instead of making a parting on the side of my head, I made it in the very middle today. my grandma upon seeing that said, “you look good like this as well. it is said that a real Polish woman will look good with a parting in the middle.”
omg, I am a REAL POLISH WOMAN.
this sounds just… so serious and proud. please admire the way my parting looks while I sit in a folk Mazovian outfit and consume a KIEŁBASA (sausage).
Definitely the most informative and accurate summary of the Polish regions.

Just… no comment xD See for yourself.
At the very hot Polish Baltic Sea! Me and my cute yet hot boyfriend, the sea and the seagull supreme :D
On one hand I wanna go and on the other hand I really don’t.
In the winter I don’t wanna leave the shower because it’s so cold outside.
In the summer I don’t wanna leave the shower because it’s so hot outside.
Proudly wearing my Warsaw Uprising Anniversary shirt. It says “volunteer” on the back. Volunteer of the Warsaw Rising Museum, for a couple of years now :)
Orange Warsaw Festival, Day 2. I went because I randomly won a double ticket in a radio contest I wasn’t quite aware of. So I took my friend - the only one that could come ;_; - and saw Lipali, Cypress Hill and The Offspring, the last one being the best one. There was Fatboy Slim, or Fatslim Boy - whatever - after The Offspring, but weren’t interested enough to stay for that.
But, people of Poland, or nearby countries, I must tell you one thing: if you want to get a ticket for a concert that takes place in the National Stadium in Warsaw, be aware of the very shitty acoustics of this place! Get yourself a ticket for the pitch or, if you can afford it, the golden circle right at the stage, because if you buy yourself a ticket for any of the sitting sectors, you’ll be disappointed. I fortunately didn’t spend a penny on that ticket, but if I had… I’d be quite pissed.
The last two photos are what we saw on our way back - we had to walk a couple of miles on foot because we didn’t want to wait almost half an hour for a tram. There’s the colorful pretty many bridges on the river of Vistula (pretty reflections in the water!) and then there’s Palace of Culture and Science, which was rainbow-y again, but just for a couple of minutes. I don’t know on what occasions exactly they illuminate it in rainbow. Usually it’s single-colored. But it’s so pretty this way! And gay.
My phone’s camera at its best. I still gotta go spring hunting… Too bad I need to buy new batteries to do that :c
The fact that, contrary to a popular belief, “iron” is pronounced not like /’aɪron/, but like /’aɪə(r)n/ continues to cause a stir among my students.
"But… On tv they always say /’aɪron mɛn/!"
Yeah. They also say /’polant/ instead of /’pʰoʊlənd/.
Yeah! I don’t keep calm, I need to complain XD
She does really complains a lot.
AND YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO POINT IT OUT sweetie.
She even complains about complaining.
Basically I am saying this: This is the best kind of love.
That’s the best survival strategy. ;>
That means I have the power over the poor Slovakian exchange student’s mind, mwhahaha! He’ll believe everything I tell him! Like, if he turns out to be really awful, I’ll just be like “Oh I have absolutely no idea why people say it’s a dangerous district, maybe they say it because you get so awe-inspired by its beauty at night you’re close to having a heart attack. Yeah, you should totally go for a walk there around midnight, and carry no weapons, because you’ll scare off the fairies, this part of the city is really MAGICAL! Oh, and don’t forget to take a huge sign that says LEGIA SUCKS, the locals will like it.”
This is so cool.
