my name is Kristina and I am a 28. Not sure if someone will ever read this, but I had to give it a try, even though I realize my problems are not so serious compared to other people here.
My story is quite simple and short (well, I’m still young, right?). I was born, my parents divorced, I went to primary school, had good grades, was abused by a family friend, went to high school and then university.
After finishing university never got employed in the field of my study. I was always working in hospitality while studying and after finishing school I was lost and didn’t know what to do with my life (still not sure about that one, btw). I married a man I loved, but abandoned him, because I realized it was more his dream to be married then mine (never marry while in a quarter life crisis, kids) . Then I escaped to a foreign country to work and kinda find myself, working in hospitality again.
Now I am back in my home country (I’d rather not tell where I don’t want my friends to find out about this) because for the first time in my life I have a plan. And I am excited and scared about it at the same time. I accepted my fate and even though I feel intelligent and capable and have a degree I want to try to get on my own feet and do business in the field I have the most experience in – in hospitality. After all these years working for other people, I would like to open my very own cafe. And of course, I need money to make it come true. I already spent all of my savings for the renovation of the place I found (pic attached). It’s small and a bit dark, but it’s gonna be mine. I also have a job to make ends meet (the rent is not gonna pay by itself, right?).
It’s that simple. Just an ordinary girl with first world problems asking for your help. Could you help me out?
P.S. If you don’t know what to do in life, go to Iceland, you might find out. :)
