New year, same s**t

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!

Year 2015

As the new years starts or has already started for some then it is time to make summary post about my 2015. It was a year of really good things and I am happy to have it 9 hours longer than usual because of being in America.

I don’t never make new years resolutions, if only then just that I would enjoy new year more and have more fun! And as it kind of is our own doing then I think I can keep that for the new year.

As usual, January is for exams and for relaxing.

February, the month I was crazy, starting my ESN time and also joined AIESEC. Also we got a visit from our American friends.

March – the month that changed my whole year. I started to live half-Erasmus life and were very active in ESN. Also I beat my fear speaking or singing karaoke in public.

April, the fool. Most of the time I spent it with my boys. I basically had second home in the dormitory.

May was amazing! I had some cool trips – Tallinn,Helsinki and one to Saaremaa. And the biggest thing was my own organized ESN Farewell party, which is the biggest party of the semester.

June – Sad month as all new friends started leaving Tartu. But in the meanwhile we had Midsummer parties.

July was for Beerfest, Hanseatic Days and also traveling to Vienna and Bratislava.

I’ll skip August as I didn’t do much because all my friends went back home and I was just preparing for my own Erasmus in Granada, Spain. So in September started new era in my life. Most of if was just exploring the new city but also started traveling to near places – like Malaga.

October was full of traveling – Jaén, Ronda, Córdoba. Also more of the city exploring.

In November I discovered the sunsets of Granada. The most beautiful thing there. Also traveled to Alcala la real and Montefrio.

The last month – December. I started it with a long trip to Huleva, Cadiz and Sevilla. Then as every year I had birthday, even though it was different this year. After birthday I was ready for the really long travel, which was first to Madrid and then to El Paso, Texas, USA! And the end of the year I have been here, relaxing and enjoying the holidays.

So I wish everyone a better New Year and I hope it will be a blast!
