Blog no.1: Introduction to a big journey.

Dear curious(probably bored) reader,

this is my first of, hopefully, one of many blogs to come. A reason why I'm doing this blog is to give my concerns and my comedic approach to certain situations that occur during my life. This is a bit introductory but since you're reading this, you could spare some time to finish it. If you won't have a nice day sir! If you will, welcome and enjoy!

First things first, my name is Stelios and I'm greek-cypriot in case you're wondering what kind of alien name that is. It doesn't translate into English, although in the movie 300, Leonidas did call his soldier Stelios(the one who threw the spear towards Xerxes) with a slightely different accent than the greek equivalent. Anyways, if you know any Greeks or Cyrpiots they are probably named something like Andreas or Maria so that wouldn't matter (creativity at its finest). My parents are in Cyprus and I study computer engineering in Athens at the moment, living in an appartment with my 3 siblings. It's like I'm revisiting my childhood again, though now being mature enough not to cut a hole through my sisters' bedroom door after an intense childish argument. It's still rather difficult though. I started to realise how much I owe my parents for taking care of me for so long. Of course they still do, but in not in a traditional sense.

To continue, I'm 18 and a few months old but I try to distance myself from the general behaviour of my age group, not sure why. By general behaviour meaning the #SWAG #YOLO part of our modern society which I find particurarly offensive to humankind and our generation. Maybe I just don't want to go with the flow, or maybe I'm just a dumb hipster. Sure thing I'm not a tool of the modern trends for the most part, still listening to the music I grew up with, but discovering more and more great songs as I get deeper into it. Personally, I want to look back to myself when I grow older and be confident that I made the right choices. But hey, only time can tell, right?

If I would define myself, I would say I'm a lazy, romantic dreamer. One of my greater strenghts, however, is the fact that I try being nice to everybody. Whatever actions they take I don't judge, unless I have all the sides of their stories covered. I try reasoning with the ones that are worth discussing and ingoring any insults thrown at my face (being a gamer that happens quite a lot, actually). It's rather funny how many arguments could be solved if one of those arguing was reasonable. And that's why my closest group of friends are actually friends I've had since I was 6 years old, not counting my best friend whom I met at the age of 2. My biggest flaw? I would say the combination of ambitiousness and laziness, combined with my need to appeal to everybody. In other words, I have very high goals for my life, but being as lazy as I am, I will not achieve them unless I take action as soon as possible. And the other flaw I mentioned, is that I try too hard make a good impression to everyone, sometimes losing my true identity to do so. All these can be fixed though, and I'm positive they will. Hey! The blog is a big step forward, I've been meaning to start writing since a few years ago.

So that's the basic information about myself, hopefully you found some of it interesting enough to reach this point of my blog! No worries, you will definetely hear from me soon.

My regards,
Stelios Zesiades.
