This is my student identity card for the 1947-1948 university year, when I was a 3rd-year student at the Faculty of Letters at the University of Bucharest.
After World War II I entered the Faculty of Letters in Bucharest, as I had relatives there - my mother's sister -, I could live with them. I attended the faculty from 1945 till 1949. I didn't actually live in Bucharest throughout the 4 years, I attended under the optional attendance system. I would stay there for 1-2 months at a time - I would take a leave of absence from work without pay. After I graduated the university I entered the educational system from where I retired as a teacher [of Romanian language and literature] in 1977. I enjoyed my work as a teacher. I wouldn't have chosen it, had I not liked it. There were even some discussions: some of my relatives wanted that, since I had acquainted myself with the work at the Courthouse, I should study Law. But I didn't want to. I chose what was to my liking.
