Hey everyone! Look at me, I’m right on time with this ‘Life Lately’ post! Exams are over so that means I have a lot of time to spare which I’m grateful for. I took a break from blogging because I felt so empty after exams. Do you know the feeling? You still want to do something but it’s hard to push yourself. I thought it was a good idea to let it be and pick up writing when I felt like it, so today I woke up early with tons of motivation and inspiration to blog!
Summer is finally here! I love the warm weather (we’re currently dealing with a heat wave over here in Belgium, but I’m not complaining). My exams were great except for social law. That’s a big course I’ll have to retake in August. Other than that I’m very pleased with my results. Now it’s time for fuuun! I have so many great things planned for summer. The 8th of July we’re leaving for Portugal. We’re going back to last year’s place so I know what to expect (and it makes me even more excited!).
In June I ran the Midzomernachtrun in Ghent: it was the first runner’s event on my own. Personally I don’t mind running alone. I noticed that a lot of people still talk during their run and that’s impossible for me because during a run I’m in a constant battle with my mind. Sometimes I really think: how can you talk? How?? I finished 10K in 1 hour and 7 minutes which is not great (my fastest 10K I ever ran was 50 minutes) but keep in mind that I had just finished exams two days earlier. I was sleepy and hadn’t been running for over 5 weeks. I was so happy when I reached the finish but I was in a lot of pain because of the severe cramps in my legs. I should have trained but I had exams to study ;)
Other than finding back my running routine, I also love lettering. It makes me so peaceful. I look up nice quotes and sayings on Google and just start. I’m already seeing progress and it makes me happy! For more examples of my lettering, please check my Instagram.
That’s a wrap! I hope you have an awesome summer! What are your plans?
