Hey guys, I hope you are having a lovely Tuesday so far! In today’s post I want to talk you through the days I was vlogging. Some of you guys don’t have access to my videos and I still want to give these people the chance to show a bit more of my life!
This vlog was filmed in two days. The first day was on March 7th, the second day was April 11th. On March 7th, my day started pretty early because I had to go to school. I got up around 7 to catch the sunset just in time, took a shower and got ready. Then I made myself a lovely lunch which consisted of a few sandwiches and a pita bread which was a leftover from the day before. I only had one lecture, which was an obligatory one and I also had to hand in a paper that day. I checked the paper for spelling mistakes and printed the final version that morning.
I thought that I was going to be late for the bus that day but I was on time! I did some readings in the train. I often get questions about the amount of time I spent traveling and I usually spend 2 hours traveling to school so a total of 4 hours a day. I have to travel by train, take the bus, walk a bit..it’s a lot. I used to sleep when sitting in the train but because I feel well rested lately, I take some pages of my syllabi with me and annotate them. It doesn’t make my bag a lot heavier and I spend the hours in the train more useful! It’s kind of hard to focus in the train but I try to do as much as I can.
I went to my lectures and then headed back home. I ate my lunch when I sat in the train and I also continued annotating contract law. When I got home, it was cloudy outside which wasn’t really nice because I had to film and edit a video. If you want to see the end result of that video, click here. I filmed and edited the video so I could upload it the next day.
After that, it was time to make dinner. I made smashed potatoes with white beans in tomato sauce and a sausage. I didn’t film anything after that but I spent the night doing a little bit for school and after that watching Netflix to relax.
On April 11th, I was on a break from school so I had a lot of time to catch up on my courses. When I started vlogging that day, it was around 5.00 PM so it was pretty much the same time I stopped filming on March 7th. I had to do quite a lot that day. I started with checking my email and BlackBoard, my university’s online platform for sharing news and updates. After that, I started summarizing a syllabus. I am almost ready with this course which is something I am happy about but I still have to do a lot of pages until I am finished. I used plain paper (not ruled or anything) to write down everything.
After that, it was time for dinner. I ate rice with red meat and white beans in tomato sauce (I now realize what a coincidence it was that I ate beans in tomato sauce two times in the same video, because I don’t eat this a lot). After eating, I went back to my room to post a new post on my Instagram and to check my new text messages. It took about 15 minutes and then I was ready to study for just one more hour.
I really wanted to get that motivating feeling when you studied super hard and you just feel really good about yourself. Do you know what I am talking about? So, I grabbed my books one more time and studied super hard. I filmed with my phone so I wouldn’t be distracted by my phone.
Around 8 in the evening, it was time for me to put away my books. I checked my website and blog, and then I wanted to relax so I listened to the new release of the Weeknd. I love the Weeknd, it’s one of my favorite artists and I also loved his new songs! I had to do the dishes too, which is something I don’t like but have to do every night with my sisters.
I made some tea for myself while I was in the kitchen and drank it upstairs whilst checking my phone. The only thing I did after that was watch Netflix (Gossip Girl, woohoo!).
