Bundle up, it`s cold outside!/Camden Town

 Dear Diary,

It`s getting soooo cold outside that winter is waiting impatiently on the corner to take its turn...
Well, the weather has never stopped me and will never stop me from getting out of my house and having fun!
Cold necessities:
1. A cup of deliciously hot gingerbread latte
2. warm clothes, hat,gloves,etc
3. best friend to be kook with; laughter can keep you warm

The other day, me and my partner in crime-Balbina- hit Camden Town, It`s been ages since my last visit there and the Christmas Camden was more than fabulous.

Keep calm and bundle up!
Till next post,
Litsiana K.

Autumn against Xmas:part 1/Hyde Park

 Dear Diary,

Good fights over evil.
White over black, and
London over its appearance!

London is double-faced.
The park-faced London and the cement-faced London.
Parks follow the natural trend! 
The cement follows the consumption trend!

Parks cannot go against nature or against the season. They still look amazing, dressed in their deciduous leaves. The colours, the vibes you get by simply looking at them or by walking along them cannot be described in words.That`s why they say an image can speak a thousand words. The pics that follow are trying to reveal some of the magic found in the ``natural habitat`` of London.
On the other side, the city is dressed in its festive attire. Xmas trees, lights, ornaments have already welcomed the Xmas spirit.

I won`t say that I don`t like it, but once in a while I want to escape from it before being swallowed by the Xmas bombard or becoming so fed up of Xmas in that Xmas is yet too far!

Too complicating? 

Well, let`s take the most of fall before it says bb for the next 300, or so, days.
This battle between autumn and Xmas will continue to the upcoming posts tho...
Till then,
Kiss kiss
Hug hug,

Keep calm and graduate!

Dear Diary,

You know my big issue with time... I can`t get it why it flies away that fast... Seriously, why???
One week ago, on 10th November, it was my graduation ceremony!
I was honoured to receive my MA Certificate, graduating in the field of English and in particular  from TESOL with Merit!

The way of life most people adopt is like, first getting their Bachelor and straight away starting their Master`s, In my case, I graduated from Theology in 2009, continued my studies in Teaching English and then starting working as a Teacher of English. It took me a long time to push myself to this big leap...It was always my dream to put on this gown but it is not that easy to be a postgraduate student!

Well, the big decision was taken and Voila! I decided to be a student at the University of Westminster, meeting incredible Teachers who shared their knowledge and experience. Fortunately, we, as students, had the chance to do the same!

The graduation ceremony took place in Waterloo/Southbank and it was more than fabulous! It was an once in a life-time experience that can not be depicted with words!
Classmates/colleagues reunited once again, spreading smiles and happiness! Congrats to all of us and what if this door has closed? Another might have already opened or will open soon....   

Hope the pictures can reveal part of the magic that occurred that day...

 I did it!
Tip: Don`t forget that education achieved in a classroom or by my any other means, is a weapon that can be used to change the world!
