I'm back! ...kinda...

There is nothing more dangerous to my mind than having too much of free time. Being home alone all the time with no job and nothing to do is driving me crazy and I start to doubt myself and the whole universe.

I quit university. That program was way too easy for me  and when I caught myself correcting my English professor, that was when I realized I needed something different. Something more challenging than this. 

I got accepted to Coventry University. But due to several circumstances I won't be going there. Instead I will try to apply for another university in Latvia for Translation program. 

I would much rather do nothing at all but still get paid, lol. But I want to be successful in life so I really have no other choice than studying. Now I'd like to say that everything sucks, since I didn't get a summer job and I'm surrounded by some shady and mega-arrogant people. But then I would sound like a whiny little creature. And I don't want to be that. I just have too much free time and with that comes really bad and doubtful thoughts about me, my future, the world in general and everything around me. But I'm not saying I'm bored. I shall never be bored, since my mind itself is a crazy place. I'm filling my time by reading books, learning German and getting on my cat and dog's nerves. 
                   [Now you know How! :D ]

I also miss blogging. A lot! But for the last couple of months I found myself completely unable to write even a sentence. My life is just too boring to write about it, lol. ;D

But there have been several happy events since my last post. I'm officially 20! It feels great to say it, cause 19 still counts as a teen. But 20 is a young adult :D 

I celebrated in Lithuania. Me and my sister went on a mini trip and saw some beautiful places [I will put some pictures at the end of this post]. I also passed all my exams and finished first year with great grades. Plus, I attended an extra course of Intercultural Communication which was led by a guest-professor from USA. That was interesting and I enjoyed learning in English. Since I enjoy English more than Latvian. I can't even remember when I last read a book in Latvian, lol. Anyway, the professor will be in Latvia again in July, and we already arranged a meeting to catch up with each other.

So for now I have nothing else to do but just hope to get accepted into university, read and relax. And I should really try to have some adventures during summer, otherwise I'll go nuts! I'll figure something out, so I have some stories to tell :)

That is all, for now.
Take care, everybody :)

[Cross Mountain]

[there are MORE than 100 000 crosses. No one knows how many exactly are there because, come on, who can count? And there are new ones added every day]

  1. You don't have to post on a regular basis--JUST POST!!

  2. Boring? Girl, I will show you boring... Look at that dog; the dog could have a blog ;0. Reading books & learning German isn't exactly just sitting around. Glad to see you are ok, & moving on(you are). ~Mary

    1. Thanks, Mary. And if my dog did have a blog, it would consist of complaints about me, lol.

      And since you didn't allow comments on your last post, I'll just write here - what an amazing post about your dad. Almost made me cry. It was so sweet! :)

  3. I can see why the dog might be annoyed. If you don't have anything to write about your present, then you can write about what you want in the future, and you can tell us about your past.


    1. He's annoyed, but he loves me anyway.
      And yes, you're right. I just have to figure How to write and what exactly about. Thanks Janie :)

  4. Nice to see you again. Cross Mountain is staggering.

    1. Thanks, Tony. Yeah, it is pretty weird and awesome.

  5. You better find something to do or your dog will leave home! Just kidding, of course. You know I am old now, but I so remember those feelings from when I was young. I think they are part of searching for the right path in life and then finding oneself sort of without direction and getting bored, but then it will pick up again. You will find your right place to study, your field of work, your guy, and so on. That will all happen. Meanwhile, that cross mountain is really interesting and weird at the same time. And, finally your photo is awesome! You are really beautiful.

    1. I sure hope I'll find all those things. Thank you so much, Inger :)

      And yeah the mountain is interesting and a bit weird, but I should have explained that it is a place where a long time ago some kids saw Mother Mary and since then, people have been going to that place and leaving a cross with a hope. And the legend says that if you visit that place and leave a cross, you will experience a miracle :)

  6. Poor dog! Do you let him dress you up?

    German is a hard language to earn, good luck with it. And good luck with finding a place at college; it looks like you are far too intelligent and restless to hang about wasting your time being bored.

    If you want to write, just do it. Sit down at your computer and start. Something will come out. Reading other people’s blogs is good for inspiration too; somebody will say something that sets you off.

    Why don’t you start by finding out all about the place with the crosses and tell your readers about it?

  7. Dear Baiba, all the suggestions given by those who commented seem good to me. How do they seem to you? Do they make sense and can you see yourself letting go of being bored and incurious and latch on to something that will excite you? I'm glad you've decided to learn German and I so hope you find a University that will challenge you.

    If writing a good sentence or description gives you delight, why not simply sit down and write whatever comes to mind. Just let your mind roam--the past, the present, the hopes for the future. A great book to get you started is "The Artist's Way" by Julia Cameron. I've used that book five times to jumpstart my writing. Peace.

  8. Dear Baiba, I forgot in my comment to thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving your own comment. That was sweet of you. Peace.
