Back Home

Wow.. no running to catch the bus and not getting stuck in between tubes.. With absolutely no hassle at all i arrived, checked in and then traversing from one restaurant to another to choose my inflight meal. I end up buying this potatoe salad from "EAT." I didn't had any other options for a normal yummishy-looking salad.. but that's ok, I'm on my way to the salad destination, where vegetables are a gift of nature given for a final sale price of 70% in compared to the UK vegetable market.

Yes, I am in the airport, waiting for my gate to open! I don't think I realised it yet but I'm flying.. flying back home.. maybe is the 24 hours with no sleep.. I'm actually typing this as a way of not to fall asleep..

3 days of sunshine! That's what Google had on it's weathrer forecast for Cyprus and then rain! I hate it when that happens. When it rains in Cyprus.. it RAINS! It is pouring, some neighborhoods are flooded and traffic becomes CRAAZY! But it's nice, you get to spend some quality time with friends and family. The idea of being restricted into a house creates opportunities for some extra time spending!

That's what I'm looking forward too.. not the cypriot rain but the friend bonding. Need some update on my friend's life and some new adventure and a bit of refreshness. If I had a drink right now I would go for "Cheers.. to fresh and refresh!!!"


On the plane already.. Just experienced how low cost airlines can be superior than any other "quality" airline. With my big EAT. salad, ink lady apples from Morisons and inflight entertainment powered by ACER netbook and the power of free movie uploading my flight is almost to an end.


Back in Cyprus, the year around island!

I'm in Miami Beach

I love it.. The freedom.. the waking up in the morning, knowing that I have absolutely nothing to do and end up doing one thing after another in its most hassle-free version! I feel.. I feel… I actually feel like when in high school: no worries, no work, no nothing! I always used to thing that you only get this feelings in summertime. You know.. In the summer breeze, you always find time for a mojito, tanning in the beach, beach volleyball, breaking people's nerves with the "tik tok" noise of playing with summer racquets in the beach (em.. Sorry if you are one of those peoples.. Beach racquets are addictive you know..) pointless drives around the city with friends, partying up until late, going from one place to another... And the same applies while being at work.. it doesn't matter if you slept 2 hours, 5 hours, no hours.. It is the things you do that full-up your batteries!

Please don't think opposite, I love work, whenever not in university I was always at work.. And work is great.. I mean you get to spend your time beneficially, interact with so many people on a daily basis, be productive.. And having fun!!

That's how work should be at least. If you are happy with your work/career you enjoy life you do enjoy life at it's maximum. If you are not krumpy after work you have the WHOLE day to do anything, even if you spend half of it at work. That's why choosing careers is crucial. I might haven't celebrated my new year's as I wanted to but I didn't mind, because I know I'm lucky enough to have the chance to change my new year's to come..

What I learned while in London.. Is that it doesn't have to be summer to experience the best in life, as long as you carry around your "summer" spirit, every day, every time, everywhere and in any situation! Right know, I feel that I'm in Miami Beach! So got to go.. The waves are waiting..

Dear Mr.Laptop mugger

Dear mr.laptop mugger!

I hope you are enjoying my laptop.. please note that the screen needs to be updated so that the touch functionality will operate in the windows 7. As you may noticed the package was an ilegal version.. but you must have noticed because I've noticed you used Windows Xp to get into my facebook previously..

well.. I'm just writing to wish you "happy new year 2011" and because i know that every bad thing gets returned to you I wanted to ask you for my digitl Consumer Behavior notes. They are highly important to me and of no significance value to you! For any instructions how to do that let me know and I will be of service!



PS: Don't try to ask money for them, I already gave you a 500GBP worth of laptop along with some other freebies.. you know cash.. cards.. Consider this as a good thing to do!

The next station is closed!

Well.. I guess there are some disadvantages living just oposite the Emirates stadium.. you get to experience a no-tube service! and there are sooo sooo many fans in the tube towards arsenal that the tube takes some time to get to the next stop and then wait for the next tube and then... you know how these things are. It takes 20minutes road, to 1:20!

But lets face it.. It is amazing! I confess.. I'm not a football fan, but I'm a fiesta fan and I'm starting to like the football experience.. it's a fiesta! So many people, crowded, i can literally hear everything.. right now as I type there must have been a goal opportunity [well.. i'm guessing there must be another word for this]!

Is it cruel to have this while studying for exams and doing assignments? I dont things so, I always appreciate good company when i study and everytime they cheer I cheer, I even become typoexcited!

When I write about my 101 things i have to do to London, one of them will be going to an arsenal match! and don't worry.. I'll blog about it! I dont know what I'm doing next year, or where I will be living.. but I know that I will miss my every second wednesday and saturday company..

take care x

Electric topper

hey.. what's up??? how ya doing?? gosh.. i think studyish makes me like a zombie.. I really need a break [and no.. I do not need a kit-kat]

My confession for today is that I started to like this submission thing.. wow, I actually don't remember me running like that to be ahead of time.. you know.. you never know what will happen right? I think a good pair of trainers will make me excel more in the "run for success" goal I set..

I was ahead of time, and yes it was submitted.. no external circumstances no nothing! I was impressed.. new year started already? Cool!!! well.. not so much.. I think my top-up electricity will be out of money so no electricity for me.. another run to the supermarket for topping that up! Well.. the bright site, it could have failed on me when I was printing my assignment..

And top-up electricity? hehehe.. When I first came to my apartment and settled town.. it was 23:30 when the lights went off! I had to search around the spooky house with an old samsung phone which light bearly "lights"... When they give you an apartment they usually tell you let me take you to your apartment and introduce to to Mr.Boiler, Misses Washing machine.. and to Mr.ElectricityTopper.. they just told me.. "Here are the keys, the flat is only 10minutes away, dn't wory at some point the landlord will come and introduce herself over the one-year-contract period.. you will find it.." at 23:30.. there was nobody to call, and even if I did they would probably tell me "Hey.. search around the house, you will probably find it". That's what I did but nothing..

I had to wait untill the next day for an electrixian to come who actually didn't find it untill last minute.. it was between my neighboor's door and my door.. a funky little box with a "key" that looked nothing but a key.. Some sort of lego pinched in a 20th century electric meter! That;s my key topper!

Well.. quite random ha? well.. I'm actually out of anything else at the moment.. have to study, so will see you guys soon xx

Even when looking for a general switch!

I don't have much to say today so sorry.. take care and speak to you soon

Examination day 1

7:00.. Wow.. that's an early start! Well nothing goes wrong with waking up early right? I mean you can actually take your time, have breakfast and in case you have a 10:00 exam you can be there since 9:20!

I feel so great, I have set my goals into being there at 9:20 but waking up alone? with no alarm clock at 7? the odds were far better! brushing up... done, oyster card? check.. pencils? check... breakfast? not again.. all i do is eat breakfast.. in the morning.. in the break.. in lunch time.. I should find time to exercise? but can I? a university marathon only allows for mental training, assignment writing.. Well.. positive thinking, it only goes on for a week and then??? HAPPPY NEWWW YEAR!!!!

Ok.. enough about thinking, back to the goal! books? checked.. student ID card? em.. isn't the one that was lost in the "mugging situation"? Well.. yeah.. but I guess a newly printed passport should compensate for the student ID! Proof of ID? passport? checked...

Ready to go? Permission approved.. Ok, since I want to be there as early as possible I think I should take the tube? why not? it's only 4 stops away from Holborn, will take just 14minutes to go there and then i can grab some water and sweets from Saisburys and go to the examination room and socialize by the time they let as in..

Well.. I hoped! So i enter the tube, and just before Kings Cross... BLACK OUT! No lights, no tube running... and then this nice gentleman kept keeping as company every minute "There has been a person obstructing the cube in Picadilly Circus. Please remain calm, the operations will start running shortly".

Obstructing the tube? Was it actually talking to the tube while moving? Because you know.. that's offensive if you do that on the bus.. "Hey is it possible to let me know how many stops are untill Camden?" ... no answer.. "Excuse, could you be able to let me know roughly how many stops are left until camden?" answer.. and then this nice female voice on the bus speakers "would the passengers be reguested to move back the bus".. Ok.. I haven't watched the sign.. maybe because it is not in CAPITAL LETTERS and in the bus drivers window.. but anyway, back to the original story..

This "obstruction guy" was a real pain.. i mean.. obstructing the tube for 20 minutes? was it like playing hide and sick in the tube with all those mices running around? he definately had lots of courage.. i mean the man faced the fear of dying out there and I was thinking about my own problems: missing an exam that I have spend my new year celebration studying with? YES, of course I had to think my own problems.. i didn't just woke up at 7 oclock for this.. and yeah, there was another tube behind us so the actual way of letting us out to walk was not an option as the nice gentleman was insisting that "The train will depart shortly".

Ok, I reached my destination, no time to visit Saisburys though, and I arrived 10 minutes before the exam! that's good, 10minutes to relax and find myself a vending machine. but NOOOOO! There was NO vending machine for me, mainly because I was not allowed to actually enter the building. Passport was not allowed.. what was I thinking? people obey laws.. I should respect that.. but that is fine, I have 1ominutes to sort that out, aparently you just go to the reception and request a student card.

BUT.. the reception was actually like 15minutes away? (walk distance). And this is were all those summer spinning classes dominate.. 5minutes later I was in front of the secretary.. who actually wasn't the secretary but she was kind enough to tell me that although she never did it before she would try and produce a card.. And she manged to do that, 15minutes later, I had in my hands a "sample" student card.. my passport to the examination so then running again towards the examination.

I could feel the winter breeze through my face, the cold wind coming directly at me.. Wow.. i actually feel great, I believed that all these jogging people around london were crazy but now I actually understand why they jog.. It is quite invigorating and awakening! So yeah.. I arrived in the exams.. and again.. no time for vending machines!

Well.. It wasn't such a bad day.. I mean.. it was my falt if you could think of.. My "want" was to exercise.. I might even "needed" it to be inspired enought.. and I guess my today's bad luck was just the "drive" towards all this.. Well, I know, I learned now.. Next examinations, I will wear my "asics" trainers, not some UGG style shoes.. get one of those watter bottle bags to carry them around in case that a little bid o running must occured.. and never ever leave the house without a student ID card!

Gotta run.. I have another 2 exam to catch, an assignment to finish.. and a "thank you" note to write to my spinning instructor!
