Today, for the first time in a long time, I went to a bookstore and got me some books. Since I moved to Oklahoma City I was dying to go to a bookstore, but never actually had the chance. So, after breakfast, I begged my dad to take me book-shopping, and he couldn’t reject his favorite daughter, he took me there 🙂 .
They say “never judge a book by its cover” but somehow, unintentionally it is what happens with most of us. We go to a bookstore and search for a book, whichever catches our attention the first/most, we approach for it. It was what happened with me too. I didn’t have a book list to search exactly for a book, I was only searching for a book that I could enjoy.

Some days ago, I have received an e-mail from WordPress celebrating our first anniversary. 🙂 I was shocked at first, knowing a year has passed since I have launched this blog. A big. damn. year. Not too long after, I was embarrassed of myself, knowing that I have only published around ten blog posts.
I had a dream you know, I launched this blog with passion, with determination. Where the hell has that determination gone?
I set plans, do my tasks, and I give my best. But lately, I get the feeling of having A LOT on my plate. And big full plate of responsibilities and plans for myself dragged me down. But don’t get me wrong, not because my plate was full, but because I haven’t really adapted a new lifestyle for my plate standards. I can be in one place, but I tried to be everywhere. I have 24 hours a day, I thought I had more. I can never be educated enough, I supposed my knowledge would suffice. Do you get this?
If you do, and if you feel the same sometimes, here’s a tip: you better change your lifestyle.

For a long time I’ve been told that I can’t do things, because I was “just a kid” or I was “not old enough”. These comments that I was getting lead me to a point where I gave up on myself. Until recently, I was googling about entrepreneurs I found a site where there was written stories of teen entrepreneurs. All of them was pretty interesting but I was totally amazed when I read Grace Connor’s.

I get super excited when I come across some breath-taking, deep, and powering inspirational quotes. And some of you may know, like many people I am sort of addicted to reading and sharing inspirational quotes. 🙂
What is inspiration? Why do we feel inspired when we read a saying of (mostly) famous people? I believe that we have it in ourselves, it is like a trigger. And when we read a quote, it makes us come clean to the idea that something IS in fact reachable and only obstacle is us.
Experience does the job. If a person is experienced it means he/she knows something, something that can be taught. Only then, we listen to their sayings, or we care about their opinions. Because they have been there and done all that. For you. We learn by making mistakes. They have done the mistakes and giving us counsels and advice so that we don’t need to make those mistakes.
There are thousands and thousands of inspirational quotes. It’s the thing about inspiration. We can get inspired by even a word sometimes, if said by the right person. 🙂
Here I gathered for you 20 inspirational quotes from successful and well-known people.
You must have come across many of them but it is always a good option to remind ourselves.

It is a lovely afternoon here in Warsaw but I’m stuck in my bed due to my sickness. Early in the morning I was utterly bored (I am not a home-person, really) and started thinking about things, small things, silly things. It was one of the times when I just stare at the ceiling and ask myself stupid questions. But strange enough, soon I realized one of the questions I asked myself wasn’t that stupid. It was: “Why am I not blogging anymore?”. I remembered all those times my mother was telling me to write again, or my friends asking me why I stopped. But then, a more serious question popped into my head: “Why did I start?”. And here’s why:

Many students from different parts of the world are facing a serious enforcement. Starting from the childhood, they re required to learn additional languages in schools. Only if they can, they will make a progress, because otherwise, many doors opening to tremendous opportunities are closed for them. Some universities don’t even accept mo
olingual students. If a student has a fair degree of English, only then, he or she gets the chance to apply to a university. To learn new languages is gaining popularity day-by-day. Especially interests on English have risen dramatically.

Finally it is Ramadan – the month of spiritual discipline, by fasting, abstinence and prayer during daylight hours. Ramadan is really important for us, and that’s why it is said that “Ramadan is the sultan of eleven months.”
In the evenings, Muslims gather for a special prayer called Tarawih. Then, at night we have Sahoor – the breakfast before sunrise. Muslims do not eat or drink from sunup to sundown during Ramadan, so their first meal of the day is eaten very early. As long as the sun is in the sky, able-bodied Muslims refrain from food, drink and sexual intercourse. This is meant to be a time of mental, spiritual and physical purification. Fasting ends at sunset with dates and a meal – Iftar.

Summer is almost here. So, as always I was making my monthly plans and suddenly a question hit my mind –“is summer my favorite?” many of you would have asked the same or a similar question to yourselves, let’s dig it up then.
“Winter is a good time to stay in and cuddle, but put me in summer and I’ll be a happy snowman!” says Olaf, which revokes the feeling that each season is good in its own, but summer particularly is good-er.
