The one with "quotes,stories,comments"

              Lastly, I read forum's topic which was very special to me. It gave me a lot of motivation, comprehension and enterteinment. Now my goal isn't just writting a post here like I did in the past, I just want to have a place where I can hide these words and back to them whenever I want. So this is a first post which I write for myself( sorry guys ). I will mention some of these words and stories here, which I regarded as a very powerful. So the tittle of theard was " What is something someone said that changed your way of thinking forever?" and here some of comments,quotes and stories which I like the most.

"You will meet people that see a lot more in you than you see in yourself. It’s crazy and kind of unbelievable, but that’s what love is."

How you live each day is how you live your life.
Simplistic, I know. Up until the point that I heard that from a friend, I had all these awesome ideas of who I was, who I was gonna be and what I wanted to do, but hearing this made me realize I wasn't going to do or be any of the things I thought unless I started living them each day. "

"There's no need to thank me. It's an honor to do good."

"We judge ourselves by our intentions but others by their actions"

 "If you're the smartest person in the room, you're in the wrong room. "

"Do you feel victory when your words cause pain?"

As a teenager I started pouting after a coach yelled at me. He looked at me said "the time to worry is when I quit yelling at you because that means I've decided you're not worth the effort".

Sounds cliche and stupid but
"Don't let anyone or anything live in your head for rent free"
Heard that on my first day in drug treatment. Almost have two years sober

I was in San Francisco on a school trip and I went out of our hostel for a cigarette. I was going through some shit at the time and wasn't handling it well. A homeless man came up and asked for a cig, so I gave him one and he sat and smoked with me. He asked what was bothering me, so I told him I was having some trouble with my girlfriend but I was okay, and he told me something I've never forgotten.
"Son, stop pretending you're okay. You're not okay. Sometimes in life shit happens and you won't be okay, but that's okay."

Never make fun of someone for things they can't change.

The one with " Euro 2016 "

                    European championship's time is coming. In the television, we can see the pictures of Szczęsny or Lewandowski. The tension is growing slowly. The footballers start to be everywhere. We can see their smilling faces in the supermarkets, on our daily products, in the magazines, literally they are everywhere. Sometimes I think that the time before the great tournament is even more pleasent than the tournament itself. The hopes are big, everything seem to be good, we are looking forward to our representation winning easily the matches. Dreams are big, people who watch football occasionally tell something about the medals or big success. And then the reality comes, we hear the fans's complaining, the football players's excuses and the more disappointed speak something about changing our national sport. In general, all last our tournaments ended the same, big hopes and big dissapointment. But will it be the same this time ? Honestly, I have no idea. I can just share with you some of my predictions and my knowdlege which I belive is quite big. So first of all, we won't win rather any medals, I won't hope for it, but we have very good team. We have the players which good quality. We have a guy who was the top scorer in Bundesliga, the one who won european league, the one who was chosen to the best eleven players in Serie A and the one who is very good goalkeeper. In addition, our team is very good, we have some decent players and some great. Compared with Ukraine or Northern Ireland ( which are our group rivals) we have much better team. Looking at these facts and our chances we shouldn't worry about the bad scenario from the past. I think and I also hope that It will be first tournament since a long time when polish fans won't be dissapointed.

The one with " observation "

                     I was told many times that our book’s perception is changing with the times. I belived, but I had no idea how much it’s true. Lastly I reread two books which I have already known. And after all, I was very surprised how many things I noticed now, which I overlooked in the past. My book’s perception was different. I liked these books, but from utterly other reasons than now.  And it’s no matter of memory. I just notice new things, my attention was attracted to something else than before. So I’ve concluded that maybe books which seemed to me boring or difficult before, wouldn’t be so bad now?  I am not telling that it is a time for me to read Ulysses( I heard a lot of stories about how difficult that book is to read ) but maybe for some other titles that I gave up ?

"The one with the competition "

                    I have to admire that I like read the other blogs. I think that is a great way to learn something new. So, I read occasionally blogs of my classmates, which couple of them are realy good and interesting . Nevertheless today I want to share with you something else. I want to show you some blogs about living in Poland which are written by the foreigners. I like to know what people from the other countries think about Poland. It is very interesting for me to know something from the differents point of views. The best thing in their blogs is that they show me something which I considered as a normal thing like an oddity. It is very confusing, suprising and funny when I have to agree with them and say yeah it is actually a little weird. So they show me well-known stuff in a quite new way.

               The first blog, is written by an American from Florida who is a teacher. She writes about differences beetwen Poland and America. She writes about everything e.g. the weather, education , traditions, people, languages, travelling.

Next in line is brazilian's blog. This is really interesting because Brazil is so far and brazil people seem to be so different than us. He writes about history, daily life, stereotypes, interesting places and more. Generally, all these blogs have a lot in common.

Next blog is written by another american woman. She knows a lot of about our country and history. She writes about the policy, life in Poland, traditions. She is funny and intelligent in my opinion.

Ok so, these are three blogs which I wanted to show you, I know a little more but in the end they are my competition isn't :) ?

The one with "The photos"


                I was thinking about my next post for a long time, I had no idea what I can write here and then I came up with an idea, why I have to write something? Why I can't just show you something ? Watching the photos is also quite interesting, isn't? So I picked some photographies which are kind of famous photos and propably you would know some of them, but I hope I will show you something new. Most of them is rather positive and funny so I hope you will enjoy it.

"The one with where have you been? "

                    When I saw an advertisement on the internet I said to myself that I want to be there. It happened on saturday night in Poznań. There was about 200 people, all thing took place in the castle in the mysterious atmosphere. The lights were dimmed, the circle of people was sitting on their chairs and listening carefully. What was that? The event called '' Noc 1001 basni ''. When I first saw the information about that on my facebook I thought that can be the interesting experience. I always liked the fairy tailes, but I haver never listened to them live. Of course I was listening the audiobooks or reading the books with great stories, but the listening tailes live, that could be more interesting. I came up in the castle near 9:00 p.m. After a while, I bought a ticket from the ticket collector and she showed me where to sit. I looked around and saw the people of all ages. There were the kids, the students, the old people. First on the scene I saw a man about 50 who was taking a fairy tail about a boy who found the treasure. He was telling quite well, he attracted my attention without any problem but I was hoping for little more. Next one was an young girl with her tail about the animals. To my surprise she was very vell, she imitated sounds, she modulated her voice and she was even screamed once or twice . After that, there was more people who were telling the stories. Around mindnight I thought it's time to go, after about 10 stories I was succesfully convinced that there is a huge different beetwen listening stories on audiobook and listening to it live.

"The one with the cinema "

I think the year 2016 will be very good for the cinema. There are some movies that I’m really looking forward to see it. Here is a list.

The Hateful Eight – New Tarantino's movie, I saw it and unfortunately I can't say too much good words on it.

The revenant – New movie with Leonardo Di Caprio, I've heard that this movie is very interesting and plot is much more complicated than The hateful eight.

Suicide Squad – Will Smith as a deadshot and Jared Leto as a Joker. I like almost all movies with Will Smith so I'm looking forward to see it definitely. .

Warcraft – I think that it will be a hit. I know a game and it has a lot of fans so I'm sure that this movie will be very profitable. Have you seen a trailer? No? So look at it, this movie can be “second LOTR”

X-Men: Apocalypse - Something for Marvell fans, I like almost all adaptations of marvell comics so I'm expecting very good entertainment in hollywood style.
