My quest for happiness and my goal of being a better person

Hi. Me Again

Hi :D

So I hope you all had a great Christmas and that you’re as excited about the new year as I am. I always look forward to New Year’s- probably because I love making resolutions. It’s a new year; it’s a fresh start- I just love it all. Continue reading “Hi. Me Again”

Destroying the Universe by Cleaning Your Room

If ever you needed an excuse to not tidy your bedroom, just keep in mind that by doing so, you are contributing to the heat death of the universe. Really.

According to the Second Law of Thermodynamics, entropy (disorder) always increases. In other words, things tend to get more disorganised and chaotic during reactions. For example, cutting down a tree into smaller chunks is increasing disorder. Continue reading “Destroying the Universe by Cleaning Your Room”

HIIT Fitness Challenge: Day 30

Facing Fears Challenge: Fear 5

Fear 5: contact lenses

This might be a bit of weird one, but it wasn’t exactly a fear– more so the thought of touching my own eye made me jumpy. Anyway, I’d wanted to try contacts for ages, but it wasn’t until April 2013 Continue reading “Facing Fears Challenge: Fear 5”

HIIT Fitness Challenge: Day 25

I mean… er… Day 25¬†for me, because I¬†actually did Day 26‘s workout. The reason I swapped the days is because the workout I did this morning was much shorter (less than 7 mins in total including 1 minute rests between rounds with no warm up) and I needed to do it as early as I could as I’m going to be away from home all day after this. I find it harder doing high knees (Day 25’s challenge) before breakfast than I do with planks (Day 26). Continue reading “HIIT Fitness Challenge: Day 25”

Anyways, this challenge is all about facing fears- no matter how big or small. It’s different from the other challenges I’ve done too: there’s no set plan and no time limit.
