Continuation…

Hello world,

so I haven’t been posting anything for almost a year now and I can not even tell why.

However, I took my time to collect a few photographs to put in that small article and maybe this blog will be coming to life again.

So, where should I start? This year for the first time, I went skiing. And it’s breathtakingly amazing. I love it! Anyway, I did not take my camera to the skiing itself though, I didn’t want to risk that, ever since I was very likely to take a fall here and there (I somehow did not care much about ending up on the ground or in the forest now and then) my camera might have broken or something.  At least I found a picture of the road trip:001What’s next? Yeah, right, I do these things I call selfie sessions, you know, when a person sometimes has literally no idea what to do with her time, this is what eventually happens. Mostly I do usual social media selfies, like the one below: 004bBut sometimes, these sessions get really out of control, and I just take my camera and my bike and the next thing I know is I am running through the trees or a field or whatsoever. This is what came out last time:

Then there was my schools choir camp in June I think. Or May? Or April? I don’t remember, doesn’t matter anyway, but the weather was beautifully sunny, still a little cold though, but we spent our free time on the beach nearby. It was great!

I have got to admit, I have spent some time doing nothing. Sometimes when I think about what happened in the past half year, I discover I really didn’t do anything exciting, and that really gets me down. It shouldn’t. My home is a nice place, so why am I so obsessed with getting away?!

Speaking of obsessions, I am currently crushing on…light! I love chains of lights so much. So my sister was getting married last May, and the cute little place appeared to have these amazing chains every where!

I also put some in my own room, too:

All right, that’s already it. I really NEED to do some exciting stuff in my summer holidays, they just came so quickly I had no time arranging much. Now I sit at home all day wondering if I will ever get myself to do something.

I hope this blog does not die out again!

Love,

Let’s have a picnic

Morning everyone,

a while ago I joined a little picnic with a friend :). We ended up photographing and wandering around the woods. I loved it!001bIt was just that time when the temperatures were kicked up for the first time this year and we thought we’d use our chance. 039 (2)We basically put our picnic right in the middle of a small road. But there were no people coming along anyway. The only unwelcome visitors we had to take care of were some spiders, flies and bees. 012 (2)bI love this picture of the flowers. I didn’t take it though, my friend did. My camera has got no mirror but hers does. I’m not sure if my camera would be able to do something like that. It tries to focus on everything all the time. ;)018b Like in this one. Fine as well, isn’t it?021bOh, and then there was this swan. The water wasn’t clean enough to get a better reflection.120 087bWe had a wonderful time and it feels good to leave the phone at home and just explore the nature. 042 (2)So, that’s it. Happy Monday everyone!

Reasons to have a diary

Hi, hello and welcome again!

I was thinking about what I could blog about and I thought: Why not writing about how the special little thing called diary became something very important for me. Let’s get started!180I began in 5th or 6th grade. I hate the phrase “dear diary” and then to write like the diary was some imaginary friend or therapist so I don’t do it. For me it’s enough to write down the date, the time and the day of the week. It was hard to get myself to write often or even everyday, because sometimes I was too tired to do it or just forgot it or wasn’t motivated enough. But one day I managed to make it some kind of everyday routine. And I do it for a few years now. But what is the point?039At first, to keep memories. We all know how fast we forget about funny things someone said, or even just day trips, good things. When I read my older diaries it makes me smile so much because  I’m being reminded of all those little things that made these days special. And I notice how I changed over the time. How I would have handled things differently if I could go back in time.051Second, when I read it, I sometimes feel like my eyes have been opened. I read about former problems and suddenly I see how stupid I was. Or when I thought to much about something, that turned out to be nothing big at all. And that’s important for the now. I think about my current situation and maybe I see a commonality. My ‘past-me’ sometimes solves my problems.034Third, I have to rethink the present day, what was good, what made me sad, what has to be solved tomorrow, blah blah blah. And I have to decide what to write down and what not, what was important to me. And I do it subconsciously. 041Fourth, I can’t run away from my feelings. I know that it’s always better to face something instead of ignoring it. When I, like I said, rethink the whole day, I remind myself of my feelings. It’s one huge step to be happy, because in this way, I always know where things go wrong and have to reflect how I can work that out. 027Fifth, I practice writing. It’s no joke. Haha. People that know me also know my terrible hand writing, so I shouldn’t open my mouth too wide here, but I mean it. In school (at least where I live) it sometimes is important how fast you can write. And during the weeks of holiday, some people don’t even think of touching a pen, and when they’re back at school they feel like they have to learn to write all over again. Not the best argument, but still an argument though. :)046Sixth. Hm, I’m running out of arguments. Oh, a creepy one: When you have an accident, wake up and remember nothing and nobody, then you’ll just read your diary and you’ll be all good again! :D050Yes, now I’m out. I have to admit, it sometimes is annoying to write into the diary every evening but for those who are super-lazy I can say: It’s enough to write down three or four words. I call it nano-diary-writing. You write down the ‘Higlight Of The Day’ (Short:HOTD), the ‘Worst Thing Today’ (WTT) and the ‘Hope For Tomorrow’ (HFT). The next day you’ll see if you’re dreams came true and I find it amazing how sometimes everything I wished and prayed for came exactly how I wanted. 016Do you know any other reasons to write a diary? Do you already do it or why not? Let me know, I’m curious.

Thanks for reading (in case anyone reads this).

Love,

Flora ♥
