Keeping busy with BIG plans

cropped-mind.jpg

As you may have noticed, I have had other things on my mind lately. Various projects I’ve been working on and my wordpress blog here isn’t getting the attention it deserves.

I appoligize to all you none existant audience that might be somewhat interested in what I have to say.

So my point is that, even thought I’ve had this blog set up for about 9 months now, which I can’t even believe its been that long. I’m not ready to let it go, in fact, i’d like to keep it alive forever since really, it’s my first step into many things. My first website published for the world to see, my first blog ever, my first ever writing that I ever decided to do in a none educational atmosphere, the first place I shared more thoughts and actions than with any other person (other than my wife) and a couple more firsts I can’t think of right now.

This blog was a gateway into the internet that has had actual views, comments and I really appreciate and cherish that. I can’t possibly let this place go just because I’ve started something that has grown much faster and with a different end goal.

I’ve been working on HealthGainCenter.Com for the past 2 and half weeks and i’ve been hitting it hard. I’ve invested in my own domain and I spend everyday looking for ways to make it better, something I have not done here on My Thought Pattern.

What I might of forgotten is that this place is actually suppose to be MY THOUGHT PATTERN! So I do feel obliged to share it with you.

I created HealthGainCenter.com since its something I became pationate about, and something I figured I would have no problem writing about since its constantly on my mind. Its also a place where I can share my struggles with gaining weight and at the same time, help out those people who can relate. I plan to grow this website to encompass alot of different aspects of health, and I don’t think I’ll ever be short on ideas with something so valuable to our life.

If you have a minute, I urge you to come take a look and even drop a comment or suggest on the website to let me know if you agree or if I should improve something.

Just today I did a big overhaul of the appearance of the website, hopefully its for the best.

I will be dropping more updates as I go onto you guys.

Thank you!

My new website is LIVE!

healthgaincenter

Hello everyone, I’ve been working on a side project for some time now. As you have noticed, I haven’t been posting too many posts, but I have a good reason for it. I have been working on a new Web-Site for some time now and it finally began its life.

HealthGainCenter.com

Its in the early stages of devellopment but I like where its going and plan on putting alot of hors into it every week.

If your reading this then you might have a minute to come check it out. Maybe leave a comment or suggestion on something that needs improvement here.

What made me start this website is related to my last post and my last blog I created called The Cash Farm. i’ve been searching for ways to earn with the help of the internet for some time now. I believe I’ve found exaclty what I was looking for and I couln’t be happier.

It all started with me stumbling onto Wealthy Affiliates.

I’ve seen it before but didn’t really pay much attention. I just recently stumbled upon it again and saw that they now offer a 0$ plan. No credit cards, no sensitive information to give out. Just join and see what they are all about.

I was pleasantly surprised. They do try to up sell their premium plan but in all honesty, its worth the coin, the beauty is thatthey give 7 days of premium status so you can see what its all about, after that they cut off you extra privileges but you still have the starter account and its extremely helpfull for anyone starting out.

What really sold me was the huge community and the amount of people working on similar goals willing to help and motivate you along the way. People post their first hard earned dollars and explain how they got to it. The motivation is whats worth the time to take a look for yourself.

If making money online is a goal of yours, then I suggest you come take a look here.

You still need to put time and effort towards it but with their tools and help, it makes it alot more achievable. You get 2 free websites to work with, different seo tools and help from the whole community as well as the experts who created Wealthy Affiliates.

Anywho, thanks for ready and I’ll try to keep the posts up since I will be working mostly on my other site now.

It was meant to be…

meant

So its been about 3 months since i’ve returned to Russia. All my paperworks good to go. I can stay here for 3 years without issue. I love it here. Even after 3 months, I feel like this is my home. I can’t say I fot in 100%….YET! But I know its just a matter of time. Yeah its hard to know your friends are on the other side of the planet. Most of my family’s back in Canada but hey, they chose to take me away from here at an age when I was too young to make my own decisions. In no way do I blame them for doing that and in fact, I think it was for the better. I got to learn 3 languages with relative ease instead of 1, I believe i’m more openminded, but who knows… I could just be lying to myself…

I was born in Ukraine, my parents born in Russia but moved to Ukraine for work. Situation back then wasn’t the same to what it is now. Technically I was born in the USSR and my parents dipped out when it was about to fall apart. 25 years later the countries in turmoil. Gotta say, that was a good call on their part.

Still a iffy subject to talk about. Whos right and whos not in Ukraine. All things aside, their current “democratically elected president”  isn’t a good choice to run that country. But thats just my opinion, influenced alot by what my grandparents and family of our close friends who also live in Ukraine. Propaganda’s being played out on both sides but thats just the natural course of things these days. To get a glimpse of the truth, you’re forced to read from mutlple sources from both sides of the front line. Take in real time accounts and peoples reasons to act a certain way, and even then you can’t be sure what you think you know is right. That honestly scares me and what really drives me to dig as deep as I can for that glimmering piece of whats really going on.

All I hope for is the blooshed to end, but sadly, it doesn’t seem to be dying down anytime soon. Too many hidden agendas.

Hopefully well get some more insight as time goes by.

So back to me and living in Russia. Love it here, everythings going good and i’m being pleasantly surprised every day.

What has me hooked on the most right now, is how people treat you. As a first impression, everyone seems very cold and uninterested in you and your problems. you probably won’t get many smiles walking past anyone in malls or on the streets. But the amazing thing happens when you meet someone and become “friends”. You can pretty much say you become family. The way you get treated changes drastically and you feel like that person would lose a limb for you if it came down to it. There doesn’t seem to be much of a middle ground and that, I find, is amazing. The help I received from someone here who was a friend of a friends brothers friend was immense. I can honsetly say I wouldn’t be in this country right now if it wasn’t for their help.

I’d like to be part of that.

Peaches. My favorite fruit got an update for the better.

  
Summers been a peach.
More precisely a Saturn peach.

Or doughnut peach.

Or a flat peach.

Whichever way you call it, I believe we can all agree the new and improved peach is great.

Different from the usual but much sweeter and I enjoyed it, much like my summer.
But like all good things, they come to an end. Not to say that something better might not come up but this period of warm weather and somewhat less responsibility is done with for the year.

My lineup for the the next 6 months include my full time job, first year economics degree, freelancer translating work, and another minor income/fun activity. I will be busy, but what I’m hoping to improve is my time managing skills. What I find I lack in is just that. What better way to learn than to put myself in that situation.
All I can say is good luck to Me!

Today is THE DAY!

Today is the day,

Today is the day I can say.

HUUURRRRAAAYYY!!!!!

About 8 months ago, the process began. My fight to stay in Russia began, and was I ever the underdog in this situation. At times I thought they made the process impossible on purpose. It seemed like the country tried to do what it can to get me to give up the idea of getting my temporary residence. I admit some mistakes where made by me misunderstanding and failing to dig deeper for information, but thanks to some people who genuinely put their efforts into making sure everything gets done, I can finally relax (barely) but at least have that off of my shoulders and not have my wife worry about me leaving her for another 3 months. I can finally concentrate on moving forward without worrying about being stunned again.

I genuinely like this country no matter whats being said and how things are being handled. The peoples attitude mirror a very realistic and human way of being. I feel at home here.

I might not have any friends here but my wife is all I need and I’m meeting new people and slowly making connections even thought I’ve never been one to do so. It helps that I work with people now instead of with milk, in a warehouse. Milk has its percs, I enjoyed being able to get lost in my thoughts and just work throught my shift but wokring with people is more satisfying. Human to human relations force me to work on my speech and my people skills.

Forces me to put aside being shy.

One of my worst qualities.

Being shy.

I am getting better though. I can see the progress and i’m liking it. I think this blog is also in a way that I work with that even though I don’t really have to speak to anyone face to face, I still get things out. I must say, I read my posts and it looks like I have horrible structure and my thoughts spread into multiple unrelated branches.

But hey, its a learning process. I just hope it’ll also improve.

Summer of change.

This summers been very eventful and full of change. 

I find myself getting comfortable with routine since it brings stability and the possibility to plan out future endeavors with a bit more ease. But it doesn’t make me happy. Maybe because I fail to move forward quickly enought to make it count. Whatever the reason, I welcome change. The challenge to start fresh and with a different perspective brings about competitive and exhilorating emotions which I crave. 

I’ve always been a type to take risks, but now that I’m married and have to think of my partner into all my actions puts a twist on what I would normally do. By no means am I complaining since I cherish my better half but I find my thoughts need a bit of tweaking since I guess I’m still not used to this feeling after a year. 

I’m currently in an environment different from where I have been for most of my life and I truly enjoy it, but I am having trouble taking the next step. Seeing a concrete path to take in terms of career.

I’ve decided to try something new. I’m currently employed thanks to my new family who’ve helped enormously in my whole move to Russia, but to stop here and not push further would be a grave mistake I can’t let happen.

In the next couple of weeks, my goal will be to get a second job, which I can enjoy and profit from on the side.

As I write this, those emotions I crave start to build up and tells me I’m on the proper path.

Is my Wrong your Right?

On the plane heading to Canada from Russia. Have to say this might be the best time to write since there really isn’t anywhere I can go or anything else I can do. Everything seems bleak and it feels like sadness and depression is just around the corner. Leaving my wife for three months… Feels like its going to be a test, or just plain torture… I miss her already…

I’ve heard of people wanting to have breaks from their second half. There have been times when it would pop up in my mind after a good fight, yet when I see that now its actually happening, against my wish, every ounce of my body isn’t having it. I love my wife to death and its hard to bear the fact that I’m leaving her alone for three months. Yes she has her family, and yes she has some friends, and yes she has our cats to keep her company but I know deep down i’m the only one who can understand her and accept her the way she is, and I know its the same for me.

3 weeks ago I left to Canada for 5 days to get some documents I failed to legalize before heading there in december. Even tho I knew I was coming back, it still broke my heart to be half way around the world from her.
3 months is something I choose not to comprehend right now.
Don’t get me wrong, I am attached to my wife and I will miss her dearly, but what hurts is knowing she is going to be struggling by herself for three months. I have no pity for myself and I do what has to be done when I see a better future for my loved ones. But it isn’t easy.
Going back to my old job for some time. The pay isn’t bad since I’ve been a slave there for about 5 years of my life now. With the current economy in Russia and the difference between the Rouble and Canadian dollar, it will be a much needed boost to our budget. No matter the situation, I try to concentrate on the positive aspects. It will help us out for the next 6 months and relieve some financial burdens that seem to currently affect us. This brings me back to the fact that everything happens for a reason. There are always 2 sides or more to a situation, the trick is picking them out from behind the dark veil of BS.`

I have a bit of a moral dilemma when it comes down to situations like this. I tend to think of other peoples situations and how much more different and extreme they are compared to mine. As a result I feel like I shouldn’t be upset, but better yet relieved that this is the extent of my situation compared to lets say someone who sent their family on a boat to escape the situation in Syria, not knowing if they’ll ever make it to the shores, If someone on board will cause harm to them after you’ve spent your life savings to put them on that ship. Not knowing if the ship will get attacked by the notorious pirates who feast on the mischief of others, and if by some miracle a storm or faulty ship doesn’t become the reason for their demise, the people and or governing body where they land on rejects them or worse.
Is it wrong of me to think of situations like that to put mine into perspective. Is it wrong to pretty much make myself feel better on someone else’s misfortunes. I come across thoughts like these fairly often, and i’m not sure if its ok or not. I have arguments for both sides. I consider myself to have good morals but once again, what I consider might differ completely from what you consider, and whats to say your thoughts on it are wrong? Is it the majority that rules? Or is it the select few who go beyond the common thought who are more than right.

Some thoughts on this would be welcome.
Don’t hesitate to comment or write to me directly.
