HAIKU 366 de zile / 366 days / 366 jours / 三百六十六日 san byaku roku juu roku nichi

Welcome to my blog! 
I am Steliana Cristina Voicu and I am from Ploieşti, Romania.

In 2010 I graduated as Bachelor of Economics from Petroleum-Gaz University of Ploieşti, Romania, Field of Study: Economic Cybernetics, Statistics and Informatics. In 2012 I received my Master diploma in Business Suport Databases from the same institution.

I love Japan’s culture and people and I do my best to learn the beautiful japanese language.
This blog was created because of my love for Haiku. I wanted to illustrate every day of the year into one haiku, which is why my blog is called "366 days".

I also love photography and painting. The first allows me to capture memories of a moment, the second allows me to place them on canvas. The photograph is a replica of a real landscape, while painting let me give it a personal touch, and in the same time it gives me the opportunity to share with others the world through my eyes.

My poetry and short prose have been awarded at various Romanian contests and have been published in various anthologies and publications.
