I met Philip Zimbardo ! | The Positivity Diaries

Hello !

How are you guys ? I hope last week was great for you and if not then I KNOW there were at least a few bits and bobs in there that made you smile, even if you have to think about it for a few minutes ! And I can't wait to hear all about them in the comments of our little communal positivity diary :) But for now, here's my entry for this week :



Monday : I managed to get through  a lot of french grammar... why are there so many tenses ?!?!

Tuesday : My girlfriend took me on a walk to show me a river near her house that she loves and it was so peaceful and beautiful, I had a great time :)

Wednesday : I went on a trip to London with my psychology class to meet Philip Zimbardo, the last classic psychologist ( who isn't dead ) and it was amazing . I turned into such a fangirl , especially considering he was 83 !

Thursday : Me and my girlfriend went to watch a film at the cinema called 'Carol' . We got in for £3 each at a showing about 11am .. we couldn't work out why it was so cheap until we got there and were offered free tea and biscuits and realised it was a showing for the elderly . After talking to a few of the elderly people there we soon realised that they were not aware this film was about two women getting together ... If you've ever watched a gay sex scene with 20 OAP's then you'll feel my pain haha :)

Friday : I went on my girlfriends trampoline and I haven't laughed so much in AGES , I seriously forgot how much fun they were .

Saturday : I've started to really focus my revision so today I made myself the ideal revision area in my room! I've been thinking about writing a post on how to get into the revision mindset so let me know in the comments if that's something you'd be interested in :)

Sunday : It's Easter !! My sister bought me a super cute little mermaid top that says ' I'm really a mermaid ' and it's perfect :)

So that was my week, I can't wait to hear all about yours in the comment and it would be really great if you wrote 3 good things from your week. It really helps to put you into a positive mindset, you'll be amazed at the benefits :)

Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :) 

lots of love, Marianne xxx

  2. OMG, I am laughing out loud at your movie experience, I can't imagine how it was. HAHA! Sounds like you guys had a great time though and that's what matters most. We didn't do much on our side because I was sick for 4 days but we did catch up with my husband's relatives and it was so much fun meeting them for the first time.

  5. The movie must have been a tad awkward- but who knows! It's cool that you met Philip Zimbardo, we were studying him in a few of my classes. He's done some interesting things on Psychology.
    Sounds like an awesome week!

  6. Your week sounds so lovely! XD
    1) I started my 100 days of productivity project
    2) It's the holidays
    3) I made a cake for my friend's birthday, I wasn't too happy with it but she loved it (which I guess is what matters!)

  8. OH MY GOD, HAHAHA. I can't imagine how surprised you were at the movies. I had quite a decent week, I was very productive and I'm very happy with that. I also got a lot of chocolate and that's always good :)

  10. Seems like you had a wonderful week! It must have been cringing at the movies though, also funny in retrospective. Bet it was so fun on the trampoline, haven't been on one in what must be forever.

  13. Everything you did this week sounds so cool but the thing that stood out to me was the fact you saw ZIMBARDO! I'm such a psychology nerd it's unreal and me and my mum were trying to get tickets to see him but they sold out :( I'm literally fangirling so much for you that's so cool! xxx

  15. Hahahahahah the Carol movie bit cracked me up, that is such gold! Oooo wow the knowledge and wisdom Philip Zimbardo must have would be insanely inspiring!

    1. Daylight saving has ended here which sucks since it means summer is over here but it also makes it lighter in the mornings when I walk to the gym for a wee while.
    2. Filming videos is making me happy.
    3. Taking part in a research study that is trying to find the actual gene that contributes in the role of developing anorexia.

    Hope you had a wonderful weekend Marianne! <3 xoxo
