About me

Hi! I am Asta! I am a philologist and a philocalist to the heart's core. Here I share things that I consider being aesthetic and fantastic!

In my 33 years of existence, I would have never imagined that I'll write about war. But here we are. Day 6 of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. No, this is not a "conflict", "issue", or some sort of "special operation", this is a full fledged WAR that is costing human lives as I am writing these lines. Because I know that large part of my readers are from Russia, I decided to translate this post to Russian as well, via DeepL, as the level of my Russian is less than mediocre. So, my dear readers, let's talk about war that was never supposed to happen.


За 33 года своего существования я никогда бы не подумала, что буду писать о войне. Но вот мы здесь. Шестой день российского вторжения в Украину. Нет, это не "конфликт", не "проблема", не какая-то "спецоперация", это полноценная война, которая стоит человеческих жизней, пока я пишу эти строки. Поскольку я знаю, что большая часть моих читателей из России, я решила перевести этот пост и на русский язык, через DeepL, так как уровень моего русского далеко не посредственный. Итак, мои дорогие читатели, давайте поговорим о войне, которой никогда не должно было быть.
