I am currently a second-year student in the American University in Bulgaria and I am trying to fulfill my time in things that matter, things that fill my soul. Although I am majoring in Journalism and Mass Communication, my biggest passion is Art and all its forms. Be it old or new, Music, Literature, Philosophy, Film art, Photography and Painting are what drives me and thrives in me. This blog is only a small part of what I’ve felt and reflected about the world.
