Hello 🙂 I am sorry for not posting in such a long time (and thus completely failing with my 2016 goals) but my inspiration is at all time low. I do post photos from time to time on my Instagram account (check me out: rorypaw) but I haven’t managed to write a single word of my story yet. So for those few of you who do read it,I am sorry. But there are some things in store for my blog for which I am very excited about. It takes time to arrange everything but I hope you will like it 🙂
The weather here is ever-changing; it can go from spring in the morning to bitter winter in the night.
The sight of blossoming trees and colorful meadows,however, stays unchanged.
In my free time, I am (re)reading A Dance with Dragons to prepare myself for Winds of Winter (which I hope will be released rather sooner than later) 😀
Also, I have been accepted into the university choir which is a big deal for me because of my stage fright (you can imagine how scared I was to sing in front of everyone at the audition). We have rehearsals in the evenings,which I quite like.
Last week has been mentally and physically exhausting (I barely slept 3 hours per night) due to some unpredictable events. So I am grateful to be alive this weekend 😀
I hope you are all doing well and enjoying this early spring 🙂
This is the day on which we should all remind ourselves of the fair treatment of women in our society. People say that the western society has grown and that feminism in first world countries is not necessary anymore. True,there are countries where women are treated legally inferior to men and they need harsher feminist policy but inequality happens everywhere on a daily basis. Women are much less paid than their male colleagues, there are far too few women on leading possitions and if you take a look at some very banal things such as tv commercials you will see that inequality is still present with us. And the only way to stop this is through education. If we teach young girls and boys that your gender,your race, your nationality,even your parents, don’t define who you are and what you can do, the world will change.
I am proud that my country is making progress ; we have a female president, we had a female prime minister, deans and principals of our universities, colleges and schools are equally represented by men and women.
On this day, we should remember our mothers and grandmothers and how hard they’ve worked for us,but not ignoring our fathers and grandfathers. We need to work on our society as a whole where every little individual counts,towards our future. When the society is healthy, the nature around us will be too.
It feels so good to be back home again. The nature is starting to bloom, the weather is warm and sunny and the animals are starting to roam near the forest again ( I promise I will bring my phone with me on my morning walks one day, to take photos of fawns and rabbits).
A few days ago, I woke up at dawn and my window was bathed in warmth:
Later that day I stumbled upon some snowdrops near my house:
My mom and I baked some delicious treats called Princess cakes ( maybe they are called differently in your country? ). They have a nice vanilla taste so they are perfect to eat in the evening.
P.S.- sorry for not taking better photographs of the cakes,they were just too good to be left sitting around 😀
