Procrastination is the art of waiting

ProcrastinatingI used this quote of an unknown author in the title, but if you never heard of procrastination you might discover what it is in this article and I must tell you that is an art!

I found out myself about the meaning of this word just recently and was quite amazed and amused by the fact that this is what I’ve been doing lately – indulging myself into the art of procrastination. And I am quite sure many of you also felt victims of this vice.

According to wikipedia:

Procrastination is a type of avoidance behavior which is characterized by deferment of actions or tasks to a later time. It is often cited by psychologists as a mechanism for coping with the anxiety associated with starting or completing any task or decision.

You Know You’ve Lived in China Too Long When…

I found a group on facebook recently with this topic and it is so funny! Well it probably would be funny for the ones who lived in China. I’ve selected just a few very best ones in my opinion here:

6. All white people look the same to you.
8. You find state-employed retail staff helpful, knowledgeable and friendly.
9. You no longer need tissues to blow your nose.
12. You think that the heavy air actually contains valuable nutrients that you need to stay healthy.
15. It??s OK to throw rubbish, including old fridges, from your 18th-floor window.
16. You believe that pressing the lift button 63 times will make it move faster.
17. You aren??t aware that one is supposed to pay for software.

cine nu risca certul pentru incert pentru a-si indeplini un vis;
cine nu-si permite macar o data in viata sa nu asculte sfaturile “responsabile”.

Moare cate putin cine nu calatoreste;
cine nu citeste; cine nu asculta muzica;
