Hello my little snowballs. I hope that you are in the same mood as I am while writing this. Which is awesome! First of all, if it wasn't for my brother @whack.science, I would've never found out for Steem or Steemit. So, thank you ma bro ;) Thank you for introducing this sweet community to me. Also, I want to thank people that started with this idea and made something worth everyone's time.
I had a lot of thoughts and a bit of fear while thinking about what to write in this introduction. I wanted it to be original but aren't all of our stories just like that? So I will write to you and will try to explain who am I and how my mind works. Also, I apologize for my English, that is not my primary language but I will do my best.
I was born on this little spot on earth near the Adriatic sea, „under“ the big chain of mountains. I really love to live near the sea because of the smell in the air and the possibility of living very healthy. Loving the air, nature, even the people are special. I must tell you that I really enjoy nature and all of its goods and opportunities. Today we cannot really appreciate nature as we should and I think it is because we don't even know what she gave to us and what more will she give.
I was studying the reasons for the depression and had a founded conclusion that it comes from constantly being indoors and constantly worrying about what smartphone or media tells us. But I also appreciate living in the city, the mad concrete beast, and I believe it has its magic but somehow I want them both, fifty-fifty.
For the last five years, I am studying on my 2 colleges and living in the capital city of my country. One college/direction is market communications design, which I already graduated and, digital marketing which is near the end. I can't wait to go back to my home town and enjoy good weather and lots of opportunities which some people cannot see even if its standing right in front of them. We, people, are blind, but its not entirely our fault. We just need to find the human inside (we need to find ourselves).
To find yourself, there are several possible ways to do it. One way is sport or practicing. I've practiced approx 10 sports in my life and I found sense in every one of them. Also, meeting different people while practicing really enriched my life. Another way is gatherings in nature with my friends, playing music with our instruments and having a barbeque. I will write about this even more in other posts.
We produce so much Serotonine when we are in nature with people we love and at the same time, the sun shines and we eat something we cooked. Also, spending time with animals and pets is really important. Especially with your kids or when you are a kid. I think that we must learn about other living beings and about our planet so that we could appreciate it in a way they deserve it.
I know that the majority of us are „lost“ in a sea of everything and nothing, but the only solution is to do something and to do it every day. I know it sounds cheap but if we are constantly on the same spot in our lives we tend to be bored and dissatisfied and then bad hormones start to take its spot. We must constantly try something that we don't do every day so that Serotonine would do its thing. I would like to speak about that but I have many things on my mind and I don't want to bore you with this intro. Maybe in some other post, I hope so very soon.
As I said, I am studying design and marketing, but one of my real passion is design. I love to be creative in every way possible. I love to make something out of almost nothing. When I started to design, I realized that I love playing with colors and shapes, and I really love to adjust it so that people can be pleased and entertained with almost every segment of my design.
Of course, before I even start to think about design I must make some research so that I know who am I dealing with. I have several projects and designs of what I am really proud of. When thinking about combinations made of colors, lines, objects, text or anything else, I also find myself very lost because they are limitless. But thankfully I just think about for who am I doing that and suddenly everything starts to make sense. I would like to show you some of my work and would really like your feedback because feedback is gold in my business. That is the main thing regarding my progress simply because I am doing it for others.
Also, I have to brag a bit :D my brother and I designed this logo for Steemit community BuddyUp less than 1 year ago.
I really, really, reaaaally like to cook and eat. My taste buds are something that also drives me regarding my creativity. I would like to go to cooking school but I must wait to finish my college first. Sometimes I dream about the food and the very next morning I start to cook that dish from my dream. I also had a creative dream regarding fashion but I must focus a little bit, so I left it just as a dream and a nice memory. Maybe someday... I will make some recipes, pictures or videos for you so you can understand a little bit more what am I talking about. When cooking, I really like to use fresh ingredients that are homemade. I would like to teach you some pretty neat tricks and I would also love to learn from you. And I am sure that I will.
One of my biggest love is music. I cannot ever explain the feeling that I find in a song or a band that makes me get chills. Sometimes I'm really angry at myself because I don't play any instrument. I would be really happy if I could play a guitar or piano for example. They are standard instruments but they can wake up some pretty interesting emotions in my body and my head. Since I don't play any instrument, I sing. I sing every day and it has already become my routine. It has become hard over these last few years because of my fear of singing in public. Those feelings, good or bad, are very strong in me regarding the music. If you ask me what genre do I listen, I really don't know the answer. I just listen to meaningful, heartful, strong in many ways music. I don't have anything on tape but something is „cooking“ with my friend and I can't wait for that to happen
In the sea of everything I do and I love, there are also photography and planting. I try to be a decent photographer but I don't have a camera or any equipment at all. Almost all of my pictures are taken by mobile phone and there are rare ones taken by someones professional camera. But still I must take those pictures, I just have the need to take those moments and perpetuate them. I don't really like effects and photoshoping the photos much but they do look quite better when you do some work with them. But I know that you can take a beautiful picture when the weather and nature are lined up, and all with non or a very small amount of effects. Something that I really like to photograph is nature and my plants. I love to grow chili peppers and flowers. I would also like to have a big balcony so I can plant some vegetables but I don't so I plant them inside my little apartment and for now, I have 37 plants of 7 types of chili peppers and a few flowers because I don't get much sun in my apartment during the day, only in the evening. Still, I got a decent amount of fruits so I make jams, I ground them and I put them in almost every food (love the taste, love it!), etc.
In conclusion, I need more hours in a day. I really do. I cannot really concentrate on something because so many things drives me or make me interested. And when I multitask I cannot get anything done more than 80% or so at once. So in the past few months I'm trying to single task so I have the ending of every job or task within few days. Managing time is very difficult for me. I would like to learn from you how you manage yours.
I must have forgotten to tell you something, don't know what, but it will be visible in my other posts. For now this is it. I hope that you know me a little bit better now and I hope that together we will make this community even better. I've turned 25 years old this month so let's start this year with nothing but good!
More or less, I am here to share my passion and my knowledge with you and also to learn from you as much as I can.
