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

If I had a billion dollars…

Posted on January 16, 2017

If I had a billion dollars I would definitely spend it on travelling. In this way I could make the most of the money. I don’t have a certain country that I would want to visit first. I would like to get places like Mexico, Thailand, India, Egypt, Dubai, The Dominican Republic and all these kinds of exotic destinations. I would prefer this kind of destinations because I love the sea, the hot weather and sunsets at the sea. IRead 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 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

A perfect day for me…

Posted on January 9, 2017

A perfect day for me would be a day surrounded by my closest friends and family and being actively involved in a social project or one that brings me knowledge and information about my interests. I would definitely love to share what I did or learned with my friends and family at the end of the day when we meet and also listen to their stories of the day. I like being around the loved ones and change opinions orRead More

Every morning, I wake up…

Posted on January 7, 2017

  Every morning, I wake up full of anticipation and excitement for what will come tomorrow, the day after and in the foreseeable future. Knowing that I am alive fuels my passion for living. It tells me that I have more time to enjoy the world that I live in and to share the warmth of the people around me. It empowers me with the energy to move forward and push boundaries. Yet being alive is not anything special. WhatRead More
