I am Makouchyk Nastassia from Belarus, volunteer at the program of Erasmus+ “Citizens of the World” (short term program – 2 months), in the past the student of Belarus State University and in the future – the head of Interpol.
Few months ago I was sure 98% that in the future I would move to Romania – after coming to the program I am sure 100%.
It has never happened to me before but to tell the truth,
I do not know what to write about,
I always have plenty of thoughts about everything.
Probably are too many things to talk about here –
Or Romania perhaps is too close to tell something.
But still I have some moments that are stuck in my head,
And maybe in this way I will get rid of them.
In my opinion, this program is really good, especially if you have been dreaming to go to Romania for a year. Also once more bonus will be if you like children because here we are working with different ones. Some days ago I was going home and had understood that I really love them. These children are adorable, interesting and really helpful, I mean, when you are practicing your Romanian and do not know a word or do not understand something they really try to help you.
During this month lots of exiting things had happened and also I have known a lot of new information. It will take so much time to tell about; that is why I am not going to do it, because almost every day for me to be here is something special.
Anyway I want to tell you two facts which are in my head when I am thinking about this experience but I do not tell it to anybody because it is strange and a little bit boring.
- One of the first things I have noticed was the smell of Romanians. Maybe it is just a thing of băimăreni, but every time when I am walking down the street– if a person does not wear perfume – I feel the smell of the same laundry detergent. Is it the conspiracy?
- In Russian language we have some problems with word formation of the feminitives and, during learning Romanian, I have found that some of modern feminitives the same as in Romanian, but I remember only the one and it is doctoriță.
In the end, I want to say that I am happy to be sitting now in the chair, eating the best biscuits in the world without sugar from the Art School and, in fact, I am just awfully happy to be here.
