Happy Friday friends! It’s time for another five for Friday post and today I’ve decided to mix it up by using my final point to share some of the things I’ve loved/loled at this week. It’s way too hot today for me to think of some clever and witty things to say here, so I urge you to please see the next point and then you will understand.
I’m literally melting
I’m currently sat in a towel after a cold shower, counting my lucky stars that I don’t have any teaching work today because that means I can hide out inside and avoid the scorching heat as much as possible. It’s already 28°C (82°F) in Frankfurt and according to Google, the weather is planning on going as high as 37°C (98°F) today. Apparently Germany isn’t dicking around when it comes to summer this year.
Selling our stuff
Dan and I decided a long time ago that we would be selling most of our belongings in Frankfurt when we leave. This is partly due to the fact that we are moving into furnished accommodation in London come September, but also because we have acquired a lot of crap in order to fill our apartment here. For the longest time we lived a minimalistic lifestyle, but we have been guilty of letting that slide in the last 6 months because our apartment here could accommodate for it. So now we are in the process of selling old laptops, the TV, kitchenware, cheap Ikea furniture and anything else that is not a necessity.
When we were taking photos of all of our crap at 11pm at night to list on Facebook selling groups and eBay, I was not happy. When stupid people on Facebook sales groups (sorry guys, but you know exactly the type I mean) were asking ridiculous questions and wasting my time, I was not happy. However, now that the extra money is rolling in from eBay sales, I’m happy.
Here’s a valuable piece of advice that I wish I had know sooner; you’ll find less morons on eBay.
Blogilates June Calendar
I officially completed my first Blogilates calendar this month, after completing the Blogilates Beginner’s Calendar 2.0 in April and sporadically doing the May calendar when I wasn’t travelling. It feels awesome to have completed another workout calendar by Cassey and most importantly, I am noticing some awesome changes to my shape. I’ll admit that I’ve not been watching what I am eating too much because we eat a pretty balanced diet at home anyway, and I am more interested in gaining muscle than actually losing any weight, but I’ve noticed some definition developing which is so motivational right now!
I’m hoping to complete July’s calendar too, although I may have a few disruptions with moving (guys, it’s less than two weeks now!) and my sister’s wedding, but some exercise is better than none, right?
Getting the chop…?
I have spent the last 3 years growing my hair in the hopes of having goddess-like hair, which so far hasn’t made an appearance and I’m thinking probably isn’t ever going to. My hair is currently half way down my back and all I do with it is wear it loose and natural, or shove it up in a bun because it’s pissing me off/making me too hot. As much as I don’t want a hairstyle that takes me hours to prepare in the morning, I’m thinking I could have something with a little more ‘umph’ to it.
I’m struggling because when I was heavier, shorter hair styles drew attention to my chubby cheeks and I hated it, however when I lost weight one of the first things to change was my face shape (it became thinner and more oval-like), so I’m wondering if I can pull off a long bob? Or am I crazy and just considering this because it’s so bloody hot right now?!
Around the web
Dolphin Dives onto Boat, Breaks Woman’s Ankles, Punches Another in the Face – I rarely read things that make me real life LOL, but this article did. I think the title says it all.
Michelle Obama Lifting Phone Ban On The White House Tours – I’m a bit late to the party on how awesome Michelle Obama is, but one of my students is basically obsessed with her (talks constantly about her book, uses her for every character description and just generally won’t shut up about her) and so I had a bit of an eye opener. She is, like, the perfect First Lady.
Guys Try Leggings For The First Time – I’ve watched this a few times now and I chuckle every time. I love the way one guy wiggles into the leggings because it’s SO accurate. We all know the ‘leggings wiggle’.
This Is Why I Unfollowed You On Instagram (And Why You Shouldn’t Care) A spot on post from Amber which felt very timely considering I had a blogger pulling some weird shit with me this week after I unfollowed them on Instagram. Guys, it’s just the internet.
How To Afford Being A Student In London – Brendan’s guide has answered so many of my questions about London and given us some truly invaluable tips for first year, particularly when we are so unsure of how things will actually be until we arrive.
So, how was your week?
