Time flies! I’ve been in Sydney for about 3,5 months now and I feel like I’m slowly but surely getting everything under control, for however much that is possible for me at least.
Let me give you a quick introduction to me at the moment, feeling adult AF. I’m sitting in the library, as our WiFi at home is dissapointing as always, after visiting the World Press Photo Exhibition and doing some yoga. Even better, this morning I’ve eaten some homemade toast with avo (I know, so Australian) and drank tea with apple cider vinegar. However, I’m very aware that the fact that this day has got me so excited and feeling responsible most probably says something about my day to day living situation.
Of course, being away for a year in Australia and its surrounding countries sounds like a dream, but my impressive travel plans, addiction to shopping, love for a good party and unstoppable appetite have to be paid for one way or another. So I’ve decided to get myself not one, but two jobs (YAY). Meaning that on a day to day basis, I often make 14-16 hour days or find myself working 11 days in a row, working-out, hiking, going out, relaxing and sleeping, if I can fit that in somewhere. Oh, and updating this blog, one of the things that tends to be placed at the bottom of the to do’s. But not today! (You know, productivity and adult-life and such)
But at the end of the day, I cannot complain really. I’ve been eating a lot healthier, haven’t had a dominos $5 pizza deal in weeks and reduced my number of deserts from 5 to just 1-2 a day. My weeks of going out 6 times may be done, but quality over quantity for this matter is probably a must in everybody’s life and regular exercise will probably enlongen my great life, at least according to the internet.
Also, I’ve already seen so much beautiful scenery in and around Sydney, I’ll definitely post more on that later! It keeps amazing me how much there is to see around here. And that’s not all, both of my jobs are actually very nice, it’s a good balance to divide my weekly 50 hours between 2 different venues, so if you ever find yourself in the area; pls don’t hestitate to come visit me in Joseph Hyde or Sokyo.

So how do I juggle all of these activities in just 24hour timeframes? I don’t actually. I’m still as chaotic as ever and usually want to do as much as possible in one day. But as long as I force myself into getting some rest in between and try to enjoy everything I do as much as possible, it keeps me pretty sane.
So stay tuned for more posts about what I actually do around here. And maybe hopefully eventually a proper guide on how to live a healthy and balanced life, if I’ll ever find out.

Howdy and lots of of love!
