Diary

Breathtaking moments

Last year was too hard mentally and physically. I fractured my column and broke my leg, and on top of that I lost a few friends. . I do not like the phrase "It will make you stronger". No, it didn't make me stronger. It made me different and better. And I really like myself now more than a year ago. I can't say I have found myself but the way for doing so — yes. I've stopped being afraid of new things and feelings. And now I really try to do things and live life as I want.

So, instead of those bad things I've got some very good and breathtaking moments.

 

MY CAR

I bought my own car. I like driving. Ohh yeah!. You can go wherever you want!
It's some kind of freedom. I am in love with this golden baby.

 

MY FRIENDS

Some friends supported me in a difficult time. And of course our friendship has become only stronger. I am grateful for the time I am spending with them. It is very important for me.

FEEL YOURSELF AS AN ADULT

WHEN YOU ENTERED THE CITY OF YOUR CHILDHOOD
with YOUR OWN CAR

It's an incredible feeling

 

TO FIND A SISTER

She is not my real sister. But we have family in common. My grandmother introduced us a year ago. In the same time I realised that we worked together before (and we didn't know we have the same relative). It was sooo strange but magical. Now we are very good friends and soulmates.

 

TO FIND HOME

TO FEEL YOURSELF A LOCAL IN the CITY OF YOUR ANCESTORS

Yes, one of my ancestors was Polish. Polish people have a different language and I have never been in Warsaw but I felt myself at home. In Moscow there are so many faces and nationalities. Here I noticed I look a little bit as all the people around. 

 

TO LIVE FOR A LONG PERIOD IN YOUR FAVOURITE CITY

Saint Petersburg

It was so cool. I dreamt about it during the whole year. I rented a flat, worked there or on the seashore, had breakfast in the city center and drove to other cities around. At first it was a little bit scaring to use my car in a different city until my first accident happened. Oh yes, people in that city drive so bad, but maybe they are just being creative.

 

SUMMER IN OCTOBER

Moscow weather can be unpredictable and give surprises in October.

 

NEW CITIES NEW EXPERIENCES

 

TO FIND YOURSELF

When you meet people who are really happy you'll start to identify yourself with them and live their lifes not yours. Even when you really like to do what they do, the most important thing is to find yourself. Only yourself. It's important to learn a lot of life lessons and spend a lot of time on your own. 

 

LOVE

I always thought that you won't find your real love until you find yourself. Maybe it's not a rule for everyone. Just for me.
But I think you should first become a complete person so when you find real love you won't lose it.
