Guys, I did it!

As I said I would, so I did. The Poetry Bar has an Instagram account! I have a few pieces published, mostly from authors who do have Instagram so that I could tag them. All of you who want to have your work on that Instagram page will have it I just need your Instagram links and also I would like for you to write if you’re okay with me posting your work on social media. I know that The Poetry Bar Instagram doesn’t have so many followers but just as any other project in life, we have to work together to make it bigger, grow audience and reach more people.

I really want this to be a creative, positive account for people to come and read through all of your amazing works. Here is the link: https://www.instagram.com/the.poetrybar/

Make sure to leave your  IG links in the comments or follow The Poetry Bar on Instagram so that I could follow you and of course, repost some of your work with your permission.

To review new rules of The Poetry Bar:

  1. Send in a poem
  2. Write a few words about yourself (so that people could get to know you)
  3. Put the link to your blog (so that people could come to your blog, read more of your works, follow you and it will help you gain some exposure)
  4. Put a link to your Instagram profile so that I could tag you when I publish your work on The Poetry Bar Instagram page

Have a lovely weekend!

Sending love and positive vibes,
Luna

The Poetry Bar

Hello world!

I want to start this post by saying THANK YOU! Your feedback on The Poetry Bar has been even more than I expected. You are absolutely amazing writers, you support each other and you are so full of love. I was so overwhelmed the other day when I posted again the rules of The Poetry Bar and more and more emails kept coming my way. Whenever I see an email sent to The Poetry Bar I get all giddy and happy.

Since you love The Poetry Bar so much and I love you so much I came up with another idea. I was really bored at work the other day and my mind was racing as always as I was going through Instagram. I saw some really hateful comments under a post on my explore page and got to thinking how there are so much people who use this amazing gift of social media to spread hate and negativity. I want us to use it for a good purpose and that is to share our community, reach more authors and spread positivity through our work.

If all of you are up for it I would love to create an Instagram page for The Poetry Bar. There I would publish the works you have sent my way, tag you, link you IG pages and blogs in the description of the photos and all of that good stuff so you would gain exposure, people would read your work and of course, we would attract more people to send in their work, become open to the world with their poetry. Also, if you like to take pictures, you can also send them in with a quote from your poem. If you don’t own an IG page, it doesn’t really make a difference because I would make sure to give all of the credit for your poem to you, link your blog, emphasize the copyrights etc.

Tell me if you like this idea in the comments so that I can get down to business.

To go over the requirements for The Poetry Bar again:

  1. Send in a poem
  2. Write a few words about yourself (so that people could get to know you)
  3. Put the link to your blog (so that people could come to your blog, read more of your works, follow you and it will help you gain some exposure)
  4. Put a link to your Instagram profile so that I could tag you when I publish your work on The Poetry Bar Instagram page

The email address is poetrybar1@gmail.com

Sending love and positive vibes,

Just checking in

Hello world! I decided to just check in today. I had such a great Saturday because I worked. No I’m not weird, I was just looking for a job for a very long time and I’m so excited about the bar I’ll be waitressing in. Also, today I just want to talk about going for things.

I’ve sent a message to the FB page of this bar months ago and they just responded this week because they haven’t seen the message before. They called me in to have a chat and the next thing I know this morning I was working a 7-hour shift. This just proves that you need to go for something. I was looking for jobs to fall into my lap, applying to jobs dozens of students with more experience applied and I sent this one message to a bar that wasn’t looking for a waitress and it came at the perfect time because I was really getting desperate. My  point it, no matter how scared you are of doing things such like this, just do it. You’ve got nothing to lose. If you want something, just try to get it. And if you fail, try some more.

So this morning my shift started at eight and the first time I had to clean up a table I almost dropped the tray and made a lot of noise. I was so embarrassed because I was already messing up and I wasn’t even working for 10 minutes. I seriously need a job so I had to pull myself together. The rest of the day went perfectly. The girls I work with are fun and chill. The atmosphere is great, the guests are polite and the bar has a beautiful interior design.

Even though my feet and my arms were killing me after arriving home, I felt so fulfilled. Lately I had a feeling like I was just wasting my time on nothing and having a job, no matter how hard it can be to find a balance between a job and my university, really gives me that certain push I need to just keep going, keep working on myself. And also every job is a new experience.

I don’t want to just ramble on here, so I’ll share a picture with you.

This was me on Women’s day showing all kinds of legs at my favorite wine bar. Before seeing this picture I didn’t even realize how short this pants were (yes, I’m wearing pants). But still it was a fun night and I love the picture!

Hope you’re having a wonderful, productive weekend!

Summer Festival

Summer Festival

I just loooove the festival season! From Friday to Sunday I went to a summer festival in a town nearby. I was there with my friend Unicorn Diary Blog and Marta. I don’t have a lot of pictures to show because I just had so much fun that my phone was the last thing on my mind. For three days I just slept, ate and danced and it was awesome. Just what I needed. The bar in which I was with my friends had the street closed, the DJ was out in the open, there were dancers and everyone danced out on the street under an open sky. It was just awesome!

Now regarding my outfits – I know a lot of you are just like: “Why the f*** is she wearing booties?”
I have an explanation. I’ve been going to this festival for 4 years and one year I went wearing flats and a piece of glass got stuck in my foot. When I got home there was a blood bath in my shoe so since that year I just dread wearing flats or anything that isn’t leather to this festival. Since sandals were out of the option I went with my BCBGeneration heels that are also awesome for dancing. They just give so much support and are extremely comfortable. I decided to wear long pants and long-sleeved shirts because it wasn’t really hot during the night and I’m the type of idiot that gets a cold during the summer so I had to keep myself warm.

Hope you all had a great weekend, I know I did, and let me know what’s your favorite part about the summer. Kisses!

I’m an idiot

I’m an idiot

Today I’ve started thinking about all the stupid habits I have that make me an idiot. Sometimes I just do things that make no sense what so ever. Let’s talk about the reasons that make me an idiot. Shall we? We shall!

  1. If it looks like it’s going to rain outside but it doesn’t rain when I walk out of my apartment I won’t, for the life of me, take an umbrella. I don’t care about gray clouds or anything else. If it doesn’t rain when I’m leaving the umbrella is staying in the apartment. Most of the time it starts raining while I’m walking to the bus station and I get soaking wet, my hair looks awful and I’m cold. I’m an idiot.
  2. Most of the time when I receive a message I tell to myself that I’ll answer it later when I get home or before I go to bed and then I answer it….NEVER! I’m awful a texting so everyone who ever thought I was ignoring you on facebook I want you to know that I didn’t. I’m just an idiot.
  3. When we’re already talking about texting let’s talk about calling. I have extreme anxiety issues when it comes to phone conversations. I start walking up and down; all nervous, thinking people can feel my discomfort and don’t even get me started those strange moments of silence. Am I boring to someone, am I supposed to say something is the connection bad. My God, so much stress! I can’t tell you how many times I got a call from a number I don’t know and then people would go all Adele on me saying “hello it’s me” and I’m just get anxious there because I have no idea who am I talking to. People don’t be annoying, you have a name and use it.
  4. If I spent the time I spend on instagram doing something useful, my apartment wouldn’t be a mess, my life wouldn’t be a mess, I wouldn’t have to study all nights and I’d probably still have time to learn Chinese.
  5. I can’t concentrate on anything for more than an hour, sometimes not even that much. I’m the type of student that has to take a break from studying every five seconds because I’m reading about the Spanish independence war and by the time I’m done with the text I have no idea what I read but I do know I have to buy some new moisturizer, cook some lunch and stalk Nick Bateman on instagram. I’m an idiot!

If you are a failure like I am in any of these things feel free to leave me a comment or a like so I know I’m not in this alone. I’m a big mess of a person and it would make me feel easier if you join me so we can be a big mess together.
