I Study To…

Posted on January 20, 2017

It’s that time of year again. For many of you, exams are just around the corner, and studying is not what you would like to be doing right now. The whole world looks like an anxious place of PDFs and textbooks, where joy consists in what colour your sharpie should be and that trip to the supermarket that means a half-an-hour-long blissful break from revision. So, here are some motivational quotes that students from all around the world have shared with us: Pakistan, Egypt, Brasil, IndonesiaRead More

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

I’ve worked as a saleswoman for…

Posted on January 3, 2017

I’ve worked as a saleswoman for twenty five years. When I was younger I wanted to be a dancer. My grandmother even gifted me a pair of pink ballet slippers. But my parents said that, by practicing this job, I wouldn’t be able to feed myself and my future family. As you can see, I sell a little bit of everything: biscuits, cans, flour, sugar. People ask me how I endure this cold weather. It’s all about money, I tell them. AndRead More

Listen to me, and listen closely.

Posted on December 30, 2016

You have 30 seconds to say something to the entire world. What would you say? Listen to me, and listen closely. You, me, the person next to you, we’re all here for a reason. You hear me? I guess you’ve heard this before. But…have you really given serious thought to what it really means…in your case? Ever paused for a few minutes to reflect on this question? I guess that 99 out of 100 of you, my awesome listeners, haveRead More

My wish for next year…

Posted on December 22, 2016

My wish for next year is to have a garden in which to plant vegetables and flowers. I’ve wanted this since I was little and lately, I’ve increasingly thought about it. And I want to say that all the time I’ve wanted to do something behind the block, in that garden, something with it. To at least make it more beautiful, to look better, but I failed, and I do not know, maybe I’ll succeed this year. I want thisRead More

When I felt Heaven on Earth…

Posted on November 30, 2016

When I felt Heaven on Earth was when I took a risk and I went on a whim to the mountains. And I went to Retezat and I climbed Peleaga, and I saw the sunset there. And it was one of the most beautiful moments of my life. If everything was possible and I had a magic wand, I would want for every human to find their passion. And to do this in their life. And to be people thatRead More
