My first memory as a child…

Posted on December 21, 2016

It must have been on a Sunday evening – being less than 3 years old, I probably didn’t really understand the notion of time. I still hear the theme song of that old sitcom I, for some reason, loved watching. I know I had just taken a bath as I remember feeling my hair wet and the bed covers must have been freshly washed, because they smelled amazing. To this day, I haven’t found anything else to feel as goodRead 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. Later on in our friendship I found out that the flame in her hair was an extension of her strong personality and eccentric character. I remember the moment when we were taking photos in front of the Matthias Corvinus Monument and I asked her what her favourite placeRead More

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! LEAVE IT IN THE COMMENTRead More

What dance means to me…

Posted on December 14, 2016

What dance means to me… Although it`s a question as old as time, I heard many answers.  I heard it`s freedom, love, fun, movement, peace of the mind and body, life, madness etc. Dance is what you want it to be and do not let anyone define it for you. Everybody defines it for himself. Do not let anyone tell you “yo, what you do it`s not dance … you don`t have groove’’ or ‘’ it’s all choreographed, you don`tRead More

What I really want right now…

Posted on December 13, 2016

Off the top of my head, I could probably say that what I really want right now is a sense of belonging. At this stage of my life, I can’t say that I truly belong anywhere. I’m 21 and I feel that almost everything and everyone that I can think of is transitory: people, feelings, perceptions and the city I (again, currently) live in. It seems like I always try to make connections with all these but they keep eitherRead More

If I could have one super power…

Posted on December 6, 2016

If I could have one super power  it would be time travelling for sure. No, I’m not willing to travel in time and see what is about to happen tomorrow, next year or if I’m going to end up living my dreams. I don’t want to ruin the fun of living! What I would do is, I would use my super power in order to travel back in time! Imagine the million things that I could do. I could re-liveRead More

If you want to expand your horizon…

Posted on December 5, 2016

If you want to expand your knowledgeable horizon, meet new people or earn money, then you must at least, once in a life-time, get out of your domestic environment, out of your comfort zone. You must leave your hometown, leave your country. Spend some time elsewhere, where you know nobody and nobody knows you. Why? Because life is too short to be spent in one place. The world is totally diverse for one reason: so that cultures can cross eachRead 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
