Tsu review - something different

Before joining on tsu.co I spend hours reading all the possible reviews i could find – and I finally signed in. Below I'm not writing what I've read but I will tell you my personal experience and what I think of it.

Comparison

Unlike other popular social media (SM) portals this one is not perfect and doesn't have all the features and useful apps like most popular ones have. This maybe a result of the short period of existence (launched November 2014). I’m sure that the look and the interface come mostly with the experience of the team and appreciated feedback, so the future will show.

But many things are making it unique and I’ll turn to that later.

Must say also that the speed is a big issue which will turn you over – but NO - just stick around and you'll be surprised from so many thing you’ll like (I started to hate this word, wonder why?)

While you are reading you'll probably ask “why should I sign in?" Well yeah I am a kind of person who wants’ to point the negative side first and try not to be subjective about things.



Socialization

Do you know what the main idea is when it comes to SM?
Sure you do! As you all know in the beginning Facebook was made for a university student’s – firstly for just ONE college (Harvard) in just ONE town (Boston) – The rest you know.
Today there is an ocean of SM, but I must admit that I haven’t experienced something similar. On TSU you'll be welcomed by numbers of soul mates which are spending their time and having fun like you do. With your first post you will be surprised how many of them will notice and say something about it. On my second day I received an friend request by Selena Gomez! (OK it was someone pretending or admiring her), but anyhow the vibe is so strong and worm.

          Popularity

I’m sure many of you are looking for audience (followers). This is the spot for you.
Unlike fake Selena, some of the official TSU users are 50 cent, LL Cool J and many other stars (even his majesty of Morocco). On my personal opinion the moving force are young artists which are showing their talent and socializing with the users. You can find musicians (@meresha), DJ’s, graphic designers, life teachers, bloggers (@TheTinyHouse), painters and much more. (I think one Good Witch asked me yesterday to be her friend J).
One ordinary guy @KevinHinkle post a quote which accumulated 20K+ comments on it – unbelievable! That guy is a TSU star.

          End

I must thank my mentor @LifeIsPix for the help he is giving and for the priceless advices. Oh yeah you must know that you can join only via invitation and that’s how the system works – which is fine by me.

OUPS did I mention that tsu.co is paying you for the activity and for your organic nature (read posts). Pretty cool, isn't it? In other words you don’t have to be Ellie Goulding and  receive 200K+ hearts in three days; you can simply be creative and achieve the same without singing J

Life question

When you have a life question - you need hell of a advice 


As decent parents I and my wife must think how we'll advise our daughter. She must choose a school for her study she must chose from a variety of life opportunities. Only one thought is blinking in my mind – PLEASE don't follow mine steps!

I'll come back to the roots of it. In my preschool age I haven't attended any kindergarten, mostly because my parents had the time and space to look after me and my one year younger sister. Now I'm not glad about that, but anyway I started school when I pushed a glass of water on our doorstep.
I think I was the dumbest kid in the class. I had no pre-knowledge except drawing (pretty good for my age). Not to mention the IT knowledge unlike children nowadays.  I bought my first PC when I started earning by myself.
I must say I didn't have any difficulty passing the eighth grades of primary school with good grades, although I haven't finished fifth grade because my family moved to a different country. Ok I finished high school and when thinking of college I always dreamed of studying my only passion - architecture.
In that time in lack of finances I made a compromise and signed on an interior design and furniture school - I will never regret it :-)
After finished studying and than ten years of working days passed by and NOW I can see that I really don't know a shit. On my 34 I started "studying” again.

I’ll thank Darren Rowse and Chris Garrett and their book which is leading me to a new way of thinking and interest. I started learning internet and all its possibilities. I feel like when I was in my school desk in First grade – DUMB. Blogging is basically my first exam. I hope that I’ll see you again on my finals and we will stick along whole life.

This is leading me to my point - In 15 years from now my daughter will have a life question. She will ask my advice and I'll be honest with her.

I’ll tell her this:

BE YOURSELF.
GRAB YOUR LIFE BE A GOOD BLOGGER OR VLOGGER OR WHATEVER MAKES YOU HAPPY AND FREE. SHARE YOUR IDEAS AND QUALITIES WITH THE WHOLE WORLD BE GOOD IN WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND ENJOY.

my diet

Basically I hate diets and recipes for fat burning, shaped ass, top model look etc. I don't want to starve, don't want to calculate what did I eat today, is it way over my daily diet... In this post I'll write about way of life.

As every ordinary family - we discussed our healthy life, argue over types of ingredients we buy every day and stuff like that. In fact I was the one that argue. I used to eat - what I like, - never thinking what is good (read healthy) and what is bad. I must admit - I enjoy eating. Diskussions with my wife started to annoy me - big time. As a result of that, I started googling, watching, reading, and started learning more and more about vegan and vegetarian way of life.

I woke up early one morning, opened my laptop, I think I found one really long lecture about vegan diet - in fact it was about pregnancy and how food is improving it. I didn't watch it to the end - instead I woke my wife up and told her that from this day I'm vegan. (and I want to get pregnant - ha ha). Normally she laughed. 

But I really did. My wife if a pharmacist and was helping me a lot in my journey - I was making many cancellations in my daily habits.





The main reason wasn't the thought that I'm fat or stuff like that - I just wanted to try! I never before eat two or more kilos of fruit a day. I started eating a lot of salads and fresh vegetables every day.I forgot how hamburger look like - NO I'm lying - I started making veggie burgers. 

Did you know?
- meat can be replaced with seeds
- milk can be home made
- sugar is not obligatory for sweets

I used to eat a lot of bread, sweets, conditory products.... In many occasions I felt that I have a heavy burden in my stomach - but now not.
One friend told me - Vegan? That means you are hungry!
Totally not true! But as a result of that I lost 10 kg in six mouths, and I was not hungry, I was eating as much I wanted.



 I hope you agree with me - see you soon!

time with my kid

Here is my idea - how to make a quality time with your children.

I'll name it - Make a tree

First of all - during a quiet time ( maybe some music ), make some thinking, prepare a simple sketch, just to be sure - everything turns out as planned.



Prepare all planned materials (wood boards, screws, tools, etc

DO IT :)_____________________It's very important to clean up the mess you make after installation. I must say while doing that I forgot to take some pics. :)

Now comes a pat when you accept some help from your kid and make some painting, brushing, making yourselves dirty.







 When you have a good coloured surface - green as shown, comes the funny part. Using all the imagination you and your kid have Start decorating the tree.

Use all kinds of brushes, paint etc. and START!


We had such a good time (ok she cried a bit - something was't as she planned).


PLEASE don't forget to make a star on the top of the tree - my daughter says that is the most important thing of all :)
