My Romanian Diary Day 30: I skipped day 29, happy St. Andrew Day everyone and it is better to live in Cuba than in Romania

Dear diary,

Last night my worst nightmare came to life. No, I didn’t die in an earthquake, I mean the second worst nightmare. My wireless connection failed and all my neighbors have passwords. It was horrible, things were happening, like NASA found ice on Mercury, I could see headlines on my Facebook app but my 100 Mbs were restricting me from reading the whole thing. If the Apocalypse takes place, I am sure it will consist in disconnecting the planet from the internet.


I did it. I am a NaNoWriMo winner. I didn’t complete my novel though. I estimate I have at least 10.000 words more to write. This accomplishment means so much to me, on so many levels. I plan to publish the book next year, so I will have plenty of time to tell you more details about it.


I wrote about the traditions Romanians have for St. Andrew’s Day. The more I learn about our traditions, the more I think we are a very weird people. I will tell you one day about the first bath given to a newborn. It looks more like a stew, than like a bath, I swear to god.

Speaking of newborns, Switzerland is the best place to be born in the world in 2013. Romania is on position 56. Iran is on position 58. Apparently, it is better to be born in Cuba than in Romania. Cuba is on position 40. I really need to get out of here.

I will see you tomorrow, so help me wireless.

    I absolutely hate, hate, hate when the internet goes down. I can’t imagine how horrible it was for you. I hope you are okay? 🙂 Congrats on your novel. I wish I had the kind of dedication it takes to finish NaNo. I’ve been to Switzerland. I wouldn’t mind living there… Everyone had such great skin. It was like they were born with moisturizer in their little hands…

      Yeah, I will survive but I need therapy. Last night we had few tiny little earthquakes and this is my MAJOR fear. No internet one day and then earthquakes the next day, these are Apocalypse symptoms to me:))) I failed NaNo last year but I made it now. It was really hard. I am lately forcing myself into writing daily, this is one of the reasons why I keep this diary on my blog. I am very lazy so I am trying to discipline myself. Also, I have no one to practice English with in Romania. So except for my chats with my abroad friends I have nothing else.That is why I read and I write in English as much as possible. English language is one of my most valuable assets. Switzerland is on my list also. I have heard I can study for free there since Romania is in EU. I should do more digging regarding this matter. It would be a good reason to live there for a year or two:)))

        Wow. Living in Switzerland would be amazing. Yay you. So sorry to hear about the earthquakes – that sounds so scary. Glad you are okay. I am such a lazy writer. I think I am doing much better in the last 2 months. Hopefully, your good habits will rub off on me. 🙂
