Today I bought two books about Chuvash (because it’s connected with Proto-Bulgarian) and Mongolian language (because why not). My mom just looked and me and asked: “Five languages are not enough for you? Are you insane?”. A little bit.

It’s a miracle that I didn’t bought Polish-Slovak and Slovak-Polish dictionary. It costed only 58 zł, but then my Poor Polish Student Heart said: “Okay, but it’s almost 60 zł. You can buy 6 portions of baozi or over 30 soups at the cheapest and THE BEST place in the city”.

Hunger won.

Tales of a Polish Space Bear

It’s finally done!!!! My first original short, and I couldn’t be happier on how it turned out.

Rise And Fall

6x10 reaction fic

He sees Dalton again in a dream. Wispy and opaque and in flashes of nonsense the way dreams are: His shoes clacking on the polished floors. Some unidentifiable student handing him a cloth-covered book in the library. He sits at a handsome heavy oak table, puts his feet up and realizes he can’t read the title. It’s blurry, gibberish. Then not even there at all.

He’s in biology, stacking sheet music, watching dust motes swirl and quiver in a beam of sunlight coming from a window he can’t see.

He’s in his dorm waiting to shower. He’s in someone else’s room, wearing a red and white McKinley Titan’s gym T-shirt.

Someone is telling him to go, run, go. It’s his own voice. But he can’t. He can’t just leave his kids and leave Dalton, it’s safe there, they need it, they need him. He can put out the fire, he can. If he could just stop panicking for a second.
