My First Steps in Spanish
HOLA! Como estas?
I happened to have a real necessity to learn one more foreign language in the near future, as i've made a weird decision to become a student. AGAIN. I feel quite silly bceause of that, but anyway, it's too late to give it up, that's why i'm creating this goal. Spanish seems quite beautiful to me, and also i've learnt that it's one of the easiest languages to learn.
I've made a decision to write posts in English, which will help me improve somehow my English and also, as i want to connect my life with English as much as it's possible, describing things in English will be much more helpful and not as usual or even boring as typing in Russian. As for me, of course. But there is a little problem - even though there are a lot of sourses and ways to learn fo...
Make a plan every working day morning.
In my thesis writing, there are lot's of different sub tasks and often I get lost not knowing what to do first, what to do quickly and what in-debth ... or what to do at all. Sometimes, it all seems like a huge mountain that I have to scale somehow. It's overwhelming. I've always made plans, but most of them were rather wishes than realistic. So, my time management skills still can improve. For helping myself with that, I'll do two things: First, I'll set up a realistic plan for this whole last year of thesis writing. Second is, that each morning I will make a schedule for the day.
The goal is to make a plan every morning during the week (Monday till Friday). The goal is not to keep to that plan nor even to work it all off. Only to make this plan, nothing more and nothing less. Th...
Move to New Zealand
I want to leave the homeland, which does not meet my requirements for civil liberties and safety. During this journey I will be accompanied by my awesome girlfriend, and we will be satisfied only when we find a new great place on the globe to live and work. Considering the rapid deterioration of the situation in our country, we should leave in the summer 2015.
So, we have opted for New Zealand (NZ) with its magnificent nature, healthy lifestyle, English as an official language, and brisk immigration policy. As none of us has chances to apply for immigration to NZ and we both have on illusions about finding a job from abroad, the only remaining way is Study to Work. Thus, this goal is limited by studying in NZ....

The exam is March 5th. I haven't yet really begun to study, nor even to read. There's 268 pages of textbook ahead of me. But I am smart, I can do it if I am disciplined.

Building good relationships with daycare providers
This will be an odd goal :) ...
I want to built good relationships with the nursery school teachers of my daugther. I know, this is partly beyond my control, but being an introvert I still want to try my best. The starting position is that I interact with anyone of them several times a week for a minute or so when I catch my daugther from daycare. Sometimes there is a little smalltalk, but it's all very impersonal. I want to build some kind of personal relationship, but I don't want to get on their nerves or to steal their precious time either.
So, I gave this project a little thought and I came up with some ideas on how to start building good relationships.
Note to myself:
- pay attention to a neat outward appearance
- one shor...

IGStat - приложение Android для пользователей Instagram: статистика, маркетинг, развлечение
Инстаграм (далее ИГ) достаточно большая и интересная по контенту и аудитории социальная сеть.
Мне самому, как активному пользователю, уже не говоря про тех, кто активно занимается маркетингом в ИГ, хотелось бы иметь здесь функции статистики и автоматизации. Я перепробовал много приложений для этого, пользуюсь одним из них на платной основе, и все же мне не хватает, есть желание сделать некоторые вещи по другому. А так же есть еще однa часть - развлекательная, которой я не видел еще нигде.
Даже больше чем другие социальные сети, ИГ эксплуатирует такие человеческие слабости как тщеславие, желание повыпендриваться и посоревноваться :) И мне кажется, последнее нужно развить: что если добавить дополнительные элементы геймификации? Я хочу создать алгоритм, который позволит оценива...
