Thursday Thoughts



I haven't really had the best week so far. I was quite hopeful about a job a while ago (things looked really promising!) but now I'm not that sure anymore. :-/ I've been feeling really unmotivated job-wise in the past few... months, I guess (I was going to say weeks, but 'months' is closer to truth). I guess all I can do is keep my chin up, keep trying & hope for the best! I just wanted to put these feelings out there because while blogs can make a person's life seem like a fairy-tale, everyone has their own struggles. Personally, I'd like this blog to mainly focus on positive elements - that can't always be the case though!

The above two photos sum up two things that have inspired me lately.

1. Just a photo I really like - found it in Dolce Vita magazine. This is one of my favourite Czech magazines, it's all about fashion, design and architecture.

2. Swedish lessons every Thursday! I looove going to the classes, the group is super relaxed and fun and our teacher rocks. And getting better at Swedish is really exciting! :)

  1. Life throws the punches at us like crazy, right? And sometimes it really does feel like we can't catch a break, need to take a knee while things are just plain *shite*. But every time you get back up and stare that stuff in your way, you're showing you can't be beat! The fact you even posted this tells me you're a winner.

    The *really* good news is that you're surrounded by people who care about you and are always there for you even when life's being dumb like this :) You can let it all out. This is your life and your blog, and everybody loves Martina raw and uncut edition! It makes the positive stuff that much more exciting when they come up :) Haha.

    And holy *wow* at learning Swedish! Sounds like challenge and a lot of fun. I hear they have some pretty intense "sentence cases". And I thought the czech sentence cases were tricksy... :D

    Anyway, this comment is getting too long! Keep your chin up, girly-face. Rooting for you :)
