This post will be the saddest one I’ve done so far.
There is a number of reasons I’ve missed a real father figure in my life, not many men have been around when I guess a growing little boy would have needed such a figure around. I’m not going into that now, but just as a intro to the next chapter.
In the beginning of this blog I told you how my life is filled with totally crazy events and have always been that way. I know, it can’t be just a coincidence that much bizarre and crazy stuff happens to the one and the same dude. There must be something else too. Anyway, there is one man, that I think, will make my life look just as a normal, boring, everyday life, I’ll call him “AH”.
I got crazy memories where I was just maybe 10 years old, and he took me to the woods to shoot with a magnum .357, we were working on the fields and he let me drive a real and big tractor, even if I was just maybe five years old. He took me fishing, told me crazy stories and made the world look like a big adventure. At my uncles funeral we were laughing at all crazy things we could remember what the strange uncle did. We agreed that it’s easier and funnier to remember the good and fun stuff of the deceased.
“AH” have had some big car accidents and walked out from them alive. He have come down from the sky in a airplane and walked out of that alive, he had cancer and survived and a lot of other similar events. Nothing ever killed him and I almost started to believe that he’s un-killable.
I sold my VFR to a INFOSEC dude, same day he picked the VFR up, maybe even around the same time, ~300km north, “AH” was in he’s last accident with a motorcycle. He did not walk out of that accident alive anymore. Somehow, I thought that this can’t be, a motorcycle accident killed him. But, to be honest, that’s the way I think we all who knew him, believed he will pass on to the next adventure.
I’m sure he’s advice to me would be “get a grip of yourself, this is how life works and now it was my time to go”. So, I try to get a grip of myself and remember all the fun stuff. That’s what I want to remember. I believe he had a lot to do with the way I steer my life on the bumpy and crazy roads.
Long story short. You are equipped with that personality you got, with the skills you got and all the characteristics you got. It’s not good or bad, that’s just you. You may not fit in everywhere, you may have hard times more than once – but remember – enjoy this life, this adventure, all this. You get only this one chance to be here, now, with these people, feelings, surrounding and everything else. Enjoy life. Enjoy yourself. Enjoy this crazy, interactive, totally bizarre adventure called life. Listen to this life, feel the cold and warm, touch something and realize you are touching something and feel it. Really notice you are alive! Because that WILL change one day, maybe tomorrow.
I have this little company of my own, you can call it a “startup”. Got a few small ideas, a few mid-size ideas and a few king-size ideas. One absolutely monstrous idea that will change the way everyone use computers. Last Thursday I went to a TEKES event called “innovation Thursday”. They spoke only about public funding in Finland and EU. Now I’m sure, I need to apply for public funding, because one of my ideas would qualify for H2020 EU funding and that’s just .. big.. Maybe the most promising in the public funding is that the startup or idea must concentrate on growth, and that exactly what I’m interested in. I don’t mind being rich, but I already got everything I could ask for life to give me, so in a way, I’m super rich already. What I want, is to develop my idea to a working way of life in the technology-business.
Ok, so I got my VFR sold. It was not as easy to let it go as I thought it would be. I think I sold it much too cheap. But now, after the accident, I want to sell my other custom motorcycle too. I’ll let the worst shock pass and then I’ll check this option again.
Bye bye VFR, you are absolutely the best “jack of all trades” I’ve tried. Hope the new owner will be nice to you.
“Elastinen” Private concert
I’m not too fond of Elastinens music, but I still attended a competition where I could win a avec ticket to hes private concert. Funny, but I won, and got the tickets. Elastinen have also been a judge in the finnish tv-show “The voice of Finland”, which is one of my favourite tv-shows (as you maybe know if you follow my Twitter feed).
I must say, I was surprised about the stage-energy Elastinen had. If I’d like hes music too, I probably would be a super-fan. Now I just love the energy and artistic personality Elastinen got. There is some songs too that I admit are good.
