It is supposed to be a scary day and it is, in some way. I somehow feel like being at the edge of a cliff and almost falling, but when I look back I realize I was in a very bad place when I was 19, even at 9 years old. So looking ahead is not as scary as it was when I was younger.
It is a mixture o relief and anxiety, a feeling that somehow I am a better version of myself than I was 10 years ago. I feel free to reinvent myself and learn new stuff.
Age it’s not just a number, it is a reminder that you have to improve yourself in some way.
Because it is my birthday I will share with you people some of the best pictures of me taken this year.
I am wearing a traditional Romanian costume from Cluj, Transilvania.
