Lately, I haven’t been blogging daily like I promised. But this time my reason is really valid. I have been keeping a secret from you. In fact, the last month has gone by me working on this secret project and let me tell you that it has turned me to trainwreck but also like a too excited child. Life is surprising.
So what’s my secret project?
This girl is going to have her own business!
Yeah, I’m not lying. Working as freelancer writer has gone so well recently that I have to start my own company to make everything easier. Sounds crazy. I’m 22 years old lost traveler and writer who still doesn’t know what she wants to do with her life. And soon I’m going to have my own business to maintain.
Is this the worst idea ever? Probably.
Have I ever let bad ideas stop me? No.
So, let’s see how this goes or how I fail!
It’s crazy to think that I’m almost living my dream. Most of the people of my age in Finland are still studying or working somewhere not so glamorous. On the other hand, I’m doing the things I have been dreaming for so long. My days will be full of writing. Mostly my own stories and then blog posts for others. I can work from anywhere. Maybe I will be next month in London, month after that in Tokyo and then just relax at home for a few weeks. Nothing is impossible anymore.
If you have been reading my blogs for some time, you may already know my story. But for others here is a small recap:
When I was still studying for my veterinary university exams, most of the free time I had during my prep school went by reading blogs. It was the first time I realized that some people really lived following their own rules. I wanted to be a nomad who travels around the world with only her laptop. After that year of studying, I ditched my life and went to Japan for three months.
Returning home from Japan was terrible for my mental health. A few months went by and I started my travel blog to survive the normal life. A few more terrible choices made because of the society’s expectations and escaping to my adventures around the world every possible moment later, I ended up picking my own path. Studying creative writing in open university, writing for others and having too many blogs on my own.
Now I’m here almost three years after my dream started on those dull days studying biology, chemistry, and physics aka all the things I hate.
The fun thing is that I feel like this is only the beginning!
