5 Memories From 2016

I was going through the drafts I have never published on this blog and I found this one. 5 memories from the year 2016. I know, I know. It is almost the summer of 2018 so this is super late. Better to get used to this because I have never been someone good with deadlines I give for myself… But hey I have already written this so here are some exceptional memories from my year 2016. I hope you enjoy!

1. First night alone in my first own home. I didn’t have any furniture so I had to sleep on the floor. I only had two blankets and a pillow. It was freezing and too quiet. All I was able to see was the streetlight outside of my window and the beautiful sky. Still, this is not a bad memory but rather a happy one. All I can remember is the amazing feeling of living on my own… New city, new school and me totally alone. It started as an adventure.

2. Completing my first Fiverr gig. And especially getting paid for the first travel article I wrote. Even now after doing this as my full-time job and writing hundreds of paid travel articles for different websites I can’t describe the feeling of earning money with my own writings. This is definitely the thing I want to do with my life. And I will never forget this memory, the unbelievable feeling that someone found my writing good enough to pay for it.

3. Road trip around France’s coastline. Me and two older ladies drove around France’s sunny seaside cities. We left in the early morning and returned after dark. Once again life showed me that traveling and adventuring to new places is my passion.

4. My first school day. I was scared to death because being social has never been my strength. Starting school after a long gap year seemed like the worst decision on that morning. I was staying at a cute hostel and decided to escape there on every break because I didn’t know what to do. It felt like starting the first grade all over again. Later on, I found a lot of friends but also dropped out because school is just not for me.

5. Realizing that my travel blog may be kind of “big deal”. It wasn’t just one moment and I haven’t yet fully understood it. But there have been many moments when someone says something or everytime someone comments on my blog that I realize how my blog has grown out of my hands. I mean I would have never guessed at the start of the year when I wrote my first post that at the end of the year I would have over thousand readers. Isn’t that crazy? (Yes, even now in 2018 with several blogs and thousands of readers this is still crazy…)

Do you have any crazy memories from 2016 (or later years) that you can remember? Or are you like me who forgets posts like this and the publishes them years later? Like always all comments are more than welcome!

10 Reasons I Hate Living Alone

Few weeks ago on 10 Things Sunday I shared with you the 10 Reasons I Love Living Alone so I though it would be good to also talk about the bad sides of living alone. So here is my list of the negatives of living on your own.

1.Feeling lonely and being alone too much. When you come from lively household being suddenly alone in your own home feels strange. First it’s all fun and games but after a while it gets a little lonely.

2.No one takes care of you. You can mix up your sleeping schedule and eat unhealthy without anyone intervening. Also if you get sick you have to deal with it by yourself.

3.Doing all the adult stuff. Paying bills, repairing things and taking care of your home. It is surprisingly hard.

4.Having to do all the household chores by yourself. Cleaning, washing dishes, doing laundry, etc.

5.Being scared. If you are like me there is a lot of things to get scared when living alone. Murderers, clowns, thieves, anything abnormal like ghosts.

6.No one is waiting for you. When you return home, no one is welcoming you. No one knows if you get safely back to home because no one is there waiting for you.

7.Remembering the keys. This is really hard one for me. Only way for me to get in if I forget my keys is to call the janitor and it costs a lot of money.

8.Cooking. You have to come up with healthy varied diet by yourself. If you are as bad at kitchen as I am you know this one is nightmare… I haven’t yet burned down the whole building, so props to me!

9.Being paranoid what your neighbors are thinking about you and if you are being too loud. What if they hear me singing alone and think I’m crazy?

10. Always accidentally running out of the important household stuff like toilet paper, batteries and shampoo. Just yesterday I unintentionally destroyed my last toilet paper roll (don’t ask how that happened! I was cleaning, okay?) and had to run to the shop just before it’s closing time to buy more.

 

So these are my 10 bad things of living alone. What things do you dislike or like living alone? And is it just me or do you struggle with “normal” things like cleaning, cooking and shopping?

I hope you are having an amazing day!
With love,

10 Reasons I Love Living Alone

I think this is going to be new thing to make me write more! So every Sunday list of 10 things. You will get to know what I love, hate or just don’t understand in this world. Funny, right?

Today I wanted to share list of 10 reasons I love living alone (and probably the list of 10 things why my neighbors hate me…) I have now lived three months on my own so it was easy to made this list. Enjoy!

 

1.I can have late night movie marathon if I want without someone complaining I should be sleeping.

2.Cooking noodles at 4am and watching cat videos from youtube.

3.Sleeping where ever you want in the apartment. Sofa, kitchen floor, under my bed, where ever! 

4.No one is eating my food, touching my stuff or stealing my things.

5.Peaceful quietness around the clock. (Expect when my neighbors decide to sing too loudly in the shower…)

6.Spending all day long in my pajamas and walking around in underwear.

7.Dancing and singing as loudly as I can. No one can hear me so no reasons to be embarrassed. 

8.Being my messy self without anyone minding. (Well expect when someone decides to visit and I have to somehow clean the whole apartment in seconds…)

9.Feeling free fully capable adult. Even if I probably shouldn’t feel that way because I currently live with microwave and school food.

10.All the possibilities living alone makes. I can invite anyone I want to visit me. Be awake and do anything I want at any hour of the day. Go out whenever I want or stay inside the whole day. Just do anything without other people judging me.

 

Why do you love or hate living alone? Do you disagree or agree with my points?

And like usually remember to check out my “real” blog GoTravelGolbal. And if you want you can also follow me on Instagram and Twitter.

Busy Life

I have been so busy lately!

In the last few weeks I have…

Exhanged first time guest posts. Check my post HERE

Did my first translation gigs in Fiverr.

Moved to new city and now live alone for the first time on my own.

Went to school again to study bussiness.

Got finally my own domain for my travel blog. www.gotravelglobal.com

Try to make new friends but still failing badly in it…

Promised to write post every Wednesday to my travel blog but didn’t have time for that.

Travelled with my friend to Estonia. And planned too many new trips to do this year.

Have been staying too much inside doing nothing and being scared of the new city around me.

Lived week without microwave or over.

Drank too much cheap tea and tried to ask tarot cards to tell me my future.

Survived my first weeks living alone. Haven’t hurt myself (or my neighbours) yet!

 Been total failure in life but still somehow got trought it and found some confidence in myself.
So this has been my life lately. How have you been?

With love,

Viivi Severina
