spring break thoughts

I can't believe I haven't written a blog post for so long! You know the feeling when you are planning on doing something and then just keep on pushing it further away and never getting it done! Well that's what I felt like before I started writing. So welcome beautiful person on the internet! I hope you enjoy my blog post today, although I am still not sure what exactly I will be writing about. I'm such a good blogger, right?

Anyways, writing helps me feel relaxed and letting my thoughts become words is just the best feeling ever. (so cheesy ik *cringe claudia) When ever I have a million things to do - and am very stressed, I write a to do list. Just ask any of my friends, they know I have a to do list for literally anything! To do lists give me an overview of what I need to do, and make me feel productive once I can tick something off, like I'm not wasting my time as usual. hmmm.

At this point I still don't know where I'm going with this blog post. I am currently at home, enjoying my easter break and the wonderful season of spring.

My family and I were in Vienna the other day. Vienna was wonderful, we visited a museum, ate sushi and vegan ice cream (sooo goood), wandered around the city and did some shopping.

How about this blog post becomes a spring/easter break vlog written version. (with pictures) Is there a name for a vlog but on a blog?....idk, i wonder..

So for spring break my family decided not to go away somewhere, since we will be going to Australia for all of the summer holidays. Which will be a lot of travelling, so this is a holiday where I'm not travelling. Honestly I love it! It's really nice to be able to hang out with friends and just do things you've wanted to do at home, but have never had time to do with all the school stress. All these things don't happen whilst in another country or city. Don't get me wrong - I am obsessed with travelling, but also I appreciate being home and all the things that come with it!

Some of the things I have done so far are spending some lovely days with friends, celebrating my beautiful friends 16th birthday, spring cleaning (ugh i know sooo boring!) and a day trip to Vienna.

The reason we even have this holiday is because of easter. Easter. What exactly does that mean to you? I wonder what the word actually means - let me google that quickly....Old English ēastre ; of Germanic origin and related to German Ostern and east; perhaps from Ēastre, the name of a goddess associated with spring.

name of a goddess associated with spring - what a wonderful meaning! Well easter to me, as a christian is a wonderful holiday because it is the time that we remember Jesus - how he was crucified and then rose to life again. All of this to take away my sins and your sins. So that if we believe we can have life forever with him in heaven. Whilst reading my bible today, I read the book of Matthew - the part that talks about the Easter story. I was reminded how Jesus didn't have to die, it was his choice. Because of his love for all people. How great is my God, that he loves me and you so much that he died for us and rose again. That is what Easter means to me.

On my bucket list (or to do list) for the rest of my holidays are doing some water colour painting, writing another blog post! (hopefully you will enjoy reading x) and reading some more. (maybe one day I will write a blog post about some of my favourite books).

So this post was messy - to do lists, vienna, the meaning of easter, spring break and ...Well I guess you could call this "Claudia's Thoughts In Writing" haha so weird. Whatever, we'll see what normal blog post title I come up with in the end.

I hope you have a lovely easter time with your loved ones, and maybe think about what easter really is about. Eat loads of chocolate eggs - cause it's a great excuse during easter time. Diet starts after easter!

love, claudia x
