New year, same s**t

ea96d872dd0cd4b40accbaa53de4b365

I think I’ve said that already before but I don’t believe in this stuff like “new year, new me”. It is more to make broken promises by people who are not confident enough or overthinking what they can actually do. The life don’t start again every year. The problems you had yesterday will still be there tomorrow.

So how am/was I celebrating New Years? Well, I was actually working. For the midnight we got to run to the main square to see the fireworks and then we went back to clean the restaurant. I haven’t told it here but right now I am a waitress in a restaurant. And now I am home, writing my thoughts down to this post and having a class of whiskey next to me. And I actually like it. I had a chance to go to some different parties but there’s so many reasons why I didn’t even bother in the end.

First of all, I was working for like 13 hours straight. And I am a bit sick so a healthy sleep would do good for me. Second of all, wherever I look, there’s only drunk people. People are already in so deep party/drinking mood that whenever I would get there I would just feel like getting wasted as fast as possible which would end up in a mess or just going home in 10 minutes. Third, I like being alone right now. It is what I need, to learn to be also alone and have a good time. And for the last thing, the people I care the most had their own plans or are so far away.

I know there are people for who actually believe in this new year stuff works and I am really happy for them. But as I am really realistic person then I know that it is just an excuse to do something and break it off probably before the end of the first week or end of January.

I might have gone off as a bit melancholic but I just wanted to wish you alla Happy New Year and I really hope that it will bring you a lot of adventures, travelling and love! So let’s be positive and turn around the bad things from 2016 and make so much better things in 2017! We are the ones making our own luck in the life!

Last Days of El Paso

IOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA have been delaying this post because I didn’t want those memories to end. The summer is long gone but I am still there in my mind. But as end of the year is approaching then I need to move on and get to my next travels also.

So one of those days we went to New Mexico again for horseback riding in the mountains. It was my first time ever without anyone else leading the horse and all by myself. Although it was still in a line and going slowly but my horse wanted to go faster. I can’t wait to go riding somewhere again. Same evening we also went to a place called Little Bit of Texas which is a country dance club. I just love this place! First time learning country dancing and also learned new line dances. I could have danced all night!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A day before the wedding we did some touristy stuff again. We went to the The National Border Patrol Museum. All this time and ways people have been smuggled to the States but they are still finding new ways! And things they have built! Museum is always about seeing so you better go check yourself the stuff they have there if you should ever found yourself in El Paso.

The last time I was in a wedding I was 8 years old and in Estonia. Now it was American-Mexican wedding in a church. So first of all, churches in America are not like telenovelas. It feels like you are watching a play on the stage although it is your friends up there getting married. Then to the reception people just gather on a random time. Who wants to eat goes earlier who just to congratulate and dance come really late. So we got some good Mexican food, some delicious  wedding cake and we took part of some wedding games. First time even trying to catch a bouquet! Didn’t catch it though. And we were dancing line dance in fancy dresses! To sum it up, I am so happy for the happy couple and this whole wedding was such a nice new experience!

So on my last night we went to see the sunset one last time and it was just amazing! It was just so beautiful how those clouds were and how the colours of the sun were playing on them and on the city! It is something that even pictures can’t describe. You all know I love sunsets and as it was also my last day then really didn’t want it to end. But we can’t stop time so after that we went to hang out with our friends to get some last drinks and played few bar games outside.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAEarly in the morning I had the flight away from El Paso. I would say “to home” but I had like 5 flight to home. I got good seats and one flight even in first class so I got to enjoy the clouds and views over different cities. Whenever I wasn’t sleeping.

So that was my whole summer basically. Just relaxing and enjoying my time because I knew when I come back home I won’t have time to relax.
