Blog Challenge: Plans and Goals for the next 30 Days

Hello folks!

Today’s post will be a bit unusual. I started out with a blog challenge some time ago but then lost interest. There hasn’t been a proper Blog Challenge post in almost two years now (shame on me!) so I figured it’s time to get back to it!
The topic I chose for today are my Goals for the next 30 Days!

(If you want to know more about this whole Blog Challenge thing, click here)

 

So, I’ll kick off my list of goals with the stuff I need to do for university:

  • For my Human and Computer Interaction class:
    • I need to program an App on my own
    • We also need to do a group project (also an App but much more refined) and need to do the next Milestone
  • For my two Philosophy classes:
    • I actually have a ton of reading to do. There’s the original Literature I have to go through
    • and the book accompanying one of the lectures
  • For my Historical Media and Communication Research class:
    • Finding two topics for the thesis we need to write until the end of the semester (thankfully a group project)
    • Checking out what material we have for the topics
    • Presenting the whole stuff
  • For my Public Relations class:
    • Write a press release
    • finish the class as there is only one date left (which is Saturday, 8 hours)

Me from A to Z (part 1)

I saw a really cool idea for a post somewhere online and decided to jump on that train!
It’s about taking each letter of the alphabet and connecting it something related to me. However, I decided to split the post up, the next letters are coming up in a few days =)

As I posted this back in 2015, I updated a few things in this posts – so you’re getting the 2019 status right now!

A – Audrey Hepburn: She has always been one of my favourite actresses ever since I was little. To me she embodies everything – style, class, elegance, intelligence. I will always adore her – and most of all her movies.

B – Books: As you can probably tell from my blog, I really enjoy books. Although I have to read a lot of stuff for university I always find the time to sit down with a good book. I even feel a bit naked when I don’t carry a book around with me.

C – Communication: This is what I study at university. As of this semester I am officially a PhD student! So far I really flowers and skullenjoy it and never regretted the choice I made.

D – Drawing: I looooved to draw when I was younger but somehow along the way I completely forgot about it. However, I decided to start anew and get back into drawing. I even decided to broaden my artistic horizon and gave watercolors, pastel and acrylics a shot. Continue reading

Blog Challenge: Something you are proud of

Something I am really proud of happened just a few weeks ago.
I am talking about my final written exams. Today I found out how I did there. It turned out I got two As and one B. Of course this is a thing to be proud of but to me, it means a lot more.

About a week before the exams I got really ill. I was in such a bad condition, I even had to go to hospital. There I tried to study as well as possible (which really wasn’t a lot). When the exams finally took place I had to argue with the doctor so they would let me go to write them. Continue reading

Blog Challenge: Write a short scenario set in a fast-food restaurant.

They were sitting across from each other. Pete still talked but she stopped listening fifteen minutes ago. Her head felt like exploding, she couldn’t get her thoughts in order. She was trying so hard to focus, to really understand what he had just told her. It was almost impossible to get the thought of him being with someone else in her head. She was holding onto her paper cup so hard that she crushed it, spilling coke across table.

“Jen? Are you okay?” Taking a deep breath and nodding she didn’t dare to lift her head. The look in her eyes would reveal what she really felt, she’d never let him know. The smell of grease in the air made her sick, she needed to get out of there. Continue reading

Blog Challenge: Somewhere you’d like to move or visit

This is my #4.

There are many place I’d love to visit. I’ve always wanted to get away from here, when we were on a trip with school and all the other kids were homesick, I was sad because I knew I had to go back home. Don’t get me wrong, I love my home and my family but the place I live in makes me sick. This small town gives me the feeling of suffocating, whenever I get out of here I feel relieved, I feel like I can breathe. Continue reading

Blog Challenge: A quote you try to live by

This is my third post for the blog challenge =)

My favourite quote of all time is “I’d rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I am not.” by Kurt Cobain.

I like it a lot because being who you are is really important. You’ll never be happy if all you do is try to be someone else and try to please everyone around you. It’s important that you don’t change because of others and that you do what you like no matter if everyone hates you for it.
