Dear diary ,

   Today it was one of the most beautiful days of my life, as many unexpected and wonderful aspects happened to me. I had the opportunity to know, through Filit's work, two contemporary writers. It's about Ioana Bradea and Andrei Craciun, who impressed me, because their writings are based on the feeling of freedom. They are highly rated authors.
   The whole activity was initiated by Professor Serinella Zara, an eminent teacher in the school where I learn. As moderator, her hard work was heavy but endowed with praise and memorable gestures. What really impressed me is the complex level through which the teacher approached the whole development of things to the smallest representative details. I appreciated  her for the huge effort and passion that were put in the whole event.
  The authors' confessions were somewhere between the challenge of sensibility, the invitation to reflection and meditation,  the emotional experience, the communicative openness and self-knowledge. Both using  a colloquial (Ioana Bradea) and a spontaneous language (Andrei Craciun) , ........ have manifested sympathy and affection towards us, the receptors. I asked various questions, and they answered with sincerity.
    There was also a special moment for the writers: a video that portrays the vision of Andrei Craciun's creations in the book "Poems for the Unknown."
For Ioana Bradea, we made an album about her work and her artistic preferences. Writers have made an honorable impression on the club in which we are volunteers - "Logos".
   At the end, both of  the artists signed our books  or our t-shirts. I took pictures and talked face to face with the authors. What has forever marked me at these Filit meetings was the originality of the atmosphere and the depth of expression, because  "people are not different because of what they say, but because of what they do. " ( Mihai Eminescu )

Dear diary,
     
     Today was a very exciting day. I participated at an out-of-school  activity related to Romanian language in a school in my town. It was, actually, a contest, in which I presented an essay, dedicated to ”Dimitrie Cantemir”  highschool. The project was called "Teenage's Avatars. Images in Literature ".
      I have prepared for this activity a long time ago. I read two books related to the theme. They were called "Blind teen's novel" by Mircea Eliade and "Rem" by Mircea Cărtărescu . Between these two  we have made a literary parallel. I have documented and studied various books on the internet and also valued  my talents and imagination by writing about these  two volumes. I like the book "The Blind Teenager's Novel" as I find myself in the author's vision, as well in his deep ideas. "Rem" has not fascinated me in totally, because  the writer approached  some small aspects which I have never experienced.
      My Romanian teacher helped me a lot in drafting my work, constantly checking me and correcting any minor mistakes. She adviced me to study  books of literary criticism. She trusted me constantly, that  is why I am extremely grateful to her.
       When I had to write the essay, I had, of course, emotions. I introduced myself and  began  to speak coherently about the subject of the teenage years, with all its joys and delights. The discourse was marked by clarity, expressiveness and rigour of ideas, as confirmed by the evaluating teachers . Finally, the people in the room  claped me and yelled  "Congratulations! " and  "We are waiting a lot more from  you!". I felt honored  and proud of my accomplishment.
         I expect these days to get an answer which will confirm my hard work and I hope it will be a happy one.

Dear diary, -trip to a certain location -

Today was an exciting and tiring day. I visited, together with the  form master and the classmates, the Botanical Garden in Iasi. I really liked the beauty of the colours  and vegetal  diversity. I spent a wonderful day with my classmates. In all the systematic sections of the whole concurse of circumstances, I contemplated beautiful  aspects  and stunning colours. In the greenhouse concurse of circumstances, I saw Mediterranean, tropical, subtropical plants (cactus  collections) and ornamental flowers. I reminded myself of the linden, hornbeam, oak, beech, poplar and sycamore maple plantations in the dendrological section. At the "Rozarium" section I noticed over six hundred types of roses:  midget  roses, rising roses etc. (I did not remember all ) The ornamental, grassy and woody plants were located and grouped according to the succession of the flourish. At the flora and vegetation section of Romania, species that are threatened with extinction or rare category have noted. We took photos  and team projects on the basis of the knowledge gained in this activity. We bought souvenirs. I went through this visit to the botanical garden in the fascinating universe of botanical biology.
