Let's catch up.

Hi! Sorry it's been a bit quiet around here lately. I don't even think I put up a post this month, so it's about time we'd catch up.

A couple of weeks ago I wrote this post about my experience with university, about my doubts if I should continue or just drop out etc. I did a whole lot of thinking and for the most part, dropping out and getting a job seemed like the best option. But to be completely sure, I decided to talk to a friend of mine who studies the same, but had finished her second year. And we talked a bit about what I could expect from the courses etc. She was in the same boat as me, always had had doubts as well, but with the prospects of her last year (going on erasmus and doing an internship) she had a lot to look forward to to motivate her.

And she made me genuinely excited to go back and learn new things. But if I wanted to go back, I wanted to be sure I would make the most of it. After all, it's a lot of money and a lot time that goes into it and I don't want it to be wasted. So I want to say yes to more experiences, whether that being work experience (I definitely want a weekend job!) or just general experiences with my friends, or even on my own. I'm thinking about joining the student paper (lols) and take up some old hobbies such as music and art :) Exploring the city is high on my list too, I've lived there for two years and have never ever wandered off or gone to any place I'm not familiar with. Such a shame.

Phew, that was quite the fair bit to discuss. If you follow my twitter, you might have seen my tweets about my ruined laptop.. I spilled water all over it. Like literally ALL over it. The poor thing was only 1.5 years old. Hello unexpected expenses, so not glad to see you around.

I've also been thinking about making videos.. I think I would prefer the vlogging style, but I don't really have a lot going on so that wouldn't be too interesting, haha. But I might start a YouTube channel one day, who knows. It seems like a lot of fun!

And that's all, I think. What has been going on in your lives? Let me know in the comments :)


  1. i went through the same thing. And truth be told even until now I've still not quite figured out about myself, what I want to do for the rest of my life and if I should listen to my brain or follow my heart. Couple of regrets here and there but I guess life is about the journey after all. Your're absolutely right, make the most out of it. I'm in no position to advise but just want to share that based on my own experience, my guts has never served me wrong. Follow your heart, do what you love =)

    1. This is such a helpful comment, thank-you! It's hard enough figuring out what you want out of life as it is, and having all the added pressure isn't helping, haha. xx

  2. I'm SO glad you found a bit of clarity on your decision Liesa, your friend sounds pretty awesome too!
    There's a lot to be said for being more of a 'yes' person (I'm working on the same thing myself!) so let's spur each other on, more yeses and more adventure.
    Apart from all the big life 'stuff' in my little world, I've also been thinking about YouTube..but I'm not sure I'm ready to say yes to that one just yet!

    1. Thank-you, my friend is really awesome ;)
      I agree! I am so ready for more adventures :)
      Wow, that would be so great. Would love to watch your videos! xx
