Nedelja #3 / Week #3 - Flying Deck of Awesomeness

It's just week 3 and I'm falling behind my blogging... For a change, English goes first this time.

Tek je treca nedelja, a ja vec zaostajem s blogovanjem... Za promenu, engleski ovog puta ide prvi.

Anyway, it sucks that I cannot talk about all the awesome stuff going on at work, but it is super-cool. I got my summer projects and they are pretty sweet. My mentor is ridiculously awesome so nothing to complain there.

In other news, I moved to Mountain View... finally. My commute is now half as long and there are actually things going around now. I was walking around today, got sunburnt, but it was worth it. The neighborhood where I'm now is nice, residential area. There are lots of Mexicans, so I hear Spanish more than English. I walked into a Spanish store without English labels so I have no idea what are the awesome pastries I ate today. Oh, just for the record, they were 60c a piece! I found a nice park for my after-work jogs. The best thing I found - a Yugoslavian flag (along with the five-pointed star!) completely randomly in Mountain View.

Cool destination of the week: Santa Clara Great America Amusement Park. I've never been on a real roller coaster before and I have had a fear of heights, but I tried hard. I epically succeeded not to pee my pants in fear... and not to be afraid most of the time. The Flying Deck scared the crap out of me when we were in the first line. The first left turn is so sharp and that's where the metal platform underneath the feet stop, so for a split of second you think something went wrong and you are going to fling off, straight to the ground. Seriously, for that moment, I was so convinced something went wrong. But, besides that, the ride was amusingly uncomfortable... unlike ride on a stupid pirate ship which I don't even want to think about. People are not meant to hang upside-down at those heights... There is a fine line between amusing fear and sheer terror. Anyway, these are the two highlight rides, but there were many others, super-fun. Oh... and cotton candy! I didn't eat cotton candy in all eternity and this was quite good one.

OK, I need to go to work tomorrow so I'll end the blog here. I was too lazy to sort out the photos... again, but I will get to do it soon.


Bezveze je sto ne mogu da pricam o svim fantasticnim stvarima na poslu, ali su super-kul. Dobila sam svoje projekte za leto i prilicno su kul. Moj mentor je fantastican, tako da nemam na sta da se zalim.

Preselila sam se u Mountain View... konacno. Sada mi treba upola manje vremena do posla i nesto se desava oko mene. Danas sam setala okolo, izgorela na suncu, ali je vredelo. Kraj gde sam sada je lep, stambeni. Nije bogataski, ali je lep. Ima dosta Meksikanaca tako da cesce cujem spanski nego engleski. Usla sam u spansku prodavnicu koja nema ni natpise na engleskom, tako da nemam pojma sta je odlicno pecivo koje sam jela danas. I da, kostaju 60c komad. Nasla sam fin park za trcanje posle posla. Najbolja stvar koju sam nasla - jugoslovenska zastava (sa sve petokrakom!) potpuno random u Mountain View-u.

Kul destinacija nedelje: Santa Clara Great America Amusement Park. Do sada se nisam vozila na pravom rollercoasteru i imam imala sam strah od visine, ali sam se potrudila. Uspela sam da se ne upiskim od straha... i da se ne plasim vecinom vremena. The Flying Deck me je super-isprepadao kad smo sedeli u prvom redu. Prvo skretanje levo je naglo i to je mesto gde prestaje da se vidi metalna platforma pod nogama, takoda sam za delic sekunde mislila da je nesto krenulo naopako i da samo ima da izletimo i zakucamo se u zemlju. Ozbiljno, tog trenutka sam bila potpuno ubedjena da je nesto krenulo naopako. Inace, osim toga, voznja je bila zabavno neprijatna... za razliku od glupog piratskog broda o kome ne zelim ni da razmisljam. Ljudi nisu stvoreni da vise naopacke na tim visinama... Postoji granica gde zabavni strah prestaje. U svakom slucaju, ovo su dve najupecatljivije voznje, ali i ostale su bile super-zabavne. I... secerna vuna! Nisam jela secernu vunu sto godina, a ova je bila prilicno dobra.

OK, moram da idem na posao sutra, tako da ovde prestajem s blogom. Mrzelo me da sortiram slike... opet... ali trebalo bi da to uradim uskoro. Dvojezicni blogovi su epski fejlovi... Skapiram da ne znam na kom jeziku gore pricam...
