About Me




We're a couple, met in college and after some time we decided to transform Jelena's CS profile into ours.

Vjeran - future historian with lots of interests in literature, poetry, cinematography, music and art in general. Loves hugging. Not too easy to talk to but very good listener. And best company for Jelena.
Jelena - quite easy to talk too; future art historian with a lots of interests in medieval art. Huge fan of European cinematography and classical music. And loves cleaning sinks.

both - it's easy to make us happy, just give us the bag of rice to put our hands into. Big fans of cooking and thinking of the new recipes and then sharing it with the others. Currently exploring Chinese food.


Four basic conditions of happiness are:
- life in the open air
- love of a human being
- detachment from any ambition
- the creation of a new Beauty
(Edgar Allan Poe)
