Month no. 6
Day Zero Project

– progress of month no. 6 –
Can we start by acknowledging that the GIFs above are very cool? I figured out how to loop them in blog posts not too long ago and it might be a new thing, just wanted to warn you. But we’re not here to talk about GIFs, we’re here to talk about the Day Zero Project and its progress. Again, I didn’t actively try to achieve any of the things on the list, which kind of sucks. Can we blame it on winter and meh weather and more of these things? Thanks.

77.   Visit a cat cafe [07.03.2020]
One thing that I can actually check of the list: visit the cat cafe! Not even on my own initiative, but on my boyfriend’s, because he took me there for my birthday. In case you’re wondering, that’s not the ‘very mean’ part; the ‘very mean’ part is that all cats had to remain in the cafe. I wanted to take one. (Or two.) Read more ยป

June 2019
ESC-diary in retrospect, month no. 10

– 1st of june, saturday – 
My parents were still in Dornbirn and we drove to Switzerland, to Walensee, a lake I wanted to see very badly. It was a super sunny day and we hiked along the lake, also into the forest-y area next to it. Then, when we were back in the sun, I noticed that my dad had a bat on his shirt that refused to leave. My mother panicked and my dad had to take the shirt off to get rid of the bat. It was hilarious, I laughed so hard (and thanked the universe that the bat wasn’t on me). Read more ยป

May 2019
ESC-diary in retrospect, month no. 9

– 1st of may, wednesday –
The first of May is a holiday in Austria, which meant a day off work for me. I needed a calm day, to disconnect and to think. I took the train to Hohenems, where I went hiking to the ruins of an 11th century castle. I turned off my mobile phone and just walked around outside, taking breaks writing in my journal. In the evening, I went to a concert of Eagle-Eye Cherry with two friends, which was really nice. Read more ยป

Rethinking 2020 ๐Ÿ€

– rethinking is good –
Of course, making a list of goals at the beginning of the year is good, but in my ever-changing reality reconsidering them sometimes is even better. Even if that means heartlessly ripping out a page of my journal and redoing it. And that’s exactly what I’m doing here: rethinking 2020 and the goals I have for the first year of this new decade.

My life is split up into three categories, if it’s even possible to split up a life in three categories.

    • There’s work, the place where I spend four days a week.
    • There’s free time, consisting of the other three days in the week and my evenings.
    • And there’s the people that are in my life, throughout all the seven days.

The work should be fulfilling, the free time should be spend wisely and the people should add something positive to my life. Read more ยป
