sleeping Patterns??

Hello everyone!

Okay I’m kinda playing around with the idea of doing weekly topics on the blog to supplement my videos. This way we can have at least a ~shred~ of consistency with my uploads. So what’s the topic of this week? Well I’m glad you asked! It’s…

*drumroll please*

On Difficult Topics, Anonymity and Releasing Your Work To The World

(Ok so I was looking for pictures of pugs at computer keyboards, but this came up and it was too good not to share. Google knows me too well.)

Hey everyone!

So, if you read my last post you’ll know that recently I’ve been doing a lot of freelance work, which has been absolutely amazing. The fact that my work is being exposed to more people through these platforms is honestly a dream come true and I feel so grateful! However this wider reach comes with a different set of responsibilities which, honestly, I’m still getting used to.

The Costanza Effect

So, do you know those days that just feel really, really super drab? Actually, it doesn’t even have to be a day. It could be a week, month, maybe even a year if you’re really unlucky. There’s just something about that feeling that creeps up on you and suddenly you don’t really want to go out and do new things. As someone who’s stayed relatively within her comfort zone for most her life, I can understand how easy it can be to just slide into a routine. There are no risks, no hidden dangers. You know that everything’s going to be OK because you’ve done it so many times before.

However, the side effect of this is something very treacherous indeed: boredom. Even though we like these activities, there’s only so long we can do them repeatedly before they get tiring. So what’s the best way to combat this? It might sound weird, but hear me out. What I’ve found really works is to think like George Costanza, and by this I don’t mean creating a fake business in order to sound important to people you don’t know (Vandelay Industries, I’m looking at you)! What I’m talking about is the episode where he decides to do the opposite of everything he’s used to. If you haven’t seen it I highly recommend you check it out, but the general gist of the episode is that by getting out of his comfort zone, George ended up feeling the best he’s felt in a long time.

So if you’re feeling a little dull, I suggest this: have Nandos instead of your usual Maccas. Take the bus home instead of the train. Wear your hair in a ponytail for the first time in what feels like ages. It might feel weird at first, but life is so much richer when you have new experiences. It’s like adding extra toppings to an already delicious ice cream sundae. You can see new things, meet new people and look at the world with different eyes. The only thing you need to do is channel your inner Costanza.

Happy opposite-ing!

Lots of love

The Beauty of Having Goals

Now, I don’t think it would be unreasonable to say that at times I’m not the most driven person in the world. Heck, this statement probably applies to me on most days of the week! What I have found is that whenever I am asked to do something, whether it be big or small, I will almost always put it off. That is, of course, unless there is a deadline; in that case I will put it off until it is absolutely necessary (at times this has been the day that an assignment’s due!). Pair this with feeling uninspired and you have a recipe for disaster. Example: before the beginning of my most recent semester of university I put off buying my books for so long that I created a little bit of a problem for myself. I ended up attending my first tutorials with none of the required texts, forcing me to order them online and wait five weeks before they finally showed up. By that point, there was almost no stopping the snowball-like decline of my study motivation. Without the books I didn’t do the readings, and without the readings I was behind in my classes, and once I was behind I felt so out of it that I couldn’t be bothered fully catching up. It was an absolute catastrophe; a far cry from my hard-studying days of high school!

Therefore, as you can imagine, the mid-year break is something of a nightmare for me. Why? Because I have around two months where absolutely nothing is expected of me and I am free to do whatever I want.

In other words: NO GOALS!
