"I want to break your heart and give you mine"

Cluj is Cluj
Freaky snowman is freaky. Kept expecting him to start a dance with Tim Burton in the middle of the square.

The last week has been a whirlwind. Running between family dinners and between Bucharest and Cluj, killing time with wine bottles all by myself or glasses filled with beer around tables with friends. I think I'm getting old because all I really want to do for New Year's Eve is sleep until the cows come home. Will probably end up next to a glass of vodka and a plate of cookies.

And because this whole "What I've learned in 2010" meme has been going around the interwebz, here are the two things I've aquired these 365 days: Don't mix drinks and a truckload of medical stuff I will forget come January 1st.

Keep on enjoying the hollidays, darlings.

Cluj, darling city, thank you for a couple of really great days. I'll always have those few extra pounds to remind me of you.

Cluj is Cluj Cluj is Cluj
9 hours train ride. Once the book got too long and the iPhone games got too boring, we resorted to acting like 5-year-olds.

Cluj is Cluj
It was nice and snowy over there. It was also so freezing that even Mr Freeze would buy an electric blanket. But pretty, nontheless.

Thank god for kiddy mittens and grandma style socks.

Reindeers and sheep. And I do adore sheep ♥

Cluj is Cluj
This is what happens when the boy sends me to buy snacks for the train ride home. I go buy giant marshmallow eyes and then run around the train whispering "The Eye of Sauron is going to get youuuuuu". Hey, I didn't watch all the Lord of the Rings extended editions for nothing :)

Florina's birthday party rounded up the holiday party count. Yet hers was the best bash we've had in this house all year. There was drinking, there were muffins, there was dancing to Ke$ha (who we hate to love) and then there was chilling to Red Hot Chili Peppers (who we just love).

All in all, one great party. Love you babe :)

Party Like You're Twenty
Pre-Party photoshoot, always a must.

Failed to make a snowman. Made a snowboob (The Boy's take on our sculpture) or a snow flowerpot (my take on the sculpture).

Decided to give up freezing and watch the Doctor Who Christmas Special which had Dumbledore as a narrator so WIN!!

Always keep in mind: Bowties are cool.

ooo and we have a few things in common-which i thought was rather cool.
I'm also a medical student but England
and i used to go to Slatina, Romania often esp during my gap year working in an orphanage and going into town working in the children's homes.
One of the best years of my life to be honest.

How are you finding medicine?

I sometimes miss the snow. It's something romantic regarding the snow and I don't know what it is, for the moment. But I hope I'll find it some day or another.
