We’re a generation that struggles to get a house and settle down. We don’t like saving. We’d rather enjoy our youth and spend our money on travelling, experiences and too many drinks over the weekend. But you know what? Life is short. And it’s a lesson I’ve learnt again after the tragic event that happened in Manchester. It’s so sad and scary and just so unfair. What am I personally gonna do about it? Spread positivity and enjoy the privilege of being alive, healthy and free to enjoy this beautiful world. We’re so damn lucky.

I’ve made it a habit into reviewing my life every time I turn one year older and I usually am not afraid to share my thoughts with you on my blog. It’s been almost a month since I’ve turned 27 and realised I forgot about my good old habit. But no worries, today I’ve finally found the time to talk to you about what I’ve learnt this last year. And that is
You Are Stronger Than You Think You Are
What many people don’t know is that last year I decided to take on a very exciting journey that literally meant no security, no comfort zone, no nothing. I’m not gonna give you all the cheesy details, but I basically stopped everything I was doing and decided to reinvent myself. The biggest thing was to quit my secure job. Why? Because it just didn’t feel right. Was it easy? Hello no. Was I constantly tempted to go back to how things were? Hell yes. It was frustrating sometimes, very frightening especially at first but I was on a mission. And I stuck to it. It was the best decision I ever made and even though it wasn’t an easy journey, I feel like I’ve learnt so much in the last year, it’s just incredible. And by being this brave (because this is brave, no modesty needed), I became way more confident and ready to take on new challenges.
I didn’t just leave my job, I decided to change my mindset. I decided to make the most out of my skills, experience and my goals. I decided to take it to the next level. Some of you might read this and think I must be high or something, but when you get that drive, that desire to do something great, then you’ll know what I mean. And if you have no desire, than you better find one, because you only live once.

Finished my exams, so now I’m packing, I’m going home! There’s such a long time since I haven’t visited my place, that I cannot wait to be there already…to play with all my fluffy pets, to meet with my old friends, to go shopping with mum, to stay with my family on the terrace, enjoying the sunset with some delicacies on the grill, to sing and dance by myself in my dressing room ( I’m an undiscovered artist!) .. aaand the list goes on! I won’t be seeing Dan for a while, so we spent some time together today in the park.
Gata, in sfarsit vin acasa! Abia astept, mi-a fost dor de prea multe lucruri! E frumos aici, dar nu degeaba se spune ca nicaieri nu-i ca acasa. Dan ramane in Manchester, asa ca am propus sa ne petrecem ziua impreuna, in parc. Si ca sa ma asortez peisajului, mi-am pus niste floricele in par – ca o floare intre flori! 🙂 glumesc, glumesc.. V-am pupat! Am plecat sa-mi fac bagajul!
*Nu uitati de GIVEAWAY! Puteti sa va personalizati un tricou, cum doriti voi, daca urmati regulile de-aici. Eu deja mi-am comandat un model, astept sa vin acasa sa vad cum a iesit! 🙂
After a short visit to Uni today, Liz and I stopped in the park nearby to take some pictures. It’s quite cold.. but you can already see lots of flowers here and there, you can already smell the spring!
Dupa o scurta vizita la facultate, am mers putin prin parc impreuna cu Liz, sa facem cateva poze. E cam frig, ce-i drept.. dar deja au aparut multe flori, natura isi revine incet, incet.. se simte c-a venit primavara!
