Let’s leave it all and travel the world? No, thanks!

Personally, I consider myself an expat. Many dictionaries explain the word “expat” as somebody who lives in a country different from the country he/she was born in. In my perception, an expat is a person who lived in different countries for a longer period of time (6 months+) and, in general, is able to live anywhere.

How does the life of an expat differ from the life of those guys from Instagram posting every week photos from new places and moving to new countries every month? This is the future perspectives. An expat plans to get married, get kids, build a house, have a wealthy life when he/she is old. You want and you can travel, but you also want to BUILD something, to be able to compare life in various countries and to choose a country for yourself. You may even decide to return to the country you were born in after many years – and you will not consider yourself a looser.

Thought for the day

As a good fight for a better life requires more energy and brings more stress, it is easier for your psychology to help you being a looser than a fighter. You will usually think a lot about others saying you’re stupid and have no talent, or you may even agree with their position. In other words, while you feel so unhappy and powerless, your brain is just trying to “save you some stress”. Remember it and learn to keep your ears closed from time to time)) You‘re the only one who can estimate your power, talent and potential!

One secret for your success everybody forgets to tell you

Try to look for “how to become successful” in Google. You will find a plenty of DO, DON’T, NEVER, ALWAYS… but you will not find what you really need.

I spent about 2 years attending 3 universities one after another: Economics was my breakfast, PR was my dinner and Languages became my supper. Somewhere in between I managed to take some short jobs to get my pocket money. Did it teach me a lot? Oh, yeah! Most importantly, it showcased all kinds of emotional, physical and intellectual burnouts one can imagine.

Be my guest

Dear reader,

As the time offers new opportunities and brings in new ideas, I got something new for you, too. I have seen a lot, and I have much to tell – so, be my guest in this blog where I will share my vision of life and career of a modern international woman as well as my opinion regarding the cultural differences and integration problems in different countries.

This blog has been created, first of all, as a help for my Russian friends to explore new opportunities and lifestyles outside of Russia. I will give my best to write as simple as possible, and often you will find a Russian translation below. I hope that you will be able not only to enjoy the reading, but also to improve your English, as learning languages is essential for your future.

See you soon,

Russianladyabroad


Дорогой читатель,

Как время предлагает новые возможности и приносит нам новые идеи, так и я кое-что для тебя приготовила. Мне удалось многое увидеть, и многое осталось несказанным – поэтому приглашаю тебя стать читателем моего блога, в котором я поделюсь своим видением жизни и международной карьеры современной женщины, а также собственным мнением относительно культурных различий и проблем интеграции в разных странах.

Этот блог был создан, прежде всего, для того, чтобы помочь моим друзьям из России открыть для себя новые возможности и варианты устройства жизни за границей. Я буду писать преимущественно на английском, стараясь подбирать максимально простые выражения, но порой буду добавлять и полноценный перевод на русский в конце поста. Очень надеюсь, что ты не только насладишься чтением, но и сможешь подтянуть английский, потому что изучение языков крайне важно для твоего будущего.

До скорой встречи,

Russianladyabroad
