• Five Things Week 20 {skipped 17-19}

    Today mark’s exactly one month since I last did the Five Things post, it’s not surprising I skipped so many. I have mentioned before how I am not that good at sticking to a series, except for Fashion Monday posts. It’s always been a struggle of mine to keep up with blog series but I am working on that. The Five Things Week 20 will try to cover all the things that have happened in the last month. I will indeed keep to the theme of Five Things for each category and also review Five Things week 16.

    Five Things for next week 16

    • Schedule posts for Monday – Saturday. A continuous struggle but I wont give up
    • Attend post grad classes Wednesday – Thursday. Done
    • Travel to Southampton Tuesday – Thursday. Done
    • Collect the car if licence arrives and finally buy car insurance. FailedRead to learn why
    • Consolidate the Budapest itinerary. Done

    Five Great Things to Happen

    • Saturday of week 18, a friend from Japan came to visit for 2 weeks
    • Sunday of week 18, me and said friend traveled to Budapest for a few days.
    • Thursday of week 19, as a group of 7 girls we traveled to Cyprus. Three of us managed to explore 90% of Cyprus
    • Wednesday of week 20, we traveled to London for a night of the town. Also managed to do some tourist things
    • Thursday of week 20, annual leave for April to attend a friend’s wedding got approved. I am excited to see my friend get married and visit family at the same time.

    Five Things that sucked

    • During the girls getaway to Cyprus I realised I prefer to be a solo traveler than traveling in groups. Unnecessary dramas can be avoided and you get to do what you want and not feel guilty about it.
    • Thursday week 20, a friend left for home in Ireland whilst quite possibly suffering from alcohol poisoning.
    • Friday week 20, my friend from Japan left, my home feels so empty now
    • DVLA screwed me over again, so I lost the car {+ car finance} I wanted and now will need to start afresh.
    • Not sleeping for more than 3/4 hours a night for 2 weeks straight kinda screws with you.

    Five Things for next week

    • Start writing the Post Grad assignment due at the end of the month
    • Schedule posts for the new week
    • Start searching for a car and insurance
    • Practice a no spend week, except for food
    • Reduce screen time (apart from work) and turn it into me time.

    Though I can not guarantee I will sleep up again with this series, I am glad to be sharing my Five Things week 20. So many things have happened since week 16 but I have managed to condense it down. I didn’t want to overload the post with unnecessary sharing of information.

      Every time I read your posts like this I always say I’ll do one too! I love that theres a lot of travel surrounding you at the moment! Don’t let travelling in groups put you off though, its safer & theres always going to be ups and downs even if you traveling solo x

      Great idea doing this – you can track what your accomplished and where you went wrong. Good luck with the ‘no spend week’ – harder than it sounds!

      I like travelling solo too. It’s so much easier and no dramas!

      I’m dying to go Cyprus how was it? Good luck with the car x

      I don’t know how I could cope with a no spend week as I have to spend money on food and travel. Good luck though. How was Cyprus? x

      I like the idea of a no spend week, I am not too sure how good I would be at that x
