I am an Eastern-European immigrant who has been living in Vancouver since 2009. I could say that I came here with many big dreams and not enough common-sense.
In July 2013, I turned 30. The change of prefix found me battling my weight, without a full-time job, procrastinating the completion of my degree (8 years and counting), and clinging to the remainders of a pseudo-relationship that was mostly based on my wishful thinking.
I already knew that my life was not where I wanted it to be, and I didn’t have a rom-com-style meltdown. I simply acknowledged how disappointed I was in myself, and then decided to do something about it.
I wanted to put it all online because I think there are other people like me out there. There must be other people like me out there. People who are tired of endless analyses and of clever apologies for their own failures. People who believe that it’s never too late to take action, and that, if they keep trying, they really can turn their lives around.
This blog will monitor the journey I will make to regain my health and my sense of worth. It sounds solemn, but I’ll try my best to make it fun and interesting to read.
