So it has been a loooooong time since I've written here last. But I felt like doing again today and .... well, just why not. I feel like I have lost my motivation and inspiration, and I need to find it again:)

Today will only be a short note.  I have to get back to writing a University paper.

Anyways, I was updating my inspiration-/to-do-board in the bedroom, and I decided to use one of the techniques for being more productive, which I read about 2-3 years ago. What you do is  you write down numbers from 1 to 365 (or 366 for a leap year) on a sheet of paper, where each number represents one day of the year. And than every morning you cross out numbers one by one. This way you can actually see how quickly days are ending and that even though it is only the beginning of the year and it feels like you still have a lot of time, you actually don't. And there is also one funny thing I have noticed: when I  just started to write the numbers down, I felt relaxed, I still have a lot of paper left, it will all fit in. But as I was coming to the number 200 I started to worry that it won't, so I began to squeeze them in. And I think that it also represents how I'm used to spending the years - in the beginning I think "It's only January, I still have a lot of time left to do the things I want to", but then suddenly you wake up and realize that half of the year is already gone and you haven't yet started to act on your dreams and goals. And than you either rush to have them done, or you forget about them at all. I do not want this year to be like that, so I hope this little technique will help me to start acting and doing staff.

And here is a piece of my inspiration board:
