Faced with an imminent cancer diagnosis, I see myself in need to change my ways to avoid extinction. I must make room in my life for healthy eating, regular exercise, a more focused blog, perhaps even some chemotherapy now and then.
As you have already noticed, I’ve simplified the layout of this blog, going back to the version I used initially. The new layout is less distracting and more intimate. The top posts and fancy badges have moved to the footer.
The gravatar has changed too. I’m not really as handsome as in the old one. (Sorry ladies.) The new one is more me than the real one used to be. As to my name, now I dropped the Anglicized version for the authentic Romanian one father gave me: Vincentiu. I want to make friends with you, so I might as well be honest. Rest assured, I have never lied about anything, yet I feel that I have not be as open to you as I could have been.
The stuff I’ll write about here will also change. Topics that until now have been of little concern to me, such as nutrition, lifestyle, society, and even the outdoors will be regularly discussed.
I’ll still be posting ‘almost-poems’ and other creative writing, but I am resolved to become a more practical person, hoping in this way not only to prolong my existence, but also to enjoy life more.
In the future I even plan to purchase a camera and venture outdoors, but I must take things one at a time. This week, after many delays, I will finally visit the doctor to get some x-rays done.
What will they show? Is the boy truly cancerous? How many tumors does he have? Where are they located? Can he be saved? Or will he perish young?
