Exam preps

I have thought a lot about this post, also because its been a while since I last posted something on my blog, I have missed writing a lot to be honest and I finally thought of the right post to write, so all of my followers knows why I am a bit quiet on my blog and maybe a little stressed – but in a good and healthy way none the less!

I have been in school the last couple of months, I have had an introduction course to the caregiver education and I have been studying like mad and enjoying life and all its ups and downs. I have not had many downs though, I have worked very hard and I have fewer weekends to myself and my fiancé than I used to have in the beginning of the education course.

I have started working as an uneducated carer at the elderlyhome I was an intern at, I work the weekends that’s available and sometimes its many, sometimes none, it always seems to change and that’s just fine with me. I have been on whats called ”SU” – education benefits in a more simple term I guess you can call it, that’s something we are very lucky to receive here in Denmark, but its a very slim pay, with hardly any money to spend on anything but rent, so I took this job due to finances, but also because I want to keep in touch with the very first place I worked and I have loved that very much.

So I am working during most weekends, at least once a day every weekend, sometimes the entire weekend, that is very giving but also hard, cause of the very little free time I get for myself. This weekend I have two morning shifts, that will be my entire weekend gone, but its okay, I know a lot of people work a lot harder than me and I feel blessed because I have this job to rely on, while I study, it has been a lifesaver and my boss was an angel to give me this opportunity.

All of May have been a real struggle to find an internship. Due to the new education reform, we now have to find our own internships, instead of just getting them appointed to us, they said in mid May on the radio (Danish radio), that it’s very few that get an internship nowadays as a carer or as an assistant nurse. Let me tell you guys, its been a real struggle.. Hard work and a lot of stress have been built up in the month of May, having to focus on education and paying attention to what the teachers taught us, while also having to go to interviews and writing applications for internships – that’s been horrible! But in the end, all my hard work has payed off, I was cheeky and called up a kommune and asked if they could help me and get me an interview, it worked! I had an interview with them, and after about two week I got an internship with them, at a care home close to where I live and after August I no longer have to stress about how many shifts I get at work in the weekends, cause I will get adult internship salary, something that not many have been given, even though we thought that we were all eligible for that. It is a complicated and impossible system, but I thought you just had to be 25 or more to receive adult salary, but unfortunately not. I do not have the answer to this even now, I just know I was one of the few with enough work experience and the proper age. I do think a lot about what this means to my classmates, but I also know that their going to be amazing at being caregivers and together we can help support our elders and disabled.

I have gotten a lot of friends and acquaintances at this education, it has been an amazing experience for me and I would do it all over again, I feel a lot more confident than I did when I first started and now I got some amazing tools to take with me to use during my internship.

The exams are creeping up, next month – July to be exact. I need to have my exam in this main course, so it’s just a regular main exam and then another one in biology / science, which we in Denmark call ”Nature subject”, I’m mostly nervous about the last exam mentioned, cause that is some information you need to remember by heart, to me that is hard. Math has never been my strong side and there is a bit of math in this subject too – but it all comes down to what stuff you get about at the exam and that is something you draw the day before, so you will in total have 24 hours at each exam. I will just do my best, cause that’s all I can do really.

I hope for the very best outcome for all my classmates, cause they have all showed such interest and passion for this education, they all deserve to pass with honors. We need carers that love what they do, just like my classmates do every day, when we have discussions about ethics, moral and dilemmas. We have had some amazing cases that we have worked on and that we have had to discuss in class. In our line of work, we get met by a lot of choices and dilemmas, where our morals will be tested, so far I think everyone have passed with flying colours.

So to wrap it up, good luck to my classmates, to the ones out there reading this post, thats also studying for exams and for the ones looking for internships, you can do it!

With love, Miamariah! x


Our engagement

We got engaged the 9th of May 2015

My fiancé proposed in May, when he moved here, he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me, and I could think of nothing more amazing, so I said yes. We want to get married at some point, but haven’t set a specific date yet, cause 2015 have been so insanely busy, and 2016 will probably be very busy too, but all we know is, we don’t want anything huge, we don’t want it inside of a church, and we only want our closest family with us to watch the ceremoni and then elope to somewhere warm and fantastic for two week, and have our honeymoon. That’s a goal for us!

The ring, as you can see is here, and its from Pandora, a Danish brand, which means a lot for us, cause its so popular in England and then its Danish, so its a symbolic thing and I love the classic design, he saw it and just instantly knew that it was me, he have chosen perfectly and I can only say, that I’m spoiled rotten! The pictures are from May and June, the top one is from June, and the bottom one is from the day we got engaged, the 9th of May.

The day he traveled here, to move in with me permanently, he asked me to marry him, in our kitchen, I could clearly see how worried he was, it was cute, but in the end, he asked me, and I had tears in my eyes when I said yes. So we have decided to spend our life together!

He makes me a better me, I am stronger with him by my side, I set so many goals for myself that I never thought I would accomplish, but I did.

It almost broke my heart when I in August got told, that I did not have the required grades in math that I needed, even though I passed my oral exam, I did not pass my written exam in 9th grade, it was a very stressful time for me, and I got told that I had to pass a written math exam, so I knew I had to hire a tutor and start studying very hard, but he was there the entire time, and told me to fight for it, to never quit, because he could see how much I wanted this, and he was the one who gave me the confidence to set myself the goals.

I got a math tutor, I studied so hard and worked too, it was some hard months, but I went to the exam and I passed my math exam, I got into my education and I have spend six month working where I wanted so badly to work, I accomplished that, with his support and my own determination. I can thank him for a lot of things, and I have and will keep doing, he makes me strong enough to fight for the things I want. I can do anything with him by my side.

Going back home

Goodbye UK, gonna miss Elland, been here for eight days now and I don’t seem to wanna leave!


My heart is in two countries – England and Denmark. I don’t want to say goodbye to any of them.

It’s never easy taking that dreaded plane home, I hate going home from England, I wish I could just stay forever. He is moving to Denmark in a few months, but the wait will be horrible, being apart is never easy and I wish he could just go with me right now.

I’ve traveled to many places around the world, but UK has always been my favorite. Been here quite a lot lately due to my boyfriend and all, but my first trip to UK was when I was fifteen, and I swore to myself that it wouldn’t be my last time. I love the language, the buildings, the shops, most of the food – haha, and my boyfriend is here and his entire family.

This time I met the rest of his entire family, I saw them all, I feel closer to all of England now, and I’m gonna miss it so terribly! It won’t be the last time that I’m going to visit, I’m in love with the country and the people I’ve met have gotten a special place in my heart. 

All of his friends and family have made such a huge impact on me, they are forever special and I wouldn’t ever wanna be without them in my life. I think I’ve been lucky, to have met all of these amazing people.

This picture was at “Julio’s” – an Italian restaurant in Halifax, we celebrated my boyfriends 30th birthday here, and I met all of his family there by coincidence too.

I’m home now, home to an empty and quiet apartment, and an even emptier fridge, I just hate coming home and having to throw out things that’s past the expiration date, it’s horrible! My fridge is as empty as I feel now, it’s always so horrible going home to an empty place, a very quiet house, having to get used to the silence again. I’m too social for silence, I hate it!

But it will all be okay, I know that in just a few months, we will be together for good. No more missing each other, no more wishing and longing. In the meanwhile – I’ll try to make myself busy, I need my garden sorted out, I have got the most beautiful little garden plot, and it needs sorting, this year I’ll try to plant even more and get more salad and fruit from the garden, I can’t wait to get started!

Saw this at the airport, and it’s not a lie though – we (Denmark) have been voted “happiest nation” and that’s pretty damn awesome, I’m proud of my country!

I miss you!

Who doesn’t feel just a little bit “boyfriend soppy” at times?? I’m missing my boyfriend so much, ever since he left Denmark I have been in soppy boo!


I saw this pillow on Facebook in a post about loneliness and I truly just got inspired for this crazy post, about longing, missing someone, distance and soppiness!

My boyfriend is from England, he wants to move here, but it takes time and planning! I want him to take his time, give him space and let him plan before rushing in – but at the same time I just wanna kick in his door and steal him away, haha! He has been such a good guy towards me, and I’ve been the happiest with him, I don’t think I can ever remember a time, where I was happier than this.

When finding a guy, where you can truly see a future and a life with him, it’s hard to let him go, let him take that plane home and just wait for the next time we are going to see each other!

Before he came to visit me, I couldn’t sleep, for two weeks I suffered from horrible insomnia and as soon as he was here, I was sleeping normally! When he left, I again had trouble sleeping – hence the late night posts at times.

It’s strange that another person can make such a huge impact on your life, I do believe in such a thing as a soulmate, and he is mine, he really is.

I need that boyfriend pillow! Maybe I can sleep better at night! For Christmas my boyfriend actually gave me this pillow, that has a speaker inside it, where you can plug your phone into it and play music, and I’ve been using it a lot lately!


This pillow is so comfy, even without the music, and I really loved this Christmas present! I am so spoiled and I am truly happy that he thought of my insomnia while buying this for me. Sometimes I can’t believe I’ve been this lucky, to find a guy, who has truly grasped the idea of me, how I am and what I’m like. He knows me too well!

To all the boyfriends out there, that this Christmas bought something for their girl, that was well thought out, thank you for setting the standards! 😉 You have – like my boyfriend, truly understood the idea of giving a gift! It’s the thought, that you guys have thought of her, what she needs and what she would truly love, and found something, that just fits her! – Something that would maybe have been a strange gift for everyone else, but for her, it was perfect! You guys rock!!!

To all the girls out there, receiving these gifts, I hope you truly appreciate your man, and that you also bought him something well thought of, cause he deserves it!

So much love to my way too amazing boyfriend, am truly the luckiest woman alive!

See you online guys xx
