First I need to apologize. Lately I haven’t been so active and I wasn’t replying to all of your wonderful, supportive comments because honestly I didn’t have much time. Here’s a little explanation.
I am quitting university. This is a very big step for me and I am absolutely terrified of doing it but I am also aware that it’s necessary for me to take a year off and get some time to think about what I really want in life. I already have my bachelor’s in Spanish and Italian but I am just not sure this is the career I want to be in right now. All of this is life changing for me because I’ve been doing this for three years just to realize it’s not all I thought it would be when I enrolled.
Also, the main reason why this is so scary is the fact that I don’t have a job. Sadly, with me degree I am qualified to do absolutely nothing. I’ve been to a job interview, I am applying for jobs everywhere and I think that I will be waitressing for this year until I figure out what I want to do. All I am sure of right now is that I need to find a job as soon as possible because I am as broke as one can be.
The hardest part of quitting is actually moving out of my apartment. I am leaving it this Saturday and I am just surrounded by boxes, bags, stuff and it’s all a big mess. Moving is exhausting and that’s why I didn’t spend a lot of time on my page.
This is pretty much the explanation. I will keep you updated here about everything that’s going on and as soon as I get any job, you know I will brag about it here. Send me positive thoughts because I seriously need them now and fingers crossed for my job hunt. Thank you again for all your love and support, you guys are the best!
Sending you much love!

Thank you very much 😀
never lose your hopes dear <3
I will not, I promise 😀
I thought I’d pack up a few words of thought you could take with just in case you departure is extended for some time.
There comes times when the things we do often confuses others more than us. That is not a bad things at all and comes with it a new scary sense of adventure we often look forward to plodding thru like a promised dawn when night can seems and feels the coldest.
It is in itself an adventure into hopes uncharted lands by us alone that somehow calls to our soul, our understandment. We will always worry about those unfound pieces of ourselves left behind as if they were pets but we also know those lost pieces often find their own way home in time after a long day at work when we come home and suddenly find they’ve returned, which again, in itself bring a welcome smile to close out a daunting day.
I’m sure as long as you aren’t us behind, we will reconnect soon enough on this page where so many of us reside, crying, bleeding and healing in our shared words of one another.
And while I know it may well seem meaningless to say but you are always welcome to come teach me French that we could lean together if the job market isn’t panning out to well where you are going. The teaching job doesn’t pay anything but the interaction may be heavenly and besides may also piss off some of your old flames. But most importantly I say this to leave you with a smile, and for you to know there are people who care about you for more than taste testing.
So-, Luna…until next we write and read… : ))
This is such a beautiful, inspirational comment and it’s the reason why I love this community so much. There is so much love and support here for everyone. Thank you very much for your words, they brought a very wide smile to my face <3
Oui, de rien.
I hope everything works out quickly. That’s a big step!
Thank you for your comment 😀
You have my spiritual support!
I am sending you a lot of positive thoughts!! I’m glad to hear you are taking care of yourself! I hate moving too, no matter the reason!! Good luck to you!
Thank you very much for your support!
Wish you the best❤️❤️
Thank you ❤
Wishing you all the best, one thing I’ve learned is that the wise person has traveled many roads. Your paths and direction will twist and turn sharply sometimes, at other times long without an end in sight. Just keep your head up and steadfast in your steps. You have a beautiful way with words and your journey shall be your fuel.
Thank you very much, this made me feel so inspired 😊
Hope everything goes well for you Luna. I was in a very similar situation and I am thankful to have had my parents to fall back on. I wish you the best as you go through this difficult time.
Thank you so much 😁
It’s over 20 years since I quit my degree and crept shame-faced back home to my parents: I felt such a failure. Took months to get a paying job but I had worked out what I wanted to do and persisted. Now I look back across two decades of my career and the degree really doesn’t look that big a deal from here. Wishing you luck! 💐
I understand feeling like a failure. I am dealing with all kind of feelings but I am holding on. Thank you very much for your support 😊
Hey Luna! I’m sure things will work out for you. I’ve quit university once, too, and although the following months seemed like hell with no way out, as time passed by I found the light and I found myself, too. Just believe in yourself and you’ll find what you are looking for 🙂
Thank you so much 😊
Hang in there. Where one door closes, another will open. Wishing you the very best in your future.
Thank you 😊
If your job interviews are half as good as your poetry, you will land a fantastic job really soon! Here’s wishing you the best.
Thank you very much 😊
Life has a way of working itself out. When you’re in the midst of it it can be worrying and stressful but twelve months down the line you look back and think it wasn’t so bad. My words of wisdom for you! Wishing you luck-and keep writing! Only just discovered your blog after you liked my poem. Thanks for the visit.
Thank you for your comment 😊
Good luck to you! I hope you eventually find what you want to do.
Thank you 😁
I’ve faced a similar situation. You’re an inspiration.💙
Thank you very much 🙂
Believe me when I say I’ve put much thought to this post after I first read it. Of course you have my love and support. From what I have gathered from both your poetry and you personal thoughts, you are a brilliant woman, filled with passion and a desire to express the deep love within you. I admire your candid humanness, expressing your hopes as well as your pain.
You are a beautiful person and I know you will find your way in this life. I enjoy every word you write and, as I’ve said before, I would feel at a loss if your words stopped. I’m very happy that you’re seeking to form a greater writing community. I think it is a wonderful idea. You might just find a work from me to post sometime in future days.
Oh, thank you so much! It’s so amazing to read a comment like this. I can’t wait to read your work 😀
The best part about life is not knowing what tomorrow will be. Live every moment as a moment and only one at at time, eventually you will find the path. Best wishes ♥
Thank you so much 😁
I can understand your situation very well Luna as I’m in similar quagmire. Formal education can be a shock when you realize it’s not what you invisioned it to be. No problem at all.
There are so many things in this world. We just have to set out mind on one thing. Stay positive and keep working towards your dream. Things will eventually fall your way. Best of luck! 😊
Thank you very much for this comment 😁
Remember the whole world’s in your range
When all your strength is gone.
If you can’t accept, then rearrange;
Can’t rearrange, move on.
(I’ve lived like this for decades, including dropping out of university, changing countries without jobs – or even the language, once – and, yes, it all works out. Just trust in fairytale qualities: openness, honesty, helpfulness!)
Following your inner voice! I have an undergrad degree, too. Years ago, I took classes toward an M.B.A. because I thought I should, because I thought it would make me credible, and because I thought I’d get a high-paying job and never be broke. Well…much debt later from student loans and not feeling like that was my path, I quit! It was scary at first. However, I have never regretted it. As people say now: “Do you!” Just be authentic to yourself and never feel like you need to apologize or make excuses for it. Some of us in the world understand and support you being who you are, not who you think you should be. I wish you all the best!!
Thank you soooo much for this comment. And yes, I agree that it is scary and I am still having some regrets about quitting but I feel so much better and I just discovered a new kind of freedom since I made this big decision. I have faith everything will work out the best way possible.
I am sending you much love and positive vibes, thanks again ❤
Thank you! I’m sending much love and positive vibes back to you!
Hope everything turns out okay. Be strong and blessed.
Thank you for your support!
May good fortune be your steady companion.
Based on my life experience I give this piece of advice, if after a year no profession has called to your heart, pick a profession that allows you the time to do what you love. And become the best you can be at that profession.
In my case, I loved living adjacent to national parks and exploring nature on foot and by bicycle. My job talent was graphic arts and design. So I worked print store computer pre-press layout jobs and shifted national parks every few years up to the point I settled down in retirement. A frugal life, but I enjoyed it greatly.
Thanks for the great advice! 😀
