Easter, just like Christmass, is a holiday I love spending home with my family. I know a lot of folk who enjoy going to vacations and whatnot… but I am just not that type. I don’t know why though. It is most likely because as a child, my entire family would gather home and celebrate it together. It’s just how I was raised. And, you know what they say – if it ain’t broken, don’t fix it! Those are the words I follow when it comes to spending holidays with my family.
Even though we are not gathering in the same (huge) numbers like we did a couple of years back, both Easter and Christmass are still special occasions in my household. This year, I was making dinner for 12 people including myself. It was amazing! If you are wondering what I made, it was a giant meatloaf finely spiced up with cheese and garlic… needless to say – everyone loved it and I got a lot of praises from my cousins!
But the meal was not what made this Easter special… My meatloaf was not the high point of a wonderful evening. Nope! You see, my cousin Derek actually proposed to his girlfriend Amanda in front of all of us. Best of all – he did not tell a single soul. Needless to say, we were all amazed by the outcome.
Of course, Amanda said yes and our Easter celebration turned into a special party afterward. There was a lot of alcohol involved too, even more than I’d like to admit… But still, it was for a good reason – my youngest cousin just got a fiancee in front of my very eyes… If that is not a good reason to celebrate and drink a few cup of wine, then I really don’t know what is!
If you did not read the About Me or Home pages, then you probably don’t know that I am a huge football fan… or how Americans would address it – soccer. Well, news flash – I am a huge fan of Manchester United. It’s the only club in the world that I am really passionate about. Ever since my kindergarten days, I was watching Manchester United games. I adored Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs. Needless to say, they were my childhood idols. Even though I tried playing football, with my 2 left feet I could not make it past the amateurs.
Luckily, I don’t need any skill to watch games so I just stuck to that. Today, I’d like to share with you the frustrations I had while watching the second leg of Europa League quarterfinal matchup. We were playing against a strong Belgian side Anderlecht. The first leg was nothing special (we played in Belgium) but we managed to get a solid 1-1 result.
Today at Old Trafford, things started amazingly well for us with Mikitharyan scoring the first goal. Unfortunately, after that our game totally crashed and we ended up conceding a silly goal. After the regular 90 minutes, the score was the same (1:1) like the first leg which meant we’re up for extra time.
The first half of extra time wasn’t anything special. Luckily, our players started playing a bit better in the second extra time half and their efforts were awarded a goal from Rashford. It was not the best of chances but Rashford took it perfectly after a couple of bad misses earlier.
After all, I’m still satisfied with us qualifying for the semi-finals. Hopefully, we’ll get that one last trophy we’re missing from our collection… and of course, automatic qualification to Champions League is just the icing on the cake!
After using Yamaha Aerox R for almost 2 years now, I’ve finally decided to spice up my daily commute to work. Don’t get me wrong guys, I have nothing against Aerox. On the contrary, I love it! I’m a big fan of powerful scooters… motorcycles – not so much. That’s because I’m way more comfortable sitting on a scooter than riding a fully-fledged bike. It’s just a personal preference although I can already tell some of you judging me. What can I do, I’m sort of a pussy when it comes to those things…
Anyways, as I’ve already mentioned above, I got myself a new mean of transportation to work and back. It’s a hoverboard. You see, I’m usually not that tech savvy but I just could not resist this time… I purchased a hoverboard. And not just any hoverboard for that matter! I got the EpikGo Sport Plus that looks (and performs) absolutely amazing! It goes as fast as 20 km/h, but I’m not going anywhere near that top speed. I’m usually just casually strolling around 10-15 which is perfect for my needs.
Another thing that makes this hoverboard perfect for my needs is its long lasting battery. I have around 5 kilometers to my workplace and another 5 on the way back. When I get home, the battery is somewhere around 30-40% which is awesome. I can even go grocery shopping afterward without having to charge it. It sports an elegant design with gorgeous red accents on the wheels. Without doubts – I love it!
So yeah, that’s about it when it comes to this post. I wanted to share it with you guys since I did not have anything better to write about. Anyways, thank you for reading this and I hope I did not bore you to death. As you can see, I am still pretty new to this whole blogging thing so don’t be mad if I didn’t do something right.
