After Evs

In April 2013 I will go to Canada to live with my beloved Fiancee and future Husband in a city called Fort McMurray. This is a city near to the Arctic Circle in the Province of Alberta. It’s a small town surrounded by a stunning boreal forest.

Fort McMurray is also known as an oil town. It has the 2nd largest reserve of oil in the world only behind Venezuela. It’s also the richest city in North America WOW 😉

It’s a very cold place in the winter with a lot of snow and shorter days with sunrise around 9 am and sunset at 3 pm. Summer days are awesome in Fort McMurray, the days are longer with about 18 hours of sunlight. It’s 11 pm and you don’t notice it.

You also can see the amazing Aurora Boreal, one of the most amazing events in Nature.

Canada is a multicultural country with people from all over the world. Canadians are very friendly and polite people and very open to welcome newcomers.

I’m pretty sure that I will love living there.

 

 

                                                             AURORA IN FORT MCMURRAY

My results from Creative Writing

Posted by on Wednesday, November 28, 2012 · Leave a Comment 

The Creative Writing last week was a very motivating activity for me. You can find inspiration in different things… in a photo of a cow which is looking through an open window inside a room where a newspaper is laying on a table… or in the pieces of a songtext, creating something new only from this words… here are my results:
 
Can the animals read our thoughts? That’s what I’m asking myself. Maybe they do, ’cause I can’t imagine them reading our newspapers. And yes, they seem to understand us so well… Maybe they eat our newspapers and in their stomach all the letters become free and go through the blood to the brain. ‘Cause what else is the brain than chemistry and what else than chemistry are the printed words? Anyway, I don’t find a solution. Maybe my cat finds one ’cause everytime I ask her: “Let’s sit down in the arm-chair for reading the paper?” she looks up to me with a face like she already did.

Grupul Amalipen vin la Gala pentru Supervoluntari Brasov!

Posted by on Tuesday, November 27, 2012 · Leave a Comment 

Amalipen inseamna “prietenie” in limba romani. Grupul Amalipen s-a infiintat de mai bine de un an si este format din 4 copii, elevi ai Scolii nr.5 din Sacele. Copiii au participat initial la un program de 10 luni alaturi de colegii lor din clasa a IV-a pentru a invata sa cante la fluier. Insa in mod special acestia 4 au aratat dintotdeauna o pasiune adevarata pentru muzica si prezinta un mare potential.

In ultimul an, Grupul Amalipen a fost pe scena la concursuri si spectacole din judetul Brasov. De obicei copiii invata melodii deja consacrate, iar in seara de 29 noiembrie la Gala pentru Supervoluntari din Brasov vor canta Andri Popa.

There's A Storm Coming Mr Wayne

Posted by on Tuesday, November 27, 2012 · Leave a Comment 

You can not believe that i wrote blog like that..

 

İngredients :  1 liter Stejar

0,5 Ursus ( thanks to Kike )

Bombay bicyle club – Still

Regina Spektor – Hero

Cake – Friend is a four letter word

Some parts from : 500 days of summer / Sweet November

 

‘’ This is my story, i even didnt write my 2. Chapter of lost translation.. Cuz i can not find any inspiration.. I wanna write something now cuz i think i had found a inspiration when i was looking empty white walls.. ‘’

 

You are the guy who stays next to computer. You are alone but you never ever uncomfortable about it. You had some relationships..Or crazy nights or parties. And some how time is pass.. You watch ‘’ how I met your mother ‘’ And you emulation to main characters.. You start to think like Barney. Still may not be aware that you are not satisfied with your life.

 

And university.. Enjoy with people, investigate such things..

 

And you met with her. Speaking face to face, try to understand, discover her world. You fight long time for it. And after you start a whole new era in your life. Is it age or is just of her but something is weird.. But you could understand it after first kiss. The first time was not of necessity. It was so sincere for the first time. It was really innocent.. First time in your life you could watch your lover. When she drunks her beer or coffe or something else, you feel the taste of it in your mouth. You would prefer to see her in the nights and in the mornings.. I mean you would feel happy when you are with her.

 

Just as you would always try to predict the end of the relationship. But I told you a little bit different. “I think we cannot do” and go home and play with the computer is not so simple. You cannot imagine ‘’ what kind of fights can we have or what’s our limit ? how can I make her mad ? ‘’

 

You can think like Michael Scofiel ‘’ everything will be allright. ‘’

 

Somehow..Something happen and you can live first separation. You cry so much first time in your life but if you peace next day you feel so good.  It seems like,  stick your head into the water to keep your breath you know. So it is separation. When you take out your head from water, do you know first breathe ? Oxygen goes to your livers..  It’s a relief.

 

You say ‘’ I love you ‘’ first time with your all feelings. And you notice that first time this sentence is so important for you.  Love doesn’t deal, you can love a person without reason. Then you can think about yourself. But you can not tell it no one. ‘’ I wonder do I love you ? /  I wonder if I am in love with you ? What is love ? ‘’  then after you can find the answer yourself…

 

Definition of love is already subjective. You can’t find anybody as reference to yourself. It hasn’t got be any threshold. Then you think about ‘’ lover characters ‘’ Which is fact or fiction. Rose and Jack, Sofie and Julien, Clementine and Joe even Wall-e, Marla Singer..

 

But love look like brown.  You will never ever know about other 7 billion people will see brown like you one day. You will always love your brown. Like love, which is the most important word. If you look into her eyes after a bottle of wine and tell her with your all honestly.  If you think she deserves to hear this word. It’s mean that you are in love with her. That’s why you can tell it to her so easly. To her and yourself. Maybe Rose can used to not see Jack again. Sofie and Julien may endure for a long time. Clementine can afford to erase everything… But you and her is different. But you can’t stay without your brown. Your brown is much bigger than other’s blue, green, black. It’s really hard to explain ‘’ love ‘’ a person which has never ever tasted it.. It is as hard as tell a blind person ‘’ what is color ? ‘’ but you can discover about it when you have a love. So it is impossible to fool yourself that you are in love.

 

You can tell everything to her, she tells you everything also. She becomes the most important thing in your life. When you are kid you would cry about ‘’ if my parents dies one day ? ‘’ but with time this sentence can be more important then other ‘’ if we split one day ? ‘’ You can think when I started to love you like that. You can scared to make her bad. You can’t control your hands to play with her hair or touch nose or more things. More valuable than the most precious diamond.. Fragile, the most fragile than glass. So you afraid of breaking it.

 

 

Everybody talks something about you, everybody has a sentence like ‘’ a beautiful couple ‘’ some people talks good things, some people talks bad things. But nobody understands you..Nobody understands her. Then you can watch more ‘’ six feet under ‘’ in these days. You can see bigger pains then your pain.. you wish that ‘’ if i gone 2 hours late.. or if I woudnt see her in the road.. if I woke up  hour early’’ and we woudnt fight.

 

And suddenly you realase that you had changed. Yes people can change. You can realize small and big things when you are alive. People can change but they change varies for each other. Change due to each other. They change together.. You can have lots of things to live together.. Lot of dreams that you build inside of you. When you look into the future, you think your life with her. You can’t think nothing without her. Nothing has a meaning without her. Everything is empty.

 

And if a separation comes unexpected way and in unexpected time.. When your eyes full of with light.. You can’t accept it.. You can’t hear it. How much pain or suffering or how long it takes time if you don’t know. You dont want to let hopes dies.. You hope that love forgive everything..Maybe 2 of you need a chance ?

As Tom says to Summer :  You know what sucks ? Realizing that everything you believe in is complete and utter bullshit.

Bacteria H la Gala pentru Supervoluntari Brasov!

Posted by on Monday, November 26, 2012 · Leave a Comment 

Trupa de satira si umor “Bacteria H” a luat fiinta in anul 2001 sub tutela Casei de Cultura a Studentilor Brasov, avand ca scop dezvoltarea in randurile tinerilor brasoveni a unei trupe de umor si implicit atragerea celor talentati in cadrul ei, pe de o parte, si pe de alta parte oferirea tineretului brasoven a unei alternative la petrecerea timpului liber prin crearea de spectacole cu specific umoristic .

Pana in prezent trupa a sustinut sute de spectacole pe plan local si nu numai ajungand sa fie cea mai populara trupa de umor amator din Brasov.

Ca motto al acestei trupe: “Omul este cel mai frumos atunci cand zambeste” de aceea la orice eveniment la care a luat parte “Bacteria H” a incercat si a reusit sa scoata ce-i mai frumos din tanarul spectator prin umorul sau original.

Momentul prezentat la Gala pentru Supervoluntari Brasov este o pantomima care se intituleaza “La dentist”.

Lost in translation: Istanbul (chapter II)

Posted by on Monday, November 26, 2012 · Leave a Comment 

…When Aitor discovered that he was in Turkey, instinctively he thought “it will be a long trip”.

He woke up in the seaside of Kusadasi, in the South-West of the country. He was lost and he couldn’t remember anything: What happened before? However, He should continue his trip…to where? It doesn’t matter, but that place, thought beautiful, wasn’t his place.

First, he sought into his pockets any trace of money or documents. Nothing. Second, he asked to someone”what is the date?” : June 4th 2012. At least, this information gave him some practical ideas. He made hitch-hiking till Istanbul in order to take contact with any Spanish institution. When he arrived there, he visited the embassy of Spain, he got a passport and some money from his peers. Some of the employers from the embassy invited him to their home and he could get a bag with some useful things and food. Furthermore, he could have a warm shower. In the bathroom, Aitor could see his image in the mirror. Suddenly, the picture of a great storm crossed his mind and closed the eyes. He scared but this feeling was short in time and disappeared. When Aitor opened his eyes again, he could realize himself as healthy, in a good shape and still young. He smiled and prepared all in order to continue his trip. He shaked his hands for last time with his hosts and went out.

“Istanbul is great”, he though. He could bring to his mind some information about the city:  G. Flauvert also traveled to here and said that, in the future, Istanbul would be the capital of the world. Aitor felt lucky because he also perceived Istanbul as a rich, beauty and cosmopolitan city. In the way he saw a big bazaar and decided to go inside. In front of him, there were tens of small shops and impulsive sellers, who were offering traditional products: lahmacun, sakuska, patlikan kebab, koban salatasi,  cacik, ezo gelik and lots of national products. He took something to drink and walked around the stands.  He saw a bright and colorful shop and stopped to see the ornaments. Suddenly, a beautiful woman stopped next to him. Then, both of them looked to each other and smiled. The woman bought a traditional scarf. In a while, Aitor kept in the same position, looking to her.

-Hello foreigner, are you lost? The woman said.

–  Well, something similar – but suddenly, he changed his speech, considering his real situation such a long and unknown, and he decided to present himself as a traveler.

-Really?

– I mean, I am lost into this bazaar, that’s amazing. I am Aitor, from Spain. I came here because one of my friends recommended it to me.

-Ah! That’s great. Usually I come here and buy some bargains. I was born in this neighbor. Do you like the city?

– Yes, for sure! It’s great. I still didn’t visit too many places but my feelings here are intense.

– It’s good. Well, I have a bit of time till the lunch, would you like to take a coffee?

-Of course! I do. So, what is your name?

– I’m Merve.

Again, an image of a horrible storm crossed his brain. He couldn’t explain why this weird feelings, why this strange images into his mind. But Merve made him to feel something. Aitor touched his stomach in a gesture of pain. Merve become worried: are you ok Aitor?…are you ok? The image of her started to be dizzy….Aitor fainted.

When opened his eyes, he smetl to jasmine. He was in the Merve’s home. The atmosphere was quite comfortable and the space was designed in  a Turkish modern style.  Merve studied fine arts and her sense of style was pure and sharp.  On the table, a cup of hot Turkish coffee was waiting to him. They’re speaking all day about history, art and music, and Aitor felt attraction to her. They became closer, and closer. And don’t know how, but Aitor found his fingers playing with  Merve’s hair. Aitor though “there’s no stop, I’ll kiss her”. She caught his intention and decided to take part. She sat on the top of him and rounded his waist with her legs. Suddenly, he touched the TV remote by mistake and the image appeared in the screen. It was an international new offered by an English channel: “We already don’t know the causes of this accident. The surveillance services found the boat completely empty one week ago, in the Mediterranean Sea. The rescue services are still seeking the area, but for the moment, no one knows what could happen. However, we guess that a Spanish person was in the boat because of its international reference code”. Aitor couldn’t believe it. He still didn’t have complete memory, but something burned into him…

-I’m sorry Merve, I have to go.

– Are you sure? Is something wrong? You can keep here if you don’t feel good.

-No, thank you very much. Yes, I have to do something important. It was great to meet you. Perhaps in another occasion.

Merve gave him a book as a kind of souvenir for his visit. In the outdoor, Merve hugged him and whispered to his ear: “Beware the bridge. See you soon”. Aitor couldn’t understand the entirely meaning of it, but he didn’t have much time. In the street, he felt strange and run, run, run till the train station.

There are something that money can't buy

Posted by on Saturday, November 24, 2012 · Leave a Comment 

Today, I was in Free things day in Brasov. As I know , this day just came after  black Friday ( I don’t know why it is called black tough ) A lot of website , worldwide famous brands made promotions and campaigns in prices.  Romania also got benefit of it.  The world is under the rule of capitalist order. And It turnt into  a big monster that eats everything barely. Sharing feeling, helping others are not simple things.

with this belief, a group of people gathered and created website and to make people conscious more about helping other and decreasing consuming and to avoid from throwing second-hand , used items , rather than giving out to people when needed.  They call to this movement in Romanian ” Bazar cu Lucruri Gratis” .

All items they brought today was impressive.. people flocked much as I counted… they liked items.. so did I .  There was clothes, shoes, food,  electronics, suveniers, necklaces, books , man’s  wear, woman’s weat etc.

It is big chance for volunteer people like us to get this in brasov when we needed the most 🙂 I also helped them in the end of  day.. I met nice people for example Vlad who is DJ in radio and with his small boy 🙂

Hope next month in december it will repeat again , we wait all Brasov! 😉

Good weekend

To be continued…

Dresscode Rules

Dresscode Rules

This is the story of Jennifer. She is working as a volunteer in Romania and she got an invitaton for the supervoluntar-gala. Since she could bring only 20 kg of luggage in the plane she was not able to find the perfect Outfit for this evening in her suitcase. That’s why she went to the center of Brasov to search for good clothes in the stores.
In the first shop they had a lot of fancy dresses. Jennifer was attrackted by a purple dress which was very long, made from silk and decorated with few original details of lace. She tried it on and it fit perfectly. In the front of the mirror Jennifer felt so beautiful. But only one moment later she thought: “Oh my gosh!” because she saw the tag on which was written: 2000 Lei.
Disappointed Jennifer left the store. She couldn’t affort such an expensive dress. Maybe the second hand store would be a better opportunity… Wow: Today everything only 4 Lei! Jennifer entered the shop and startet to search. She found a cute blue dress with prints of small reindeers, a blouse of good cut but in leopard-style and a chic black shirt – unfortunatly with a neckline which showed everything… Finally: nothing serious.
Jennifer was very sad and went home. She had to find something in her own stuff because the shopping tour was not successfull. Checking her clothes she found one of her favourite white shirts and discovered that it looked very classic together with her black pants. She decided to wear this outfit for the gala because she felt very comfortable and confident with this clothes.
You see:The most important thing is to come as you are and not to try to be someone else. It is the best way to enjoy the evening. (And for sure you will find something chic in your cupboard!) See you at the gala!
