hello :) i'm really tired but i decided that i didn't want to miss a day of posting since i'm on a roll hahah. i've spent most of the day cleaning up the house because once i started i kept finding new things to tidy up. my dad went mushroom foraging yesterday so today we dried the mushrooms to use them later in the year.
what i've done today:
- cleaned the house
- did a few duolingo lessons in german (haven't done that in a while but i'm trying to keep up with german so that i don't forget it now that i don't have classes at school)
[85/100] I tracked 5:11h in Forest so far and will take a break to read now. I made oven baked veggies (sweet potato, broccoli and onion) with hummus for lunch, so that I would not eat so many sugar based meals all the time.
so I guess my 100 days of productivity are long over. I may have fell off the wagon with posting but it went extremely well. Still, I continue to learn everyday, just in smaller bouts, reviewing anki and watching Farsi videos, but it was an awesome exercise in diligence. I start grad school in a few weeks so hopefully I can transition this diligence into practice for school again. For now, I’ve been focusing on journaling. I do entries in French every now and again. I’ll endeavour to write an entry in Farsi sometime.

This haunts me more than anything, instantly takes me to my vision board and I did not spend all that time making it only to watch it fly away, so nope, going to get back to the work i'm putting away just because I feel lazy, tbh.
Also, I'm in no way trying to support or promote the hustle culture, its toxic in some ways and I would not want anyone to put themselves through it. This is just to break my 'lazy-culture' :)
The state has been sent into a COVID lockdown and I’ve honestly been having a rather nice time. Am working from home, so have had time in between to organise my room, go on walks, read books, etc etc. It feel like I’m existing at a slower, calmer pace and I love it.
for as much as studyblr may have its faults, it’s a pretty sizable online space that tells young girls that the absolute coolest thing you can do is be smart and work hard and believe in yourself and i think that’s pretty great
proof that I own more than that one dotted mug that's in all my pictures (it's my favourite one though). this one is smaller and the current fave because I'm trying to drink less coffee
study things I did today:
2× 30min studying for my DuF exam
study group for DuF (talking about the past 4 sessions)
summer studying challenge:
july 13 - what is your dream vacation?
I have three: 1) Iceland! mainly dreaming of going horseback riding (one of those camping with horses trip), I've been dreaming about that since I was 7! 2) a trip across the British isles (yes I know it's impossible to see everything in one trip but let dream me please) 3) exploring parts of Europe I haven't been to with interrail!
I feel so guilty in saying that once I got to a level of French where I could 'get by' at work I sort of....slowed down on the language grind. However, my boyfriend and I decided against moving back to Ireland and enroll in University courses in Bordeaux instead. That has just put me in a constant state of panic motivation to continue with studying French 🇫🇷 (I'm thinking of doing a detailed post on how I study french without traditional classes, would y'all be interested in that?)
I prepared my presentation for my project viva and did some office work for my part time job. I saw a movie, did some reading, practiced meditation and listened to an audiobook. To top it off, I started an online course from Harvard. It's been a peaceful and eventful day <3
