Let’s talk about some personal stuff, shall we? For the past few months, I have been enjoying my post-graduate life and trying to give myself a proper rest after many years of studying. I was so blessed with the support of my family, people who stayed with me no matter what and those who I lost along the way due to my personal issues or simple irresponsibleness. I feel extremely grateful to everyone who was there with me during the past years.
It was quite a strange feeling that I finally made it, I could put all of my failures behind and do my best to stop them from haunting me. The weirdest thing is, even though I was done, I could not fully allow myself to relax. The stress of what’s coming next has been bothering me since July. Do not take me wrong, I was blessed to graduate with an amazing job offer in one of the most prestigious companies in Switzerland but not knowing if I will be given an opportunity to stay in the country that I proudly call home for the past 11 years was and still is very unclear.
Since I am back, I am trying to enjoy each day here like it is the last of me living in Switzerland because soon I might have to leave, try to find something else or join the family business back in Siberia. All of the options sound appealing to me but one of the biggest joys would be to stay here, get the proper working experience in the French-speaking environment. In case it does not work out, well I thought about this too, and as an adult, I have realized that everything happens for a reason and this would be the right time to move on with my life. I am planning to continue developing my blog and keep it as my favorite hobby (of course after the hot yoga that I missed so much during all the months that I have been away) Having said that I always remind myself to “stay true to yourself, yet always be open to learning. Work hard, and never give up on your dreams, even when nobody else believes they can come true but you. These are not clichés but real tools you need no matter what you do in life to stay focused on your path” – Albert Einstein
Strangely, but one of the best places for me to “get away” is mountains. It is so grounding to leave for one or few days and allow yourself to fully absorb the fresh mountains air.
Switzerland has an incredible nature and every season it looks completely different. My favorite is autumn because of the warm brown-orange colors, pumpkin soups, hot chocos, and warm blankets.
