“The trouble is that if you don’t spend your life yourself, other people spend it for you.”
For some people, their tongues are the second moving – and exhausted – part after their hearts – that’s true when they are awake; talking, and for some even while they’re sleeping 🙂. OK, maybe I am exaggerating a little bit here but it does not negate the fact that there are a few blabbers here and there – I hope not to be one of them :D.
Language – sign, body or even spoken – is the mean for us to communicate and express our feelings and wishes – nothing new added :D. Let’s focus a little bit on the spoken one especially words, I once had a question; have you really ever paid attention to the common used word or expression that comes out of your mouth? Think about it for a while, it is sort of challenging. It might be funny or annoying; loving or hating; happy or sad; good or bad; hot or cold; simple or hard, or any kind of word. Generally speaking, the way you say the word – and so the effect – can make a difference more than the meaning of the word itself, i.e. a word can leave a trace or a mark more than a bullet can do.
It is funny that when I hear certain words I immediately combine them to some people I know, and thus my face reacts towards this, smiling or bitter or any other reaction. Suddenly, many inquiries have jumped into my head; what is my common used word that – when heard – people will combine it to me? Have I really been leaving a positive or negative effect when I talk? Have I lost or gained people by such word(s)? Have I killed someone’s dream – which it might have been the last thing for him – or raised his hopes up to the sky? Have I made someone’s day or just screwed it up?
From now on, I promise to do my best that the smile will be the only thing left on people’s faces when “my common used word” comes to their ears.
If we refer to Romanians many will be surprised to notice that they are a mix between very contradictory elements.Romanians have a great part of their genetic material borrowed from Turkish people.Some reserchers even say that they are a nation born in social movements and ethnic crossroads of the world.From the mixture of several civilizations , Romanians became a western breed with oriental habits.
As the oriental and latin people , Romanians like to be warm and hospitable with others as much as they like to celebrate with every occasion they have.Their customs depend from the area they come from and that is why you would never get bored if you get to visit Romania.
For example traditional dances from the North area are totally different from the ones that originate in the South. Also customs regarding weddings, religious celebrations and death rituals are different from area to area.
The only problem with Romanians nowadays is that they don’t do anything for their future as a nation just stay and talk about what is wrong .
