A sweet escape

I got out of my funk that I've been in for the last couple of weeks. And all it took was a little weekend getaway.

Since it was my sisters and friends birthdays we decided to go to Tallinn again. I love that city. I challenged my memory and it turns out it doesn't suck as mush as I thought it did ;D I actually remembered some places and things from the last time. And we even got everywhere we needed by a bus! which is surprising cause you cannot trust me with these kind of things ;D

Anyway, the weekend was perfect. We used CouchSurfing for accommodation again, only this time it didn't feel like CS. For me it was simply staying at friends house :) Nice talks and couple of drinks at night was just what we needed. Except for Milli Malika. That drink I didn't need at all nor will I ever need it! :D But I'm glad I tried it. Every experience is an experience ;D

I also really enjoyed watching Evelins presentation about her Bucket list. I think it's amazing when you know what you want and you do everything to reach your goals and dreams. So, Evelin, if you're reading this - I will steal a part of your idea! ;D I also want to make such a list so that I have something to reach for. I think this list is what keeps you motivated and that is why I want to try it too. I hope you don't mind. :)  A few things on that list will be similar to yours like countries to visit etc. but the others will include raccoons so they will be completely different ;D

Even if I spent only 24 hours in Tallinn, being there really made me happy and relaxed and for this short period of time I completely forgot about all the problems and stress and just had fun! And it made me realize that life truly can be full of fun and surprises if you let yourself enjoy it :)

And I also wanted to wish you all a little belated Happy Thanksgiving :) 

Have a wonderful day, everyone :)

P.S.-I also promise to catch up with all your amazing blogs. I just haven't had the time to write or read any. :)

I need help! All heroes please apply.

I've been in a funk lately and it's quite hard for me to get out. 

As much as I'm trying to stay positive, there is so much shit going on and I can't take it anymore.
There is no more idiotic education system in the whole world like in Latvia. And now, due to a reform in the system, I will probably have to figure out what to do next year, cause my program will probably be shut down. I get that some changes are needed, but why is it needed to mess up everything for those, who have already started something? 

I'm devastated right now, cause if this happens, what the hell am I going to do? I'll have waisted a YEAR of my life. For nothing. And the thought of that just makes me angry. 

I know that everything can still change, cause it's not the final word. But yet, I see no hope in all this and the stress is killing me. I can only be positive for this long. And it scares me to be this grey person. Cause I don't want to be like this. But I can't seem to snap out of it... I seriously need a friendly help. All heroes please apply!
