    Apr 6, '05 8:22 AM EST

    The most beautiful buildings in timisoara, the town I live in, come from 2 periods: either the 17-18th century (built by the austrians), or the first half of the 20th century. The constructions from the first period, that are not around the town center are mostly in ruin. Most people that live in... View full entry

    I've been thinking lately (although I promised myself to stop doing it), it sucks to be born in such a country as Ro.Til few years ago I had no problem with it. Of course, everytime I met foreign people they asked a lot of questions, but in the end we got along, it didn't matter where we were... View full entry

I spent the last three days in a nice resort, weather was fine, everything ok.Only on my last day (actually last ride) I had a traumatic experience. The slope was frozen (it felt more like ice then snow, you couldn't break it even... View full entry

    this semester we have to make mixed facilities in an arboretum. the park was founded around 1900 and had some colaborations with the arnold arboretum (biggest in the world). it used to have a mix of local species with exotic ones.

    Mar 11, '05 5:01 AM EST

    the first year of arch passed without any scars. After the second school year i coloured my hair red. After the third year i pierced my tongue and belly. At home. By a teenager. Now i'm thinking about a tattoe. Something has to happen. But will this feeling ever stop? What will i do in a few... View full entry

    You might have heard about the 'People's House' built by former dictator Ceausescu. I'll give you a short description. The Guinness Book of Records lists it as the worlds second largest building (330,000 square meters), after the Pentagon. In total cubic content (2.550 million cubic meters) it... View full entry

    i don't know how it is in your countries, but here each tv channel has it's own 'architecture' show. architecture isn't quite the right word but, hey, that's how they call themselfs. so for example when i am at home my father asks me to watch with him this shows, which i have to do. the worst...

    Feb 9, '05 3:17 AM EST

    this was inspired by savanna's post 'titles and aliances'. i usually avoid thinking in those terms, about career path and future, as i get headaches and depression's. lately i turned down 3 job-offers. and they looked pretty ok, apparently, as most of my collegues would take them in a second. one...
