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.
Valentine’s Day is a day like some other for me. I have never been in a relationship on the day or have I had any love interest at the time either. So it’s not a big deal for me. However, it’s extremely annoying just because of the people who decide to do love declarations to their other half. That post pictures of them together as if they are the best couple alive. As if that day is the day they forget all the problems they have in their relationships and just be in love. It might sound a bit bitter […]
People who have known me for a good while might have noticed I have changed a bit. Not just appearance wise, but also personality. Not like dramatically or anything. Just the way I act sometimes. Someone that met me a few years ago, before I moved to England would see a very shy girl, with a very low self-esteem, negative and super insecure. All things I hated in myself. I expected things to come to me, I didn’t make the effort to change. I didn’t know how to speak to people I didn’t really know. Let’s put it this way, I […]
Hi guys! It’s almost February but hey, Happy New Year! With me, every year is the same story. I have all these ideas of things I want to do, but then at the end I’ve accomplished maybe a 1/3. And one of them is always related to blogging. This time I am really committed and I am really going to make some extra time for it. If I have time for Netflix, I have time for this! (see, commitment!) So first of all, Hello. My name is Paula, but you can call me Alexa, from Alexandra which is my second […]
