Light & Power

"I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." - Thomas A. Edison

I have so many thoughts crammed in to my head. First of all, school is about to end so I'm constantly thinking about exams and what I should be doing next. Whether should I go to the Defence Forces or university next, I'm not sure yet. Yesterday, I visited Tallinn University of Technology with Kermo and the event that took place in there that day helped me to clear my head a little bit. I have three major choices for my Bachelor studies. The first one is Electrical Power Engineering and Mechatronics which I'm afraid is too damn difficult for me. I love physics but it's not one of my strongest sides. I want to deal with energy problems in future and especially I'd like to make progress with green energy technology. That's where my second choice seems to fit in - Environmental, energy and chemical engineering. It's more about sustainable energy but still the first one manages to impress me more. The third option is Business Information Technology. That's my oldest choice and a year ago I was certain that this would be my choice, now it seems a bit boring for me. Anyway, the day was great. We walked around the campus, had a chat with some students and met up with our other friends.

BEST Estonia 

If there is Kermo, there is light and power

Because of these delicious pizzas, we were almost late for our second lecture

BMW i3 - unfortunately, test drive wasn't an option

Last week, it was my teacher's birthday and as we brought him a cake last year, we wanted to celebrate the birthday this year with eating too because then we don't have to do math. Ain got 43 but when someone asked how old he is then he answered that he's having his 18th birthday's 25th anniversary party.

43 - ain't Ironic?

Well, my weekend was rad. I had a choir camp and besides singing, we had sauna and many more "activities". Sauna was awesome - we sang and after first round of sauna, we wanted to go swimming but we didn't see the ice at first and Lars fell right onto it. It was crazy! The following morning our conductor/teacher told us that we were too quiet at night, she was worried if we partied at all. Well, she wasn't in the same house as we were.

Furthermore, I visited my hometown's new cinema with my friend Ketter. We watched Get out and it was okay, casual thriller in my opinion. Mark arrived from Austria and brought me Austrian beer. I watched a series called Harley and the Davidsons. The intro song in there was amazing - listen it and have a great day.

Top notch

"The flame that burns twice as bright burns half as long." - Lao Tzu

It's really weird to think that high school is almost over. Right now it's pretty much my last term with real classes and stuff. A month or so and I'll already have exams frightening me. Anyway, the point I wanted to reach here was that the main reason I haven't posted recently is my desire to focus on my studies more. It's almost over, it's scary. But still, self-centered as I am, I'm going to write this post and you're gonna hear a lots of me-talking as always.
Football section: Champions League - Barcelona vs PSG. The game was awesome. I was at Merili's watching the game and for fun predicted the match to end with 6-1 with Barcelona winning. It really happened. Barca lost their previous match to PSG 0-4 and the comeback was just fantastic. 2 penalties, 1 freekick and the final finishing touch by Sergi Roberto - top notch.

Barcelona - PSG

Now some school topics. Like I said before, school is kinda my main sh*t right now. I've been studying physics mainly but a few days ago we had a career day at school. We had to pick three workshops. I'm gonna talk about the last workshop which was my favorite. It was about selling books in the US - Southwestern Advantage (first picture in the post). I've always admired people who's main goal is to succeed in life, do as much as they can with their "limited" time. They talked about budgeting, setting goals and making difficult decisions. Three of us including me got a gift for being active at the lecture. The gift was a book "Rikkaks saamise õpik" by Jaak Roosaare (in Eng. "Getting rich handbook"). I'm already familiar with the content of the book because I've read a similar writing by a different author but I'll look into that masterpiece soon too.

I'd like to thank the two lecturers Rait and Sander for this amazing gift

Basics of nuclear physics

Even though I didn't want to talk much about my social life in this post, I still need to mention that my friend Kristo threw one hell of a birthday party yesterday. The moment we gave Kristo his wonderful present with Kermo, we saw how delightful the little birthday boy was. The gift was a drunkard's starter pack - we only wish you well, Kristo!
