Get to know me: my 10 cool steemit posts of all time

in gettoknowme •  6 months ago

I like challenges, they always get the best out of us, that's why I accept this funny problem in which @matkodurko put me back: he nominated me to participate in the #GetToKnowMe Challenge by @Anomadsoul.

As know implies to show us as we are, including our strengths and weaknesses, I don't care to see my first posts, those that many would like to edit. Although I confess that if I could edit them I would only change their design, because while I was choosing the 10 publications I read each one and I continue to coincide with each word I wrote more than a year ago. This time has been an evolution in Steemit and in my personal life.

📌 1. Reasons why you should read my first post

This was my #Introduceyourself, and if I had to resubmit myself I would use that introduction again. A year later I continue to identify myself fully with everything I said, he describes me perfectly. So if the intention is to know me you can start here.

📌 2. My Key to Happiness: Do What You Love!

We all have a philosophy of life and in this post I share one of my foundations. The society adopted as the main objective of the human being "to achieve happiness", but happiness is subjective because we all make different things happy, however, the shortest way to get happy is by doing what we are passionate about.

📌 3. The frustration led me to break a personal brand: my firsts 8.3 K

This is an important episode of my life, where I didn't win a physical medal but a spiritual medal. Years ago I adopted sport as my source of energy and learned through it to transform difficulties into opportunities.

📌 4. I came back with a collection of experiences

I lived in Colombia for 4 months and during that time it was difficult for me to dedicate time to the platform: I had to work a lot, I didn't have a computer or internet, and I used my free time to train. Upon returning to Venezuela I decided to take up the blog and share all the experiences I had acquired.

This is the introduction to the series that I called "To the Ultimate of the earth", because there I share everything I achieved and the places I visited thanks to Ultimate Frisbee, the reason why I mainly dared to go out of my comfort zone.

📌 5. To the Ultimate of the Earth: Colombia # 3 | Pacifying with a frisbee in a war zone

Now I present to you one of the most impressive trips I have ever made: I visited one of the most dangerous areas of Colombia with the objective of carrying out sports activities to promote peace.

Going there transformed my way of perceiving life in various aspects, and helped me understand the wonderful ability humans have to adapt to any space and situation. This is one of those experiences in which it seems that life slaps you and says "Awake!".

(BTW!, it was also the first time I got a vote from @curie 💙).

📌 6. I didn't catch the frisbee, the frisbee caught me

If you wonder why I always appear with a frisbee in my photos, or why he talked so much about Ultimate Frisbee then you should read this post. Here I explain how I met him, how my process has been and why it is so important to me.

📌 7. Experiment | 6 sunsets at the same time and in the same place

Among all the posts I have published this is the one that cost me the most. Seriously, you can't imagine how many days of study I had to devote to be able to find a correct conclusion that would explain why no dusk is the same.

It's a job that I would like to be able to anchor to my blog start so that everyone could see it. I feel a lot of satisfaction with the result, even though the initial idea was only to make a photographic record, and at the end look at what became.

It always happens to me: I want to make a simple post but as I research the subject I discover so interesting things that I can't stop nurturing the work with them.

📌 8. I learned to run with my heart when my legs couldn't go anymore

An athlete is known for the attitude on the field of play; so here you can meet the Milka who runs even when she feels her legs are going to break, and all thanks to a special gasoline.

📌 9. El Hatillo: the hidden geographical treasure on the map of Venezuela

I love this place! It's a small but surprising site, and doing a report on it represents my way of explaining to the world that Venezuela isn't just a country full of problems, because we are located in one of the richest territories in natural resources of the entire galaxy. There is already a lot of bad news about my magical country, so my way of contributing something positive to the situation has been to write only positive posts that highlight its benefits.

📌 10. Caught at the airport: I kept the frisbee in my hand

I have heard many times that quote that says "if you want to meet someone, travel with him"; this time I met myself, I put myself perhaps to the limit of self-control, patience and tolerance because I wanted to make a trip within the country and it seems that all the deficiencies of public services and nature were against me, but I still found a way to enjoy the ride.

I only include this post in my top 10 so you know the adventures you may have to go through if you want to come soon, but above all, I'm interested that you understanding that even if nothing goes well it doesn't mean that everything will go wrong.

From all the cool things about Venezuela, one that I would never imagine is that you guys take the frisbee a hella serious!

Great to know just in case you come to visit Brazil one day "yeah, let's go to the beach play a little frisbee for fun" and then * baaaaaang * completely owned. hahahaha


Would happen to you in Slovakia as well btw :) More and more people play it here :) Slovakia = neighboring country of Poland (SF3) :D


That's indeed super cool @matkodurko, and it seems like great fun ! Are you going to SF3?


If you and @mrprofessor meet in Slovakia or Poland please throw frisbees together and send me a picture. It's officially a mission 😎


😂 You're so cool! Yes, please. Ultimate Frisbee is a serious sport here, although... most of the players emigrated from the country, and there are almost no competitions anymore. But some of us keep on throwing our frisbees.

Years ago I wanted to go to two tournaments that are held in Brazil, one in Rio de Janeiro and another in Caraguá. I hope I can do it soon and see you there 😉

Poor me :D made a mistake that I nominated you haha :D now I have to read all this stuff :D I remember number 7 was crazyyyyy post, so much work... going to read 6 now
