My life

I got a job!

Hello everybody!

My life has been a mess lately and that’s why I didn’t have the chance to post regularly and I apologize for that but I did post all of your works at The Poetry Bar! Since you have all been so supportive when I wrote about quitting university, getting a job and all of that I finally wanted to let you know that I do have a job!

I have been to a bunch of interviews and it has been exhausting but I managed to land a spot at a little tea house in my town. I have been working there for about a week and it has been great.

Moving back home, leaving Zadar and the university has been rough. I know I’ve made the right call but it didn’t make it any easier.

My eyes were filled with tears when I saw my empty apartment and all of my stuff in boxes but I just powered through all of that. It is still hard getting used to working and not being a student but I think I am doing a really good job. I still have my doubts but I am keeping my eyes on the prize and the prize is happiness, to be honest.

No matter how hard it was to leave Zadar, I knew I wasn’t happy there anymore and I felt like I was wasting my time. A lot of people who know me are surprised because I am a waitress but I love the job, I enjoy it and that’s what matters. I already have my eyes on the university I want to go to in September but I still have to gather the money for the tuition fee.


The reason why I haven’t been so present on my blog is because my mother doesn’t have internet in her apartment. She didn’t need it because I wasn’t home so now we are waiting to get it all installed. I hope it will be by the end of this week so that I will be able to be here as much as I was before.

I will be writing another longer post about all of my experiences in the last few week but for now I just wanted to let you know what’s been going on. Also, thank you so much for sending in your work for The Poetry Bar. I love, love, love reading everything, seeing you communicating with each other and expanding your audience. If you maybe don’t know what The Poetry Bar is you can check everything out here:

Sending love and positive vibes to all of you!

Change can be bittersweet. But just as one of my favorite Chinese proverb goes by, “When the wind of change blows, some people build walls, others build windmills”, I hope you’ve built yours! Wish you a happy & successful future. ❤

This right here, this moment, this post is why I believe so many will remain here waiting for you- when you can and do continue to include us as part of of your life, not because you have, not because you feel obligated to, but because you care enough to want us to be included.

Thank you for posting and introducing all our work as if they (we) were proud displays of family-ship… you wanted the world to see.

God I have a guilty craving for French pastry right now.. ; )

I’m so glad that you were able to get away and find yourself another path of happiness to venture upon. I have nothing but love and faith in you to get to where you want to be and to obtain all that you deserve. Are you still accepting submissions for the poetry bar? If so, i’d like to submit a piece or 2 if you don’t mind.
