Weary weekdays

It’s the season to be jolly, but as someone who’ve diagnosed herself with SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) the gloomy weather brings me down. There are a couple of things to brighten my mood little by little as I try to survive the winter months.

  1. Friends, family and loved ones. Especially good paired with a glass of red wine.
  2. The biggest, coziest knit sweaters imaginable to people(see proof above)
  3. Tea. Lots and lots of tea. Also blankets and lazy mornings.

My personal life is following routine. One day to the next. And the next. And the next. Getting up at 6 am, by my desk around 8, work until 5 pm, and then home to sluggishly prepare dinner. Repeat. It’s like one never ending personal version of Freaky Friday – the same day just with slight variations.

Having said that I want to make it perfectly clear that I’m happy. I get to write. I get to go to work at a magazine I’ve always admired. I’m given challenging assignments, and it’s pushing me to be better.

I just wish it didn’t have to end in a month.

Hey! It's me, the journalist wannabe who're most often fondly referred to as "adrokable". If you were wondering I'm currently in my last year of a journalism degree at Stockholm University and work part time for the Swedish fashion magazine Damernas Värld.
