Life happens while you're making other plans :)

Finally I've got everything under control and I'm ready for a new start. I won't say that I have time to relax, cause I've had it too much lately and I don't wanna sound lazy ;D which I am. But that's not the case.

I got my exam results last week. If anyone's curious:

English - B [I am 1% away from A :( ]
Latvian - B
Math - B
Russian - C [with this I'm so happy, cause I thought it was going to be Z ;D ]

And with the results, came the big question - What to do next? I've said it a couple of times that I've figured out my plans for the future, but actually I changed them like 100 times or even more. And I made the decision about what to study, the day before applying for University. As crazy as this sounds, I'm actually happy about my choise. I applied for  Tourism Management. I was really nervous about it until last night, when I got an email, which said that I'm ACCEPTED! and not only that, because of my good exam results, I got into a budget group, which means I don't have to pay for the studies! Now I am super happy and excited. Because this saves me a lot of money, which I don't have ;D

Before all this, I was feeling really down and stressed. That was because of many reasons. One of them was because I didn't know what to study. Another reason was that all my closest friends are leaving. Linda [with her amazing artist talent] is heading to Canada, another good friend already is in London, and my closest friend is flying to Boston in September.

All this made me sad and happy at the same time. I'm super happy about all of them. But I'm sad, cause they are my closest friends. And without them here I'm alone. I just really hope our friendships are strong enough to not disappear. :) 

Anyway, I was worried about being alone. If you know me, you know that I'm afraid of new beginnings. But, now I'm feeling more happy and I still have friends and family who support me. And I know now that everything's going to be just fine :) 

All I have to do now is sign a contract with the University, find an apartment and head towards the future :)



  1. I hope all your notions of what is possible expand for you. Sad-happy, it can straddle a blurry line. New beginnings can be so cheerfully threatening, but you do have that wonderful friend/family support system to fall back on.

  2. And you know that you can't get rid of me that easily, we already tried it once. ;D
    Everything will be fine, you'll see and I'll be back next May. (hug)

  3. Congratulations! Your future's so bright you have to wear shades.


  4. Congratulations on the acceptance. That is such a big deal. I'm so proud of you! You're meant for great things ;)

  5. Dear Baiba, congratulations--loud and long--on your acceptance into the program you wanted to study. And I think you are so wise to turn your face forward toward the future. You'll make even more friends who will stand by you through thick and thin. Peace.

  6. Honey, after reading your blog on and off for a while, I KNOW you will do just fine. You are articulate, smart, warm and friendly. I am glad you have decided to go for it....

    I did want you to know:
    After two years of blogging I am about to call it quits. Most of the stuff I have posted this year was written before my dad died. I can't seem to come up with new stories. If I do I will start up again.

    Now that I am no longer need to care for him I have had to find a way to cycle myself back into the life outside of these walls. I have gradually dipped my toes into that world and find that I am too busy to write. But, more importantly, I find that I am too busy to continue a relationship with all of you bloggers out there. I hate not commenting regularly!

    Although it was you guys that literally got me through these last two years it seems so rude of me to not get around to reading and encouraging you, like you did me. I hope to remedy that soon. When school starts I plan to get pack to substituting, and with that, back to a regular schedule of some sort. That schedule will include a time to re-enter the blogging sphere to keep up with my many mentor's antics.

    I am sending this to each of you as I want to thank you for your friendship and kindness.

  7. Congrats you extremely smart girl! Don't worry about your friendships darling. It will all work out one way or another. I was told once that people come into your life when you need them for one reason or another then they go their way when you no longer need them there. You still have so many amazing people to meet and fantastic things to see and do! Be good to yourself little one.

  8. Hey Baiba! Congratz on getting accepted and not having to pay! That's so amazing!
    By the way, I haven't talked to you in forever! It's crazy because I wasn't able to log into my account in months. Stupid blogger and its dumb changes >.< It was so annoying. I thought I wasn't going to be able to log into my account ever again. But then I randomly checked today and thank goodness, I was able to get in again. Lol. Anyways, I can't wait to catch up and read all about what's happened in your life since we last talked!

  9. Hey girl, haven't written to you in a long while! I'm glad to see that you're still writing though! I'm going to try to keep up with it this year! I love the music and everything you added!


  10. Listen girly girl! I miss you. :) Hope all is well sweet girl!
