I went back to school!

Kind of. You can define your own school. So if you’re into Youtube and watching Youtubers you probably heard about Skillshare. I am in love and I am back to being a student.

I love the range of classes you can take on Skillshare and it’s not all that expensive. To be honest, I used a Youtubers code to get a free trial but I do not plan on cancelling my subscription at all. I have classes on cooking, making YT videos (you know I am getting into that), digital marketing, videography etc. I already have my boards created for different topics. I am in love with Skillshare.

After dropping out of grad school, I stopped learning in this way. You know, having a notebook in front and investigating a topic, writing down notes, highlighting stuff. I never knew how much I missed being a student. I would not change my decision of dropping out and entering the labor market full time but I did miss studying. What’s amazing about this is that I can actually decide what I want to learn and for how long. For all of you thinking that this is sponsored, it’s not. Who would sponsor me?

I really like Skillshare so I wanted to let you all know about it in case you have some free time and wish to learn a new skill and go back to school with me. I just finished two courses on SEO that helped me understand SEO more than an actual seminar I paid a bunch of money for (if you remember I got certified in digital marketing a year ago).

Also, have been learning about Italian cuisine there. I love pasta, I love Italian food and pasta is life so I have also been enjoying the course from a chef breaking down basic Italian recipes so even cooking dummies like me can do it well.

Since I am spending Advent away from my family because of some shit, I miss the Christmas spirit and I went out and bought myself some cheap Christmas decorations to have in my room. Guys, I also have my first plant, bought it a few days ago and it’s still alive. #adult

After my shift is done today I have to do something that I know is going to be annoying. Due to the rising number of cases in Croatia, starting on Saturday the stores will have severe restrictions on how many people can enter which means that we are going back to lines in front of grocery stores. My mom already mentioned that some stores started early with this so I have to go today and buy as much as I can carry and need so I don’t have to do any type of shopping during next week. I am so tempted to buy my groceries online, but I eat a lot of fruit and veggies and I want to see what I am getting and I want to see the labels on the food I am buying because I am trying to eat less processed foods and I am also trying to eat food that didn’t travel to the store across 15 different countries aka I am trying to eat mostly plants, meat and other foods that are Croatia-made. It sounds ridiculous but we are in a pandemic and my digestion was always my problem which had terrible consequences on my immune system so I am trying my best to stay as healthy as possible, follow the social distancing guidelines and everything else.

Wow, I just wanted to let you know I started studying again and here I am ranting about my diet. Anyways, that is it for me today. Just want to mention quickly that I am sorry if anyone was affected, annoyed or triggered by the negativity and gender-based hate comments on my yesterday’s post for #savingme. I want this to be a safe space for you and I felt like I had to defend you and my opinion to preserve this platform I am trying so hard to create and it ended up with even more hate comments which was not my intention. I just wanted to say that and now I am really going.

Sending love and positive vibes,
Luna

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://lunatheblog.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!

Shortest horror story

So, people have experienced this before. I have experienced this horrible thing also and I have to go through it again. There are dark circles underneath my eyes. So, guys are you ready? Here is the shortest horror story in the world:

I have an 8AM lecture.

It’s hard to write today

Today is a hard day to write something and I don’t have any backup writing for days like this. Last night, around 11, I came back to Zadar. It was so hard for me to leave my family and my BFF Isabella. It’s not that I got too used to being at home, it’s that Zadar is not where I want to be anymore.

I already addressed this problem in my post I got my Bachelor’s degree and today I’m just dealing with some bad feelings about being back in Zadar and about going back to the university. I just don’t think it’s the right path for me. Despite being completely aware of needing a time off from the university and exploring my options I decided to enroll to grad school because I was just scared that if I take a year off I won’t be able to find a job or that I will just fail. Honestly, I feel so bad about letting fear control me and for making me take this decision I knew I didn’t want to take from the start.

It’s not that I’m completely stuck. I actually applied for a job in the UK. There is this agency from Slovenia that recruits people to go and work abroad. My first meeting is this week and I’m really nervous about it. I hope they’ll like me and call me for a second meeting. It would be lifesaving for me to find a job in the UK or in any other country in Europe because I have this overwhelming feeling that I just need to change something, get out of Croatia, break this routine I’m in.

So, sorry if I just rambled on here but I told myself I will always be honest on my little blog and that’s what I did today. If I get some inspiration I will publish something later in the evening. I am just taking this day to get my mind straight and to prepare for my first lectures tomorrow. If any of you have some advice or experiences with this type of situation feel free to leave a comment or send me a message on my social media.

Love you all!

I got my Bachelor’s degree

So I passed my last final exam today which was the Spanish exam! I officially now have a Bachelor’s degree in Spanish and Italian…. And I’m not at all excited.

When I got my bachelor’s in Italian I was over the top happy. I remember having drinks with my friend at one in the afternoon. We were so happy and pleased with ourselves and today this was a complete humiliation. I wasn’t all that prepared and I was convinced that I will not pass. To be honest, I was kind of looking forward to taking a year off university to work or maybe even go somewhere but I still decided to give it one last shot and took the exam. It was an oral exam and it was so awful. The professors made fun of me, started questioning me about the reasons for which I even started studying Spanish. They just said a lot of things that were actually very hurtful. I do admit, again, that I was not well prepared but then they could have told me to come back in a year and not behave so rude towards me.

It’s just an off day for me today and I don’t feel excited about getting my bachelor’s and going further with my education. I always wanted to have a masters in Spanish and Italian but I think I will only go with the Italian. I have a few days to decide and I just can’t think of a solution.

Anyways my day sucks big time! I think I’ll spend the rest of the evening snuggled under a blanket with a book and…well I’m not going to lie, I’m drinking beer today. I need it. Hope you’re having a great day!

My final is tomorrow

My final Spanish exam is tomorrow and I started to study way to late and now I’m kind of panicking. I have today to catch up on a lot of stuff and I am just so, so scared. I already have my bachelors in Italian and now I need to get this one but I’m going crazy.

I hope everything will go well and I’m only comforting myself with the fact that I can take the exam again next Friday but that is the last time this year I can take it. If I fail tomorrow and the next week then I am pretty much, pardon my French, screwed.

If anyone has some tips on how to study faster or some advice send it to me, comment it, DM me, do anything just heeeelp!

Stressful Valentine

This was definitely one of the most stressful Valentine day ever. I don’t have a boyfriend or anything but it’s not because of it. Throughout my 21 years of existence I’ve thoroughly enjoyed being bitter and judgmental during Valentines and, to be honest, was often drunk with my friends on Valentines but yesterday I just wanted to punch someone.

I’ve told you before I have a few more exams to do and two of them were yesterday on Valentines. One was an oral exam at 11 and the other one was Spanish translation at 6 pm. When I got to my morning exams the professor’s assistan arrived saying that the exam was canceled due to a meeting of the professors. I slept for 5 hours because you know me, I study last minute, woke up, came to the university just to find out that there will be no exam. Didn’t anyone introduce those people to the magic of e-mail and the online page of the university where they could have stated that the exam will not be held. My Goooooooooooooooooooooooood!

I tried to stay positive, grabbed a cup of coffee with the other people who came to the exam and then headed home where I wanted to work on my Spanish for a bit but I couldn’t because I couldn’t keep my damn eyes open. I was so stressed out and tired that I just wanted to sleep. But it doesn’t matter, I got dressed up and stressed up, went to my exam and finished that awful day with a glass of wine with my friend Karla. Because there’s nothing that a glass of wine can’t fix.  Wine is everything. Wine is bae. Wine was my Valentine. #alcoholic.

Sunday – bookday

I know I haven’t really been in touch with you lately but I really had a lot on my plate, from exams to some personal issues. Currently I’m enjoying my tea and watching cartoons like a real adult before diving into my books. Just three more exams and the war is over.

But a next war begins right after and it’s called a new semester and finding a new job. I stopped working as a waitress so now I have to find something else to do. I really liked working as a waitress and all but honestly some bosses are just stressful so I think I’ll try and find some other type of job, perhaps in a store. I used to work at Zara and I loved working in their storage because I didn’t have to deal with sometimes annoying customers. I do like people but sometimes people can be very rude while shopping, like it’s my fault they don’t fit into those jeans.

Anyways, I’m rambling to much! Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday. I think I’ll watch an episode of How to Get Away with Murder and then it’s down to the books. Love you!

Forever and never

Today I’m locking our memory in a box
in my mind and I’ll give one key to you
if you would like to have it. I can’t get rid
of these feelings but I can contain them.
We will be together forever and never, together and apart.

Somewhere in the mind we will create a place that
will be completely ours and there we will live out a
life ‘till we’re old but we will never again hold hands,
kiss during a movie, spend sleepless nights together.

Even if I had a chance I would never come back to your
arms again because I can’t go through this again.
I prefer our Neverland.
I prefer you stay my forever and never, together and apart.
