My Twisted Cinderella Story – When I was a little girl…

I was standing in my kitchen the other day around 8.30 pm waiting for my glass of warm milk to be done and while I was staring at the microwave I couldn’t help but wonder… Why is it so satisfying to be freshly showered and all tucked up in bed by 9 pm at 25 years old? What did I think my life as a “grown up” would look like and what is it actually like? All of that in todays post…

Chapter 17 – When I was a little girl…

I thought I would be married by 25 with kids. Thankfully, reality kicked in and I got a little something called common sense. Being a housewife at 25 definitely is NOT what would fulfil my life. I actually LOVE my life. The second I became independent I came to realise how fun life can be. I made a whole lot of stupid mistakes because people tend to get a little carried away with “all that independence” and I do tend to get carried away with all the responsibilities and stress BUT all in all I have to say, life is pretty good.

I used to watch movies when I was small about all these women who “made it out”. Who grew up in small villages with no real hope of having an exciting life and I remember thinking I wish that was me… I grew up in a tiny village in Hungary near Makó. I would’ve never thought I’d ever get to go to New York. When I finally got to New York last year I couldn’t help but feel so lucky. It was so surreal to me that I was in Times Square looking at all the bright lights. It was so crazy! Did I ever think I would make it to New York back when I was 13? No way!

Did I think I’d be able to live on my own in Vienna in this dreamy 3 bedroom apartment with my own garden? Absolutely not! Back in Hungary people didn’t just make enough money to be able to afford anything fancy. At least not where I grew up. We didn’t have much back then so this idea would’ve literally never even popped into my head. Everyone has their own priorities and for me it is really important that I have a lovely Home where I can relax and just enjoy my time.

Cleaning and organising is one of my hobbies. It doesn’t just sound slightly sick it actually is. Definitely didn’t see this one coming when I was small let me tell you. I enjoy going to bed at night in a squeaky clean apartment. Matter of fact : I can’t actually sleep if the place is a mess or the kitchen isn’t clean. Adulthood comes with certain surprises guys. Yea…

I didn’t know I’d work as a Blogger and I didn’t know how wonderful this job actually is. Let’s face it back then this job didn’t even really exist. I hoped I could do something that I would enjoy and I definitely knew it had to be something creative. Working as a Blogger really is a dream come true. I can’t believe how many special things and opportunities I got ever since I started my Blog. I am so grateful and humble!

I used to want to stay up as late as possible and while I still enjoy that I have to admit: nothing beats a nice early night in when I’m all tucked up in bed at 8.40 pm, freshly showered with the wonderful knowledge that my apartment is obscurely clean. Is that normal?

I guess you never really know what your life is going to look like … All you can really hope for is that you’re going to end up with/work to have a life you’re really happy with. I can’t stress enough how absolutely thankful I am for everything I have and I’m sending out my love and all the good karma to you guys.

Wishing you all a wonderful day,
Shanice xo

    Hi Shanice,

    I can totally relate with you. Nowadays it feels priceless if I can be at bed around 9 p.m. And the work you are doing as a Blogger is great – keep it up.

    Lots of love,
    Gohar from
