rzvn update

Alright. Let's just get to it, shall we?

I'm sick (nasty cold). My application for the master's programme was rejected because I arrived at the admission office one day too late. I hate myself and the people who made me wait for the language certificate. At the moment I'm trying to get better and looking for a cheap rent in Vienna (any ideas? leave them in the comments). Hopefully I'll find something soon. I feel I've taken advantage of my relatives long enough.

Also... I've started tutoring people who encounter problems with the English language and grammar. If anyone's interested in improving their English and learning the difference between responsable and responsible, e-mail me at Why you might think about improving your English?

Alright. Enough with the shameless promotion! What you should take away from this is that Razvan is going through some shitty times and hopes that less shitty times are to come somewhere in the future.

R over and out

TIFIOS cover

If you're not a vlogbrothers' fan or a nerdfighter (if you are not familiar with any of those two terms, there's this thing called Google... knock yourself out!), TIFIOS stands for 'The Fault in our Stars', the new novel of John Green. Here's John talking about the title of the book (and the epigraph of 'The Great Gatsby'):

And here's John talking about the the cover of the book:

And HERE is the yeti (John's wife) explaining why you should like the cover. I needed the explanation. It didn't make me love it, but I like it to some extent and understand why John loves it. Oh... I think John calls his wife 'the yeti' because she refuses to appear in any of his videos. We hint that she exists, but there is no available picture or footage of her. Yeah.. she's just like the Yeti.

I found way to order the book. The people at have it on their website. I'll stop by their shop in Landstra├če tomorrow to pre-order the book. The whole first printing is going to be autographed, so I really don't want to miss my chance. I haven't read anything by John Green, but I really like his vlogging style, so maybe I'll like his writing as well.

I also plan to do a few long exposures tomorrow. Hope it turns out okay (it depends very much on the weather and a few other things). Stay tuned.

Until next time,

time is fleeting

I got a set of filters for my camera and this is the first 'project' I got to use them on. 3 macro filters and one topaz skylight for 4 euros... not that's why I love flee markets. This is (as you can see) an 8-second exposure and the light source is a candle.

I kept postponing going out and shooting the city at night, as I work nights, but one of these days... 

Until then.. I'll keep having fun with the macro lens.
