Favourite Movies

Favourites

Hey Everyone! Today I wanted to share a list of some of my favourite movies. I just thought it would be fun to share them with you guys; Some of these movies were also squad-dates back in The Netherlands and they give me a lot of memories so watching them again just thinking about them gives me a lot of feels. I also feel like you can really get to know a person by the music they listen to or the movies they watch and just little things like that, so why not share right?

Welcome 2018

Lists

Hi Everyone!

It’s been quite a while since I’ve been active here. I decided to take a small break from the blog since November, i was not only busy at uni but I also wanted to start fresh in 2018 and renew my planning for the blog and spend more time on it as well. I hope you don’t mind the fact that I’ve been gone for like 2 months, but like I said I just wanted to take a break and start fresh!

So having said all of that: HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Yes, now that 2018 is upon us we can start with a fresh and clean slate for this upcoming year. I myself am pretty excited for what’s coming, even though I don’t know what’s coming, I like to keep a positive output into this year. I decided to break down a list of things that I wanted to change for this year, maybe you guys can draw inspiration from these things or actually do the same things, but whatever it’s going to be i’m trying to keep an open mind for the things I put on this list as I know myself that things will change or switch around. 2017 for me personally was such a growth year, I got to do some really amazing things and I created so many memories that I’m so grateful for.

I’m going to try to go into 2018 with that in mind because 2017 taught me a lot and it gave me some amazing moments which give me motivation and positivity for 2018. So without further ado, here comes my list of goals/achievements/aspirations etc..:

#1. I want to learn how to play the piano.

Yes, the piano. I know this is going to be a challenge and a lot of time input but I actually used to play a little bit of piano and I just never stuck to it and don’t know anything anymore. But I love singing and I want to try to play the piano and maybe start writing songs and further my passion I guess.

#2. Become a better planner.

I feel like this is one of those things many of us humans want, it is often difficult but I honestly think that it’s so important to keeping up with your surroundings and keeping your life organized. I also want to be able to create a planning that I can stick to and be honest about planning and procrastinate less. This last one is difficult but again. With good planning comes great responsibility and we can all use some good planning so trying is the motto here.

#3. Travel more.

I have been quite fortunate to be able to travel a lot in my life and I absolutely love going to new places or even places I’ve been before and create memories and experience new things. I have created a bucketlist of places I want to go and not all of these places necessarily are places I can go or want to go to this year but of course with time I will try to visit or fulfill most of the things on my travel-bucketlist.

#4. Workout more.

I actually used to have a tight workout schedule but with changes of moving and trying to get settle in one place it’s been left on the back-burner and so I want to try to restart my training schedule and stick to it. I think with this one of those things where health becomes a priority.

#5. Become a better blogger.

Blogging for me is such a therapeutic thing to do and I want to be able to stick to a better planning schedule as well and create more content that either inspires other people or for entertainment of course.

#6. Read more books.

I am currently reading like 5 books at the same time so that’s good but I just want to read different kind of books and try to spend more time reading than on my phone. Reading for me is a way to relax as well as be more creative (I don’t know if that makes sense lol) it just helps make your brain more active and alive I feel like so yeah.

#7. Create more through photography.

I want to try to express art through photography. I’ve always liked photography but I want to kind of get more into it and try different techniques and creations and etc. I actually have we heart it (just therandomwritersara on there ) and that is something that gives me more inspiration so I kind of want to return the favor and create a source of inspiration for other people.

How to get over a cold quickly; 5 tips

Lists

So I recently got a cold and I actually got over it quickly (I hate colds, I mean nobody likes them, but I really, really hate colds) I decided to give myself a ‘’cold boot camp’’ where I tried to squeeze a cold that usually lasts 5 days for me in 3 or less days. So my ‘’cold boot camp’’ actually worked and I got over my cold within 3 days. It was quite the adventure. Basically what you would do for 5 days of having a cold, I tried to do everything a step ahead. I literally had all the symptoms in 3 days. So here is a list of 5 things that helped me get over my cold quickly.

  1. Magic drink

this tip is actually going to take you on a trip to the past. When I was little and couldn’t sleep or was sick of whatever, my mom used to make me a drink called ‘’magic drink’’ and she never told me the ingredients (I guess it gave me the actual magic thought since it never failed and I would think my mom was a magic fairy). Couple years ago I asked her what the actual ingredients were and she said: ‘’milk, honey and lemon peel’’. So there you go, a recipe for sleeping tight (and not letting the bed bugs bite) and sleeping warm and comfy (it’s all in the milk, boiss). So the milk is for making you sleep better (Idk how that works but ye), the honey for soothing the throat and the lemon for disinfecting. It’s actually really tasty and is an alternative to any other weird tasting, nasty liquid things.

  1. Tissues

If you ain’t got tissues you’ve got issues. Literally. I suggest buying a multi-pack of tissues because they’re going to be your best friend 2.0 during your cold. The trick here is to blow you nose rather than sniffing it back up, I always see people doing this and it doesn’t do anything useful. You’re just moving the bacteria closer to the brains where they tickle you, anyway. As I said. Blowing my nose also helps me being able to sleep better at night as I don’t get a stuffed nose and makes me breathe properly as well as getting my taste buds working again.

  1. Water

Drinking lots of water is basically going to make you pee more (to say it bluntly) and peeing is peeing out the bacteria, now this might be a theory of mine but it could well be true. I feel like it really works because you’re cleaning out your whole system. It’s like getting a cleanse. If you don’t like the taste of plain water, I suggest putting a slice of lemon in it, or some honey. And if you want to be even more extra, make yourself some warm water and honey. Nothing else. Just warm water and honey. This helps soothe the throat and it helps with disinfecting.

  1. Sleep

Now this a tip that you’ve probably heard before and it really doesn’t seem like a big deal. But really, between blowing your nose and drinking tea or water, I usually don’t feel like doing much but hibernate at home and keep warm. So sleep is the only other thing you can do. Getting sleepy sometimes doesn’t come easy but even lying down and watching a series, reading a book or whatever makes you feel better and does something. Basically: rest is important. It works every time, your body rests and does something new every day trying to overcome the cold, try speeding up that process by sleeping and resting.

  1. That syrupy thing we all had as a kid

Now I don’t really know what it’s called but I’m just going to call it syrupy thing. That syrupy thingy is basically for like the last day or so. I usually only cough a lot during the last couple of days. This is going to sound nasty but there’s a lot of slime and bacteria stuck in your lungs from the cold, so the only way to get it out is to cough, by drinking that syrupy thingy actually helps loosen it all up and getting it all out. It might not be tasty, but think about the bacteria :/ that’s not tasty either. So, drink it and cough all you want. just don’t try coughing out your lungs, I don’t suggest it. The syrup is just as magical as the magic drink. It usually works within half an hour and it really makes you breathe better and helps with all the slime as well as the cough.

So that is it for my tips, I hope I helped you in some way! I hope you guys enjoyed today’s post and I hope you all get over your colds quicker and that’ll you’ll all feel better. And I will write you next time!

disclaimer: I ain’t no doctah, but these are tips that worked based on my experience, so don’t ask me to show me my medicine degree because I don’t have one.

Welcome to The Random Writer Sara

Uncategorized

Hey Everyone! As this is my first post I would like to introduce this blog as I would introduce myself. I’m Sara, 18-years-old and totally new to this blogging thing. I thought it would be fun to have a blog for my friends to catch up on little pieces of Sara and her adventures since I just moved abroad to study and I miss them very much. But also because I thought it would be nice to share similar interests with you, the people who read the posts on my blog. So here I am, typing this, wondering if there is an exact match of me with similar interests in the world hoping this blog will be interesting enough for them to get inspired or even to read it just for fun.

3

I should probably explain where I’m planning to go with this blog. I want this blog to be an outlet to discuss my hobbies, travel adventures, and my personal experiences in general as a student abroad. So some of the topics I will be discussing will be: Space and astronomy (I love love love space and all it’s planets and creatures, I own a telescope and love exploring the night skies and stargazing as well as astrophotography), photography (I own a Lomography Diana CMYK camera and I really enjoy experimenting with it and trying different film rolls), books, and my travels, (you will notice a theme with the world maps as I am obsessed with world maps, especially the 17th century ones; oh my are those my faves) the travels will also relate to the fact that I love adventure and love going to different places and experience their culture. I don’t really plan to stick to any particular theme as you can see, my blog will really be one big mashup of all of these themes.

So I think this concludes my first post, yayy. I hope you did enjoy reading this and I hope you are somewhat excited for the things that are going to come, and I guess I will see you next time 🙂
