First half of EVS done: my thoughts and hopes.

Polish lesson of the day: I.NEED.SHOES.

I am writing this post a bit earlier than expected, due to the fact that I will be gone from Kraków for two weeks at least: I will travel to Gdańsk in a couple of days, and then from there to Toruń for the midterm training, and finally I will fly to Sardinia to visit family and celebrate Carnival season (do expect mentions of this festivity in the next post).

New year’s resolutions: the Never Ending (Story) List

When faced with the challenge of planning, or organizing, or simply making a list of things that need to be done I often find myself at a loss at first: what to choose? What to exclude? What if I don’t write something down and I forget it?

I am pretty sure you can hear me moaning in annoyance from afar.

So, why do this? Why sit down one random day of january (when this kind of stuff should have been done on the last days of december, on top of it!) to write a more or less long list of resolutions? Mostly, because I think it is fun: you prepare your nice piece of paper at the beginning of the year and then, at the end of it, you check for what has been accomplished and what has been not; then, at that point, you can have a good laugh with your friends because you wrote ridicoulous things like “ride to Fantasia on top of a white luckdragon”.

Of course you wrote that while still nursing the hangover from New Year’s Eve party, but that’s an irrilevant detail.

Dreaming of a white Christmas, or: Sara waiting for snow

It is THAT time of the year again, folks: Santa is coming to town and we all have to hope we were put into the “nice” list.

I have a strong belief that I have been very nice this year: I graduated from University, I got accepted into the EVS program, and I learnt how to say the greetings in polish.

Yup, nice enough.

Sara lost in Poland: take one.

November is here and it’s time for me to write my first entry.

I have been in Kraków nearly for a month and a half and so far it has been a blur of clothes strewn everywhere, meetings and workshops, and trying not to get lost in a big city.

Which happened twice, thanks to my poor sense of direction.
