My experience with social media detox

I have been struggling with how much social media consumes my life lately. I have been feeling extremely stressed and overwhelmed with university and the amout of work and studying I have to do and sometimes the lack of motivation – and my way of coping was social media, or TikTok to be more specific. One week ago, I decided to detox and not spend any time on TikTok and here are the effects I’ve noticed so far and what helped me to overcome the difficulties when you think “Now’s a good time to watch TikToks”.

New books I want to read in 2022 – Listed!

I didn’t have much time to read since I’ve started studying because studying Law involves a lot of reading and then after a long day, I often don’t have time and so instead of reading, I just relax in bed and watch Netflix (a very bad habit). However, I was bought a couple of books and have also been gifted some and I really want to read all of them over the course of 2022. Here’s the list!

Non-fiction books that I must read in 2021 – Listed!

Not that I have been the perfect example of sticking to a TBR, I have had a list in my head and have been wanting to check these specific non-fiction books off my list for a while. I have been reading and enjoying more and more non-fiction books, especially political subjects, recently and just find them a great way to broaden my horizon and freshen up on a little knowledge 🙂 – so here’s a list of all the non-fiction must reads for me for the year to come!

Walking through Vienna – and its bookshops!

I haven’t had the time to write a proper entry since I’ve been away for the past week! Me and my parents went hiking in Tyrol and now me and my dad are spending the next two weeks at my grandma’s house in Vienna: and today was our first full day full of adventures!

Life and reading update, summer plans!

It’s been quite a while, I have had no time to write, post or read any real book over the past days, so I guess here we are: me lying in bed on the evening before my last school day and finally managing to write something as it’s my only free evening. What you’re in for: everything that’s going on in my life, what I’m reading/will read over summer, and my overall plans for August and the start of September (also in regard of my senior year)!

Bookstores + Libraries I’d love to visit – Listed!

All I wanted to do this morning is go to a great, maybe cozy bookstore and just spend hours in there going through thousands of books and then maybe end up buying one. But since I’m home and have been at my local bookstore millions of times, I can’t do that. So what’s better than to write a Listed! post with all the amazing bookstores and libraries I want to visit, whether I’ve only heard of them or actually discovered them already!

Books I really want to read during summer break – Listed!

I feel like it’s been forever since I wrote a Listed! post, so here we are! I have a very very detailed and thought-through book list in mind for the books I want to read this summer break and so I hope this post will help me realize this. Because – I can see it coming already: I thoroughly plan what to read and bring on my summer break and I never end up reading the books I brought, but instead discover new amazing books, instantly buy them and never read the ones on my TBR. So maybe, just maybe, this post will hype up the books I want to read so that I can, for once, stick to my plans. Plus, I’m just about to head to the bookstore to buy one or two books I’m planning to read during the first vacay, so there will be no weaseling out for them!

What quarantine has taught me, life update + Harry Potter all the way!

This is a kind of personal, cooking and bookish post all at once. I didn’t have a lot of time to catch up on reading the past few weeks (while other people have all the time in the world at home, going back to school is proving itself to be kind of stressful!) and so I really wanted to share some of my personal thoughts regarding the current situation and what I made of the past few months and also experienced!
