Sorry, still not in the mood to post recipes. All I want to do right now is stay in bed, eat chocolate and watch Netflix. But since I don’t think my manager will aprove I’ll just go to bed early after eating a chocolate cupcake with extra chocolate.

I have a few more posts this week, because this week is my 1-year of blogging celebration, so I have two posts about that lined up. So if you excuse me I’m going to watch G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra (I love sexy men in uniform) and you can read this months ‘achievements’ on my ’30 things when I’m 30′-project

Done: 9/30

  1. Save at least a 1000 euro’s

Is the 1000 euro’s on my actuall savingsaccount right now? No, but I saved so much over the last few months that I actually achieved this. Next goal: 2000 euro’s

  1. Pay back my mom

 I love my mom!! Since I had some trouble with my car my mom decided to give both my brother and me a certain amount of money, which just so happens to be about half of what I owned her. I just had to give the amount my brother was going to get to my brother. I’m super happy about this, since this means I can start saving for a new car, because I know I’m going to need to replace this in about a year or 2-3.

  1. Take my parents out for dinner at a ‘fancy’ restaurant
  2. Decorate my balcony 

Still on-going, but hey, it’s autumn/winter now, who’s gonna decorate outside during the ‘coldest’ period of the year.

  1. Finish my bedroom

I have bought some stuff, picked out the paint I want (well, for one wall that is). Now I need to convince my parents that they’ll come over and help me out. Because there is no way that I can do this on my own.

Sneak peak on one item

  1. Visit a friend in Ireland
  2. Start and finish a TV-show
  3. Attent a full reenactment event

Not done, but I signed myself up for the event that will be taking place in March. Now all I have to do is buy some more fabric for my ‘fighting gear’. EXCITED!!!

  1. Finish a 30-day project
  2. Go to the ‘Efteling’.
  3. Go Raw-food for a week

I’m sort of starting this one by collecting recipes. I really want to do this right, so with all the nutrients and calories I have in my normal diet, since I’m not doing this to lose weight or something. So I’m going to make a meal plan before I’m getting started.

  1. Enter a Viking Run
  2. Do a day of volunteers work

On the company’s intranet I saw a message about something that was getting organized by the company. The company I work is the sponsor of a ‘sundayschool’ in a city nearby. On February 14th the kids of this school will visit our company and I signed myself up to help. Should be fun!!

  1. Dance in the rain

It wasn’t really a dance, more like a little shuffle. But I think it counts… (to this song btw, don’t judge please, this kind of music is a guilty pleasure 😛 )

  1. Unplug for 24 hours

After reading this post, I realised I really need to do this soon.

With everything that’s been going on the last few weeks I’ve been spending a lot of time watching tv-shows, surfing around on the internet and doing ‘brainless’ activity’s. I was overthinking this whole thing to much, about things I was going to do and how I was going to replace the tv/laptop… I should just do it!

  1. Watch all Tim Burton films
  2. Attend at leat 4 viking trainings.

1st training: january 8th, 2016

2nd training: january 22nd, 2016

  1. Buy a lottery ticket

I bought a lottery ticket for New Years eve, well actually I bought half a ticket, because spending 15 euro’s is more then enough.. The jackpot is 30 million euro’s and with my ticket I could win half. I won 5 euro’s. Not worth the money and come to think of it, it doesn’t really fit into my minimalist lifestyle, so I doubt I would do it again.

  1. Do a road trip
  2. Make a recipe book

Still ongoing… But I’m just to busy to finish it. But it’s slowed because my Macbook is broken and everything that should be in the book is on that laptop. I did change the idea about the actual content of the book. Let’s just hope I get my laptop back soon.

  1. Get at least 1 certificate at work

With all that’s been going on at work I’ve made little progress with my ITIL. But I’m nearly halfway through the book. Because of the stuff I’m doing at home I’m also planning to get my PRINCE2 certification. I always loved doing projects, and I think this is something I’m really good at and I might want to do more with in the future.

Although I’m sort of considering this sort of done, because I’ve been learning so much and I’ve been given a chance to do some amazing things.  I’ve been doing some small projects and someone even ‘dumped’ the roll of ‘projectmanager’ for one of those projects. I’m so happy with this job, I’ve only been here for 6 months and I’ve done things I never thought I would or could do. No certificate compensates for that!!! So that’s why I’ve crossed this one out halfway, because it’s not done until it’s really done.

  1. Do a photoshoot
  2. Do a workshop
  3. Read a classic novel

Since I was sick this week and tv/internet gets boring after 2 days I read Pride and Prejudice. For me it’s a classic which I started a few times but never finished it. Now I did!!

  1. Bake 10 different muffin recipes
  1. Finish one year of ‘One Line a Day’

I may not have written every day, but I’ve been writing about every day so far. It actually helps that it’s only one line a day. It makes sure you focus on things you’ve learned or happy stuff that happens instead of going on and on about bad stuff

  1. Get a new tattoo

A few weeks ago I had ‘my boys’ over for dinner. And all of the sudden I got an idea for a tattoo. It’s going to be ‘viking’-themed and it will be ‘hand poked’. At first I planned this for january 23rd, but because of the issues with my car I’ve planned it for April

  1. Make a vegan cheesecake

Vegan cheesecake = done!
