Song of the day 17#

Am ales sa pun aceasta melodie la Song of the day pentru ca are un „acel ceva”.

Nu stiu de ce dar mi-a ramas in minte, o tot repet desi nu mi-e chiar atat de draga.

Intrebare: Pe mine videoclipul ma duce cu gandul la filmele cu vampiri. Am citit eu prea mult cartile autoarei Anne Rice, prea multe Jurnale ale vampirilor si Academii ale Vampirilor, dar cred ca am dreptate. Voi ce parere aveti? Pe unde va plimba gandurile acest videoclip?

English version

I chose to put this song on Song of the day category because it has a certain „something.”

I do not know why but I still remember, I repeat it, even though Its not that dear to me.

Question: This video makes me think of vampire movies. Maybe I’ve read too much Anne Rice’s books, too many Vampire Journals and Vampire Academy, but I think I’m right. What do you think? Where does this video takes you to?

Banii in bataia vantului/ Money in the wind

Ma gandeam astazi la un lucru banal, putin observat de noi toti.

Indiferent ce limba ai vorbi, banii au acelasi inteles si vorbesc mai bine decat oricine sau orice.

Situatia tragicomica aici, este ca de obicei persoanele ce au bani nu detin fericirea, si sunt fiinte dificil de perceput, complexe in timp ce persoanele ce NU au banii detin fericirea suprema, bucurandu-se de lucrurile mici; sunt fiinte simple, usor de inteles, transparente.

Avem nenumarate visuri, ne dorim lucruri scumpe, si muncim atat de mult pentru a ajunge undeva.

De foarte multe ori drumul inspre succes este pavat cu costuri neprevazute, banii zburand pe fereastra inainte de a fi ajuns la destinatie, la visul neindeplinit.

Trudim din zi si pana in noapte pentru a ne asigura salariul de maine deoarece asa am fost invatati; asa am vazut la parintii nostri… am simtit oboseala din ochi si neputinta din trupul lor istovit, am atins firicelele subtiri de sudoare de la tamplele imbatranite de vreme si am decis ca si noi vom da tot ce avem, ca si ei. Dar totusi diferit, sperand la o munca mai usoara si simpla.

Rulajul banilor este uimitor. Citim pe fetele bancnotelor nume mari ce au insemnat ceva pentru poporul din care provenim, insa nu deosebim si persoana ce a trudit sa ii obtina ca mai apoi sa ii trimita mai departe.

Din jobul de casier practicat in urma cu cativa ani am inteles ca banii sunt instrumente murdare de lucru, ca indiferent cati bani or sa imi treaca prin mana niciodata nu o sa ii posed, si ca niciodata nu or sa ramana la mine sau ca o sa imi confere vreo valoare.

La sfarsitul zilei realizez ca banii primiti nu o sa se masoare niciodata cu munca depusa, si ca toata aceasta harababura, tot acest rulaj al banilor nu o sa ia sfarsit niciodata.

Important este sa stii ca muncesti pentru tine in primul rand, pentru familie si cei dragi, si la final pentru bani. La urma urmei, fericirea sta in lucrurile marunte ce nu pot fi cumparate, in zambete si fericire, in iubire si sinceritate.

In cele 4 scanduri prinse in cuie nu vom lua niciodata nimic cu noi, indiferent cata avere si bani acumulam in decursul vietii.

Asadar dragi prieteni si dragi cititori, haideti sa strangem cu totii in aceasta scurta calatorie denumita viata mai multe suflete oneste, mai multe fapte bune si mai putini bani.

English version

I was thinking today of a trivial thing, a little noticeable to us all.

No matter what language you speak, money has the same meaning and speaks better than anyone or anything.

The tragicomic situation here is that people who have money do not usually have happiness, and they are difficult to perceive, complex while those who DO NOT have money have the ultimate happiness, enjoying little things; are simple, easy to understand, transparent beings.

We have countless dreams, we want expensive things, and we work so hard to get somewhere.

Very often the road to success is paved with unexpected costs, the money fleeing on the window before it arrives at the destination, to the unfulfilled dream.

We work day and night to get our salary tomorrow because that’s how we were taught; that’s how we saw at our parents… the way we felt the fatigue in the eyes and the helplessness of their exhausted body, we touched the thin strands of sweat from the aged forehead and we decided we would give everything we had as well. But still different, hoping for a simpler and easier job.

The money turnover is amazing. We read on the faces of banknotes big names that meant something for the people from where we come from, but we do not distinguish the person who worked hard to get them in order to send them further.

From the cashier job that I was doing a few years ago, I understood that money are dirty work tools, and that no matter how much money would pass through my hand, I would never have them, and that they would never stay with me and that it won’t give me any value.

At the end of the day I realize that the money you receive will never be measured by the work you’ve done, and that all this harassment, all this money turnover will never end.

It is important to know that you work for yourself first and foremost for your family and loved ones, and finally for the money. After all, happiness lies in small things that can not be bought, in smiles and happiness, in love and sincerity.

In the four nailed boards when we die we will never take anything with us, no matter how much wealth and money we accumulate in the course of our lives.

So dear friends and dear readers, let’s all get together in this short journey called life more honest souls, more good deeds and less money.

Sursa fotografiilor de pe blog, de ce si de unde?/Source of blog photos, why and from where?

Un subiect pe care am dorit sa il ating de foarte multa vreme, doar ca m-am luat cu alte postari si nu i-am acordat importanta este acesta: sursa imaginilor/fotografiilor de pe blogul meu personal.

Desi iubesc sa captez imagini, sa fac fotografii nu toate imaginile/fotografiile de pe pagina mea personala sunt originale; de fapt majoritatea fotografiilor sunt preluate de pe site-uri diverse cu exceptia retetelor si a cateva fotografii personale.

Din pacate timpul meu scurt si lipsa studiilor in domeniul foto ma determina sa recurg la aceste metode.

Pana acum am postat fotografii fara sa mentionez sursa, si nu cred ca este un lucru atat de okay. Autorul trebuie recunoscut si sursa de asemenea. Imi cer scuze public ca nu am mentionat acest lucru mai inainte, si promit ca de astazi inainte sa trec sursa si autorul/autoarea.

Imi exercit drepturile de autor doar asupra fotografiilor surprinse de mine, pe care de acum inainte le voi personaliza pentru a face deosebirea de celelalte.

De obicei preiau fotografii/imagini din surse precum:

  1. Google imagini
  2. Unsplash
  3. Pinterest
  4. Surse personale
  5. Alte site-uri.

Va multumesc pentru intelegere!

English version

A topic that I wanted to touch for a very long time, just that I took myself with other posts and did not pay attention to it: the source of the pictures / photos on my personal blog.

Although I love to capture pictures, not all the pictures / photos on my personal page are original; In fact, most photos are taken from various sites except recipes cateogory and some personal photos.

Unfortunately, my short time and lack of studies in the field of photography make me use these methods.

So far I have posted photos without mentioning the source, and I do not think it’s such a good thing. The author must be recognized and the source also. I apologize publicly for not mentioning this before, and I promise that from today I will mention the source and the author.

I only exercise my rights on the photographs I have captured, which I will personalize from now on to distinguish them from the others.

I usually take pictures / images from sources:

  1. Google imagini
  2. Unsplash
  3. Pinterest
  4. Personal resources
  5. Another sites.

Thank you for your kind understanding!

Nu am chef azi…/I’m not in the mood today…

Astazi nici nu mai stiu ce simt. Stiu doar ca am atipit poate putin cam mult, si ma doare capul. Cu ochi apatici privesc catre fereastra incarcata de lumina robusta si deranjanta si trag draperia.

Cafeaua slaba de dimineata, cu prea mult lapte si prea putina cofeina m-au facut sa priveghez asupra situatiei de duminica, sa ma simt pe jumatate adormita, lipsita de energie si vitalitate.

Astazi vreau sa nu-mi pese, vreau doar sa ma relaxez. Vreau sa vad filme si sa ma intind in pat, sa fiu lenesa ca o pisica.

Urmeaza o saptamana plina de activitati din nou, o saptamana de agitatie si fuga continua catre rutina de toate zilele. De aceea astazi, duminica 26, vreau sa iau o pauza de la goana dupa abundenta si sa ma scald in nepasare.

Vreau sa cred ca pentru astazi, cel mai bun medicament este odihna si ca timpul liber recreeaza si innoieste.

English version

Today I do not even know what I feel. I just know that I may have overslept a little, and my head hurts. With apathetic eyes, I stare at the window full of robust and disturbing light and pull off the curtain.

The poor morning coffee, with too much milk and too little caffeine made me watch the Sunday situation, feel half asleep, lacking in energy and vitality.

Today I don’t care, I just want to relax. I want to watch movies and stretch myself in bed, to be lazy like a cat.

There will be a week full of activities again, a week of agitation and the run will continue to the everyday routine. That’s why today, on Sunday, 26, I want to take a break from the chase for abundance and to swim in indifference.

I want to believe that for today, the best medicine is rest and that free time recreates and innovates.

Liebster Award Nomination

Hello my dear ones! So, four days ago (I am truly sory for the delay), I got my first Liebster Award from csprasath . Csprasath is one of my new blog followers who writes amazing posts about travel and his other passions. To tell you the truth, I didn’t expected this and I am really surprised and happy for the nomination. Thank you, csprasath!

Here you can check out mr. csprasath’s blog: https://mytravelcsp.wordpress.com/

I-was-nominated-for-the-liebster-award

The Liebster Award, as I come to know now, is a symbolic award given by one blogger to another to show recognition and discover exceptional blogs.

The rules of the award are listed in this picture:

screenshot_20180821-095652-e1534843238941

11 random facts about me… Okay, and so if the number 1 rule is done, then I must pass to the second one 😀

  1. I am 22 and I am a young blogger. I am writing on this blog because I like writing since childhood. I used to write small stories for school first, then the passion of writing come ahead and I started to write my own notebooks of stories and thoughts and after that came the Kate’s blog.
  2. Even though I had a huge passion on writing and wanted to follow a literature school, the destiny made me follow another path and I started studying Food Industry and became a Laboratory analyst technician and after that I have studied Control and Expertise of Food Products (CEPA), became an auditor on 9000, 14000 and 22000 field. Now I work as an engineer at a new Meat Production Company.        I got to say, I did something different than what I have dreamed of… but still I haven’t given up on writing. The need of expressing my feelings and my thoughts through writing still stays in me and I can’t quit.
  3. I am married for a year and a half and I think I make a good wife (still have a lot to learn), but at least I am happy with the man I love.
  4. I don’t have any children yet, but maybe in a few years I will think of being a mom.
  5. I don’t like spiders and I think I have arachnofobia (I don’t know if it’s spelled right).
  6. I like to cook but I hate washing dishes… is that a crime?!
  7. I like to draw but I don’t do that so often… time is a cruel beast, I have written a post about that. I like to sing too, but the lack of repetition is the mother of useless things so I guess my voice isn’t what it used to be once.
  8. I like to spend time with my family. I think they are the best friends alive and the time spent in their companion is won not lost.
  9. As much for the sports… I haven’t tried anything too extreme. I can’t say that I am afraid (can you be afraid of something you don’t have knowledge?!) but I like basketball, ping pong, jogging and gymnastics.
  10. I like to travel, to mark spots on a map and just go where the wind blows me.
  11. I like to think that I am a nice person and I like to help people in need. I think that everyone needs a hand and that kindness should be priceless.

My questions to my nominee’s are:

aaron-burden-521422-unsplash

  • What made you start the blogging journey? What was the reason you started blogging?
  • What inspires you? What is the pulse that gives life to your posts?
  • Why blogging and not other passion/hobby?
  • How much time are you spending on blogging? Do you think it’s won or lost time?
  • Would you choose facebook over wordpress/blogging?
  • What do you like to do? Describe!
  • Are you into sports?
  • Everyday I see people who travel all over the world and blog about it. Do you travel for the sake of traveling or for the sake of blogging?
  • What is the strongest belief you have?
  • If it were to change something about today’s reality, what would you change?
  • A few words about the blogger, Katherine please!

The 11 questions given to me by csprasath are:

  1. Why did you decide to start blogging?

The reason for blogging is deep inside of me, blogging is more than a hobby and it represents my passion, my desire which is to write.

2. How did you pick your blog name?

The blog name isn’t too fancy, it’s just a reality. It’s Kate’s blog in Kate’s World, which means my blog (Katherine’s, or Catalina’s) in my world. The name stands for the numberless rows that gather in various posts on my page.

3. Describe yourself in 3 words

Well, that is going to be hard. But I will chose: clumsy, well intentioned and lovable.

4. If you could live anywhere in the world? Where would it be?

If I could live anywhere in this big world I think I will chose still Romania. Because Romania is my home, in there are the people I love and care about, my whole entire life is in that country; with it’s advantages and disadvantages.

5. What is your favorite season? Why?

I like to think I am more of a autumn person. Maybe because I was born in september, who knows.

6. Where do you see yourself in two years?

I don’t really know. But right now I have started a journey of a responsible person, a person who works now and became a member of the society in full rights. I guess I will just let the time tell.

7. Given a chance for Time travel , What would you change when you go back in Time ?

I dont know what to say. But the word which will describe all my desires will be GOOD, I would make anything better, don’t repeat the mistakes I made. But then again, If I think again, without those mistakes, where would I be and where would I stand?

8. Who is your real-life hero?

Real life hero… do this persons really exist? I mean, look at us. We are all humans, all live the same, all making mistakes and moving on. Nobody is perfect; I don’t know if that was the part where I should mention my favorite actors or persons I admire cause I don’t. Actors are made to be perfect and flawless, there are programs who do that, and their roles in the movies are cast by chance and past.

9. What type of music do you like? Why?

I like all kinds of music. It all depends on my mood and my state of mind. Most of the time I like pop music, but then again I find myself angry and want to listen rock and Nightwish.

10. What is your thought process of heaven & hell?

I don’t really know. All I know Is that I believe in God.

11. Most challenging about Blogging

My most challenging task about blogging was when I tried to work in content writing. Actually it was more like a volunteer action, three years ago. That was when I figure it out that I am not made for advertorial writing, but for creative writing and I don’t like all the fuss and mess it’s in a content department.  That if I wanted to keep writing I should do it whenever I feel like and want it. Not when I am pushed and have deadlines and crazy colleagues.

In the end of this post, as a conclusion I think that this Liebster Award Nomination is a good way of knowing other bloggers who share the same passions as you do.

Thank you again, csprasath for choosing me and good luck my dear blog colleagues in completing!

Song of the day 16#

Hello my dear ones!

I don’t know why, but today I feel better.

I managed to rest better and, amazingly, I have my own free time, just for me.

So, eventhough I have to clean up and cook, like usual, today I feel energized and good.

I wish you can feel as good as me today, and have the same energy and vibe.

In that thought I will leave here, one of my favorite songs, both accoustic version and official one.

Enjoy!
