Oh such beauty you possess

You have me mesmerized,

Take me away from all the stress

And lead astray from everything advised.

Despite the trouble it might bring

I can't help but love it still,

So into the night I spring

And chase the never ending thrill

Cheers, Lacky😘

Good afternoon!

My Monday has started out rather busy. Today I had a group meeting at the uni with one of my groups, so I've been there all morning. Now I am back home relaxing a bit with some tea & watching The Crown. I staretd watching it only last week, but it's so interesting that I honestly couldn't stop! To be honest I'm even sad that I watching so fast, because now I'm already halfway done with season 2 =( #sorrynotsorry

A bit later I'll have to study some more, clean my flat (Brittish influence in my word choices haha) and meet up with a friend of mine for some coffee and possibly dinner. I'm also thinking of writing something special for the blog in a new category "thoughts", but we'll see if I have time today. If not then it will have to wait until tomorrow, because I want to take my time with this & do it properly :P

Anyways, that's my day. Have a lovely Monday as well!

Cheers, Lacky😘

Good Morning!

I know that it's already lunch time for most, but it's Saturday so I got a chance to sleep in :P Now I'm sitting in my favourite coffee place, Coffeelovers, which was also the inspiration behind my blog name💛

Today I need to get some studying done in one of my courses. The course is called "Drugs on the Brain", and we're studying how different types of drugs affect the brain. Interesting right?😝

I was also quite suprised how much more dangerous the legal drugs are, than the illegal ones. If you look at how much alcohol & nicotine affects the user, both from the physiological & social perspective, and others and then compare it with cannabis for example you can really see that cannabis is much less harmful. It's not something you will usually get to know though, not in the papers nor in school, because of the stigma surrounding cannabis. There's also the fact that caffeine is a drug as well, but that goes completely unnoticed as well. Point is, it's a very interesting topic that is quite hard to talk about unless your opinion is "drugs are the worst and should never be used under any circumstances", because of the stigma and misunderstandings around the topic. It's a shame really :/

Just to be clear here, I am not saying that cannabis is safe. It is not. It has lots of harmfull effect on the brain, and even more negative social consequences. (For one it is illegal to obtain & use it in most countries).  What I mean is that alcohol has negative consequences as well, but it's not something that is talked about in our society because it is more culturally acceptable to go out and have a few drinks. Yeah sure, they teach it in schools but most adults drink themselves, even occasionally​ despite teaching that you should not do it.  

I think that I'll probably write another post about it later on, but for now I really have to get back to studying. Have a great Saturday!

When I came back to blogging recently I decided to change the blog's design & content so of course the name should be changed as well to fit with everything. I've thought about many different names and ultimately chose the one it's called right now, which is @/CoffeeLoverLacky (it was @ / lackykpop before)

The Lacky part is the name I use, and CoffeeLover was actually taken from my favourite coffee place here in Holland which is called CoffeeLovers :3

Cheers, Lacky😘

Yesterday was my first official day back in uni after christmas break. There was a group meeting, a practical plus a few things I needed to sort out. All in all it was pretty hectic, but I can honestly say that I've missed it! Of course I LOVE lazy days, but it's just so hard to motivate myself to be productive and actually stop watching netflix when I don't have a specific schedule to follow. Maybe it's just me?

Anyways, so while I was biking around town I happened to cross my favourite bridge. The weather turned a bit sunny then, so I was able to take a few pictures of the view :3

I also made a short video which you can watch on my instagram @coffeeloverlacky 💙

The day ended on a good note as well. I went out for a few drinks with friends, and actually ended up meeting a few new people as well which is always nice😉

Cheers, Lacky😘

Mornings off is something I really enjoy about university life. Because most of our lectures & meetings tend to start around 9 - 11, and the faculty is only 10 minutes away from me I can sleep in quite often. That's quite a big change compared to high school when I had to wake up at 6 am in the morning every weekday and walk around like a zombie the first few hours!

So right now I'm relaxing in bed, drinking some tea & watching a movie :3 Sadly though, I will have to leave my bed soon to meet up with some friends and do an observational study for our research project. I've also almost done writing a post about yesterday, which will come up soon!

Ps. I just bought this new planner and I'm in love with how cute it is <3

Pps, Have a great day!

Cheers, Lacky😘

I can't believe that only a few days ago I was still in Odessa😍 It was my second time being there, and I must say that it's just as nice during the winter that it is during the summer! Maybe a bit colder though haha

Sadly I wasn't taking a lot of pictures, but here are a few at least

Lately I’ve found myself obsessing over tea. This one for example was sooooo tasty😍 It was rasberry tea with honey & mint😋 It was pretty good for my cold as well hehe

Nouw has brought back the #nouw30daychallenge and guess who's joining? ;) Honestly I thought that the challenge would be a pretty good motivation for me to continue writing, and not give it up. So I decided to go for it! And my ambitions for January & February, so up untill the challenge starts and during it, are as following:

1. Try doing something new every day

Before I used to blog mainly about k-pop & k-drama, and while I still love both of those things they are not part of my life as much anymore. Because of this I do not want to blog about them either. I've been trying to find something else to be as passionate about, and I think that if I go and try doing different things I will be able to find just that. It doesn't have to be a huge adventure, (because honestly I'm a huge couch potato :P), but it has got to be something different each day. I believe this will also help me to evolve as a blogger, which is another reason why I want to do this.

2. Change the blog's name & design

This is related to number 1 actually. As I want to do something new, the old has to go. I already have an idea of what I want and it will be up and running in a few days =)

3. Take More Pictures

A picture says more than a 1000 words, right?

4. Create An Instagram For The Blog

3 & 4 are related, as they will motivate each other in a way. Plus, as I use a pseudo name to write this blog it feels weird connectins my personal instagram account with anything blog related.

For now, this is it =) Happy New Year & Have a great start of 2018!

Ps. if you wish to read more about the #nouw30daychallenge (and even better, join it!) you can just click on this link https://nouw.com/nouw30daychallenge =) Good luck!

Cheers, Lacky😘
