I can’t

I know I wrote a post about gratefulness and I am still waiting for all of your lovely comments, but today I need to complain a little bit.
In the last 4 days I got sinusitis, I am drinking 3 different kind of pills, one of which is an antibiotic, I feel like I am high and my head is constantly spinning, I have some crazy shifts to work in the next week, I still don’t have my New Years outfit, I am working a double shift on Monday, then going to a New Years Eve party and then I am working the next day and this morning, sorry if this is too much information, I got my period.
If someone out there is stabbing the vodoo doll with my face on it please calm the fuck down, I want to survive this year.

I just had the need to complain because I am in so much pain and under so much medication I am feeling very emotional all the time.

Make sure to write in the comments what have you been grateful for this year because it would really make me happy and also pray for me because my luck is so great I think I could break a leg or something soon.
I can’t.

Let’s be grateful

Lately, with The Poetry Bar and all, I’ve been all about communicating more with you, being more interactive so I came up with another little project for us.

2018 is coming to an end in just a few days. For me it has been a very long year filled with all types of excitement and change, but it was also filled with defeats and pain. I’ve learned a lot this year, met some great people, made some steps forward and I believe that I became stronger when it comes to chasing my own happiness.

What I want you to do now is to reflect on your experiences this year and write in the comments what events, feeling, people etc. are you grateful for this year. Write from 1 to 5 things. Even more if you want! All of your lovely comments will be published in a little gratitude post on my blog and make sure to place links to your blogs in the comments as well.

I believe that gratitude is a feeling we should all nourish because it helps us see the world through different eyes and to progress in life. Gratitude makes us aware of all the gifts we have and makes us feel more present in the world. I think this post will be very beneficial for everyone who writes and reads it.

I can’t wait to read all of your comments. Also, The Poetry Bar is still very much active so make sure to keep sending in your works there. All of the necessary info you can get by clicking here.

Love you all so much!

P.S. All of you are on my list of gratefulness.

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:  https://lunaiswriting.wordpress.com/2018/11/22/the-poetry-bar-guest-posts-wanted/

Sending love and positive vibes to all of you!

I quit!

Hello guys!

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!

Job interview gone wrong!

Hello guys!
Sorry about the absence today, I just had a lot on my mind and I didn’t have any idea what to post so here I am posting about the “a lot on my mind”. I’ve written in one of my posts that I was supposed to have an interview with a recruiting agency for a job in the UK. I wanted to work as a receptionist.

I was really into going out of Croatia to work but this little interview today completely changed my mind. I was actually left quite disappointed. To tell you the truth I had a feeling like something was going to go wrong but I tried to discard it and stay positive about the whole situation but I should have trusted my intuition.

The interview started out well. The lady from the agency asked me about some of my info and she really loved the fact that I could speak 4 languages. I thought I was off to a really good start and she told me she can send out my CV to different hotels immediately if I was up for it. I told her that I would like to start working as soon as possible.

Then we started talking about my CV. I have only 3 months of experience working as a receptionist and honestly I wasn’t ashamed to write that on my CV but the lady insisted I wrote down I had 8 months of experience. I told her it’s kind of impossible to even write that since I’ve been a student for three years and my receptionist job was a summer job, across Croatia, far, far away from Zadar to which she replied “It’s not like they know where Zadar and  Porec (the city I worked in) are in Croatia”. I was left speechless.

Also, I was supposed to have two letters of recommendation and she told me that I could write them myself because they won’t check them out in the hotel or call my previous employers to ask about me. All of the red lights in my head started to go off. I spent the rest of the interview just nodding my head. She sent me an e-mail with some info she needed from me, including the CV, and one of the things they wanted from me was a copy of my ID. That is a big no for me.

I was just left speechless by the things she asked me to do. I like to believe I have a good moral standard and telling lies on my resume was just against all my beliefs. It’s not that I’m blowing my own horn, but I am a well-educated person, I can speak multiple languages, I have some job experience and I am a fast learner – isn’t that enough to get a job without telling lies and deceiving people?

Anyways, the UK dream is now kind of dead. I am still job hunting but I’ve decided to focus my search on Croatia because after the experience I’ve had I’m a bit scared to try and get a job outside of Croatia. This interview just raised a lot of questions in my head and I just don’t know what to think.

Have you guys had any experiences such as this? Did you go to work abroad? Share some experience or advice.
