It’s weird and awkward to keep saying “i will write here more often” and write once a month..:D
But I am not giving up yet. September was challenging – I had extreme breakdowns, paranoia, anxiety and it was really hard to deal with headaches and terrible nausea and, I guess, food poisoning.
I won’t get into negative details – I am just feeling myself better. Today I thought I just might share 5 things which made me feel better in September.:D (till this day of course, and probably for the rest of my life)
1. A cat
Goga (that’s my cat’s name) is something that makes my days easier. Coming back from work tired and cold, coming back from a meeting, walk – anything – Goga is always down to cuddle and take a nap together.
Without any doubt – books made me feel better. I haven’t read a lot in September and I really felt strange about it. I was in the library yesterday and it felt soooo bad turning back 3 books I didn’t read (had 2 month for it). I read two of them but not till the end.. So I decided to take two instead of 4-5 (as I usually did) and read at least this for now. I took “The Hunchback of Notre-Dame” by Victor Hugo (in lithuanian) and “Master and Margarita” by Mikhail Bulgakov (in russian), and I am really excited to read those.
3. Shopping. Makeup.
It’s really weird for me to type such things because all my life I’ve been a tomboy – and I still am, but in addition I have some make up and skirts.:D In fact I have never bought makeup for myself, for MY OWN money, I always used something my mom doesn’t like, need or use, so I never had my OWN makeup, You can see by looking how small my “makeup bag” is 😀 but now I am changing kinda and I can proudly say, I recently purchased my very own foundation, some make up brushes, face masks, hand cream aaaand eyeshadow palette.
Since I spend minimum 15 days a month (+11hrs per day) at work it’s hard to find time for friends that would fit us both. I miss a lot of opportunities to do things I did a while ago, I miss some people and it makes me feel lonely and sad because I really started enjoying talking to people and unfortunately, I get to do it rarely. It’s a big change for me, because I have always been an introvert – I am still shy and awkward, but now time spent with my mates is more precious than ever and I try to cherish it and take the best of it.
5. Autumn coziness.
Candles, hot drinks and snuggling into a warm blanket when it’s so cooold outside on Your free day – what could be better?! I really love candles, especially in autumn/winter time. The more candles – the better everything is! I got 3 cranberry scented candles what remind me of autumn and 1 in strawberry to remind me of summer (all from Ikea)
I realized recently how tasty and calming peppermint tea is so I enjoy a cup (or 10) everyday with no shame. And since it gets colder day by day – I enjoyed some hot chocolate today.
