Happy new year everybody!
How was your 2017 so far? Have you already misspelled the year?
I was missing in action lately. My deadline for the programming project was 31.12. at midnight (I mentioned this stupid project in some of my monthly recaps. Nothing is more motivating than a deadline…)
Are you having a hard time? Did you have a bad day or week?
Yesterday was Black Friday and (not surprisingly at all) it also took place in Germany. In my city, shops were open until midnight and there were sales up to 70%. So what did I do on my Friday night? I went shopping with my boyfriend!
This week for the first time in a while, I was really bored. I had so many projects and exams in uni that I basically had a 24/7 job (well, almost). I was working on multiple projects and none of them were easy. Each project was a challenge. Now, I don’t mind to challenge my abilities but please not 24/7! To cope better with the next hectic uni phase, I have 5 tips to stop feeling overwhelmed because of too much work:
Did everybody survive halloween and the scary clowns? Yes? Then it’s time for a new recap!
Did this ever happen to you? You sleep peacefully and all of a sudden you wake up in the middle of the night and everything feels wrong? You start to doubt every decision from the day. You regret everything. You are going to fail. You will disappoint people. Nothing will work out as planned. Panic. Worry. Your heartbeat is going faster. Stress. Your inner peace is in danger. Your sweet sleep is forgotten. You are paralyzed with fear.
What to do?
This week’s Tuesday-Treasure:
Need to remind myself every day to not feel overwhelmed by problems and obstacles.
Facing a problem gives us the chance to reorientate us and grow from this experience.
Hopefully this quote can help you in a difficult time!
See you soon!
Today, I want to share a funny quote with you:
Today I met Alice to study together and in a break we talked a bit about our relationships. She was previously in a relationship with a guy who was just like her and it made her crazy. (If you don’t know Alice you can read this post.) After two years they broke up. Now she is in a relationship with one of our classmates who is the total opposite of her. When the rumor of their relationship was spreading around, everyone react the same: “Whaaaaat??!! How can they date????”
Alice is a perfectionist, our classmate is pure chaos. She told me that this relationship is a nice and refreshing change.
