A Journey to Success
I've been pondering about the choices I have made. The challenges that I’ve faced, the support I’ve received... Altogether, a lot of thinking.
I chose to become a dentist at a very young age and been developing a strong stick-to-it-iveness. And all due to hard work, perseverance, great colleagues, professors and lectors, and willingness to give up some fun in the name of studies and hopefully a greater future, I am about to graduate my studies at an almost perfect score.
Find a Special Occasion to celebrate, every single day!
You should plan your future for it to be bright. But you also must Carpe Diem some now and then. Otherwise you’ll just get a burnout, and we wouldn’t want that to happen, right? For example, the weather is said to get warmer and snow is to go away, for this reason me and my friends have decided to throw a farewell party to it (after our hard work, that is).
With this simple notion, I can easily fanute a boring day of depressingly gray spring thaw into Dapper AF Gray Day, I’m kidding, I don’t call it that way, but I hope that you understood what I thought. We all have to work hard every day, but we also have to reward ourselves for staying on top of our expectations.
For this glorious moment, I should dress appropriately. It’s still a bit below 0°C, hence I want to stay warm and comfortable. Therefore, the best combination for this occasion (in my opinion) is a warm cotton jacket and comfortable pair of linen pants, complemented by superb suede boots, wearing these timeless classics is never a mistake.
Get busy, stay relaxed!
Sometimes I wish I could stay with my closest friends forever... But as I age it becomes much more noticeable that there are other priorities in my life, like getting educated, getting a well-paid job that doesn’t occupy my whole life etc.
But to achieve such goals I must work hard, study hard. One must grind in his 20s if he wants to chill in his 40s, right?
Don’t forget to catch your breath!
Nevertheless, I am still a human – a social being. And being one does require some time-off from work/studies. And what better way to spend it than with your friends?
So, whenever an opportunity rises to meet with my BFFs I plan our little getaway from the daily stress of our life.
It’s winter, hence I layer myself in monochromic layers. Leather jacket is excellent for keeping warm as it protects me from the unwelcome wind and even so getting my large oversized scarf on top of it all is never a bad idea, wouldn’t want to get sick while I get to the party. Being sick – bad for business.
Taking a holdall bag is helpful as I can take some extra snacks and small surprise gifts for my friends, and I can pack it all in an inconspicuous way.
Keep calm and get back to work!
When the party’s over and your Apple Calendar starts buzzing about getting to work there is no need to start panicking. Monday is just a day, like the rest of days, just like Apocalypse, just another day. Even so if you want to survive it and make it count as a good day, stay positive and classy! Your day will be a success, you just must assure yourself about it!
So, keep calm and have a great week! :)
Spring begins with a whiteout!
If you are a Latvian like me, it would be of no surprise to you. First, it gets warm, then you get raining cats and dogs, and then a blizzard which whiteouts all landscape. Hurray, the spring is here! Nonetheless, one should ever be ready for such a shifty weather. Always make sure that you have some extra layers in your wardrobe so you will never be taken aback by frenzied Mother Nature.
Take a hike from routine!
When the snowstorm has subsided, and calm takes over it’s never a bad idea to go hiking with friends or alone (depending on preference) and enjoy the enthralling charm of winter in the middle of spring. Make sure you take a thermos with hot cocoa and some comfort food (to reward yourself from getting off that warm sofa) inside your backpack.
Comfort, comfort, comfort!
If you indeed decide to go on a hike never forget about layering yourself, it will keep your warmth from going away and you’ll never get cold. The best layer-combo for not freezing over is a cotton shirt, a comfortable hoodie, a warm jacket and a soft, nice cropjacket. And always remember about a cozy hat – a cozy hat is a hiker’s thermostat.
A perfect month to take a romantic getaway from one’s routine to an everchanging urban life like London’s! It was no surprise, of course, that London was quite windy at this time of season transition, and somehow, I forgot to pack for this well-known Londonish weather.
Love at first sight
Walking through the Oxford street, this beauty of a sheepskin jacket came to my field of vision and its attractive force pulled me to it. And as you might guess, I got myself a treat that perfectly protected me from windy weather. Since I also had a trip around the London’s most visited landmarks, I got myself a pair of comfortable sneakers.
Ready to enjoy Vacation!
After getting all the necessary things to unwind I was finally ready to enjoy my vacation to the fullest, visiting museums, parks and other landmarks over the busy urban scenery of London.
