Remembering my first love: Events

Recently, I talked to a friend. To a dear friend that I haven’t talked to in ages. I guess that’s what happens when you live in different countries. And it was a good talk. A talk in which I bared my soul and told her all that I felt about my current life, my job,…

#Stonesism

I was excited to move to London not because of finding a new job, a new house, a new life. I was excited to see the  Rolling Stones ‘Exhibitionism’ exhibition at Saatchi Gallery before it ended on the 4th of September. I saw The Rolling Stones in 2007, during their ‘A Bigger Bang’ World Tour….

Birmingham Jazz and Blues Festival – Part 2

My mother came to visit me yesterday, as I have my graduation tomorrow! Finally! So I decided to take my mom and my friend to a concert on the last day of the Birmingham Jazz and Blues Festival. I decided to go see Brooks Williams, as he seemed interesting from YouTube. And he also played…

Birmingham Jazz and Blues Festival Part 1

Today was the first concert I saw that was a part of the Birmingham Jazz and Blues Festival. I’ve been living around the area for three years, but I’ve only ever been able to go today (as during the last two years I was visiting my relatives). So this year a friend and I decided…

Art meets fashion meets art meets fashion.

I love Birmingham. I really do. And it always baffles me when someone tells me that they dislike it and want to move away as soon as possible. However, I sometimes wish to move to a London museum when I see the exhibitions this wonderful capital city has to offer. This week, the Yayoi Kusama…

‘Dracula: When Art Meets Myth’ Visual Design

On the 2nd of April 2016, I organised an art exhibition alongside Andreea Cojocaru. It took place in Centrala, Birmingham City Centre, and it was a huge success!   However, to get to this point, I had to design some posters and whatnot. Having had an argument with our graphic designer due to not being…

Atypical Easter

Yesterday, the 1st of May, was Easter for me, as, back home, most people are orthodox, so we celebrate it on a different date. (Don’t ask me why though) It’s usually a day where you eat continuously and invite all your relatives to lunch-dinner-breakfast. And have copious amounts of alcohol. My day started fairly typically,…

6 differences between Vampires in the West and those in the East

There are more types of vampires than expected. And there are some major differences between those in the West of Europe and those in the East. 1. Vampire basics Everybody knows the way a vampire acts: terrifying creatures that attack people and drink their blood, or that enchant them and cause them pain and suffering,…

It’s *NOT* dangerous to go alone

I’ve never attended events on my own. Ever. I’ve only bought a ticket to a networking event after convincing a friend to come with me. I once wanted to go to a Death Angel concert, and no one wanted to come with me, so I bought a ticket for my cousin so I wouldn’t go alone….

Trying to be a nice employer while broke

Ok, so I’m not an actual employer. I am a student. Currently unemployed. But I have to organise an event for my final year project. And it has something to do with music – not entirely sure what yet. But I would probably need the help of at least two camera operators, sound technician(s), maybe…
