Why I consider not having children

Many ideas and principles that I stand by today were born into my head while in my early teenage years, when I didn’t understand a lot, but I was able to pay a great amount of attention to what I was feeling. What I’m going to refer to today is the subject of giving birth […]

It’s never gonna change

And I hate that I can’t say your name Without feeling like I’m part of the blame And it’s never gonna feel quite the same But it’s never gonna change. And I hate that I’m always so young Had me feeling like you were the one And it’s never gonna feel like it’s done ‘Cause […]

Reads of 2014 #Biblioteca bloggerului român

Last year I’ve managed to read 29 books (1 that is not published yet by Cosmin Leucuța author of Laptele negru al mamei) and I’m joining this initiative called Biblioteca Bloggerului Român (click for details) choosing the best reads of 2014. Now since I’ve read both in English and Romanian this is going to be […]

1st January 2015 – Streets of Vienna

Like any other big city, Vienna is really hard to catch empty-ish. But if you are into this kind of stuff (a.k.a. empty cities) the morning of 1st January is your moment. At 9:30 a.m. I was in Stephansplatz (place I’ve got quite bored with by now) searching for door entrance to Domgasse which always […]
