LET'S READ COSMOPOLITAN

SEPTEMBER 2015 EDITION

Let's start a new mini series when I discuss a subject from Cosmopolitan magazine, shall we?


I have a huge collection of Cosmo magazines, I have been buying it for 3 or even 4 years. I used to collect magazines called Joy, but then they stopped making them, so I decided to buy Cosmo, because I love reading magazines. I love to read about fashion and celebrities and mostly about traveling and to be honest I get very inspired for its articles about blogging and being successful. 

For this month's edition, I picked an article called LIFE IS NOT A RACE.

The reason I have chosen this particular article is because I think the problem is quite common among people nowadays. Girls are jealous of other girls, friends are competing about success and I just simply think that it can't bring as much good than, it can and probably will, bad.

❝You don't need others to tell you, you are okay!

Let's first start with this quotation. I think that it is great to have friends and boyfriend and family, who tell you that you look good or that you're doing great, but you can definitely live a better life if you don't need their signature about that. Being a strong and independent woman means that you know what success feels like and try to accomplish as many great things in life as you can. And stalking a more successful friend is not one of those. Being jealous destroyed one too many friendships.  If you are the best version of yourself, then you should know that being happy for others is a really great ability that not many people are capable of.

IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU
Hopefully you are decided that you will use your envy as a motivation to become a better you and stop comparing yourself to others and it is time to acknowledge one important thing: whatever you do in life is for you. Don't do things to fit in or to be admired, do things to admire yourself. Don't fit the crowd, but find your own path of being happy in your skin. But to accomplish that state of mind is important to focus and just move out of your comfort zone, think about your wishes, not that others wish for you and just spit in your hands and begin. Please don't literally spit in your hands, that would be disgusting. The point is, the better you are, the better you will feel and the less you will feel the need to compare yourself to others.

USE ENVY TO REALLY BE AMAZING
Maybe stalking people online will make you depressed (I know I had a lot of problems because I stalked actresses, which I am not ashamed of anymore and it became a great lesson), but you can make the best out of it and truly accept that envy as a friendly reminder to try a little better in life. Be happy if others are doing great, have great romance, incredibly hot looking boyfriends, money, travels and if they do things you always wished for, but never did. If you use that envy in that sort of way it is great, but don't let it suck the life out of you, trust me, you don't want to end up with a full stash of chips, spending all of your time watching TV and self-pitty. When you feel that you aren't doing so great, use it as a red light and just make yourself do it, is as simple as that and it can change your life for the best possible.

In Cosmopolitan magazine there is a list of things to NOT think of and follow, because they are 100% wrong, because life is what YOU make it:

There are rare people in the world who are lucky, everyone else has to work their ass off.
Life is hard - we get a few amazing moments out of it, but bad things are not spared to anyone.
Ideal partner does not exist, amazing love usually ends up as tragedy, you have to really adapt to other person in marriage, marriage is the death of romance, kids change everything...
You have to go to work to earn money for living - only rare and lucky people can make it as an artists.
Money is bad and the people who have a lot of it, are all bad.

Thank you for reading.

EXPECT A COLLAB

EXPECT A COLLAB

Hello everybody & welcome back to my blog!

It has been quite some time for me to blog daily, but now I can finally say that I have some free time. I had my last exam yesterday and now I can spend another month relaxing. Today I am in my bed, not in my regular environment - desk with a big coffee mug and chocolate cookies and a great view. I decided to go big or go home today. That is why I decided to speak honestly about this, which is kinda hard, because when I usually speak from the heart, I get judged for my own opinion on my own blog, and I feel that this is a problem. This blog is mine, my own and I build this whole thing by myself, I don't owe anything to anyone, and therefore I would like to say that is incredibly rude from some people to try to put me down and just tell me what is not a good subject, because that is my decision to decide what I want to talk about. If you are too young to read what I have to say, don't read it, if you are not mature enough to accept different opinions, then leave here. This is my special place and everyone is invited. I gladly accept any mail and opinion, but do not have the guts to tell me I shouldn't speak about things I want to speak about. If you want, you can make your own blog and put as much effort in it and then write your own opinion and discuss your own subjects. 


Now lets go back to the business, because I have a lot of things to share them with you. 

↣ I have become a red head. Long story short, I picked the wrong color for my hair and now I am trying to work it. At first I was so disappointed with it, because I wanted strawberry blonde color, and it turned out completely different from my expectations, but then I just rolled with it. I mean I am not really happy with it, but I don't mind anymore.

↣ As you read before, yesterday I had my last exam and I must admit that I am pretty happy with the way it turned out. I studied a lot and I think I will be okay. I think that I will finally be accepted to college. Fingers crossed.

↣ I have a huge obsession on Harley Quinn. You might not know who that is, let me explain it to you real quick and then I might write a post only about Harley Quinn. She is a DC's character and she is basically known as Joker's girlfriend. She worked at Arkham and Joker was her patient, but he manipulated her and she helped him escape and they had a love/hate relationship. Very violent, but very interesting. Like I said, I just might write a post about that.

↣ I have some problems with my relationship as well, and I just wanted to state that out, so you will know why I am kinky a bit and why I don't want to write about relationship.

↣ This blog will host another blogger in a short period of time hopefully and I am really excited. You know how I feel about collabs, I am just so excited. I am more than happy to promote some people that are good at writing and deserve a little more recognition and besides I love meeting new people, so hopefully you will like it.

↣ Expect a post about my experience with donating some of my stuff.

↣ If you would like to collab or just meet me in person, go for a coffee and chat, you can, because I decided that this month I am up to meet a lot of you and make the best of it.

HELLO, HI!

četrtek, 20. avgust 2015

HELLO, HI!

LITTLE NOTE: I just wanted to state the fact that I am changing this blog a lot! And yes, I know it's annoying that you come here every week and see a different pattern and different posts, but to be honest. I am trying to figure out what I like. I know that right now this blue-nude thing that is going on is not very pretty, but I just thought that since I dont have an inspiration, I will at least leave you with that. I guess it is better than to leave you with nothing. 

I am sure than I will figure out what I want and like untill I manage to pass MATURA. Speaking of the devil and all the devilish things that comes with it. I have decided what I will study again. After this crazy month of pure sadness and just un obnoxious obsession with DC's villains, I finally have an answer you have all been dying to know, I am sure.

But to properly answer your question, I will have to explain how hard this decision(s) were for me. I was kinda stuck with the feeling of sadness, when I figured out that because I didn't pass all the spring finals, I might not get to the college I signed up for. I will have to re-write Geography & Sociology in summer and find a college, that will accept me. While I was on a college spree, I had to deal with the fact that all I really want to do is being an actress. It was quite hard for me, because I really didn't want to go to AGRFT (which is the only acting school in our country), and I didn't have any other choice but to go some other country and persue my dreams, which was kinda shutered by my family and boyfriend reminding me that I am not rich and I can't afford to pay even for a year of acting college in UK. I was looking for scholarships and anything, just anything, when I was put on a cold ice. I realised I can't stay home and not go to University, and go to work, to at least try to make some money, because my mom won't let me. She wants me to go to college. Period. I couldnt stand a chance. So, while I was stuck only with an idea and dreams, I had to make a decision. And I looked all the colleges in Ljubljana (because it is where I live) and the more I was looking, the less I knew what I want. I went back and forth and nothing came up. But then I just woke up one day and decided what I will study. And before I reveal what is that, I will tell you why I decided for this subjects. First of all, they are all free, they wont take all my time and they will accept me with my points, which will be around 70 (I think out of 100). I wanted to work while studying, so I will make enought money to leave this silly country for my acting dreams. I looked up for two jobs, that will be perfect for me. One is working for my favourite place on earth (which is our cinema - it will be a dream come true) or an animal shop, which is also my dream job. I am determined to make money for acting.

This is what I will study:

1. Archaeoloy (which was my first choice the last time, but I am not sure I will get it, because its hard to get in)
2. Being a school teacher for majors: Math & Physics
3. Being a school teacher for majors: Math & something I haven't decided yet (funny, because today I have to sign up for it, right haha...no?)

Surprised? Yeah, I know what you mean. But I guarantee you that you could not possibly be more schocked than me & my family. I love kids, I have 3 sisters and a brother. SO basically I decided for something that I will at least enjoy a bit, if acting wont work out for me. But lets not be pessimistic, because if I don't make it as an actress, I still don't have a plan B, I don't know what I will do even if I choose majors to study that are not acting, and it may look like plan B, but to be honest, I am made to be an actress.

As much as my boyfriend was a downer about my dreams, he still promised we will move to England in exactly two years, when we will be able to pay for it at least. I know what youre thinkin, he promised me to move to UK this year, but I guess it is just not possible. It was an honest promise this time. And if in two years there will be a post named 'I am not going to UK' I allow you to kick me in the ass and tell me what my dreams are again.

Lets talk about something else: WHY ON EARTH DO WE HAVE TO DECIDE ABOUT WHAT WILL OUR JOB BE AND WHAT TO STUDY FOR THAT JOB AT THE AGE OF 19?!

At my age, full of confusion and just finding out what I am good at, I can barely decide what I want to eat for dinner when my parents are away. I know how to take care of myself, and how to live and stuff like that, but I am completely sure that I am not sure if being this young and deciding what will you do with your life for the rest of your youth, is right? I mean some girls are basically getting pregnant and thinking about marriage, but not me. I belong to the group of people who will live in confusion untill I am probably at leats 25. The only fact that I am sure of is that I will have 5 dogs, big house, many tortoises and a ferret. Oh yeah, and that I will be dating Jan. Everything else, accept from the fact that I want to be an actress and I have no idea how to make that possible, is just a blur.

It only took me 2 cups of coffee, my boyfriend's T-shirt, Harley Quinn fanmade video for inspiration, cloudy weather and a pause from studying to write this post. I am doing great! Hi5 ME!

Do I look like I have everything under control? Yeah, thought so.
