В училище не бях фен на философията поради две прости причини:
– учителката не ми се кефеше много и винаги ме режеше, дори да създам някакъв гениален текст, коментар и пр.
– счупих си крака заради един доклад, за който бързах да посетя библиотеката точно на разпети петък отново по философия!!!
Но пък точно по времето на тези уроци научих: „Що е то херменевтика?“ (нали така започваха уроците в 3 клас?). Има много определения във философските речници, в wikipedia и т.н., но аз въпреки старинното му разбиране имам своя интерпретация. Когато по-усилено започнах да пиша за себе си и за удоволствие, осъзнах нещо доста стандартно. Когато ми се пише, пиша. Когато имам задание да го направя не винаги имам възможността да дам максимума от себе си. Това е причината да използвам един хитър ход. Оказа се, че съм дори добра в това 🙂
Та ето тук отново се намесва херменевтиката. Използвам своя капацитет и наличието на информация. Нещо доста ценно в днешно време. Използвам капацитета си, за да създам симпатична структура спрямо това, което ме интересува. От там насетне нагласям разменям и copy/paste. Много хора биха ме обвинили, биха казали, че това не е творчество, че това не е стил. Но аз не съм на това мнение. Открих, че ме бива това и искам да споделя с Вас и последното си творение по въпроса.
Нещо полезно за привлечените от България хора, които искат да получат повече информация, какво би ги очаквало. Не е с ПР насоченост, няма политически нотки, не е и негативно. Все пак, ако някой иска да види хубавите страни на страната и столицата ни, това е нещото, което може да го привлече 😉

Sofia is a city that truly comes alive at night.

Around midnight the bars start to empty out as Sofia’s nightowls begin to make their way to some of the city’s pulsating nightspots. Caramba is a must for lovers of latin music, whilst techno heads will enjoy raving it up at the vast Exit club or the hip Scream club.
