All the magic in December…

So, this December is getting better and better. I started it with being ill and all, but it still beats being ill for my actual birthday.
This year everything is going as planned *knocking on wood, as we do when we don’t want something good to end* and even being at school isn’t so boring as usual. Today we decorated the classrooms and it’s soooo preeeetty- it makes everything more cheerful.


Yesterday I turned 18- yay me, I made it! It was a perfect day, we even went swimming at P.E and I love water, like a little mermaid, so that was a healthy and pleasant way to spend two hours of doing sports. Anyways, then I had two hours of Math (not so charming) and two hours of Psychology, but I couldn’t wait to get home.
My mum made tortillas, because she knows how much I love Mexican food and then we drank some champagne- fancy, right :P


Later in the afternoon my grandpa (x2), my grandma and grandpa’s wife came over and we had tons of fun and shared some stories about my childhood, of course.


Then I opened my gifts and it felt even better than Christmas…


I got two birthday cakes, of which I expected none. One was from my dad and mum and one from my best friend, who means the world to me.



What I wished for, is a secret… but I wish a merry Christmas and a beautiful and magical year of 2015 to all of you, darlings!


Turning 18 tomorrow

So, as you can see from the title… I am turning 18 tomorrow.
Being 18 in Slovenia means you can get your driver license, drink alcohol (which I won’t do, mum&dad :p) and stuff like that; it’s like being 21 in USA, I suppose. As I already told you, I love birthdays, even though this means I am getting older. My opinion will probably change with years, I am aware of that darlings!
So, 17.12 is a very poetic date to me, probably because it’s my birthday. Mom said that a lot of powerful people are born on the 17th, but I don’t know where she read that. It’s definitely true, though.
Here is something about people born on the 17th, I got it on
You are highly ambitious, and blessed with excellent business and financial instincts. Your approach to business is original, creative and daring. You are highly independent.

You have very sound judgment. You are an excellent manager and organizer. You are gifted with the ability to see the larger picture, and, remarkably, how the details come into play. You are efficient and can handle large projects.

You are self-confident and have high expectations of yourself. Interestingly, the expectations of others stimulate you, especially if they doubt you can pull off what you intend to do. You tend to be dramatic, especially with money. You have a need for status and may show off the fruits of your labor with an impressive car or house.

Do you what’s also awesome about birthdays? You are like one of the Kardashians for one day–> you literally get paid just for existing. So hands up for birthdays, yaaay!
The only sad thing about tomorrow is that Wednesday is the day my classes start very early… and they last the longest. But, anyways, even school beats being ill on your birthday, as I have been for three years in a row now, so I won’t complain.
On Friday I have a birthday party, which is a must if you are turning 18. There will be about 30 people there and I don’t imagine my birthday or in fact, my life, without them. :) Today I should study quite hard, because in the following days there won’t be any time, so Math, here I come.
Have I ever mentioned my feelings towards Mathematics before? Well, not today.

My December is perfect this year. I made about 10 Christmas cards for my dearest ones and they were all very surprised and grateful and that just makes my heart jump. I love surprising people! In a good way, of course.

I wish you a pleasant day (and a perfect tomorrow),

Breathe it all in

I am the one amongst friends, who takes the longest time to put her seat belt on (I got the inspiration for this blog post while I was putting my seat belt on in my grandpa’s car and my cousin was already fastened for minutes and I was still trying hahah). You know, always there are people sitting there, their seat belts fastened and all, everything is quiet and ready to go… And there is me, still in the middle of the process. People (very kindly, may I add) say that “I am the kind of person that takes time… for everything”. Well, I admit. I am definitely a slow eater and everyone is staring at me after half an hour in the school cafeteria, because I am still chewing and enjoying my meal. I am also the one that gets out of the car after 5 minutes of being parked into the driveway, because it just takes some time to grab all of my stuff and crawl from the comfy and warm seat inside. And this is where I want to state: I AM NOT SLOW, I am a dreamer!
That’s a much nicer adjective, if you want to describe me as a person who takes time for her activities. Thank you in advance for using it. :P
I find it really interesting, being someone who does things slowly and calmly most of the time, watching others- people are constantly rushing nowadays abd that’s one of the reasons we don’t cheris the little things anymore. I recommend you to try… Just one day, try to enjoy your meal and while driving, don’t shut your brains off, because it’s a routine for you and you want to get it over with. Look around. Enjoy the sun or admire the magic of the winter time; breathe it all in. You can still be effective, hardworking and organized when it comes to it; it does not mean you are lazy or slow if you take some time for finding something beautiful in things we nowadays find very much routined. I recommend… Live your life like a child. They are always interested in everything!

A warm December hug,

December spirit

So, it’s December and I am once again shocked how many things happen in just one year. 12 month ago, my life was completely different and I was much more of a child than I am now- even though I am still quite childish at times :P
But the things is I can’t really feel that Christmas spirit, because the weather is awful. I haven’t seen sun for a month now (literally) and yeah, I am ill, as always in December. Thank god this year I am one week ahead of my schedule, because for the last three years, I spent my birthday in bed with a fever. I am planning to stay at home for as long as possible, because everyone at school are coughing and sneezing and half of them even have a fever and my immune system is really weak at the moment… and I am planning to be as fit and healthy as possible for my 18th birthday.
I know that nothing will change drastically now, but still, as a December child, I feel like am always waiting for my next birthday for ages… And I also loooove birthdays. A lot of people hate them and they don’t even want other people to know it’s their birthday, but I kind of don’t get that. Sure, I also sit in the corner awkwardily when people sing “Happy Birthday” to me and when relatively unknown people shake my hands and wish me all the best, but I cherish every single thing they do to make your special day better. It’s a funny tradition, actually, if you think of it in that way–> celebrating the day you were born, like you are a special somebody haha. But for someone you are special and I think it’s cute when people remember it’s your day without a Facebook alert- I know for sure that a few people in my life know how much birthdays mean to me and they always try to make it a great day. Well, the last three years I was crying in my bed, because I felt so weak and I couldn’t even get my own tea or eat a cake, but still… I have feelings for birthdays :3
Right now I am drinking a rather untasteful tea, but it’s healthy, and I was studying Philosophy, because I have a test tomorrow; but I am only going to school to pass the test, then I am going straight back home. Thinking about wearing a mask, like the Japanese haha. Nope, just kidding. Oh, and there’s that–> me and my best friend were planning to go to a Bryan Adams concert on Friday, but I can’t, because I won’t be completely healthy by then and I don’t want to risk it. I wish we could, but anyways…
I hope there will be some snow soon, because I want that Christmas spirit. And I am burning all of the cinnamon candles I have left and listening to Christmas songs, there’s just one thing still missing. Okay, maybe two- my health and the snow. Well, we can’t have everything, right?
Besides that I am in a quite happy place now. I am definitely much more happier than I was at this exact time ago, when I was really at my bottom… And I wish all the best to all of you and try to enjoy what you are doing, because that’s the best choice you can make in life :)
This week I will probably make some Christmas cards, because I presume I’ll be really bored. Hahah. I am not that much of an art person, you know… But I’ll try my best :)

Much love to everyone,

What’s not to love about Segovia?

Hola! :)
Sooo… Lately I felt like I have been home for ages and I just wanted to see something different than my dear city or my (not so dear) school city. That’s one of the reasons why my mum and me decided to take a trip to Segovia, a BEAUTIFUL city, about 100 kilometres north-west of Madrid. I had been to Spain a few times before, I even spent a day in Segovia, but I only got a glimpse of it and it hadn’t impressed me that much as this time. I am a history freak and I get goose bumps when I get near beautiful, historic buildings, covered in ivy.
I have to say that I feel like the sky in Segovia is the bluest I had ever seen before. I was once again shocked when we arrived to the aqueduct and I took a picture of the sky behind that magnificent piece of construction.


Almost all of the houses in Segovia seem old and charming to me and there is no reason not to love it all. I also love the atmosphere and the sound of Spanish language, floating around me.


Like, I was just casually strolling around and this building came along… I mean, I don’t even like architecture in general, but everything seemed amazing to me in Segovia hahah.


We were staying in a relatively cheap hostal on a great location, but it was still so cute and clean. And the atmosphere when you get out of the room in the evening and Spanish people decide that it’s time to hit the streets… Amazing! :)



Well, as you can see, I fell in love. There are just cities and people that touch you and charm you :)

Have a pleasant evening,


It has dawned on me…

Hey guys! :)
I have to admit that I picked up that phrase from the title of this post at today’s English class- yay, I actually learned something useful in school today :p
And what has dawned on me?
Well, first of all, I have only about 5 months left of highschool classes and about 6 months until my final paper (matura, as it’s called in Slovenia, of course). This realisation is in fact scary, but also quite exciting if I think about all the things that lie ahead of me.
This year school is not that difficult, I feel that most of the time we are just preparing for matura and we are just reviewing a lot of the old stuff, really. I have a lot of time for hobbies, so I finally can read a lot… The thing I’ve hated most about higschool so far is that I couldn’t read all that much, because it was too tiresome to start a book after spending so much time studying behind the desk.
I’ve also started a healthier lifestyle and I am feeling really revitalized- I really let myself go this summer and instead of trying for that perfect bikini body, I ate lot… and did a whole lot of nothing. So since this October (I started on the 7th hahah) I have been jogging and doing some strenght training. I also try to eat as little sugar as possible- I only eat sweets on weekends and when I have a really bad day.
There’s also one big thing happening right now; my dad is coming home on the 26th! We are picking him up in Vienna and I really can’t wait to spend some father-daughter time with him… after about 4 months. Also, the chapter of Japan has finished for real now I and I realized… well, let’s rather say it dawned on me, that I am never going back to Fukuoka, at least not with my family. Japan, even though I have only spent max one month there, has truly changed me. I fell in love with the city, Starbucks, dad’s apartment, the fact I had literally one minute to the beach and all the wonderful people I got a change to meet there. My heart breaks a little knowing that I won’t spend my next summer in Fukuoka, living carelessly, 11.000 km away from all the thing and people at home. Staying there was probably the only time I was completely happy and not aware of all the worries I had left at home… and this feeling is also something I’ll miss a lot. Of course, there are a lot of possibilities to go back one day, because of the wonderful friends I got to meet there, but it will never be the same. Oh yes, I am feeling quite nostalgic.



A big thank you to all of you that made my stay in Japan so magical :)

A very sweet thank you from a Starbucks employee :p
