I really love my city. I don't know if that's because I'm so sentimental, but there is definitely something about this place cause most of my friends feel the same way. Every time I come home I need to get out, take a long walk and enjoy the view. Living in the center of the city may seem tiring with all the crowds and traffic...not in Szczecin. Even though it's a pretty big and busy city, it has very wide streets and spacious areas so it's never crowded.
Few weeks ago a took a walk along the river, it was a very foggy day and it was slowly getting dark, take a look : 

This is a place that Kasia Nosowka describes in one of her songs : "Odra pod dźwigozaurów rząd". The water you see it's Odra and these three strange creatures hidden in the fog are "dźwigozaury". ;)

2016 came out of nowhere, the sun is shining and it's about time I pull myself together. Learn more, read much more, do sports, do everything more accurately and don't do everything at once...the list of stuff to do this year seems endless and all I want to do is sit by the window, look at the sun and eat chocolate. Not a very promising beginning, but somehow, sooner or later, everything always works out.

Anyway, beginning of the year means that The Oscars are coming!  I have no idea if new Star Wars movie will be nominated in any category, but it certainly should, but I will probably write about it some other time.

The other movie I've seen lately is "Big short". I thought that the best movie about Wall Street has already been made, but "The wolf of Wall Street" now has a competition. I was a bit concerned that it was going to be a silly film filled with hollywood stars (trailer was really dull), but I had a great time, my friends loved it as well. I'm a big fan of Christian Bale (who isn't?), and to me this is one of his best roles. If you find time to go to the cinema, go and see it!

Christmas is coming, are you all ready? Me neither.

Every year I promise myself to come up with ideas for presents around October, so that I can buy them all in November and have a lot of time in December to focus on baking cookies and singing carols. Of course it never works and now the only thing I can do is wake up early in the morning and go shopping before everyone does, so that I won't have to spend few hours standing in the queue.  

Another thing I promise myself is to buy something original. Every year I buy books and CDs and even though there's nothing wrong with them (the more books the better!) it would be nice to find something more personal, that says "I'm your daughter/girlfriend/granddaughter and I know you so well I bought you something no one else would ever buy and I know you'll love it". 

Anyway, the most important thing is that you get to spend time with the people you love, so every year I console myself that even though nothing went the way I planned, that's not really what Christmas is about.  
Do you know that next week new Star Wars movie is coming up?

I know it perfectly well as my boyfriend reminds me of it every single day. He's so excited there's nothing else he can talk about right now. I really like it when people have their passions, hobbies, favourite movies...but this is clearly an obsession.

Anyway, I've seen only three Star Wars episodes, but I'm looking forward to the next one as I want to see Harrison Ford on a big screen again.

If you're tired of writing your master thesis, take a break and watch Harrison Ford talk about the movie (what I really want you to see is his answer to the last question -around 3:35, unless you've heard about it already).

"25" album is out!
After listening to "Hello" I was really sceptical, I've listened to the whole album only once to it's hard to make up my mind so soon, but one thing I know for sure - other songs are much better then the single promoting it. If you want to check it out, well, it's possible to find it somewhere on the Internet, but I don't encourage you to download it illegally. On the other hand the album is so expensive I can afford it only if I get it as a present for Christmas, so I had to look it up on the Internet even though I prefer to buy CDs. My favourite songs so far (yes, I've heard it once and I already have my favourites) are "Sweetest devotion", "Send my love" and "I miss you". Enjoy!

Did I miss something, or did Florence and the machine relase a new album? Yes, they did! It's called "how big, how blue, how beautiful" and it was released in may. Good thing I finally realised that.

Few days ago I was in our cafeteria, sipping coffee and pretending to be learning, when I heard "Delilah" and I loved it! I've heard some of her new songs over the past few months but I didn't really pay attention to it, shame on me! I spent last two evenings catching up on her work and I think it's great. She's so full of energy and yet so shy when she's being interviewed. Her voice is so powerful it's hard to believe it's coming from such a slim woman. If you haven't heard it already in Trójka, enjoy :

Did you get to see the new Bond movie?
There are so many diffrent opinions about this film among my friends, I have trouble telling you if it's worth seeing or not. To me it's great. Nothing compares to "Skyfall", which I adore, but still, it's one of the best Bond movies I've seen. (Not that I'm a specialist, I haven't seen all of them)
I don't want to talk about the ending as I don't want you to know exactly what happens, maybe you plan to see it next weekend, but I just want to say that I like it, the whole idea of "closure" ;)
