Sooooooo… I haven’t been writing for over a month and I’m terribly ashamed about it. The truth is, I just couldnt’ get myself to doing it.
There has been a lot going on lately that I could have written about. I bought some new clothes that were worthy of a shoplog, I finally made a decision on my education, I have been celebrating carnival for the first time, I finished another necklace and I found some new hobbies.
First things first. I bought this gorgeous winter coat from H&M last month. Though it’s finally getting a bit warmer and starting to feel like spring outside, I couldn’t forget about it. It was for sale and I will need a warm coat for winter next year again anyway ;) Great excuse to buy it! So here it is:
Then, two weeks ago, I decided to quit school. After my last blogpost about my doubts and struggles, I received a lot of awesome responses from friends and family about following my heart, doing what makes me happy and not worrying about the money. But the person that convinced me most and took away all my doubts was my dad.
“You’re young now. This is the one and only moment to make sure you’re happy. Don’t ever let money get in the way of that.” – Dad.
It was a hard decision, but after I made it, it was a weight off my shoulders. At the moment I’m trying to work as much as possible to make money for the coming years of college. The days I’m not working I’m catching up with some friends, making more and more pretty necklaces and drawing and doodling some stuff.
The weekend after I made my decision, I could celebraten not only that I quit school, but I was celebrating carnival as well. Here in the Netherlands, it’s almost only celebrated in the south of the Netherlands. But since my boyfriend lived in the south of the Netherlands for a long while, it’s something he grew up with. His mom still lives there so we could stay at her place. Though I was worrying sick about carnival (since it was my first time celebrating it), it was an awesome weekend. The idea is that you dress up as crazy as possible and get drunk the whole weekend ;) This is what my buddy and I looked like:
I was exhausted after the three days of partying, but we will centainly go celebrate it again next year.
As I mentioned before I’ve been busy making some more jewellery lately. I’m pretty proud of this one, since it’s so different from the ones I’ve made before. It’s made with a different technique as well, cause I didn’t only use link chains, but used felt, beads, studs and rhinestones as well. This is what it turned out to:
For now, this all I had to tell you guys about. I will definitely be writing more often from now on, so I don’t have to tell about a whole month in one post ;)
