It’s that time of the year, when you look back to what has been done and look forward to what you hope is coming. All considered, it has been a good year, even if there were a few unpleasant surprises along the way.
- I did not expect to lose my job, for example, but when one door closes another opens and now I am in a much better place professionally. Also I have a much clearer vision of what I want my long-term work life to be.
- I was a bit scared about turning 30 but it turns out I like this age very much and am totally zen about it.
- I got certified as a professional webdesigner and I am really proud about it.
- I didn’t put on weight, and every year that passes without me falling back into my old bad eating habits is a victory.
- I have been happy most of the time, and that is a good thing
So I wish you all a very nice New Year’s Eve (please, don’t drink and drive) and a very happy New Year.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 1 so far )
A couple of days ago, I received an e-mail inviting me to use a new website that happens to be a Christmas Gift Finder.
I guess we are all the same at this time of the year: not knowing what to offer, and not really knowing what to answer when asked what we would like to get. Well, of course, I know I dream of a Mercedes, a house, an iPhone and many other things, but I don’t think my second cousins would spend that much on my Christmas gift. So I gave that finder a try.
The principle is simple: it is based on the “visual DNA” principle. You pick a picture from a series related to a theme, and all the pictures you chose determine your profile. Hence, the perfect gift list for you. Including things that cost less than 10€!
I must say most of the things that came out were actually my taste. So why not give it a try, it works for the USA and UK – and you can also invite friends to take the test and then see their list!
What more do we want?Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )
