I am now already doing jogging for more than 8 years and last year I thought it’s time to challenge myself a bit more! This October I will go for the half-marathon race in Sofia! … and as you can see from the photo above – preparation already started!
It’s strange, but I’m loving the fact that my post for T-SQL Tuesday #42 will be so close and related to my previous one for #tsql2sday. So what is technology “X” that had influence on my development in the last years? Hm… let me tell you a story about a technology and a skill that I was relying heavily on(and I still am…) in the last couple of years and that led me to where I am now! Continue reading →
…are we actually living OUR life? And I ask myself this question very often – every single time I see or feel that someone actually lives the life of someone else or at least wants to do it. What I want to know though is WHY? Why are so many people not living THEIR OWN life?
…impressing a future employer with a diploma(only). My personal view on the topic is quite extreme (although I know that all extremes are harmful), but that is probably coming from my experience as both student and someone who teaches university students.

I have just finished the listening(yes, not the reading, I am learning while I am driving also) the book Grown Up Digital by Don Tapscott and I wanted to do a quick blog post, because I am bit worried!

I will try to be short! I promise! Here’s my story…
During my first year in the university, I started realising that being really good at what you are studying for is a necessity. Actually, it is a must! However, I started realising that it is quite not enough. It just isn’t if you want to succeed and it isn’t enough, because one should have a broader spectrum of knowledge and skills. One of the areas, I thought back then is important, were presentation skills and so, I started searching for ways to develop them, but boy that turned out to be a challenge! Continue reading →
