The week that has been…. (week 21)

Hello and happy Sunday everyone!! 🙂

Another week that has just flown by and i have barely registered the days passing. This week has felt like a lifetime… if i think about the fact that this time last week i was sitting on a train from Stockholm. Feels like i have done so much, yet so little this week….

This week has consisted of several workdays, long days at school with essay writing/Project work as well as presentations and lectures. One of the lectures was about “how to sell yourself/communicate when trying to get a job/pitch a project idea etc” which was very interesting and useful for myself.

I even went to some extra lectures outside of school time with some of my friends. One of the lectures was about gluten/ibs/celiac another about veganism and the last one was more about food in general/eating for energy and a bit about additives and e-numbers, but i didn’t stay to listen to that lecture.

I have had a little time to sit in the sun for at least an hour or two, and found a new vegan energy drink i wanted to try…. not a huge fan, so i will stick to the other brands i usually consume.

I bought some dried mango from a health food store (I can spend hours just browsing around in these types of stores!).

I’ve been to the gym twice this week… but going to go again today as long as i don’t get called into work.

And lastly, i went to a class party on Friday evening. As next term many are doing studies abroad or they are working/doing internship and everyone will be studying different courses. So we decided to have a class party to end the term right (even if we still have one week left). I had a good time, but because i am rather introverted i can often feel like i just sit and listen/feel left on the outside because i don’t get overly crazy/extroverted… always have mixed feelings for parties like this. But i did have a good time, even if i didn’t wake up feeling amazing and having to work on Saturday with only 4 hours of sleep.

Also found a new vegan wine (not all alcohol is vegan – read HERE – so i like when it is marked out so that i don’t have to Google!) (Note, i don’t promote alcohol consumption, however a glass or two every now and then isn’t unhealthy as long as you are legally allowed to drink. The best of course is to not consume alcohol and i rarely drink, it all depends on how i am feeling and the situation. If you drink alcohol, do it in moderation and if you don’t drink alcohol, that is amazing and stick to that decision!)

Aside from this, i haven’t done much else – or had time for anything else. I have finally gotten a more regular sleeping schedule, falling asleep before 11pm and waking up at 6.30am almost everyday this week…. which feels amazing! The worst is when you can’t fall asleep and are awake until 2 or 3 in the morning and then end up waking up at 9 or 10am and feeling like half the day is gone or you have missed a lecture or have to skip your workout because you have to work etc

So hoping that this regular sleeping schedule will last for a while at least!

I hope you have all had an amazing week and are looking forward to the new week!

    Good to read that you`ve had a great, but busy week 🙂
    Can I ask you how you managed to get your sleeping back on track? My problem is not so much actually falling asleep at an appropriate time but managing to stay asleep throughout the night – I am always waking up in the early hours and end up getting up as I get so fed up tossing and turning 😦 So any tips you can share would be useful!


    1. Hmmm i wish i could give you some good advice but both studying and working just made me so tired so i fell asleep almost as soon as my head hit the pillow. However, now my sleeping schedule is all messed up again as i have been working evenings and come home so late. And instead of being tired i just get all energized, so that sucks. Also the heat doesn’t help with sleeping. I can’t really give any better advice, but maybe some medititation, writing and chammomile tea before bed may help 🙂
