New Years Vlog

Hello everyone! 

Today is December 31st which is the last day of this shitty, shitty year. A lot has happened and still is happening and this night, the midnight, going from 2020 to 2021 will not change anything but it’s good to have hope and work hard to make 2021 an overall better year for the whole world. 

I decided to film a little vlog for all of you, I actually filmed this in the morning on the day of the earthquake.

After what has happened in Croatia, I didn’t think that I will be editing and posting this because I am still struggling with fear and my nerves after the earthquake. Editing this vlog for a few hours actually helped me to get my mind off of everything and away from the news so I decided to post it. I hope you are going to like it and subscribe to my channel. In the description of the video, you can find the link with all of the information on how to donate to the victims of the earthquake, if you are interested in that. I will actually leave the link here as well:  https://solidarna.hr/urgent-call-for-action-from-croatia-solidarna-foundation-and-fund-5-5/?lang=en

I hope you are all well, safe and happy and that we will all have a good 2021!

I love you all and thank you for another year!

Sending love and positive vibes
Luna

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 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

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,
Luna

Take-it-easy evening

So my lectures at the university start tomorrow…
MY GOOOOOOOOOOD

I’m fine but also having minor panic attacks. I did work my ass off this summer and dreamed about coming back to Zadar but now that I’m here realizing this is my third year and how much things I have to get done this year it’s honestly freaking the life out of me.

Also my lectures schedule is awful. On Wednesdays I’m at the university from 8 AM to 8PM with one two hour break but on Mondays I don’t have lectures until noon so that makes me feel a bit better about that horrible schedule.

I took the evening to myself and considering the work I will be doing this year these types of evenings will be a must do for my mental health.  I lit up my Mountain Berry  Blossom scented candle,  had a warm shower, cleaned my face, put a face mask on, ate chocolate, scrolled through Instagram and started watching The Handmaid’s Tale. It’s been my desire to watch it for a very long time and what better time to start than the day before my lectures begin. #responsible.

Also I recently had some serious problems with my skin so I’ve been looking for some products to help me. My skin is very sensitive to pretty much everything. The first products I’ve been buying are from Bioderma and Biobaza. It’s a bit early to give any reviews but as soon as I have something interesting it will be on the blog.

So this is it from me for this post. Good luck to everyone going to hell like me tomorrow. May the odds be ever in your favor! Don’t forget to stalk me on Instagram, like me on Facebook and follow me on Twitter.
