The past years I chose not to compile a new years’ resolutions list because I thought it would be quite difficult to stick to it. And a lot could change and items could have to be deleted from or inserted in my list. Not such a good reason, right? Well, what the last year has taught me, is that planning can be and usually is a valuable asset. This year, I’ve decided to assert some time tomorrow and think about what and how I would like to evolve in the next year. And I think ev...

Well, let alone the free time and tons of sleep, winter holidays are for me and for many others, I hope, an occasion for freedom in spirit, for thinking, for considering your values. I love Christmas because, in my case, it is about traditions and it is tied with some kernel inside me which was developed there by dint of past and habits. To be more precise, Christmas in Romania is a very complex tradition and it is always specially celebrated. Like in a lot of other countries,...

I bet you already think I’m a hopeless romantic, but I’m not. Quite the opposite. And in spite of that I managed to discover profound, delicate and still present morality problems in this series which confront criticism of being just a soap opera. To begin with, I think you ought to know some things about it. Downton Abbey is a TV series set in Britain and the action takes place between the years 1910-1930. It is centered round a huge house in Britain, one belonging to a lord...

Do one thing! I’ve been thinking about this urging affirmation for some time now, trying to figure out what I would like to urge people to do. And I reached the conclusion that I would like people to try and see things from others perspective. To begin with, this activity, of trying to walk into somebody else’s shoes is of the utmost importance. We are all humans and consequently we are defined by our interactions with others. And, unfortunately we haven’t build yet a machi...

Well, there’s something I learnt last Sunday, on 16th November where the second tour of presidential elections in Romania took place. What I learned? That people matter. A lot. These elections have offered a huge surprise to all Romanians: on one hand, we selected a President which is part of the German minority in my country; on the other hand, the percentage of people who went to vote was one of the highest in the last 25 years of Romanian democracy. I won’t speak too m...

I think we all have thought about how it would be if you were the President of your country. Every time it came to my mind, I told myself instantly “What a great deal of work would that be … “. Maybe it is not the attitude you expected, but think a little bit: there are a lot of responsibilities you have to take on and I think very few people are able to manage them with success. But, what if I woke up this morning and I was the president of Romania? I’m going to ignore the...

"I'll keep working hard every day to go and be a champion one day." That’s Simona Halep. And this is one of the many quotes I’ve enjoyed from her and which made me proud of her and determined. This week I decided to speak about this tennis player and her influence on me and my country. First of all, I want to present a little bit her life. Because maybe more than anything else, Simona is a woman, a human being and a fighter. She’s born on the 27th of September 1991 in Con...
