Now that the colder days have arrived, one of the things I love doing the most on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon is going somewhere quiet for a nice cup of tea or coffee and a catch-up. I’m a tea drinker but every now and then I don’t mind a good caramel latte.
I was always a bit sceptical about becoming a vegan and I have always said I could never survive more than two days without eating a meat product. I mean, last year I decided to try and be vegetarian for a week and on day 2 I completely forgot about it and made myself a chicken sandwich. I think that says a lot.
I get asked a lot why I left Portugal. Not many people are able to move away from home, nevermind moving to another country. It’s quite scary and it takes a lot of courage. Especially if you move alone. Afterall, you’re leaving everything you’ve ever known behind.
If you follow me on Instagram you will know I’ve been on holiday last week. Even though it was in my home country, Portugal. Some people would have not classed it as a “holiday” since the main reason I go is to see family and friends, but it actually was a bit more than that.
If you’ve read my blog, follow me on social media or know me in person you knew one thing about me: I don’t like exercising. In school, I’d always manage to just pass PE, wouldn’t make an effort at all and didn’t do any sports outside school. Except swimming which I did when I was 6/8 years old a little bit after at 21. Other than that, ZERO.
If you were drawn by the title I imagine you find it hard to keep yourself motivated. Or maybe you were just curious about what I had to say. I know quite a few people who find it hard to motivate themselves. Thankfully, I am quite good and motivate myself and keep my goals in mind, and I’m often told I am quite good at motivating others.
Hey guys! First of all, I wanted to apologise for my lack of posts. Not that I have many people reading this but anyway. Since my last post, I had a busy couple of weeks and very good news! I finally got a paid job in Marketing! I’m beyond excited and cannot wait to start! But that means I’ll have to leave my volunteering position which I am quite sad about.
I am a big time procrastinator. Funnily enough, only when I have loads of free time. I hate leaving things undone, but it also takes me time to start doing them. Especially new things. Like the blog. When I started it, I had planned to write posts every 2 days or more than twice a week. I’m lucky if I actually post once a month.
One of the things I miss a lot from home is the sun. I am a sunny person and I love sunny days. And I can hear you all asking. What the hell are you doing in Liverpool/England? I get asked a lot. And my answer is always a “Clearly not because of the weather”
So it was my birthday two days ago. I am now 26, only 4 years until I’m 30. Still doesn’t sink in. I thought I’d be more freaked out about it but I’m not. I have realised that age is just a number and the age you are, doesn’t mean is the age you feel. I still feel like I’m 23 and will probably keep telling people I’m 23, though I can easily pass by 21.Perks of being African descendent.
