Can the sun please remember that Croatia exists and come hang out with us for a little bit? The weather this week has been shitty and cloudy. There was sun, but some of us (ME) are working in the morning and since Croatia does that dumbass clock-changing daylight saving thing, by the time I actually can go for a walk the sun is gone(if there was any that day). I need to buy some vitamin D, I am getting depressed.
Let me talk about food because that’s not something I have been talking about too much lately haha. I am getting obsessed with making food but that’s what happens to me when I have a new project I like. The same with this blog and The Poetry Bar, it just consumes my thoughts.
Aren’t these like just some beautiful pancakes. Also, I will probably not go home until Christmas Eve and I am sad about that so I bought 4 Christmas decorations to make myself feel better. This picture was possible because I bought a camera I cannot afford after breaking the lens on my phone camera, ordering a new one 3 times and all three of those people scammed me and sent me some shitty plastic.
I decided to go for the American style pancakes today because I can use this blueberry “sauce” or spread or whatever on them. In Croatia we eat crepes and feel free to read that word in a terrible French accent like I usually do. Or better yet, try reading the Croatian word for pancakes/crepes: Palačinke. If there’s a square or some weird sign in the word is because your device maybe does not recognize this letter of the Croatian alphabet which is like a C but with a small V on top of it. I know that from this very professional description, you can already tell I studied languages and am actually, according to my bacc. diploma, a philologist. #education
So anyways what I was actually trying to say is that it’s easier to use a healthy homemade sauce on american pancakes which is why I made them. If I had done crepes I would go and buy Nutella, Linolada, Kras Express (I know you don’t know these last two things, but it’s for like the 4 Croatian people who actually read my blog – I see you!) because that’s what I want to eat my palačinke with. It’s how my grandma used to make them for me and even though I am trying not to eat heavily processed food full of sugar – I am not giving up on some things. No.
These random posts about my boring life are because I lack the creativity to write poetry lately. I think it’s because, despite being a bit down because of the pandemic, I am overall happy in my life. I still have to remind myself of all of the good things that I have to keep that feeling of happiness, but I am feeling good lately. Like my family is healthy, for the first time in my life I am in a relationship and happy about it (we celebrated our 6 months recently, still can’t believe it), I have a job and I am also healthy and I am making better choices in life for myself. So yeah, I am trying to keep this happiness and not let my mind get the best of me because that does happen sometimes. I start to overthink or I just start imagining negative things in my head and I get really anxious and sad. I know there are a lot of people who go through the same thing. Just want to let you know that we are in this together.
Since I started to do these daily posts and update you on the fact that my life consists of working and cooking, I was actually thinking about filming vlogs and uploading them to my Youtube, but I don’t think it would be very fun to watch because my life is just like: get up, spend 8h working from home, cook and eat, force yourself to walk and exercise for a bit, read or watch something and go to bed. But I am still considering that idea of filming how boring and random my life is. Let me know what you think down in the comments.
As always, let me know what you have been up to, how are you spending your weekend, what’s been happening?
I am going to go and watch Netflix today because I am so full that I need to rest for a bit. Just to let you know I am a little pig, this stack of pancakes was dessert. I had a full meal before that – a couscous salad with chicken and a bunch of veggies. I can’t breathe. By the way, let me know in the comments if you have some TV show suggestions for me. I have Netflix and HBO GO so those are the two platforms to choose from. Movies are welcomed as well.
Sending love and positive vibes,
