Childhood memories

Dear Reader,

Last week I found my old Tamagotchi’s back, I was and am absolutely excited about it! I put in new batteries and when I heard the beeping sound and saw the pixel eggs unhatching, it felt like I was six years old again.

 

It came to my mind how quickly everything has changed, when we were little, and the Tamagochi and PixelChick came out, it was such a big deal, and then the Nintendo DS. but now my little brothers walk around with IPads and Phones, they basically have the world in their hands. I’m not trying to say that that’s bad and that they don’t have a youth, I just want them to know how everything was only ten years ago.

I remember watching Totally Spies and everyone dreamed of having that magical watch, we would play that we had them and then laugh because it seemed so silly, and you know what? Now they exist! How incredible is that! Things aren’t undoable anymore, your imagination can not run wild enough.

On satudray nights we used to go to the video library and hire video’s. My brother and I always fought about which video we should see. I loved those evenings, when we really took the time to sit down and watch a movie with the whole family.

I can remember that we would go to friends and all bring our Nintendo DS so we could chat with eachother one room apart and it was just so amazing. We would play Mario Cart together and play each other’s games. We had a great time. 

Sometimes I miss those moments and things from my youth, but I’m so happy and grateful for everything we have now. We have the world in our hands and you know, the world is everchanging, and that’s amazing, I’m excited for what the future may bring us. 

Love, L.G. ❤

Fave youtubers ATM

Dear Reader,

How are you doing? I’m really good :). I have one and a half week left of my summer break and I kinda feel okay with that. I just miss all my friends and the routine and I just really want to slay my last ever year in high school, hahaha. But….the last few weeks I’ve been binge watching some youtube channels and I really wanted to share them with you!

#1. Conan Gray

Conan is absolutely amazing! I love him so much, hahaha. He posts covers, original songs, baking vids, monthly faves, vlogs, chatty vids and much more. He is very creative and cute and he is really aesthetically pleasing. Idk just please look at his channel, you’ll fall in love with him within 3 seconds. His channel

#2. Hi I’m Mimi

Mimi is also a very cute and lovely youtuber, she kinda reminds me of Conan someway. She’s from Sweden and also posts covers, original songs, chatty vids and all kinds of things. Also very aestheticslly pleasing and amazingly cute. She’s just someone you want to be friends with. Her bubbly personality makes me happy whatever is happening in my life. Her channel

#3. Life with Beans

Life with beans is a channel run by a mom and dad with 6 kids, you hear it right, 6 kids. They make vlogs of their everyday life and it’s very cute and fun to see what’s going on in their lives and to see the little ones grow! A happy and lovely family! their channel

#4. Ruby Granger

Ruby makes videos mostly related to school, reading and studying. I really like how different her videos are from the usual youtube videos and how unique she is. She really dares to be herself and she thinks education is the most important thing there is. She is a huge fan of Hermione Granger from Harry Potter, and I really think that’s way too cute. Every time I watch one of her videos I fell like learning and making school work, which is strange, but great, hahaha. Her channel

soon that’s it for now, if you have the time, I would strongly suggest you checking them out! Thanks for reading!

Love always, Laura Grace

Things that make me happy ATM – thoughts on paper

Dear Reader,

How are you doing? Today was my last schoolday for this year, omggggg I’m soon happy! Next year will be my last year and I can’t wait until I’m done with high school. But first, six weeks of doing nothing, thank god. I have many plans that I’m going to share with you in a next post. But for now I want to share some things that I really liked and enjoyed  the last few weeks, just little things that made life a little nicer ;).

Let’s start off with the beautiful roses that I took way too many pictures off. The sweetest moments are when you see a little bumble bee flying by and landing on their beautiful peddles, soaking up all the nectar and then leaving with pollen all over it’s little body. Roses are so beautiful and look so fragile, while protected by their sharp thorns. A beautiful charm in our garden.

The new album of paramore, Harry Styles and the number Idle town by Conan gray. There are some numbers in the new album from Paramore that are a little too much for me, but the numbers are overall very catchy and happy. Just what I needed to get through the end of this school year :). Harry Styles really got me with his new album, although I never really thought I would’ve. I mean, I wasn’t a “1D hater”, but I didn’t really like them. But Harry, good job, please keep up with the chill-vibed and alternative music! And then Idle town. Oh my goodness it’s so amazing, guys please just listen to the song. I mean, listen to all Conan’s songs, but especially Idle town, I’m obsessed. Conan is my fave youtuber and his music is just  so cute and amazing and wonderful <3.

The next thing I really LOVED was this iced coffee with tapioca balls in it, like some kind of bubble tea. My lovely friend Mikki showed me this little Chinese place in the city centre and I would go every day if I could. I haven’t been so addicted to a certain thing for very long, oops… It’s amazing, really. StarBucks is nothing compared with this.

The next thing that I just can’t get enough from is our kittens! And I just discovered that I didn’t even made a blogpost about them, so guys, a lot of kitten photo’s are coming up! Our lovely cat got preggo and I think I’ve never seen such a cute thing as this. I sit with them the whole day, of course because what else should you do when you have 5 baby cats in your house. They’re just so precious.

The next thing I did a lot and really liked was just thinking about everything I could think of, hahaha. I’ve thought a lot about life and what I want and how I want to be and become. Many people have told me this year and last year that the way I acted and looked was weird and wouldn’t attract boys. And those people (mostly) didn’t mean it in a wrong way, but I just didn’t feel like myself anymore and that it was okay to be myself. And you know what, I’m done with all that. I’m just going to be who I want to be and I’m not going to dress differently of act a certain way because some people find it strange. The people that love me won’t mind and the people who do care they can just look the other way cause I’m not going to change anymore. It wasn’t really that I was insecure, it was more that I thought that it was who I needed to be accepted in new friend groups. But I mean, why would I hang with people that don’t like the real me? So decided that I’m never going to do that ever again. I’m ready to be myself again, and stay that way always.

DSCN2335I also really liked cycling through The Hague a lot and spotting things that I usually just don’t even see. I discovered a street named ‘ghost’, I discovered a few poems written on random walls all over the city, a few pretty places in parks and new streets with beautiful architecture. I just really like finding beauty in the ordinary.

That’s all I could come up with for now, hahah. I’ll write soon again now I have time and inspiration again! Thanks for reading :).

Love always, L.G.

 

 

How to save money || tips & tricks

Dear Reader,

How are you? I’m doing fine, there’s just something that has been going a little downhill the last few weeks/months, and no that’s not my taste in music or my grades, it’s the numbers on my bank account. I’m trying to save money for a new laptop for months now, but I find it so hard to save money and I really want to change that because I’m not only not getting that new laptop, I’m also just spending my money on stupid things that don’t matter. Soooo, here is a blog post to help myself and my fellow money spenders to stop spending your money on things that aren’t important.

#1. Stop spending your money on food.

The first thing I saw when I looked at my spending, was that I spend way too much money on food and drinks. Not only do I go on Mac Donalds dates with my friends a lot, I also just learned about this place that sells the most AMAZING ice coffee that I’ve ever tasted (shoutout to Mikki <3), and I can’t stop buying it. But….. Is it really necessary to buy all this? no, not really. I mean, okay maybe I really need this ice coffee once in a while, but, we can also just bring food and drinks from home and go to the beach in stead of spending our money on bad quality food in a crappy Mac Donalds. So, from now on I’m going to spend as less money as I can on food and just remember to bring food from home.

#2. Just don’t bring money with you all the time, or a specific amount.

When I go out shopping with my friends, I mostly don’t really think about how much I spend, and when I come home from a long day in the city, I look at my bank account and say oooopsss. So, from now on I’m only bringing a certain amount of money with me that I am okay with spending. We often go to the city when we’re done with school, and even though I wasn’t planning on buying things, I often end up buying a lot of stuff I don’t need. So, I think I’m just not going to bring my wallet to school every day, and when I really want something I can just borrow the money from my friends.

#3. Before you buy something, think about if you really need it.

Before it’s too late and you have already purchased your item think about if you really need the item you have in your hands. It helps when you range it from 1-10, if it’s not at least a 8, don’t buy it!! Think about if you really need it and if it’s going to add up to what you already have.

That’s it for now guys. I hope I helped you guys a little, as well as myself… I really have to stop spending so much money, and from this day, I will! (I hope, hahaha).

Thanks for reading and lots of love!

Love always, L.G. ❤
