You're so brave.


That's the present age of the writer of this blog. Yup 2 days ago I became legal age in the US.. not that I care since in Europe I've been for the last 3 years. 

Lately I've been getting a bunch of comments all of the same kind, whether its guests I'm having small talk with or colleagues or friends.
"You're so brave, so young and so far away from home." I'm getting to the point of saying.. grow some balls. You're 30 (or older when it came to guests)... I'm not brave.. I had to do it. 

I grew up in a place where my future was working in a supermarket. When I was 6 I remember people asking me (cause I was such a talent speaking 2 languages back then -_-°) whether I wanted to stay in Italy and I always said NO. Imagine a 6 year old... with a brain.

Of course I know that it's a compliment but I can help but hearing envy in some words and I always remember a phrase I *secretly* lived by.

If you don't like where you are, change it! You're not a tree. - John Rohn

Which is exactly what some people need to start living by when they're unhappy... moving to another country can be difficult but start with a reason why and find something to do and f****** move away. You will miss your friends and family but.. you will make new friends and keep in touch with the old ones (yea right as if...).
Make something out of your life. 

I'm glad to say that I finally found my place in this world... I'm a hotel management student. I want to be a hotel manager.. one day... yes one day.. but I'm working on it. I'm actively working on my dream. Start doing ! 

The downsides of this live is the change of companies, not the place you live in.. you gotta find your little corner of paradise (there's one everywhere), but the change of people... it's difficult that you move to a place and already have a close group of friends. You come to realise that... damn it's difficult to make friends. I mean.. as adult where do you meet people ? Besides your colleagues ? 
But you eventually get there it takes a little time.

Anyway I leave you now with this a little negative post, with a song that I thought fitted really well, then I looked up the meaning and... it's absolutely perfect. Only thing.. it's in german.
It's about the need for "strong arms" that can carry you home. Home, is not a physical place because due to the traveling it's not possible,it's a place that you have to create inside yourself.

Long time no see: being a night audit, birthdays and relationships.

Hello My Lovelies,

....still someone there ?

5 o'clock in the morning... conversation got boring..
I know it's been over a month but life just rushed by. Can you believe it's already october ? where did this year go ? You're probably hearing this a lot lately.. I think we're always saying this every single year around this time.

Today I am on my break, so here I am writing to you with a few updates.

1. I survived 2 weeks in the horrible midnight shift.. 23-7 is absolutely not fun believe me. I learnt a lot as night audit but it's definitely not a job i'd like to do all my life, imagine always working when others sleep and sleeping when others wake to go to work. I lost completely the notion of time and I was just constantly confused.

2. My friend Edie is back in Paris for a years (at least) this time to studying Fashion. Hope it's going to work out well this time, considering that both our last experiences in Paris were quite unfortunate (see october 2011). 

Marie and I being obnoxious in the middle.
3. I do still absolutely love my job and I'm growing fonder and fonder of my colleagues which is great and on the other hand bad, I'm gonna miss them a lot when I'm leaving. 
Apparently in the month of November I'm changing services, either housekeeping or reservations. It's interesting but it also saddens me a bit. I only hope that I get to spend my last 2 weeks in december at the reception.

4. I guess I can update on my private life as well.. I can say that now we're 2.. no i'm not pregnant. But that's also all you get. It's an unfortunate situation like always. In any case so don't expect a fairytale to come out of it. I'm a realist.

We don't have pictures together.. this seemed fitting enough ;)

Well that is everything for now. Sad news, my annual passport expired.. but maybe with my birthday money (like last year) I will renew it. November is Christmas Time a.k.a my favourite and I missed it last year so I definitely gotta be there this year.

Toodle pip, until next time.
