Dear SK’s music industry,

as far as I know, South Korea’s education system is one of the most productive and efficient systems in the world. South Korea nearly the highest educated nation worldwide. That being said, I’m extremely sure you are aware that this is a continent

This is Europe.

Not a state, not a country…this is a continent.

When you constantly skip it while scheduling your world tours, may I ask, what’s going on in your mind? I know you know what and where is Europe. I know you know there are plenty of people ready to attend your concerts…..You cannot seriously tell me it’s because you don’t like it. We got everything you want! Just choose one country!

Hi everyone! ✨ I’m new to the studyblr community so let me introduce myself!

  • My name is Teresa, I’m 19 years old and I live in the northern Italy, near Venice.
  • My mother tongue is, of course, Italian, so sorry in advance for any mistakes you may find in my blog!
  • I’m at my first year of University and I chose to study Robotics Engineering because it has always fascinated me and I’ve wanted to become an engineer since I was a kid, even though, here in Italy more than in other country, it is considered a course “for males only”. In fact, I’ve been told by most of my high school teachers that I was choosing the wrong course and that I should focus on different courses, courses “for females. They said I will regret my choice. I don’t think so.
  • That’s exactly why, when it came to choosing the name for the blog, I felt very strongly that “Robotics is for girls too” was just the perfect name for mine. 
  • Besides studying and making pretty notes I also love: hand lettering, wrapping presents, reading books, black coffee, tea, libraries, vegan food, homemade sushi, going to the gym, ice skating, shiba inus, watching TV series on Netflix and playing the piano.
  • You can also find me on Instagram, here:

I really want to meet some new people so please send me a message if you feel like talking!

Lots of love 💕 ,



                        Italian Sorcery (Scuola Grande di San Rocco)

“ The Scuola Grande di San Rocco is a building in Venice, northern Italy. It is noted for its collection of paintings by Tintoretto, generally agreed to include some of his finest work. The building was the seat of a confraternity established in 1478, named after San Rocco, popularly regarded as a protector against plague.[1] The members of the “Confraternity of St. Roch” were a group of wealthy Venetian citizens. The site they chose for their building is next to the church of San Rocco which houses the remains of the saint.In January 1515 the project of the building was entrusted to Bartolomeo Bon, although some authorities assign it to his son Pietro Bon. In 1524 his work was continued by Sante Lombardo, who, in turn, three years later was replaced by Antonio Scarpagnino. Following his death in 1549, the last architect to work on the edifice was Giangiacomo dei Grigi, finishing in September 1560.[2]The design was similar to other scuole in Venice, characterized by two halls, one at ground floor level, the other at first floor level. The Sala Terra (lower) has a nave and two aisles, with the entrance from the campo[3] outside. From this hall a stair (with a landing surmounted by a dome) led to the upper storey. The Sala Superiore (“Upper Hall”) was used for meetings of the fellows and had a wooden altar. It provided access to the Sala dell'Albergo, which housed the Banca and the Zonta (the confraternity’s supervisory boards).”

Taste of St. Petersburg or where is Viktor originally from

Today is December 25th, and it is Viktor’s Birthday!

We don’t have enough information about him as human and skater, and maybe one day in season two authors will open some parts of his life, character and past. 

But we know that Viktor is from St. Petersburg. 

And I think that it is a good idea to give a brief description of the city where Viktor lives. And where currently Yuuri is. ^^

Disclaimer: I’m an inspired and proud citizen of St. Petersburg, born and raised in the city, and I still live here. I’ll try to give an overall description of city and citizens from my point of view just to make more clear picture of the city in ppl’s minds. 

Some people may agree with my vision, some may not. It is okay.

And I apologize for possible mistakes in advance, English is not my mother tongue, but I try my best. ^^

Most photos are taken from internet.

Let’s go!

Hi, everyone! As you all know, I’ll be studying abroad in Europe for 6 weeks. I leave in one week!! If you all have some recommendations for places to visit where I’ll be, I’d love them. I’ll be in Stavanger, Barcelona, Florence, Paris, Edinburgh, Prague, Liberec, northern Italy (Dolomites, Venice, Milan, etc.), Dublin, and Belfast/Northern Ireland. I’m up for recommendations for day trips or things to do within cities. I love history, architecture, art, food, and culture. I’d also like recommendations for budgeting/saving money in these cities preferably without losing much of the experience, like deals and stuff you may know of! Thanks everyone!!! Can’t wait to share my experiences with you!


                  Ode To The Mother Of Christ (Chiesa degli Scalzi)

Santa Maria di Nazareth is a Roman Catholic Carmelite church in Venice, northern Italy. It is also called Church of the Scalzi (Chiesa degli Scalzi) being the seat in the city of the Discalced Carmelites religious order (Scalzi in Italian means “barefoot”). Located in the sestiere of Cannaregio, near Venezia Santa Lucia railway station, it was built in the mid 17th century to the designs of Baldassarre Longhena and completed in the last decades of that century.

The facade in Venetian Late Baroque style, was financed by the aristocrat Gerolamo Cavazza, and erected by Giuseppe Sardi, from 1672 to 1680. The four statues in the first order, the statue of the Virgin and Child, and the statues of Saint Catherine of Siena and St Thomas Aquinas are sculpted by Bernardo Falconi.

The Carnevale di Venezia is an annual festival, held in Venice, Northern Italy. It ends with the Christian celebration of Lent, 40 days before Easter on Shrove Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday. The festival is famous for its elaborate masks and costumes. It is said that the Carnival started from a victory of the “Serenissima Repubblica” against the Patriarch of Aquileia, Ulrico di Treven, in 1162. In honor of this victory, people started dancing in San Marco Square. Apparently, the festival started at that time and became an official celebration in the Renaissance. In the 17th century, the baroque carnival was a way to save the prestigious image of Venice in the world. It was very famous during the 18th century. Under the rule of Austria, the festival was outlawed entirely in 1797 and the use of masks became strictly forbidden. It reappeared gradually in the 19th century, but only for short periods and above all for private feasts, where it became an occasion for artistic creations. After a long absence, Carnival returned in 1979. The Italian government decided to bring back the history and culture of Venice, and sought to use the traditional Carnival as the centerpiece of its efforts. The redevelopment of the masks began as the pursuit of some Venetian college students for the tourist trade. Today, 3 million visitors come to Venice every year for the Carnival. One of the most important events is the contest for la maschera più bella (“the most beautiful mask”) placed at the last weekend of the Carnival and judged by a panel of international costume and fashion designers.


Cicchetti are small snacks or side dishes, typically served in traditional “bàcari” (cicchetti bars or osterie) in Venice, Northern Italy. Common cicchetti include tiny sandwiches, plates of olives or other vegetables, halved hard boiled eggs, small servings of a combination of one or more of seafood, meat and vegetable ingredients laid on top of a slice of bread or polenta, and very small servings of typical full-course plates. Like Spanish tapas, one can make a meal of them by ordering multiple plates. Normally not a part of home cooking, the cicchetti’s importance lies not just in the food itself, but also in how, when and where they are eaten: with fingers and toothpicks, usually standing up, hanging around the counter where they are displayed in numerous bars, osterie and bacari that offer them virtually all day long. Venice’s many cicchetti bars are quite active during the day, as Venetians (and tourists) typically eat cicchetti in the late morning, for lunch, or as afternoon snacks. Cicchetti are usually accompanied by a small glass of local white wine, which the locals refer to as an “ombra” (shadow). Cicchetti is the plural form. A single piece of cicchetti is a cicchetto.

The Empirical Endeavor

TITLE: The Empirical Endeavor 


AUTHOR: Quixotic-Dreamland

ORIGINAL IMAGINE: Imagine that one day, the TARDIS lands on Asgard when there’s a royal ball being held in the palace. You both attend, and you and Loki fall in love with one another at first sight, despite the Doctor’s clear disapproval-which becomes clearer as time goes on.

RATING: Teen +

 None (so far)

“Evangeline!” a faint whisper penetrates my foggy mind, all of the whimsy fantasies of my subconscious evaporating in my brain,dreams hiding in the cracks of my mind, waiting to greet me again for the next time I drift off into slumber.

“Hmm?” I reply, gently rubbing my eyes.

“Time to wake up dear, all of time and space awaits us!”

I blink my eyes open as they come into focus, a tall man in suspenders and a bow tie is seen fiddling around with buttons and controls diligently at the center of the TARDIS.

“Morning doctor!” I greet with a yawn. “If that is indeed the time right now …”

Burano is an island in the Venetian Lagoon in Northern Italy. Like Venice itself, it could more correctly be called an archipelago of 4 islands linked by bridges. It’s known for its lacework and brightly colored houses. Burano is situated 7 km from Venice, a 40 minute trip by Venetian motorboats, “vaporetti”. The island is linked to Mazzorbo by a bridge. The current population is about 2,800. It was probably settled by the Romans, and in the 6th century was occupied by people from Altino. The colors of the houses follow a specific system originating from the golden age of its development - if someone wishes to paint their home, one must send a request to the government, who will respond by making notice of the colors permitted for that lot.
