Let me begin with ELTE

So, no worries, I just like to keep the alphabetical order, later I’ll remember this way, what’s left. You know, I’ve started  to study at the university in 2008,  I was studying for 2 long years, then we (I mean me and the university) mutually started to hate each other. So basicaly after 2 years I haven’t got any courses done. Then I had some study-free years (not counting the things I’ve learnt at work, of course). Recently, in february 2014, I’ve got back to the university and continued my studies. Right now I’m in my 7th semester (and hopefully the last van for the BSc degree).

So far so good, I’ve 4 courses for this last semester and I hope that none of them will have such difficulties, as the worst I’ve done in last semester. There was a 2 phase exam, first a written, then an oral part (but only if the written was good enough). The topic was nearly 150 pages of formal written definitions, thesises, lemmas and you should learn them exactly character by character. Once I’ve answered a question right, and an s letter was circled, because the teacher tought, that I wrote an S instead of s. As you may know, I usually write printed letters, and in this case s and S look like the same, the only difference is in size. So my half page answer was right (except the letter s), and I’ve got only the quarter of the points for my answer. So if you don’t know everything exactly, you have no chance to pass. This time, after the check of the written part, three of us were asked to go to the dean’s office (the dean was officially the teacher), we had our oral exam there. When I was asked, I was quite happy, I was almost sure, that I’ll pass this time.

During the oral exam, I was the second in row. The first student started to present his knowledge, during his presentation, the dean asked some questions, and we could see, that the student had no idea about the meanings of tzhose questions. He has passed, but it was quite close. Then came my turn. I’ve written one and a half pages, and started to present it. After I was over half of a page, the dean started asking me too. He could see, that I understend him and I can answer his questions too, but I was sometimes a bit uncertain, so I’ve got a B, and my page hasn’t even been flipped and read by the dean. I still cannot believe I’ve made it! :)

So hopefully this is my last semester during the BSc phase, I’ve  already annonced my thesis (which is about a web application I’ve written last year, but I’ve never finished it, now the time is here), and I’ve already sent my application for the MSc class. I’ve already started to finish my thesis application, I think there’s not much work left with the code itself. The worst part will be the documentation, I still hate writing those.

My blog. Reinvented..

Hi there,

I know it was quite a long time ago, but I’ve just decided to give a bit of life to this blog again. First of all I should create some tags or categories, then I’ll go one by one and write some words about it, what happened with me or in my perspective regarding the topic. Here are my ideas:

TECH: mainly work or ICT related topics, new technologies (I like to keep up with anything new in the world of ICT – when it’s not about processes)

ELTE: things related to my university (my lessons and how much I hate the administrational things, just because hungarians like to tell, how bad is it for them..)

SEEN: Places, cities, sights I have seen (have I ever mentioned I like to travel and see new things?)

SPORT: Anything I do to be healty and ready for challanges (You know my phylosophie: “Find your limits and step over them!”)

LIFE: Pretty much anything else (what happened to me, my feelings, that I usually keep only to myself, and so on)

So this is a new beginning, I hope it won’t end soon. As always, I’d really love to have topic-related positive comments, I hope they are still working fine. I know the WP version is a bit outdated, but I’ll update it, hopefully this week. Be calm and keep reading!

Hello world!

Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start blogging!

Back again..

Yeah, I’m here again, I mean, today I realised again, that I have this blog, and it’s empty (at least it’s empty when I look only the last months). So I thought, why not, and decided to write something. My last post was about, huhh, dunno. I’ll look for it, what was it about, and summarize all the things shortly from that time I wrote that..

UPDATE: I’ve just read my last post.

There was the time, when the roommate-wanna-be Erasmus students arrived to Budapest, it was a thursday afternoon. E called me from EC, she had a problem, there was no key in the building for my room, somehow they’ve lost all of them, so why I don’t go back to EC and let them in. Then I told, that I won’t be there till next monday, so the guests should have gone to an other room. Then I’ve bought two copies of my room key, left them by E. Next day the maid made my other beds ready to move in, but the guests were so happy with their temporary room, that they asked not to move to me (they had an own bathroom, and some other cool stuff). So that’s the story, why I have a huge room alone :) . And the story goes further..

Yeah, finally the time arrived, when my flat’s paperwork was finished, so I’ve left EC, and moved into my all new flat. I had 2 hard weeks. I got up at 6 am, worked from 7am to 3 pm, then moved to the flat, and worked (furniture, appliances and many other thing) there till 1-3 am, than I got back to EC for sleep. But that has ended, and 23.12.2011. I’ve moved into the flat. My brother lives also there, so I’m not alone, but he’s not the best company at all. The worst thing is, that it doesn’t matter for him, how messy is everything, he doesn’t have a need for order. I’m trying to make him better in it, but no hope by this time.

An other thing is, that I started working. The weird thing is, that I’ve applied for some jobs at once, and for two weeks, there were nothing, not calls, neither mails. After two weeks, that was like all of papers got to their place, and for a week, every day I’ve got at least one new invitation for a job. Okay, there were also slower places, because last week I’ve also get a new one,. Now I’m fully satisfied with my job, I’m working at IT Services Hungary Kft. as Application Administrator. That is the hungarian division of T-Systems International GmBH. I’m in the BMW Web Team. It has 5 members and we are operating many internet and intranet servers of BMW.

Long time no see..

The summer is about to end, the nights are getting colder and colder, the people around me are also changing, but nothing special, just usual. I’ve realised again, that the thing, that I’m writing these posts in english, makes me more honest. And I’ve also realised, how stupid I am, again, like I did it several times before (as A said, I’m slow..). But let me begin, where I have left last time.

My summer was a bit disorganised, I mean I had several programs, but most of them was like a last-minute action, and they kicked each other, so I spent just a minimal time with my friends. There was a Summer University, here at ELTE, The Human Sciences and the IT Section was living here at EC and their presentations were at ELTE Lágymányos Campus. I was hanging around them (I mean B :) ) that week. I’ve also spent some time on tours around Budapest, and visited some places with my family around Esztergom too. There was also an EC campaign trip to Prague and Bratislava, we had a great time there. I’ve missed this year the EC freshmen camp, so some of the freshmen are unknown for me.

Now I’m living at 321.EC again, because my flat is not ready to move in. (Okay, it’s ready for a long time, but its papers are not. So I’m living now here as a guest. I think (or I thought before) I will get Erasmus students for roommates, but I’m alone in a huge room (I’m almost certain, that there won’t be more of them). So I miss the company. I know, it’s hard to belive, but I miss the company, that’s why I’m never in my room (of course there are also other causes :) ). At least some of You are able to imagine, that it’s bad, I need the company. First, it was R, who told me, that I’m gonna hate living alone (or with my brother, whatever..), than told me others the same. It was hard to belive for me too, but I can see clearly now, and I feel the same as A.

When I started writing this post, I had the inspiration for it, but now that’s gone, and I don’t know why. I could tell, that it disappeared when a friend told me, that the Internet Access of the EC is very weak, some of the students has connection, but most of them are offline. But I feel free, it’s not my problem anymore despite of the users find me every time. I should print an “I’m not the internet guy anymore” sign and put it on my door.

I’ve planned to write an other paragraph about my last days, but now I think I won’t, I will do it later. Yeah, I’ve liked it. :)

The summer is here!

It’s a bit weird, writing a post with this title, while I’m travelling to home by train, and there is a storm out there, but it’s totally okay, if you think about the storm signals of the lake Balaton. Anyway, the summer is here, it’s the beginning of june, and the highest temperature of the day is over 30 degrees every day. Sadly, we can feel it in my room to, that’s the worst part of the highest floor.

The summer is a bit more different from the other seasons, the university is also has a break, most of the mates are going home, so it’s time to find roommates for the summer too. The main program of my summer is to find a job, and a place to live.

Finding a job is a bit slow, because the answers are slower than the usual. I thought, that I am the one, who answers the mails slowly, but now I see, that I am really fast. It,s okay, that some of these mails are needed to go through more people, but they are slower than they could be because this reason. The other bad part is that I should wait for answers from some places before I can find others.

Last weekend was a bit crazy in the dorm, because almost all of the students tought, that they have to go home, because there won’t be electricity in the building. Yeah, that was the plan of the incompetents, but the electricity service provider said, that this plan is impossible, so the big ‘power down of the building will be on next friday. So last weekend was a bit weird, the dorm was empty. That was the time, when I’ve realised again, how bad is to live alone. So it’s planned also to find someone to live with.

It’s finished. Finally I feel, that the my room is able to live in it. Most of the renovation works are also done, almost everything is cleaned and functional. I gathered also some of my stuff from the server room to here. My roommate is a bit slower at the “making a home from a room” thing, as You can see.

The room is ready

My new room is the 317. It’s a larger one, one of the two rooms having two windows.

The windows are facing South, we have a wonderful view to South-Buda.

It is a room for three people, but it has not been finished yet, so we can not use the whole room, that’s why we are living there two of us. I have my double bed again, and B has a single bed. As it is usual for him, he rarely use his bed to sleep, its first use case is to hold things higher than the floor, but he says, it will be better in this room, than the last one.

The sound system is working, I tried it yesterday, while I was listening to Knights Of Cydonia, we were able to feel the horses on the furniture. The projector is also ready to use, we used it for the Champions League Final last time. The kitchen corner was used everyday, after moving, I cleaned it. And the smell of the room is already breathable. It had constantly the just paint smell, but now it has the fragrance of the washed clothes.

Sometimes I feel like I have to hide somewhere, think things again and so on or just to be out of sight. It could be really easy. So there are many places around, where You can have lunch or just a drink, there is a wide range of time intervals when You can be hungry. It should mean, that there is only a little chance, to have a known company, while You’re eating somewhere, sometime.

But the fact is, it’s not true. Today, I had lunch with a friend at a restaurant. It was a bit sooner, than the default lunchtime, so there was no crowd there. While I was sitting down, I heard my name. There were already eating two friends, and that’s not ower yet. While we were eating next to the cash desk, there were also two more known people, they were buying food, to take it away.

So it’s easy to tell, that it’s because the small world effect, but should it be so small. I mean, it’s okay, that you have 1 or maybe 2 friends there, but 5 seems to me a lot. Finally, it was not a “one in a lifetime” action, these numbers are often the same. So be always nice, there’s always someone watching you.

I know that my blog is a bit demotivating, and depressing, so I made an alternative version of it for Hungarians:

An other funny thing is the Karinthylizátor, especially for Hungarians too. (google is your friend and wiki is your girlfriend..)

Have I ever mentioned, how can I hate, when I write about some bad feelings, and the reasons of them, than one of the first comments is written by one of the causes, asking about exact names, doing this like he/she doesn’t know, that he/she is the reason..
