How is everybody's life going? Some life updates

by parasurv

This is just some update I wanted to share with you. Warning this post might be long...

I just wanted to write a post. I remember when blogs were basically diaries for some of the happenings in people's life. Then we got ads and money involved, SEO and all that crap. Now blogs are for clicks. Frak that. I want to write about what I feel, what I know may help others.

So this evening I tried the Terminator: The Future Shock demo, which is one of my favorite first person shooter of all time.

I am a sports fan since I was like 8 or 9 years young. It's a family tradition really, everybody had there favorites almost in any sport, no matter if it was in the country or foreign.

This is my short ramblings about some of the feelings I have as a sports fan, whose favorite teams are really far far away.

Best speech about veganism

by parasurv

It was about 6,5 years ago when I first saw Gary Yourofsky's famous speech. The title was something similar, like 'The Best Speech ever. While initially I didn't turn vegan at the time, for outside reasons, that speech made a lasting impression on me.

Almost a year ago I finally made the move, and become vegan in October. I found a guy, who is an excellent activist and voice for the animals. His name is Earthling Ed. He is so calm when he is doing street activism, or recently when Infowars interviewed him. I honestly don't know how he does it. He is an inspiration for all of us.

How I started my 'Couch to 5k' journey

by parasurv

This is my start of - hopefully - a series of posts I will dedicate to my 'Couch to 5k experience.

I was always overweight throughout my life, and I've never thought I could lose weight on my own. I was never a person who moved a lot, especially since I got interested in computers early in my life.
