True Balloon

My name is Iva, and I am Bulgarian. I live in the U.S.



Today I saw the single most shocking thing I have seen in my entire life

"Whenever you’re going through a bad day just remember, your track record for getting through bad days, so far, is 100%; and that’s pretty damn good."

Western City Gate, Belgrade, Serbia. 

Such an excellent example of Brutalist architecture. Absolutely love it.

I actually screamed when I saw this. I have all these confusing feelings and questions about communism and post-communism in Bulgaria, and this! An ethnography about specifically that!!! I can’t wait!
