It was a rough day on my work. What is worse it will remain busy for a next two months as well. I will need a lot of strength and patience…
Few days ago I made acount in Facebook, a friend of mine from USA posted some photos from our stay in Japan last november and it was the only way for me to see them. No, don`t worry, I will not leave Opera. Facebook looks too messy, without any order and too much informations…. of useless kind. When I was there I contacted some relatives from Croatia, we exchanged some notes…. and that`s about it. But, then one girl put friends request, which I would refuse, but… She has a same surname like me :eyes: My surname is very rare in Serbia, I don`t think there are more than 50 people that share it and we are all relatives. Now, I was a bit surprised, because I didn`t expect this to happen on my first day there. We exchanged few messages and now I will send her our family tree, so maybe her parents would help me to fill some blanks there. She is 17 and therefore too young to know about family. And she and her brother thought they were alone with that name in whole Vojvodina (north part of Serbia). Part of family from my fathers line always had a lot of kids but I know only some of them – and this girl and her family could be of some other branch unknown to me until now.
I have almost finished clearing my notifications here and soon I will go to bed. I will not sleep but just lie there, listening some music.

What happens at work?
That is :insane: Darko!! I also have a facebook account, but hardly go there… The one girl that was in primary school with me added me… Got my e-mail and now she is spamming my mail with loads of shit… :irked:I actually, really, definitely hate facebook…
Lorenzo – too much to work… too much… :rip:Adele – I just sent her family tree graphic, we will see what her parents will say; but I know we must be relatives, this surname is too rare;Work is just a work….
Facebook is…Facebook. I find it quite useful for keeping in touch with friends and family, especially with those who live abroad, but Opera is far better for sharing photos and stories. Strange experience about that girl – it would be interesting if she is a distant relative of yours.Hope all goes well with your work.
Much work can be stressful but it is better than few work, strategically speaking.
Welcome to the club of those who don't like Facebook! I don't have it. And i'm so :happy:!!!And, what to say about the girl… world is small, you know… 🙂
That's pretty cool! I used to use facebook and got fed up with it. 😆
Goodnight Darko. :zzz:Hope it works out about finding your missing family links. 🙂
I don't belong to Facebook or MySpace. That would be too much for me to contend with. Opera is perfect for me.That's interesting about finding a possible relative. Several years ago, I spent about two years doing some research looking for a relative and probably called over a hundred people. I discovered many cousins I never knew I had in the city and state in which I was born. One man I met on the Internet has a hobby of helping people with research and he lives in the same city and lives next door to one of my cousins. His best friend is also a cousin. Small world.
I am glad you found a family member there Darko,yes,you last name its an unusual one! :zip: When I created a FaceBook account ,it was because I wanted to see Yannis and Vaias pictures 😀 I was surpised to find a msg from a girl in London telling me she has the same last name as my Maiden name,(I usually use my Maiden Name since my late husband was a very well known New Yorker), my surprise on the message was becausemy parents were orphans and we had no ralatives we knew….I dicovered she is a nice my first cousins daughter…The Interent can bring lost family members together.However we can convice them to become Opera members since Opera PWNS!!! FaceBook is way too disorganized to get my full attention ..thanks for sharing your story Darko :)I hope you get a good rest G/Night :yes:
Facebook can be useful like that. Kim found two half-brothers she didn't even know existed through that. But, like you say, it's full of too much useless information from people who add you simply because you were in the same nursery school as them. :irked: Social networking used to mean something completely different to that.
I'm sorry work has been so crazy busy. :awww: Hope yer eating yer Wheaties to keep up with the next few months.Lemme know if you ever 😛 need a swift kick or a fire lit under your butt. 😮 Cool about finding (likely) family. :yes: Personally, I can't keep up with the family I got, and that suits me fine. 😆 And Opera is making my head spin. :faint: Too. Many. Feeds!
Thank you all. I slept for a solid 9 hours and woke up in the same position I went to bed :insane:What I dislike the most about Facebook is that it is based on a short messages members are exchanging on each other`s "walls" or personal ones. This is not how you can get to know people and understand them. Or, you need a lot of time, at least. In Opera, it is much more important what you write or put in your posts and this is what shows the way of thinking. Then you may like it or not and it will help you make decision of do you want to know person more or not.I will have to wait for her response now, I snet her family tree and now they will have to study it and find (possible) connections.It was a nice surprise, anyway 🙂
Hi Carol, nightowling again? 😀
what a drag! I hope you feel better and work ameliorates. FACEBOOK, just a hint, you can block many applications, like "What Sort of Martial Arts Hero Would You Like to Be in Your Dreams?" and so forth… that may save you a little time and energy 😀 but the rest of us like to ponder these things… 🙂
Facebook is totally different. Not least because it's a social networking site, whereas Opera is that, and blogging, but it's more of a community. I hate Facebook, but I can keep up to date with my family there. The bad thing is that everyone who's even distantly related to me adds me.. Though it's nice to find out. I hope you get your answers soon :up:
Jill – "What Sort of Martial Arts Hero Would You Like to Be in Your Dreams?":lol: Actually, I like that one 😆 :lol:Kimmie – I resisted the pressure from family for a long time but I really wanted to download these photos :awww: Then I gave up :cry:But I will stay here more, that is for sure 😀
Wow, world is small 🙂 Hope you sleep well tonight.
Yes I was a little bit Darko. 😀
Love that song. In fact, I remember when the album first came out.Good luck on your ancestry seach. :up:
There is another song I have in my mind nowhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CC_8g_QRTLY&feature=related😀
Mit – I will, this night as well :DCarol – I have noticed you`ve left just after my comment, so I guessed you were asleep 🙂
😀 The Corrs :heart:
Nope, I wasn't sleeping. I was cusing out players on Poker Stars. Swearing up a storm all night. 😀
My fav Pretenders song is "Mystery Achievement", the last song on their first album. I was going to give a youTube link, but all the versions suck. "Every day (uh huh)
Each day I find (oh yeah)
Are so unreal.
Are so unreal…"
Marike – somehow I knew you would like them :DCarol – ah, ok then :DEd – I know that one :up: and you are right, all recordings on You Tube sucks, most of them made by phone or small cameras :yuck:
The Coors are :up: *hums* 😀
Do you like The Corrs, Carol? I am listening that concert right now, sipping my coffee, enjoying early morning, getting ready for job….:)
Have a good day, Dare. I should be sleeping.
You are a real early bird, Darko. 🙂
Thank you Ana! 😮
Yes I am. Off to job soon 🙂
Wish you a great day, Darko and good night to you Jen. 🙂
:p no making fun of it being your long lost daughter.. Damnit.. :devil: facebook is only good for photos.. But not mobile friendly as you can only easily load pics via a application :doh: rather frustrating to use..
I'm probably gonna get cuffed behind the ear for this one but I thought Jen said Anal :insane: don't hurt me :left:
:sst: you not gonna believe me but I saw the same thing, just didn't want to say it…
😆 we're going to hell :devil:
:awww: guess so…. See you there
I didn't see it that way. :angel:
:sst: no, not really 😀
Chrissie is cool! :DFacebook is something I use to exchange photos too, although lately (I must admit), I have been visiting more than once a week :o.Can't stand to be there more than a few minutes in a row, though.
Ana – It was very stressful so far plus my coleague make it worse with his unthinking actions :irked:Java – I hope you slept well :)*kicking wolfie just to make him behave*Marike – yes, you are going to hell :PMik – yes like I believed you 😛
