but you are the only exception


I work in an elementary school and yesterday I was walking a kindergartener to his class but he wouldn’t stop crying and I asked him what was wrong and he said, “I need to call my grandma because I forgot to tell her that I love her.”

I hate when people say money doesn’t buy you happiness. it does. it buys you financial stability, a nice house, nice cars, nice vacations and trips, healthier food, a better education, etc. like wearing burberry while driving around in an audi would probably make me pretty happy too. but it’s just that rich people often take their comfortable lives for granted and end up being spoiled and ungrateful for what they have 

(not that I am rich or anything) but this is why I often pinch myself hard to remind myself to be very very grateful for a nice roof over my head, family members to laugh alongside with, friends to connect with, great food to feast my stomach with, amazing teachers to fill my brain with knowledge and just a sufficiently comfortable life. I know and wholeheartedly believe in the saying that looking at someone else’s plight does not make you feel better about yourself, but sometimes, thinking along that line puts a lot of important things to perspective

One of the things that is really notable about Moscow and yet not many people outside Russia know about, is how gorgeous the Moscow metro is.

These photos? That’s what the metro stations look like.


They’re called the “People’s palaces of Moscow” or else “Underground palaces,” and they were built during the Soviet era on the Communist idea that art and beauty should belong to the people rather than only being available in the houses of nobles.

These photos show just some of the metro’s attractions. There are many more mosaics, statues, etc, placed throughout.

And the metro is always this clean.

In addition to being beautiful, it is incredibly functional. It gets you pretty much everywhere in Moscow, and the trains run at intervals of every three minutes or less. At peak times, they run every 90 seconds. You never have to worry about missing a train, because the next one will come almost immediately.

Not always of course. In the late evening or early morning hours, you may have to wait as long as five whole minutes for a train. They’re also super easy to navigate.

We Russians are pretty proud of our metro system.
