My next big thing: Travelling to KOREA!

By: Z.

In just two days I am leaving to experience the most exciting and frightening trip of my life. I have received a scholarship to spend one semester studying in Gimhae, South Korea. I have never been away from home (home meaning Slovakia) for more than a week or so.... So yeah, spending four months on the other side of the world is quite unimaginable. But at the same time I am really looking forward to it. I kind of see it as my next big thing bc these past few months I have been doing nothing exciting :-) 

I'm gonna make sure to document my whole trip right here on our blog as well as on our instagram and my twitter acc (@followzuzu)... 

Travel blogging has always seemed exciting to me and I get to try it out which I feel extremely happy about. I am very luck that I got that chance...
Wish me luck and see you in the next post which will be from Korea! ^^

Thinking out loud: being single

By: Z.


Sometimes, living life gets hard to do. Especially when you feel like you're missing out on something.
Well, they say you can't miss what you never had and I agree. I'm 21yo and I have never been in a relationship. I don't know what it's like so I cannot really miss it, can I? 

??? Naturally, I often think about the reasons why I am still single with no prospect of it changing. Am I too picky? Am I not pretty enough? Am I spoiled by the books I've read, movies I've watched or songs I've listened to and am looking for the perfect match? Or am I simply not meeting the right people? It's hard to tell, really. I don't know.

But what I do know is that even though I am open to the possibility of finding a boyfriend I really do not miss it. I don't really mind being single because I got used to it. After 21 years of leading a life without a sign of romance, you could probably say that I adapted. No, not having a boyfriend doesn't bother me. 

The scary part is the PROSPECT. I'm speaking about the prospect of loneliness. Judging by my experience and just life in general- how can I be sure that I will find that special someone who is going to want to be with me? Someone who will ask me out and I will want to say YES? I just simply don't know~ and that's the part that sucks. 
I have never loved a boy before and I don't know if I will ever meet somebody to love. 

“Why haven't I got a husband and children?"
 mused Greta Garbo to the Dutchess of Windsor, 
"I never met a man I could marry.”

So if you ask me if I am getting depressed or sad because I am single then NO, I am not. But there are these dark moments in my life when I keep thinking about the future and I fear that it will never change. And that is quite disturbing...

Just a little something

By: Z.

Lessons of the week:

I love my friends <3 
No matter how you feel, always treat the ones around you nicely.
Everyone has issues. I am not the only one.
For every thing you hate, find something you love.
I miss summer and running outside...
Shopping is my new best friend :-D
I wanna live my days so I can look back and smile, not cry or be happy they're over.
I like being creative but am never really doing anything creative.

I wanna go to Canada real bad.
Stressing about things I can't change is useless. Yet, I still do it :-/ Help. 

But despite all of my problems and stressful situations, I try staying positive. And although it didn't use to work, I think I'm getting better at it :-) *thumbs up* to myself.
