Hello to everybody. My name is Darina Solodova, I’m 23. I live in Kiev and study to become Master of Psychology. I work in my field.
Apart from work, I like photography and want to show you how I spent Thursday, November, 24th.
So, it’s morning and I want to sleep!
I can’t focus on my cellphone!
This is my bed. Near it, there is a Chinese variant of iPad to watch movies in the evenings.
It is located on the second floor… I’ll show you later on.
Those red and white clothes are handmade background for photographing. I’m very proud of them. As for the rest, I guess it’s clear.
This is a table where Saveliy and I work. Those curtains are a wardrobe.
This is the second floor I’ve told you about. My dad has made all that. Thank you, dad!
Sometimes it’s cold in the apartment and these Chinese shoes don’t let me get frozen.
This is the way I look in the morning.
Don’t worry. A shower usually helps.
I was very proud of myself when I found a shower curtain that matched the walls.
I woke up 15 minutes earlier to take pictures of different things important to me. This pillow was made of an old shirt I got at a flee market, this music is my present to Saveliy. As for the piano, it belonged to previous owners of the apartment but I liked it and decided to keep.
A basket for different things, an old clock and a suitcase with embroidery.
This is what I see when I come out to the balcony.
I got used to my neighbors!
Time for breakfast. Saveliy made an omelet with olives and sweet pepper, apples with cinnamon and green tea.
Saveliy gets down to work and I have to get dressed.
Saveliy offered me to bring me to the metro station to take some pictures of me. Good!
I do love Podol, the neighborhood where I live, because it looks like an old European town.
Heading to Kreshchatnik Street, the main street of Kiev.
I also like this arch and pipe.
My grandmother lives in this house on the fourth floor. And here I study. Very convenient.
‘Be quiet. Studying’.
This is ‘Nika’ Gestalt Psychology Center.
I was glad that I came earlier because I had some time to have my brows done.
My group-mates are coming up.
Half an hour later, we’re having a break and drink some tea with biscuits.
It’s one o’ckock and we have to go to another part of the city for our next class.
At some point, I got disappointed because the whole idea of taking photos seemed wrong to me. So my friends helped me to find some interesting places for photographing. The sign on the wall runs, “Pigeons”.
This inscription says, “You can think what you want”.
So, we’re at another side of the city. Luckily, I have just 6 more month to study like this, travelling back and forth in Kiev.
At this part of the city, it’s very spacious though.
We had snacks before the class.
I like the style my university made out in. Sort of futurism.
Talking with teachers…
In fact, it’s not that difficult as you may think.
It’s almost 4 p.m. and I keep on taking pictures.
Art Psychology. I usually draw at this class.
It’s already dark on the street.
I decided to go see my best friend. On the way.
15 more minutes of walking and I’ll be there!
This is my best friend Kolesya.
Over carrot cutlets, we discuss if we want to go to the yoga class tonight and frankly speaking, we don’t.
But we have to!
We talk about different things, including Kolesya’s plans to enter a European university and my plans to start making postcards.
I like how yoga guys decorated the room.
Kolesay’s warming up.
7.30 and I’m not going to take any photos in the next hour and a half.
I’m back home! So tired!
I remembered that I promised to myself to bring my bathroom into order. I like my bathroom because a lot of things there I made by myself (together with my dad). I also want to make a bookshelf there and I don’t think it’s going to offend books in any way.
I’m home and I can wash my make up off.
Then we had dinner, drank some tea, watched TV and I also worked for some time.
It’s 1.30 a.m.
I hardly managed to get to my bed before falling asleep.
