Për përkthimin në shqip, ju lutem vazhdoni më poshtë… If you are reading this, you probably are into reading. It’s not that important what you read as long as you do read…blog posts, essays and articles all suffice even if you don’t read books. But books, they’re superior.

Për përkthimin në shqip, ju lutem vazhdoni më poshtë… I want to start this blogpost with something my grandpa told me the other day. “Vesë, if I would’ve had your brain when I was your age, God knows what I could’ve done. But, let me tell you that I only knew how to use the […]

LEBANON, Tyre Pt. I

Për përkthimin në shqip, ju lutem vazhdoni më poshtë… Let me take you to the Middle East, Lebanon specifically. It is a post-war country, sharing borders with Israel –with whom Lebanon isn’t in friendly terms– and with Syria –a country yet at war. Nevertheless, it is a very beautiful and worth-visiting place. I had the […]

The importance of ‘documenting time passing’

I was fourteen in 2015 when I attended the final year of secondary school. That’s when I started to excessively read in English, kind of. I used to highlight 70% of the words as unfamiliar but I enjoyed doing that. That was also the time when I asked my mom to buy me a wreck […]

Are we ready to live from home? (the lock-down in Prishtina as a result of the corona virus outbreak)

Për përkthimin në shqip, ju lutem vazhdoni më poshtë… Let me make myself clear. I’m not encouraging anyone to go out, staying in is just a precaution for our own good. I’m just sharing my opinion on the fact that people will have to work from home, attend lectures from home, and basically do everything […]

Happy international women’s day! Now let’s go back to normal… (a blog about student restrooms)

Për përkthimin në shqip, ju lutem vazhdoni më poshtë I remember in my first year of studies, I used to spend the pauses between lectures reading at the library of the Faculty of Philology. The library was warm, the chairs were comfortable, the tables big enough and the restroom for the academic staff (which doesn’t […]

A short short story

I couldn’t come up with a title for this post, maybe because it’s different from the others. This is my attempt of writing a fictional short short story. I don’t drink coffee at home, I don’t know how to make it and I don’t bother learning because why do everything yourself? I drink it at […]

Earth Showers

Për përkthimin në shqip, ju lutem vazhdoni më poshtë I’ve been waiting for rain or snow showers about which I could write since November 2019. Today’s date is February 5, 2020 and only yesterday did we witness showers in Prishtinë. It did snow in December 1-2 times for an hour or so, but does that […]
