"Everything worthwhile in life comes from daring to risk it all; following our dreams despite the cost; loving despite the pain; hoping despite the doubts; and living boldly despite the fear" ~Bear Grylls
I regretfully have to say, that post won’t be about any adventure, I mean it will be, but about ended one, that all of us know.
A couple last days were schock for whole world because we had to say goodbye to two great people- David Bowie and Alan Rickman. I don’t think if anyone on this planet didn’t know their name, if so for sure every one knew their faces.
Even if we’re not rock music fans, or fans of Rickman’s deep roles, or voices of both of them, that couldn’t be unnoticed. Because things like that reminds us that we are mortal. All of us.
Things like that reminds us price and value of the life. That it’s not good to waste it, that we have to appreciate it the best as we can and enjoy that life the best as we can. Enjoy every single second of our life.
“Life isn’t measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moment that take our breath away.”
They both showed us that we can make big things, not only for whole world but also for ourselves. That we have to LIVE to the last moment.
Despite that nobody is perfect, we are create to live.
“I’ve got scars that can’t be seen
I’ve got drama, can’t be stolen” ~David Bowie
“I can’t answer why
But I can tell you how
We were born upside-down
Born the wrong way ‘round”
Their legends will be with us forever.
They will live forever in our hearts, and let their souls still make their dreams come true there where they are now. Wherever it is.
As I said it won’t be very chronologic blog, so now I’ll move to present.
At the end of September 2015 I’ve started, as everyone say, one of the biggest adventures of my life.
I’ve become Au Pair in the USA, I live in Denver, Colorado and I take care after two cute boys and one little dog.
What can I say now, after almost three months?
That I experienced something different.
I won’t say it was easy, sickness caused by different food, homesickness, longing for friends, which I still fighting with.
But I am, I live, I’m getting known new world and new culture. And I’m making my dreams came true.
What can I say about Denver?
City not big, if we take standards here. In New York, during Training School, they said me, that Denver lie by the mountains. During first week I haven’t seen any mountain, because of the storm and I was a little dissapointed. But when they showed themselves they were worth waiting for and I still can’t stop yearning when I see them.
What I have to say about are Red Rocks, which I had possibility to see during Run the Rocks. Thing that I have to say proudly was that I run about 3 miles in 45 minutes and I’ve never been running in mountains before.
What else was amazing so far was american Halloween, houses decorated like the best horrors, spider webs, tombsotones, skeletons and children knocking in doors and screaming “trick or treat”.
Besides, Pampkin Patch and my perfect pumpkin!
And Zombie Crawl. O mummy everyone should take part in that one day! Whole main street in zombies. And it wasn’t Walking Dead. So many amazing costumes and ideas, my favorite was zombie Barbie and Ken in boxes!
If we’re talking about costumes. I was listener or part of many conversations about the best Halloween costume. And I have to say that my favourite was very big guy dressed as Princess Leia and screaming to his girlfriend “you cannot leave Princess Leia alone in the corner!”.
What else I experienced during that time?
American camping. Oh yeees. Camping in Colorado. Mountains, high grass, camper, bonfire and Marshmillow’s.
Something that I saw in movies and experiencing that I felt like in movie myself. Fairy tale.
What could I say about Americans? They are much different people. Starting with “Hi! How are you?” on every corner, through “I love your shoes, when I was younger…”, ending with “Common, I will show you some great places!”.
They… Are always positive. Even if they are unhappy, they are still positive.
Or maybe I should wrote “you”? 🙂
But, what my teenager half realised with sadness, all handsome Americans they had to take to Hollywood. Because during my whole stay here I saw maybe a few of them. Even don’t know if all of them were Americans.
For now it’s all what I remember, but for sure you’ll see more posts about differences and american adventures.
If you have any questions, notes, or challenges, that I could try to do- write, comment. I’ll answer for sure.
In a first post bloggers used to put some popular “about me” and I think I should start with that too, to show you in some way who I am.
So, two words about me. Firstly- I am pretty good liar, because it won’t be two words for sure. But, in that moment, I, signed below, would like to state, that on that blog you won’t read, if you wish to read, any lie. All of these stories are real events, informations and experiences. Despite my colourful imagination I’ll try to not vary them.
That blog doesn’t have special destination, it’s not about opinions or specific advices. I think it exist to show you somehow my life philosophy, that I think is close to many, many people. It’s also big act of resisting to lifestyle of lot of today’s teenagers, whose day plan look like: 1. School 2.Home 3. Sleep 4. Homework 5. Time for friend (alternatively) 6. Series/games until 3 am.
First question- how old are these people, that they need sleep during the day? 50? My little digression. But I’m leaving that to your personal consideration.
So at the beginning, one great general said- “Don’t say that it’s over, when you are still alive”.
Life is an adventure and it’s only up to you how exicting it will be.
So this is that blog about- about passions, that are changing our life in an adventure.
And, like I promised, about me:
I am a dreamer, travel kid and passionate user of good movies. I eat books for kilograms and I love sweets.
I hate boredom, monotony, I love discover and trying new things, and I think this is where my adventures come from.
Simply, maybe you can even say, usual?
I can say now- I am not usual. None of us is. Everyone has his own view, ideas and oddities.
And I want to write about what I love and what makes that I feel that I really live. You can say that it’s boring. Stupid. Risky.
There is no fun without the risk.
I am waiting for all digressions, considerations, words of criticism or recognition and all corections about my english mistakes.
Or maybe you would like to share your adventures?
