I love clothes. I love browsing online stores, imagining how new trends in fashion will look on me. Before each trip - business or personal, I have a tradition of buying at least one piece of clothing as a symbol of a new adventure. Some call it shopping addiction, and I do feel guilty when … Continue reading Healthy Addiction?!
When you touch art…

Teaching, Mood Swings, and Literary Miracles
Teaching is such a capricious thing. It is definitely one of the professions that is mood-dependent. It has good days, great days, and absolutely the worst days.

I am genuinely happy when I … Continue reading what’s your passion?

It is a visual turn in culture - it is a digital age. During the day, we do some reading: scrolling down news, … Continue reading Fiction or Not?
