Lets share our experiences and admire each other's unique journey's!
Author: Harveen Kaur
Hello! I'm Harveen Kaur, a final-year Biotechnology student at the University of Manchester. I enjoy exploring new opportunities around me like I recently learned to play the guitar and went for my first-ever hike. I capture moments that matter and make b/vlogs about my experiences :) Other than that, I love to travel, watch movies and spend good quality time with my family.
Today was such an emotional day, I felt so low. I was supposed to leave for the airport in less than 5 hours but here I am writing a blog instead 🙄😛. As destiny has its own plans, I had to cancel my two-month prior booked ticket as my parents are traveling to Canada next week. My dad asked me to join them, but I refused as I have exams right after the Christmas break and I had no reason to go. Moreover, I have so many goals set for myself that it’s best to stay here be productive and make the most of this month. While writing this I feel like I’m sounding very mature but trust me throughout the day so many times tears rolled down my eyes I can’t tell. I agreed to stay because I have relatives in Birmingham and London so I’m planning to visit them (hopefully by God’s grace), I can’t stay confined in the four walls of my room.
Another reason for my random outburst was that I recently got my first job as SBS Student Ambassador at the University of Manchester. It was a big thing for me and on 29th Nov’18 I received my first salary, so I bought an iPad for my mum to gift on her birthday (19th Dec’18). But now that I won’t be traveling, I don’t know how to give her that. I hope she’s not reading this (most likely she wouldn’t). It’s fine though (my parents keep traveling, I know I’ll see them super soon 🙏), I’m just very sensitive (a little psycho ha-ha🤦🏿♀️).
For today, I had planned to record a dance video with my friend, but she did not wake up on time, so it got canceled 😏. I was confused about what to do and ended up editing my “Self-Care Sunday Routine” video which is due for like a week now. It’s still not finished yet as I got a few feedbacks, so I still got to improvise on it 😵. Later in the day, I created another beauty look, I personally loved the makeup and hair.
I shot this during the night, so I did not get the “perfect” photo unfortunately due to light issues🤦🏾♀️. It definitely looked better live (yup, self-obsessed 🤷🏿♀️). Overall, it was a slow yet productive day. Hopefully, it’s better tomorrow 🤔. A note to self: I haven’t been able to get up on time or even go for a walk recently, I feel super guilty about it and hope to work on that tomorrow🤞🏿.
Quote for day 2: “A strong woman is one who is able to smile this morning like she wasn’t crying last night” 😊
A big Hello to whoever is reading this! I am Harveen Kaur Gulati, writing my first blog to give you some perception about who I am as a person. I love talking to people about myself, how my day went, my problems (majorly) and my success (rarely). Well, if you’ve not already guessed, I’m crazily self-obsessed. It might come shocking to you guys, but I am a good listener too. I love to hear other people’s stories, and my intense love for romantic movies (Bollywood>Hollywood) and reading “Humans of New York” and “Humans of Bombay” stories proves my point. I believe I get my inspiration to achieve my dreams from other people’s beautiful stories. Is that why it fades away so soon (hmm)?
I am a 20-year-young girl aspiring to achieve something big in my life (like everyone :P) but always fall in the trap of being lazy and other unhealthy habits like overthinking and eating junk food agh (again, like everyone). I think it’s high time that I focus on myself to build a future I want, and this has motivated me to write this blog. It’s like a diary entry for me where I’d like to discuss my day in general. This helps me get a clarity of my thoughts and I’m assuming it will keep me motivated, determined and consistent (hopefully). As I mentioned earlier, I love talking about myself and I feel this is the best way to engage in this busy world (although idk if someone else will even read this or not).

Moving on, I am a final-year International Indian Biotechnology student studying at the University of Manchester. There is so much I can tell you guys about my experience here, but I think I’ll reserve this for another blog. To give some insight, I was so afraid of this journey that I never wanted it for myself, but I have to say it’s made me come out of my comfort zone and basically released me from the cage I had built around myself (truly). I dearly thank my two beautiful sisters I’m blessed to have for forcing me to embark on this rollercoaster ride. Well, the main credit goes to my dad undoubtedly and then them. Trust me, the story is much more dramatic than what it seems to be ha-ha.
It’s December 7, 2018, and me being the confused personality who can’t focus on one thing, I want to learn the art of making decisions and be determined to achieve them. To practice this, I am going to produce relevant content each day until 2019 as I really enjoy engaging with the public and this shall take me one step further in accomplishing my goals. To conclude, the quote for the day would be “Remember why you started”, There is so much I could continue writing about, but I think its time to stop. Stay tuned for beautiful content each day until New Year’s!!!! Let’s make the most of this month. Happy December 😊
