busy long weekend

I arrived in Vienna less than two weeks ago and this weekend I had to go back to Romania for a couple of days. It was a bit of an emergency and  well.. it had to be taken care of. But man, it was a looong drive. Good thing I was only the co-pilot for most of the drive. Also had a bit of time to play around with the camera while my brother-in-law was driving.

Dunno why, but I just can't get enough of these long exposures of headlights.

On a totally unrelated subject, I went backpacking for a day... in the Alps, near Mixnitz. It was pure awesomeness. Here are some shots. Note to self: next time bring a pair of boots. Tennis shoes are not for mountaineering.

Alright... enough of this... I'm going back to job hunting. It hasn't been going well... :-<

Until next time... bleib cool!

upcoming articles

Self motivation is something I constantly have to do in order to achieve anything. The first thing to do when trying to self motivate yourself is to find something new and interesting to do. It's the easy part. At first, a lot of things seem worth doing. Going the whole distance with a project (especially with a long-term project) is the hard part of doing anything. I have a few ideas about what to write on the blog and what photo projects to conduct. Moving has given me a sense of starting from scratch. It's one of the best and scariest feelings one could encounter. But enough about that. Here's what I'm working on: an article about my experience at the North University as a MLA student (the dos and donts and a whole lot more) and a photo project + article called 'An untrained eye's walk through Vienna' (or something to that effect). Deadline: the end of the month.


P.S. This is the second part of motivating yourself: publicize your intentions. Knowing that someone expects some final results may give you an incentive to work harder.

vienna is an awesome place to be

Man! I arrived yesterday. Already feel at home. Went the other day to have lunch at this Serbian restaurant. Awesome food. The bread in particular caught my eye. Needless to say the taste was just where it was supposed to be. The bread, the meat, the seasoning and the Serbian beer all blended to perfection.

It remains to be seen what will come out of me signing up for the masters programme. Colour me nervous.
