A Profound Look Back at the Week: July 12-18

It’s the middle of the summer in this part of the world. Mid-July, specifically, is called the Great Heat, which sounds a lot better in Bulgarian but I’m not used to translating BG-EN, so that’s all you get, I’m afraid. And because it is too hot to think of something potentially witty to write about, here’s a bunch of random pictures I’ve taken recently. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: July 12-18

A Profound Look Back at the Week: May 24-29

Have you noticed how life is full of surprises and how they always come when you’re preparing for a prolonged period of surpriselessness? No? You must be lucky, then. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: May 24-29

A Profound Look Back at the Weeks: April 26 – May 9

These past two weeks have been a time of trials and torture but also of reward for perseverance. You’ll notice I’m doing the subheadings a little differently, with the song of the same title because why not. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Weeks: April 26 – May 9

A Profound Look Back at the Week: March 22-28

A Profound Look Back at the Week: September 7-13

It’s been another week of scary statistics, another round of  Who Will Guess Where The Economy is Going, and an almost unique experience for our household: temporary separation. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: September 7-13

A Profound Look Back at the Week: August 24-30

Tonight on PLBW: Irina braves a mountain and her healthy respect of heights and lives to survive another seven days of heat.

Okay, I actually schedule these posts for the afternoon on GMT/morning on EST but I couldn’t resist this. Imagine it in Jeremy Clarkson’s voice. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: August 24-30

A Profound Look Back at the Week: July 27 – August 2

My least favourite month has started and I apologise to all who happen to have been born in August. I’m sure you’re all lovely people but I have a thing for August and it is not a good thing. And I have good reasons for it, including three incidents that required urgent medical attention and two deaths. Suffice it to say I don’t expect anything good from August. But you never know.
