10 Things That Make Me Happy Right Now

Well hello hello there, my lovely online friends! It sure has been a while since I managed to get a post up that wasn’t a photo diary or video. My sincere apologies. The summer holiday period is always madness in my life and even though I feel like I’m coping with it better and better every year, there’s still room for improvement. The thing is, in the weeks leading up to scouting summer camps and my trip to Slovakia to visit my family, I need to pre-film, edit and schedule over a month’s worth of videos, if I want videos to go up at the same frequency as usual while I’m away. Which I do, of course. This does mean I’m producing videos at two/three times the usual rate. All my creativity and content ideas end up going into this enormous amount of videos and I find myself devoid of time, energy and creativity for making enough blog posts too. As my YouTube channel is always my top priority, I make sure I have all my videos taken care of first, before I worry about blog posts. And so it sometimes happens that there are none. I’m very sorry but I can guarantee you this will pick up after the summer holiday, as it always does 🙂 Thank you for your patience!

Over the past few years, I’ve gotten to know myself better than ever before. I can now confidently say that I’m a person who enjoys having a routine, and is happiest at home. Being away from home and away from my regular schedule like I am during the summer holiday is stressful enough for me (*cough* travel anxiety *cough*) without the pressure of scheduling in enough content. I’m also the type of person who, when stressed, tends to whine and complain about it. Today, I’m taking a break from that. I’m taking a step back, away from complaining, because honestly I have nothing to complain about whatsoever and the negative is all in my head. I’m going to list ten things that make me happy right now. Because apart from a little bit of unsettlement and pressure, the summer also brings many wonderful things that I wouldn’t want to miss. Let’s go!

The Forgotten Week | Loepsie’s Life

Happy Monday my lovely readers! As I’m typing this, it’s pouring rain outside and I can only think about Robbert and the scout kids who are off on summer camp in this horrible weather, poor things. I’ll get my fair share of rain this week as well, as I’m going out to cub camp to help a few days. At least I’ll be excused from sleeping in a tent, though 🙂

Anyways, last week was chaos inside my head, and I completely forgot to take photos most days. Then again, I did spend most days just sitting inside and working or doing whatever I was doing (I can’t even remember some days at all), so you won’t miss much. Let’s take a look at the photos I did take!
