:: MY MIND IS HARDLY EVER A QUIET PLACE ::




Life can be pretty challenging sometimes, but that`s ok, cuz otherwise it would just be boring. Right? 
Anyhow, lately my schedule is more or less the same - drive - work - drive - sleep. Haha, nothing really interesting, I know! What about you guys, who`ll share the highlights of the last week with me? Oh, and yet again, I`m sick. My imune system must be low, cuz I haven`t been sick this much for many years.. maybe I should drink more water. :) 

Hm, so I was thinking to share some thoughts with you .. 

I don`t know if I ever told you that I really like to watch people and by that, I don`t mean anything creepy lol. Just to see, how they react to something, how they walk, get happy when they see a dog or a kitten (like me for example), enjoy nature, get frustrated with something or whatever.... and then in my head I make a story and I always wonder If it`s a correct one or at least if there is one small piece that fits right there into it. I don`t really know why I felt I need to share this with you, just did. 
At my work most of the time I deal with people that are not particulary kind to me, so I think I became quite good with handling people with troubled nature.  I`ve got skills, yo! :) 

Another thing I wanted to talk are shared rides. I`ve been using them a lot lately and noticed that times have changed since I was a student. A couple of years ago, we just had hitchhiking, which was fun, but a bit risky (still the same though) and then shared rides have appeared. It was not for free anymore, but you had a guarantee that someone will pick you up at the time you wanted to + you had a phone number and a name, which definitely was/is a plus. 
Ok, what I wanted to say is that back than we were in a car talking & joking and rides were a way to meet cool & uncool people. I`m a people person and I always love to meet new folks. I`ve made quite some friends and great parties through shared rides, all very spontaniously and that`s what I love about it. 
Today, we`re all so used to it, that it almost feels like taking a bus. It`s normal, I think natural already. I just miss those old times, cuz even though I`m also a tech nerd and have my phone constantly in my hands, I put it away during the ride, which I`ve noticed it`s not really usual. I had a couple of rides now (full car), 3 people on their phone for 45min, not saying a word. Well, that was just weird and I can`t approve it, sorry. 
I decided that when I drive, people will just have to respect my rules, which mean that they`ll talk. If not, well nothing really.. I`ll just put music super loud, so I`ll have at least some fun from the ride. :) Do you have any experience with shared rides? Do you use them? 

+ I`m deciding on a new travel destionation. Where do you think it should be? Come on, bring it on, I want as much suggestions as rain drops on my window right now (it is raining, so there are a lot of them, no worries). :)

btw, photos are from the last week, when I had some errands in the city center and my camera was with me. I was in a hurry, so this is all I got. 

ha, another thing.. did you ever had this moment when you`ve met someone and it felt like you know them for ages? ok, I had that a couple of times already and it`s really cool, but this time it`s different, kind of weird, cuz I really feel good around this person + it seems like we have so many things in common. Honestly, it confuses me. A lot.
WEKEED.

Have a great weekend, spend it just like you would wanted to! Be a boss! :) 
xo, m.

:: HAPPY |hiking| FEET ::





On Friday we went hiking. It was a beautiful sunny day, the temperature was just right and the views were spectacular. Oh, nature, I love you so much.  
How was your weekend? Did you spend it outside or did you cozy up on your couch with a book in your hand or a movie marathon maybe? ;)

:: SO, THIS HAS HAPPENED IN 2014 ::


JANUARY
An ordinary busy start of the year. Nothing special happened, we went to Open houses, made some dinners for friends, baked banana bread and tried not to freeze while Winter was kicking in.


FEBRUARY
Had some great breakfasts, slowly start planning our trip in April, been sick for 10 days and after I went for a couple of runs around Savinja (river in my hometown). The views there can be quite spectacular. It still my favourite running path.


MARCH
Again, some dinners, runs, breakfasts, work and the usual. Oh, and spring started to show off.


APRIL
April is fun when it`s not too rainy. Well, I didn`t care much since we went to Mexico in the other half of the month. :)


MAY
Enjoying the sun, beach and coctails. Our trip ended on 15th of may and then I went to Barcelona for a reunion with my erasmus crew <3 

JUNE
Summer. A lot of work. A lot of runs. A lot of food. :)


JULY
Some great hiking trips, trainings and lunch with good friends that visited Slovenia for a couple of hours.
AUGUST
Weekend in Croatia. Hiking trip. Weekend in Berlin (had the best party for my b-day, danced off the night). Some great moments at the lake. It was a good month!
SEPTEMBER
A great concert. Coffe and day in the city with Vesna. 10k race (I was lucky and won the entry fee)



 OCTOBER
It was the toughest month in a long time. Jaka was in hospital. We were cleaning and packing cuz we were moving to Ljubljana with 1st of November. Our society organised first event, which was great. All together, pretty stressful.  


 NOVEMBER
We moved. I went to Berlin for a weekend reunion with erasmus crew (we love to see each other and we do it always in a different country. One of my favourite things in life.) 



DECEMBER
Winter kicked in and we finally have snow. We did some great hiking trips. Work was crazy. I was sick again and that`s it, more or less. A short recap of 2014. It was a fun but tough year. I hope 2015 will be a bit nicer to me. Anyhow, challenges are always there, waiting for us, to pick them up. So, bring it on baby. :)




I wish you all a great start of a new year, even though I dont really believe in it. You don`t need to wait for the 1st of January to start something different/fresh/new .. right? ;)

Oh, and btw .. THANK YOU for coming back and "list" through my pages.  <3
