Fixed Sign

Dear blog,
It's been a long time since I haven't shared a thing with you. Reasons? There's plenty of reasons. You know I never come up with decisions if I don't have some good reasons. I'm a fixed sign...I'm a Taurus and it's not that easy to handle that. Haven't posted a thing since January 27th and oh well, this explains a lot. But to be true to you and everyone who has followed "Circle of Kurisu" for years now, this period has been the hardest, the most tiring, the most difficult and at the same time, the most important and the best time of my life until now. It's not that I just couldn't find the time to take pictures and post here. Besides that, I have to say that I've had a lot of important stuff to do and to fix starting with my being. I've put myself in a mess of difficulties so I could prove my skills...So I could convince myself that I'm ready enough to make my dreams come true.
The best part is that I did it at some points. There was a period where I couldn't get up of my bed every damn morning. I became so depressed I have found myself crying everyday before starting my day. There was a lot of negative energy surrounding me and that all was because of the people who I had to work with or stay with...doesn't really matter. Have always kept in mind that everything happens for a reason and the reason was making me stronger...this time, as a professional one. Yes, I did it. I finished the Bachelor and made it to do a good job for my diploma project. It wasn't easy. It was very hard and I'm very sure that it became harder because of the selfish people affecting in everything without being required. I thank myself for trusting my intuition and the love in my heart for showing out the best of me, the real me.
At the last post I have mentioned that balance is the key and yeah I have practiced it a lot. So let me find the time to thank all of the people who believed and me and did their very best to calm my darkest days. Starting from my family who have always supported me...I say to you, this is only the beginning...Your daughter has way bigger plans and you know that! My friends, my biggest joy of my everyday life who always appreciated what I've done. Last but not least, got to thank my lover for wiping away my tears and pushing me to shine because he really saw my deepest wishes and darkest fears. Thank you for inspiring me!
Now I find myself at the most perfect place I could be. I appreciate everything surrounding me. I appreciate the tiring days, the lazy days, the worst nights and the worst rainy mornings. Because in the end, life is what you make it. No matter what happens, do the best you can and never give up. You will never know what happens next. There will be a lot of breakdowns everyday in your life starting from your house, to your school, the office you're working, everywhere. Friendly advice : Be positive and the most important, be yourself. Never be afraid to share your opinion, your feelings, your dreams. Think about your goal and work for it everyday. While you're doing your best, the whole universe is moving planets to make your dream come true. All you need to do is staying true to yourself and the ones you're dealing with.
Don't be a copy just because you might think it will be easier to handle life. You will never be really happy. Be you and fight all of the battles because only that will set your soul free.
In case you're asking, I'm exactly where I wanted to be. Living with the people I love, having the job I always wished for and enjoying the sunsets to take some pictures. Being a designer nowadays is not easy too as long as we're conquered by commercialism and kitsch style, kitsch people...whatever. That's another story...
Soon you will find "Circle of Kurisu" in another dimension. Everything needs it's right time. Until then, enjoy the pictures. Thank you for your time!

B for Balance

Balance is the key to everything. What we do, think, say, eat, feel, they all require awareness and through this awareness we can grow. Lately I've realized that everything surrounding you is all under your control. Whatever you decide to do, remember that you either hold on to it or just let it go. We're the things we do, think, say, eat, feel, we're made of them and there's nothing that can control you as long they're you. It is you who has the power to control your mind, your dreams, desires, pleasures. Deal with them to become real. Learn to live between effort and surrender. Do yourself a favor and go under the risk. Find your limits and choose your destiny calculating your moments of activity, thoughts, expressions, moments, joy and sadness. I consider myself a bunch of conflicting statements but it feels so good to know.

"Psychedelic Lovers"

"Psychedelic Lovers" was not just a random event when you're invited by your friends on facebook just by chance. This was a music festival organised by someone who has tried anything on his own to bring the Psychedelic music and Psy culture in Albania. It's inspiring how much he loves this all he would do anything to make people realize what he wants to express by playing his music and feel the same way as he does. For him Psy trance is much more than just music. This event made me understand this even more!
Psy trance is a subgenre of trance music which was born long before synthesizers defined modern music. This music belonged to the free spirits, the hippies who moved in Goa, India for a better lifestyle where there were beaches, friendly people, low cost living, Indian religion and spiritual practices. Their freer living made them experience a lot and bring another point of view to the rest of the world where the main basics were : Love, Peace and Respect. 
This music has the power to make you dance as it is an active meditation when you go beyond your thoughts and imagination, beyond the person you think you are. You let your body free under the rhythm of music with layered melodies and high tempo riffs. This experiences open your mind to new challenges by giving you the right answers about your origins and where you actually belong. You start to value more the nature surrounding you cause it makes you feel wild, free and primitive so you realize the genesis of everything around. It's whole mission stands in finding your inner peace and making believe that you have the power to make anything happen. What made human race come until here after all when they were all alone in space and time? 

This guy toughed me well all of these even though I was aware of spiritual exercises and books. He's passion about this all made me get so involved I wanted to participate by giving a hand in designing the posters, tickets and handmade crafts used for decorations in such rave just like hippies used to do in their time. Phosphorescent colors are the main theme of decorations and special symbols related to Goa culture.

The party started from 5 Pm untill 11 in the morning when people where tired as hell by dancing and jumping and exchanging energies with all the power they could have. Everything went perfectly well it made me feel so proud about him. This was his 7th Psy festival in the history of Psy in Tirana and the first time for me. Believe it or not, it was the best night of my life!

"Le Petit France"

Hello everyone! Since I came back from my best holidays ever, I've had to deal with all the school projects I had to finish and so many other works to be done. So basically, I've been very busy to post on the blog but randomly I got reminded of some pictures I hadn't posted yet. Seems like I finally found some little time to introduce you with "Le Petit France" ! 
Petite France is a historical quarter of Strasbourg which used to be the home of city's tanners, millers and fishermen in Middle Ages. It is characterized by its canal system and half timbered buildings. Now it is one of the main tourist attractions. I totally fell in love with the colourful old buildings which mostly date from the 16th and 17th centuries.
This small town made me wonder a lot. I had this feeling like I was little too...Maybe just like the "Petit Prince" but not a prince.

Rooms full of Art.

One of the days of my sweet escape in France was dedicated to the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Strasbourg. This museum was founded in 1973 and opened in its own building in November 1998. This huge building hides inside a total of 18000 work of arts including paintings, sculptures, photographs, graphic arts, multimedia and design from the period of impressionism until nowadays. The building is designed by the Parisian architect Adrien Fainsilber and it's located at the edge of the old quarter of the city, called "Le Petit France" . It's minimalist interior is another good reason to visit this museum. It's design is light, airy which is very relaxing for the eye. There you can fin find permanent collections of the greatest artists such as : Picasso, Pissaro, Rodin, Braque, Kandinsky, Jean Arp from Strasbourg etc.

The bridge between me and everything...

Hello guys! I decided to write one next page from my traveling diary. This time I was visiting another city called Kehl in Germany. Kehl is in southern Germany located on the river Rhine opposite the city of Strasbourg, France. It is only one bridge away from one country to one another. Isn't it great? Things that make me think stuff like : Is that all there is? This simple?

Inspired by such places, the difference of weather and the envirement around had also made go deeply in my thoughts. Life is all about this huge bridges after all...You just have to be sure which one you choose to be happy. But first you need to pick some of them just by chance so you can try how it works and taste the feeling you get. By letting it flow naturally, you will finally know what it is hidden there, no matter what you have heard before. Go for it! Travel in time and space and explore. Grow differently everytime you have the chance. Find another perspective and walk through that damn bridge between you and everything. It is healthy for your mind!
