Studia – to już?

agubienie w tak nowym otoczeniu nie trwa zbyt długo, a nie ma nic bardziej ekscytującego jak rearanżacja swojej nowej przestrzeni czy poszukiwania nowej patelni ze znajomymi. Po zaledwie roku spędzonym na studiach z dwóch walizek zrobiły mi się dwie walizki i dziesięć dużych kartonów gotowych do wyprowadzki ze student halls do pierwszego wynajmowanego domu… Już nawet nie chcę myśleć o tym ile rzeczy miałam do przeniesienia z tego domu po ukończeniu licencjatu.

Considering the portrayal of beauty in the contemporary media we can easily spot one major problem. If someone is beautiful, the person, according to media, must be white.
