I might be a fox, but I prefer to be called a “journalist”, thank you!

JOURNALISTS are scabs, leeches, hounds and foxes! some will spit – er, I mean, protest. They are sometimes known as “hacks”, a colourfully descriptive term only a handful in the profession may take pride in, whilst the majority squirm at the mere thought of even being classed alongside it. In my eyes, hacks are thick-skinned,… Continue reading I might be a fox, but I prefer to be called a “journalist”, thank you!

Behind my soul’s curtains

You can call me obsolete, because I still love radio theater when there are movies like Avatar… You can condemn me for loving the smell of old books that I can only find in big libraries… You can say I am boring for listening to Mozart … or for feeling happy when I listen to Bach… Continue reading Behind my soul’s curtains

Thoughts of a sleepless diva Part II

Being a woman was never easy and it is not just going to become any easier as time goes by. Being a woman is hard and even harder to admit it without being blamed for playing the martyr card…another cliché I despise. Problem is that, for all of us, there is a point in life when… Continue reading Thoughts of a sleepless diva Part II

Letter from eternity

I am one of those creature that can’t define themselves. I can’t think of myself or see myself in any mirror or surface and I have just my inner world. As much as I would like to invite you inside this inner world I have, it is something that most of you fear and some… Continue reading Letter from eternity

God is a cool guy

Yes He is. And a funny one as well. That’s why I kind of love him in the most non-religious way possible which is why I say kind of. I don’t believe God was so lazy that He created the world in 7 days…like as He was hanging out in Heaven He had no time… Continue reading God is a cool guy

Thoughts of a sleepless diva

Because no text in the world should ever start with „because” , I will start it like that. As I will make sure everyone who reads this understands how I am not a diva (lol), not even in the same zipcode with this notion which appears to be so highly respected nowadays. 2.56 a.m. Can’t… Continue reading Thoughts of a sleepless diva

Superstiții mioritice non-sense

Dragilor, în secțiunea noastră de lifestyle se cerea un articolaș despre superstițiile la români. Fie că unii le aplică mai mult și alții mai puțin, ce-ar fi România fără tradiție, obiceiuri și superstiții balcanice? Retoric vorbind, evident. De câte ori nu ați suferit de caniculă din pricina conaționalilor care nu deschid fereastra de teama curentului?… Continue reading Superstiții mioritice non-sense

Spune-mi ce citești ca să-ți spun cine ești

Cum e să fii conservator nu doar în atitudine cât și în preferințe. Păi, în principiu, e rău. E mișto să fii eminescian, sadovenian și chiar bacovian, pentru că asemenea aplicații literare sunt nu doar comerciale dar și accesibile publicului larg. Rebreanu când a scris ”Ion” a scris pentru ăilalți Ioni care se regăsesc în… Continue reading Spune-mi ce citești ca să-ți spun cine ești

E mișto să fii altfel!

Am ajuns la concluzia, deloc înălțătoare, că adorăm unicitatea dar urmăm banalitatea, ca și concepte reprezentative pentro societatea îndoliată în care trăim. Nu, nu am de gând să mă explic, deși am fost tentată. Cine are ceva de priceput, pricepe. Cumva, să fii tu într-o lume care se identifică în principiu cu superficialitatea, a devenit… Continue reading E mișto să fii altfel!
