Today is the International Day of Happiness.
I just wanted to let you know that because now you have the perfect excuse to ditch all your worries and just smile. Dance like a crazy person. Talk to your friends and family. And just be happy.
Happy Happiness Day!
Some days are good. Some days are bad. Sometimes everything goes wrong and there is nothing you could’ve done to prevent it. This is the story of the last few days of my life, and all the things that went wrong.

It is currently 11:30 pm. I’ve just finished watching The Age of Adaline (what a great film) and I’m waiting for my roommate to come home from a karaoke night. I’ve also not been feeling well these past two days so I spent most of them lying in bed or on my couch, trying to get a bit better. Which means I’ve had a lot of time to think – hence this post.
It is no secret that I am a huge geek. I love all sorts of different books, TV shows, films; my playlist is just a mix of ‘oldies’ and weird youtube parody songs (although… define weird). I also did theatre for about 7 years of my life and I’ve seen a lot of performances during that time. Not all of them were great and there were definitely times when I would tell my not-so-positive opinion quite loudly and openly. I didn’t see anything wrong with me talking down on someone’s performance… that it until I gave that some thought.

I haven’t posted anything during the last month (or a bit over a month, okay, I get it). Oops.
I would say I’m sorry but that wouldn’t be right: I mean, I am sorry that I didn’t have time to write something but I actually didn’t have time. But now I am back and even though there are still many things going on in my life right now, I am ready to come back to my blog and try to keep up with my newest schedule!
As my comeback post, I decided to write some of the things I achieved/did/failed last month. It was a really busy time for me and I’m honestly so happy that it’s slowing down for a bit now. Yay!

We live in a digital age. Every other conversation we have revolves around what we’ve seen on TV, what we’ve read, who tweeted what. Now more than ever we get to “know” so many people without actually meeting them. We see famous, beautiful people all around us. We see what the world considers perfect, important, normal. And this affects our everyday life greatly.

“I am a language student. I am a Czech person who lives in the UK and studies German and Italian. In English. I also decided to take on Japanese in my second year.”
When I say this to people, some of them think I am nuts. They ask if it’s hard. (It is.) They ask why I don’t study something more useful like economics. They ask why I study foreign languages in a foreign language. They ask and ask and ask and they question my decisions. I can’t blame them – not everyone gets it. But there is a reason why I did this, why I voluntarily chose a life where I will always struggle to find the right word in the right language because there are so many words in so many languages that I could use instead.
