I am officially going to Tibet

So here I am... It is almost midnight in Romania and I can't wake up from a 3 year old dream I have.

In 2012 I signed up for Jewish Studies program at the University of Bucharest. I didn't know at the time what to expect from this program and that this would've been the best decision ever made.

I wanted to sign up for something different. I wanted to study a not so well known language. I wanted to fulfill my professors request, even if that meant to agree with something that I wouldn't have ever agreed with.

It was not the case. The professors are very young and very smart and don't impose themselves to students.We have our own opinions about Judaism, history and stuff and they agree with us. Our conversations in class were free and everyone could participate.

We did lots and lots of Hebrew (modern Hebrew, Biblical Hebrew, verb stems, tenses etc. - I mean lots of it), interpretation, literature, history and archaeology etc. It was the best time I had in my life.

If I were to decide again if whether sign up again or not, I would do it again. This awesome it was!

I promised myself if I were to pass my final thesis and get a grade of 10 (the equivalent of grade "A" in Romania), I would go to Tibet.

The thing is that at one point I was praying that I wouldn't get the 10. I didn't want to go to Tibet because of my financial situation. But then I remembered I never mentioned when I would go to Tibet or if "Tibet" signified a country, a restaurant, a hotel, or spa.

But I worked so hard in these 3 years to achieve my goal. I worked part time and full time to be independent in Bucharest and I could get the best grades. I WILL GO TO TIBET! AND I WILL GO TO THE COUNTRY TIBET.

And here are my savings. I hope the jar will fill up until the next year.

My Tibet savings jar and my graduation cap. In the background there are Ken Follett's "The Fall of Giants" and "World without End", George R.R. Martin's "Game of Thrones: A Song of Fire and Ice" saga,
"The Dead Sea Scrolls", "The Book of Enoch", "The Second Book of Enoch" and Andrei Pleşu's "About angels".
