Christmas tree

Image
Well, this Christmas knocks at the door. I want so much to have a Christmas tree in my home! A small one! I know a shop close to my house, there are many Christmas trees in there, I saw a lot last week. I dress up fast and walk there. But surprise! The shop is closed! Great! This is the way they want to make money, huh! I am sure they have one more in there for me. Let’s try another shop: nothing opened around. It’s 6 o’clock. Maybe Tesco? Still open, but the Christmas trees are sold out. Perfect!!! I go to speak with a person from customer service. -Please, is there any chance to find a tree, even broken in the store? Maybe a lost one…somewhere in the shop… So, they searched for me 20 minutes, but didn’t find anything. In the end, I took some Christmas tree branches from the flower store. On my way back I received a lot of text messages: Why didn’t u buy earlier the tree? How come that you still want a Christmas tree at this age – I thought you are a mature girl now! And so on. Onl…

Roma/Rome

I am happy. I take what life gives me and everything I take is so amazing. I will never say no and give a try for everything. Because there is only one conscious life I have. I do not know if there will be something after or if there was something before; so, I do everything I want in this life!  I have said that I have lost two important persons in my life. Now I need to thank them for this. Perhaps they were important for me, but I was not important enough for them and so, that’s why they choose to get rid of me. Fair enough. When there is no complete connection, no mutual need, no similar feelings – there is no need to waste the time of both parties indeed. So thank you!  Two other persons came into my life and I am so happy to meet them. Because if your soul is clean and your heart is sincere, at any time when you lose something, yur will receive twice in the future. This is always happening with me and I am so so happy for this. Sometimes I feel lucky. About these two persons I w…

Books and RATS!

Image
One o’clock. I am walking home. Fast. Time after time, I move my books from one hand to another. They are heavy. I am thinking it’s one o’clock and I didn’t do much today. I have read only 80 pages, I am so ashamed!!!!  At Warren Station I want to cross on the other side of the street. There is a homeless who sleeps in a corner and I do not want to see him again today! I can’t help him and this breaks my heart each time when I pass by.  There are a lot of people around. Some drunk, some tipsy, some just happy. I suppose they come from a pub or party. But what party on Tuesday? Right, no party today….probably they come back from a pub, yes.  I walk fast. I think what my friend Kian told me about this area: he said that it is one of the worst areas in London, with a high theft rate. Is that true? Hmm…I become scared. But what can they take it from me? one of my 6 old anthropological books? Hmm….I imagine they can rape people. Yes, they can. I think that is one of the most awful things …

Moving on

Image
Almost the end of the year.  I had a dream. I was watching the sea…or the ocean…don’t know exactly. It was a beautiful day and the sun was shining, reflecting it’s rays into the blue-coloured water. There were coming some showy, nice, shiny ships and somehow I was waiting for them. Also, in the sea or whatever, I saw dolphins bathing and jumping in and out of the water. I woke up with a smile on my face – such a beautiful dream – remembering the time when I saw for the first time dolphins in real :)
 I end this year with minus two people in my life, people I considered being so close to my soul. People I considered that they will never go out of my life. People who use to say that they want to keep me close. People who told me that we have a special connection which will never end. But just people… And still: People I do care and this can’t change. Because I do not change. I will be forever the same Victoria. In any time you will find the same smile, the same shiny eyes and the sa…

The END

Life is unpredictable. So unpredictable.
 Today I lost a friend. Forever.
 I have nothing to say but : Thank you for the all moments that we have spent together; there were the most beautiful moments in my life. I will never forget anything. You will be still the best salsa partner, my soul mate, my dearest friend.
 So, no documentary about you, huh? :P (joking :)

 It is your choice and I respect it….

But if you ever need me as a friend, you will know where to find me.
 Love to you

 P.S. Thank you so much for deleting me...I really appreciete it! Can't believe that now, after all happened, I am just nothing for you.

The Summer University of Ramnicu Sarat on the Communism Crimes

1. The Prisons

I was so anxious about this summer school. I was thinking many times if it is a good idea to participate or not. I was afraid that I will not be able to take more information about the crimes during communism because already I knew something from Roxana (my colleague from the Historical Film Festival Summer School) and it was so painful to find out what happened in those cruel times.  Roxana:)
After her story, I couldn’t sleep a couple of nights. But this it was good. Actually, it was the best preparation for the following hard information. Her introduction in the Communism regime was so helpful for me.

In the first day, we went to visit the Ramnicu Sarat Prison. It was the first time in my life when I entered into a prison. This prison was no longer active.
Well, this prison was built in theperiod of King Charles the First ofRomania (1839–1914) as a small prison . In the Communism regime, it was known as the Silence Prison as each individual from there was kept in a s…

The Historical Film Festival from Rasnov

Image
Rasnov is aRomanian town situated at themassive PostavaruMountain, close to the Bucegi and PiatraCraiuluiMountains. It has just 16 000 residents all Romanians, Germans, Romas and Hungarians.
The place has a beautiful history from the old times of Dacians (more than two thousands years ago) when the place had the name Komidava, after Cumidava. People in here like to say that this place had the most ancient Romanian roots from the Tharacians, Dacians (a Thracians family), Romans (after the Roman colonization).
Well, in 1331, the area appears in documents as “Rosnou” (the “Rose meadow” in German) and in 1343 as “Rosnov”. From those times, the town developed as a noticeable economic area through the craft guilds like woodworkers, glassmakers, weavers, soon after, gunpowder producers. Tourism was also developed.And because Rosnov was situated in an open area, on a road between “Tara Barsei” and “Pasul Bran” and many invaders (mostly Turks and Tartars) used to invade and destroy everythin…

Political Communication Summer School

Image
Sometimes it is good to do a little bit from something completely different than you used to do before. So, after my friend Emil gave me the idea, I have applied for the Political Communication Summer School organized in Brasov - a nice mountain town.

I was not so sure about my application (an essay like a newspaper article where I wrote about monarchy – you can read it in here - , and a CV with no link to politics). But they accepted me and offered a full scholarship.


The first day was amazing. As I go for more than 8 years to summer schools, I could say from the start that this one has the best accommodation I have ever seen for a student course. The hotel was amazing indeed and the room where I lived with another participant, truly excellent. I slept like a baby every night in there.

The food was very good as well.





I can say only : well done dear organizers! When I will orrange a summer school, I will do the same!


The program was a bit too crowded. One day we had classes until 9.3…
