Throwback Thursday: Random Photo February 2021

Hey there!

I hope you’re all having a lovely week!

For Throwback Thursday I decided to pick and comment on a random photo from last year:

21.02.2021 – 2.30 PM

By looking at my computer I can see that I was working but, most importantly, Rosa is looking at me like she wants to join me on the sofa but I haven’t asked her, so she’s giving me the sad puppy eyes.

2022 Update: She still begs to be on the sofa quite often and plans on keep doing it for years to come.

Love,

Cheila

Diary of a Lazy Week – 4 Days Off: 11.02.2020

Hello Everyone!

How is it almost the middle of the month?

It feels like February is in a hurry to get to March or something, which I’m definitely not because it seems like I’m always behind on something, even when I’m trying super hard to keep up with life.

I’m supposed to be having a lazy week, what basically means I have a few days off work and am focusing on school work, stuff around the house, errands, family and just having me time.

The highlight of my week (or month) and the reason I took some vacation days is because my Maid of Honor is visiting from Vienna. She’ll be staying for a couple of weeks but I wanted a day or two to be free for her. Bitch ended up deserting me because her boyfriend, who happens to be my best friend of 14 years (I introduced them because neither had a date to my wedding – I love to tell this story to every one I meet. Random strangers as well), managed to get a couple of days off. I’m now extremely pissed. Joking, I know she’ll be reading this. I’m happy he managed to get the days off, it’s not easy for him. They’re my favorite couple and I really want them to be happy. Mostly because they deserve it, also because it would be so freakin awkward if they broke up.

What have I been up to since Saturday? Super interesting stuff.

Sunday 09.02.2020

  • Grocery shopping at Aldi.
  • Organizing and printing a bunch of uni work. I know it’s not very green of me, but I can’t study unless I have paper to read, highlight and takes notes on.
  • Having salmon for dinner
  • Watching an episode of “This is Us”. It’s one of the shows husband and I always watch together.
  • Watching “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” while waiting for the Oscars to start. Husband quit half way and went to bed. I stayed up to watch the Oscars, did not get to finish the movie.

Monday 10.02.2020

  • Sleep
  • Waking up very late
  • Forgetting my nail and eyebrow appointment, thinking it was on the 13th.
  • Reading a lot and being useless in general
  • Falling asleep at 5 and waking up very confused when husband got home at 8 something and woke me up. I guess I needed to sleep?
  • Randomly zapping (I never touch the TV) and finding “The Great Gatsby” on some random channel, watching it with husband. The movie means a lot to us for a number of reasons. It’s one of my favorite books, it was the first movie we saw together at the cinema and we chose one of the songs for our first dance. Lana Del Rey – Young and Beautiful

Tuesday 11.02.2020 (today)

  • Trying to write a blog post
  • Finished the The Storyteller’s Secret by Sejal Badani
  • Attempting to declutter and organize our office/closet/storage room. I’ve honestly decluttered as much as possible and am now getting to the conclusion that we simply need more storage or maybe a bigger house.

What about you? What have you been up to?

Love, Chey

Daily Planner and Journal – 05.02.2018: Trying to bring it back (about 8 hours late) + weekend

Good afternoon guys,

How are you facing Monday?

It’s a hard one right?

  • Hangover from drinking while watching Super Bowl?
  • Depressed because of THAT This is Us episode?
  • Shocked/ecstatic because Kylie Jenner has given birth?
  • All of the above?

Right.

May your coffee be strong and your chocolate be plenty.

I’m actually fine. I don’t care for the Super Bowl, I haven’t watched THAT episode yet (Lord help me) and I’ve been googling “Kylie Jenner pregnant” every day since September, waiting for news so I’m pretty satisfied. I’m not joking about the google part.

I really want to go back to my early morning planning and before bed journaling and update on how my day went and how I tackled my to-do list. I know you guys enjoy it and I feel more organized when I do so.

I would like the planning to be published at about 8 a.m and the update to go up at about 8 p.m. it would be nice to have somewhat of a schedule. I hope I can pull it off.

About the weekend: I did nothing. I was expecting it so I am fine with it. I needed a break. For real.

I have this huge freelance writing project to finish until the end of the week so I’m working on that.

I’m so much better than last week, thankfully.

See you soon, guys.

❤️
