''It was the best of times, it was the worst of times''

   The long-awaited moment has arrived. I finally graduated! And I won't lie, despite all the ugly memories, I was a little bit nostalgic. Because highschool meant so much more than a fleeting period in my life. It meant learning to stand up for myself, losing some friends and gaining others, making my own decisions and being proud of them, falling in and out of love, letting go of the toxic people in my life, accepting other people's flaws, appreciating all the little things.


I'm happy I got to live all those moments because they made me who I am. Because of them I have more confidence in myself and I know I can get over anything. 

Four years ago I was a shy, little girl who was afraid to talk. I had never won a prize, I was never interested in anything that had to do with Academics, all my teachers thought I was a lost cause. Today I proved to  myself I can do anything I put my mind to. I finished second and most importantly, I was surrounded by people close to my heart. 

Excuse the face. Five hours of walking on high heels will do that to you! 

Not every picture is perfect :))

Next week I'll go to the prom and I have to confess, I am just a tiny bit nervous. Because, just as graduation, prom is an important step that once taken leaves behind a whole part of our life. A part that was safe and familiar. A part that hopefully prepared us for the next big thing: university!

all you need

   ...is that perfect song on that perfect drive to feel infinite.


I love going places and listening to good music. And when the two are combined what more could I want?

shiny,happy people

   Today, we celebrated Easter so I went to a family meal at my cousin's house. I laughed a lot and spent hours remembering our childhood and the silly things we did.


I drove again for almost 100 km and I felt great when I realized I had started to be more relaxed and comfortable behind the wheel.

There are still 2 days left until school starts and I plan on going to see Iron Man 3 for the second time. I went with my sister on Friday and I'll go with Radu too because it was way too awesome ( has anyone else noticed Gwyneth Paltrow's amazing body? ). I also hope I'll get to finish 'Looking for Alaska' because I know for sure I won't have enough time once school starts. By the way, I can't believe I only have 3 weeks left before I'm done with highschool forever! Like Charles Dickens said: ''it was the best of times, it was the worst of times...''. Anyway, I'm anxious to be done with this step and move on. I have big dreams for the future and I can't wait to make them come true!

sand in our pockets and nothing on our mind

   Unfortunately,I'm back in Bucharest after 3 amazing days at the seaside. Everything is kind of a blur now because so many,many things have happened.


   We initially wanted to stay in Vama Veche , a village well-known for its 1st of May parties on the beach but since we couldn't find any available hotels, we slept in a nearby village. The place was really quiet and provided a nice contrast to the noisy atmosphere in Vama.

   Every day I tried having as much fun as I could, knowing what the next 3 months will bring ( studying for exams, taking exams, studying for other exams and so on ) and I think I managed. I couldn't stop comparing these 3 days with the last time I went to the seaside with a group of people. I guess this comes to show that you just have to find the right kind of people for you. In the past I'd always sacrifice my principles for 'the greater good'. It was silly and I was the one getting hurt in the end. So the fact that these days were full of laughter, happiness and that I didn't have to accept people I didn't like was very eye-opening.


I'm only sad because we didn't get to see the sunrise but there's always next time.

there's nothing better than being dragged in the water while you're still dressed

Perfect song for our time at the seaside:
