I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.

Today is The perfect Autumn day. Not too hot, not too cold, not too sunny, not too cloudy. It's Perfect!!  These are the days when my dog knows he's going to get a good long walk out of me. 

If there is one thing I love about Autumn in Latvia, it's the view. The leafs are in all kinds of colors and the nature simply looks breath taking.

So, I know I haven't been posting and commenting for a long long time, and I do apologize for that, but I didn't feel like writing and I've been in a funky mood for the last two months. The University has challenged me to stay optimistic. Well, guess what, University, CHALLENGE ACCEPTED! 

Even though I can't stand the mess and problems school has given me, I'm gonna try stay as positive as I can be. After all, I'm doing this all only for myself and my future. Although it's bringing me some trouble and messing up my plans. 

I really wanted to use ERASMUS program next year. It's a program where I can go and study abroad for a whole semester. The only problem is, my university has a crappy list of partner universities in Europe. I'm gonna try my best to figure out if I want to go to any of them. But so far it looks like I'll have to stay in Latvia. Which sucks, by the way. 

The good thing is, that I'm doing really well at university. My grades are almost perfect. I got an A in Philosophy. In your face, Aristotle! LOL. 

Anyway, I'm just gonna try and succeed in everything I do. and then I'll see where the future takes me ;D I just have to figure out ways to stay happy and positive. One of them is Hockey. ;D I'm skipping one lecture on Monday to go to a Hockey game. At least that keeps me happy. ;D

I also promise to catch up with all your blogs. I can't wait to see what you've all been up to. :) 

Have an amazing weekend :)

  4. Dear Baiba, I so like your attitude toward life and the photographs you've included here. It is indeed lovely in Latvia. Your being positive about life is going to take you far. Truly. I'm so glad you are being patient with yourself and with the school. And . . . an "A" in philosophy! Wow. No wonder you sound so philosophical!!!!! Peace.

  5. Hi Baiba, I see both Dee, Fishducky, and Janie Junebug have left comment here. They are wise and wonderful women. I'm from Sweden and I have lived in the US for 50 years, so I'm pretty ancient. I do remember having the same feelings of impatience, wanting to get on with my life when I was young. I am glad you are working on staying positive and staying in school. It's so important. I don't now if you have heard about the book, The Dogs of Riga, by the Swedish author, Henning Mankell. He's written a series of detective novels that have been a great success around the world. I just saw the BBC TV series version of the book and that reminded me of your name. That was the love of the main character's life, Baiba. Is is a common name? Glad you signed up to follow my blog, I will do the same now and follow yours.

    1. Hi Inger,
      I have heard of the book, but I haven't read it yet :)
      and there are about 7000 Baibas in Latvia, so it's not the most common name :)

      thanks for following my blog :) I'm looking forward to start a new friendship :)

  6. Thanks for your comment. We don't have Halloween in Sweden either, but when I grew up there we used to dress up as witches and go around and beg for candy on the Thursday before Easter. I don't know if they still do that.

    The book is much longer and really involved. It was not one of my favorites of this series, but I have friends who thought it was the best. Check it out if you get a chance, with school and all, you must be busy.
