Looking for friends

My second best friend (first name on the list belongs eternally to my sweetheart), The Dictionary, says that
Critical mass is
the minimum amount of fissile material needed to maintain a nuclear chain reaction.
Or
the minimum size or amount of something required to start or maintain a venture.


If I had a chance to start a venture I would have launched into it with the greatest enthusiasm ever known. Unfortunately, it too late.
Mostly, because the venture (my blog in English) has been already started once. I can only keep going on with pestering people with my writing efforts. Sounds less encouraging, heh.

Ah, what does all that nonsense has to do with a critical mass that was presumably hit?
The answer is that I finally feel confident enough to write in English, ladies and gentlemen. The amount of scary strange words, treacherous phrases, overwhelming fears of making a mistake and other creepy insecurities has finally been reduced to tolerable level.
Critical mass of writer's confidence was finally hit.



You sure have figured out that I was joking talking about Oxford Dictionary being my second-best friend.
Despite the fact that I really like books, I prefer people.

I am 24, almost 25. Gosh, time flies!
I live in New York, USA, with my fiance.
Being originally from Russia I had been working for 5 years in newspapers of my home town before I moved to America.
I still write for Russian newspapers here, in NYC. This is my current part time job.
Besides that I do a lot of fun things. Such as learning Spanish, reading various literature (George Martin being my latest passion), cooking yummy meals and using any opportunity to travel locally and internationally.
I do sports, too. I have been really enjoying artistic gymnastics lately.

I am Catholic. My political views are very liberal.
I respect all religions and having no religion as well. My world doesn't have any borders.
I am straight, but respect all sexual orientations. To me freedom of conscience, freedom of speech and tolerance are the greatest values.

Sometimes I dress like a hippie and wander around NYC...



Hope to see you among my friends!
