Ready, steady, go 2014!

It’s been a hectic 2013 full of twists and turns for plenty people, including myself. Decisions were made and be they good or bad, they got us up to this point in time, where reflectin might be upon us in one way or another. I usually do lists and compare, since it’s the easiest thing to manage retroactively, but there’s some things you can’t refference as list items. Or at least you shouldn’t anyway. One of the reasons I’m telling you all of this is that I woke up today to come to terms with the best New Year’s Eve “marathon” I had in – well, let’s face it – a few years now… And I just wanted to put that out there…

For the record, I don’t regret 2013 for it has taught me plenty. I’ve learned that I’m worth the while and that I’ve become resilient enough to can carry my own weight and then some! I’ve grown aware of my own presence and potential. Maybe also bit smug, nonetheless, but that’s a bit of an overstatementand undercompensation, since there’s been plenty times where being the good guy ended up kicked back and recoiling in my own forehead (and disadvantage) most of the times… I’ve been shown alternatives, had my eyes open to various things and have learned the power and advantages of being able to exercise discipline. And most and foremost, I found that long lost balance between being there for others and being there for myself.

2014 started out great. The “marathon”, the people, the fun and the emotion… Just some of the things I’m keen on experiencing more over the course of this year… For the other things, I’ll be preparing a traditional list these days. Or a resolution, as some might call it… And I can already tell it’s going to have a bit of travelling in it. And for the other things, to be decided, still, so stay tuned! But what about you? Have you already decided what your plans are for this year? :)

Paradoxal vorbind…

Cel putin in ultimele doua zile, soselele timisorene s-au dovedit a fi mereu surprinzatoare. Si de cand se pare ca surprizele si paradoxurile se-aduna si se tin lant, nu m-ar mira maine sa vad ca dom’ Primar va vrea sa faca un mini-accelerator de particule sub soseaua de centura a orasului… Serios, oameni buni, se poate.

Ieri am vazut utilaj de deszapezit pe sosele. Interesanta chestie, ce sa zic? Iarna trecuta mi-am cumparat singur lopata si mi-am facut poteca cu bara fata de la masina… Si azi… Oooooh, mi s-a rasturnat lumea, ca sa spunem asa, cand am vazut ca imposibilul a fost facut posibil…

Am vazut un caz cronic de blonda platinata cu push-up-uri din buze pana-n tocuri facandu-si selfies cu un iPhone5 alb la semafor dintr-unwaaaaait foooor iiit! … Opel Meriva!

Da, in hidosenia asta de minivan pentru barbatul resemnat si subjugat care si-a indeplinit unicul scop in viata – sa procreeze… Paradoxal vorbind, cine stie, poate maine o sa vad ADP-ul tractand Peugeot-ul comunitarilor pentru parcari neregulamentare… Sau delfini pe Bega… Sau trafic in Analytics…

 Cine stie, cartile se pare c-au fost bine facute si asta inseamna ca s-ar putea intampla orice…

 

Giving LoL another shot

I’ve been gratiously asked to indulge League of Legends within my already scarce gaming habits. It has come from a colleague that looks mature and emotionally stable enough to actually be onto something here…

Since the DotA2 servers on Steam are filled with russian alphabet users who deem themselves demigods with no responsability or accountability towards their teammates, I’ve decided that IF  I get some free time on my hands this weekend, I’ll give the game another shot. Yes, I already have an old account and an almost decent idea what to do with some of the said heroes. But if I denounce DotA2 for it or not, that’ll be a different story…

League of Legends

More information to follow next week, as I have promissed to give this a fair shot :)
