All these songs have been on repeat during October and November so I thought I would share them with you. By listening to these songs you definitely get an idea of how big of a mess my Spotify playlist is. It consists of over 160 songs and I listen to almost everything pop-punk, punk-rock, rock, and emo. I'm always looking for new songs to listen to so I follow a lot of artists and playlists on Spotify. Let me know if there are some songs you think I need to check out!
What kind of music do you like? And what are your favourite songs at the moment?
My very photogenic cat, Trille, fortunately agreed to model for me Saturday afternoon. It started snowing Saturday morning and snow kept falling the rest of the day. It was magical (and also so so cold)! Snow is without doubt my favourite thing about winter! Or, er, it's not really winter yet, but it definitely feels that way.
Anyway, today's post is about being a bit stressed and how I usually handle that (very annoying) feeling. I think that this is my first time posting tips, so please feel free to tell me what you think about this post by leaving a comment!
W H Y A M I S T R E S S E D ?
This is the first and most important question to ask yourself. Finding out why you are stressed is essential to avoid more stress in the future. Is it because of too much homework? Bad planning? Procrastination? I have to admit that I'm a bit of a procrastinator, so I'm often stressed out by the fact that I do everything a few moments before I need to be done. But yeah, try to answer this question - I'm sure it will help you in some way.

Guys, what's on the Pink Panther's to-do list?
1. To do
2. To do
3. To do, to do, to do, to do, to dooooo...
Oh my God, I'm so sorry. I'm totally not funny. But seriously, make a to-do list... or 3. Maybe you even need 5? It's totally up to you. I personally love to-do lists and I love the feeling of crossing out the things I am done with. I just love lists in general. I have a note on my phone where I write down literally everything from a word I want to look up to a blog I need to remember to check. Lists are the perfect way to get an overview of your life and they can really help you move on and get things done.

This actually helps a lot more than you think. Or, at least it works for me. I surely can't be the only one who stresses way too much over that little red battery bar and that '10% of battery remaining' message that pops up a bit too often. Charging my phone and my computer always puts my mind at ease.

Social media is horrible when you're stressed. The endless scrolling on Facebook and Instagram really doesn't do you any good. Trust me, I talk from experience. I always waste so much time on Facebook because I can easily scroll down my newsfeed for over an hour and still keep seeing new posts. Annoying. But so addictive.

Is there anything a little bit of exercise can't cure? Probably lots of things. But that's beside the point. My point is that most of the times where I'm stressing over a lot of small things, going for a run really helps me clear my mind. And if it works for me, it could possibly work for you, too! Try it out next time it feels like your head is going to explode - it may help you.

A hot shower is always nice, but a hot shower when you're a bit stressed is even nicer. Same goes for a bath. Need I say more?

Who doesn't love a bit of music? Listening to music is the perfect way to escape a busy everyday. Music makes me feel invincible and relaxed which is why I love to plug in my earphones when I feel stressed. I have a few posts here, where I share some of my favourite songs. Feel free to check them out!

I'm not sure if this tip is helpful at all, but I always enjoy drinking a cup of tea. It really helps me relax and it tastes sooo good. And a cup of tea never hurt anyone. Except for all those times where I try to drink it even though I know it's too hot and I end up burning my tongue. Actually, let's not talk about that.

M Y A N S W E R S T O S O F I E ' S Q U E S T I O N S
1. Is there a story behind the name of your blog?
Not really, no. It's just my first name and my middle name - very creative, I know! When i created my blog in 2012, I absolutely loved pink, so I named my blog "www.pinkistheway.blogspot.com" but after a year or so my 'pink fase' ended and I changed my blog URL to the one I have now.
2. Where did you spend the best vacation of your life?
This is a tough question. I love travelling and I enjoy every moment I spend in another country. It's hard choosing a favourite but I think Cyprus is where I had one of the best vacations ever.
3. If you won the lottery today, what would you spend the money on?
I would love to get laser hair removal so I would definitely get my legs and armpits done, haha! Then I would donate some of the money to charity and finally I would take a shopping trip in New York.
4. What is your greatest strength?
I get along with most people quite easily.
5. What is your greatest weakness?
I have a tendency to avoid conflicts.
6. What do you do in your spare time besides blogging?
I jog, I play tennis, I play the guitar, I draw, I hang out with my friends... And I also love taking pictures!
7. What is your biggest fear?
Spiders, I think. Maybe I should answer something a bit more deep? I don't know. I don't really fear anything at the moment - maybe it's because I'm a teenager?
8. What 3 things would you bring with you to a deserted island?
A boat, my best friend and Netflix (let's just pretend there's WI-FI on a deserted island). In that way we could stay there for a while, watch some Netflix and just sail home whenever we want.
9. If you could "visit" a decade from the past, which one would you visit and why?
Hm, good question. Maybe the 1980's or the 1990's because I would love to see how my parents were when they were teenagers/young adults.
10. What made you start your blog?
My municipality has a lot of free courses ranging from computer game programming to mountain biking that teenagers can join in their spare time. In October 2012 I saw that they offered a blogging course. I had only recently discovered YouTube, Facebook etc. and I didn't know much about blogging, but I knew enough to think that it would be so cool to have my own blog. Long story short, I followed the course for a couple of years and here I am!
M Y Q U E S T I O N S T O T H E B L O G G E R S I H A V E N O M I N A T E D

I feel like this outfit is so me; superheroes, denim, sneakers, and cool jewellery - it doesn't get any better than that. I really wish I didn't have to wear leggings with this outfit, but unfortunately autumn equals to really cold weather. But look at all the beautiful red, orange and brown colours in the forest! The colours are probably my favourite thing about autumn because soon it's winter, and in winter everything is grey and dark (except for when it snows, but the last few years we haven't had much snow here in Denmark). Well, I hope you're all having a great week! I'm in a really busy period at the moment with a lot of homework and many things to do but I am keeping my life in balance and I have actually gotten better at exercising regularly and going for a run two times a week - yes!
What outfit is totally you? And how's your life at the moment?
