Tips to be more productive

Tips to be more productive

Hello guys, I often find it hard to be productive since I’m a natural procrastinator, so I’ve gathered some tips to help you guys, and myself to be more productive 🙂

 

  • Eat well- yes I know this one is hard, but in my book you also get credit for trying 😉
  • Plan your day the night before- I usually lay out my clothes and make my lunch the night before
  • Start with a workout- just five minutes of workout or just a simple stretch is enough
  • Drink up- drink that water guys, 8 glasses a day 😊
  • Walk everyday- I aspire to walk 10000 steps everyday, but 6000 is also okay if I’m very busy
  • Get rid of everything unnecessary-that’s both physical and mental- people that tire you down, or just rubbish laying around. Everything matter.
  • Set daily goals- small ones work too
  • Motivate yourself daily
    download
  • Tackle the biggest task first-also called to “eat the frog” this way the smaller talks seems easier to overcome
  • Be the early bird and get the worm
    default
  • Have a clean workspace- this makes every other task easier to overcome
  • Take things one at a time-we are often caught up trying to multitask and do 100 things at the same time. Just don’t! Actually, you get less done, and the things you actually get done won’t be as great as it would if you just concentrated on one thing
  • Make lists- I’m a big fan of lists, if I could write a list about everything I would!
  • Educate yourself- l aspire to learn one new thing every day. No matter how small it is. In only one year, you would have learned 365 things!!!

 

Thats all for this time, until next time:

I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time

Going to Amsterdam

Going to Amsterdam

Helloo guys, I have an update for you guys!
Next week I’ll be going to Amsterdam with my school, so I won’t be able to post until next weekend (hopefully)

I have been to Amsterdam once before, but this time is different, we are all grown-ups now, and we have a lot more planned (That I actually want to do)

We will drive Monday morning (a 500000000 hour long bus trip-well around 15 hours) and be at our hostel late, late evening.

Tuesday is a very relaxing day, we will have a tour in Amsterdam and afterwards visit a lot of shops. I know this sounds like shopping, but since I’m on a business school, we have to take into account all the time, how the shops are build and so on.

Wednesday we are going to do a lot of exciting things. We will have a guided tour in Red light District, and then drive to Rotterdam and look at MORE shops, still with their business in mind.

Thursday  we have museum visits, free time, visit at Heineken and then a trip to Red light District again at night

Friday will look like Monday. We will drive all day from morning till night.

 

That’s a short explanation about my week. 😊

Have you ever been to Amsterdam? And what did you do when you were there??

 

I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time 😊

Monthly update

Monthly update

Hello again folks, I’m back, and I know it has been a long time since last- and I’m pretty sure I said the same at the last post too.

That’s why I’m going to give you guys a piece of my mind (in a good way of course)
This month has been quite chaotic for me. A couple of weeks ago, we found out that my brother still has cancer.
He got operated against it before summer, but they didn’t get all of it so now it’s back. So we are right now going through a 9 week chemotherapy progress with him.
Yes, cancer is a bitch- I know.
Now we are busy driving him back and forth and making sure everything is as it should be. My family has always been my number 1 priority, and right now even more. We will get through it though, he’s a tough one!

Beside this, I’ve been making arrangements with one of my very good friends, about me moving in with him and his boyfriend. That will happen in this weekend. (god I’m looking forward to it!!)
Because I live in Denmark, we get paid for taking an education(yay).
Make sense of this guys: If I stay with my parents I will have money for my bus card and then about 700 dkk (which is about 94 euro) left for the rest of the month- this means expenses for personal stuff AND school materials (inclusive a school trip coming up-which is 400 euro, and then pocket money and money to eat for)
BUT. If I live by myself (or at least without my parents) I will have 250 euro AFTER paying for bus card, food, apartment, alarms, medication EVERYTHING. And this is every month guys. How in the world can this be such a big difference.
Even though I kinda whine about this, I know it´s not that bad. Most people don’t even get anything for studying, so I’m lucky, I know.

And the last big thing that happened… I got sick! Yup, like cold/flu/really bad sick. For one whole week I was coughing, sneezing, my nose was running, head was spinning and aching, my head was so filled with snot (yes sorry, I know it’s kinda disgusting- but it happens) that I ended up with an intense ear pain.

One.

Whole.

Week.

 

But I’m back again and feeling MUCH better, so I’ll be ready for a new post next week 😊

 

That was my small rant, so let me hear about yours? How has YOUR month been?

 

I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time. 😊

Get to know- my family

Get to know- my family

Welcome back lads!

 

I’ve been on here for more than a year now (yep, that’s a long time) and I just now noticed.
You haven’t been formally (or informally) introduced to my family!
So today, we will take a tour round my nearest and dearest family (don’t mistake, I still love the rest of my family, but this is the closest ones)

 

So lean back, grab a cup of tea, and enjoy the short ride

 

Mother (Pia)

This is my amazing mother. She’s 49 years old and a nurse. She is half of the reason I grew up to be like this, and I know I always got her to lean on no matter what happens

1342018144951

Father (Bjørn)

This is my handsome father 😉 He is 50 years old and works in the tech department on a hospital. He is the other half of the reason I grew up to be like this, and even when time gets tough, I know I can count on him.

249

Older brother (Tobias)

This is my older brother. He is 23 years old, and tough as hell. No matter what life threw his way, he would always overcome it. He has autism, and even though that makes him a little different, he is still loved just as much as the others

062

Younger brother (Oliver)

This is my younger brother. He is 16 years old and cuuuuuute (is that allowed to say?) Well I think he is. He is one of the kindest souls I know, and just like me, feels the best if everyone else is happy

19420835_1315659311815475_8772520563825350324_n

My dog (Cody)

This is my baby (well maybe not baby, but my dog at least). He is (oh god I don’t remember how old he is- maybe 5)… He is annoying as hell, and cute as heaven. Just look at that face! So cute!

2013-06-24 10.35.43

Me (Luna)

This is me. You know me a little, but there will come some more info about me in the nearest future. I’m 20 years old and well, I’m cute as well I guess 😉

That’s all for this time.
I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time 🙂

School supply DIY

School supply DIY

YES! I did make the header like that JUST because it rhymes. And it is awesome 😛

I’m back (finally) and I have a couple of more DIY’s for you lovely people!

So- lets get into this ASAP 🙂

First I got three different notebooks (I got the inspiration from NimC- go check her out, she makes some amazingly cute stuff Nim C youtube channel)

21291320_10211209754667417_686389946_n

You’ll need:

  • paint
  • plain notebooks- mine were black
  • imagination

How to:

  1. Find your notebook, and paint it in your desired color, I made three different, you can do that too

    2. Now draw a sihluette on the covers, this makes it MUCH easier to paint- but you can also make it by free hand

    21267745_10211209754787420_1935560088_o21268534_10211209755147429_847373884_n21269769_10211209755227431_517969270_n

    3. Start painting- and you are finished! (I don’t know where the last book went, so this is all you got ;))21290979_10211209754987425_161298725_n21284300_10211209754827421_347510736_o

    For the next DIY we have two different pencils. We will start with the easiest first.

 

Book pencils.
You’ll need

  • glue
  • an old book
  • scissors
  • pencils

How to

  1. First you will have to take some pages out of your book, and then cut them into sizes that fit your pencils21268136_10211209756347459_691149636_o21277658_10211209756107453_1526501506_o

    2. Now put some glue on the paper, and roll the pencil until it’s covered. Yup that’s it. Just let it dry 🙂

     

 

Last DIY for today, might be one of my favorite. It’s fandom inspired pencils.

You’ll need

  • Scissors
  • bowl with warm water – a plate will work too
  • Printer
  • paper
  • pencils

How to:

  1. First, go to a word program and start writing the sentences you want on the pencils in there (I wrote some of my favourite quotes from GOT). I used size 11, and it worked for me. Print these out21245171_10211209756587465_171060200_n
  2. Put tape over the sentences and make sure it’s tight. Then cut them out individually
  3. Now put these in the warm water for about 3 minutes- they will curl up. Then rub the paper off the backside-it should come off pretty easy, if not, soak it for a minute or so more. You should still be able to see what you wrote. Afterwards put it to dry.
  4. When the small tape strips are dry, they should once again become sticky, and you can tape them on your pencils. If they don’t go on easy, try using a little glue. That’s all and you are finished. I miiiight have made a little more than necessary, but well, I had fun.

That’s all for this time.

 

Have any of you tried some of these before and did it work for you?

 

I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time! :*

Back to school

Back to school

 

Welcome back guys, this is the post that has been on it’s way for a while.

This time I will tell you a lot of things so prepare yourself for a long post 😊

 

I am one of those persons that always has a lot of emergency stuff with me- just in case. So the first list (yes another list-I loooove them) will be about this. There will be one for girls, but also one for boys- even though they do not necessary need as much as we do. Even if you are not at school, this is still usable at work or maybe for someone you know.

Now for once, lets turn the tables and say: boys go first.

Boys emergency kit:

  • Deodorant
  • Lip balm
  • Emergency money
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Painkillers
  • Phone charger
  • Snacks
  • Spare set of clothes (optional)

 

Girls emergency kit:

  • Deodorant
  • Lip balm
  • Emergency money
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Painkillers
  • Phone charger
  • Snacks
  • Tweezer
  • Pads
  • Mascara and foundation
  • Hairbrush
  • Extra set of underwear
  • Hair band
  • Spare set of clothes (optional)

 

20979647_10211123137902052_1942651480_n

Now, that’s the emergency kit for students- well a basic one at least.
Now for another type of emergency kit: the one for teachers.

 

Teacher emergency kit:

  • Chocolate
  • Coffee
  • Tic tacs, mint or gum
  • Lip balm
  • Extra pencils
  • Hand cream
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Glue
  • Rubber bands

Moving on to the next thing: organizing ideas.

 

  1. Parent inbox (or just your inbox) for papers or other stuff that must be signed or paid.
  2. Have a “don’t forget list” on your door every night to make sure you don’t forget anything
  3. Create a homework station with everything you might need to do homework

20967821_10211122409443841_178498084_o21015249_10211122928176809_460739547_n

 

 

 

Now a couple of easy DIY’s for back to school, which includes:

Cute pencils, watercolor bookmarks, washi charger, Cute notebook and a reusable to do list.

Cute pencils:
You will only need some pencils (mine were just regularly black ones) and then a marker in your desired color.
You can write whatever you want on them, but this is what I chose
21014481_10211122928376814_1715492602_o20967970_10211122928336813_1120180509_o

Watercolor bookmarks:

You will need:

  • Cardboard
  • Water
  • Watercolors
  • Scissors
  • Marker
  • Brush

Start cutting the cardboard in your desired shape.
Choose your colors and start painting however you like (I just splashed some colors here and there and I think they look beautiful!)
Wait until dry, and then write whatever you desire on them
21013445_10211122409363839_805605046_n20986129_10211122409523843_1425808152_n

Washi charger:
You will only need your charger and some washi tape.
Just cut off the length you need and cover your charger, mine ended up with a floral print. 😊

Heart notebook:
You will need: normal black notebook and permanent markers in the desired color.
I just chose to make a heart on my front cover but you can chose whatever motive you like.
Start making a template if that is easier for you, and then dot around it until you like how it looks. I chose to dot with two different colors.

 

Reusable to do list:
You will need:

  • A small picture frame
  • Marker
  • Colored paper
  • Scissor

Start opening the picture frame and cut your paper out in the right size.
I had to cut it into 3 different shapes and then tape them together, but you don’t have to do that 😊
Put the backpiece back on the picture frame and just start writing on it with your marker.
Remember to choose a marker that you can get off again 😉

That’s everything, please tell me if it helped you, or if you would like some more back to school stuff (like DIY’s)

Until next time: I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time! ❤
