Substitute for..?

April 28, 2010

I wish!

I have no idea why but I have to admit I have a problem. Every year I spend way too many of euros in tech. I do. I am not kidding and I am not bragging. It’s a disease, it must be!

I am always chasing the latest trend and I always end up owning much more high-tech stuff than I could ever use in a lifetime. Like, I have a PS3, a Nintendo Wii, a DS Lite, a DSi, a Sony PSP.. Not to mention the oldies (Gamecube, PS2…) My every day schedule makes pretty damn sure I have absolutely NO time at all to even turn them on once a week.

Last year I bought an iPhone 3G and this year, after some crying and a serious case of cold feet and what not, I decided I had to give it up and try something new so I went for another uberexpensive phone (HTC HD2) just for trying it out and now that I’m getting bored of it I’m considering something more android-like. That, of course, until the next iPhone sees the light of day.

This needs to stop, right?

Some people would say I am doing this as a substitute for something else. Believe me, I’m not missing the obvious “elses” you must be thinking about, so.. What would be the explanation for all of this … chronicle di_satisfaction?

Anyway, I’m honestly considering coming up with some sort of garage sale. I’ll give you a buzz once I finally get the guts to do it and maybe you can help me out of my misery. Deal? 😛


Crazy Theory! Or not…

It really makes sense!

It’s absolutely out there and obviously very hard to believe but those scientists sure have some vision!

Check it out and then wiki it. 😛

After a long long time since my last blog post on the interwebz, I realized I kinda missed it, ya know. The wackiness of talking to absolutely no one in particular. Sharing my thoughts out in the open. Not a care in the world.. A sort of mental Hakuna Matata we can hardly afford these days…

Anyway, here I am. My last blog was as dead as dead can be and I needed to move on. This is my first post here and I want to start by saying that as soon as I find out how to moderate comments I’ll turn it ON instantly. Hate those, so don’t bother unless they’re pure gold. I’m new to this wordpress thingie. Been looking online and it seems like blogspot is not the place to be anymore and wordpress has it all covered. So here I am!

Today was such a boring day I have absolutely nothing to post here. I guess I could talk about the vagueness in which I have been drifting lately but that’s too vague! It’s odd to realize that after some careful consideration, I’ve come to notice that my most exciting moments of the last few weeks were getting a new mobile phone and screaming at an insurance company’s secretary. And it’s a close tie between the two.

Since excitement will absolutely NOT be found on this first post, allow me to bore you to death and introduce myself so you can get to know me a little bit better.

I’m Pedro and I am a product of (late) 84. I currently live in Porto, Portugal, although that wasn’t always the case and I’m dreaming my days away while trying to graduate from college (2011, it seems…) and making some hard earned money working full time in the ever-changing telecom business.

Between hyperactive teenage siblings, angry old men, bitchy pseudo jet-set ho’s, fast paced business people, incredibly dumb class mates, Hitler-inspired hierarchic superiors, weird/great teachers and out of this world coworkers, my life goes about full of social interactions I’d rather be avoiding. But since I can’t live alone in a deserted island with infinite power supply, peace and endless prosperity and my life currently depends on interactions with others, my days consist in a very, VERY intricate web of connections between all those people and I.

I guess this blog will be about that and hopefully I can share a lot of it here with all you, my soon-to-be faithful readers. 🙂

I’ll be in touch and keeping you posted will be my main concern. Seriously, I’ll be thinking of nothing else. 😛

[PS – This blog will be written in English. Sometimes Deutsch. It works just like an entrance fee at a popular night club. :P]
