About Brexit – From a Romanian living in Sunderland

I am a Romanian living in Sunderland, the first city to declare a win for the Leave side on the referendum last Thursday. I am one of the 3% immigrants in this God-forgotten city in the North of England and this is how I lived and felt the result of the Referendum.

At first I was angry and very concerned for a few reasons: my future in this country was/ is possibly in danger, my sister who was planning to come here for study might not be able to do it anymore and this is not the Britain that I’ve know for five years since I moved here. (more…)

We need to STAY

With three days to go before the referendum, I urge all my friends, everyone who I know, and everyone who I don’t know personally to vote STAY. I know, some of you will say my position is not surprising, given than I am an immigrant. Bur bare with me a second… because this is not only because I am a Romanian living in this country. I will stay anyway, I have lived in the UK for almost 5 years know, I have worked for two and I have contributed to this society. I already have the legal right to indefinite stay.

However, I am the crazy lady who checks facts and numbers. (more…)

Romania nu mai are credibilitate

Gigel Stirbu, fost Ministru al Culturii si vicepresedinte PNL, sustine ca imaginea Romaniei a fost lezata, ca tara noastra a fost ‘decredibilizata’ ‘la nivel european si international’ pentru ca am fost descalificati de la concursul Eurovision pe motiv ca TVR nu a platit o datorie veche de vreo noua ani. Cumva Stirbu sustine ca este vina Guvernului Ciolos, desi contributia pentru 2016 a fost platita, iar Guvernul Ciolos a venit la conducere abia la sfarsitul lui 2015. Aveti aici intreaga bazaconie.  (more…)

How I feel about Suits – season 5 finale


I am beginning to think I should start a blog on how I feel about TV shows. My friends and family know I’m a massive TV geek and I watch EVERYTHING! And I am quite passionate about some, I’ve got strong opinions about others. So here it goes.

(Massive Spoilers Ahead!!!)


Black-ish – S02E16. Sau cum am plans la o comedie

Daca nu urmariti Black-ish, va spun, ar trebui sa urmariti macar Episodul 16 din Sezonul 2. Nu am crezut ca as putea plange vreodata la o comedie, dar am plans la ‘Black-ish’.


Pe scurt, S02E16 este despre violenta politiei in USA si #BlackLivesMatter (desi nu mentioneaza ultima parte clar). Este despre cum un cuplu de parinti incearca sa isi educe copiii intr-o tara in care vietile lor sunt dispensabile.

De ce nu ma intereseaza ‘elita’


In lumina evenimentelor de la Colegiul National Tudor Vianu, din Bucuresti, aud tot mai des acest cuvant: “elita”. Ca e un liceu de elita, cu profesori de elita, cu elevi de elita… si ar trebui sa ii lasam sa faca lucrurile asa cum stiu ei (chiar daca asta inseamna umilirea unor elevi), pentru ca sunt elita si obtin rezultate bune la nustiuce olimpiade.


20 is the best time to be selfish

I am selfish. I’ve realised this recently. I live only for myself, I’ve got no strings attached and no massive responsibilities. I can spend lazy days reading or sleeping or just doing nothing. I can travel wherever I want, whenever I want. I can stay in bed writing this blog post with no one to disturb me. Just because I want to… Noticed the preponderance of the word ‘I’?
