looking for balance

genial postul Mikai, mai bine de atat nu stiu sa fi vazut/ citit/ auzit pe undeva.

Ador piticii, imi dau un simt al realitatii, alung dracii, desi se lasa greu induplecati si de obicei pleaca cu un sut in fund, cat despre minte, o caut cu lumanarea si aici se intampla exceptia care confirma regula, nu o prea gasesc. Prostia … hm, cu ea e mai greu, ca de obicei nu stiu de unde vine si nici cat sta in vizita, vine rar, dar nu se stie niciodata, sper sa o tina departe piticii.

Una peste alta, sunt ai mei, mi-s dragi toti si sper sa nu ma lase prea curand :-S

m-am apucat de ascutit creioane

I need something catchy …

va suna familiar? … sunt in cautarea unei idei, adica, idei eu am, dar nici una la inaltimea asteptarilor, asa ca … nu ma puteti ajuta asa-i?? daca va spun despre ce e vorba s-a cam dus surpriza, asa ca stau si ma chinui singura, sinapsa dupa sinapsa, in curand o sa iasa scantei … dupa cum ziceam m-am apucat de ascutit creioane, cu doua am fost successful, la al treilea am ascutit pana l-am consumat de tot, al naibii avea mina prea moale si se rupea incontinuu, … am ramas si fara creion acum. Asta imi aduce aminte de joculetul lui Frank de la Londra, sa rupi un creion lovindu-l cu un deget in timp ce altcineva il tine de capete, … parea imposibil, intr-un final chiar si eu care ma indoiam am reusit. Morala, intai exerseaza in gol, si apoi focuseaza-te pe ce e dincolo de creion, cu alte cuvinte, focus on what’s beyond, on the outcome, and not on the obstacle itself. Nice lesson 🙂

I need something catchy …

orange wednesday it is then! 🙂

web 2.0-ish

Multe se intampla prin ograda noastra in ultima perioada. Programul de vara de internship s-a incheiat, sper sa putem curand sa prezentam public BEE-ul, concediile s-au terminat si ele, restantele au trecut cu bine 🙂 pentru unii :P, iar toamna vine cu vesti, cu noi preocupari, cu planuri noi si cu oameni noi. De curand Razvan dadea sfoara-n tara despre urmatoarea intalnire Wurbe iar pe myadobe.ro se scrie tot mai mult si tot mai bine.

Adobe a sarbatorit un an de prezenta in Romania, iar echipa in continua crestere pastreaza inca izul de gasca de prieteni care ne e atat de familiar. S-au intamplat multe vara asta si asta nu e decat inceputul. Vine vremea conferintelor, vine noul an universitar, si dupa cum scria cineva la un moment dat pe blog, intr-un sfarsit de august planifici unde petreci Revelionul, deci vine iarna.

Pana atunci insa, ne intoarcem la urban, la Anchor Plaza, la consola Wii si la lifturile inteligente din cladire care par sa fie mai celebre decat companiile gazduite in cladirea de birouri clasa A+ din blvd Timisoara 26Z.

povesti

Astazi am citit, si am ascultat povesti cu care am crescut. E adevarat ca imi lipseste pick-up-ul — si ca am rugat-o pe mama sa nu dea la anticariat discurile vechi — dar povestile astea au acelasi farmec, chiar daca sunt in format mp3 si le ascult in winamp.

Una din povestile care mi-a placut mult este “Cei trei muschetari”, poveste, sau piesa, din cauza careia de fapt nu am putut niciodata sa citesc cartea :). De fiecare data cand o ascult descopar noi intelesuri, si realizez cat de mult m-a impresionat cand eram copil.

Mai jos sunt cateva citate din piesa care mi-au placut mult, si o sa incerc sa pun povestea si pe trilulilu, sa o ascultati si voi de va va face placere.

Fii credincios cuvantului dat, dar nu ti-l da cu usurinta,

Prietenii n-au nevoie, dusmanii nu-l merita

Nu alerga dupa glorie, dar nici nu fugi de ea

Fa in asa fel, incat oricand sa te insoteasca de la sine

Mai bine sa-ti sangereze pielea, decat sa-ti roseasca obrazul

Mai bine leu mort, decat caine viu

Pleaca-te capului, nu palariei

– Onoarea, prietenia, dragostea

201 to Hawaii 4.0

I’ve never been to Hawaii, actually I never dreamed of going to Hawaii, to me this is a place to visit after retiring 🙂

And I never had a vision, or at least not one that is measurable. In AIESEC the vision wasn’t to me 10.000 eXchanges to 2005, my vision was becoming change agents, making our community better, bringing home international experiences and behaviors; this is what I need now to complete this Hawaii 4.0, the outcome, the thing beyond the pencil 🙂

As for the 201, 201 pictures, moments captured, just to remind us …

mancarica de ardei

🙂

Super buna, complimente bucatarului

Si ca bonus, salata de vinete cu ceapa si cu maioneza si bere timisoareana, asa ca sa fie rasfatul complet. Acum, ciocolata After Eight, putin blogging si perspectivele unei seri perfecte de vineri se contureaza incet dar sigur.

Din pacate nu am reusit sa ajung la Motoare, Danut, s-a trezit prea tarziu, si desi imi plac surprizele, de data asta nu s-a putut aranja 😛

 

In rest, ma asteapta un weekend plin de tot 😛

so long, London

Following my last experience flying out of Heathrow Airport, I took SOME time before the flight. Robin was so nice to drive me to Terminal 2 and although the flight is only at 12:30, I arrived here at around 9:15. The check in for Tarom was just open so I got the chance to chose my seat (window, you are right:)). The security check went very smoothly this time, but I had to get rid of my jacket, get rid of the shoes, luckily I do not wear a belt or some other metals and so I did not need to strip there, ugh …

After all this was done … free shopping time 😀

 

I spoiled myself this time, a lot :D, I had the time, the money, the opportunity, so … you have to understand that I am not a shopping maniac and that I usually do not buy things just for buying, but now was the first time when I could actually afford to buy a perfume, the perfume I liked, and this not by counting the money or renouncing the chocolates, it feels so good 😀

 

So yes, I spent some money, but it was worth every penny 😛

 

And now, I’m just waiting in the airport, waiting for them to announce the gate for my Tarom flight, and wondering what other shops are still around to visit :P. I just called Delia to ask her if she still wants that book of … God I forgot his name, … for Emad, but she didn’t answer, so I’ll just ask anyway 🙂 and … maybe I’ll try some Harry Potter literature as everybody was talking about how good are the books and that the movies are just a touch of those, so … who knows what else I’ll buy until departure.

 

This is it now, more tonight, from home.

 

[later update]

 

of course I found the book shop 🙂

I did not find Stephen Covey for Delia, but I bought the second book from the series of Harry Potter, … the Chamber of Secrets, I bought a book of Paulo Coelho I did not see in Romania – although I would preferred The Witch of Portobello that in Romania is not yet published – as I did not find it, I bought this Like the Flowing River, a collection of short stories that I like already. What else … I bought one of those easy, commercial books, like the american soap opera series inspired by Cosmopolitan and another one that just seemed very interesting from the synopsis, combining some adventure, mysticism, fantasy and some crime probably. So, although I have at home five books still waiting on the shelf, I added four more today, as the summer is over, the fall will pass very fast, and as they say, the winter is always long … let’s just say that I’m preparing for those cold, winter nights 🙂 not to mention that I also bring with me home a box of fine English tea … for those evenings also.
