Today I’m supposed to share something I struggle with. This is a hard one.

At the moment, I struggle with keeping myself motivated in my studies. It is nearing the summer holidays and I find it hard to find the motivation to finish my last assignments. Especially since one of those assignments is my BA thesis.

I just don’t have the motivation and don’t know where to get it. I will have to finish all the assignments sooner or later but I just somehow don’t have the motivation. I think it is mostly because it’s so close to summer and it has been a tough year of studying and I would love for it to just be over already.

I will just have to find the motivation somewhere. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for that.

I apologize that this was not more deep.

10 Songs That I Love at the Moment

This time I am supposed to list 10 songs that I love at the moment, so here they are with some explanations.

 

1. Just Fishing – Trace Adkins

I love this song because of the feelings behind the song. It reminds me to enjoy the tiny moments that seem unimportant but end up being the most important.

I also created some more feels for myself connected to this song by connecting it to my character in our Doctor Who Role Playing Game. Basically I was creating the back story for the character and was thinking about their relationship with their father (who at the time of the game has been dead for several years) and thought that it would have probably been just like this song. Just spending time together not for a specific purpose but because it’s important. This relationship is the biggest reason my character is so balanced and comes to terms with the tragic death of their father so quickly.

2.The Good Stuff – Kenny Chesney

Another song to remind me about appreciating the small stuff in life. It is not about the successful job or amount of money you have but the people you love and the little moments you share with them. All the memories are worth so much more.

3.Little Bitty – Alan Jackson

I love this song because it resembles my attitude so much. I am small but I don’t care because it’s okay to be teeny. This song makes me feel better when I’m feeling down and brings a smile to my face every time I hear it.

4.Woman Like You – Lee Brice

This song appeals to the closet-romantic in me. Listening to this song makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. It also makes me smile when I listen to it so it is a great song. I also like Lee Brice as a singer so that makes the song even better.

5. This Ain’t Nothin’ – Craig Morgan

This song is a sad one. It makes me cry. But that is good, a song that can awake any emotion in me is worth listening to. The message of the song is also important. I like to think of myself as a person who does not worry over trivial things or things I can do nothing about. This song is a perfect example of that kind of mentality. Why care about losing material things if you have lost something or someone that’s more important.

6. Let Me Go – Christian Kane

I have actually listened to this song for years. I love it and I love Christian Kane. I don’t know if I can say anything else, I just simply love this song.

7. Meet You There – Busted

I think this is the first non-country song on this list. I found this song again just last summer and fell in love with the new version of it they recorded when they got back together. While they didn’t change it all that much, it still has a more mature sound now.

8. Don’t Blink – Kenny Chesney

This is another song to remind me to enjoy the little moments in life. Because life actually does fly by quite fast. It is important to enjoy the small moments that seem insignificant but end up being the most important. Like meeting a new friend or spending a day on the beach or anywhere with good friends or family. Sooner than you think those moments will be just a memory.

9. My Sentimental Friend – Herman’s Hermits

This is an oldie. I love these kinds of bands, Hermans Hermits, Beatles, The Kinks and many others. This song, even though it is a bit sad, usually makes me smile when I listen to it.

10. The World – Brad Paisley

This song makes me smile. It also appeals to the romantic living deep inside me. Let’s take a hypothetical situation. If I had a boyfriend I wish he would feel this way about me. Like I am his whole world. Appeals to the romantic in me but the realistic person I am I know it will not probably be like this.

Yet this is still one of my favorite songs from Brad Paisley.

 

 

 

Five Ways to Win My Heart

1.Be Kind to Animals

I love animals, as people who have followed me for some time should know. A sure fire way to win my heart would be to love animals and be kind to them. Because let’s be real, if I have to choose between Tintti, my beloved cat, and a potential significant other, Tintti wins paws down. I understand that not all people like animals, but for me animals are something that will be a part of my life forever, whether they be mine of my family’s, so no animal-haters for me. Show me that you appreciate those who do not have their own voice and you’re golden.

And my love does not end with pets, I love all animals, so if you think that wolves, sharks or any other animals should have no right to live where we live, then you can say goodbye to the hopes of ever getting my affections.

2.Buy Me the Correct Kind of Books

I love reading and a surefire way to win my affections would be to buy me a book I like. Not even my family members buy me books without asking me first. I would love nothing more than for someone to know me so well that they did not need to ask me what book I would like. Or at least listen to me prattling about my favorite books or book series enough to know which books I have and don’t have and be able to buy me some that I am missing.

So, a way to this girls heart is through books.

3. Play an instrument

I can not play any instruments so I appreciate the time and effort it takes to learn to play something. While this is not a requirement for a significant other for me, it is a huge plus. Any instrument is fine and I would love to hear them play.

To be honest, this probably has its roots in my childhood and one of my favorite tv-shows, Digimon. My favorite character was Yamato, who played the harmonica. This created for me the ultimate fascination for people who can play instruments ans I have always found people who can play something attractive and interesting.

4. Not To Tie Me Down

I am a free spirit. I love doing things at the spur of the moment. I would love to travel a lot in the future. What I want is a person who understands this and does not try to tie me down to one place. Best would be if they would love to travel with me, but if they don’t I would hope that they loved me enough to let me travel as much as I want to. Besides, I have grown used to the fact that I can come and go as I please, so I would never ask for permission to do so.

5. Understand That Being A Nerd Is A Huge Part Of My Life

I am not ashamed to admit that I am a huge nerd. It is a part of me so why should I? If you can’t understand that, then you ain’t worth my attention. I may spend a whole day watching my favorite shows or playing board games with friends. My friends and I may even have the bright idea of having a 24-hour Harry Potter marathon just for the hell of it. This is a part of who I am and if you can’t live with it, you don’t deserve to be in my life, much less be loved by me.

Neither do I tolerate the fact that you judge my nerd-friends and me because we are not afraid of showing who we are. So, if you can’t not judge us, you ain’t welcome.

On the other hand, if you love me for the nerd that I am, you are golden. I will appreciate all the things that make you you, so I would hope you would do the same.
