3 days awake

I heard this song, I think it’s amazing…Not that I ever experienced being three days awake. With me it’s more like one night out means next few days relaxing…

Cartoons

Do you remember days when you were a child? Those were careless times, full of joy and happiness. We had toys, free time to play with them, books and we had cartoons. Every Sunday morning I was watching cartoons and in the evenings as well (before the daily news). I couldn’t wait to sit in front of TV and watch them. It was like sending your mind away, to incredible places. A child needs that. Some hope that somewhere everything is perfect and it develops his/her imagination. And if it isn’t perfect, it’s even better. It makes a child think critically. So cartoons are good for personal development as well, not just for entertainment. And now, when we are older? Do you still watch cartoons? Well I do, from time to time. It’s incredible, my mind still flies away and if you’d watch me carefully you could see how happy they make me feel. So watch this video to feel like a child again. Enjoy!

Wait. Did I see you smiling? You see it’s good to listen to mama Spela.

Addicted to Facebook?

I have 267 friends. I’m in a relationship and I like strawberries. All that and a lot more you can find out on my Facebook profile. You can see how I look like and what my name and my last name are. You can see photos from my Erasmus exchange, from my holiday and from my birthday party. You can see who my friends are and what I’m doing and how I’m thinking. You can take my photos of and distribute them without my permission. I’ve made some private customization which differ from beginning settings (when everything is public). I write and read stuff every day. Every single day. In the morning and in the evening. If I’ve some minutes off I go on-line to check up what’s new. Ok, why do I’ve a Facebook profile? Because it seemed cool and easy to use. To keep in touch or to rebuilt contacts. From curiousity. To chat. To get information. To find out about events and not to forget birthdays. Ok, stop. I’m addicted. I admit that. And I’m afraid. From possible abuse of my information and photos. Even if my profile isn’t public here is a possibility that I don’t know all Facebook friends very well (so true) and also those people who aren’t my friends can see my photos. There are whole procedures described on Youtube. You can watch on of them here. There were cases when people failed a complaint claiming that their photos have been abused (shown in media) and investigators refused to help them due to the fact that they or their friends have friends which they don’t even know (which is quite common nowadays). Be afraid, be very afraid. The founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, says that the age of privacy is over. That society has changed and that people like the fact that everyone can know everything about them. That’s so arrogant from him to say. If he thinks that Facebook is the leader of the society…well, so not true. They manipulated us. Step by step. We have to open our eyes. I’ll write my thesis about that, Privacy on internet based on Facebook.

Where did I disappear?

OMG I don’t even know where to start. Do you remember my last post? Ok, my wish came true!!! I’m going back to Lisbon! An amazing trip is waiting me, yeeey. Destinations of my trip will be as followed: Ljubljana-Klagenfurt-Frankfurt-Faro-(maybe Marocco)-Lisbon-Porto-Girona-Trevisto-Ljubljana. It’ll last 16days and those days are my motivation to do two more exams, to start writing my thesis (already reading material) and to get some energy for my internship that’ll be in July. On Monday I’m getting my car. In two hours I start working that I’ll have some sleep and work again tomorrow all day long. On Monday I’m getting my car! I have to do insurance and registration and spend shit loads of money on it. Well I just came from a park where they are holding dinosaurs’ exhibition. There were mostly babies and their parents but I kind of liked it as well…A baby in me will never die…

Kan

These days were amazing, I have spent them with family and friends…Eggs have been decorated, apartment cleaned, I went out and to the Slovenian sea side. And and and – while I was on my Erasmus my dad bought me a dog, he named him Kan. The thing is that I used to live in a forest house and from time to time I was afraid of being alone. And my dad got the idea of buying a dog. He did that without consulting me. I would have chosen something…well…smaller… not Italian mastiff…So I refused of taking care of him and my dad doesn’t really take much time to do that. I felt sorry for the dog. But I was really afraid. I never had a dog before and Kan was already 6 months old when I came back to Slovenia. We didn’t know each other. Well that dog is big and energetic.  My friend said we should take him for a walk and so we did. At first she was having him and them we changed. He’s a nice dog. But we should take him to the school…For now I’ll come more often and take him for a walk…Maybe we’ll become fond of each other. I don’t want him to suffer. But my fear is still here. He’s afraid as well…afraid of cars and other people and of everything. So maybe we are a perfect match.

Energy

It’s spring time…you know what that means…the lack of energy for most of us…All I want is to sleep and rest (which I can’t but I’d love to). There are just so many things to do that I can’t believe it. I didn’t have time to write a new post until today. Last week it was mostly all about debate. We had national debate competition and debate presentation for our profesors. I had so much fun! I started debating about a year ago, so I’m a beginner but I already noticed some progress and there is something about those seven minutes when you have time to convience people that you’re right. Adrenalin, I can feel you in my blood…Apart from that I kept myself busy with work and classes. And now I’m tired…But it’s about time to do some paper-work.

This is why I find the following video even more interesting. I wonder where this girls are getting so much energy from…they are amazing!

They should motivate all of us to keep moving.

Am I crazy?

What is normal? Why do people concern normal as something good? Why being different makes people think that you are crazy? So we should all be like ships, having the same values, always be polite and not to have our own opinion? We should just follow the crowd…do the same as others…where did that lead us? There are no jobs for people that actually finished their studies…I was recently talking to a woman and she said that she doesn’t understand why do people look down on her because her daughter didn’t enroll on high school but has chosen to go on nursery school instead. People assume that getting profession straight away instead of studying for years means that you just aren’t smart enough to do so. That you are part of so called “working class” that doesn’t have brain and that you are only good for something less important and valued. Nowadays most of pupils enrolls on high school, after words on universities and that they think that’ll assure them a job. During that time they are being passive and they don’t do anything to be better than other. And than they wake up because after writing two or three job applies they don’t get a job. Wake up!!! I’m not saying that it’s impossible to get a job but it’s very hard, that’s for sure. So if you don’t intend to be super active during your studies don’t even bother to finish them. Rather go on specialized school and get one of the professions that are needed on today’s market. We can’t all be managers, can we? And people should be respected for what they are doing and not looked down at. Now some of you might say that I’m crazy, that education is important, blabla. Don’t bullshit to me. Stop being so conservative. Now everyone has a degree which is only a ticket for the match. So try to be different and be smarted than others.  I would decide differently if I would have known that everything will collapse. There are no jobs, people. They were for our parents, but not for us. People work until they aren’t so wormed out that they can’t do much more.  Take some of our professors for example. Ok, they might have been good in the past, but no they should give place to others. They should give place to young people with new ideas and lots of energy.

I just described a huge problem. I opened my eyes, but how does this help me? I don’t study to get an E or something and forget everything the day after. I would like to understand and learn, to connect things and I would like to make a difference. Just look our politicians, they only care about their salary and they don’t give a shit about their citizens. And yet we voted them. Corruption. And don’t think that students that get on important positions do much better. I guess power makes people bad, selfish and ignorant. And we can only see them making us wolf to wolf.

Everyone that thinks diferent will be locked down and be threated as a madman. Soon we’ll become one. That happened to McMurphy in One Flew over the Cuckoo\’s Nest.  Worth of watching. You can get your own impression if he was crazy here, before they did that.

Simple

Nowadays girls want to stand out, they dress up by following latest trends, no matter if they fit them or not. You can see that they don’t feel good and consciousness in their outfit. They wear clothes in colors their eyes and skin tan don’t match at all. Oh, another story is with black. Why the hell do people wear black so much? There is no creativity at all. Why can’t people find their own style instead of following someone else’s. I can recall one time when I was in high school. It was during psychology when our professor (amazing man I might add) told me that finally there is someone wearing colors the light up, that I am like sunshine during all other students wearing dark colors. Black is elegant, blabla…ok you can combine colors with black, but please don’t hide you in black.  Your personality has to be seen. If you are wearing black you can make the impression that you don’t want to be bothered, that you don’t want to socialize. So try to find your own style, you can wear black but than at least take care that design is creative. I’m no fashion freak but at least I feel good in what I’m wearing. And this is what counts. So when you are buying clothes think carefully whit what you’ll combine them and if you’ll have the guts to wear them at all. It doesn’t make sense if you buy something and it’s only lying in your closet, is it? Find your style! Don’t wear shapes and colors just because they are in this season. Who makes criteria’s anyway? Make your own criteria’s. And don’t wear to much black. Find your own way and make it trendy. For you. And remember – sometimes simplicity is what makes things attractive. And don’t forget to wear a smile; it’s your best weapon to make people fall in love with you.
