Stuck in the Lab

Where I should be now (Amari, Crete), but guess what, I am not!

Here I am, another Sunday finds me at the university doing experiments. Yeah yeah! And the best part of the this drama is that my departure from here won't be earlier than 9 o'clock. 9 in the evening, yes you read it correctly. The good news are that the day after today is the one with the "Congregation for Game of Thrones and some pure madness at my place". More on that "event" tomorrow. What a nice thing to wait for, it exorcises Monday's curse as a day and as existence generally.

In other (good) news, I decided to make a Pinterest account (it's here in case you want to follow), like wow dude we have one for more than a year now. I know. However, the main reason of not having one isn't that I don't collect inspiration in small or large doses whenever/ from wherever I can. A fact that can be proved by the several inspo folders in my hard disk. It's because I do not really like to be active in too many social networks. It makes me nervous. Can you discern a little OCD here?

You may say that: "each platform serves another (sacred) purpose, which makes the whole online experience of yours much more easier". Yes and no. I can't stand the: Oh dude this thought so clever, it goes straightly to my twitter dashboard, and hey what a cool post to share and like, oh and I want to pin this and this too, and retweet them and share them and like them again. Let's reblog that in my tumblr too. Is that a new google+ follower?

So, no. I can't live in this chaotic madness. I have a life too. Oh gods whom am I trying to convince? It's Sunday and I am at the university, to which life of mine am I reffering? Anyway, my need for ergonomy and comfort "made" me make an account. And I am finding Pinterest such a great tool for organizing your ideas. But hey, what about you? Do you find it difficult too to living between too many social network accounts?

And now the bestest news! On August I will be at the PukkelpopPukkelpop, the music festival in Belgium. OH YEAH! There are still available tickets for anyone who may be interested too. Has anyone of you gone to the Pukkelpop before or to any other multi-day music festival to give one or two good advices?

These, back to work now! I hope that you have a great (remaining) Sunday!
