Today is that day of the year when every conversation starts with "happy international women's day", or "oh, today is the international women's day, how do you feel about it?", and here is my very "favourite" one: "what did you get from your man for the women's day?"!!!!
Stuff I write or quote every now and then…
It was 3 years and 4 months ago when I last updated my blog! Where did all that time go? How did I forget about "Me" time? Couldn't I find some time over that period to update my webpage? or I made other tasks in priorities and left personal tasks on the side? Was it worth it? I asked myself all these questions when I looked into the "my website" folder on my computer. I couldn't even remember how to update a website! I had to think for a few minutes to refresh my memory for that. The answer to all these questions is "My PhD". Yes the PhD project took my time and energy all for itself that stopped me from doing things I always wanted to do. But when I look back, I would say that it was a real challenge and definitely worth doing it, I have no single regret on that.
People who know me well, know that my birthday is very special to me. You might think that only kids are super happy about their birthdays, and only kids talk about their birthday :) Yeah, that's true. So to be on the same side, I would say that I feel a very deep happiness inside me every year before October hits the calendar. To be honest, I don't really care about what I get as a presie or even if I get any! All I think about is having my friends and family around me. Those who care about and respect that "CHILDISH" feeling of mine; and they get happy with my happiness.
Eight years ago today I first landed in Melbourne , Australia for the first time. The country that I now love from the bottom of my heart and know it as my second home. I was reborn in that country, where I planned to stay only for 3 months but ended up to 2 years and 3 months ful of joy and experiences. I will forever cherish my time and beautiful friends I found there from the very beginning. I gained tons of experiences over that limited amount of time, through which I became a completely different person. Here I am today that reshaped "clay character" from down under.
I don't know whether they've made any facebook icon represents as "feeling honored" or not! If they haven't I should've taken a photo of my face tonight and post it to them ;) I'm sure they could make something cartoonish out of it :) Through my project I get introduced to an instrument pioneered by Prof. Jacob Israelachvili so called SFA.
You must be a woman to understand what I'm talking about tonight! You definitely need to be a woman to know how it feels spending some quality time with your girl friends! To talk to them freely (I mean tell them everything, the stuff that no one knows. Share it with them without any worries of being over judged or left alone).
The last 9 months of my stay in Australia, back in 2009, I met someone whose lifepath was in the oposite direction of mine! He never chose to pursue his education after high school! To him, education in University was waste of time!
I can't really remember since when I started to love my birthday so much! Even thinking of it, from a month earlier gives me a joy, deep in my heart. This might sound a bit childish, but it's O.K. to feel like a kid once in a year ;) Actually, it's O.K. to be happy as a kid the whole year along. As a kid, we all have a dream of growing up to be able to act as our very first role models, mummy and daddy. To gain that capability of doing everything, anything comes along! This enthusiasm for my birthday arrival might come from that feeling! However, today I'm old enough to not dreaming of getting older! :D my mind doesn't seem to care about my biological age though!
Yes, it's too good to be true ;) can't believe it! We are up in the north, at 59.9° N, and still enjoying the 30 something celcius temperature ;) Global warming, ha?!!!!
It was truly an experience one must have in lifetime ;) Couldn't believe how different this could be from my other experiences!
Today is the first day of writing something here on this blog! When I look back the first date I started designing this website, March 2012, can't believe that took me so long to apply all my plans to it! I don't know whether I shall look for an excuse for it or just leave it quiet as it's so embarassing to even talk about it!
