good things list / november


hello-hello! it is time for an eleventh monthly good things list. i always try to be as open and as sincere as possible, so let me tell you this - november was a hell of a month. it started well and everything seemed fine, but then it turned out that my mother had to undergo an operation, then she was at an icu and spent some more time at the hospital, so for a brief period my days started and ended at the hospital. it was stressful and scary. i spent my days acting tough and my nights crying my eyes out. i kept on working, even though it was hard to concentrate my thoughts on anything apart from my mom`s health. nothing else mattered. i just wanted her to get better, and, luckilly, she did. it was a huge relief and i am thankful for it. i am just happy to talk to her every day.

fifty books in eleven months


two thousand sixteen is not even over yet and i am already summarizing what it has been like. reading plays a major role in my life and this is the first time, when i got a chance to properly analyze it. when the year started, i had a notion that i wanted to get better at organizing and structuring my life. i asked myself, how could i do it? tracking my reading habits seemed like a good way to start. eleven months later i have some results to share with you, as well as quite a few details on when and how i have read fifty books in eleven months (nine, if to be perfectly frank).

five movies to watch / part two


i have recently had a couple of extra challenging weeks, and as a result, my mind has been concentrated on dealing with one particular issue and nothing else. as i am getting back into my regular routine, i started wondering - what was i looking forward to or what could i look forward to? there were a few answers, and watching a new movie was one of the first ones to come to mind. everything good is better when shared, right? this is why today i would like to tell you about five movies that i cannot wait to watch in the nearest future.

meet tanya khvorostiana


well, well, well! hello-o-o-o <3 after an unexpected two-week break, i am thrilled to be back, and there could be no better way to do it than by sharing a very-very special interview! i am almost sure that you have heard of tanya khvorostiana already, but if you have not - fasten your seatbelt, your world is gonna be rocked soon. let me give you some context. i have seen tanya`s pictures on instagram a few times and i have obviously pointed out to myself that her eye was a special one. she managed to tell stories using images as a tool in a very distinguished way. tanya has been studying in barcelona for three years and has just moved to berlin, when i started following her last year. every time she posted something, i got excited and i wanted more, more, more. her feed was well-thought content of a very genuine kind. she followed me back and then there was snapchat, that kind of brought us together and at some point it was very clear that we had to meet in person.

one year of blogging



exactly a year ago i clicked on "publish" for the first time here, on the blog. this post became a new chapter for me. also i wrote this one in order to explain better what the whole "what being twenty is like" concept was about. since then i have published ninety four posts and i cannot wait to write more. so what was it all like for me three hundred sixty five (actually six) days ago?
