How to RELAX???

A question in the topic can be treated quite personally,  but there are a few universal ways to calm Your mind. But firstly, I have to to apologize for my rude behaviour- I haven't introduced myself. Here are some obvious facts- I'm a girl living in Cracow, Poland, what I'm proud of. I love photography and travelling. In the future I want to combine earning a living with these two passions. Impossible? Of course not;) Nothing is impossible for those who believe. Another obvious fact- I come from a non-english speaking country. Although I learn this beautiful language for over 10 years, I still have to be very careful with both grammar and vocab (sorry for my countless mistakes;) ).
...this is me;)

Now I get to the point. Imagine that You woke up today at 5.30 a.m. in order to avoid traffic jams, but on Your way to the work/school You notice an accident on a road. You get stuck and find out that You have 20 minutes left o get to the work/school... You are late of course and the boss/teacher is mad at You.- A perfect beginning of a day, right? And the worst thing is that's just one of the typical days (maybe except for the accident). Even somebody with very strong nerves won't be able to survive it without relaxation.
How do I relax? I get away from it all for a while. The best way of course (for me personally) is to go somewhere far, far away like e.g. to the ountryside. Are You surprised? I'd be happy if You were, because that would mean You've read my post, where I said:
'I fancy something that is quite different- big city life.
It's not just about the cafés and shopping malls.
It's the philosphy of life- maybe to hectic, but I'm still in love with it. 
I can't imagine myself living somewhere else like e.g. in a village. 
Am I a city slicker? So what? ;)'
I can say now that I've changed my mind a bit (just a little bit;)). I think that everybody has to go somewhere else once in a while- that's a human nature- we used to live a nomadic life.

But what if You can't go anywhere? Find a second best of what You miss the most. You want to be a child again? Eat Your favourite dish from that period. You miss Your trip to China? 
Look at the pictures You've made. etc. 
Ideas  above are quite passive, aren't they? Good news for the lovers of movement- running, fitness and yoga- they can make You forget about Your problems for a moment. The only thing You'll think about will be: 'My legs are buuuurning';)
And the most important thing- REMEMBER- under no circumsances should You eat sweets when You're under pressure. They'll only make it worse. The scientists found out that a feeling after eating a large amount of chocolate is similar to hangover. 
Do You really want to experience it?;)

I hope You've read the whole post and that You guys liked it:*
Leave a comment and wait for the next post. A spoiler to it is, that it will contain a few interesting -don't worry- not those 'break-up'-facts about celebrities. I can't wait! 
How about You?

Take it easy!

I know it's a middle of the week and I must admit that I'm quite depressed too- I'm having a test on maths tomorrow and I'm still completely unprepared. As if it couldn't get any worse, I've lost all of my stuff saved on the hard disc... Well, now my motto will be: 'don't trust the technology'. I'm joking of course, but it's still so annoying...
Fortunately, I'm not very temperamental, so I can always tell myself: 'Relax, take it easy' or ...

...and if it doesn't work, my plan B is this song:

Mika 'Relax, Take It Easy'

'Took a ride to the end of the line
Where no one ever goes
Ended up on a broken train with nobody I know
But the pain and the longing's the same
When you're dying
Now I’m lost and I’m screaming for help alone
Relax, take it easy
For there is nothing that we can do
Relax, take it easy
Blame it on me or blame it on you

It’s as if I’m scared
It’s as if I’m terrified
It’s as if I scared
It’s as if I’m playing with fire
It’s as if I’m terrified
Are you scared?
Are we playing with fire?
There is an answer to the darkest times
It’s clear we don’t understand it but the last thing on my mind
Is to leave you
I believe that we’re in this together
Don’t scream, there are so many roads left

Relax, take it easy
For there is nothing that we can do
Relax, take it easy
Blame it on me or blame it on you
It’s as if I’m scared
It’s as if I’m terrified
It’s as if I scared
It’s as if I’m playing with fire
It’s as if I’m terrified
Are you scared?
Are we playing with fire?


...and enjoy the life!
In my next post I'll give You more hints;))

Forever young

 A couple of weeks ago I decided to go to an exhibtion called: 'Forever Young! Poland and it's art around 1900' which sounded quite promisig, especially for a lazy Saturday afternoon. In fact, I'm not the biggest fan of  museums, but...well- art and thinking makes us different from the animals, right?;) Sometimes is good to move your butt from the couch and enjoy fine arts. Well, relatively;>
To be honest, I have to say that this time I was  REALLY contented. The only thing that I didn't like there was... creaking floor- that's a beauty of an old building. To feel its atmosphere, visit the museum till 
29 September 2013 or just look at its architecture during Your way back from the main Market Square.

Check out the description of the exhibition:
'What makes it still attractive, interesting and liked despite the passage of time? Simply - eternally young? This question is asked by an exhibition presenting the best of around-1900 Polish Art in the renovated interiors of the Szołayski Tenement House - a Branch of the National Museum in Kraków, in the capital city of art at the turn of the 19th to the 20th century.'

The Szołaysky House
Plac Szczepański 9

Thanks for paying attention;) It would be also nice to see a few likes and tweets. Oh no, adverisement again. SORRY;3 But remember about our action 10 tweets/likes=...

A cover matters

It can create a brand new character of a song and make a great impression. Now You can be sure that it's not about books;) . YouTube enables all of the unknown artists to show off. 
Isn't it wonderful?
Unfortunately it's not guaranteed that anybody will discover and appreciate your little piece of art- your footprint in the sand.
I've been always amazed by those who have conquered YouTube. They made it!
A question is simple- how?

1.Mike Tompkins (pictures 3,4)
He : good looking talented
C.has electronics in his disposal very inventive
All of the answers are correct.
Why C. ? He produces all his own sounds using his voice and mouth- quite impressive, isn't it?
My favourite song performed by him is a mashup of 'All Night Long' and 'Unbroken'.

2.Cimorelli (pictures 5,6)
It's a singing group made of six crazy sisters.
They started in 2007 when they inserted their first covers into YouTube.
In 2009 they became clients of Sugababes' manager and since then their career has gained momentum.
Listen to 'Perfect' and... believe it or not- it's perfect;)

3.Christina Grimmie (pictures 1,2)
Meet a talented 19-year-old singer and songwriter.
She is best known for the cover of Nelly's song 'Just a dream' (about 70 million views!).
Since 2010 her manager is Selena Gomez's stepfather.
This year she released her new album- 'TBA' and won one of the Radio Disney Music Awards.
She has also collaborated with Mike Tompkins on e.g. a mix of 'Fall Out Boy' and 'Girl on fire'. Must see!

Mike, Christina and Cimorelli are just a few artists who became popular thanks to YouTube.
They set an example of the way how everybody (with a pinch of talent and invention)
can start their career in showbiz- at least start;)

I hope You've liked this post after, well.... kind of big break.
WE hope that You'll wait patiently for the next one. Maybe less than a month but a little break can happen;)
It's really worth waiting- we're planing to add some new sections- next to 'Places 2 visit', 'Recommendations', 'Watch&read' ...
Of course, it would be outrageous if You don't leave a comment;*
