I have decided to write more about my personal life as it is. Why not?
At least you’ll know me better, right?
So there are few things I have on mind recently.
1. Am I obsessed THAT MUCH?!
Okey, so I love tea, especially matcha. I used to drink matcha late a lot during winter. But, two to three visits to Starbucks a week is still manageable.
But Matcha frappe came out recently. The same Matcha frappe I drank in Japan. And yesterday I realized I had one every day since it came out. So I’m much more obsessed than it seemed.
And they now remember my name in Starbucks.
Cashier: “And what’s your name? Maria?”
2. University drop out or University applicant??
Just recently I came to a decision I don’t see myself as a Japanese studies graduate. Am I seriously able to sit behind a table all day, translating? Not really. I’m different, I’m creative. I can study languages in my free time anyways. So I dropped out of university.
I was always interested in design. It would make 10x higher income. I could actually CREATE stuff. I could be my own boss. Why shouldn’t I try. So, here I am, I applied. However, there is one problem, MATH. I hate math, my mind works differently than math. I don’t get it. I don’t want to get it.
So I came hope and shared this gracious idea with my lovely family. What were the reactions, you ask?
Mom: “Japan is the only thing, you were ever able to do! Are you serious? What now? You are good for nothing now.”
This made me mad.
I am good enough, and I will achieve anything! Just wait, I’ll prove you wrong!
So, everyone else thinks it’s a good idea. Even my Japanese language teacher, who teaches me since I was 15.
3. I changed my style! (or enhanced it if you will)
Hope it lasts.
Yeah, it took me a while to find my style. I would fancy street fashion. Clothes which looked different from the “casual” ones. So in the last few years I was wearing all black boring outfits good for nothing. Hoping to wake up one day, and find the perfect style.
Not anymore, ladies and gentlemen, not anymore.
I found it, well, not really I just opened my eyes. But change is still change.
4. Old friendships, good friendships!
I cut all cords from my past, hoping to see someone care.
It’s kind of a long story, you know how when you become happy people start having problems with that? Well, that happened.
And I decided to care about me for once. Therefor, I cut all people who destroyed my inner peace.
BUT, this one friend, whom I know, since we were little kids, came forward. And that made me so happy. She is actually a person with whom I spent almost all of my student life since kindergarten. And oh I miss those times. So we went for a coffee, and tomorrow we meet for breakfast. I’m so happy about this.
She is actually this beautiful girl, who is great in everything she does. She has style, is great at athletics, studies super hard school and is very nice. And I don’t get it. How is it even possible.
So that would be all for today. I will get better at this, I hope.
Getting myself out there is really hard.
Is there anything amazing that happened to you recently? Let me know.
