I am Nicole a uni student.
During yesterday’s afternoon I found myself again swiping and swiping up through Tik Tok. When one particular video caught my attention and it was about a series of books. As a person I do not read a lot but I do not mind reading a book once in a while. So, I went on my phone’s Google Chrome and searched to download the book as a pdf (I managed to download and access it successfully).
In the past, around 4 year ago I have read loads of books online aka Wattpad books. You know those cringe plot books that every Netflix series revolves around. I started reading the first book “Shatter Me” series, I could not get myself to stop reading until I had a lesson. I am almost half way through it and let me tell you that it is worth everyone’s read. I am thankful for that Tik Tok that showed me this series. Now I will be moving on to today’s main gist of the blog.
What do you prefer a book in your hands or a book on your phone?
Like I have said it does not affect me at all to the extent that I prefer a digital book more than a printed book. Why is that? Well, firstly during the day I am pressured with assignments and online classes. In other words, I have little time to grab a book and read. Most of the time that I read is at night. That is why it’s convenient to have it on my phone. there is no need of a lamp and my eyes squinting to see the letters.
The app I use to read pdfs lets me change the background colour (lighting etc.) as well as the font sizes. It is better for my eyes and can stay comfy in bed scrolling on my phone. When reading a printed book it always makes me feel tired or hurts my eyes with the small fonts. Moreover, it is accessible everywhere since everyone takes their phone everywhere even to the bathroom.
I would like to conclude this blog by asking you readers about your thoughts on this idea! What do you prefer? Have you read Shatter Me series? If yes, what do you think? That is all I wish everyone a safe and happy Easter holidays.
Hello, readers new and old!
I am Nicole and today I will be ranting about life here in Malta and as a university student. I hope everyone is doing alright. Drop down from where you are? If you are still a student or working or other in the comment section below. Thanks, loves.
SKIP INTRO !
Thankfully the second semester timetable has been changed to a better one. I am that kind of person who prefers to stay a few more hours late at night and wake up in late morning. Finally, I am satisfied since only my Friday lessons start at 8am. The rest of the lessons during the week start after 10am which is like a miracle sent by God.
This is my routine:
9.30am Wake up
Then lessons and during breaks watch series, eat something etc… (wasting time)
By afternoon I get tired so I go take a 2 to 3hr nap
Then, I wake up around 6pm, eat dinner and go call with my boyfriend
Roughly I do that every single day. In short I have become lazier! BUT. A big fat BUT . . . Here it comes the positivity of my life . . . Although, today I am slowly finding motivation to study and make notes so I won’t fall back behind in class like last semester. Trying to work hard but online lessons are just not my friends.
Another beneficial that I am finding is the chance to have morning walks with my dogs they are the best to waking me up and taking in the fresh air from the mask stuck to my face. Anyhow, it is my chance now to not act like an old women stuck at home but to be more motivated.
Also, I am starting my routine journal again because without it I feel so lost to what I have to do during the day. I will keep the few readers of this blog updated with how this personal scheme goes. Excuse if there is some wrong English tenses etc . . . English is not my strongest subject.
At this stage of my life I have learnt to be more thankful about the things I have. Also, to appreciate the hard work that others do to see me content. Life isn’t just about me, you, her, him or whatever pronoun you refer to identify yourself as. It is about all of us! We should be as a community, as one, and help each other.
When did the our society become less helpful and more interest in self-gain? I am realising that life is about the experience, the impact and what I say and do that affects others. Why should I throw hurtful words at others when I can take better actions which will have less of an impact?
I believe this approach to life is a better one. If I pay more attention about my actions I will not only be living a better, positive and mature life but will affect others’ day. I am strong, lovable, passionate person who is capable of taking control of how I live.

Do you ever wake up with many ideas and feel a rush of adrenaline filled with energy, sparks and butterflies.
“Today is the day. Today is different,” I say.
I wake u from bed ready to be progressive and work my ass off. As soon as I am going to start, everything flies away as fast as a shooting star. My hopes, my ideas and my motivation die all down as the shooting star crashes. Why I ask myself?
I feel like I lost all sort of energy from my youth and scared that it’s all gone. I no longer stand out from the crowd I am just another human who does what she is told. Why did I stop chasing what I love I ask myself? Why did I give up when I am still 18 years old and life is still full of choices?
Am I alone? Or is it the pandemic, the staying in not going out meeting people because of online classes making me lazy? What is the cause I ask myself?
The only cause is the one and only myself. I have become lazy in achieving anything and giving up so easily. I used to be fearless to try everything new and experimenting. But I have given up and just moving with the flow.
