Malinka's Studio

A crazy girl, in a small studio :) :) :)

I feel excited about my life and i really like it!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERATime heals nothing, its what you do during that time that counts, its how you feel and what transformation happen to you is the most important.

Dear friends, Budapest is an amazing city!!! it has greatness and a historic
atmosphere that is amazing, especially during the winter with all the lights and
snow. I don’t know if this is just the adrenaline of just moving here or if this will last for a while, but I really hope it will !!!

Another interesting aspect is the discovering of people, it is amazing how different people are, compared to what I was told about them or compared to the stereotypes i know about their nation/region…

I am away from my family for the holidays but I try to stay positive, to focus on new things and new people!

In simple words, I feel excited about my life and i really like it! 🙂 🙂 🙂

It might sun but I just don’t see it

I recently received a job offer in another country and I accepted it with no reserves. I do not know why but I am not happy where I live now. Everybody keeps showing me that I have all the possible conditions to be very happy and still I’m not. I have my own place, I make good money for witch I work hard and still I can’t feel any enjoyment. I was thinking that this could be because I was single but I was dating someone and it didn’t make me feel any better. It is like everybody keeps pointing to the sun and I can’t see or feel it. It is the holidays season and I’m running from what I call now “my home” with no remorse.
Before leaving I made the usual steps: farewell party and making my boss very angry with this decision, he said that anyone with half of brain would see that this is a bad choice! I organised 2 parties: for my ex-colleagues and for my friends. At the first one only 1 person showed up and at the second – 4. I appreciate their efforts with all my hearth since the weather was terrible but this again proves my point: I’m not happy here, I don’t even have friends.
The move is very very sudden and I have to leave tomorrow morning. I was very lucky to find a place to stay, I received some important documents, managed to rent my own apartment and clarified all possible issues. I feel like faith is telling me that this is a good leave. I hope that this will be true and that in this new country I will find whatever it is missing from my life.
I read a book about a Russian girl that dreamed that she will see the sea. She felt that she will not be happy until this happens. When she grew up that was the only thing on her mind: to see the sea. When she finally reached it, by the seashore she was stabbed by some drunk sailors… I am just afraid that some random people will kill my hope that some other place will be different. The only different thing  is that I’m only half Russian and half Romanian so I believe that it doesn’t apply to me 🙂 🙂 🙂
I am writing now from the center of my pity party were the only guest that arrived is me and the only reason why I am posting this is because I’m tipsy and probably will delete it tomorrow.
I hope to write soon with the very first impression of Budapest, this is where I’m moving. Since I’m so self-centered I wanted to write about my fears and not about the city of witch I know frankly nothing, yet 🙂 🙂 🙂

Failure to launch

Look my friends: this is the smile of a loser.
I tried to switch to my own site ( and could’t. Because of my poor technical skills and mainly because of my location, the server kept having errors. I feel a bit like a loser but that’s alright, losers are people that didn’t win just yet, but they are very close. Now I have to smile and move on to simple thinks that I can understand and that I can really control: like take pictures in my bathroom 🙂
Happy Sunday everyone!

Salutare lume! Faceti cunostiinta cu nepotica mea – Ana- Maria (de 11 ani) Ei ii place sa citeasca foarte mult si ma intrebat daca pot sa-i recomand niste carti bune.

2. Alta problema este: cartile care imi par portivite nu sint disponibile in limba romana

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn  de Mark Twain
3. Gavroche and Cosette (fragments) de Victor Hugo

Good books for girls (age 10-12 years old)

for Romanian version please click here: Carti bune pentru fetite de 11-12 ani

Hello world – please meet my niece – Ana Maria, she is 11 y.o. She likes to read very much and she asked if I could recommend some good books. I am thrilled about her passion and would like to give a list of inspirational books, which will motivate her to be a smart and ambitious women, just like her auntie 🙂 ; at the same time, I am stuck with these issues:
1. I don’t want her to read the usual adventure books that have as main character a boy, I want books with characters that she can relate to.
2. Another problem is that the ones I believe are very good are not translated in Romanian, which is the language she reads in.
3. I don’t want to give her any inappropriate books for her age.

So I started a book hunt, for the best books for a teen (or pre-teen) girl! I will keep you posted on the final list! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
of course, all of you are more than welcome to recommend some titles, all my best regards in advance!

Posting quotes from 50 Shades of Grey ?

I have to start with admitting that I didn’t read any book from the trilogy – 50 Shades of Grey, but I will. All I know about it is from the reviews that are all over the internet, but basically, it is a sensual and erotic book. I am pissed of that some of my friends find inspirational quotes from this book, they post it on their Skype, Messenger and Facebook pages. I read the quotes and I am amazed: how is that a quote? what does it teach or suggest to you? Is that were we are right now, to get inspired by random lines with no deep meaning??? Seriously, out of all the great authors out there, the only one that inspires people these days is Erika Leonard aka  E. L. James ?
If you read the book and feel that I my indignation is not justified, please let me know! I would love to be wrong, but I just know that I’m not 🙂 🙂 🙂

I’m sorry, you’re just not my type!

I always wondered what people really mean when they say: I’m sorry, you’re just not my type! I heard men and women saying it; I recently had to say it to a wonderful man: I couldn’t feel free around him, I couldn’t relate to anything he said; he is from a different world and I felt like an idiot the whole time.
I never had a clear definition of what my “type” of men is, so I thought about it for a while. The only clear explanation that came into my head is this: everybody has a sens of himself and in order to fall in love with someone else, he/she must feel that person on the same level, on the same page, using the same life principles (more or less), activating in the same groups (again, more or less). It is not a matter of a high/low self appreciation, it is merely a clear perception of who you are and who you can accept to be around you. I remember being  fascinated by doctors until I dated one. After that I came to the conclusion that he is not my type, I could’t accept his attitude towards people (which was altered by his medical practice), the same when I couldn’t date someone for a longer time because I always felt morally intimated (he felt the need of proving that he is much smarter). The good thing about these experiences is I learned something out of each one of them: not to date a doctor or a smart ass… but as soon as I determine what my type is it happens that I tend to like totally another type of person!!! Of course, people often say that opposite attract but this is not a general rule. If people are extremely different and their daily activities or passions are different, they say in the end: I am sorry, you are not my type.
It has happened that I was told this, when I was so sure that I was his type 🙂 !!! so I am curious, what is your definition of: you are not my type? and when was the last time you have used it? of course, I am not going to ask anyone the last time it was said to them 🙂 🙂 🙂

This is what makes life freaking fantastic – road trip!

I went to a road trip to Cluj-Napoca, Romania with some co-workers, my first one ever! Please believe me that this place looks as astonishing in reality as it does in the picture!  It took 13 hours until the destination but none of us felt tired 🙂

We crossed the mountings, passed so many serpentine roads and seen many cities! There I meat Camelia; I must say a big thank you to her for hosting me ( here you can find more about her). She is an amazing girl, very friendly, beautifull and smart!
We didn’t have a very clear program so we ended up eating ice cream, seeing the sights, singing (out of tune) songs and making pictures! This atmosphere, laughter and positive energy made my days freaking fantastic!!! I feel like I am the friends-and-family type of person with no friends or family anywhere near me so this time was a blessing!!! This made me wonder: how come I don’t have any friends in my current city? It is because of the lack of mounting air??? Yep, that must be the reason 🙂
