Nope it's not about Spice girls. In every girls life there comes a moment when we start doubting our potential, our strength and well everything. We might even think "why was i born a woman?!" . It happens, as shit happens. When life throws in a challenge, it is because you need to respond to it and grow out of it stronger.Therefore,
"When in doubt, consult Rosie the Riveter"

And also, it's nice to feel like a super hero from time to time.

Just in case you didn't know i love doing thing for no purpose, just for the laughs. I refer to such things as "recreational activities".
Since things have gone viral, the internet is full of these things. Batman-ing and plunking come to mind. I was introduced to the world of planking when i read an article on the Guardian- i instantly knew i had to try it. I was hooked! I find it exceptionally relieving doing things for no reason... It reminds me of the good days as a child when you had no responsibilities and you could just play all day. It gives you that feeling as you get some moments of doing nothing!
So planking i did.
Exhibit A: Group plank at a rock n roll summer party in Aegina
Exhibit B: I planked the next day at the beach, on top of a car nonetheless!
Exhibit C: I even planked after i said goodbye to my great friend Sandy, who went to France to study psychology and eat les croissants! It helped loose the sadness

I like planking and i cant hide it. I even dared my boss to plank one day. Needless to say i have of course planked at work. Anyway, so i was thinking how brilliant it is, not just planking, but doing things for fun. It's even better when you see people from all around the world do it. (google planking)
But then I realized, I always use to do it- i just didnt share the pics with anyone. Yes, i was shy back then! I would like to introduce to you, the good old days of me doing a variation of planking. I give you President-ing or as my friend called it Evita Peron-ing.
The act of president-ing is fairly simple. Follow these instructions :
1.You go to a place like a balcony or where you have a comparative advantage of height and ...
2.Pretend you are saluting millions of people who came to see you and smile whilst your friend takes your pic.

The story behind this is simple. I used to act as a President for a non-governmental association of my university. My friend Bill acted as treasurer at the time and both of us are a bit mental. One day (the day the first pic was shot, 2008 or 2009) we were on an excursion at Nafplio and when we reached to top of the castle we noticed all of the association members where gathered underneath. So Bill kindly suggested i wave hello at my "followers" and so i did. Ever since, every single time we go on a trip with Bill, we take a picture like that (second pic from this past weekend at the island of Mykonos).
So i wonder, have you ever done something like this?Whats your recreational activity?? And yes, if you attempt this i want to see your pics!!

I recently was a guest blogger for constantinecallaghan.wordpress.com . The post talks about how as a media worker i viewed the respective field. The post is written in a semi-serious way as it was intended for a serious blog, with a personal note of fun at the end- of course!

Two things i'd like to point out.
Since Constantine delayed about 2 weeks to publish it, i no longer work in the media. I resigned one week ago. I'm very happy for that! :)
Unfortunately, Constantine also failed to upload the pic I chose for this post... But since that picture was vital for the understanding of the moral of the story - oh well, sort of - here is it.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you "fun in the office" ! (when the cat is away, the mice will play)
|planking easily qualifies as "fun in the office"|
How do you have fun in the office?
