Burst

I am big. I am small. I am powerful. I am weak. I am an unstoppable force. I can’t conjure up the will to get out of bed. I am charming. I am awkward. I’m gonna rip you apart. Don’t challenge me. Please be nice to me. Please accept me. Please validate me. I am…

The colors of Bucharest

Watching the city from my 8th floor window happens to be one of my favorite activities; photographing the sunset and the street lights happens to be another. Therefore, I absolutely love this week’s theme. Even though it’s not quite “atop”; come and join me on my balcony, let’s relax, enjoy the colors of Bucharest together…

21yold (Studenție #1)

    EN:      I have initially planned for this blog to be a medium, a place for me to “expose” my stories, exercise my writing and share some thoughts, eventually get some feedback, or at least some threats to give up writing. So at least I’d know something, right? But then I realized it wouldn’t…

Morning with a Cat

RO: Ma trezesc buimaca si fara chef de orice, la sunetul insistent al alarmei. Ma duc la bucatarie sa imi pregatesc un ceai negru – reteta mea pentru zile incepute sub semnul oboselii. Scot canile din dulap – una pentru mine, una pentru el, si pun apa la incalzit. Un pamatuf, un ghem de blana…

Cozy December

RO: In ultimele zile am fost coplesita de nerabdare, abia astept sa ma bucur de o ciocolata calda langa brad, acasa, imbracata intr-un pulover tricotat calduros, urmarind o comedie simpatica sau un film fantasy/adventure (The Hobbit, anyone?)… Abia astept o plimbare prin Centrul Vechi cu cateva zile inainte de Craciun, printre oameni fericiti in cautare…
