It seems like November is really determined to make this challenge challenging.
Has this ever happen to you: You set out to do something and it’s just like the universe is conspiring against you, making it incredibly hard to get closer to your goal, like it’s wanting to tell you “You thought you’d have to put no effort into this? Well here ya go, sucker!” BAM punches you and then it throws a huge bucket of shit at you while you’re on the ground and then dances on your head while singing a little song?
Well, here we go. I’m being tested by the universe!
(Ok ok, probably I’m not important enough to be tested by the universe, but I certainly feel like a VIP right now…) Continue reading
…the 5th of November!
Anyone know this bit? If you don’t I highly recommend watching V like Vendetta. Or read the comic, which might even be better. Awesome story, I’m a huge fan!
Anyway, why am I talking crazy like this you might be wondering… I recently (today) learned that this fabulous little town actually celebrates Guy Fawkes by doing a gigantic firework tomorrow evening. The whole week was already packed with fireworks as this is the one official week where people are allowed to do fireworks by themselves which will end in a grande finale on Saturday night.
How awesome is that?! If Wellington is “The Coolest Little Capital”, then New Zealand is “The Craziest Awesome Country” ♥️ 🎆 Fireworks alone would be awesome, but to know that the reason behind them is Guy Fawkes, that’s just the cherry on top of the icing. I’ll post some pictures, if I get nice ones (highly doubt i though), have a great weekend everyone!
By now you should have noticed that I looooooove challenges! Even though sometimes it’s hard to complete them, it’s a good way to try something new and learn something about yourself, expand your comfort zone and make habit changes that will give you a happier life.
So without further ado, the challenge for the next month will be “No complaint November”. Continue reading
My head was facing the space between my hands and the rest of my body was upside down. I had just kicked my legs up to the wall, coming into a forearm stand which would be the first step on my way to scorpion pose. I did it! My first forearm stand in two years and I did it! Continue reading
…it is Sunday, I’m recovering from my cold which bugged me for the past week, and I can finally see the end of it, so today was the first big day for me where I was able to walk around and enjoy Wellington a little bit. Normal life proceeding in the coolest little capital on earth. Continue reading
My second time in a bigger corporate environment is an interesting experience. I’m getting sucked into a world full of grown ups and it feels like highschool all over again: The popular, sporty, the artists, emos, nerds, barbies, wannabe’s… Everyone belongs to a certain group, abiding to their social rules and norms, along with status symbols of all colours and shapes… And everybody is crawling all over each other in order to get to the top.
And in the middle of all of that:
me. a minimalist.
Who could care less about status symbols and who wants to travel the world and have adventures. Continue reading
