Epicurean philosophy


This is more for my Greek friends. But I’m sure you can get an idea if you use some online translation…


Oh yeah, I have a blog, that’s right… I remember something…


I had somehow forgotten about this… Wow, time flies, my last entry was in January 2013, and now it’s August 2014…

However, I recently decided to write down stuff that I do every day and is new, or kind of new… They say “do a new thing every day that scares you” (but I’m not sure what scares me anymore, I can even deal with cockroaches for the most part)… so I’ve decided to just do “new things” and write them down and see what happens 🙂

New things that I have done in the past few days include (but are not limited to)

– I woke up at 6.15 one day and went running  – yes that’s right, that’s before work!

– I woke up at 6.40 on a Saturday to go catch a boat

– I saw a big, big sea turtle swimming just about 20 cms away from me (I think this was the highlight of my summer so far… amazing feeling)

– I went to a couple of places away from Athens that I hadn’t planned months and months ago (as I normally do) and had a really great time

– I took my oldest nephew (almost 10 years old now) for a swim and a chat. I learnt a lot of stuff.

– I drank real cow milk – the real thing, not the thing that comes in a carton – didn’t really like it to be honest 😛

– I tried to do the wheel. For the first time in my life. Yes, that’s right. It worked! Perhaps not too well, but I don’t care, at least I tried it!

– I swam and dived (apparently both “dived” and “dove” are correct) in an underwater cave… Scary at first, purely amazing just seconds later…

There will be more to come…
