Quo Vadis?

Have you ever felt that you are constantly finding yourself at a crossroad? And every time you are asking yourself where you should go. To left or to right? And how you can be sure of the right choice.

Let me start by telling you a little story about Hercules. I’ve read this story when I was little and I’m still remembering about it even today.

When Hercules left his home and started his journey, he found himself at a crossroad. There were two old women, one for each road. The first one to talk promised him a life of riches, the daughter of a king and the kingdom itself. All he had to do was to walk down that road. The second woman told him (more…)

Am I a perfectionist?

A while back I was reading an article about perfectionism and how it affects our daily life.

The article referred to how searching for the perfect environment, the perfect project, the perfect life, in the end, it drives you crazy. Because in your mind you will search for that perfect feeling every time you want to do something, and you won’t find it because, let’s be honest, nothing is perfect. (more…)

How to make 2016 an awesome year

Truth be told I’m not sure if 2016 will be an awesome year. Looking back at the last 25 years of my life every year was awesome in his own way, and every year was awful in his own way. I don’t know if 2016 will be a good year, but be sure that I will try to make it so.

I spent the last few days thinking what I accomplished in 2015 and what I want to do in 2016. I realised that I have a lot of work ahead of me if I want to accomplish everything I want to do. (more…)

I’m doing great

I'm doing great“How are you doing?”

“I’m fine”

Most of the time this how a conversation starts. To the question “How are you” or “How are you doing” the response is usually automatic “I’m fine” or “I’m ok” or just “Ok”. And the tone we say fine and OK, most of the time it’s sad and without life. We almost never realise this automatism we made.

 We answer in a way that even we aren’t convinced that we are fine. We just don’t want to bother the other person with our problems. The thing is the other person doesn’t want to hear your problems and he expects that you will answer “I’m ok” and move on. (more…)

Essential skill in life: cooking

I’m 25 years old. At 19 I left home and went to college. In my first year I received almost weekly a package from home with food( If you’re not from Romania you won’t understand this tradition). In my second year I told my mom to send those every 2 or 3 weeks. In my 3rd year  the “package from home” almost disappeared because I wanted to learn how to cook by myself. I wanted to eat meals that were done by my own hand and by own taste.  (more…)

Why you complain about friendzone?

FriendzoneI spend a lot of time, well not a lot, but quite some time on 9GAG. And I see many posts about friendzone, crushes and other stuff like that. I knew a little bit about the  friendzone term and I was wondering myself What the fuck they see friendzone like that? Then I found out that for them “friendzone” is that zone that people like to call when then can’t get a girl, or a boy, and prefer to become friends with the hopes of a stupid romance movie character that eventually, if they stay around enough, they will become lovers and spend the rest of their lifes together.
