I’m addicted to Tumblr / Sunt dependenta de Tumblr !

ENGLISH

Hello ! My name is Ada and I am a Tumblr addict !

Yup, you heard it right , I keep refreshing my dashboard and reblogging posts LIKE A BOSSobsessively every 2 seconds cause I’ve mastered the art of obsessing and Tumblr is helping me get even better at it !

Ok, maybe I don’t refresh it every 2 seconds but it’s certainly the most obsessed I’ve been with any of these social networking sites. I have accounts almost everywhere , I have a Facebook , a Twitter, a Myspace, a YouTube, a LiveJournal and this WordPress blog + a few others I’m forgetting but I was never so passionate about any of them except maybe LiveJournal but that’s kind of like a blog and it’s where all the cool tv show related communities are. I’ve never been obsessed with Facebook and I stopped playing Farmville last autumn cause it was too hard taking care of the massive farm, I Tweet but not regularly, I’ve forgotten my Myspace username and password, my HI5 account died along with my highschool years and everyone uses YouTube to some extent.

Now, Tumblr………..Tumblr is almost perfect ! It’s mostly pictures ,mostly fun or fascinating , there are tons of memes, .gifs and beautiful images, reblogging stuff is fun ,having stuff you post reblogged is made of pure and utter WIN ,you get to have fun and it looks pretty !

Plus, Tumblr is now my safe haven where I can share my fascination with WWII/Nazi Regime history as much as I like without being judged because there are other history nerds there who like the same thing and understand my fascination without thinking “omg she’s a nazi” (which is upsetting ,sad and boring cause I JUST AM NOT ).

ROMANIAN

Salut ! Numele meu e Ada si sunt dependenta de Tumblr !

Da, a-ti auzit bine, dau refresh la dashboard in prostie , o data la 2 secunde , abuzez butonul de reblog si-mi place la nebunie ! Eu in general sunt experta in obsesii deci e de bine , Tumblr a fost facut pentru mine si eu pt el !

Bine,poate nu dau refresh/reblog o data la 2 secunde dar oricum intru foarte des, verific si de pe telefon , ma distreaza cand sunt plictisita si e singurul site de networking/socializare care a reusit sa ma atraga in asemenea masura . Am conturi cam peste tot , pe Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, YouTube, Livejournal si altele pe care nu le mentionez ca nu le-am folosit deloc , dar dintre toate Tumblr a fost singurul care chiar a reusit sa ma “seduca” (LJ ar fi celalalt dar e ca un blog, nu se pune). Pe Twitter intru o data pe zi ,Facebook-ul e interesant dar plictisitor si nu m-am mai jucat Farmville din Septembrie anul trecut, la Myspace mi-am uitat username-ul si parola de cand n-am mai intrat, Hi5-ul a murit o data cu anii de liceu ca era prea de manelisti, etc ,insa Tumblr-ul e TARE .

Imi place Tumblr mai ales pt ca e un fel de combinatie intre Twitter si blogging normal , imi place ca e mai mult cu poze ,imi place ca e cu multe .gif-uri si meme’s si alte chestii amuzante dar si poze si mesaje serioase si interesante si imi place ca poti sa gasesti orice. Imi mai place ca poti gasi oameni interesati de aceleasi chestii si sa te conectezi cu ei (prin follow) formand astfel o mica sau mare comunitate unde fiecare contribuie cu ce are , e distractiv.

Alta chestie buna e ca Tumblr pt mine a devenit locul unde pot sa-mi satisfac nevoia de a impartasii din fascinatia mea pt al Doilea Razboi Mondial si Germania Nazista/Interbelica si asta fara sa ma gandesc cu groaza ca aoleo ma face cineva nazista cand nu sunt pentru ca imi gaseste postarile cine e interesat si cauta.

Blogging in two languages/ Blog bilingv

From now on I’ve decided to try posting in 2 languages, English and my native Romanian ,in case there are any Romanians who don’t speak English or look for blogs in English but would be interested in reading what I write on this humble and poorly updated blog ! So, every post will have an English version followed by the Romanian version. Enjoy !

De acum inainte am decis sa incerc sa postez in 2 limbi, engleza si romana . Am luat aceasta decizie pentru a face blogul accesibil si vorbitorilor de limba romana ce nu inteleg engleza sau nu doresc sa citeasca bloguri in engleza si pe care i-ar interesa ce scriu eu aici , pe umilul si greu updatatul meu blog  . Deci, fiecare post o sa aiba versiunea in engleza si apoi versiunea in romana.

Draga ClickNet de la Romtelecom ,

Te urasc nespus ! De o luna mergi si nu prea ! Dar, ce zic eu o luna cand de fapt nu ai mers ca-n “brosura” niciodata !

Sa incepem cu inceputul ca asa e frumos ,nu? Se facea ca eu, Adelina, aveam nevoie de internet iar la mine pe ulita ,in capitala Romaniei ,Bucuresti, zona destul de centrala chiar, nu existau prea multe variante ….adica exista unica varianta : Romtelecom. Asta se intampla acum multi ani, probabil prin 2003. M-am dus eu cu mamica mea (ca deh, eram prin clasa a 10a) la magazin si am facut contract, am primit modemul ,totul bine si frumos. O perioada a fost bine dar de vreo cativa ani da rateuri de parca s-ar distra pe seama mea.

Fast-forward cativa ani pana prin anul de gratie 2008. Eh, de prin 2008 ,cand au inceput parca sa scoata si noi viteze la inaintare, internetul meu sucks ! Se intrerupe asa cand ii vine lui, uneori nu-si mai revine iar alteori pur si simplu cade o data la cateva minute. Am dat telefoane (nu obsesiv ca ma enervez) ,am facut reclamatii ,am schimbat modemul dar problema nu se rezolva.

Si asa am ajuns in prezent, anul 2011 . Internetul meu a avut o perioada cat de cat bunicica, s-a intrerupt ceva mai putin de cand am schimbat modemul(acu’ vreun an si ceva parca) ,mai rarut ca-i mai bunut. De la un timp insa a luat-o razna yet again asa ca in ultima luna ,de ex, am avut perioade de cateva zile o data cand mergea 3 minute si se intrerupea ,mai mergea inca 5 minute si iar se interupea sau, varianta extrema, mergea 30 de secunde si murea in chinuri vreo 3 ore. Saptamana trecuta a fost extrema, a stat mai mult mort decat viu si nu si-a revenit complet .

Eh, dar ce sa fac ? Sa dau telefon? Data trecuta am dat telefon si mi-a zis operatorul sa resetez modemul (chestia aia de te duci la o adresa in browser si configurezi modemul) . Asta a rezolvat temporar problema in sensul ca a inceput sa mearga (nu mergea deloc) dar tot cu intreruperi. Asa ca acum nu am mai dat telefon pentru ca ori imi da indicatii d-astea care nu ma ajuta cu mai nimic ori trimit pe cineva prin zona sa se zgaiasca la cutia de pe stalp sau de unde naiba o fi ,o zgaltaie putin si problema ramane, as always iar eu stau prost cu nervii asa ca nu vreau sa-mi sacrific ultimul neuron cu Romtelecom.

Solutia ? Pai in Romania solutia e sa incerci altceva . Acum ,de anul trecut, au intrat in zona si cei de la RDS, cu fibra optica (parca) deci am varianta asta si planuiesc sa o incerc dupa ce expira contractul cu Romtelecom. Nu-mi fac mari sperante nici cu profitorii de la RDS si monopolul lor dar trebuie sa renunt la Romtelecom ca am si eu o limita, nu pot sa-i las sa-si bata joc de mine la nesfarsit.

Ah, apropo , am luat anul trecut, in prostia-mi infinita (imi merit soarta!) si wireless pentru laptop tot de la Romtelecom. SA NU CUMVA SA FACETI ASEMENEA PROSTIE !!!!! E o porcarie totala, merge mai prost decat dial-up !

Asta e Romania anului 2011, cred ca nu exista seriozitate nicaieri ,dezinteres total , noi nu stim sa cultivam relatii si sa facem afaceri !

Berlin Day 1 & 2

English version :

I’ve been in Berlin for almost 2 full days now and have already done some serious sightseeing. Yesterday I didn’t do much since I went to Hugh’s concert but today I visited quite a lot.

So ,let’s see, I went to Olympia Stadion ,the Olympic Stadium built during the Nazi Regime for the Olympic Games in 1936. I also went to Spandau area but sadly couldn’t find the place where Spandau prison once stood because I forgot to look for the name of the street haha but Spandau is a nice place, I liked it ! Then I went to the beginning of 17 Juni boulevard and walked its whole length to Brandenburg and from then on to Wilhelmstrasse where I actually ate turkish food right across the street from the place where Hitler’s New Reichchancellory was ,on the corner of Wilhelmstrasse with VossStrasse. Then I went on to gaze at what used to be Gorings Aviation Ministry ,now Finance Ministry. That building is fucking HUGE but I kinda’ like it, it’s sorta’ simple yet elegant. Right across the street is the remaining part of the Berlin Wall and the remains of the Gestapo and SS quarters where there’s an exhibition thing that I don’t know the name of right now, something with terror. After that I went on to Friedrichstrasse and Checkpoint Charlie , walked a little on the street, drank a hot chocolate at Starbucks then went back on some other streets to Brandenburg and then the Reichstag where I took pictures, had a beer and watched the sunset. After that I went to the hotel.

It was a lovely day , I am quite fond of Berlin already, I like it and if u happen to like history then there are certainly things to see . I’m just sad that 90% of the stuff belonging to the Nazi period have been demolished because it was a fascinating period  and it’s kinda’ stupid that the communism related stuff are all used as bait for tourists yet all the nazi stuff that tourists would also pay to come and see were destroyed when they were just objects. Oh well….

Tomorrow I plan to go see the Flak Tower , I hope I can get tickets for the tour and in the morning I gotta’ go shopping….I hate shopping !

Romana :

Am avut o zi plina , prima zi petrecuta in intregime in Berlin si prima in care am vizitat. Am fost in Spandau dar n-am gasit locul fostei inchisori pt ca am uitat sa ma uit sa vad cum se chema strada haha dar a fost frumos, e o zona interesanta si am vazut citadela. Apoi am mers la Stadionul Olimpic unde m-am asezat la soare pe o banca vreo 15 minute . Apoi am plecat spre centru si am mers la capatul bulevardului 17 Iunie si am mers destul de mult pana la celalalt capat unde e si Poarta Brandenburg. Mi-a placut plimbarea totusi pentru ca bulevardul asta e inconjurat de Tiergarten ,parcul mare al Berlinului , mi s-a parut interesant. Inainte de Brandenburg e si monumentul sovietic ridicat dupa razboi…foarte interesant, mi-a placut si ala. E frumoasa si Poarta Brandenburg si zona din jur, chiar mai frumos decat ma asteptam , destui turisti, soare, cald, atmosfera. Apoi am mers pe Wilhelmstrasse, unde era centrul puterii pana dupa al 2lea Razboi Mondial si unde era si Noua Cancelarie a lui Hitler. Acum n-a mai ramas nimic din ea, sunt niste blocuri in locul ei si unde era bunkerul e un teren de joaca . Ceva mai incolo e singura cladire ramasa acolo de pe vremea lui Hitler, fostul minister al aviatiei adica a lui Goring . E o cladire imensa, mie mi s-a parut eleganta, e sobra nu are o arhitectura ostentativa ci simpla si sobra atata ca e URIASA, luuuuuuuuuuuunga, i-am facut vreo 982378573298 de poze haha. Chiar peste drum la intersectie e ce a mai ramas din zidul Berlinului si apoi un fel de expozitie a terorii(ceva de genul ii zice) locul unde era sediul SS/Gestapo.De acolo am mers la Checkpoint Charlie si dupa aia inapoi pe alte strazi spre Brandenburg de unde am mers sa vad si Reichstagul la apus, foarte frumoasa cladire, am baut o bere la o terasa cu vedere si apoi am mers la hotel.

Acu’ poze .

Exciting trip Day 2 : Hamburg + Hugh Laurie concert

Second day went by fast as well . Spent most of it sightseeing then ,around 5:30 in the afternoon , I went to Cafe Keese to make sure I have a place in front at Hugh Laurie’s first concert .

There I met loads of nice people ,some german, some dutch, an ukrainian, some french , this made waiting in line quite pleasant, it was fun and everyone was really nice and excited but civilized, no crazy people.

Around 7:00pm they let us in and I stood right by the stage, right in front of the microphone ,a few cm’s away and a couple of meters away from the piano….perfect spot ! The concert began at 8pm and Hugh was very good, he sang great, the mood was great and one could tell he is really passionate about his music. The band was wonderful as well, they deserve to get some attention for sure !

The only complaint is that Hugh should be nicer to fans, he just doesn’t seem to care so he rushed out at the end and only gave autographs for a few seconds , mostly to autograph hunters which was totally uncool especially since he had no excuse, there were only a few people around at the exit, none of them scary or crazy or desperate but whatever…I knew he wasn’t very open to his fans.

Pictures from Hamburg and Hugh’s concert. Sorry for the red eyes, I didn’t get to fix them and I couldn’t avoid it since I was really close.

Romana pt mama haha : deja ti-am povestit asa ca mai bine te uiti la poze sa fie tabloul complet ca n-are rost sa mai si scriu. Apasa pe poze sa se faca mari .

Exciting trip day 1 : Hamburg

So , I finally left on my trip YAY! First day was quite busy. At 6:10 I boarded a plane to Frankfurt then went to the train station and around 9 I was already heading to Hamburg where I arrived around 1pm and I was already out and about around 2:30pm. Went to get a feel of the center (Rathaus area) ,ate and then went to visit the harbour and Speicherstadt. I really liked this part of Hamburg, I spent about 3-4 hours around there, had a beer by the waterfront, walked around a lot ,it was definitely worth seeing.
So far I like Hamburg quite a lot and I saw the sunset by the waterfront in a recreational area around my hotel. Tomorrow I already know what I want to see before I go to Hugh Laurie’s concert !

Here are pictures

Romanian for my mom/pt mama :

Am plecat din Bucuresti la 6:10 cu Lufthansa pana la Frankfurt. De acolo am luat metroul pana la gara si de la gara am luat trenul pana la Hamburg. La 13:00 eram deja la Hamburg ,pana la 14:00 m-am cazat si apoi am plecat in oras.
Cum nu am prea mult timp la dispozitie , am facut un mini tur de forta cu 2 pauze, una de masa si una de bere in port haha.Am incercat la intamplare un carnat si a fost tare bun, imi mai iau asa ca mancarea e buna deocamdata cel putin. De vizitat am vizitat astazi putin centrul (Rathaus si imprejurimi)asa ca sa studiez terenul iar apoi am profitat de vremea buna si m-am dus sa vad portul si Speicherstadt. Mi-a placut tare mult acolo, sunt niste cladiri tare interesante si imi place atmosfera si de pe canale si din port unde e si o faleza pe care te poti plimba. Pe la 20:00 am venit inapoi in zona hotelului unde e o zona de agrement pe malul apei si am stat pe o banca sa vad apusul. Momentul de maxima placere a fost cand i-am vazut pe unii in zona asta de agrement, pe o pajiste, facand gratar dar ei fac gratar civilizat, au niste gratare mici de purtat, exista la capatul zonei verzi inclusiv un container mare in care sa arunci carbunii ,nu ard nimic si nu lasa murdarie.

Maine deja mi-am stabilit traseul, m-am prins ce e unde e
foarte repede, e usor asa ca sper sa vad cat mai mult maine pana ma duc la concert.

Apasa pe poze sa se faca mari

Christoph Waltz , you’re awesome ! Love, me

Christoph Waltz was on Jimmy Kimmell again and hilarity ensued which is only normal considering Der Humpink . So this morning I open my Tumblr dash and see the glorious gifs and then I watch the video and for the rest of the day I will now be seeing Christoph in his red pants and with his hot cocoa. What is sad is that I hear he’s gonna’ be at the premiere of Water for Elephants in Berlin on the 27th of April and I’m going to be in Berlin on the 28 cause I’m seeing Hugh in Hamburg on the 27th. Ah, why couldn’t it have been just a couple of days later so I could maybe see Christoph too *cries* ?

Here you go, Christoph Waltz on Jimmy Kimmell Live messing with American Idol
