20130630 End of the First Half of the Year

Hello people of the internet,

I'll let you in on a little secret. By now some people are aware that I have a little bit of OCD in formation. I love it when the 1st of any month is on Monday and you can know what day of the week it is by dividing the date in 7 and using what's left. Gotta love those. So, because of the last day of June is on Sunday, the fore-mentioned peculiarity is happening next month. Kinda cool! (no, it isn't, Anu. No, it isn't)

My first half of the 2013 ended on a cool day and a lot has happened for the last 6 months, of whose experience I would never forget. How was your last 6 months? And please let me know if you have an OCD, too.

Thank you for going through this with me,
Anu Harchu

I voted, have you?

Hello people of the internet,

If you think that I am writing this post to endorse anyone, you're wrong. So please continue reading.

Considering that the last couple of days in Ulaanbaatar was gloomy weather-wise, today was a sunny one. Though I personally like cool and gloomy weather, I hope the sun shining has encouraged you to get up from your bed early on this holiday and cast your vote for the Presidential candidate you prefer. If you haven't found time to get to your local voting booth yet, please go there before the casting hour is over.

Voting is not just having a day off and lounging around without any refreshments, because it's forbidden on the election day. It's about owning your rights and serving your responsibility at the same time. It's not only your right that you get to choose whoever that will represent you in the next 4 years in the international community, it's about you contributing to the democracy that is our society now and making the system work as efficiently as possible. It's better that you voted rather than bitching around later for that the one you wanted didn't get elector or so.

I understand that this year's candidates aren't as popular among the people as you would like (believe me, I've heard many people complaining that they are not just sharp enough), but that's not the reason to back down. You're a citizen of a democratic society, act like it (if you haven't already of course).

Until next time,
Anu Harchu

Freedom or Fear

Hello people of the internet,

I would love to say that a lot has changed since my last log, but I don't really think a lot has changed. The variable that has changed was that I graduated from college. I am still working full-time at the same place. Since I didn't have much class in the last semester, it has been just like as if I had already graduated from the beginning of this year.

I should feel liberated or lucky that I am a college-graduate now who has all the opportunities in life to take and so on. But I don't feel that way. I am more feared or numb, probably explains why I am usually categorized as less progressive. (boy, those sentences couldn't have more "I"s in them)

Hope that I am not alone and there are people out there who are as lost as I am at the moment, but also I hope that all of us will find our ways in the near future. May the odds be ever in your favour.

Love always,

Daft Punk ft. Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers | Song of the Day

The evening that I discovered the song (more like the video) via Indra was a magical one for many reasons. The one thing should be said is that this song was played nonstop for I-don't-know-how-many-times that evening.

Is the grooviness of 60's (or 70's I am not sure) is coming back in a full force or am I just an old fashioned person? And don't you think God is being unfair for Pharrell for his aging?

School is over

Hello everyone,

The state exams for finishing college is over. I gave my professional exam yesterday and gave my English exam on Monday. I've already received my results and pretty happy with it. All I have to do now is to wait until the graduation ceremony.

I might no longer have to go for school. (I hope I will though) Weird feeling, isn't it? How have you been doing for the last week? My last week started with One Way and ended with The Lemons.
