Nassau, Bahamas ~ Part 1





The first thing you think of when you hear the word Bahamas is blue water and white beaches, I know. But see, I'm not the type of person that loves beaches. When I travel somewhere I'd rather spend my time exploring the city, the houses, the churches, the hidden places and coffee shops. But I do have beach photos, I just left them for part 2, for now I just wanted to make this quick post from a stroll around the lovely city Nassau. I have good memories from here. It was the first place I visited back in August when I went to work abroad, if you don't count my first two days when I arrived in Miami that is. I should make a story time about the first day when I arrived there and the panic attack I had, lol. I will write all about it in my next post, it's actually quite a funny story.
Anyway.... Nassau.


















Until Soon.

Dark and silent and complete.




There is this quote that I use as my background for a reason: "I let goLost in oblivion. Dark and silent and complete. I found freedom. Losing all hope was freedom.' And at first it seems dark and somehow depressing maybe, but it's actually very positive, to me. Especially this part  Dark and silent and complete. C o m p l e t e.
See, holding on to some things that might never happen, and somehow are not very good for you, and calling that thing hope, it's not healthy. I swear hope can be the best and the worse thing at the same time. Sometimes makes you stronger, sometimes it just prolongs the misery. 





The past 6 months were a big lesson for me, I learned lot of things. I learned how to live simple. I learned how to deal with sadness while having a smile on my face, and staying strong, and doing what you have to do. I learned how to make the best out of every situation. I learned not to care about other people's opinions, but I learned how to accept different opinions and advice. I learned how to control my emotions. I learned how to love people more. I learned how to appreciate the smallest things. I learned how to be strong, when I didn't have the energy or the will for anything. I learned how to be a better human, for me and for others. And most important, I learned how to let things go. Because, when you live in an environment where people come and go constantly, and people that you love can be gone the next day, you learn how to appreciate moments and the present. And then, when they're gone, you accept that. You have to. You have to let go, and move on. Cause life it's about moving on. See, I used to be the type of person that loved to dwell in sadness and things that already ended, just because I felt like if I let go and continued with my life and just be happy, I felt like I was gonna lose all the memories of that time, so in some fucked up way, I felt like being sad and holding on to things that ended is gonna give them more meaning. Is that too confusing? Maybe. But if you're like me, you'll understand.


Long story short, letting go is good. My most used lyrics on my photos and my blog, are from the song I forget where we were by Ben Howard, and there's this part that says: 'maybe it was peace at last, who knew.' And, I can feel the meaning of that part. Once you let go, of whatever it is that's disturbing your soul, you're at peace. And you're complete. You don't need that thing to be a complete person.

I still listen to sad and nostalgic songs, they're my favorite.
I still remember the past, and maybe, just maybe, sometimes I wish for some things to happen again.
I still have my demons.
But, I'm good where I am now, mentally. I don't need a lot to be happy.
I'm complete. 



Until Soon.

The Adventures of Donna October ~ August 2017




I didn't realize how many pictures I have from the past 6 months, until lot of people, including friends and family, asked me to see the photos of all the places I was. I told them, y'all gonna see the photos once I edit. And then I open my folders, and I see chaos. No way I can edit all those one by one, and then show all of it to everybody separately... I mean, that would take a while. One of the ways of me organizing my photos is here, on my blog. But, it takes longer and not everybody has the time to check my blog and all of those posts. So, being obsessed with youtube, I kinda got this idea, that it would be a lot easier if I chose my favorite photos and then combine all of them in few videos ( 6 videos to be exact, one for each month ).
And it's a good thing for me - organizing my memories.
I'm still new to this, I will improve as I make more and more videos, but for now, here is the first month of my 6 month long adventure.
Enjoy!







Until Soon.
