Sweet dreams!

Category: English posts,FunnyIuliana @ 17:03

The title is “Sweet Dreams!” bit it’s a total irony. What I want to write about today is weird dreams. But not weird the way you might imagine it. IT weird. :D

When I go out for a beer with my colleagues, we laugh a lot, we make fun about our lifes, jobs, boyfriends or girlfriends. But sometimes we share our most strangest dreams. From all the weird and funny dreams I heard, two of them need to be written here, i just feel the need to share them with the world. :D

This one I heard recently, one friend of mine dreamed he was killing people…by turning them into XML.

The other one, until today I think is the most interesting, funny and stragest dream ever. One of my ex-colleagues told as one night that he dreamed himself as being a browser and an user was tring to load a certain page, but did not have patience, so it was pressing the Refresh button, or F5 button on the keyboard, or he introduced the link and then press Enter. And the guy tells us that he woke up all tired and waisted because that bloody user tortured him all night.

You’re welcome to try to make my list bigger. :D

On my way … far far away

Category: TechnicalIuliana @ 22:59

Astăzi m-a sunat cineva de la Pentalog Brașov. Așteptam telefonul ăsta de ceva vreme. De așa de multă vreme că mă resemnasem cu gândul că nu mai vine și mă apucasem de niște proiecte mai locale puțin. Și ca de obicei când mă decid și eu să mă resemnez, nu sunt lăsată să mă resemnez. Uneori mă gândesc dacă nu cumva până acum n-am fost de fapt supraviețuitor fără voie.

Buun, am vorbit cu omul vreo 15 minute, i-am explicat cu vreo câteva bâlbâieli la ce proiecte am lucrat și ce mi s-a părut mie fain, care a fost contribuția mea la ele, cu ce pot să mă laud în domeniu și de asemenea a trebuit să explic fiecare alegere de tehnologie software folosită până acum și ce am făcut în cele două luni cât am stat acasă. Eu consideram că am dat-o în bară, în special din cauza bâlbâielilor, dar se pare că nu. De asemenea se pare că acea conversație era de fapt interviul tehnic. Pe care l-am trecut.

Mai râmăne testul de inteligență și cel de franceză, pe care le voi da online și cică interviul HR, în cadrul căruia va trebui probabil să ascund tipului un mic detaliu, cum ar fi faptul că sunt sărită de pe fix. :))

Wish me luck.

John Mayer … din nou :)

Category: English postsIuliana @ 3:50

Comfortable

I just remembered that time at the market/snuck up behind me and jumped on my shopping cart/and rolled down aisle five
you looked behind you to smile back at me/crashed into a rack full of magazines/they asked us if we could leave
I can’t remember what went wrong last September/though I’m sure you’d remind me if you had to

our love was comfortable and so broken in

I sleep with this new girl I’m still getting used to/my friends all approve,/say “she’s gonna be good for you”they throw me high fives/
she says the Bible is all that she reads/and prefers that I not use profanity/your mouth was so dirty
life of the party and she swears that she’s artsy/but you could distinguish Miles from Coltrane

our love was comfortable and so broken in
she’s perfect/so flawless/or so they say

she thinks I can’t see the smile that she’s faking/and poses for pictures that aren’t being taken
I loved you/grey sweatpants/no makeup/so perfect….

our love was comfortable and so broken in
she’s perfect/so flawless/I’m not impressed
I want you back!!!

The right way

The right way to treat a pedophile.

I wrote it on this blog in romanian, I’ll write it now in English. Pedophiles should not exist. Nowhere in the animal world children are treated this way. Pedophiles are a hideous abnormality of the human society. They are a plague, a disease that needs to be stopped. Prison, castration is not enough, because these practices do not affect the mind. These deviant members of the human society need to be exterminated. Literrally. I consider pedophilia the most hideous crime because it “breakes” a child. And the damage done is irreversible. No army of psychiatrists in this world can “fix” a child after an abuse like this. And because of this, any man or woman that is able to do that to a child deserves nothing more than death.

The guy above was a pedophile that abused and killed an 11 years old child. He was caught and he admitted his deed. So there is no doubt that the man executed was guilty. Before execution he was forced to walk the entire town, so others with the same deviant urges to see what will happen to them if they do not control them selfs. These methods may be considered crude and in contradiction with “The universal declaration of human rights”, but make no mistake, pedophiles are not people, they are not human, they are monsters and they should be treated as such.

I consider it to be a very big disrespect to the victim and the victim’s family, to spend their taxes money  for sustaining these monsters in prison or specialised clinics where they are treated for their disease. It’s a waist of many, monsters like these never turn back to human form. But most goverments in the so called civilised world do exactly that. And I consider it a very big offence to the victims, their families and any ordinary tax payer that has children.

Mă doare sufletul

Category: English posts,MiscellaneousIuliana @ 11:35

Primul meu idol muzical s-a stins as-noapte. A dispărut de pe scena muzicală precum o stea căzatoare dispare de pe cer. După numai 50 de ani de viață. A fost un artist desavărșit a cărui voce mi-a încântat copilăria. A murit și nu va ști niciodată că îmi doream să îl cunosc cândva, chiar dacă mi-ar fi luat mult timp să îmi îndeplinesc această dorință și ar fi fost prea bătrân să se ridice dintr-un scaun cu rotile, coardele sale vocale ar fi fost uscate și nu mi-ar fi putut răspunde la salut sau chiar dacă ochii lui ar fi murit primii și nu m-ar fi putut vedea.

Vocea lui Michael Jackson a fost atât de puternică încât dupa căderea lui Ceaușescu a fost prima care a ajuns la urechile mele. Datorită lui m-am decis să învăț limba engleză și în clasa a IV-a le cântam colegilor și doamnei învățătoare “Who is it?”. Am plâns de ciudă când a concertat în România, iar părinții mei nu și-au permis să mă ducă la concert.

Am suferit imens când a fost acuzat de pedofilie și asta pentru că necunoscându-l nu puteam să trag eu o concluzie validă și trebuia să citesc aberațiile din presă. Am suferit pentru că știam că artiștii au firi labile și deviante și era posibil să fie adevărat. Am suferit pentru că poate era doar încercarea unor nenorociți însetați de bani care loveau puternic în imaginea lui și aveau să reușească în demersul lor fix din cauza compromisurilor pe care trebuie sa le faca în mod normal o vedetă de talie mondială pentru a-și păstra statutul.

Abia așteptam reîntoarcerea lui. Chiar dacă sigur n-aș fi ajuns la Londra la nici unul din concertele lui.

50 de ani de viață, aproape 50 de ani de muzică, asta lasă în urmă Michael Jackson. Asta și multă durere în sufletele celor ce au gustat muzica lui precum o delicatesa foarte scumpă. N-am să-i urez “Rest in Peace” sau “May God take care of your soul”, am să-i urez să trăiască veșnic prin intermediul muzicii sale care să treacă de la suflet la suflet precum trece de la om la om virusul gripal.

[English]: My soul akes

My first music idol died last night. He disappeared from the musical world as a falling star disappears from the night sky. After  only 50 years of life. He was a complete artist whose voice charmed my chidhood. He died and he will never know that I really wanted to meet him someday, even if it would have taken me so much time the he would have been old and barely standing, hid voice might have been gone because of the dryness of his old vocal chordes or his eyes would not have been able to see me.

His voice was so strong that it was the first one to reach my ears after the comunist system broke down. Thanks to him I decided to learn English and in the fourth grade I was singing “Who is it?” to my teacher and my class mates. I cried with anger when he came in Romania on tour, and my parents did not have the posibility to take me to the concert.

I suffered a lot when he was acused of being a pedophile because I did not know him,  I could not reach my own conclusion and I was forced to read all the horibile things from the newspapers. It aked because I knew that artists have troubled and deviant souls and there was a posibility the horrifying rumors were true. It aked because it may have been just a try to destroy his godlike image in order to rip him off financially and the try might even succed because a star this big has to make a lot of compromises in order to stay that way.

I could barely wait his comeback, even if I would not have been able to go to London to hear him sing live.

50 of life, almost 50 year of music, this is what he left us with. This and a excrutiating pain in the souls of the ones that tasted his music as an expensive delicacy. I will not say “Rest in Peace” or May God take care of your soul”, I will just say “May you live forever, Michael Jackson, and may your music pass from soul to soul, as the flu virus passes on from man to man”!
