Getting rid of stage fright

stage fright

For a person, who has performed on stage many times in her life, I often feel nervous before stepping on the stage. Like really nervous, even though I have a background in dancing. The biggest problem for me is talking – even when I have a presentation at college in front of 5 people, I feel more nervous than when I dance in front of a full theater. I think that’s because I’m not used to situations like that and I become really aware of my voice in that moment (which sometimes leads to a shaky voice and too much concentration on the structure of the sentences, which were perfectly fine in the beginning:)). New situations also make me feel nervous. At the beginning of the year, I had my first solo performance in Mademoiselle pole dance studio, and even though the show was opened only for the dancers and almost all of us were performing in groups that night, I hadn’t felt so nervous in a while. But on the other hand, it was something I wanted to do ever since I started pole dancing, and it the end, it didn’t turned out the way I wanted to, but it still turned out good and I got a lot of compliments…so all in all, I was happy I decided to perform and will do more of similar things in the future:).

I decided to write about the stage fright and that nervous feeling because I’ve been stepping out of my comfort zone a lot lately. Life doesn’t last forever and there’s so much things I want to experience…so I faced my nervous side with a question: What’s the worse that could happen?

OOTD and my cozy little corner

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

We all have that cozy part of our house or apartment we just love. Where we feel the most relaxed, the most comfortable, the most creative…and for me it’s also a part I manage to keep clean :D. And I plan on decorating it with some prints and illustrations soon :). There’s also a small #ootd included in this post. I feel so good in faux-leather leggings and knitwear. It’s comfortable, feminine, casual but not too usual. Just me.

My favourite cafés in Ljubljana

This will be one of those less text, more photos post, because I think the photos will speak for themselves. You’ve probably learnt by now that I’m a huge coffee lover (I’m writing this post while drinking a cup of it:)). I mostly drink my coffee at home, in the morning (or in the afternoon:D)) but when I go to a café, I want it all. Great atmosphere, delicious coffee, cozy seats, nice staff and always – great company.

Danes je čas za manj teksta in več fotk, ker bodo te povedala več. Najbrž že veste, da obožujem kavo in tudi to objavo pišem med pitjem prve skodelice kave danes. Največ je spijem doma, zjutraj in včasih tudi popoldne, a ko se odpravim nekam ven na kavo, hočem vse. Luštno atmosfero, super kavo, udobne stole, prijazno osebje, pa še fajn družbo.

Under a lot of stress?

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Yesterday, I  left two of my three student jobs, because everything was slowly becoming a bit too much to handle and I decided to keep the one that is the most connected with my studies and where I could work enough to get me through the month. One of the main reasons is that I had zero time to work on my thesis, and since I have no desire to spend three years writing it, I had to kick myself in the ass and get to work. For the last few months, I felt like I have to all of the things at once and when I wanted to take some time for myself, I always felt a bit guilty when I saw all of the work waiting for me. So guess what happened last week? I got sick and definitely didn’t get better with working everyday. For the first time in ages, I had zero appetite and I could sleep all the time. My body wanted a time to rest and now I see I have to spend some time at home, in bed, to get better. Our bodies will tell us when they need a break, we just have to learn how to listen to them. That’s something I’ll have to work on:)

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cookies

pb_chocolate_cookies (5 of 7)

Winter is the ideal time for sugar cookies, that delicious sweet bites we eat while watching the snowflakes fall on the ground (or to feel better with all of the rain if I take the current weather situation into the account :)). This one are the perfect combo of salty and sweet, a mixture of my favourite ingredients. Chocolate and peanut butter (if you read some of my previous recipes, this one is probably not a surprise). If you try out the recipe, I hope you like them :).

Lake Jasna and why I like to visit it in every season

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Today I decided to write about one of my favourite destinations (and most instagramable places) in Slovenia. I’m a bit embarrassed to admit I didn’t know that lake Jasna exist until I went to a trip around that part of Slovenia 3 years ago, and while we were driving from Zelenci to Vršič pass, we saw a beautiful lake with mountains in the background. And yeah, I had no idea what’s the name of the lake. But from then on, I’ve returned to this lake every few months. It’s one of those places that looks great in every season. In the summer, you can go for a quick swim or just enjoy the beautiful nature, and in the winter, you can drink a cup of mulled wine or start a fun snowball fight with your friends.

New Year’s Resolutions

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

I don’t really know if that is the right title, but yeah, I’ll kind of talk about new year resolutions. I hope I am not too late, but I really wanted to take the holidays off :D. Towards the end of the year I realized that I’ve come to the most stable point in my life. Somehow all of the pieces came together, I feel like I’ve developed as a person the most in the last few years, I faced my old problems and left them behind, I’ve become more ambitious, creative and motivated. I’ve left some old dreams behind, not because I would feel like I can’t accomplish them, not because they would scare me. I just woke up and saw that they weren’t really my dreams, but a combination of something I thought I should be. I think I could say I went back to my childhood dreams, free from any outside effect. With much more experience, knowledge and motivation. I was always a bit afraid of my creative side, because I was scared I wasn’t talented enough. I was always my worst critic, just looking for the mistakes and not looking at the big picture. In the past year, that has also changed a lot. And now, I’ll have to wait work and see what can happen.
