This is a personal blog but my interests include politics, history, and Russia. Five years ago, I had to write a thesis on Joseph Stalin which launched my fascination with Soviet history, the Cold War and, eventually, Russia entirely. I spend my time studying the language, history, and culture of the Russian Federation!
To the right, you'll find more direct links to my posts about Россия, the USSR, my not-so-recent trip to Russia, and the Russian politics 'fandom.' Feel free to click on those or send me a message!
Аноним сказал: What is a fandom?
Imagine that girl in elementary school that never stopped talking about horses in a class with 1700 other girls who are obsessed with horses in a class about horses
When you tell your close friend or significant other that they should replace you with someone better I want you to know that you cannot be replaced. People don’t spring out of nowhere to befriend or date others. Relationships take time and shared experiences and that time and those experiences can never truly be recreated, new friendships and relationships will never have those moments.
i hate when people call their grandparents weird names instead of grandma and grandpa like babooshka or salami
in the weird ass country where people call their grandmothers “babooshka” we have a timeless saying that we tell to people like you, it is called “иди в жопу” and i think that’s beautiful :)
