During our cruise to the Greek islands this summer, Travis and I had a day trip to Turkey. Did you know that most of Turkey is actually in Asia? There’s only a small part of Turkey that’s in Europe. I had NO IDEA! Istanbul is split into Europe and Asia by the Bosphorus Strait. I had no idea that this is where part of the Europe/Asia border is until Travis and I went on our day trip to Turkey and we were told that we’re actually in Asia now! I thought this was really cool. Travis didn’t seem to care too much [insert confused emoji here]. Here are some educational maps to show you what I mean:
Anyway, back to our day trip.
Do you ever feel like you don’t want to get out of bed, let alone open your eyes? And then other days, you feel so refreshed and ready to start the day! I’m sure we all have both of these kinds of days. Probably more of the ones where we don’t want to get out of bed. I would rather have more days where I feel refreshed, ready to get the day started and be productive. Do you know how sleep affects productivity?
The Greek islands are what dreams are made of. Travis and I had been dreaming of going to the Greek islands for a few years. We actually planned to go two years ago for our honeymoon, but due to a series of unfortunate events on that side of the world, we had to cancel the trip. We didn’t wait too long until we planned the next trip! This time we wanted to do a Silversea cruise to the Greek islands.
I would say that more than half of the people at my office eat lunch at their desks while working. They might go grab some food and then come back and eat it at their desks. I am one of those people, too. At least, I was one of those people until I started leaving work for lunch. I have worked for this company for almost 5 years so far and just now started to feel the need to take a break in the middle of the day.
Continuing the post-graduation trip to Ireland and Scotland… Read the “Part One” post, if you haven’t already.
Many people ask me which country I liked better. If I had to pick a favorite between Ireland and Scotland, I think I would pick Scotland because it won me over just a little bit. I can’t pinpoint exactly why but my husband and I both feel the same way! Both countries were amazing but if we were to go back, we would go to Scotland.
After graduating from college, I took a trip to Ireland and Scotland with my husband (boyfriend at the time) and his family. Aside from moving across the world from Russia to the U.S., this post-graduation trip was the biggest trip I had ever been on back in 2013. I have never seen a more beautiful countryside or so many castles!
Are you a perfectionist? These weaknesses of a perfectionist (or as I like to call them, the daily struggles) should seem familiar to you! Or maybe you have wondered if you are a perfectionist or been told that you are? Read through these weaknesses or struggles and see if any of them apply to you! Being a perfectionist can be a good and a bad thing. I think it’s good to know if you are one, so you can adjust how you do projects and approach situations based on your normal tendencies.
