My last adventure…

Posted on January 19, 2017

The last thing that fits my definition of adventure was my volunteering project through AIESEC in Egypt. Uncertainty. That’s the word that best describes what an adventure means to me. And the exchange was all about that. Actually it was the first time I left Romania. Back then, I had a strange desire to have a break from my normal life, and live another one for a while. And I wanted something that would blow my mind. And it wasRead More

Between a stressed genius and a happy idiot…

Posted on January 12, 2017

Between a stressed genius and a happy idiot I choose a stressed genius. I think I have two fears, to wake up when they die, in the grave or to die among stupid people. I think that’s it. The less you know the more peaceful your soul is, but I’m hyperactive and it would be impossible to feel reassured by the unknown. I prefer to be active, mentally and physically and sentimentally. My peace lies in an active ongoing program.Read More

Dina Juzbayeva – The girl with hair like the Sun

Posted on December 20, 2016

I met Dina for the first time two years ago. We have a mutual friend who introduced us to each other. She had her hair dyed in red, just like a flame.

When I was a kid…

Posted on December 15, 2016

When I was a kid I used to catch fireflies with my sister and my cousin, and I would think that if I would go up on the mountain I could as well catch the stars just like the fireflies. I thought I could do everything and be anything I wanted. But when I grew up, I studied law which is not that much of my thing. *WE’D LOVE TO HEAR YOUR STORY AS WELL!

When I was a little girl…

Posted on December 11, 2016

I remember when I was a little girl, 6 or 7, someone told me that whenever a plane flies over Antarctica, penguins watch it and eventually fall on their back and are no longer able to get up without help. They told me that there is a special person living there whose job is to pick up the penguins whenever they fall. For around 12 years this has been my dream, to pick up penguins when they fall. I amRead More
