Reminder-Shift in Perspective 6/365


EN: A little over 4 years ago, when I came to my interview for university, I saw the Big Ben and the London Eye first, obviously. Living in London now doesn’t take me around that area much. I probably avoid it, due to the high volume of tourists regardless of the hour.

Today I went there on purpose, after a long time. Something made me think of that first dreamy , cliche visit to London. I wanted to remember how I pictured then the future I was about to build in England.

Whilst then I was more preoccupied by setting the camera on timer, to take a photo of myself, now that thought didn’t even cross my mind. I actually became the subject of curiosity to some tourists, who were wondering what I doing. There was a surprisingly pleasant silence on the bridge. The future I wished for then was different than how it happened. I still don’t know the answers for many questions I had then, but my mind is clear. One thing I couldn’t imagine at the time. Just like my skin became stronger from the wind and rain, so has my determination for hustle.

RO: Cu putin mai mult de 4 ani in urma, cand am venit pentru interviul la facultate, mai intai am vazut Big Ben-ul si London Eye, evident. Locuind la Londra acum nu ma duce prin acea zona des. Probabil o evit din cauza volumului mare de turisti la orice ora.

Astazi am mers acolo intentionat, dupa mult timp. Ceva m-a facut sa imi amintesc de acea vizita visatoare si cliseica la Londra. Vroiam sa imi amintesc cum am vizualizat atunci viitorul pe care aveam sa il incep in Anglia.

In timp ce atunci eram mai preocupata sa setez camera pe cronometru, ca sa imi fac o poza, acum acel gand nici nu mi-a trecut prin minte. Am devenit chiar subiectul curiozitatii unor turisti, care se intrebau ce fac. Era o tacere surprinzator de placuta pe pod. Viitorul pe care mi l-am dorit atunci a fost diferit fata de cum s-a intamplat. Inca nu stiu raspunsul multor intrebari de atunci, dar gandirea imi este limpede. Un singur lucru nu mi-am imaginat atunci. La fel cum pielea mi s-a intarit de la vant si ploaie, la fel si determinarea si pofta de munca.
