I became a community manager!

Hello everyone!

I told you that I’ll be explaining soon why I have been so much off the grid lately so here it is. Next to my job in Calzedonia I became a community manager for a coworking company in my hometown called Stir UP!

I am so excited about this job opportunity especially because it gives me the chance to work and explore the field of social media and digital marketing which I am currently studying. My co-workers are great and the space is beautiful and so inspiring. Anyways, enough talking, here are some pictures. Tell me what you all think!

No sleep hangover

I have the worst hangover of my life and I didn’t even drink this weekend. I spent two days in a rented out room because, due to my job and a shift until 11 PM, I had no way of getting back home from Zagreb on Friday and Saturday and I didn’t sleep for the last two nights. Let me tell you all about it.

Since I am not really the one to spend massive amounts of money on a room to sleep in because of my job I took one of the affordable, but still nice rooms. Well, considering the room I was in it wasn’t nice and due to it not being nice it was also not affordable since the room wasn’t worth the money.

It seemed way better on pictures (as always). I arrived to that building, got to the third floor and there was a woman that showed me to my room. The whole floor was filled with rooms which were being rented out. She showed me where to turn on the air conditioning and she wasn’t quite as friendly as you’d expect a host to be and then she told me that, since I paid in advance, I can just leave the card in room when I leave and that there was no need for a checkout process. Then she took my ID and TOOK PICTURES OF IT which, speaking from experience because I worked as a receptionist, is not allowed without consent and she didn’t ask and took 20 kunas for the tax for staying in the room. I never got a receipt for that. Everything was so weird but I was like okay, it’s just two days.

When she left I scanned the room a bit. The sheets on the bed were a bit rough but I wasn’t complaining and then I entered the little bathroom every room has. The smell. Guys that smell. The bathroom itself was visibly cleaned but I honestly hope someone will tell the owners to take the fucking shower curtain and wash it.

I couldn’t fall asleep at all these two night in that room. The pillow was awful. I tried to fold it in many different ways to give some support to my head while sleeping but it was like made out of cotton candy. You can bet your ass my back is hurting. My nights were filled with rolling around the bed, playing music to help me fall asleep and in the end watching Shadowhunters because sleep wasn’t happening. I checked out this morning and came to Zabok absolutely exhausted and took a good 2-hour nap to feel like myself again.

But it’s not all negative. I talked to a girl that’s looking for a roommate. She said I am the first one on the list to see the apartment and that she already prefers me over the other people who applied for the room. I guess all off your good wishes produced this miracle to happen because finally someone wants to give me a place to live in Zagreb! I am not getting my hopes up or anything because I don’t want to be disappointed in the end but I still wanted to share the good news with you. Okay… I wrote a lot in this post. Time to goooo. Thank you so much for being so positive and sending your good wishes on my last post.

Sending love and positive vibes,

Luna

I’m kind of homeless

Hello everyone!

Sometimes, and that sometimes happens a lot lately, I use this blog to share with you my frustrations, or something that’s bothering me. I need my blog for that tonight. I just need to vent.

So as you all know I am from Croatia, I live in Zabok and work in Zagreb which is Croatia’s capital city. Ever since I started working in Zagreb my free time has seriously suffered because I have almost none. It affected my blog and my life in general but I am not complaining about that because I really like my new job and it was my decision to get out of waitressing.

One thing I dislike about my job is the fact that there’s a shift from 3 PM to 11PM. I was supposed to work that shift this week but I exchanged shifts with one of my colleagues but I still have to do this shift tomorrow and on Saturday. Here’s why I dislike this. I have no trains after 11PM. I do not have a car and also, I forgot to mention this to you, I fucking failed my driver’s test. I have no way of getting home. I don’t have an apartment in Zagreb. The only friend I have in Zagreb is currently back home and I do not have the key to her apartment. I am homeless for the next two days. Isn’t life great?

I actually had to rent a room for those two nights so I will go to work for nothing because the money I am going to earn in the next two days is actually covering for the room expenses. MY GOD!

All of this made me realize that I have to move to Zagreb ASAP. I have spent the last week looking for a place in Zagreb that’s affordable and I found nothing. Absolutely nothing. The apartments I like are either insanely expensive, in neighborhoods that are too far away from my job or the people renting the places only allow students to move in. I don’t know how it is in your countries but here a lot of students live in apartments if they go to study in a different city. I also lived in an apartment while I was in Zadar.

I am so frustrated. I had two days off and I literally spent them refreshing ads and staring at my laptop looking for a new place. Zagreb is a type of place where someone puts up an ad for renting an affordable apartment and literally the apartment is rented out within 2 hours.

Anyways, I will be sleeping in a rented out room for two nights. All of this is just making me want to cry and live at the train station. I can’t write anymore because I need to pack my stuff for my two days field trip to… MY JOB!

Sending love and positive vibes,

Luna

Positivity Press #24

My new job started yesterday! You guuuuuys, I was so excited! Everyone is very friendly and nice and help me a lot. I won’t start working on my own until next Tuesday. For now, I have a sort of a training period until I learn how to work.

I just want to apologize for neglecting the blog a bit yesterday but I really want to get a hold of the job as soon as possible and I can’t do that with my phone in my hand but I do travel for about an hour to work and back so I’ll try to get work done on the train. Make sure to keep your submission coming. Now I am off to another day of training and learning and I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead.

Love you all!

Sending love and positive vibes,

Hello guys, Luna here for The Positivity Press today!

I hope you are all having a wonderful week filled with happiness and accomplishments. I have some exciting news to share with all of you today. I GOT A NEW JOB!

I am so thrilled because finally I will be able to work in a job that’s more in my field of studies. As you know, I studied foreign languages – Italian and Spanish. My first day is on Monday, so you can expect updates then. It will be kind of difficult because I will have to travel to Zagreb, the capital of Croatia, every day but I am so excited. I promise that I won’t neglect all of you here on Luna and that I will still keep up my work, post your works at The Poetry Bar and The Positivity Press. To go off topic a little bit, I just want to say that I love the effort you all have been putting to build our Positivity Press. I think it’s so nice that every morning I have at least one positive email from all of you to put up on the blog to start off our day with some happiness and sunshine.

So as I said the job is in Zagreb. I will work for Calzedonia in their call center and I will work with Spanish people and probably English as well and I am so excited to actually be able to use Spanish in my work. When I went to the interview I was very nervous but I just loved the work space, the people were so lovely and I hope that everything will go well and that I will get a hold of the job soon. Yesterday I went to celebrate my new job with some gin tonic. Love to drink it!

That’s it from me today. Now tell me what have you been up to and make sure to send your positive vibes and stories.

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!
