Shitty start of the week

Hello everyone! 

I am currently taking some vacation days off and do you know what is a shitty way to start our vacation and your weekHaving a 8AM appointment at your dentist. That my friends is a shitty way to start anything 

mean it’s not like I can go somewhere with the pandemic causing more problems in Croatia but still, I could’ve slept this morning instead of being at the dentist. Jus to give you a nice explanation of why I am complaining so much – I HATE DENTISTS.  

When I was a kid I actually punched my dentist. My mother had a blast raising me 😀

Do you know what I do not understand? These dentists and other doctors are supposed to be intelligent people. They can’t even tell time! They are like “this will take just one more second” and then proceed to drill your teeth like they are searching for gold for the next 20 minutes. Assholes.  

But I survived and so did the dentist. I did not punch this one for a change. I have another appointment on WednesdayVery excited about going through that shit again 

Currently, I am back home in Zabok and as soon as I step into my apartment, my publishing schedule on the blog goes out the window so I am sorry about this. I am just a bit spoiled and lazy when I get home but I will be up and publishing your lovely Poetry Bar works in no time.  

The good thing about today is that my online delivery is coming so I will be spending the rest of the day waiting for the GLS driver to come and make my day! I have been doing a little bit of winter shopping and I cannot wait to show you everything I got 

Have a lovely (dentist free) week! 

Sending love and positive vibes,
Luna 

Let’s be positive

Hello everyone!

When I publish my own work or thoughts, I always write a looooooooong column-like post and I decided to move all of that to the comments now. I want you to write down in the comments one positive thing that happened to you recently. Times are rough for everyone because of…2020.

Let’s do this now. My positive event recently:

I read Gloria Steinem’s book Revolution from Within and this book really made me question a lot about my life and decisions I have made. It actually gave me the courage I need to start making some big changes.

Now, I want that comment section burning! Let me know what positive thing happened to you recently and let’s spread good vibes 🙂

Living in IKEA?!

Morning! I am still deciding if it’s good. 

I was supposed to finish my Coffee Date with Luna yesterday evening and have it published today, but that is postponed because my mother had this terrific idea we should start assembling our new dining table at 7PM on a Friday night. Yes, my life is a bit boring.   

We are still in the process of buying furniture for our apartment, replacing the old that we do not like etc., and my mom got obsessed with this dining table and we bought it as well as a new coffee table for the living room. I really have to emphasize that we still have our old coffee table and our old dining table. Did that stop my mother from making me unbox the pieces and forcing me to help her assemble the new table? No. 

We now have two coffee tables, one regular dining table and one dining table that still has to be assembled. I feel like I am living in a furniture store. Why didn’t we finish the table, you ask? 

She didn’t want to say it out loud, but along the way, my mother realized that we actually cannot fit two dining tables in our apartment at once. All of the sudden she wanted to go to sleep because she was tired. Mhm. She just didn’t want to admit I was right.  

I cannot wait for all of this remodeling to be over, but the thing with having a mother obsessed with stuff like this, means that remodeling is never over.  

I know that people look forward to changing up their apartments but buying new furniture doesn’t just give you new furniture. It also gives you back pain and THEY SHOULD PUT THAT ON THE BOX with the instructions. I am going to do my stretches now and today I will finish the Coffee Date post. I promise that no piece of furniture will stand in the way of me finishing that post. 

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend ❤  

Sending love and positive vibes,

Happy Birthday to Us!

Hello everyone and HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US! 

 

got this notification from WordPress yesterday. I didn’t even know it has been five years since I published my first poem here, since I registered and began this little journey of mine. I think that the first three years of my blogging were not very good because of my insecurities when it came to publishing my work, but the last two have been amazing.  

I started to post regularly and The Poetry Bar was started. I just wanted to share this with you today. We hit 6k subscribes recently, The Poetry Bar is doing great, I managed to publish a travel blog, we have over 1700 posts. It’s all amazing and I just wanted to celebrate together with you. Cheers! 

We hit 6000 subscribers!

Hello everyone!
Do you know who hit 6000 subscribers this week? WE DID!

I am so excited about us hitting another milestone and for me this will always be an “us” accomplishment  because this blog is being built by all of us together.

We started The Poetry Bar back in the day when this blog gathered 1000 subscribers and I never thought it would blew up the way it did. I was surprised by the positive response to the idea and am grateful for every single submission. The Poetry Bar counts 950+ posts. We are close to 1000 Poetry Bar submissions. We have also been posting for 700+ days in a row.

I never believed this blog that I started almost 5 years ago would be such an important part of my life. It’s a part of my routine. I get up in the morning, have my coffee and breakfast and then it’s blog time.

This blog helped me get out of my comfort zone in many different ways and I want to thank you all for the support you show for the works of each other and for mine as well.

I would really love to be more active on social media and I will work on that for you guys. Also, I am still coming up with ideas for the Youtube channel I started in order to publish my travel vlog and I hope I will have the time and resources to start working on it soon.

I think that there’s still a lot of things I want to work on when it comes to me as as blogger and a creator and a writer and I am so grateful to have such an amazing platform where we can grow and learn together.

Thank you ❤

Saturday talks

Hello everyone, hope you are having a great Saturday!

Since the last rant things have remained the same with this clogged ear of mine, I am still deaf but I am happy because yesterday I came home. I am finally in my apartment and in my room and I’ve missed it soooooo much.

And I’ve missed my mom’s cooking. I’ve had a bit too much food today and I always do this when I come home to my mom after a long period of time. I am a lousy cook and also I do not like to cook so coming home to her is a blessing when it comes to food.

I have been having some issues with my diet lately and I have been thinking about transitioning to a Mediterranean diet. It wouldn’t be so hard for me because it bases on fruits and veggies which I already eat an abundance off.

What else is neeeeew? Oh yeah, we are soon reaching 6k subscribes on this blog and I never thought this will happen. Like, we are closer to 10k than to 1k which we had a few months ago. I love how fast our little community is growing – not so little anymore to be honest!

This whole blog was a real step out of my comfort zone, especially since I made the vacation vlog and published it on Youtube. It’s the small things that count, you know. I am actually trying to come up with some video ideas when I already opened a Youtube channel.

I have been writing a new Coffee Date with Luna for the last week and a half. It’s just some of my thoughts about that disgusting piece of shit Epstein. As you can see, I hate him and I am sorry that he was killed before her could pay for what he has done and before he could open that filthy mouth on everyone else who was involved. Yes, this post escalated quickly and yes I do believe that he was killed. That wasn’t a suicide. Period.

The reason why it’s taking me so long to upload and finish that Coffee Date is because I have so much rage I have to censor and the post is right now 6 pages long and it’s too much. I am just all over the place when it comes to this topic.

As you can see, ranting too much in my posts is kind of my thing. The only thing short about me is my height and my poetry. I was actually thinking of posting shorter, concise posts here and maybe making videos on Patreon for those who want to listen to me talk.  BTW, if you would be interested in this, let me know in the comments.

And I also have to come up with Youtube video ideas. If you have suggestions, use the comment section to let me know. I am also working on a poem. I am being very productive when it comes to my content creating and it makes me happy.

I am going to stop talking now and hit the shower. It is uncomfortably hot in Croatia. The type of hot when you are just doing nothing and you can feel sweat running down your back. That type of uncomfortably hot.

I am really gone now.

Sending love and positive vibes,
Luna

I will go van Gogh on this ear

Hello everyone!

I am just having a quiet evening and decided to post a little bit something. A few days everything has been a bit more quiet for me because I have problems with my left ear. I barely hear anything and I almost overslept my alarm today because I can’t hear well.

I don’t know what’s happening with my ear because I am in Zagreb and my doctor is in Zabok and I went here in Zagreb to see a doctor on Sunday. In Croatia you have emergency rooms of course but you also have like doctor offices that are on duty. Major cities such as Zagreb also have dentists which work on the weekend and so on. I don’t know how to explain the Croatian health system well because I don’t own that vocabulary to be honest.

So I went there on Sunday explained that this ear thing was causing issues and it hurt. I also work as an agent in a call center, I can’t be half deaf. The nurse was getting on my nerves with explaining that I shouldn’t have come because this isn’t an emergency. I got a bit irritated and told her that I didn’t come to an emergency room but to a doctors office and I have the right to do so if I have a health issue. I understand that it’s advisable to avoid doctor offices now but I cannot examine my ear on my own and I am stuck in Zagreb until Sunday. So, I won’t be able to go to my personal doctor until Monday.

So she lets me in and the doctors checks out my ear and says that due to the symptoms there’s a really big chance that I have an inflamed ear but she couldn’t see because my ear was also severely clogged which is why I am half deaf. I don’t know if you ever had a clogged ear but you cannot solve this on your own. The doctor has to take like a big syringe and wash out your ear. People tend to sometimes try this on their own but you can mess up your ear, balance center… And then the truth came. It was a very big problem that I came there with a possible inflamed ear because they did not have the equipment to solve it. They didn’t have the syringe to wash out my ear and bring back my gift of hearing and that caused them to be unable to actually see is my ear inflammed. According to them, it was not an emergency for which they have equipment and according to me THAT’S WHY I CAME TO A DOCTOR’S OFFICE NOT AN EMERGENCY ROOM!

I am angry, half deaf, the ear situation is also causing issues with my throat and nose. It’s a mess. And it’s also uncomfortably hot in Croatia. Like I literally work from home and am sweating while sitting and typing. It’s awful.

Don’t you just love when I come and post a little bit and I go on a whole rant? Maybe I should start making videos where I just randomly talk now that I made a YT channel for the vacation vlog. I am really glad I got the courage to do something like that. It was a really big step out of my comfort zone.

To end this rant about my ear on a positive note, I found an amazing singer on YT. I don’t know how I’ve never heard of her before. I just wanted to share her with you. Last time I got this obsessed with someone, it was Lewis Capaldi. Check her out! She made a cover of my favorite song and below I will also link her original song.

This is it for me now guys. Sending love and positive vibes,
Luna

Last poem by Luna: Poem #333
Our First Travel Vlog: Vacation Vlog – Island of Krk, Croatia

 

Vacation vlog – Island of Krk, Croatia

It took me a century to finish this but it’s finally here. The little vacation vlog I promised from my vacation on the island of Krk is here. I didn’t think it would be quite as long as it turned out but I hope you will enjoy it and that this could be a fun new thing we do on the blog from now on since I am obviously lacking creativity in writing… but I promise that I am working on it!

Sending love and positive vibes,

Are you wearing your mask?

Hello everyone!

Are you wearing your mask?

They got a bit expensive here in Croatia. I went to buy some more yesterday and was a bit shocked with the price. I think I have to get some cloth masks ASAP. And yes, I was coming home from work when I took this picture and I know it’s visible how tired I am.

So there are certain floods here in Zagreb because of the heavy rain and I am not surprised. There’s a pandemic and we’ve had an earthquake and now there are floods. 2020.

And I am working today and I have to figure out if I can actually get to my job.

Sending love and positive vibes,

Rain, rain, go away

Hello everyone! 

You know when it’s such a beautiful sunny day, the summer is in the air. You put on a summer outfit, jacket not needed and head to work. And after killing yourself for 8 hours you look outside the window and realize that someone pissed off Zeus during the afternoon or that the nature is casually trying to wash COVID away with a storm.  

I came home so wet that I had to drain the water out of my shirt when I took it off. By the way that shirt was light blue, now it’s dark blue.

Also while I was taking my romantic after-work walk in the rain that shirt was so stuck to me that it felt like a second layer of skin.. I hate rain and I also hate carrying an umbrella around, I am not Rihanna. 

Anyways, I am going to enjoy my Noodles now, I deserved them. 

Have a lovely day/evening 
Sending love and positive vibes, 

Luna
