  • Skins Summer Holiday - a review

    A week ago I eventually had an opportunity to read, for the first time, second Skins novel called Summer Holiday. Despite not that original title the novel was supposed to revealed some unknown (yet anticipated) details about characters of the third generation of “the E4 cult TV series”, as claims cover description.

  • Venus & Jupiter conjunction

    In the last few days we had a chance (and still have) to observe one of the most interesting astronomical phenomena of 2015: a conjunction of Venus and Jupiter.

  • Skins generation 3 - first impression

    When you are in your mid-twenties, there aren’t many things you can do for the first time in your life (except of getting a mortgage loan, perhaps). Usually you already have pretty vast experience of various situations, people and emotions and maybe even start to think (with arrogance typical for fairly young people) that nothing is able to surprise you or extract from you feelings you haven’t felt so far. In the end twenty-few years should be enough to get to know yourself in almost every possible way, shouldn’t it? Well, it’s just rubbish.
