In January I decided that at the end of each month this year, I’ll post a collage of six pictures here on my blog as part of this year-long “Six Reasons to Smile” series I’m trying out in 2016. As the end of February is near, yesterday I went through my photos and chose six previously unpublished photographs to make a cute collage.
Here are the reasons I smiled in February:
Another reason for my smiles was attending the TedxCluj2016 event last Saturday with some of my colleagues from work. TedxCluj is on the list of five events supported by NN Romania, a company that believes strongly in the power of inspiration to change things for the better.
The event’s theme this year was myth busting. It was categorized into five sessions, Me & Myths, Me & Work, Me & Tech, Me & My Body and Me & Society, with some of the topics busted being: Data is boring, Is one really more efficient if multitasking, Only rich people can afford a chauffeur, We all see the same reality, and Good parents sacrifice themselves.
There was also a Tech & Innovation expo which I found very interesting. There were booths with several 3D printers, wooden watches, 3D glasses and roller-coaster simulators (which I tried!), really cool headphones, they held some contest as well and there were several other goodies in store throughout the day. (You may have seen my Instagram photos from last weekend.)
Even though I think that the organizers could have approached better-prepared speakers for several of the topics, it was all in all a fun day!
Did you smile a lot this month? What were your reasons? In case you’ve also captured them on camera, I’d love to see!
