Blue Monday

Hi guys,

Uff, that was close! Boy am I happy this day is over! I was reading the newspaper this morning, on my way to work! It was Monday, the tram was packed with other Monday haters like me, with their sour, sad faces. I had forgotten my book at home, and my lunch...And when I thought the day couldn't get much worse, there it was, front page, looking right at me, in bold letters, threatening...Blue Monday! The most depressing day of the year! Good luck being optimistic after reading that! I got to work and did a little research on this Blue Monday nonsense...turns out this s**t has a formula, calculated using several factors like weather, time since Christmas, time since failing our New Year's resolutions (wtf?),  low motivational levels, and feeling of a need to take an action... What can I say! It makes perfect sense...

Don't worry, people! There is also a so called "happiest day", in June. Looking forward to that!

Conclusion: researchers get really bored sometimes!

Have a wonderful week!

Weekend highlights

Hi guys,

After being trapped in a grey, foggy city for a whole week, it was great to finally see the sun during the weekend. On Saturday, I woke up happy and relaxed. My bedroom was filled with sunlight, my parents were about to arrive (yeeeey, home cooked food), I had no particular plans for the day, I would just be lazy and spoiled! This was my idea of a perfect Saturday and it turn out great!

My boyfriend and I started a little tradition, that lasted for a week. We recently went to see The Hobbit-Desolation of Smaug (which was awesoooome), and we thought it was a good idea to watch Lord of the rings all over again, having a different perspective on the plot and the characters. We split the trilogy into smaller parts, so we watched it over an entire week. We finished it on Saturday evening and I kinda miss the whole adventure, laying on the living room floor with nachos and beer, building my own little cinema in the comfort of my own home :).

Luckily, it won't be long before we'll be doing the same things all over again. Game of Thrones returns on April with a new season, so there are only 4 months left! Send a raven :)! Is it weird that I'm so excited?

I wish you all a wonderful week!

Summer nostalgia

It's Saturday morning, I woke up unusually early and I'm all nostalgic, browsing through pictures from last summer! Visiting France was definitely a dream come true. Especially the southern part! Every little village, with its amazing scenery, was like out of a fairy tale! It was beautiful! I only spent 3 days in the southern part of France, but I plan on returning, because there are so many places I would love to visit...!

Most of the photos below were taken in Albi! We got there in the afternoon, on our way back form Toulouse to Couiza! I wish we had more time to spend there, as I thought it was one of the most beautiful places I had ever seen. I especially loved the Gothic cathedral of Saint Cecile (which I later found out it is the world's largest brick cathedral, and part of UNESCO world heritage). Unfortunately, we weren't able to visit it, but it look pretty spectacular on the outside. It made me wonder what other timeless treasures does Southern France hide?!? I can't wait to discover them one day!

It's safe to say I miss those summer days!

Have a wonderful weekend!

It was a very good year for small town girls...

Puff, and the holidays are over! It’s a sad, sad, situation! On Friday I came back from Bulgaria, where I spent my winter holiday. When we first got to Bansko, we were welcomed by the same foggy, autumnal landscape as in Romania. Not a drop of snow… I was quite disappointed, especially because my holiday was supposed to be all about winter sports…Thankfully, we found enough snow on the slopes (both real and artificial), so everything turned put fine! I fulfilled my goal of learning something new on the snowboard, and on our last day I even succeeded to descend a 7 km slope :D. We spent 6 wonderful days in Bulgaria, snowboarding every single day. On New Year’s Eve, we took our bruised bottoms to dance to one of the many clubs in Bansko, which was full of Romanians.  It felt just like home :P

Holidays are over, and a new year has just begun! No more excuses! It's time for a fresh start and a billion new year’s resolutions.

Looking back at the year that just passed, I can’t complain. I had my loved ones with me, I kept my friends close, we were happy, healthy and joyful, which is all that I wish for 2014. 

Have an amazing year! Be happy!
