Today I wanted to wear something compfy yet cool. I put on my favorite H&M green slim jeans, a Calvin Klein jeans top, a nice blue Pull&Bear cardigan that goes pretty well with my hair, a white rubber Ice watch and my new cute Nice Air Max sneakers.

Nara Dreamland Theme park, Japan
This ethereal place was a theme park near Nara, Japan built in 1961 and inspired by Disneyland in California as you can see from the castle. The park was closed permanently in 2006.
Underwater City in Shicheng, China
The amazing underwater Shicheng, or Lion City is 1341 years old. It was submerged in 1959 because of the construction of the Xin’an River Hydropower Station. The water protects the city from wind and rain erosion, so it has remained enclosed beneath the water in a quite good condition.
La Petite Ceinture Railway, France
There is a Bulgarian version of the french toast and I’ve always done that. It’s just bread and eggs but it’s yummy as hell. However, I decided it’s time to try these and they came up pretty great too.
I started with melting some butter in a large skillet. Then I beat an egg, a pinch of sugar, cinnamon and some milk in a plate.
I placed the bread slices, one at a time, into the plate, letting the slices soak up the mixture for a few seconds, then carefully turned them to coat the other side. I put the slices on the skillet, heating slowly until the bottom became golden brown, then turned them to brown the other side.
- 5 bread slices
- 1 egg
- 20ml milk
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 20gr butter
- jam, maple syrup or whatever you like
That day I was going to the 382163 interview in a row and decided that my F&F butterfly dress would go perfectly for the position of a creative director. Too bad the offer wasn’t good enough but at least I got to share my outfit. I mixed it up with a Pull&Bear grey cardigan, black tights, Fred Perry flats, my now favorite white Ice watch and a high bun.
Milo in the snow
I’m one of the many under the unemployment curse. It’s been two months now and after the first pangs of disappointment, then the hope, at present I just find most of the interviews I’m going to ranging from uninteresting to absolutely ridiculous. My favorite questions that I’ve been asked at almost every interrogation are:
“How do you see yourself in five years?”
Well, I see myself as a CEO with a mansion, 50 cars, 20 dogs and perfect hair.
If I start with your company I see myself drinking heavily with my girlfriends in the next 5 years.
What the hell is that question? Of course everyone wants to be successful in the future and of course no one has control over it. Is this the first thing they teach them in HR school?? When you get to be a HR you have to ask people “How do you see yourself in five years?” 83612630 times a day, otherwise you have to choose to shoot yourself…
And next is the genius “At what sphere do you want to develop your career?”
I want to be a nuclear physicist but right now there are no vacancies so I’m applying for your marketing expert position.
They’ve got to be kidding me..
Yesterday, though, I had to fill one of those psychological tests that turned out to be the only criteria for the job. It had questions like “Do you pick your nose?”, “Do you gnaw your nails?” and “Do you often feel depressed?”. I’m sure no one wants a sulking nose-picker with bad nails but that was absurd. When I got my results it was like I was at a fortune teller not at a job interview: “You have a big problem at your present” and “You are determined and ambitious but you have to work on your responsibility”. Too bad she didn’t giveme the lottery winning numbers.
I definitely had a good laugh. My friends too. The thing is that if an utter moron happens to be more responsible than me, or if he doesn’t get bored with the test and reads all the question instead of clicking randomly on the answers, he’ll get the job. Instead of me. Too bad I have a Masters degree, I speak 5 languages and have good nails…
