green leaves

I just need a coffee!

Coming back to Poznań wasn't very easy for me. I was spending my free time on the beach, or searching new, beautiful places for a walk with my dog ( he likes huge spaces like forests where he can just run without any obstacles) 

It results that there are so many places that I haven't been to in my neighborhood.  When I was living in Gdynia I thought nothing could surprise me because I knew that place like the back of my hand. But when you have a google map in your hand ( or maybe phone) it's really probably that you will find out about some new places like holy spring in the middle of the nearest forest.

  I think I'm getting older because I started to appreciate the peaceful sound of silence when I have a moment when I'm alone.  Every time when I want to read something not related to my university something appears and the possibility goes away. 
 I'm trying not to give up and keep on swimming like Ellen use to say, but with this whole autumn atmosphere, it's getting even harder. 
Thank God I have my friends :)

I never know how to name my posts, maybe any bits of advice?

Boa whoa woah

Just a quick note about my holidays.

I had a lot of free time to spend it as I wanted. Unfortunately time flies amazingly fast so all my plans that I Had made before went to oblivion. Thanks God I could rest and recharge my batteries for the upcoming universitary year.  THIS year is very special because of the fact that it's the last one at this university. I hate saying that but I got used to study. I could even say that I like studying and what's more I can't imagine my life without it. But what will the future bring only God knows.

If you have a spare hour you should see American film "the help" it is about Black Woman's situation in the United States. Maybe a little bit dramatic but definitely worth seeing. There was a horrible time for them when no one treated them as a human beings. What remains me to say is that it makes one reflect about what we have and how we disappreciate it.

Have a nice season with me!

weddings


My school friend is getting married.  There is a time in our lives that we think we have absolutely everything. But then something happens and we start reconsidering our goals.

 I think that moment has come now in my life.  Yesterday called me my friend and said that the other friend is getting married. Shall we go? Maybe.  

And something just awful came to my mind… why is she getting married? Is she happy? Doesn’t she want to travel, have fun and have time for herself?

When Have I started to think in such a strange way? What has changed? I don’t know.  If you had asked me like 3 years ago what I wanted I would probably said that I wanted a family, a husband, child, a dog… but now?  I want to visit places, learn languages and be spontaneous! But can I do all of it when I’m married? I don’t think so. 

They say that once you start learning languages your perspective changes and as a matter of fact,  I think that it makes you even a different person.  Sometimes you even realize that if it’s not about  an another language lover person, no one else wouldn’t understand you.


Maybe that’s why I don’t understand why are everybody getting married now!

Food

I love eating. I think that it’s the best thing that can happen to you when you’re angry/sad/happy/want to celebrate something/craving/anything else.

Last Friday came my boyfriend to spend weekend with me. He’s a strict meat-eater and let’s say meat-lover!!! I can assure you that he couldn’t live even a week without meat. Me, on the other hand, I don’t like meat very much but I can say that we always try to balance when it comes to that matter.  Anyways, this weekend we have had to choose between some restaurants that Poznań offers us and my favourite one is a vegan one. 

So what have I done?  I tried to trick him in some kind of way, as he, besides meat, loves sushi, I told him that we have to go and try a new place where they serve sushi,  but in a unique way. So he was excited ( so I was because of my wicked plan) and there we went! 

I ordered a Mexican plate and it was a mix of vegetables, fried banana, 2 different salsas and some Mexican bread. I loved it and so my boyfriend did! His sushi ( Japanese plate) was heavenly delicious, but it was made of vegetables and tofu.
 I wouldn’t exaggerate if I said that he was flattered. In front of us we had two different, of course vegan, plates and both were amazing! 

 Till the end of our lovely dinner he didn’t figure it out that it was a vegan restaurant. Later he had to assume that even if we don’t order meat, the dish can obviously be tasty.
What can I say? If you haven’t tried something please don’t try to convince me that it HAS TO be awful.

If you want to try it on your own:
Wypas Poznań is that place!

P.S I had a really nice weekend what about you guys?

Take care

The w word

Lately, I´ve been inspired  by my english class and I want to share with you some reflexions.

First of all Is it really possible to treat women as a worse/weaker/inferior individual? Maybe you will say I’m a racist but I hate that in muslim countries. They still treat women like if they were their slaves and what’s more, they, through  years and years, got used to this so it’s now part of their tradition. I can’t stand it how can they be so obedient and change, well you cannot change something that always has been like that but no matter, for your men. 
Where’s  this beautiful image of love and happiness  showed in Bollywood movies?

One day I watched a lovely publicity on youtube, it was Italian. At the beginning they asked small Italian boys to describe a sweet, young European girl.  
They were obviously ashamed but loads of sweet words came out of their mouths.  On the next step they were encouraged  to touch and caress her cheek and they did that with serous pleasure.

Trouble started when they consequently were asked to hit her  and suddenly they petrified. There was no way to touch her in that way for them. Why?

 No one knows. This is just the amazing child delicacy and subtlety. Why and where it disappears later when they get to the awful period of puberty?


Anyways… I was blabbering about women and women rights wasn’t I? I think that it’s horrible that we live in such a developed world and society and as a women we can still feel worse that the other sex.

being happy


I’m pondering about clothing. 

I’m not the person who loves shopping though.  Every single day when I get up I try to put on something that will make me feel  comfortable and warm all day long. I can’t say that I’m good in this kind of things like matching stuff but there are things that make me happy I guess. 
My obsession is buying new shoes, I have loads of pairs specially trainers, sport shoes and high heels (which I don’t really wear often). But trousers? Shirts? I used to buy many dresses but not anymore as I realised that I didin’t actually wear any of them.
 My huge problem is that when I finally go to the shop I can’t find anything that would please me. Maybe I’m too picky but fashion is horrible! 
 Why shirts can’t be just shirts without all those prints, short lengths and so on? 
When I was younger I tended to put on something that would seem nice for people which I was dating or I was hanging out with that time. I’m not that kind of person anymore. 


The whole idea of dressing for someone is pointless I think. We should wear things that are comfy. The other matter is that it should be warm when it’s cold outside. I think that I won’t exaggerate when I say that buying too short jacket is simply foolish. Maybe you will look great in front of your friends but freezing is the worst thing that can happen I guess…


So as a consequence let’s say that being a teenager is a very nasty thing.

Nature

I'm writing this post from the park's bench. Sun is shining and I'm reconsidering my life as always when I'm surrounded with nature and all by myslef.
Birds are chirping, what a lovely word isn't it?

I love spring especially when it's not so cold, you're not freezing and there is loads of things to do besides watching tv series in your bed. But... stop! Where's my energy gone? Last year this time I was riding my bike, exploring city and running at least 3 times a week. What has changed?
Maybe I work more.. maybe the circumstances aren't as they should be...
Well even though I'm really grateful for my friends and time spent while having fun.
MY feeling related to the water are so intesive! I love being near to the river, sea, oceans, even those small water springs!!!
Why is it so incredibly awsome for me?
I appreciate every minute spent in a place where the lake or sea is.

Tomorrow will be different day I suppose. Don't let negativity take control over you life and hopes. There is still something special waiting for you.

 Nothing else left, push the boundaries!

Love,
A
