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

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

I feel like art is an extension of myself…

Posted on January 2, 2017

I feel like art is an extension of myself. I can’t go days without drawing something digitally or not having my sketchbook with me. It’s the only thing that has remained with me since childhood. Like you know how we would draw our favorite cartoon characters? That’s how it started for me. And then I started drawing the outside world. For a while I thought it was just a passing passion, not something that I would seriously pursue as anRead 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
