Nedelja #2 / Week #2 - The Wedding Crashers

Mogu da se potrudim barem dve nedelje uzastopce da iskucam nesto :) Google Analytics kaze da postoje ljudi koji citaju pa ne ide da razocaram svoje obozavatelje :)

I can try to type out something for at least two weeks in a row :) Google Analytics says there are people who read so I don't want to disappoint my fans :)


Ova druga nedelja je prozujala jos brze nego prva. Ne kapiram bas kako je uspela toliko brzo da prodje, ali dobro. Treba mi jos malo vremena da se fino uklopim na poslu i provedem vise vremena radeci nesto nego kopajuci okolo kako da uradim. Interesantno je, samo vrlo intenzivno. Meni licno je najveci problem sto stalno u glavi imam tajmer koji odbrojava do 12. avgusta i osecam kako bi trebalo vise da radim jer nema vremena za gubljenje.

Van posla, proslog vikenda je obidjeno parce San Franciska. Zapravo, otisli smo na Angel Island da vozimo bicikle. Odvukla sam lose vreme iz Bostona u Kaliforniju tako da smo malo iskisli, ali sve u svemu, beshe zabavno.

Danas nas je Fejsbuk vodio u Alkatraz. Malo sam razocarana jer sam ocekivala da atmosfera unutra bude mnogo depresivnija. Cini mi se da su pokusaji restauracije i transformacije u turisticku atrakciju malo ubili autenticnost. Posle toga smo imali epski photo scavenger hunt po San Francisku. Scavenger hunt je igra gde organizatori daju listu objekata/stvari koje treba slikati/pokupiti. Tim s najvise pokupljenih pobedjuje. Danasnja varijanta je bila slikanje po San Francisku sa stvarima koje idu od klasicnih tipa Golden Gate do malo neuobicajenih kao sto je policajac na konju. Najkul deo zbog koga i entry ima naslov "The Wedding Crashers" je deo kada je nas tim skidao s liste stavku slikanja s zenom u vencanici. U jednoj od ulicica kroz koje smo prolazili je neki taze bracni par radio profi slike. Mi im naravno upali na vencanje i zdipili mladu na 2 minuta da se slikamo :)

Sto se drugih novina tice, konacno se izvlacim iz Santa Clare u Mountain View. Dve nedelje 50-minutnog putovanja na posao su bile dovoljne. Osim toga, primljena sam na MIT-ev masters, tako da ostajem u Bostonu jos barem dve godine :) Nije da je to neki podvig, ali, eto, da se spomene. 

Moji ocni kapci stupaju u strajk zbog prekovremenog rada, tako da se ovaj blog nablizio kraju. Slike Alkatraza cu da postavim u toku naredne nedelje i ubacim u blog za narednu nedelju. Tol'ko za danas :)


This second week has zoomed by even faster than the first one. I don't quite get how it passed so fast, but oh well. I still need some time to properly fit in at work and spend more time doing something than digging around how to do it. It is interesting, but very intense. Personally, my biggest problem is that I constantly have a mental timer that counts down until August 12th and I feel I should work harder because there is no time to lose.

Outside of work, last weekend, we visited a piece of San Francisco. Actually, we went to Angel Island to ride bikes. I dragged the bad weather from Boston to California so we got a bit wet in the rain, but it was fun.

Today, Facebook took us to Alcatraz. I'm a bit disappointed because I expected much more depressing atmosphere on the inside. It feels like the attempts to restore the place and transform it into a tourist attraction killed the authenticity. After that, we had epic photo scavenger hunt in San Francisco. The tasks ranged from classical stuff like Golden Gate to a bit more unusual like a policeman riding a horse. The coolest part which is the reason this entry is titled "The Wedding Crashers" is the part when our team checked off taking a photo with a woman in a wedding dress. In one of the alleys we passed through, there was a freshly married couple taking professional photos. Of course, we dropped into their wedding and stole the bride for a couple of minutes to take a picture :)

In other news, I am finally getting out of Santa Clara to Mountain View. Two weeks of 50-minute commute were enough. Besides that, I got into MIT's Masters program so I'm staying on Boston for at least two years :) It's not a feat, but I should mention it.

My eyelids are starting a strike because of overtime work, so this entry is close to the end. I'll post the pictures of Alcatraz next week and insert them in the next week's blog. That's it for today :)

Ne znam kako se tebi čini, al' je meni Frisko mnogo zanimljiviji od Aranđelovca. Sve je mnogo toplije i ležernije nego kod južnog komšije.
