Lifeguard Training. Day 3

First stage completed! I passed my lifeguard test. Exhausted, but happy. Now the only thing left is to finish my training at the lifeguard camp at the end of May. Well, not the only thing of course. I need to get a visa, buy tickets and all that kind of stuff... Oh, that's going to be a very busy spring...

World Theater Day!

On the March 27 is the World Theater Day!
In my family it is a very important holiday. My parents run a theater, so I've been in this atmosphere since childhood - theater is my home and our theater crew is my second (and first :) family. When I was in high school, I helped my parents in the theater a lot and today I'm in our University drama club myself! I don't think I'm going to choose it as my future profession, but as a hobby I enjoy it a lot. 

So happy Theater Day!

Lifeguard training. Day 2

Hard day. We did more training, but the rescuing techniques become more and more difficult. Today we used a back board and were taught how a lifeguard should response when the guest in distress has a neck or spinal injury. Oh, I hope I won't mix up anything. Also we were shown how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (I've never imagined I'm going to to anything like that!) Tomorrow we have the final test, so the rest of the day I'm going to study the material.
Oh, and there is one funny thing I've noticed - sometimes I tend to behave like a real teacher (which I actually my major in the University - English teacher :)
Our instructors were testing our English knowledge today, so we had to read some lifeguard-related sentences in English. Oh, I got a headache from all those Russian "r"-s and "th"-s! =) I was about to start making corrections (just like on our phonetics classes) Yes, I'm horrid. I guess I need to take it easy :)

Lifeguard training. Day 1

Yes, I'm through the first day of my lifeguard training. I'm a bit worn-out but with a touch of happiness. Actually it was much more interesting than I expected. And the swimming test wasn't that hard - we had to swim across the swimming pool, then reach the bottom of the pool and finally float for one minute not using your hard. Likely I passed everything (as usual I was underestimate my abilities and exaggerating the difficulty of the task). The we were shown several rescuing techniques and then listening to some theoretical material (also with some practice). Now I know what to do if somebody is choking and stuff like that. So actually it is very interesting and useful. Also we have very fun instructors and there are quite funny guys in my lifeguard group. So, I should say that I like it a lot! And I have two more days to go)))

Get ready for summer!

Tomorrow is the first day of my lifeguard training. I'm planning to work as a lifeguard in the swimming pool this summer, so I need to complete this training. I'm quite nervous. I guess I'll have to pass some kind of exam or something like that... and listen to a small course of lectures. I just hope everything will go smoothly. And then - hello summer! :)

I love life

I saw a butterfly yesterday.
A tiny beautiful creature.
It was like pure joy against the grayish and brownish background.
I'm happy that spring is here.

Proud to be a donor.

Finally, I was able to make my second blood donation yesterday. I made my first blood donation in June 2010. I've made several attempts after that but unfortunately I got rejections due to the low haemoglobin level in my blood. So I started to get ready for my next donation. I was taking vitamins rich in iron and keeping a diet, which consisted of "red" products. And finally my haemoglobin level was hight enough and I was able to make a donation! I should say that being a donor is one of the most positive experiences in my life. In my childhood I was afraid of injections and syringes but this is a completely different thing. I have such an emotional rise! And the more I hear about the recent events that happen very close to us the more keenly I feel the importance of such things. I feel like it can really make a difference.

Dreams coming true!

Here is some great news concerning our Etsy shop. We are almost for 2 years on Etsy and we are so glad we are able to share our work with others, because the world of felting is very diverse and beautiful! In our shop we have mostly accessories but something we really wanted to try to do was clothes! It was both our plan and our dream :) We worked really hard to make that happen... and finally... our first dress! yay!

Already in the shop! I hope you'll enjoy it!

Things I (люблю) Thursday

May be I should rename the section? Things I love Friday? =) I keep missing Thursdays because of the rehearsals we have on these days. 
But, anyway, here it is!

I (люблю) healthy eating!

OK, I decided to make some life-style changes. No more junk food, no more "bites"! I vote for healthy eating! I've been reading Sheena's blog for a while now and when "the big change" posts appeared there and got pretty inspired! I'll start with the little healthy things and I hope I'll be able to keep going :)

I (люблю) waking up with sunshine!

Yes! Not with the alarm clock, but with sunshine! The sunbeams are "playing" in your eyelashes, you can feel the mere warmth of the morning sun... It feels like it's going to be a good day!

I (люблю) book weekends!

Because of the holidays we had a veeeery long weekend. Likely, I've spend it quite productive! I was reading - and it was so natural, so nice... I loved it :)

Women's Day in Russia!

Congratulations, ladies!
It's international women's day today! International Women's Day is celebrated every year in Russia on March 8. In Russia, it is one of the most romantic holidays similar to a combination of Valentine's Day and Mother's Day. This is a perfect day to celebrate women's wisdom, beauty, patience and unconditional love. This is a day when all women, without any exception, are showered with attention, presents, admiration and praise.
So I'm wishing you all the best, beautiful ladies!

Don't you just love being a girl? ;)
I do!
There are so many advantages!

1. You can be emotional!

2. Shopping! Shopping! Shopping! Skirts, trousers, dresses, shirts, suits, cardigans…the list is endless...

3. There are times when chocolate really can solve all your problems :)

4. A girl can get what she wants by just flirting a little...)

5. A new lipstick or a new haircut gives you a whole new lease on life.

And what do you think? Why it is great to be a girl?
