929 pages of experience

I have a university friend of mine, that always comes to me for industry and “grown-up people” advice. I cannot tell you how honored and happy that makes me. It also generally makes me want to be a better person, so that next time she comes up to me, I can share all of the new insights I’ve learned with her.

We were recently talking about books. I love books, buying books, stacking books and home, but also recommending them to others. So she knew I was the right person to ask.

И това направихме – отидохме при приятелите ни в Регенсбург, което е в Бавария, на около 600км от нас. Дядо, Регенсбург също е на Дунава! Continue reading “Регенсбург и Дунава”

Making traditional Balkan food under modern circumstances abroad

I have been living out of the motherland for almost 3 years now. To be very honest, I have only recently started to miss my home and the “taste” of it. I miss how the breakfast bakeries smell of fat and oil, I miss how the tomatoes smell and mainly miss how it all tastes. Everything here in Germany has a different taste. Sometimes I am afraid that if I don’t look when I am eating, I will not know the difference between a cucumber and an apple… Continue reading “Making traditional Balkan food under modern circumstances abroad”

“Nice Girls (Still) Don’t Get the Corner Office: 101 Unconscious Mistakes Women Make That Sabotage Their Careers” by Lois P. Frankel, PhD

I stumbled upon “Nice girls (still) don’t get the corner office” while I was shopping for a book-present for my boyfriend. I found it in the hidden and dusty back of a shelve, where it remained unloved and was silently waiting for me to find it.
