Child labour (1)

Hello to today's post.
As you can already see by the title this post will be about child labour.
We started to discuss child labour in India in class about a week ago and I just couldn't get it out of my head.

In the post about the changes I said that I once thought about statring a fashion blog. I also thought about making youtube videos, becoming an actress, a singer and so many different things.
Later I thought that I could achieve all of that.
I could always start uploading videos on youtube or I could sign a contract with a model agency or whatever.

But those children working in the factories and on the streets they have no chance. They can't do anything about their dream.
 It is so sad that some kids can't even dream. Their dream is probably to be free and we dream about driving an expensive car or playing a big role in the next movie.
The dreams people in this world have differ so much and many people don't even realize that.

We only talked about India in class but actually child labour is not only a problem in India. In an article from 2013 UNICEF said that there were about 168 Million children from 5-17 involved in child labour.
Yes maybe there have been more children working in the past but nevertheless this is a huge number.
For example there are currently about 146,270,000 people living in Russia. That is the amount of children that are involved into child labour.

I want to write more blogposts about that in the future so I would really like if you can share your opinion.

What do you want to know about child labour?
Would you like me to do a series about this topic?

Thank you so much for reading. I hope I made you think and that you enjoyed reading.

Hello to the world.
I wanted to write so many blogpost about so many different things but I hadn't had the time until now.
I was so busy the whole time but I also had so many ideas and things I wanted to talk about. 
There were some things that captured my attention and that I wanted to share my opinion about.

I want to write about happiness, equality and so many things that bother me. I really hope that I can get you to think about what you could to to be happier or what good things you could do for this world.

This post here is really short and I know that. But I just wanted to tell you about the changes. I don't know when things will inspire me to write about them or what exactly I will write about and I can't promise anything.

Also in all post I will talk about my opinion on things. They don't have to be your opinion or whatever. But that is what blogs are about. They are about sharing ones own opinion and telling it to the world. So that's exactly what I am going to do.

I don't want to write about beauty, fashion or anything like that. These are just not the things that make me the most happy. I thought about creating a fashion blog some time but what interests me more is real problems and real happiness. I mean if beauty makes you happy then it is ok, but it is just not what I see when I think about happiness.

When I think about happiness I think of colours, smiling people all over the world, children that play just being happy,... There are so many different things that make people happy and also so many things that make me unhappy at the same time.

That's what I want this blog to be about and I hope you want to read about it.
If you don't like this topic I totally respect that. I mean respect is the first step to feeling happy and also making others happy.

Do what you love and love what you do,

Making my mum happy

Aloha everyone,
 well maybe aloha is a bit wrong to say here because it was honestly raining for the last four days but whatever. 

Thank you to everyone who visited my blog because this huge number of visits for me is just insane. When I think about that people read what I write.... Yeah it is just a really good feeling to know that some people actually care about what I think.

Somehow I wanted to make other people feel the same way and get this feeling of happiness because of people caring about them. This sounds as if I did something extremely good or so but don't get to excited for me to tell you what I did. 

To understand what and why I did it you got to have some background information.

Whenever I was somewhere with my family my mum took photos. Whenever there was a birthday or whatever my mum took photos. She just loves to take photos and I always thought that she should do something with them instead of just putting them into a photo album. I wanted more people to see my mums pictures and to make her happy with that too.

So what I did was that I finally made it and convinced her to create a profile on Instagram. 
She never understood how I was abled to spend so much time on stalking people on Instagram or why I was so interested in other people's pictures.
But when I finally convinced her she started to really enjoy Instagram. She uploaded 8 photos until now. I find it so cute when she asks me if I have any ideas for good hashtags or something.

To come to an end, I think I did a good job in showing my mum how it feels if people read or see what you want to show them. Just like the way I go crazy if this blog got a new visitor she always gets excited when someone liked her picture.

I don't know if your parents use smartphones or if they run around with these old nokia phones. But it would be cool if you could comment how your parents think about this whole smartphone hype. And if they maybe use social networks like Twitter, Instagram or Facebook.

I hope you liked this post and I will talk to you soon,

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all of you,
it took me a little time to get myself to write something on here again. I wrote everyday until New Year's Eve so I had some kind of pressure (but the positive kind) After New Year's Eve I just enjoyed my holidays and I didn't spent much time on my laptop. Seriously I only turned on my laptop once and that was because of some school project I had to get done.

This time was really good for me. I really liked doing stuff that had nothing to do with sitting there whith my laptop while others are having fun. 

I had some alone time that I spent with reading and decorating my room. But I also used the free time to go out with my friends or my family. To be honest I watched movies with my friends so we had to turn on the TV. But I don't think it is a problem to use a TV or a laptop when you are with a friend.

I can be so great to chill but at the same time hang out with your friends. I really love these days where me and my friends are just chilling together because many great moments and funny situations can occur just because you are not alone. Maybe a sentence from a movie becomes your special joke or you start laughing because you or your friend is overreacting in a horror scene.

All I really want to say in this post is that it is totally okay if you want to spend a day alone just reading or watching a movie. But you can also think about your friends. Maybe they are also extremely bored but don't want to do anything to stressfull. But there is always the opportunity to be bored together and do something about it with a friend.

I hope you see what I mean and maybe you call a friend if you have nothing to do. To be honest I watche one movie with three friends in my holidays. (It was the Maze Runner and it was so great) But the point is that we had fun spending the day together even though we didn't do anything.

Please leave a comment which movie you love to watch with your friends.

I will hopefully talk to you very soon,

Norina xx
