Winning a Photo Contest and a new design

So this week has been eventful enough, I totally forgot to write about two very delightful news!

The film version of the Road trip

For the road trip I had taken with me also one of my film cameras, the Asahi Pentax. I was also equipped with 3 films, 1 a friend lend me few months before (expired) and 2 new ones.

 People often remark that I'm pretty lucky. 
Luck is only important in so far as getting the chance 
to sell yourself at the right moment. 
After that, you've got to have talent and know how to use it.

A weekend full of dancing

There is something that I haven't shared yet in this blog. Ever since I started working as a waitress at a local Latin bar, I became involved in the local latin community, and of course started dancing!

I won't bother you with stuff like how awesome dancing is. No. Instead I will be talking about the
2nd Patras Salsa Meeting that took place this weekend and how awesome that was.

Repairing my Magsafe T connector

As I already have mentioned, the power cord of my laptop was cut because of too much use and twisting. I needed to fix it, because I need my laptop to work. (And have access to my previous work too)

So I searched for options:
a) buy a new adaptor
b) give it for repair
c) repair it myself

Guess what I chose.^^

The most exciting phrase to hear in science, 
the one that heralds new discoveries, 
is not Eureka! (I found it!) but rather,
 'hmm.... that's funny....'

The unexpected package

It's Monday morning and I wake up in a bad mood. You see, the previous night, while working on my laptop, the power cord that charges my computer got completely cut. Which meant an empty battery and no access to my work whatsoever. I was dreading the fact that now I had to spend time fixing it, instead of working on my projects.

But when I came down the stairs to have breakfast I encountered an envelope and a big red box on my dining seat. There was a big surprise that totally changed my mood for the rest of the day.

Der Shetlandpullover

How annoying is that you get to finish a pullover in time for chilly Autumn, but the weather decides to prolong summer for two more months?

This is the story of my first winter pullover.

Two cool stories

Have you ever wondered how vegetables would look inside an MRI? Well, apparently someone did, and has set up a blog about it!


How would you react if you encountered this mysterious circle in the bottom of the ocean? 



Curiosity killed the cat, they say, but do you agree after seeing this?! 

Yoga socks

My favorite pair so far! The yoga socks I started almost a year ago and finished just last month.
