stop the bullshit.. no one is interested!

It really surprises me how some people present themselves in foreign countries. And the way I react to this stupidness is by not wanting to have anything to do with them even if we speak the same language.. and it is just sad. But i'd rather keep it this way..

There is this student who REALLY gets on my nerves, he keeps saying I am from country X whenever he raises his hand to answer a question.. even if it's more than once in the same lecture! so I thought it's weird but maybe he's just too attached to his country and proud of it.. so why not! But it turned out that for him this is a way of saying I am rich, we have oil.. we have oil, we are rich!

And it doesn't stop there. He keeps talking and asking about oil regardless of what the lecture is about .. so if the lecture is about monopoly, he asks about oil and he would of course have this introduction of saying 'im from country X, blah blah... what about oil!!?' If the lecturer is talking about diamond, he'd say what about oil?! if it's economy, companies, game theory... anything and everything, he'd ask about oil!

I think i know him too well by now, to guess what his question would be and get it right even before he asks!

Sometimes I feel like telling him, show them more of what we are and who we are.. Don't be this shallow, no one cares or wants to hear more about your oil crap!

Eurovision 2008 - Believing

Eurovision 2008 Russia - Dima Bilan - Believing! But what does this mean to me?

It is more than a Eurovision contest,,, it's personal! Maybe I should consider changing my name! Why did he win this year in particular?! To make life harder for me I guess.

Some people used to think that I am a male when reading my name, but NOW EVERYONE would be sure about it!!! I definitely need a photo attached to my CV! Dima Bilan.. with the same spelling too!

And for a whole damn long year this name will be repeated over and over everywhere.. iffft!

Though I must admit, I LOVE his song!

how would it feel.. ?!

It is when I realize that I am spending all my time on research and studying, I look out of the window.. and wonder how would it feel to have all the time in the world again, how would it feel to relax, how would it feel just to enjoy.. Am I missing out on all what can be fun!!?

At times like this, when I desperately need a break, when I need to go back and taste the sweetness of not worrying about time, not worrying about deadlines, group meetings, finals.. the answer would be simple and clear.. YES, I AM!

Maybe I should just quit!

Ok I must admit, maybe I should not be dealing with washing machines anymore! So after the nail polish small accident , I had plenty of interesting ones... It's only getting worse! Though I won't mention the tissues and how bad they stick to clothes.. Im sure it happens to everyone .. or I hope so!

1- one time and because of being in a hurry I ended up putting OMO in the wrong container, and after not only drying the clothes, but ironing them as well.. I realized when I wanted to use the washing machine again a few days later that the OMO was still there.. so I had to repeat the whole process again. I swear i was close to tears. This is how frustrating and time consuming it is.

2- With a new washing machine, we forgot -and don't ask me why-to remove the shipping bolts, so it used to make not only the floor but the whole place shaking when spinning. Till we realized what's the problem and dealt with it. I still laugh when I remember that adventurous phase of not knowing why is it shaking so badly, and how funny it was trying to keep it still!

3- The other morning, while I was half awake, I decided it's time to do some laundry. While drinking my coffee and trying to start with some studying, I kept hearing those noises (which Im becoming more familiar with).

And I thought it's nothing really. But it turned out to be SOMETHING BIG. My hubby had his mobile's earpiece inside one of his jackets and he didn't know I will be super energetic and decide all of a sudden that it's time to wash everything.. the good thing though, which leads to the fact that Nokia might not be bad after all -although I prefer Sony Ericsson, the earpiece still works! YES! After all the washing and spinning.. which is absolutely GREAT.

4- As Im writing this, there is those noises, AGAIN! .. Im sick of hearing them.. Im wondering what is it though this time?! nail polish?! makeup? or I will keep the guessing till it stops. It's freaking me out! Damn it!

viral.. new music album

This is COOL, creative, different and fun.


So the marketing campaign for the new album 'atmosphere' is based on this website, where you can tag any site and then enjoy the 'graffiti'.. this would happen while listening to the album of course. It is just amazing .. all the new advertising ways! Makes the traditional ways look dull and unattractive.

On 'Structuring' ... and moving forward

I must admit that one of the most important things I have learned during those two semesters is structuring. And not only on paper, but in thinking too. I used to complicate things, and didn't really know from where to start when having to write anything. When I look back at my very first assignments, It amuses me how much this all have changed.. the style of writing, research and applying the right ways to support any arguments.

Whenever I see people wearing graduation gowns it makes me yearn for next semester (which is the last). But I keep thinking, would I really want to stop the research.. would I be happy to be done with all that Im learning!? There will always be a part of me that wants more.. more knowledge, more education, more definitions, more new concepts, more of being able to talk in any topic and any discussion, more of valid arguments, more of different opinions, .. just more of all.

So would this be a first step for something big? would the little bits of research we're doing now be just the beginning...

I hope so, and I want so.. studying here is different, it's definitely more rewarding, stronger, and powerful. Im not the same person I was a year ago. And the more I think about it, the more I want to move forward and go further..

This is the first time when I feel sad because my boss is leaving. The news was extremely shocking and unexpected! She was not only the one who interviewed and employed me .. but she was someone who made me believe that working here is fun even when it is about reconciliations and even when it's about dealing with scary, too complicated, humongous amount of data.

So she was not only the financial manager, but someone who's fun- and usually you don't get to see both in one person.

I have never imagined being this sad when a manager leaves. But I am! It's like a solid base is no longer there.. and I don't like all the new things that will be planned for the coming months accordingly, precisely after her departure.

yeah.. it is scary! the more I think about it.. the worse I feel. Why does it always have to be like this, great professionals are the ones who normally leave when everyone around is laid back .. not the other way around!

I used to order something similar in Casper & Gambini's the whole time. I think it was the only place that have it. Unless I've been away for too long and now it's everywhere else -

I JUST found it here. But what's great about it is that it's ready.. just a couple of minutes in the microwave and that's it.. you're done! The fun part starts.. and let me tell you it's so yummy!

Ok any guesses?

It is sticky.. now I bet everyone knows what Im talking about !!

It is the 'Sticky Date Pudding '. Though in Casper it's called 'Sticky Toffee Pudding' but who cares.. it tastes just as good! And just when I thought I found my hero.. the 'Anzac Biscuits', now Im completely proud of my new discovery and the sticky date pudding.
