Last month, i heard ( or read) somewhere that a good motivational technique, or, more precisely, a good way to maintain a positive attitude is to stop for an instant every evening and decide what the best moment of that day was. Thus, after one week passes, you can decide what the best moment of the week was, and then, the best moment of the month and so on.

i could see some advantages to the above activity.One major upside is the fact that it makes you remember the past day and shuffle through the events, fact that will probably reduce the negative sentiments that one might arrive with at the end of a day. Secondly, one has to remember and CONCENTRATE on the good events, thus reinforcing trust in oneself and positive attitude.

Theoretically, all good.

the first problem that i encountered was that the first day that i tried the technique – 1st of may – was a day so trivial that i had a hard time finding AN event, let alone one that made me feel particularly good. All that i had to choose from were routinely stuff, so the label “best moment of today” went to “SLEEP LATE”. Ok, i thought, maybe the next day would be better.

Monday. A day that i usually spend in class. Lessons from 10:30 to 5:45, supper, skype, sleep. I had already begun having doubts about the effectiveness of my experiment, but i still decided to continue and label “EAT GOOD PIZZA AT LUNCH” as the highlight of my day.

OK – but so far, it seems like i really enjoy sleeping and eating. Now that is what i call a positive conclusion about oneself.

3rd day. Tuesday. Statistics lab in the morning – a perfect chance to fail at following the teacher and actually gaining some knowledge. Then, lunch. Nothing too special about that either, so no more food items in the LIST. The afternoon : work. Yey. Peak of the day? A new episode of “How i met your mother” is available online.

So… eat, sleep and watch TV shows?  I think i will not make any more summaries of the ups of my days any time soon…

Un nou inceput

Am decis pina la urma sa incep un alt blog.

Wake up and Smell the Coffee nu ma mai atrage, iar deschizindu-l, sunt tentata sa citesc ce am scris cindva, sa imi amintesc cum am fost, ce emotii aveam, ce ginduri, ce idei, ce lucruri ma motivau, ce anume cautam … Acel blog il las acolo, la o adresa noua, undeva in amintire.

Si, mergem mai departe. Aici incep din nou sa scriu.

M-a motivat puternic o promisiune pe care am facut-o unui prieten, si anume sa scriu un articol despre un pod. Chiar am inceput de mai multe ori sa il scriu. Am vreo 3-4 ciorne. Vreau insa ca acest post sa fie anume despre ce as vrea eu sa fie, insa, ori din cauza lipsei de practica, ori din alte motive, asa si nu ajung sa imi pot exprima gindurile asa cum as vrea eu. Stiu ca multi bloggeri zic ca nu scriu pentru cititori, ci o fac pentru ei inshishi. Desigur ca este o minciuna – orice persoana, dupa ce a creat ceva, ar vrea sa primeasca macar un pic de feedback, macar un pic de apreciere, macar citeva scrisori de la fani. Deci am si eu nevoie de cititori, insa simt ca va dura nitel pina cind voi simti ca scrisul meu merita vazut.

Aceasta vara a fost fenomenala. Cred ca as putea incepe cu asta :) Si asa, incet incet, ajung si la acel pod.
