This week, a topic seemed to engross me. It wasn’t particularly triggered by something but instead it is a question I ask myself often ,and ever since I began to understand a little bit my situation or my world. And I’m speaking about old and new, about modernization and consistency, about values and wisdom. I’m asking myself: “How good are these changes?” “Would it be better to try to maintain this world?” Like it often happens, the answer is that we should fin...

How to win friends and influence people? This might be a question some of you have asked at some point in the past. Do you think it is about having reputation, about having money or success? Do you have to be an extrovert or to have some dark-magic techniques in order to make people go the way you want? Well, NO! And Dale Carnegie explains that in his book, which has as title exactly this question. This piece of writing is a self-help bestseller, one of the first ever published,...

Hi everyone! First of all let me say I’m very sorry for my absence, but I’ve been caught up between school starting and volunteering and other great, educational events. And I want to tell you about one of these! It is called “Seara de carte”, in Romanian, or in English, “The book evening”. I had the chance to get kind of close to the organizer of this event and so, I interviewed her about this project and many other aspects. (She is actually the one I choose for my...

This week, dedicated to NCD (Non Communicable Diseases), every young man/woman should take a moment and think about his/her life, what he/she might be doing wrong and what he/she could improve. Again, I am speaking about your own life. We all know empathy, productive relationships and helping others are beautiful emotions or actions for every man/woman to feel or do. And they are very much interconnected with our own and inner life: our mind and our body. Beautiful social and “...


Earth Overshoot Day 2014

Today is Earth Overshoot Day in 2014. This means that humanity has consumed in almost 8 months what the earth could produce in 1 year. So it would be necessary for us to have an-Earth-and-a -half to sustain the 7 billion-population of our planet. Or, to be more clear, our Earth needs 1 year and 4 months to renew the resources we used in 1 year. As you may expect, this day has occurred sooner and sooner each year. If in 1990 it was December, 24 years later it is August. Imag...

I want to talk to you today about taking action and making changes. We all know most of the problems we are confronted with, but we never do anything about it. Why? Maybe because we weren’t taught how to make changes and so we can’t see where they can take place or/and what we actually can do. This way, we end up frustrated and disappointed with humanity, not even imagining what we can do to heal the wounds it created. But lately I found a possible solution to this issue,...

In this world full of issues, darkness, unknown and fearful future, we tend to forget that we should be proud. We should be proud just for who we are, where we live, and the amazing people we have around! Even if we don’t have money, even if we feel hopeless, even if we feel alone, there’s always a place where each can find joy and peace with himself. And today, I want to tell you about what my country gives me to put in that place of mine. Well, of course, it literally giv...

Today, as I promised a while ago, I decided to write to you on the educational system in my country, Romania. This article is going to be mostly informative, but I will also try to observe some weak or/and positive points. I hope you will find it interesting and that it will help you have an insight on an educational system, similar or not to the one in your country. Firstly, you should know that education in Romania is based on a tuition-free system. There are 11 mandatory years...


A little bit on Romanian youth

This week I’ve been thinking about the youth in Romania and about its passions and interests. And slowly, I began to observe that these have started to estrange from culture, knowledge, true love or a lot other things that the human being is to be admired for. Let me explain this phenomenon. It starts with television, internet, newspapers and maybe others too. There you can see, by taking just a glance, examples of how to succeed in life without making an effort. Just an exampl...
