How to start getting your life together

    On my last post, I said I learned (the hard way) that when you live alone you have to get your life together or you get drowned really fast. Yet I dod not tell you how to do so. I am obviously not an expert in being responsible and productive but I really am trying to get things in order. So I thought I would share some of my tips with you. 

Plan ahead. As multitasking teenagers/young adults, we have a lot to manage. We have to juggle between good grades, social life, hobbies, chores and much more. For me, planning my weeks really helped. I know exactly what I will be doing each day so I don't have to waste my time thinking of what to do. It's not easy to always stick with the plans you make so don't be too hard on yourself but try to force yourself into sticking to it as much as you can

Stop waisting your time. The average american adult spends 3 hours watching TV each day. When I say that it seems showing (at least to me) but when you think about it, how long do we stay on our social media ? I have the answer : way too long. Sharing moments on Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat and so on is nice but life isn't virtual. You need to get off your phone. My tip would be to allow yourself to use all these media only in the morning when you wake up and at night before sleeping (and while waiting for the bus). 

Force yourself into a routine. Here I'd like to help you take care of yourself. Once you've done everything you have planned for the day it's time to get into your night routine. It might sound hard, and boring, in the beginning but stick to it 21 days and it will become a habit. Take so "me" time everyday at the same time and you'll feel so much better. A morning routine that makes you feel good is also really important, it will help you enjoy your day much more. 

Enjoy what to do. You know what they say "If you love what you do, then you won't work a day in your life". As students there obviously are some things that we do not enjoy doing. But hey, "if you can't get what you love then love what you get". Bye lying to myself for years I managed to believe that I love studying. You can do that for absolutely anything. Follow your classes, do your homework, and be curious about what you do. It really helps enjoying a subject that you once hated.

Adulthood, a dream come true ?

   Hey everyone, as I've mentioned in almost all my posts this summer, I've been moving to Lille. I left Paris (and actually discovered that there are other cities worth a look in France), my parents, my school, my friends well pretty much everything I used to refer as "my life". The very first days were amazing. I was alone, doing whatever I wanted, but then school started and things became a little harder. I've been living alone for almost a month (which isn't that long actually) and I would like to share with you what I've learnt so far. 

You are free. Living alone means you no longer have any of the boundaries set by your parents. It's really overwhelming. It feels really nice to come home at whatever hour and not have to stress about waking anyone up or eat crisps as dinner and there's no one telling you to have a proper meal. You can have anyone over, play the music really loud (beware of the neighbors tho) and walk around naked. It might seem obvious but there is something in this ability of doing whatever I like that's really empowering. 

You have time for yourself. Well this, I think, depends on what you are doing but I am talking about my own experience. Last year my studies were really time consuming (between 29 and 37 hours of classes per week). Now that I got into the school I wanted to be in my schedule is so much less crazy. So I can pamper myself much more. I have more time to do my nails for instance, or just to meditate a little. Moreover there is not a sound in my flat, it makes meditating or writing and reading a lot easier. 

You might feel lonely. Obviously life isn't a bed of roses. You will feel the loneliness. Especially when alone in your house. I noticed that the hardest for me is the absence of noise and having no one to directly talk to out loud. That's why music is always playing in my flat. I can't stand the heavy silence of a one-person household. But the worst is obviously missing your friends and family every time you think of a private joke or see a picture of them. But don't worry, you'll enjoy every second of their presence once you go back home. 

You have to get your life together. Living alone brings some responsibilities. You have to tidy, to clean, to do the dishes, to make food for yourself, to go grocery shopping. All of these take time so you have to stay organized if you don't want to end up with a disgusting flat or house. Besides you have to juggle between your classes, hobbies, friends and sleeping schedule. That's a lot of work but I think, most of the time, it really is worth it.

A Day in Notting Hill

   I am writing this from my tiny apartment in Lille, watching a never ending grey sky and freezing cold because I like to think that I am ecolo friendly so I do not turn my heater on. So I decided I would share with you the heart warming pictures a of a oh-so-rare sunny and warm London. Me and my bestie (who took most of these pictures, shoutout to her) were strolling around in one of our most favorite areas in London : Notting Hill. The buildings and the vibe of this place will never seize to amaze me.
