My dearest hearts,
I wanted to share with you today one piece of news from March - I know I am a bit late, but better late than never! :) plus if you follow me on my Facebook page you already know the news by now. In March I was invited by the Romanian - Moldavian Magazine created/edited/printed in Warsaw, to give an interview about my blog. I knew about the magazine since last year, when they created the first printed edition, but I thought it through and said I would be horrible in writing texts/articles in my own language. I always found it easier to write in English and I think I sound more funny... hence I dropped the idea and life went on... until Olga bumped into me on Facebook and asked me if I would consider giving an interview for the "Mamaliga de Varsovia" 2nd edition. I dunno about you, but I always get an uplifting feeling when someone new discovers my blog and thinks highly of it.
the interview and also submitting 2 articles in my own language. It's tough switching from the language you write and speak and think 24/7 (English) to your very own (Romanian) that you use when speaking to your parents... it's odd! And for sure it takes longer to write your articles. Not to mention I had a constant need to put in a word or phrase in English as I thought it would have been more fitting - that's what being an expat is all about... having an expat blog and writing in English only creates a pattern of writing into your brain as well, and it takes a while to get out of it ;)
