Choose Nature – Romania’s afforestation

The easiest way to contribute to Romania’s afforestation

Every minute, huge areas of forests disappear worldwide. That’s about 48 football fields. In the best case scenario, in those deforested areas, other seedlings are being planted, which will form a new forest in 2-25 years. Unfortunately, the afforestation rate is far too small compared to irrational deforestation, and if we want our grandchildren to breathe fresh air, we need to mobilize and contribute in a sustainable way to the planting of new forests. How can you contribute to Romania’s afforestation? Nooc, the first Romanian manufacturer of genuine wood cases for smartphones, will start regular afforestation actions at the end of each batch of cases sold. The nooc.ro online platform was launched on April 15th, and the afforestation action will take place when the first stock is exhausted. In collaboration with the Forestry Authority Suceava, the plantation of seedlings will be held in the region of Pojorâta, Suceava.

 

What are Natural Wood Cases – For smart. Choose Nature

Now you have a natural and ultramodern alternative to personalize your phone and, and why not, to highlight your own personality. If you want a luxurious and unique accessory for your smartphone, Nooc is the best solution. The wood case is functionally similar to the PVC case, as it protects your phone from dirt and scratches. From an aesthetic point of view, however, the natural wood case gives your phone an original, unique, authentic and luxurious look. As there are no two people with identical fingerprints, there are no two Nooc wooden cases that look the same. Each case has a unique look, thanks to the natural mixture of shades of the wood. Time leaves a mark on wine, but so does it when you touch the wooden case. The more you use it, the more you enhance the shades of wood and you will polish its finish.
“The ideas of ​​making wooden cases for smartphones came easily when I saw that phone cases are losing their appeal in time and are becoming flashier. Preparing the design, the plans, testing and accessing the equipment used for the wood preparation is the big challenge. We use high quality wood, all from Romania. Our logo: proudly made in Romania! As I started working with wood and discovering its secrets, I realized that no plastic will ever be able to replace the authenticity and elegance of this noble material. But for that, we have to respect more the Nature and give back a small part of what it offers: the forest. ”                      

Laurenţiu Galan, CEO Nooc Romania.

Wireless connection with Nature

Ever questioned why
Famine and poverty exist among us?      
If I was to guess …
Humans like to comply.

                                                                
What if,
instead of living in obedience,
we could become an army  
Of free thinkers?

Stop and reflect for a while
about the Earth, its woodlands,
deep oceans and the navy sky
that makes us smile …

And
What if
we join Nooc’s playground?
With a common goal in mind
Nurturing Woody’s land.

Only.One.Way

Hello my dear readers,

I’m back. I haven’t posted anything for a long time because I’ve been so busy with work, personal projects and social life. One of my objectives for this year is to write a Marketing Blog; I have already written some things and I just need some help with the IT part – coding, domain, creating a nice website. If you know someone who can give me some advice on how to make it happen, drop me a message. Thankss :*

Here are some updates on what I have been doing lately:

  • Someone who likes to read my blog asked me the other day why do I write so much about flirting, relationships, love and family.

My answer is:

‘Because I care’. That’s the truth. Because whenever I find inspiration and love in someone or/and something, I just think about how can I use it to create something beautiful.  Practically, I have never sat down and thought about my next topics, about what else I could write about. The topics have chosen me :)) But his question made me think …

I guess it is because I like to write it down. Also, as a 20-something years old girl, flirting and love are part of my life and I like to share my worst and best experiences with other young people like me.

But, let’s dig further than that. I cannot say I am a relationships expert or anything like that, but what I’ve noticed is that our generation is sh*t at keeping a love relationship alive and, most of all, we are really bad at expressing our feelings. Just draw a comparison between us and our parents. They used to fall in love and form a family at a very young age; my mother got married at 22 and had three kids by 30. We, the 90’s generation, don’t like to make plans in advance without knowing all the issues that might arise along the way and we don’t like to rush things. We think about marriage only when we know for sure we are about to marry a wonderful person who understands and completes us. And the truth is: it’s not our fault and it’s not our parents’ fault. We grew up when technology was at its boom. I was born a few years after the communism ended. We have been taught to concentrate on our careers, to pursue higher education. Do you know how hard it is to have a family and raise a child while taking your final exams?

For some, all this might seem wrong or upsetting but, is it that bad to focus on career first and then family? What I know for sure is that I want to give my future kids everything they need, food, clothes and love. And it all comes down to money.

What I am actually concerned about is future generations. What about them? Will they ever get to know the complex notions of love and family?

I appreciate any kind of feedback and I love it when others share their knowledge with me. So, feel free to start a conversation with me about this topic.

  • Quotes of the day:

“I am not easy to be understood. I’ve spent years trying to understand myself and to love myself. So, I don’t have the patience to explain myself to anyone anymore. As someone once told me – some people get you from the first time they look at you and others can’t figure you out no matter how many conversations you have.  You either get me, or you don’t. I will know you are ‘the one’ when you’ve seen the ugly parts of me and you’re staying. Don’t think you know my next move…because you don’t.” (Ioana S.)

People always say, “Don’t let other people determine your happiness.” How can you be expected to do that when so much of your happiness comes from the people around you? What is your contentment if not for those connections and those shared moments? (Elite daily)

  • Scrisori de dragoste:

“Draga Radu,

Te-aș aprecia mult mai tare dacă ai avea curajul să îmi spui lucrurile acestea în față. Nu te teme. Nu mai sunt atat de fragilă pe cât credeai tu. Mă descurc, am să trec și peste asta cu bine. Nu e o mare tragedie. Toți băieții se mai uită după o fată, două, trei … mai întorc capul pe stradă după o blondă frumușică cu ochi albaștri; asta în timp ce acasă, poate îi așteaptă ‘femeia perfectă’. Am întâlnit multe specimene care fac parte din această categorie. Din păcate, ei nu se vor putea numi niciodată bărbați; nu cred că înțeleg prea bine această noțiune. Trist dar adevarat.

Îți doresc multă fericire alături de ‘păpuși’!

Cu dezamăgire,

Ioana S.

 

P.S.

This is all for tonight! Going to listen to some nice music, take a warm bath and drink a glass of red wine. 

Good night! Kisses :* xxx

Words

communication

Have you ever wished you’ve never sent that text? Have you ever regretted saying something that shouldn’t have been said?

I know I do. Sometimes I find myself guilty of repeating the same mistakes, over and over again.

I must say I hate texting. Not sure where I stand with phone conversations yet. Having a face-to-face conversation with your friend, lover or even with a stranger, is a much more pleasant and rewarding experience.

A ‘real conversation’ gives you an insight into what the other person might be feeling. It creates strong connections. It builds friendships and fixes broken bonds. Texts only makes you miscommunicate how you feel and misinterpret what other people mean.

I absolutely love and agree with Charles Dickens:

Electric communication will never be a substitute for the face of someone who with their soul encourages another person to be brave and true.

My London experience

My first time in London was, as a matter a fact, my first time visiting a foreign country. I still remember the overwhelming emotions and the nice and helpful people I came into contact. It’s all coming back to me now. I recall it like it was yesterday. Here I was, a 19 years old frightened girl in a strange and scary big city. Days have past and, I slowly started loving London to the point that I could never leave it behind.

Starting university in London was a last-minute decision, influenced mainly by my parents, who didn’t see a future for me in my home country. Thank you mom and dad for convincing me, even though it must have been hard for you to see you oldest daughter making a life for herself among strangers. However, most of the times we’ve talked on Skype you could tell I was satisfied with the city that adopted me. I made friends for life in here, I’ve studied hard and graduated with a good grade, I have worked part-time because I knew it will be an incredible financial sacrifice for you to support me here. You see, I love London so much now that I will carry on with my studies right here, I’ll do something different but somehow connected to my degree. Most things in life are connected, you just need to see the bigger picture.

I’m writing this for those of you who are at a turning point in life, those who have to make a big decision that’s gonna impact your life from now on. I’m also hoping my little sisters will read this and start believing in themselves a bit more. I know how important and helpful it is to have someone you could ask about the student life in London. I am just returning a favor; I also had my ‘mentors’ who helped me embrace this new experience. Another reason behind sharing my experience with you is to demonstrate everything is possible if you believe in yourself, if you follow your dreams no matter what life might throw at you.

The beginning is always hard but, it’s all worth it in the end. I look at all my friends I made here and I can see them happy. We have not accomplished all our dreams yet, but I believe we are on the right track. I was alone when I started my university journey. On the way, strangers joined me and I joined them. Now, I have a feeling that these people who once were strangers, will become friends for life.

I have a brilliant life now and I am grateful for that every single day. I am pleased with my family because they never gave up on me, even in my most stubborn moments. I am happy with my old and new friends because we support each other no matter the situation. In good or bad times we would always be there for each other, in any way we can. I am lucky I had the opportunity to study in a big capital, one that broadened my horizons and taught me to look at things from many different perspectives before making the right decision. Obviously, my London experience included a few tough times. But, as I said before, my stubbornness and determination helped me overcome them. Always think about your family and the sacrifices they made for you to be where you are now and, everything is going to turn out just fine.

For you, I can only hope the best in everything you’ll try to achieve. Good luck and remember to stay strong because it’s not going to be an easy journey at all. Joan River, an American actress, comedian and writer, once said:

Part of my act is meant to shake you up. It looks like I’m being funny, but I’m reminding you of other things. Life is tough, darling. Life is hard. And we better laugh at everything; otherwise, we’re going down the tube.

* Listen to this song to remind you about the beauty of life. 

Reborn 

I’ve seen it in your eyes 
I’ve seen the pain, the lies.
I felt it in your arms
I felt mine and your scars.
 
Someone else had your heart 
And, then, torn it apart.
You’ve decided to play smart,
And fool around with an artificial heart. 
 
I’ve been hurt as well
And I’ve hurt in return,
But I want to get out of this shell 
I can fight and then, reborn.
 
I will give you all my love,
I can make you feel again
But, I can’t be your dove,
I can’t promise no pain.
 
We could take the given chance,
Look each other in the eyes and dance 
Or, we could say goodbye 
But, that will be just a lie.
