Boredom & Plans That Won't Work Out

Hey there!

I want to write about something that has been bothering me more and more the past few days.

I'm bored with my life. What I do doesn't fulfill me.
Every time I have had this feeling in the past I have come up with a fun idea to keep me going, but now I'm out of possibilities.
I have ideas, visions of what I want to do, but there are multiple things tying me down. School. Not being old enough. Friends and family. Money shortage. Fear. I want to be able to do things like go to concerts, travel, take amazing photos, have adventures and just make as many memories in adolescence (cool word, huh?) as I possibly can. I want to make the most of my life.
But I feel that I have done everything that is interesting or fun within my doable zone, and now these things bore me. I don't want to take the same pictures with the same people in the same places every day. I want something new, something exciting. I think I am at the age where the things that excited me before are getting boring, and i don't have the means to widen my horizon.
I keep thinking, what can I do that is legal, not too pricey and for teens, but is still going to make my pulse quicken at the very thought of it? I haven't come up with anything yet.

If you can in any way relate, have any tips or just want to share your thoughts on this topic, feel free to comment down below.

Being a Morning Person


I have recently been loving mornings, and I know that a lot of people hate mornings with a passion, but I don’t. Here’s why:
In the mornings I have the feeling that the whole day lies ahead of me, and there are endless possibilities. I am a lot more motivated in the mornings than in the afternoons, where I often find myself binge-watching “Friends”, oops. But this is what I do in the mornings to make sure I will have an amazing day:
I get up (when I don’t have school) at about 8am, sometimes earlier, sometimes later; it depends on my bedtime the night before.
I have quite an obsession with sunrises.
I have a quick shower and get dressed. Then I make myself a healthy and yummy breakfast, such as porridge with fresh fruit, bread with squashed banana, fruit-muesli or, if I want something that needs a bit more preparation but is gloriously satisfying, banana pancakes. I also have a recipe for a quick little breakfast I end up making more and more often, which includes fruit, yoghurt and oats, which I will be posting soon.
When I have had breakfast, out on the terrace in the sun is the best place for that, I will do my teeth and my makeup and get rid of some chores or homework that need to be done.
I also often set aside some time to read, write, go for a walk or just think. Sometimes I will do 20-30 minutes of cardio in the mornings as well.
All these things make my mornings the perfect start to the day and ensure that I feel relaxed and ready to manage anything. I am also trying to fit at least a part of this into my schoolday mornings, so I have more energy during school.

Disclaimer: Of course I don’t do this every morning. Sometimes I sleep till 11 and lie around for hours. But I try to make my mornings like this, so I thought I’d share that with you.

So, are you a morning person? Or did you find any of these things helpful for becoming one? Why don’t you let me know in the comment section below?
If you would like any new blog post of mine to appear in your reading list, please add my blog. You can also share this post on all your social media, and I would highly appreciate that.

Thanks and Byyyeeeeee!
