Some time has passed since I did one of those news updates, and some things have happened during this time. To cut a long story short and to prevent you from being aware of my life, here come brand new Top Several Things ho help me express myself more clearly. Continue reading
Bonsoir, mes cheres amis et chères amies,
Here’s the big-and-exciting-news-which-might-seem-not-so-big-and-exciting-if-you’re-living-in-other-conditions: I am (possibly though, but still, e x t r e m e l y possibly) going to France’s very own Normandie this August! Amazing, isn’t it? Continue reading
Ahoj (every time this rather popular exclamation is mentioned, the image of a 30s pin-up lady saying ‘Hello, sailor!’ uncontrollably occurs in my head)
There’s snow in Liberec! Can you believe it? I certainly can’t. On one of our first conversation lessons, Linda told us that last year there was only one teeny-weeny snowfall, and I have honestly believed these people here aren’t sure what snow looks like since. In the middle of December, there were a few times when the mixture of snowflakes and raindrops fell down from the sky, an I thought that was it. How surprised I was to return here on the 11th of January and find out some snow piles! (even though they weren’t really much to look at) Continue reading
Some people think that, in the first place, science must serve consumers’ needs, giving the humanity more and more things to comfort our lives. Others, however, believe that, in the first place, modern scientific achievements have to help us save the world around us. Continue reading
and, yes, I’m finally going back to the CR.
Most of our extracurricular (and curricular as well sometimes) English classes were devoted to performing Olympiad-like tasks and training for one of the most crucial event of our lives. That’s my writing part done last autumn.
We had to translate ‘The Duty of the Strong’ and write “an essay giving your arguments, commenting on the ideas expressed in the poem”.
Time given: 1,5 hour.
Word limit for the essay: 250-300 words. Continue reading
Another short story from my personal short stories archive for you, ladies and gentlemen.
Was written about two years ago, on a tiring spring evening, as my English homework. One of those several times we were asked to write a story, not an essay.
We had to write a story on several conditions:
- the theme is “Travelling in the USA”
- should contain a joke and a moral
- 400-450 words long
So, Continue reading
Do you remember Nica the rainbow? She’s my good friend and kindly afforded me to write a story about her wonderful and exciting adventures when I needed a story for a book our Russian-speaking fieldmousy community prepares to present the Mighty Noel himself (and, hopefully, some other lads who get involved in his shows etc) with it later.

looks like good ol’ Aurora finally decided to visit her snowdusty fridge
Решено: новый год – новая жизнь. Папа бросает курить, мама садится на диету, брат-пятиклассник прекращает занимать телефонную линию двадцать восемь часов в сутки, а младшая сестрёнка ест меньше сладостей и регулярно чистит зубки. А я? Что из своей ежедневной жизни современный подросток может несомненно убрать? «Конечно же, Интернет» – хором ответят родители. «Может, лучше нудные нотации?» – закатят глаза мои ровесники. Решив прислушаться сначала к мнению старших, а потом попробовать внедрять в свою жизнь инновации, предлагаемые более юными, я под бой курантов бодро даю себе обещание слезть с информационной иглы, ограничив собственный доступ к Всемирной Паутине.
