What a book means to me

Posted on January 23, 2017

A book is a place where you can obtain refuge. Every prejudice is erased and your mind starts a new life, a new story. It is not necessary to know anything, just by reading you can learn it all. Opening the first page of a book is like turning the knob of a door which stands between you and the rest of the universe. Wisdom, fantasy, history and life lessons are waiting for you between the pages, to make youRead More

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

About Asians in Europe and a trip to Paris

Posted on January 18, 2017

To put it straight, there are a lot of us in most of the European capitals. For real. I even felt a little awkward when I visited Paris during the winter holidays and noticed that I no longer turn heads when I walk down the streets as I usually do in Cluj. Also, I started to differentiate between the Koreans, Chinese and Japanese. And I started just now because I haven’t really met many people of these nationalities neither inRead 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

What do I define as a family

Posted on January 11, 2017

In order to describe what I define as a family I want to first tell you a little about my own family. I grew up in a big one. In the beginning it was just the five of us, my little sister, me, my brother and my parents but as I grew older different kind of people would come and join our family. This might sound strange to you so let me explain what I mean by this. My parentsRead More

What is home…

Posted on January 10, 2017

Mom: Stop saying Cluj is your home, it’s not. It really hurts me when you do that. I fell like you forgot us and your roots. Me: Mom if “home” had been a building or a place they wouldn’t have invented the word “house” to begin with. Home is a state of mind, a feeling, the universe that shelters you in a very specific moment. As I was growing up I could not imagine a place better than the oneRead More

My biggest accomplishment in life is…

Posted on January 6, 2017

  My biggest accomplishment in life is the fact that I always do the things I like, the things I love. I had a passion for street art so I have decided to write my bachelor thesis on this subject and the result really made me happy. My second accomplishment is the President position in AIESEC. I strongly believe this in my biggest accomplishment because I still get to do what I love the most: get connected with people fromRead 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

Four years ago I was too afraid to…

Posted on December 27, 2016

  I study cultural communication at Vilnius University and I love to sing. Four years ago I was too afraid to opt for a degree in music studies or maybe I didn’t want it badly enough. As the time goes by I understand more and more that singing is part of me and nothing matters when I sing. If my life was to be the reason for a song, I think its title would be “Under the power of doubts.”Read More
