Easy Chocolate Souffle

easy_chocolate_souffle (4 of 4)

Chocolate soufflé – the one dessert I always wanted to try out, but heard so many times how hard it is to bake it. I didn’t want to fail and end up spending one hour to clean the oven :D. Well, I made the notorious chocolate soufflé for the third time yesterday. I’m definitely not a soufflé professional, but now I have a simple recipe. Yes, I failed once, when I was trying to get the perfect amount of ingredients for two or a small group of friends 😀 But now, I have a simple recipe, inspired by the one on this page (and probably many other recipes I found while searching for the easiest one:)). My version is for 2-3 people (or just for one, depending on how hungry you are:)). And it’s really simple, no special ingredients, the hardest part is separating egg whites and yolks :). All you need is:

 2 eggs
75g of dark chocolate
50g of butter
50g of caster sugar
40g of flour

Ballerina? No. Dancer? Always.

DSC_1127-16 copy - Copy

One more post full of beautiful photos by Hristina Trajkoska. This time, I’m wearing my ballet shoes, so it won’t be a classical outfit post, but more of a ”thank you” post, dedicated to all those years of dancing. I’ve never really been good at most of the sports – I liked them, I just wasn’t s good as I wanted to be…I was never the athletic type I guess:). With dancing, it was so different – I loved it, I understood it, I was also quite good at it. So it was a sport that’s stayed me through all the years, it’s been the escape during the exams, it’s been the thing that makes a bad day good. My relationship to sports changed in the last years, as there was no pressure – I didn’t worry about the bad grade at volleyball, I didn’t feel pressured to run a kilometer in a few minutes. I just started doing the things I liked and I found out why was dancing so important to me – I never felt the pressure, I just did it. When I started, there were no grades, and when the time for the competitions and performances came, I didn’t care. I loved it. There were some nervous feelings, but they couldn’t stop me from doing what I love. I haven’t thought of dancing professionally since I was ten, but it’s more than a hobby. It’s just who I am.

Getting rid of stage fright

stage fright

For a person, who has performed on stage many times in her life, I often feel nervous before stepping on the stage. Like really nervous, even though I have a background in dancing. The biggest problem for me is talking – even when I have a presentation at college in front of 5 people, I feel more nervous than when I dance in front of a full theater. I think that’s because I’m not used to situations like that and I become really aware of my voice in that moment (which sometimes leads to a shaky voice and too much concentration on the structure of the sentences, which were perfectly fine in the beginning:)). New situations also make me feel nervous. At the beginning of the year, I had my first solo performance in Mademoiselle pole dance studio, and even though the show was opened only for the dancers and almost all of us were performing in groups that night, I hadn’t felt so nervous in a while. But on the other hand, it was something I wanted to do ever since I started pole dancing, and it the end, it didn’t turned out the way I wanted to, but it still turned out good and I got a lot of compliments…so all in all, I was happy I decided to perform and will do more of similar things in the future:).

I decided to write about the stage fright and that nervous feeling because I’ve been stepping out of my comfort zone a lot lately. Life doesn’t last forever and there’s so much things I want to experience…so I faced my nervous side with a question: What’s the worse that could happen?

My favourite cafés in Ljubljana

best cafe ljubljana.jpg

This will be one of those less text, more photos post, because I think the photos will speak for themselves. You’ve probably learnt by now that I’m a huge coffee lover (I’m writing this post while drinking a cup of it:)). I mostly drink my coffee at home, in the morning (or in the afternoon:D)) but when I go to a café, I want it all. Great atmosphere, delicious coffee, cozy seats, nice staff and always – great company.

Danes je čas za manj teksta in več fotk, ker bodo te povedala več. Najbrž že veste, da obožujem kavo in tudi to objavo pišem med pitjem prve skodelice kave danes. Največ je spijem doma, zjutraj in včasih tudi popoldne, a ko se odpravim nekam ven na kavo, hočem vse. Luštno atmosfero, super kavo, udobne stole, prijazno osebje, pa še fajn družbo.

Under a lot of stress?

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Yesterday, I  left two of my three student jobs, because everything was slowly becoming a bit too much to handle and I decided to keep the one that is the most connected with my studies and where I could work enough to get me through the month. One of the main reasons is that I had zero time to work on my thesis, and since I have no desire to spend three years writing it, I had to kick myself in the ass and get to work. For the last few months, I felt like I have to all of the things at once and when I wanted to take some time for myself, I always felt a bit guilty when I saw all of the work waiting for me. So guess what happened last week? I got sick and definitely didn’t get better with working everyday. For the first time in ages, I had zero appetite and I could sleep all the time. My body wanted a time to rest and now I see I have to spend some time at home, in bed, to get better. Our bodies will tell us when they need a break, we just have to learn how to listen to them. That’s something I’ll have to work on:)

New Year’s Resolutions

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

I don’t really know if that is the right title, but yeah, I’ll kind of talk about new year resolutions. I hope I am not too late, but I really wanted to take the holidays off :D. Towards the end of the year I realized that I’ve come to the most stable point in my life. Somehow all of the pieces came together, I feel like I’ve developed as a person the most in the last few years, I faced my old problems and left them behind, I’ve become more ambitious, creative and motivated. I’ve left some old dreams behind, not because I would feel like I can’t accomplish them, not because they would scare me. I just woke up and saw that they weren’t really my dreams, but a combination of something I thought I should be. I think I could say I went back to my childhood dreams, free from any outside effect. With much more experience, knowledge and motivation. I was always a bit afraid of my creative side, because I was scared I wasn’t talented enough. I was always my worst critic, just looking for the mistakes and not looking at the big picture. In the past year, that has also changed a lot. And now, I’ll have to wait work and see what can happen.
