DEAR 2018

You have been hell of a ride! I think I have never had such a diverse and adventurous year in my life. Because of all these events, this year flew by so fast. 2018 started with something very sad, difficult and laborious. This incident made me stronger. Then I quit my job around April. I wanted to see the world, specifically Southeast Asia which was my dream for a long time. So I just made it happen. The second thought was "Shit! How am I going to afford this?". Sure, I have been saving but the resignation was kind of an impulse decision since I was in such a grind - with my job, my life, myself. I was then taking a bartending job at one of my favorite bars in Zürich where I jobbed after work and on weekends. That experience was rewarding and I would stand behind bars anytime again! Trough that bar job (and the tip money) I was able put some more money aside. Also I had to look after my apartment - I had to find someone taking over it while I am abroad. So that was one kind of a hassle. But the girl who I chose to be in there right now is a gem. After I managed to sort most things out I was starting to meet friends to say goodbye. Looking back, I should have probably just throw a farewell party, haha. Speaking about party, I forgot to mention how awesome and enriched my 26th birthday in March was! I didn't expect so many people who I love and admire showed up at this little bar. This late summer I met someone special. I, or we, thought it was love but to be honest I think it was just too overhasty. Also the fact, that I will leave the country was not really meant for our relationship to last. This person still has a special place in my heart and we are still in good terms. This person was around in one of my most stressful times - working two jobs, planning my travels, packing, moving, cleaning my apartment, busy with meeting friends. Anyway, I think we are better off in separate ways. Ever since I am traveling, my mind is more clear. I like the distance and the anonymity I have every time I visit a new place. But now being in Saigon, I feel like I belong here (for a limited time at least). I just had a job interview for a position I dreamed about. If this works out, I will definitely tell you more. Sometimes life is so unexpected! All I wanted was to travel. And now I'm here, sitting at L'Usine sipping a rosé (reward for a good job interview) and thinking about how my life would change if I'll get that job. This year is not over yet, I feel like there is more to come!
