Zadnje čase se vse zaostruje in slabša. Svetle točke življenja vse bolj postajajo redke. Apatija prevzema vse več ljudi, molk in beda pa nas spremljata na ulicah, za stenami stanovanj, počasi pa zavzema tudi internet. Ja, tudi mali virtualni svet ni več zatočišče pred tem. Kriza ni več vsakdanja tema, saj je to prežvečeno. Počasi postaja vsakdanja tema lakota, ki je postala preveč razširjena, da bi lahko še naprej ostala skrivnost. Počasi sta revščina in lakota tisto, kar je bilo včasih počitnice in zabave. Nezaposlenost je postala bolj pogosta kot zaposlenost, pomanjkanje časa počasi nadomešča strmenje v steno, saj ni več svetlega cilja. Socialna država, ki to ni. Država, ki obljublja vse, ostanejo pa male drobtine in zategovanje pasu na tistih, ki so zadnji, ki bi resno lahko kaj naredili glede tega. Začarana spirala uperjena navzdol, ki ji ni videti konca. Vsi si želimo odrešitve. Kruha in iger smo deležni, slepila so nam na voljo vsak dan. Mali škandali, ki pretresejo naša drago malo deželo, so odlična tema za obiranje ob kavi ali na klopi v parku. Afrika in njena beda in žalost se zdita tema, ki jih začenjamo doživljati doma, na svojem pragu. Pa ne, da ni bilo vedno tako, a sedaj je to postalo preblizu, šlo je čez mejo naše intime.

Moti me naša apatičnost. Moti me neangažiranost mladih. Moti me lakota. Moti me revščina. Moti me brezup. Moti me nezmožnost izbire. Moti me idealistični razkol. Moti me spor. Moti me, da je skrb otrok, ali bodo jutri jedli ali ne. Moti me gledanje istih obrazov na oblasti odkar pomnim. Moti me zaskrbljenost, ki kot črn oblak visi nad vsemi nami.




Rada bi stopila naprej. Rada bi pretrgala ta brezup. Rada bi, da bi vsi imeli brezskrbno otroštvo, toplo posteljo, streho nad glavo in ljubeče starše. Rada bi, da bi se nekaj spremenilo. Rada bi, da bi se uvidelo, da brez povezanosti ljudi ne bo spremembe. Rada bi, da bi lahko pomagala komu. Rada bi, da bi ljudje odšli spat brez skrbi, kaj bo jutri s službo in ali jim bo čez mesec ostalo dovolj denarja, da bodo otroku plačali malico.



Vem, da se to ne bo spremenilo čez noč. Vidim pa moč v ljudeh, ki vedo, da se je vredno boriti. Ljudem, katerih ideje so nesebične in še v teh težkih časih spreminjajo svet na bolje. In vsi vemo, da so te spremembe nujne. Vsak lahko hitro primakne svoj lonček. Ste kdaj videli otroka, ki riše risbico, ter jo pokloni nekomu? Malenkost, ki jim že z malim hvala da vedeti, da so misli nekoga ušle vsaj za sekundo drugam. Kaj pa je ekvivalent risbice pri odraslih? Kaj nematerialnega nam lahko podari popoln tujec, da nas razveseli? Nasmeh? Pozdrav?



Dajmo, stopimo skupaj in se zavejmo, da smo za določene stvari krivi sami in da odgovornost zase ni dovolj. Da apatija in sovraštvo nista tisto, kar bo rešilo vse skupaj. Da smo sposobni več. Da lahko pomagamo.

Last post on Phillips Fashion Week

I've done three posts on shows at fashion week now but told nothing of other things happening.
Well, there was a debate about trademarks and their promotion on twitter or facebook. Well, If I didn't like two persons on the stage so much, I'd left after few minutes. Why? Some people are just getting on my nerves to much to handle. *tells herself to breathe in .... and out....*

There was also a debate on music. Goldierocks and Matjaž Ambrožič talked about Radio Selector which can be heard in Slovenia on radio Terminal. (hint, you can find it with clicking on banner here on my blog ;) ) And it was awesome. Yes, if I like people and everything else sucks sometimes I still feel it was great. Well this is not the case. I liked people, I liked the debate, and it was great. Pha!

In the evenings after show there was free booze (one time vodka and two times gin (Bombay Sapphire, my favourite)) and great music. One day it was 80's themed music, the other day it was Elle party, the third day it was just great music. :)

And then there was afterparty at Cirkus with Goldierocks. I dislike the place, so I was about to run just after Goldierocks took the stage. Well, I didn't and went home way too late to function normally.
So yes, it was fun.

It was a great week, I'm gonna end it with a little playlist I made...




Phillips Fashion Week Day 3

So the third and last day of fashion shows was even more crowded than all days before.
First show was again at 18.30
Eric Matyash (where one of the girls almost landed face down to the catwalk. Poor girl, I really felt sorry for her :S) Can I hear you say BZZZZZZZZ? :P

Anđela Lukanovič
Petja Zorec with all male collection
Matevž Fanagel and stripes and white and black and... <3
Ivan Rocco went all vintage but I wouldn't mind that skirt coming to my closet :D
20.30 and last show
Peter Movrin being animalistic.

Sanija Reja Aske and another skirt I wolud like to have


Garevski. I am a fan now.


Marta Vodeb and bring on the night in old Ljubljana few decades ago.


JSP and wide sholders and turtly necks
NatasaHrupic and some cool collars.








Philips Fashion Week Ljubljana day 2

So, I am a bit late but still here ;) to tell you about the second day of Philips Fashion week in Ljubljana. It was crowded, people crawling one over another under the stairs are not my favourite place to be. Or better yet to do. Yes, I am always complicating. :)

So, the first show was at 18.30

Maja Ferme presented very prom-like collection and the little princess part of my heart was filled with pleasant feelings. All in all I wasn't that impressed.
Next one was Krznjarstvo Eber. Vivid fur isn't my cup of tea. Even natural coloured one is not favourite. Interesting choices for summer, don't you think?
Alice Bossman surprised me. It was a very wearable collection, a lot of whites and very summerish feel. I am a fan now. :)
Next one was Mojca Celin with flower collection.
Simona Lampe with spring rain collection made me want to dance in the rain. If someone wants to buy me that coat, I wouldn't mind, I promise :)
Miro Mišljen created circus. Shiny wigs, red lips pasted to male model's faces. A monkey or two to go with it wouldn't do no harm :)
Maja Štamol.

So, there was also another show at 20.30.
There we saw:

Sofia Nogard
Aleksandra Brlan with very wearable collection. I like it. :)
Ana Jelinič with funny headwear and awesome(!) camera necklaces.
Dajana Ljubičič with animalistic prints and asymetric details
Nena Florjančič and another coat I wouldn't mind having
Nika Ravnik with clear lines and pepita fabric. :)



Nelizabeta was so tottaly me. Colours, stylings, shoes. I loved it. Really loved.

Philips fashion week Ljubljana day 1

So here we are, first day of fashion week Ljubljana is over. It was nice. So many cool things happening on spot in a small city like Ljubljana. It always fascinates me how many designers we have in country with 2mil people. Considering we have everything similar to big cities we needed to have fashion week as well. It is not the first one but it sure is nice.
So, I need to point out what a cure design there is used for the whole thing. The artist is Mitja Bokun. If you are interested in fashion illustrations, you should check him out.
There is also a official radio, Radio Terminal. Do I even need to introduce it? No? Exactly, I have it on my blog as a widget, I did a post about it...
So I shall move on to today's runways.

The first one was Almira Sadar. ( I want this blazer) There were few really cute pieces but the shoes.. Flip flops with heel strap? Really? No, I do not like them. I do not even see point in that!


Next one was Draž. Knitted wear was never my favorite but this clothes were cute.
Tanja Zorn... I wonder how much the necklace costs, It was stunning!
Farandula. I have no idea why but I hardly remember what the collection looks like.
Niti niti. It was like a huge splash of colours. WIth lollypops. And Coca Cola!

The last one was Akultura.Not my cup of tea, must admit.
After all that there was a party. VH1 party ( is it time to make a joke how VH1 is MTV for old people?) with 80's and Finlandia drinks. I would mention it is 2 am and I need to go to sleep. So, day one is over, two more to go!

TEDxLjubljanaEd

See, there is one thing about TEDx events. Once you get hooked to those, you cannot get away, no matter the theme of talks. So I might go to  event with a theme I'm not interested in and find it interesting? Yes, it might be so.
Today there was an event about education. I am still part of educational system, but it is not in  sphere of my most important interests. So what have I learned?
That culture has a huge impact on us, what is pH of sperm, what are the new trends in education in elementary school (where I might add, I wouldn't switched if I was forced to pick between my elementary school and the trendy one). There was said a lot about solving the problems that are now only coming up but... See, if you ask me ( and I believe some joker or two might say something like: I'm not. :D) there is not school who should help us learn how to solve the specific issue, there should be teaching us how to solve any problem we might find in any efficient way. And yet again there would be only a few engaged enough to really make that knowledge work. See, it is not only the educational system that is a problem. I know I was the one curious and everything and I know there were ones who were good at learning things at heart and there were people who were into sports. So there is no perfect educational system. Never was, never will be.
As I wandered far away from TEDx and started to jabbering about my own views there is only one thing left to say... TEDx is cool.

Sanghai Gypsy

You know how films made in one country are all the same? Like happy Hollywood endings, artish french movies,... So, Slovenian movies are know mostly for being depressive, everyone is drinking and being drunkard is a theme almost every time. Next one is violence. And drugs. Prostitution.
But times are starting to change. Slovenian movies are getting better again. Yesterday, I was at premiere of new Slovenian movie, Shanghai Gypsy. I went there (severely underdressed, as I went there straight from work) with almost no expectation. And at the end I was amazed. Movie about gypsies and not pushing stereotypes. Movie about Yugoslavia falling apart and not showing how good or bad that was. Woah. So for everyone who likes movies about family, about different culture, I recommend this movie.

Monday, 27 August 2012

Hey, blog. I am still alive, no worries, just my world is filled with 140 characters messages and school books. Writing seems to be hard lately and my inspiration lasts for about three minutes and then it's gone. This wasn't my best summer ever, and it is getting more sucky with every passing moment. I cannot believe, but I might be even happy to wait for fall, just keep the temperature above 20 degrees and getting some more people I like in my life wouldn't hurt as well. I mean, some things are my fault, but this bad luck and idiotic happenings are a bit much for me.
I miss feeling on top of the world. I am doing everything to make me feel like that again, but am not succeeding. Maybe it's my negative attitude or is just life with it's ups and downs.
I mean, it's not all bad, I have some days when I feel like everything is great, but after few hours of lying to myself it all comes back and hits me in the face. I haven't manage to finish with exams, I have no idea if I will be able to finish it this year. If not, there will be some problems. The biggest one will be breaking the news to my parents. We really don't get along lately and failing will not help it. I think they would not speak to me for some time if that happens.
Am currently jobless as well and soon to be broke as well. I miss photography and I have a project in mind, just need to do something with my camera.
I have been procrastinating for some time this year, that is true, but lately (since march) i am more than working my ass off. Yes, complaining how this world is not fair and how it sucks will not help me so I better get back to work.
Wish me luck for my life. I mean exams. and job. Well, life.

I've changed. I've grown up. matured. And I am not sure if I am comfortable with myself right now. I've become a pessimist. I became like people who I really didn't like when I was growing up. I've become one with no time to be there for the others, to do fun stuff and to just let go. I mean I still loose up sometimes, but those times are really special and there is not many of those.
One of the worst things there is is the fact I've noticed it myself. I am not glad that it happened.
Before it was the teenage drama, which is quite bearable but now it became consistent bitching over everything happening. I lost my happy go lucky smile. If few years younger me met today's me I'd smack myself on a head with a huge hammer few times.
So there is a task for myself, get that attitude back. It makes things seem easier even if they're not. It felt like everything is interesting and there were no borders to do anything. At least there didn't seem like there is any problem, so I could overcome everything just because I didn't see it.
But writing this also made me realize that it isn't just me changing. There are changes in everyone of us. And changes of people around me is also a problem for me because I don't seem to find a way to pass them. It is forcing me down and my struggle to keep my head above the water seems to be hard.
Well, my task is clear.

This blog is not dead, it is just resting.

May must have been the craziest month ever! There were so many things going on I barely had time to breathe. I do not even remember all the events and things going on all month.
Looking at calendar I think I would sum it like:
* Euro u-17 ... Yes, we held a football championship for boys under 17 years. The first three matches were on four stadiums (Ljubljana, Domžale, Maribor and Lendava), semi-finals and final were in Ljubljana.My favourites won, woohoo for the Netherlands!
*Estelle concert I wrote about.
*Final of Champions League which I watched in a bar with two giants in front of me *rage*
*In Kiberpipa, there started Smerokaz,there will be some really awesome lectures about jobs every second monday, the next one is 4 of June and there will be something about social media. Welcome to join!
*On our college, there was TEDxFDV, but as I was really tired I hardly remember anything. I just know the most inspiring thing I heard was that you should do a month lasting project every now and then.
 Well, you see, this were the highlights. Oh, and I saw Dark Shadows. Burton is still genious, Depp is still drop dead gorgeous with goofy makeup.
Right now I have so many plans, and I need to study... So maybe blog will hibernate some more, but, I'll be back.

Oh, and say hi to King Charles, my latest music obsession.

Estelle

Estelle
Cover of Estelle
You know, the one artist you loved for so long you can hardly remember when you first heard him... or her? And realizing she is coming to our country I knew I had to go see it.
Estelle is really energic, charismatic and she lifted me up. Not even considering the fact I was working whole week... And when I say work, I mean 8+ hours per day. Well, an hour and half or so, all of my fav songs and confetti floating in the air and one of best crowds I've been with on a concert.
I must say, I really loved it.

4square day

Are you one of smartphone owners? And you have a bunch of applications on it? Is one of them Foursquare?
If so, you are quite sure familiar with getting into bar with friends and checking in. I was a huge fan when I had HTC Wildfire and during the period of two Sony Ericssons and an LG I let it go because there is no app, just web page which doesn't allow you to be a mayor of the location.
So in Ljubljana, there was the second #4sqday meeting. We gathered on the square, checked in and got some cool stickers and badges. We didn't get swarm badge but were really close (49 people checked in to Prešernov trg.).
Not getting it seemed like a good reason to drink,right? So we moved to bar, called LP, where Nokia promotion of Lumia 800 was going on. Well best part of it was ... Cocktails. Yes, I am easy to satisfy. :)

Well,  all in all, it was a great day, it was nice to meet people I knew only from internet and it was nice to see some friends.

Also, photos are stolen from Had. Thanks.

Sunday




Sunday morning after weekend when my to do list didn't get any shorter, but at least i helped around the house and made one kickass asparagus shrimp risotto. I think I'll pull allnighter tonight, I have tones of work to do and I hate doing everything last minute, but I cannot do it different. Also, I'm not getting any younger and I feel I need more and more sleep and it bugs me, I like not sleeping, I like being on the run all the time.
On the other hand, I'm gonna stop complaining how busy my weeks are. At least those weeks are productive. On weeks when I have nothing to do I also don't catch up with my studiying or anything like that, on the other hand on busy weeks I do. Logic is not my best friend, yes, good observation.
And... Can I please get my sunny days back? Please? I really don't like the cloudy foggy days because I feel sleepy as hell all day. Well, I need to get few huge strong cups of tea and it'll be alright.
So off we go, a busy week ahead, and I'm gonna rock it.

Coachella

It is not summer yet here, right now the weather is really moody, some rain, some sun, clouds, well, to be honest, it is acting like a teenager with worst mood swings ever. But we all know the summer is coming (no, not winter, I am not watching GoT yet, i need to read books first) and what is the best thing about the summer besides sun? Music festivals, of course. Since here is no weather, and in USA there is, we're starting with one of best festivals.... Coachella. I love it mainly because it has online streaming.
Coachella
And what I found most useful on the page is the fact you can import artists into your Google calendar or iCal and it helps a great deal with calculating hours, otherwise I'd be the one who'd miss it all due to wrong calculations. On my list are so far Arctic Monkeys (yes, my favourite band is not doing any european festival this year, at least i get to see them online, right?), The Black Keys, The Vaccines, Kaiser Chiefs, Noah Gallagher's High Flying Birds, Kasabian, Beirut, Gotye and Florence and the Machine.
The only problem I see here is that all those concerts are at really weird hours. But I hope it's gonna be worth staying awake three nights. No, not hope, I believe.
Has anyone been to Coachella?

Talking about my generation...



 Y generation. We are marked as little unuseful brats that have no manners whatsoever and don't know what's right and what is wrong. But I need to disagree.
I have no problems with greeting people I know, no matter what's their status, I am awkward with small talks but always trying to be polite. Please and thanks are two words I use on daily basis, I stand up on a bus unless I am dizzy. 
I hate people looking down on us like we got no manners. It is not true. It is like in every generation, some people have manners, some don't.
Thank you for your attention.

TEDxChange Ljubljana, 5.4.2012

Do you know TED talks? And their little broters, TEDx events?
NO? Shortly, that is a series of really awesome speeches held by either successful people or people who can be an inspiration to other people. TEDx are events which aren't organized by the original TED team, but have the same goal. To inspire, to share and to show the world not everything is bad, no matter the crisis.
This time the theme was change. We heard about brain diseases, about genetics, complexity, jobs nowadays, about user un-friendly state web portals, about Ljubljana being the Silicon Gardens, about learning how to think and how to build a house from virgin materials.
Before that, there was a streaming of TEDxChange event from Berlin, organized by Bill Gates. I must admit, I really adore TED talks but it didn't feel right to watch it on screen, and I think we all anticipated our speakers.
I felt inspired. Again. I need a dose of motivation and verbal ass kicking to think more about what can I do and how should I do it. TEDx events give me just that.
Next event is already planned. TEDxFDV, 22.5 on our college. Cannot wait!

All photos are borrowed from Matej Kolakovic. Do not steal them!

I did it.

Yes, I did something that took a lot of balls put in that. And I might regret it sometime, but right now I feel good about myself. Slowly succeeding with some goals which weren't meant to be reached so soon but there I am, and not gonna complain about it.

Thursday, 5 April 2012

Feeling empty after finishing one of my lately started projects. Mostly the empty feeling goes to not putting enough effort in it. I never liked to be the one who slacked and didn't put anything in. It is just not me.
In other news, feeling something you know it's gonna end badly, no matter what you do is never good. Never!

FWLJ 12

No, I was not actually there, yet I can tell you something about it. Three days of fashion in Ljubljana is one of the projects or events I never miss noticing. We might be small, but we have some interesting designers who hadn't run away. Yet.
Miro Misljen

First day was the day for young designers and I must admit that I loved what I saw (on photos).
Maja Ferme

Due to very busy week I just dropped by on second day, and I must admit, I felt like an elephant there, but in 3 minutes I saw and greeted 3 friends and almost bump into one of my fav slovenian fashionistas, Ursa Jerkic. *fanscream*
Farandula

So yesterday I decided that I should support our designers more. Just wait until I get some money, so I will be able to afford some pieces. Just wait.
Niti niti

NatasaPersuh

Nina Susnjara

Yes, It ended. The second one. Hopefully I'll be able to see the third one live.


At the end I must thank Ljubeznice for lending me her photos. Thanks babe*
