When I was in high school I didn’t think that I will possibly become a college student. For me it seemed like a whole new world that I wouldn’t possibly get along with. But when I started my first college year, I realized that it wasn’t that scary. I learned and achieved some goals and even though they were minor ones, they made me happy and proud. I got to improve my English which is one of the languages that I adore. I now ask myself, does the fear help? Sometimes yes… but sometimes it can lead us backwards.
And now I am about to start my career with a wonder, am I going to let go the fear again with this fresh experience? I now know that it will eventually go away, after preparing me for new adventures, competitions and successes. This time I want to get big achievements and become confident with who I am. What I mostly hope for is to keep learning and carry on the bath I’ve started earlier.
Please feel free to tell me what plans do you make when starting a new experience.
The day I passed the exam and gained the position of a translator job- Thank You God-, I was wandering around and looking for the place where I should sign some papers to make everything official. I found a woman who was in charge and told her that I’m going to be working now but I needed someone to tell me where I should go to sign the papers. She looked at me with a smile, “You didn’t get the job yet, you just passed the exam”. I said nothing and just listened to the instructions and turned away. As I walk far from her, I was thinking that didn’t she supposed to say congratulations or maybe say nothing? When you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all, isn’t that better? This way you won’t hurt anyone. I know that I won’t start working now but I just said what I said because I just said it naturally with a spirit filled with happiness and excitement.

I love this saying and I try to follow it every day. I also believe in ignorance and how it can help us to walk through criticism and discouraging comments. I once read that our response of the incidents that happen to us is what controls how we feel. I am just happy that my happiness didn’t break in that very special day of my life and I truly forgave her for the comment she made. I just hope that I will always be strong enough to handle happiness breakers!

My sister and her adorable family visited several beautiful European countries: Germany, Holland, France and Belgium. They swam in Germany, learned about cheese and hugged cute birds in the Netherlands, played in Disney land in France and the list goes on. They told me about their adventures and what they liked the most in each country. As their stories were so entertaining, I was more curious about my gift ^guilty smile^:)
Before they leave, I told my niece that I wanted to have a “Mickey Mouse Ears” from France, which is a bit childish considering that I am 22 year old! But I really wanted to have it and I never thought that she would remember but luckily for me, she did. The price of it is a bit expensive and I know that because Blair Fowler did mention it in one her YouTube videos. But it totally deserves it. The next thing that my sister got me is a shower cream, along with a lip palm. I think that these two are from Germany. They smell AWESOME “Strawberries’ flavor”! The third gift is a beautiful keys medal in the form of The Eiffel Tower, which of course from the gorgeous France. The last gift is a classy long necklace in black color.
Gifts make me happy because they prove for me that the other people have thought of me even if I wasn’t with them. Plus they help me full my closet YAY!
Hope you enjoyed my post
