How to get your shit together and learn to actually be an adult

  how to be an adult

This past year I’ve changed a lot. In a good way if I do say so myself.  I’ve learned how to calm down and be way more rational. So basically I got my shit together.

Not rushing

Do you know those times when you are trying to put on your shoos but it’s just not happening? Chances are you are in such a rush you are not focust. This used to happen to me all the time.

I always try to stay calm even if I am late to thing. There’s no need to make yourself crazy and get that unnecessary adrenalin rush. Instead I just stay calm and think about what I need to do. Trust me this takes less time.

Listening to people

I love being right. But recently I’ve learned that everyone has something relevant to say. Don’t ever look down on people. I learn so much form listening to others, you would be surprised to hear the knowledge people have.

The other day my little brother taught me how to send snapchat videos to Instagram. That’s just an example of one of the things I would not have known if I didn’t listen.

Existentialism

You know I am going to bring up philosophy any time I can. But this is something that truly helped me grow as a person.

You are in charge of your own being and that’s so powerful. If I am not happy with something or in a bad mood I just sit down and think about it. At the end of  the day I am making the unconscious decision to have a bad day. So I can change it just by using my thoughts.

It might seem odd to you but I would tell everyone to take a philosophy class or read a book. But if that isn’t really your cup of tea or you just don’t have the time. Here is a free youtube serie you can watch and learn about the world around you.

Have fun

This is one thing we all forget to do once in a while. I realised I don’t need to be productive and working every minute of the day. Sometimes it’s enough to just sit and relax. There’s really nothing wrong with that. How to be an adult is relative guys. Just be happy when doing it.

Blogger Advice: taking pictures and photography tips

Blogger advice

Blog photography is a job on it’s own and man have I had a hard time learning. I still to this day am so bad at taking pictures in my own opinion. I feel like it’s a hard struggle, and we have a lot of competition these days.

Stock photo’s

You can get free picots online. I found an article about where you can get them a couple of days ago here. Personally I try not to use these pictures. Even if they are better quality then mine most of the time. I feel like I want to bring content as original as possible.

And I am so sorry this part of my blog doesn’t have pictures. I will be taking those this weekend. This diary thing wasn’t really planed btw.

If you are all about the writing and not really into photography I think it’s fine to use these sites. I don’t see any problem with using pictures as long as you give credit.

How I take my pictures

I could write a full post about this if you want me to but let me just give you some tips. The internet is full of information and I love google. It has been my photography teacher for the past year. Don’t blame google I am a slow learner haha.

BTW I use an iPhone 7 plus for all my pictures, yes I should get a camera…

Anyway I take 2 types of blog photos

Outfit shots

When taking outfit shots, know you angles! I know I sound like a Kardashian but it works I swear. I know exactly how I should be posing. It does help that I am a model, not going to lie but before I learned to pose by watching bloggers. Follow the big accounts on instagram and you will learn. I promise!

Flatlay

If you have been hanging around for some time you know how I feel about flatlay’s I even wrote a full post about them here.

If this post was helpful pleas tell me and don’t forget to comment. Aka don’t be a stranger 🙂
