What is the difference between American and Russian methods of teaching? Do I have stare-at-window-moments in my life? For what concrete things I love my European Solidarity Corps experience? Why the first week at the Foundation became an exotic one and who is a newbie at our office?

Find the answers in my weekly review ;)

Do you know any fortune tellers or whiches, whatsoever, who can cure me from being a rain-magnet-person? I just wonder why I go to Krakow and it is raining there, I go to Wroclaw and it's raining there too. Ok, then I stay at home in Warsaw and it starts raining here too!!! Well, probably, it's the weather. But why, oh God, why when workdays start, holidays over, and all my guests left, the weather starts to be JUST LIKE IN A FAIRYTALE!!! With snowflakes, Christmas lights, and snowmen... It drives me crazy, really!!!

Ok, enough with complaint :) This first week of a new year read about what a true perfect trip is, three small New Years, saying goodbye over and over, plans, ideas, motivation and quite an unusual Christmas Eve.

Christmas and traditions, old friends and even older memories, trips and buses, laughing and coughing, tears and dwarfs, and lots of sweet memories!

Happy New Year, readers! May this year be awesome for you! The ship in harbour is safe, but that is not what the ships are built for. So build your own ship and sail your life!

This week appears to be my final working week this year so I had to finish everything before my dear sister and friend Olia come :) Also, this week was filled with Christmas parties and many preparation stuff so that is why it is called 'Everything at once!'

Trips around two Polish regions, new experience and acquaintances with Study Tours to Poland Program. Are you aware that this amazing program is available not only for active and goal-oriented students?

Also, this week I was a helper at Jarmark Bożonarodzeniowy * Різдвяний Ярмарок and took part in Warsaw Group (the active group of NGO Foundation of Regional Initiatives) first meeting! Happy to share my emotions with you :)

Here is my little celebration today - blogoversary! Means, there are 10 weeks of my staying, living, and being here in Warsaw! Such an occasion! :)

Meanwhile, this week I realized that FRI is not going to lose me, learnt about youth voices from 4 countries, spent a lovely evening in the establishment where 'money is made', travelled to 7 countries in one evening and started my new detective life-page :) Interested? Enjoy reading!

This week I celebrated first Skype-B'Day - not mine, my father's. I think this week is worth being named after this special occasion! Also, I started my polish filmmaking, unexpectedly met my old friend, started (and seems to me finished) Free November and many more. Read about all these life events below.

Hi, my name is Iryna. I am from Kharkiv, the city in the Eastern part of Ukraine. Now I am an EVS volunteer at Leaders of Change Foundation (Warsaw, Poland).

From November 14 till November 16, I was visiting a beautiful Polish city - Poznań. I encourage you to become my eyes and have a look at the city of Poznań through this short video ''Poznań 2018".

This week was so rich and contained so many interesting things that I can hardly describe all of them! Almost all the week I spent in Poznań with The Lane Kirkland Scholarship Program group, so let this week be named Out of Routine or Poznań, you stole my heart!

These days are white and red in Warsaw and Poland because the country is celebrating Independence Day. Moreover, this year there is an anniversary here - 100 years of regaining independence! So many times of efforts, fight and decisions. Congratulations, Poland! May you flourish even more!
