Nationals,5 more rounds

     Here I am ,in Calimanesti,Romania,playing the Nationals U20,girls.There are 6 participants,so we play 10 rounds (yeah... a lot of games...) with 3 double rounds and no rest days.It is a tough schedule,but I'm doing pretty well.I have 4p out of 5 (with a stupid loss in the first round,blunders can happen). You can follow the results here:

    Calimanesti is a beautiful place,surrounded by mountains,with many monasteries. As far,we were not so lucky with the weather,it's raining almost every day...but it doesn't stop us from being in a great mood :) We (and by we I mean : my sister,Roxana,Ioana and Georgiana and me) went to a short trip to the Cozia monastery. Of course,it rained :D Here are some blurry pictures :D
     My round will start at 4 pm today,I've already prepaired,ready to give a fight! :)
    I'll keep you updated with the results and news :)

Nationals coming up!

    I haven't updated my blog for a bit and I can't find any worthy excuses. I guess there were just too much things happening (even though it sounds like a cliche).
    I'm going to leave for the National Junior Championship in 2 days,so keep your fingers crossed for me!But I'm really looking forward for the European Women Chess Championship! I don't have big expectations from Tbilisi,but I just hope it will be nicer than the last time I was in Georgia (in 2006).
    Unless I will find any entertaining subject to talk about,let's speak about weather! :D It was a joke (lol)
    I had a lot of  'routine' stuff to do lately,like going to school, practicing chess,hanging between Iasi and Chisinau...So, a little competition spirit is welcomed!
   My fingers don't obey to me anylonger,so I guess I'll just take some sleep, dreaming about summer... (indeed-where the hell it is?????) :)))))
