6 years in Australia!🎈

6 years in Australia!🎈

I can’t believe it’s been that long since I’ve arrived here, on a 6 months visa, looking for some fun and maybe an idea for the future. And when it was the time to leave, I called my mum and asked how much loose change they have, because I refuse to go home. Little did I know that I will be staying for another 5 years

6 years full of adventures, dancing, drinking, laughter, ups and downs, tears of joy, tears of heartache… After all that, and 4 different certificates and diplomas later, let me tell you: Nothing worth fighting for comes easy. Motivation helps, but won’t be enough. Support system is essential. Yourself – self confidence, family and friends.

If I had breakdowns, or wanted to pack and piss off home, it was not because I was missing home or I couldn’t cope with my workload and sudden lifestyle change.

In fact, first year and a half I’ve spent partying, socializing, living with $7 left on my account and still being the happiest chick on the planet. But then I had to move on and move out from my uncle’s safe haven; all inclusive with food and rent. It hurt for a while, but oh dear, I finally realized what struggle is. Budgeting, planning ahead and self control. Things like thinking twice before taking a taxi from CBD to Joondalup or talking to randoms on the street. Let me just say – Nor it’s cheap or safe.

Surprisingly I had a lot more money after moving out and starting sharing a house with a friend. Long story short I had some money saved up for emergencies and extra occasions and few hundreds for rent and bills; whereas and the rest would evaporate in smokes or got drowned in booze. Happy vibe happy life. Carefree. Not a worry in the world. Oh, apart from attendance at school, maybe. Sorry Mum! ( Never a keen student )….. 😉

It’s finally here! ♪

It’s finally here! ♪

The idea of blogging was born long time ago. Since I can remember, I always enjoyed writing and sharing my point of view with others. But as my life was changing every day for the last 6 years, I often seemed too busy or too uninterested to actually take it up.

I no longer feel that way so here it is, my first post on a brand new blog. It will take me a while to wrap my head around how to do it properly but i promise you won’t be disappointed. At this point I am only talking to myself but I hope it will change soon.

My main focus here will be on what’s best in my life and around me at the moment, as well as sharing ideas for healthy and happy living. I actually have a whole list of topics I’d like to talk about, but can’t do everything at once 🙂

Get amongst it!

ps : Originally I had prepared a polish version of that post, but after a consultation with my professor Ms Idzik, I’ve decided to stick to English. I offer translation if needed (Mum, you need to learn English so I can’t help you haha), but I’m sure it won’t be an issue for many.
