Toska - noun /ˈtō-skə/ - Russian word roughly translated as sadness, melancholia, lugubriousness.

"No single word in English renders all the shades of toska. At its deepest and most painful, it is a sensation of great spiritual anguish, often without any specific cause. At less morbid levels it is a dull ache of the soul, a longing with nothing to long for, a sick pining, a vague restlessness, mental throes, yearning. In particular cases it may be the desire for somebody of something specific, nostalgia, love-sickness. At the lowest level it grades into ennui, boredom.”

― Vladimir Nabokov

Toska is an Albanian girl who is funny, loud but a bit odd. She is fun to hang out with but can be very stubborn at times. Toska loves to party, but she's also a nerd. During the day you’ll probably find her in the library and during the night she’ll be the life of the party at your local club.
"She's so fun"
"Yeah, that's Toska"
