Learn juggling

The other night, a friend took me to a multicultural event, where you could try out some juggler's equipment. I decided to learn how to spin a plate on a stick and it was an amazing experience. At first, I needed help, then I pretty quickly figured out how to do it and I was bursting with pride and happiness. I can't wait to do it, again. :) So whatever you want to try out, go for it! You can do it and you'll be so happy afterwards!

Have you ever tried juggling? What was the last thing that made you feel ecstatic with happiness? Let me know in the Comments below!


Take part in an art project

One of the museum newsletters I'm subscribed to, contained a call for artists. (See, it's so worth being subscribed to museum newsletters!) They were looking for people for a performance, who are trained in dance, meditation or martial arts, or who are simply naturally careful with their movements. I fell into this latter group. After a try-out, where we had to manipulate and interact with an object, I was selected among 6 other people. Then we had a month-long training period and now the performance is 'live' until the beginning of September. During the performance we compose and then take apart an installation. It's one of the most special of my experiences. So if there's anything you really want to experience, but might be out of your comfort zone or your league, go for it!

Buy a mobile phone

In my home country, if you don't have a house or flat and you don't pay your own bills, you can't buy a mobile phone from any of the telecom companies. So it didn't matter that I had a good job, as I lived in a rented apartment, I couldn't have my own phone, it had to be obtained by my parents. I moved to another country and decided to buy an independent phone, then go to the telecom company with the best subscription plan and get it all set up. I'm really proud that after long years I finally have my own phone and subscription plan paid with my own earnings. Somehow it made me feel independent.

Do you own anything, that gives you a sense of independence? What acquisition of yours are you the most proud of? Let me know in the Comments below!


Try turkish delight

I love trying national or local specialties. This time my Greek friend brought back a box of Turkish delights from her visit home. It was amazingly delicious and though it was just a bite, I suspect, it works like the English pudding: it's so rich, that a bite is more, than enough. In colour it was brown and contained bits of walnut. :) I can only urge you to try it!
