Setting up priorities.

We all do mistakes. Sometimes we start reading a book or watch television, while we should have been writing the book we always wanted to write. Or we paint our nails when we should wash dishes. Those are small things of course, but just an example of badly set priorities.

Anxiety.

Big subject. It’s terrifying for me to even think about writing about this when there’re so many good posts and articles about that already. However, every person has a unique perspective on that and that’s what I want to share here. Perspective.

4 am’s poem.

After a night shift, waiting for a bus. For some reason, I felt like writing a poem, so I did it. Because why not? This time I put also Polish, as it is the original version.

A letter to my younger self.

Have you ever come to a point where your life from a few years ago feels so different like it was another person who lived it? Or one day you just realize something really, really important: that you have just matured, and that’s it.

When too much is too much.

Do you sometimes ask yourself if you’re doing enough? Probably constantly, if you’re like me, always trying to be productive, best version for myself and for the others. Have you ever asked yourself if, maybe, you’re doing too much though?

Autumn in Poland.

If you’re reading my posts regularly, you got to know that I came back to my motherland. Not because of my sorrow, homesickness or anything bad, just to finish what I started: higher education. Here is my try to picture Poland from my perspective in a quite different way.

A day off.

Sometimes we all need rest. We work, study, go to the gym, cook, take care of ourselves and the others, all the things that fill up our time. But, from time to time, it’s good to sit down with tea and listen to some jazz.

A day in Berlin.

A city of wide and spread underground, thousands of different stops and lines and a city of cold, concrete architecture. I and my partner went to Berlin.

Dealing with a bad mood.

You wake up. It’s a sunny day, birds are singing but you wish you could be anywhere else, doing something else. Or be someone else. You have a bad day.

A day in my life // 29th October.

I did a diary post once, in June. You can check it here. However, this time quite different one, because from Poland. I usually have no inspiration to write diaries, but when there’s occasion and will, I do it. It’s not much, but a couple of thoughts. Enjoy!

Week in Palma de Mallorca [6].

We have finally come to the last part of my trip, thank god. I think six is a good number, and I could make seven of them, but decided to combine the last two days since the traveling back one is neither long nor exciting. For previous parts, look here: [1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [Ibiza]. Enjoy!

Week in Palma de Mallorca [5].

If you haven’t seen the previous post it’s here. Before you start reading: I’m currently having a visit from my partner here in Poland, so this post is way more condensed and shorter (another explanation at the end). However, Ibiza one shall be long and picture-full, so don’t worry. Enjoy!

Last days in Norway.

My last days in Norway weren’t spectacular, because my whole stay in Norway was more than amazing. It was just cozy, melancholic and way too sad for me to handle. But it had to happen one day so it did happen. Of course I’m coming back to Norway, but for now, I have to go.

Take care of your mental health.

We’re busy. We have work, school, food to cook, clothes to wash. And then we go to bed and we can’t sleep because someone didn’t call us when we wanted. Because we suddenly feel sad at some words we have heard. Then we fall asleep and the cycle goes again.

Week in Palma de Mallorca [2].

Before I will jump into the subject: I have quite a big dilemma. The number of pictures I have and things to tell about what happened is too much so I will make four or five parts of this (haven’t decided yet). First one and this one is already up, there will be few more from Mallorca and last one from Ibiza, where we went during our stay. Maybe in between, I will post some other type of post, I will see.

Week in Palma de Mallorca [1].

I mentioned previously that I went to Spain, to Palma de Mallorca (also to Ibiza, but this later), and I have quite a lot of material from there, both travel journal and photos. It’s hard to fit 7-8 days in one post, not even in two so I will divide it into parts. This is the beginning. Enjoy!

Why do we travel.

Let’s talk about podcasts.

Podcasts are, in simplest words, one, two or more people talking about a specific topic. It’s usually just audio, but more often you can find audiovisual ones, f.ex. on YouTube. But what is special about that? Sound like quite a normal thing, isn’t it?

Being in bad place mentally.

A walk to Haslemoen.

On a fine morning of last Saturday, I went out. I was in Våler back then, and there’s a really nice walking/cycling path to Haslemoen (and maybe further, I don’t know), so I said: why not. And I haven’t been on a lonely walk for a quite long time.

Food for thought // what’s up.

It’s no firework or Sun that makes a day brighter, it’s the smile that wasn’t given which makes it darker.

Sorry for not posting for a while. I’m currently in the process of moving out as well as organizing things, which made me not able to keep up with a schedule from July. Although I must say I’m quite proud of myself I stuck to the plan almost the whole month (I think one Saturday was without post), so at least that.

There are two blog posts coming this week, so stay tuned! And definitely one more next week, after that I will see.

Have a nice week guys!

Summer in Norway.

Challenging yourself.

The Vigeland Park, Oslo.

I was in Oslo a few times. Firstly, I believe, two or three years ago, a completely spontaneous trip with my friend, sleeping at some couch surfer’s place, trying to explore the whole city in two and a half days. Then another one, when I have been already living in Hamar, for a karaoke night with friends, then for a job interview, for a walk through main streets… but never went to Vigeland before. Now I ask myself, why?

One year on Wordpress.

Yes, that’s how much time has already passed here for me and you, readers. If, if there’s someone since the beginning of course – a glass of champagne for you! I don’t know how to feel about this, but I’m kinda proud of myself I still keep writing. I used to have such a slash in the pan for a lot of things, just start everything with tons of ambitions and next week throw it away as it doesn’t matter anymore.

Glad I stick out with this platform. It’s such a good thing to have your corner on the internet. And thanks to all my readers, those long-time ones and those fresh, hope my writing isn’t the worst! I always try to improve it.

Have a nice rest of the week! New post coming tomorrow.
