preparation for the 10k, & some words of advice

Here’s the tricky part about racing: you can’t do it without practice. Having ended my competitive dancing career almost one year ago, being busy with the start of my university studies, and generally not having any goal to work towards athletically, my shape has gotten out of it. So with just one week to prepare (and still midterms to write!) all I could really do is… run. I’m no personal trainer, but the way I think I can personally prepare best for this race, is to improve a little day by day. I did my first training: 5.6km, about 30% of which I took breaks to walk instead of run. Next up: trying to balance out my speed to be able to run the whole distance of 5.6km.

One of the saddest things to do in early October is to bring a box to your closet, and pack away all the summer wear until May. My box has been standing at the foot of my bed for a week now, as I slowly collectively fill it with open-toe shoes, shorts, and sundresses. One particular item in my closet though, I wasn’t very eager to put away just yet. You guessed it – my white jeans. Continue reading fashion: bringing white jeans into fall

negativity is not for friends

It was last week during a phone conversation that I realized that no one wants you to take your negativity out on them, unless they’re allowed to share their opinion about it. That’s human nature. Listening, and then saying something in return, whether you like it or not. And this made me frustrated. Continue reading negativity is not for friends

fashion: modifying the look of the Parisienne

For anyone who’s into fashion, Parisian fashion, and how you should/shouldn’t look when you travel to Paris, you know that they all say you should fit in as much as possible. You don’t want to stand out as a tourist, they say. Don’t wear bright colours, don’t wear sneakers, don’t do this, don’t do that. Continue reading fashion: modifying the look of the Parisienne
